01 Communique Reports 1st Quarter 2007 Results, Strengthens its Balance Sheet and Provides a Corporate Update



    TORONTO, March 16 /CNW/ - 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (TSX:ONE) today
announced results for its first quarter fiscal 2007, which ended January 31st,
2007. Revenue for the quarter was $83,804 with an operating loss of $419,038
compared to revenue of $156,356 with an operating loss of $345,223 for the
first quarter fiscal 2006. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, on
March 16th, receipt for a final prospectus of a previously announced
$4,525,000 public offering was received with closing expected to occur on or
about March 21, 2007.
    "Our focus is to build a highly profitable business based on the value
from our patents and the underlying technology," said Andrew Cheung, President
and CEO. "We are confident that our plan will be successful and with the
aforementioned public offering our Balance Sheet will be sufficiently
strengthened to implement our plan properly. An update is provided below."

    Citrix Litigation - Markman Order Issued - refer to our press release
    dated March 16, 2007.
    We respect the intellectual property rights of others and we expect
others to respect our intellectual property rights. To capitalize on the value
from our intellectual property we commenced a patent infringement lawsuit
against Citrix Systems Inc. (NSDQ:CTXS) in February 2006. The case is moving
forward and we are confident in the merits of our case. The court issued a
patent claim construction ruling adopting our claim construction for 19 of the
20 disputed claims terms. The claim construction hearing, also known as the
Markman hearing, was held on November 2, 2006.
    "We are pleased with the Markman ruling," said Andrew Cheung, President
and CEO for 01 Communique. "The Judge's ruling reaffirms our confidence in the
merits of our case as we prepare in earnest for a jury trial."

    Patent Application
    In addition, we have a patent application for a U.S. patent that was
filed in October 2005 for our remote wake-up a PC technology, which is further
evidence of our innovativeness.

    Technology - Licensing our products
    We have developed a series of products based on the technology underlying
our patents. These award-winning products are a showcase for our patent
protected technology. Under an exclusive arrangement for Japan, Hitachi
Business Solution is marketing an extremely secure enterprise-level remote
access solution built with our technology, called DoMobile-CSE. It is being
distributed in the Japanese market by their parent company's, Hitachi Ltd,
sales force.
    "We value the partnership we have forged with Hitachi," said Andrew
Cheung. "The product we co-developed is now commercially available in Japan.
We are providing support as requested and now await the results from Hitachi's
sales activities."

    Financial Highlights - Strengthening our Balance Sheet.
    The net proceeds from our previously announced public offering are
approximately $4,163,000 which should significantly strengthen our balance
sheet. The use of proceeds will be to retire the $500,000 debenture and for
general working capital. Receipt for the final prospectus has been received
and closing is expected on or about March 21st.
    Operating expenses for the first quarter were $477,682 and are comparable
to expenses of $527,088 for the fourth quarter 2006 and the $490,297 for the
first quarter 2006. Our expenses will be adjusted as required to support the
enforcement of our intellectual property rights and our partnership with
Hitachi Business Solution.
