01 Communique Reports Results for Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2013

TORONTO, Dec. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (TSX: ONE) today announced results for its fourth quarter 2013 which ended October 31, 2013. The loss for the fourth quarter 2013 was $357,631 compared to $505,399 in 2012 a decrease of $147,768. Excluding non-cash expenses for stock-based compensation and depreciation the adjusted loss for the fourth quarter 2013 was $271,899 compared to $295,991 in 2012. The Company completed the year with $3,072,281 of cash and cash equivalents.

"The cash operating expenses to run our business, excluding the costs associated with intellectual property, were $403,456 for the fourth quarter 2013 and we expect them to continue at approximately this level for the first quarter 2014 at which time they will be re-evaluated," said Andrew Cheung, President and CEO for 01 Communique. "With expenses at this level we believe we will be able to continue with development of a competitive product offering while carrying on with our patent lawsuits against LogMeIn Inc. ("LogMeIn") and Citrix Systems Inc. ("Citrix")."

Citrix Litigation Update -
On October 29, 2013 the Patent Trial and Appeals Board ("PTAB") rendered their decision affirming the Examiner's finding of validity of our patent number 6928479 (the "'479 Patent") in respect of Citrix's appeal of the results of the inter partes reexamination of the '479 Patent. The appeal process is now complete at the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") and we have written to the Court requesting that the stay be lifted so that we can proceed to trial.

Background on the Citrix litigation:
On February 2, 2006, a lawsuit was filed by the Company in the United States District Court, Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, against Citrix alleging infringement of the '479 Patent. As part of the litigation Citrix requested an inter partes reexamination of the '479 Patent by the USPTO, and also requested a stay in the Court proceedings. The stay was granted by the Judge in the case. The Company proceeded with the reexamination process and in July 2010 received a Right of Appeal Notice ("RAN") from the USPTO confirming the patentability of the claims that were part of the inter partes reexamination. Citrix appealed that decision to the USPTO's PTAB. The PTAB has now rendered their decision affirming the validity of the '479 Patent. Citrix has appealed that decision to the United States Court of Appeal for the Federal Circuit and that appeal is now in process. We are confident that we will prevail in this appeal as well.

LogMeIn Appeal Update -
We disagree with the jury's finding of non-infringement in the LogMeIn case and, as previously announced, on June 26, 2013 we filed a notice of appeal with the United States Court of Appeal for the Federal Circuit (Appeal Nos. 2013-1479). LogMeIn has filed a cross appeal, (Case No. 2013-1525) in respect of the Court Order concluding that our patent was valid and enforceable. Their cross appeal has been consolidated with our appeal. To date all briefs that are due at this point in time have been filed by both parties. The appeal is in process and we remain confident in the merits of our appeal.
