I am a retired US Government analyst, currently residing in Germany. I am also a shareholder in the company called Integral Technologies (OTCBB: ITKG), and have a desire to enlighten and share its great and still emerging story. I am well read, focused and appreciate challenging interactions which spark creativity and develop enlightenment. That is why I created the ElectriPlast Blog, and the reason I am here.

ElectriPlast: A Surprizing New Approach...

Integral Technologies, Inc. To Open Korean Office for Sales of ElectriPlast™

Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: ITKG) (“Integral” or “Company”) an emerging leader in hybrid conductive plastics, announced today it plans to open its first Asia office in Seoul, South Korea in early 2012. The Korea office is necessary to support the growing demand for ElectriPlast™, the Company’s patented and innovative, hybrid electrically conductive light-weight resin-based material.

The Company’s decision to create a presence in Korea follows months of discussion with a potential partner to manufacture and distribute ElectriPlast™ in Korea. In addition to these efforts, ElectriPlast Corporation (http://www.electriplast.com/), the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, has assisted several Korean multinational companies to successfully complete their initial testing and molding of ElectriPlast™ prototype products for the automotive industry. These prototype products are intended for both the Korean domestic and international markets.

Integral has identified a location for its office in downtown Seoul. Leading the operations will be Mr. Gene Song, a Korean businessman and executive who was a former director of the US satellite operator ORBCOMM LLC, and at one time its largest single shareholder. Mr. Song’s career has spanned several industries. Prior to becoming an investor and operator in the satellite telecom industry in the US and Asia, he spent over 15 years as an executive in the financial industry running a technology fund, managing a fund for Invesco in Hong Kong, and working with Hyundai Securities.

The commitment by Integral to showcase its technology in Korea should be the catalyst for future growth in Asia. The Company looks forward to continuing the product development cycle with various Korean customers and introducing its technology to other Asian manufacturers and their engineers through ElectriPlast Corporation and our future Korea office. “We believe ElectriPlast’s™ superior electrical shielding and design flexibility compared to metal and other conductive plastics will be of great value to them,” said William Robinson, Integral’s Chairman and CEO. The ability to mold ElectriPlast™ at low cost into virtually any shape or dimension associated with a wide range of plastics, rubbers and other polymers translates into design flexibility, and enables faster development cycles that add to savings for manufacturers.

Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: ITKG) (“Integral”), (http://www.electriplast.com/) engages in the discovery, development, and commercialization of electrically conductive hybrid plastics used primarily as raw materials in the production of industrial, commercial and consumer products and services worldwide. Its core material, ElectriPlast™, is a non-corrosive, electrically conductive resin-based material whose properties allow it to be molded into any of the infinite shapes and sizes associated with plastics, rubbers and other polymers while reducing component weight by 40 to 60%. Integral is a leader in conductive hybrid plastics with a broad Intellectual Property portfolio referencing its ElectriPlast™ technology. Applications for ElectriPlast include: Shielding Wire, Power Electronics, Connectors, and Cables; Shielding, Conduction, Batteries, Semiconductors, Heated Elements, Sensors, Antennas, Medical Devices, Consumer Electronics and Acoustics, Fuses, Capacitors, Resistors, RFID, Busbars and Terminals.

Comment to Integral...

Signal flares, sign-posts, and maybe an occasional head's up might be in order.

While I personally realize business has an inherent need for secrets, and to keep aspects of their dealings hidden--I also realize that Integral is a publically traded company, which means:

Shared Responsibilities,
Shared Goals,
Shared Objectives.

The ElectriPlast Corporation must begin to understand that re-building shareholder trust needs to start with transparency in the form of defining and describing both the short-term and the longer-term game plan(s) in play.

I am not talking specifics, but am focusing on the ultimate goals (for there are more than one) and achievable milestones that make meeting them possible.

Now this might be a commonsense thing, and expected -- but it is not something being practiced at present.

Here, I'll break it down so that it is clear and simple.

Do you want to re-capture the “Heart and Minds” of your “Shareholders. More than just their money, their “TRUST”. Then include them in the bigger-picture-planning, objectives.

This latest announcement should have had shareholders rejoicing. Actions taking place behind the scenes are really coming together. Instead, I for one, see it as surprising in that I didn't even realize that this was an objective -- and I tend to pride myself on being aware of many things ElectriPlast related.

So instead of cheers, as reflected in the latest PPS, you get stunned silence, and wonderment as to: Where are they going with this?

While I sense the pluses surrounding this approach, I find myself feeling for my fellow stakeholders in that Team Integral has--during an otherwise positive moment--made a serious mis-step by not giving its base of supporters the proper cues to allow them to share in the recent good fortunes, and the possibilities associated...

If we are good enough to—with full disclosure—deal with the risks, then shouldn’t the same be true for the rewards?

"Team Integral" -- Just my sincere opinion, but simply said: You MUST do Better...
