ElectriPlast: 3rd Quarter Conference Call...

An Integral Town Hall

Let's talk...

past Successes, current Plans, Tactics, and

future Goals & Agendas...

No words of wisdom at this point, but still many questions...

In the shadow of BATTCON 2015...I will not squander this moment to post a diatribe leading a cheer for the ElectriPlast team's success. I --like many of you-- simply want answers to some serious questions about moves made, both in the past, and more recently. As investors, we each know that Integral (ITKG) has a hot ElectriPlast commodity on their hands. No matter how you slice it, the future looks bright for both ElectriPlast, and the entire field of conductive plastics as noted in a recent article by Digital Journal m.digitaljournal.com/pr/2503717. In this article, the analysts gave an assessment on the massive potential and prospect ahead. That said, we also know that Integral is using a number of key fortune 500 companies and their interest in ElectriPlast to launch the ElectriPlast potential, along with the ITKG stock to levels never before seen – don’t say it yet, but… Yes Virginia, there is a rear-view mirror featuring ITKG’s vacant spot on the Penny Stock OTCBB. With certainty, there are no doubts this will occur. Timing on the when is one of my key questions. Timing as in: BASF featured ElectriPlast's conductive materials at a recent trade show -- where are they in the timeline of making a firm commitment beyond a letter of intent (LOI) to ElectriPlast? Also, timing as in what's the status of the announcement in March 2015 about Integral Partner, Chang Rim Eng, and their first significant ElectriPlast order -- has this already happened? There's also timing, in the form of actions and impacts involving an even more recent announcement, where Mr. James Wise was inducted to the company's board -- could it be as Doug Bathauer stated in the introduction press release:

"There are large unaddressed needs in other vertical markets, specifically, Aerospace, Consumer, Power Storage, and related opportunities in the Department of Defense and the intelligence markets..."

Or...maybe there is a larger 'rest-of-the-story' here? A larger story involving the behind the scenes actions and activities that, once they come into focus, will have a real impact on the company's future growth and outreach. Aren't you interested in hearing that story? With the prospect of a Conference Call, light will shine on some of these questions, and others not printed here.

Conference calls are a chance for disclosure and transparency. That said, this is your time to pick-up a phone and talk, listen and consider. There is success written on this investment – reach out, ask your questions and be patience enough to wait for it all to unfold.

What we heard yesterday was ground breaking. After hearing the CC I am not surprised that East Penn filed the patent as soon as they did - specifically naming Electriplast in the patent.
Of course, you don't become the size of East Penn by just sitting around. I don't think the market has fully digested the news, I know I haven't.

Ha ha. Groundbreaking? Like using Electriplast in mobile phones? Or in wire (think of the potential!)? Or in antennas? Or in connectors? Or as shielding?

What would be "groundbreaking" is if someone would tell us why Electriplast has failed so miserably in so many applications and why we should believe it will succeed now. Instead, we get yet another hyped-up application that no one understands (what, really, is a bi-polar batttery and does the market care?) that is going to take over the universe.

Transcript from the Recent Conference Call...

The company is getting further from commercialization, not closer. Now they are "partnering" (whatever that means) with a company on an early-stage technology. The emphasis on the bipolar battery is meant to get shareholders breathing heavily about a technology that they neither understand or that has a defined commercialization date.

If Electriplast had any commercial potential it would have been adopted long ago. But it has not - which is an indication of a serious problem with the product. That is just common sense.

You are so right... I will place a market sell order for my 125K shares right away... Thank You so much for the warning and the real truth.

Smart move to sell now while there is some value. Most investors are unable to learn from their mistakes and ride the stock into the ground. Good for you.

Most new technology ventures fail and the earmarks of failure are here:

- Commercialization delays. Over 10 years with no viable applications is a telling sign.
- No prototypes.
- Lots of secrecy. Under the guise of protecting the technology and clients the flaws in the product and technology are hidden from view. Why is this material so hard to sell?
- "Hunting" for new applications and changing strategy. Licensing? Manufacturing? Antennas? Wire? Shielding? And now batteries? Always on a fishing expedition.

Combine all of this with the constant implication that "success is just around the corner" and "we just have to find the key/right app/right partner and this will bust wide open". There is no reason to believe that every application won't take as long as the first (which, of course, hasn't occurred yet).

This stuff works great. Why it isn't being adopted in short order is most likely that it is new and they have to prove they can deliver the product in-mass, on time, and with good QC. I think that is where they are at, and will soon display such. They only have a small, but smart, team to concentrate their efforts on engineering, the other half is securing the production end. I suspect they will come together within the next couple of months. The light weighting, corrosion resistance, and ease of molding is what's going to sell this product. I am not giving up the ship at this point, and am actually accumulating much to the dismay of the naysayers. And, by the way, there are MANY prototypes.

"This stuff works great". "There are MANY prototypes." Interesting assertions, unfortunately, there is little proof. In fact, if these assertions were true, why hasn't ITKG had a booth at the NPE and other shows with a table full of these working prototypes over the years? Why is this so difficult?

Maybe that is because this stuff doesn't work so great. At least not without a lot of custom engineering and production hand-holding.
Maybe that is because this stuff isn't so easy to mold. Or needs to be molded under special (and slow) conditions.
Maybe that is because (as you posited) no one has the capability to make this stuff "in-mass, on-time and with good QC" - at a realistic price.

Bottomline: no sales, no explanations. Just keep waiting "a couple of months".

Perhaps Integral had no booth at the NPE because their conductive plastics were on display and being represented and championed by the largest plastics manufacturer in the world, BASF.. Perhaps, just guessing through DD, that this worldwide commercialization that Mr. Bathauer has been working on is with BASF. An alliance, if indeed happening, with BASF, would be huge and represent worldwide commercialization as BASF has sales, marketing, manufacturing, engineers and R&D people throughout every region of the world. Mr. Bathauer has been targeting the automotive industry through light weighting. After some long research and many phone calls and emails I have discovered that BASF is the largest supplier of plastics to the US auto industry as well as the largest supplier of plastics to Mercedes, BMW, KIA, Honda, and several others.. Kind of makes you go HHHhhhhmmmmm..

Doesn't make me go "HHhhmm". It makes me go "show me".

Recall we have been down this happy trail before with Lear and Delphi. They seem to know a thing or two about supplying the auto industry. But nothing came of those "alliances". And no explanation has been forthcoming from management.

All the talk of alliances with the big boys may be tantalizing to the naïve, but with this company's track record some of us need more tangible evidence of revenue.

I agree that we all need the P.O., product manufacturing, shipping and the revenue to begin. I don't think we have been down any trails with Lear or Delphi quite like what is happening with BASF.. Lear was not an alliance but a customer. We ended up poaching Lears' 2 biggest conductive plastic engineers in Mo and Bob. I am certain our taking their 2 engineers ruined a working relationship with Lear.. Delphi may or may not be developing uses for EP. We just do not know. With the DD on BASF we do know that they are indeed marketing and advertising EP as Their own conductive plastic. That to me is BIG... And yes again, we do need real sales and revenue.

Where can I find BASF's marketing and advertising their own conductive plastic? I can't find any references on their extensive product websites. Or have they done other advertising and marketing campaigns?

As you know, their (BASF) conductive plastic was on display at this years' NPE and I am certain that you have seen the printed brochure they were handing out at the show. You may also contact anyone or all of the sales people listed on that brochure. I did..

What did the sales people tell you? Did you ask if the Electriplast sales are through the roof? For the record, I'm not being sarcastic. Given the potential for misinterpretation of intentions here I will be clear that I am a long-term shareholder that has been here for 12 years and will be for years to come.
