01 Communique Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2016 Results and Provides an Update of its Operations

TORONTO, March 8, 2016 /CNW/ - 01 Communique Laboratory Inc. (ONE:TSX-V) today announced results for its first quarter fiscal 2016, which ended January 31, 2016. The loss and comprehensive loss was $455,506 (2015 - $391,799). The adjusted loss, which excludes non-cash expenses for stock-based compensation and depreciation, was $311,061 (2015 - $344,917). The Company completed the period with $378,785 of cash and cash equivalents.   

"After considering our options with respect to the results of our lawsuit against Citrix Systems Inc. ("Citrix") we plan to continue with the appeal process," said Andrew Cheung, President and CEO for 01 Communique. "Yesterday, we filed post-trial motions with the District Court that presided over the trial. These included motions for renewed judgment as a matter of law and for a new trial. Citrix's opposition brief to these motions is due April 11, 2016 and our reply is due April 28, 2016. After all briefs are filed a decision by the District Court is expected and then an appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit can be taken, if needed."

An Update on the Company's Operations follows:
In addition to moving forward with the appeal process in its patent lawsuit against Citrix the Company plans to continue and work with Hitachi as well as approach other companies with a goal for them to license the Company's products and technology. Substantially all development work has been completed on the products that the Company is looking to license and with respect to the appeal process the Company relies on its lawyers and hence minimal internal resources are expected. Accordingly, the Company has reduced operating expenses significantly as it works through the appeal process. To assist in achieving this expense reduction the Company's executive management and board of directors are not drawing a salary.

Operating expenses for first quarter 2016 were $452,214 (2015 - $403,480). Excluding non cash expenses for stock based compensation and depreciation the cash operating expenses for first quarter 2016 were $307,769 (2015 - $349,940) a reduction of $42,171. After taking into account the recent expense reductions the cash operating expenses for the second quarter 2016 are expected to be approximately $75,000.

The Company has received a patent in Japan, Patent Nos. 5,832,027 for its patent application entitled (as translated) "Private communication portal provision system for two-way pager network, has location facility computer for facilitating communication between two other computers".

Background on the Company's patent lawsuit against Citrix:
In February 2006, the Company commenced a lawsuit in the United States District Court, Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, against Citrix alleging infringement by their GoToMyPC product line of the '479 Patent. On January 11, 2016 a jury trial commenced in the lawsuit with the jury reaching and returning a unanimous verdict on January 19, 2016. The Court entered Judgment as follows:

  1. Defendants Citrix have not infringed claims 24 or 45 of 01 Communique's patent (United States Patent No. 6,928,479);

  2. Claims 24 and 45 of United States Patent No. 6,928,479 are not invalid;

  3. Plaintiff 01 Communique takes no damages from Citrix;

  4. Except as set forth above or adjudicated through Summary Judgment, all other claims and counterclaims in this matter are dismissed;

  5. Each party retains its right to, and does not waive its right to, file timely motions for renewed judgment as a matter of law, for new trial, for the award of attorneys' fees, for the award of costs, and to prosecute an appeal from any aspect of the case to the extent allowed by statute, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and/or this Court.
