Directive transparence : information réglementée

15/09/2022 14:00

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 15, 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 third quarter fiscal 2022 results, which ended July 31, 2022.

Andrew Cheung, CEO of 01 Communique, stated, "I am pleased with the progress we made to date and look forward to the rest of the year. We have had a very busy year and coincidently many major projects are coming together at the same time. We completed the working Proof-of-Concept ("PoC") for what we believe to be the World's First Quantum-Safe Blockchain. We plan on having it ready to demonstrate to our partner for use as a Quantum-Safe Wallet as well as filing a patent application related to the invention by the end of September of this year. We also moved closer to completing our IronCAP X™ business edition. We plan to have it ready for commercial use by the end of October of this year. Last but not least, the integration with one of our partner's military-grade Hardware Security Module (HSM) announced in February earlier this year is also in its completion stage. We will keep our investors posted on the progress of these developments."

Highlights:

  • Revenue for the quarter was $236,002 (2021 - $211,831) and year to date $782,637 (2021 - $722,324). The trend of working from home continues to be popular in Asia-Pacific which is contributing to the acceptance of the Company's remote access business in that market. The Company receives recurring royalties from the Company's Asia-Pacific remote access business whereby DoMobile, a secure remote access solution, is exclusively marketed by the Company's partner in Japan. In addition, development fees were recognized in 2022 for the completed portion of the Quantum-Safe Blockchain project.
  • The loss for the quarter was $190,242 (2021 - $228,762) and year to date $480,762 (2021 - $406,278). The Company is continuing with its investment in the development and commercialization of its IronCAP™ technology.
  • The adjusted loss for the quarter was $135,374 (2021 - $156,135) and year to date $334,044 (2021 - $264,233). The adjusted loss excludes stock-based compensation and depreciation which are non-cash expenses. The Company completed the quarter with $858,550 of cash.
  • As previously announced, the Company was commissioned to develop the World's First Quantum-Safe Blockchain. This revolutionary blockchain is essentially a transformation of the proven Solana Blockchain into a quantum-safe version that can be incorporated in Tokens, NFTs, Smart Contracts for Metaverse, DeFi, and more. The technology developed for this project is independent of the type of Blockchain that is in use and as such it can be applied to not just the Solana Blockchain but to any Blockchain. The working Proof-of-Concept ("PoC") was recently completed in August and has been accepted by our partner in the project. The final working demonstration of a Quantum-Safe Wallet is expected to be completed by the end of September of this year.
  • The Company continued with development work on the IronCAP X™ business edition, 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 by the end of October of this year.
  • Since February this year we have been busy working with integrating our IronCAP into one of our partner's military-grade HSM. The project is now in its completion stage.
  • We continue to work with Hybrid Financial Ltd. ("Hybrid") as they provide investor relations services to the Company. Hybrid was engaged to heighten market and brand awareness as well as broaden the Company's reach within the investment community both in Canada and the United States.
  • Subsequent to the end of the quarter on September 7th we completed a non-brokered private placement comprising of 562,500 units at a price of $0.20 per unit for gross proceeds of $112,500. Each unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share for a period of 24 months from the closing date at an exercise price of $0.35 per warrant share.
