01 Communique Provides Update on Business Developments and First Quarter Fiscal 2024 Results

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / March 21, 2024 / 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (the "Company") (TSXV:ONE)(OTC PINK:OONEF), one of the first-to-market, enterprise level cybersecurity providers for the quantum computing era, is pleased to report the Company's first quarter fiscal 2024 results, which ended January 31, 2024.

Andrew Cheung, CEO of the Company, commented, "Entering 2024, we are witnessing significant increased attention in quantum-safety in many technological fields including AI and cryptocurrencies. We believe 2024 is going to be a pivotal year. Just to name a few examples, in February, Apple announced their quantum-safe version of iMessage which is being offered in the latest iOS 17.4. This was a wakeup call to all nay-sayers. Later, in March, quantum-safety also caught the attention of the founder of Ethereum. This triggered discussion in the Ethereum community on how to protect the cryptocurrency against quantum computers. Our Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) which is incorporated in IronCAP™ does just that. It was designed to help the quantum-safe journey of everyone in the world."

Andrew Cheung continued, "The major part of our development is behind us. We have completed a number of very practical PQC applications allowing us the ability to showcase our technology and assist our partners in providing enhanced security against bad actors using quantum computers. Throughout 2024 our plan is to continue working with our existing partners as well as engage new partners to increase awareness in IronCAP™ and generate revenue. With the major part of development complete we have been able to reduce our operating expenses with a goal to keep them in line with the level of ongoing recurring revenue."

Financial Highlights:

  • The loss for the quarter was $112,281 (2023 - $247,508). The adjusted loss excluding stock-based compensation and depreciation, which are non-cash expenses, was $56,145 (2023 - $185,895) a reduction of $129,750. The Company completed the quarter with $219,464 of cash and a GIC.
  • Cash operating expenses which exclude stock-based compensation and depreciation for the quarter were $147,725 (2023 - $285,295) a reduction of $137,570.
  • Product development expenses decreased by $95,936. A number of development projects were completed in fiscal 2023 allowing the Company to reduce development expenses. The Company makes use of third-party independent contractors for the majority of its product development.
  • SG&A expenses, net of stock-based compensation decreased by $41,687.
  • Ongoing cash operating expenses have been significantly reduced. The goal is to keep them in line with the level of ongoing recurring revenue.
  • Revenue for the quarter was $98,470 (2023 - $106,803) a decrease of $8,333. Revenue was negatively impacted by a weakening of the Japanese Yen to the Canadian dollar.
