It looks like it will take a few months to see what kind of fruit this might bear, but it is highly encouraging nonetheless. Thanks, PK!

I'm not a technical business genius here, so feel free to treat me like a 5-year-old. Can someone explain the significance of this new "License Agreement" from the last press release? Does this just mean that this non-disclosed company will look at electriplast, or does it mean that they are going to purchase some?

It's great that this company is going to showcase ITKG's IP. However, in my experience nobody gives free press to a company for nothing. Especially a company in the line of business such as MDB Capital. Trust me folks, just like everyone else out their trying to make a buck, there is a high probability of a hidden agenda. I'm not saying this couldn't become a mutually beneficial relationship - just beware the red flag on this one. I hope management does their due dillegence on this company....

I suspect the listed companies have either contracted with MDB or MDB is courting them for a contract.

MDB specializes in raising cash, through a variety of methods, for small companies. ITKG is flat broke and desperate for cash - so there could be a relationship in the offing. In return for raising some cash, MDB gets a piece of ITKG.

Of course, very little was disclosed, but the license allows some un-named entity to practice the claims of the licensed patent. A license is NOT a purchase contract - so it is possible that the licensee may purchase conductive plastic from another source (like Parker Hannifin) and be assured that Integral will not sue them for patent infringement.

But to answer your question: no, a license does not imply that sales are imminent (as we have learned several times before).

I understand it will be aitomotive news near the end of the month. I think we will see a rise over the next couple of weeks leading to news.

You understand??? Are you claiming you have a reliable source that the rest of us don`t? And the PPS rise you are predicting over the next few weeks...ahead of the predicted news...is that based on some sort of insider information leak? Or will it be from readers of your informative post and acting on it?

Anonymous predictions from an anonymous poster. Now tell us about how much money you`ve made by buying this stock on the dips and selling it on the high`s.

Anyone foolish enough to believe your gibberish deserves to be fleeced.

Anyone talk to either of the Doug's lately? I'm curious if they have anything new to say. What types of questions have you asked? I will call Doug at ITKG soon, and in the interest of maximizing my conversation with him would rather not ask him repeated questions that others have.

Here's some questions for Doug:

Your recent 10-Q shows the company is essentially broke. How do you intend to quickly raise more cash to keep going? Are you considering bankruptcy?

You have asserted that Electriplast is superior to "comparable" products. What are those products and could you publish data to prove that assertion?

The single published data sheet was a good start but, frankly, the data do not compare well with other conductive plastics (like Parker Hannifin's Chomerics product line). When can we expect additional data sheets showing better results?

Do you offer any commercial products today with spec sheets and pricing? What are they? If I desired to purchase 10,000 lbs of Electriplast today, could I do so?

We'd love to hear the answers.

Have you posed those questions to Doug yet? If so, what was his response? And if not, please share what his response is when you do. At least us shareholders (on the outside looking in) can communicate. Maybe one day soon management can follow our lead....

    Doug will be away from 3/23 until 3/30.  Also, he will probably not return phone calls and only will be responding to very few e-mail messages.

I've been invested in Integral Technologies for about six years and it's been the same boring lack of information the entire time. If I had things to do over again I wouldn't have bought the stock to begin with. This company doesn't respect its shareholders at all, and considering they are broke on their balance sheets it is hard to imagine they would treat us this way. A good company does not leave their investors in the dark. I am fed up with ITKG and believe we have all been had. Of course I'm not selling now after being in it so long, but it may turn out to be a loss in the long run. A company could easily buy them out if and when they prove to be superior in the world of conductive plastics. The CEO hardly has any ownership in the company, thus a leveraged buyout company could easily do a hostile takeover. And what happened to Tom Aisenrey? He never does any interviews or is mentioned in any articles or press releases anymore. The information that does make it to the press is always vague and never discusses stock potential. The executives never send letters to the shareholders to assure us of our investment. It must me considered that the company has no concern over the price of the stock and is merely looking for a jackpot buyout to land themselves in riches while we the shareholders end up owning a stock that never realizes any significant growth. Just my 2 cents anyway. Surely there are others with similar concerns as I have.
