"I have a passion for firms that are transforming technology into growth products and services," said Snell. "My career has been about working with management teams to improve business results and build strategic capital structures resulting in transformational growth in shareholder value. I'm impressed with the company's patented line of conductive plastics, ElectriPlast, and the numerous applications the technology has in several high growth industries." said Mr. Snell. "I am excited to join Integral's team and I look forward to working closely with ITKG investors and shareholders while emphasizing discipline around costs, establishing and achieving corporate milestones which will drive shareholder value."

I couldn't attend the conference call, but appreciate them doing these quarterly. We'll see if that happens. Did anyone participate that could offer thoughts? I read some of it, but it's nice to have first hand accounts... PK, did you participate?

The spin is in. My first question was why would an IBM executive leave a stable multi-national company like IBM for a little po-dunk company like Integral?

Then I found out that he left IBM 22 years ago!! He has spent the last 22 years working for 8 different lesser known companies for 2-3 years at a time. I have no doubt that he has all the credentials necessary to handle the finances for the likes of Integral. And while what the spin doctors are passing around is essentially true, these same people will criticize anyone who brings up anything in Integral`s history more that a few months old. Old news. Times have changed. Ha, ha, 22 YEARS ago!! Ha! Integral didn`t even exist back then.

Just having a little fun keeping things in perspective.

Forget the transcript. Poor automated translation. Make the call, listen to the original and listen intently. It's only available for two more days.
They are communicating VERY clearly, actually. All you have to do is listen. But you MUST listen.
Afterwards, formulate your own impressions. Well worth your time no matter where you land afterward.
