ElectriPlast: 2006 - What an Incredible Year!



By Vince S.
ElectriPlast Blog Editor

A Great Year for Integral Technologies

It’s that time of year, the end of the twelfth month on the Gregorian calendar, when sages, pundits, and media philosophers look over their shoulder at the events that shaped the year. The newsprint, voice and visual media, and, of course, the Blogosphere, will be jacked up with reviews, diagnoses, evaluations, and analyses--good, bad and ugly--on the sometimes exhilarating, often tragic, infrequently peaceful, but ever hopeful progression of the year 2006. Even with the previous year as a template, the sages will still offer their spin on the coming year, 2007!

Hey, folks! The editorial staff of the ElectriPlast Blog would be remiss if we didn’t join in the fun! After all, our job--bringing you news of the evolution of Integral technologies--was made infinitely easier during 2006. So, with the perspective of nearly a full year in our rear view mirror, join us as we take a look at our incredible year of accomplishment and growth. Then we’ll throw in a prediction or three for the infant 2007 as he journeys through the next turbulent 365 days.

2006: The Go-to-Market Year

As usual, the worldwide celebrations to welcome the new year was greeted by a sea of hope-filled faces, horns, prayers for peace, champagne toasts, and a shower of ticker tape as the ball dropped and 2005 became a historical statistic. For a small group of investors, however, history was about to be redefined in a way in which they had only dreamed of: It would be the coming of age of their investment in Integral Technologies. On 3 January 2006, Integral’s CEO Bill Robinson delivered a historic message that capped years of development, testing and marketing strategies for ElectriPlast. Moreover, Mr. Robinson revealed that the company had progressed beyond the development stage; it was time to take our disruptive technology to market. With the CEO’s letter--more a blueprint for the future--Integral moved to the production and marketing phase, portending a bright future for the company and its shareholders.

Another sign of the tremendous progress made by Integral would come in a series of progressively more optimistic press releases as well as the steady upward pressure on the price per share, a growing sign of investor confidence. From a low of $0.36 to a high of over $4.00, ITKG would generate indescribable excitement and optimism.

So, What Made this such a Great Year?

Integral started the first quarter of 2006 with a bang and continued through the year. Like an unbroken chain, Integral press releases and newsworthy events just didn’t stop coming:

  • January -- the long awaited message from the CEO.
  • March -- Tobin Smith’s ChangeWave discovers and recommends ITKG.
  • March -- Integral licenses ElectriPlast for use in LED lighting products.
  • April -- Heatron, Inc., of Leavenworth, KS, finalizes an ElectriPlast licensing agreement.
  • May -- Shareholders overwhelmingly authorize an increase in capital shares to 150 million.
  • May -- Seven more ElectriPlast patents are allowed.
  • June -- Company officials provide status of progress during an extraordinary shareholders meeting held in Jasper, IN.
  • June -- Dow Chemical Co. underwrote the ElectriPlast presentation made by Tom Aisenbrey at the National Plastics Exposition on June 19.
  • September -- Jasper Rubber Co. (JARCO) signs an ElectriPlast licensing agreement.
  • September -- Another ElectriPlast patent (the 19th) is allowed.
  • November -- Integral chosen as an Innovation Award Recipient for the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show.
  • November -- JARCO named as the official ElectriPlast manufacturer, a major link in the supply chain.
  • December -- ADAC automotive licensed to use ElectriPlast to manufacture auto parts.

    Bloggers are referred to previous EB articles and the Integral Technologies site www.itkg.net for additional information on the impact of the above announcements.

2007: The Revenue Generating Year

Clearly, there can be no doubt that Integral Technologies is on the verge of booking revenues and becoming a profitable company. The management team is in place and motivated, but more corporate structure (a board of directors and governance committees) is required to move to one of the big boards. So here are my predictions, folks. The Consumer Electronics Show will showcase the wonders of ElectriPlast, which will attract more and larger companies to our product. 2007 will see a steady increase in the share price of our stock and the company will be listed on the NASDAQ. Tom Aisenbrey will continue to discover more uses for our disruptive intellectual property; more patents will be allowed. Finally, the share price at the end of 2006 will become a ten-bagger by the end of 2007.

I’ll be here to receive laurel wreaths when these goals are achieved or to be a target, if not. Whatever happens, it has been a great year for Integral Technologies, so we'll see if 2007 is ushered in on the same high note.

It has been an incredible year. Next year will be better.

A happy, healthy and prosperous new year to all!

