TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / January 13, 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 fiscal 2021 results.

Andrew Cheung, CEO of 01 Communique, stated, “As the trend to work from home continues to be popular, we have seen our revenue increase during the year. We completed DoMobile V4, a new release of our remote access service, to help capitalize on this trend in Japan and look forward to a continued increase in subscriber numbers and revenue. This increase in revenue allowed us to increase our investment in the future of our company with continued development and commercialization of IronCAP™. We added an additional six partners to assist us in making IronCAP™ available around the globe. We expect more partners to come on board throughout 2022. Throughout the year we also continued with development of the business version of IronCAP X™, which we believe to be the world’s first quantum-safe email security product effectively preventing email phishing/fraud. We will provide an update to our shareholders as launch date gets closer. In addition to the business version our plan is to incorporate IronCAP™ into our existing remote access product making what we believe will be the world’s first quantum-safe remote access solution. As we enter 2022, we believe we are well positioned with strong technology and go to market strategy designed to build our business for the future.”

Financial highlights:

Revenue for the year ended October 31, 2021 was $885,345 (2020 - $521,791) an increase of $363,554. For the fourth quarter revenue was $163,021 (2020 - $171,964) a decrease of $8,943. As the trend to working from home continues to be popular our Asia-Pacific business has seen growth from our remote access service with an increase in both subscriber numbers and recurring revenue. Revenue for the fourth quarter 2021 consisted of recurring subscription revenue compared to previous quarters where there were also development fees associated with DoMobile v4 and one-time fees for server licenses.

The loss for fiscal 2021 was $656,847, consistent with the loss in 2020 of $657,168. For the fourth quarter the loss was $250,569 (2020 - $173,827) an increase of $76,742.

The adjusted loss for fiscal 2021 was $446,832 (2020 - $538,938) a decrease of $92,106. For the fourth quarter the adjusted loss was $182,599 (2020 - $156,687) an increase of $25,912. The adjusted loss excludes stock-based compensation and depreciation which are non-cash operating expenses.

The increase in revenue allowed for an increase in investment in the Company’s sales and marketing as well as product development initiatives which we believe will position the Company for future growth.

The Company completed the year with cash of $994,924.

Operational highlights:

The Company has entered into partnership agreements, all previously announced, with six more companies to bring IronCAP™ to their enterprise customers. IronCAP™ is now available through its ever expanding partnerships not only in North America but also throughout Asia/Pacific as well as Europe and Western Africa.

On November 9, 2021 the Company received a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) stating that the Company’s patent application (application no. 16/268,098) for a Cryptographic System and Method has been examined, prosecution is now closed and it is allowed for issuance as a patent.

The Company released a new version of the IronCAP™ API making it available for mobile platforms. This latest version allows mass adoption of IronCAP™ across virtually all computing environments including Windows, Linux, Mac, plus the newly added iOS and Android mobile platforms.

The Company successfully conducted a second annual global based Bounty Contest challenge. There were 807 cybersecurity challengers that attempted to crack IronCAP™‘s quantum-safe encryption during the one-month CAD$100,000 Bounty Contest. No contestants managed to break the code and IronCAP™’s encryption has again proven its resilience and robustness.

The Company released DoMobile v4, a new release of its secure remote access solution, that is exclusively marketed by the Company’s partner in Japan. The strong security underlying DoMobile allows for marketing not only to small to medium sized businesses, but also to government agencies, financial industries, health sectors, etc. which require a highly secure remote access environment. There are more than 3,800 corporations using DoMobile as their telework solution with the numbers continuing to grow.

The Company was awarded the Editor’s Choice as Top Remote Access Company 2021 by Enterprise Security Magazine. I’m InTouch, the Company’s “Zero Trust” solution, out ranked all industry competitors.

Conference Call Reminder and Information:

01 Communique will host a live teleconference allowing for questions and answers later today at 10:00AM EST (January 13, 2022) to discuss the Company’s results as well as providing an update on the business prospects for IronCAP™ and IronCAP X™.
