TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 11, 2020 / 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (the "Company") (TSX-V:ONE) is pleased to report that the Company has made significant developments during the Second Quarter with the launch of the IronCAP X cybersecurity product for email/file encryption, made commercially available on April 23, 2020. The Company is continuing with plans for the development and commercialization of wider product offerings. The development team is continuing work on the IronCAP family of encryption products with applications for remote access / VPN vendors, cloud storage vendors, credit card security vendors, password management and increased web site security.

Andrew Cheung, 01 Communique CEO, stated, "I am pleased with the successful launch of our new IronCAP X email encryption product on April 23rd and the receipt of our patent application number to facilitate seamless sending of encrypted emails to a recipient. We are now continuing with the development of our other products towards commercialization. Our goal is to offer products with the most advanced and secure quantum safe cryptographic system available. The funds from our recent financing will be used to develop these products."

Business Development Highlights:

The Company has continued with work to help ensure the successful commercialization of IronCAP X and IronCAP API. During the Second Quarter, the Company focused on the marketing and successful launch of IronCAP X which was made commercially availability on April 23, 2020. Part of the marketing strategy included a virtual demo after the Company's annual shareholder meeting and a free downloadable personal usage platform. To download the free version of IronCAP X, click on the following link: https://www.ironcap.ca/ironcap-x/personal As well as completing and launching IronCAP X, the development team continued to make improvements to IronCAP API which has been available to vendors since the summer of 2019.

In April, the Company announced that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with Nexusguard Consulting Limited to work towards a formal business partnership in bringing quantum-safe IronCAP cryptography technology (ICC) to customers in the Asia Pacific including Mainland China and Hong Kong. The MOU will see Nexusguard Consulting Limited and 01 Communique working together on cybersecurity offerings as well as marketing initiatives in the various markets operated by both companies.

On May 29th subsequent to the end of the quarter the Company strengthened its balance sheet completing 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. Following the closing of the offering, the Company has 81,918,806 common shares issued and outstanding. 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 will use the gross proceeds of the offering of Units for product development and general working capital purposes.

On June 9th the Company announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") has issued the Company a receipt for its Patent Application No.16/893,709 for a Cryptographic System and Method that facilitates sending encrypted emails to a recipient. 01 Communique has filed a patent application directed to an invention that is being used in a future version of IronCAP X (to be released very soon) and facilitates sending encrypted emails to a recipient without having to first ask the recipient to become a registered user of IronCAP X. This invention enables a seamless plug-and-play mechanism to automatically invite new IronCAP X users fueling a viral growth pattern.

Second Quarter 2020 Fiscal Results

The Company reported a loss for its second quarter 2020, which ended April 30, 2020 of $249,133 compared to a loss in 2019 of $196,043. As at April 30th the Company had $225,454 of cash and cash equivalents and GIC.

The adjusted loss for the quarter, which excludes stock-based compensation and depreciation which are non-cash expenses, was $205,924 (2019 - $150,199). Revenue for the quarter of $73,297 (2019 - $74,685) was fairly consistent year over year.

The cash operating expenses, which excludes stock-based compensation, were $251,114 (2019 - $200,222) an increase of $50,892 reflecting the Company's ongoing investment in the development of products based on the IronCAP technology. In addition, the Company is now preparing 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.
