10/19/2005 5:10:38 PM

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 30, 2004--Lark Technologies Inc. (OTCBB:LRKT - News) reported record revenue and net income of $9,028,382 and $1,422,343 or $0.39 per share for the twelve months ending December 31, 2003 as compared to revenue and net income of $6,692,305 and $724,949 or $0.20 per share for the same period in 2002.

Revenue and net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2003 increased 31% and 196%, respectively to $2,269,894 and $229,378 or $0.06 per share, compared to revenue of $1,728,619 and net income of $77,522 or $0.02 per share for the same period in 2002. The revenue growth during the quarter over the comparable period in 2002 was the result of increased sales in most product lines, including areas relating to genomic DNA sequencing, with the fastest growth occurring in the UK custom sequencing. "In spite of the fact that we no longer had available federal net operating tax loss carryforwards, coupled with significant expenses associated with the pending merger with Genaissance Pharmaceuticals Inc., we posted a very solid fourth quarter," said Chief Executive Carl W.

Balezentis, Ph.D. said, "I am extremely pleased with the progress we have made over the past two and one half years in terms of fiscal stability and revenue growth. We are reporting our ninth consecutive profitable quarter, concluding with record revenue and net income for the year. We look forward to the opportunities and challenges we face in 2004 as we look to aggressively grow the service business following our merger with Genaissance."
