TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / June 16, 2022 / 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 second quarter fiscal 2022 results, which ended April 30, 2022.

Andrew Cheung, CEO of 01 Communique, stated, "I am pleased with the progress we made during the second quarter. We increased revenue by 20% allowing us to increase the investment in our product development specifically to accelerate our position in the area of quantum-safe blockchain facilitating quantum-safe tokens, NFTs, smart contracts, etc. We are close to completing the product development of our IronCAP X™ business edition, which we expect will be the world's first commercial-ready quantum-safe email security product. We strengthened our board of directors, entered into an agreement with Talent Summit, filed a new patent application based on exciting new technology and to help us get better value for our shareholders we retained the services of Hybrid Financial Ltd. for investor relations. I look forward to the rest of this year as we get ready to launch new products in conjunction with our partner, Talent Summit. We will keep our investors posted on the progress."

Highlights:

  • Increased revenue by 20% from Q2 2021 to $357,594.
  • The increase in revenue allowed for the increase in investment in product development which was increased by $51,335 to $190,212. These investments allow us to create a new generation of blockchain that is safe against attacks from quantum computers so that it can facilitate quantum-safe tokens, NFTs, smart contracts, etc. transactions while having high throughput that is comparable with that of credit card in the traditional world of finance. A PoC (proof-of-concept) is scheduled to be ready by the end of August and everything is going according to schedule. A separate announcement is expected when the PoC has been completed.
  • The loss for the third quarter 2022 was $82,879 and the Company completed the quarter with $849,375 of cash. The adjusted loss was $40,315 which excludes stock-based compensation and depreciation which are non-cash expenses.
  • Entered into an agreement with a consortium of highly successful crypto experts that selected the Company as their technology partner and Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) provider. The consortium (Talent Summit) is aggressively pursuing a new blockchain and commissioned the Company to develop the World's First Quantum-Safe Blockchain designed for Tokens, NFTs, Smart Contracts for the Metaverse, De-centralized Finance (DeFi). It is expected that this best-in-class quantum-safe blockchain will be resilient against cyber adversaries, including quantum attacks.
  • The Company has taken a minority position in Talent Summit and in addition will be compensated for the development project by way of a payment of $250,000 cash payable over the course of development of the project plus a 10% royalty for the ongoing share of the "Tokens" per transaction.
  • Strengthened the board of directors with the addition of Mr. Tyson Macaulay CISA, LEL CIE, who brings with him over twenty-five years of engineering and management experience in network, cloud and IoT security solutions.
  • Retained Hybrid Financial Ltd. ("Hybrid") to provide investor relations services to the Company. Hybrid has been engaged to heighten market and brand awareness for the Company and to broaden the Company's reach within the investment community both in Canada and the United States. Hybrid Financial has offices in Toronto and Montreal.
  • Filed an international patent application for quantum-safe steganography technology which allows covert hiding of sensitive data in any ordinary digital media. This revolutionary technology can be applied to a broad range of applications including NFTs, digital wallets, digital proof of ownership, etc. The ancient application of steganography technology is to "watermark". Other applications include subliminal messages in media such as audio and video clips. What 01 has created is a quantum-safe steganography method to hide large amount of digital data in pictures, audio, or video clips utilizing the Company's patent-protected IronCAP™ cryptographic technology.

The Company granted stock options pursuant to its stock option plan to directors and executives of the Company to purchase up to an aggregate of 900,000 common shares in the Company. The options were granted on June 15, 2022 and are exercisable at a price of $0.14 per share for a period of four years from the date of grant.