I thought there was going be an exhibit at the CES show next week featuring Electriplast. Just found out that Integral Technologies will not be having an exhibit. Just curious as to why. Will Electriplast be shown? I would guess yes but not quite sure now.

Fair comment Fellow Shareholder.

My information is slightly different.

Rather than get into a debate on the issue, let's wait for the CES show to open next week before we begin drawing lines in the sand...

Fellow Shareholder,

Thanks for digging a little deeper and uncovering the insight.

There are some on various message boards who will readily make negative claims in an effort to sway, or mislead others.

For them, it is not about uncovering the truth, the facts, the reality (however you choose to phrase it), but more it is about power that they sense they gain in raising uncertainty and doubt. For them, it could be something as simple as using psychological scare tactics to play shareholders, and manipulate the stock in this faulty OTC market. Personally, I think it may have more to do with an individual psychosis where this/these entity(ies) feel that (they) need to be taken seriously, and seen by others as a resource of information, and an authority for fact.

That said, you realize there are negative influences out in the world. Just like you would do for your own -- I will continue to urge you, and others reading, to seek out the underlying truth behind what is propped up as FACT, or impending doom on the message boards.

Truth comes in differing shades, and the best falsehoods come from those who most often cry foul, or those who play the fear card as they attempt to bolster their issue of the moment...

Rather than getting sucked into the groundswell of that attitude, use the best and most responsible information resource available -- yourself.

Dig consistently; read between the lines often, and if that doesn't work, pick up a phone and make your concerns known to IR. Though IR may not always be able to resolve your particular issues, they should (when asked) point you toward a resource that you can use to further your due diligence rights as a fellow shareholder...

Cheers and best from the Heart of Bavaria,

I thought you might be interested to know that one of the world's largest and most advanced magnetic tape manufacturer's is about to close its doors in a few days after going bankrupt, bought for nothing, and still unable to recover. The equipment will be sold for nothing and the land sold. They can bond and print almost anything to any type of thin film. You can have the company free of charge if you keep the doors open. They are quantegy in opelika albama. I don't work there, an employee was telling me about them...and looking for a job after 23 years

Unfortunately, it is not a unique occurrence. This was an Analog company working in a Digital world.

When you have MP3 players no bigger than a writing pen, or photo/video cameras that are becoming smaller than a pack of cigarettes, and can fit in the palm of your hand while storing up to 8GB of memory...

Well, the toys of yesteryear are either going to have to adapt, merge, or fade.

My dad once owned a Reel-to-Reel. He lovingly loaded it with the music he wanted to listen to and we'd listen to the tunes wail throughout those special nights.

A number of years ago, his Recorder broke. I was going to get him a new one, but the prices were outrageous.

I then thought to do a "McGuiver" on the broken Reel-to-Reel Recorder, it and fix it myself.

The parts for his Recorder were more outrageous than the notion of purchasing a new one--plus, if the truth were to be known, I really didn't have a clue as to how to fix it--rather, I thought it like an IKEA product, sooner or later the pieces would come together into something looking like the picture.

Instead, I thought to look in other directions, what with the onslaught of VHS recorders, CD's and then DVD's, along with the ease of loading -- I introduced my Father to WinMX (a now defunct peer-to-peer internet site), and he found that he could upload and record on CD and MP3, the old music he loved--and more--the old tunes of his childhood that he could never before find. And all this for free.

An so, his tapes, boxed up, began gathering dust in a dark corner of the basement, right next to his broken Reel-to-Reel recorder.

I feel for your friend, and I understand your comment. Look around, it is happening all over. Not just companies falling out of time, but people, jobs, America.

I heard on the radio a story about how the major department stores are bemoaning the fact that yet another year has passed and few have met the forecasted holiday sales volumes.

I ask how can they be surprised?

America is no longer the producer it once was. Most of the presents purchased were made elsewhere--China more likely than not.

Christmas lights, decorations, and even fake trees are now being made in China. And that doesn't even touch the material (clothing/electronics) manufacturing aspect

Meanwhile--a growing number of Americans are working two jobs to support their family and their credit card debt -- and yes, somewhere in the is a mortgage or rent and other creature comforts like cable.

Thank goodness for places of part time employment like Home Depot.

And a mega-boo-hiss to the retailers who missed their forecasted sales year...

The heartless person that I am, despite the crocodile-tears they cry, I tend to think: Maybe these retailers should have considered "buying" American products in the first place, as opposed to gouging America where it hurts the most...

Wow, that was quite a tangent -- Sorry I got off track slightly.

Cheers and thanks for the post, and the support to the EB.
