01 Communique Reports Results for Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 and Provides an Update on its Patent Litigation

TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (ONE:TSX-V) today announced results for its third quarter 2014 which ended July 31, 2014. The loss for the quarter was $629,744 compared to a loss of $584,941 for the same period in 2013. Excluding non-cash expenses for stock-based compensation and depreciation the adjusted loss for the quarter was $438,470 (2013 - $235,187) an increase of $203,283. The Company completed the quarter with $1,607,879 of cash and cash equivalents.   

"Our adjusted loss from operations was $438,470 for the third quarter. We have implemented a number of cost savings initiatives, outlined below, which we expect will reduce our expenses and adjusted loss by $75,000 per quarter or $300,000 per year. We will continue to monitor our expenses closely with the goal to continue in the defense of our intellectual property and then to accelerate our product development," said Andrew Cheung, President and CEO for 01 Communique. "In respect of our patent litigation there have been several recent developments which are highlighted below."     

An update on the Company's patent lawsuit against Citrix Systems Inc. ("Citrix") follows.  

The Company alleges infringement of its U.S. patent number 6,928,479 ("'479 Patent") by Citrix's GoToMeeting and GoToMyPC product offerings. The Company is seeking past damages going back to August 9, 2005; being the date the '479 Patent was issued, as well as a permanent injunction prohibiting infringement. The case is taking place in the Northern District of Ohio. After receiving a positive decision from the USPTO's Patent Trial and Appeals Board ("PTAB") the Company requested and on February 14, 2014 the Court granted the request that the case be re-opened so that the stay can be lifted and the case proceed to trial. A claim construction tutorial and hearing is scheduled for November 12 and 13, 2014. Expert discovery is scheduled to be completed by January 16, 2015 following which a scheduling conference is expected to take place to set dates regarding filing and/or renewing dispositive motions, trial preparation and trial.

On May 30, 2014 Citrix filed a complaint in the United States District Court Central District of California alleging infringement of their U.S. Patent No. 7,219,233  by the Company's I'm InTouch Meeting product and requesting a declaratory judgment against the Company alleging that Citrix's GoToMeeting product offering does not infringe the "479 Patent". An amended complaint was filed on July 31, 2014 dropping the request for a declaratory judgment and alleging infringement of two additional patents, being U.S. Patent No. 8,127,019 and 8,325,896.

In respect of the inter partes re-examination of the '479 Patent at the request of Citrix, a Right of Appeal Notice was issued confirming the patentability of the claims that were part of the re-examination. Citrix filed a Notice of Appeal appealing that decision to the PTAB. On October 29, 2013 the PTAB rendered their decision affirming the Examiner's finding of validity of the '479 Patent. Citrix appealed that decision to the United States Court of Appeal for the Federal Circuit ("Federal Circuit"). That appeal is in process with an oral hearing scheduled for October 9, 2014 at the Federal Circuit, after which their decision is expected to be rendered.

An update on financial results follows.

Cash operating expenses to fund operations for the third quarter 2014 were $405,474 (2013 - $396,812). This excludes non-cash expenses for stock based compensation of $189,643 (2013 - $348,000) and depreciation of $1,631 (2013 - $1,754), as well as patent litigation and re-examination costs of $85,000 (2013 - $568,442).

Executive management and directors agreed to a reduction in the cash component of their compensation effective August 1, 2014. This reduction along with other cost saving initiatives is expected to save approximately $75,000 per quarter ($300,000 annually). The fourth quarter 2014 cash operating expenses, excluding patent litigation and re-examination costs, are now expected to be approximately $325,000.

Excluding non-cash expenses for stock based compensation and depreciation included in operating expenses, the adjusted loss for the third quarter 2014 was $438,470 (2013 - $235,187) an increase of $203,283. The majority of this increase is a result of a reduction in revenue net of associated costs from intellectual property from the third quarter 2013 to 2014.

Cash and cash equivalents were $1,607,879 as at July 31, 2014 compared to $2,101,469 as at April 30, 2014 a decrease of $493,590 for the third quarter. This decrease is primarily a result of funding the adjusted loss of $438,470 and a decrease in accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $82,051 offset by a decrease in prepaid expenses of $23,354.

On September 3, 2014 stock options were granted to certain members of the Company's executive management and directors. There were 90,000 stock options granted expiring on September 3, 2017 with an exercise price of $0.22 and vesting on March 3, 2015.
