01 Communique Provides Update on Business Developments and Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results

Thursday, January 19, 2023 8:00 AM
01 Communique Laboratory, Inc.

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / January 19, 2023 / 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (the "Company") (TSXV:ONE)(OTCQB:OONEF), one of the first-to-market, enterprise level cybersecurity providers for the quantum computing era, is pleased to report the Company's 4th quarter fiscal 2022 results, which ended October 31, 2022.

Andrew Cheung, CEO of the Company, commented, "I am pleased with the progress we made during fiscal 2022 and look forward to the opportunity that is in front of us for 2023. In the environment we find ourselves in today, every organization is concerned about security and trying to ensure the protection of their data and systems from hackers. These security concerns are even more intensified with the advent of Quantum computing as current encryption standards may not be up to the task of defending against attacks by bad actors using Quantum Computers. Post-quantum cryptographic ("PQC") systems are essential for protection from this threat. Our IronCAP™ PQC technology provides that extra layer of security to help ensure organizations are protected now and in the future. The threat is real and I am very confident that IronCAP™ positions us to capitalize on the opportunity that lies ahead."

Operational Highlights:

  • As previously announced on January 17, 2023, the Company completed the integration of IronCAP™ into one of the Company's partners' military-grade Hardware Security Modules ("HSM') providing military grade protection for users' data and critical applications. This partnership was designed to develop and joint-market quantum-safe cybersecurity solutions for global businesses, organizations and governments to ensure cyber resilience in the post quantum environment. Now the Company's partner can add IronCAP™ FM ("Functional Module") making PQC functionality seamless while conforming with the latest standards set by NIST. The parties are now commencing joint-marketing activities.
  • Completed the first quantum-safe crypto wallet using a post-quantum cryptography (PQC) technology within IronCAP™ that is approved by the National Institute of Standards and Technology ("NIST"). A patent application has been filed for the underlying technology which can protect the endpoint of virtually all existing blockchains such as, but not limited to, Bitcoin and Ethereum. A demonstration of the wallet is available at
  • The Company continued with development work on a business edition of IronCAP X™, which is expected to be the world's first commercial-ready quantum-safe email security product. It is anticipated that it will be ready for commercial use in fiscal 2023.
  • The Company has signed a number of global partners and is prepared to capitalize on the quantum-readiness transformation market embraced by enterprises of all sizes internationally.

Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue for the 4th quarter was $244,183 (2021 - $163,021) an $81,162 increase and for the full year $1,026,810 (2021 - $885,345) a $141,465 increase. The contributing factors to the increase in revenue for fiscal 2022:
  • The trend of working from home continues to be popular in Asia-Pacific. This has contributed to the increase in subscriber revenue in the 4th quarter as well as throughout the year from the Company's remote access business, which is marketed on a subscription fee basis resulting in recurring royalties.
  • Receipt of development fees in the 3rd quarter for development of the first quantum-safe crypto wallet encrypted by a post-quantum cryptography (PQC) algorithm approved by the National Institute of Standards and Technology ("NIST").
  • The loss for the 4th quarter was $181,242 (2021 - $250,569) and year to date $662,004 (2021 - $656,847). The adjusted loss, which excludes stock-based compensation and depreciation which are non-cash expenses, for the 4th quarter was $161,352 (2021 - $182,599) and year to date $495,395 (2021 - $446,832). The Company completed the year with $637,179 of cash and GIC's.
  • The Company continued with its investment in the development and commercialization of its IronCAP™ technology, which resulted in the increase in selling, general and administrative as well as research and development expenses.

Grant of Stock Options

The board of directors of the Company has approved the granting of stock options pursuant to its stock option plan to certain directors and executives of the Company to purchase up to an aggregate of 1,285,000 common shares in the Company.
