TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 10, 2020 / 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (the "Company") (TSXV:ONE) is pleased to report that the Company made significant developments during the Third Quarter with:

  • the signing of new business partnerships to market and sell IronCAP products,
  • the release of IronCAP X v1.1 incorporating the technology in the June 2020 patent application,
  • increased revenue resulting in close to breakeven financial results, and
  • added capital to allow the Company to allot a further $938,000 to continue advancing the growth of the Company's business and the development of products based on IronCAP technology.

The Company is continuing with sales and marketing activities to commercialize the recently released IronCAP X v1.1 and build partnerships with companies for the integration of the IronCAP API with third party applications.

Andrew Cheung, 01 Communique CEO, stated, "We are pleased with our new business partnership arrangements that are showcasing our IronCAP products. As we are focused on the growth of our business, the Company has made additional funds available to further advance our business and product marketing strategy." Mr. Cheung further stated, "We are seeing the success of our marketing activities through the substantial increase in usage in our remote access products, particularly in Japan with DoMobile. As the trend towards remote work continues due to the coronavirus pandemic, we anticipate that our remote access business will continue to show financial gains."

Business Development Highlights:

Business development activities have resulted in the signing of new partnerships during the third quarter with more agreements anticipated:

  • In July, the Company entered into a Partnership Agreement with a global technology and system integration company headquartered in Montreal, Quebec. Under the agreement, 01 Communique would provide tools to showcase the strength of our IronCAP cryptographic system designed to ensure safety against cyber-attacks from not only the conventional world of computers today but also against future attacks from quantum computers.
  • Also, in July the Company entered into a partnership agreement with leading Canadian cybersecurity firm Privacy Horizon Inc. ("Privacy Horizon" or "PHI") to sell IronCAP products. PHI enables organizations to build privacy and security controls more quickly, and IronCAP products are designed to protect users from cyber-attacks and personal information breaches.

In June the Company was issued a receipt for its U.S. Patent Application No.16/893,709 for a Cryptographic System and Method that facilitates sending encrypted emails to a recipient. In August IronCAP X v1.1 was released utilizing the June 9th patent application, offering a personal usage email encryption with a "seamless invitation" to automatically insert an invitation to non-IronCAP-X recipients to join IronCAP X and read the encrypted message. The end-to-end encryption of emails in IronCAP X is designed to offer complete protection and privacy for all our emails; including attachments.

During the Third Quarter, the Company's I'm InTouch remote access service user numbers have been on the rise, especially in Japan where it is marketed as DoMobile. As many companies have moved towards remote work in response to the coronavirus pandemic, this trend is expected to continue to show an increase in revenue.

In the Third Quarter, the Company strengthened its balance sheet with the completion of a non-brokered private placement of units ("Units"). Pursuant to the offering the Company issued a total of 1,683,334 Units raising aggregate gross proceeds of $202,000. Each Unit was issued at a price $0.12 and consists of one common share in the capital of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant.

The Company had $221,180 of cash and cash equivalents and GIC as at July 31. Subsequent to the end of the quarter warrants and options were exercised raising additional proceeds of $717,000. Combined with the cash equivalents and GIC on hand at July 31st the Company has $938,000 of cash available to fund the growth of the Company.

Third Quarter 2020 Fiscal Results

The Company reported a loss for its third quarter 2020, which ended July 31, 2020 of $39,816 compared to a loss in 2019 of $168,899. The Company reduced its adjusted loss for the quarter by $121,748 from $136,576 in 2019 to $14,828 for the third quarter 2020. The adjusted loss excludes stock-based compensation and depreciation which are non-cash expenses.

Revenue for the quarter was $235,160 compared to $77,555 in 2019 an increase of $157,605 a result primarily of the increase in business activity in Japan where the Company's partner, Hitachi Business Solution Creates Ltd. markets the Company's remote access service.

The cash operating expenses, which excludes stock-based compensation, were $206,882 (2019 - $190,058) an increase of $17,118. The Company continues to make an investment in the development of products based on the IronCAP technology. In addition, the Company is executing sales and marketing activities to commercialize the recently released IronCAP X as well as continuing in efforts to build partnerships with companies for the integration of the IronCAP API with third party applications.

About IronCAP and IronCAP X:

IronCAP is at the forefront of the cyber security market and is designed to protect our customers from cyber-attacks. IronCAP's patent-pending cryptographic system is designed to protect users and enterprises against the ever-evolving illegitimate and malicious means of gaining access to their data today as well as in the future with the introduction of powerful quantum computers. Based on improved Goppa code-based encryption it is designed to be faster and more secure than current standards. It operates on conventional computer systems, so users are protected today while being secure enough to safeguard against future attacks from the world of quantum computers. An IronCAP API is available which allows vendors of a wide variety of vertical applications to easily transform their products to ensure their customers are safe from cyber-attacks today and from quantum computers in the future.

IronCAP X, a new cybersecurity product for email/file encryption, incorporating our patent-pending technology was made available for commercial use on April 23, 2020. The new product has two major differentiations from what is in the market today. Firstly, many offerings in today's market store users secured emails on email-servers for recipients to read, making email-servers a central target of cyber-attack. Our new product, on the other hand, delivers each encrypted message end-to-end to the recipients such that only the intended recipients can decrypt and read the message. Consumer's individual messages are protected, eliminating the hackers' incentive to attack email servers of email providers. Secondly, powered by our patent-pending IronCAP technology, we believe our new product will be the world's first quantum-safe end-to-end email encryption system; secured against cyberattacks from today's systems and from quantum computers in the future. Consumers and businesses using our new products will have tomorrow's cybersecurity today.
