ITEM 1. BUSINESS.

 

BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

 

Integral Technologies, Inc. ("Integral," the "Company" or "we") is, incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on February 12, 1996.  To date, we have expended resources on the research and development of several different types of technologies.

 

Integral focuses the majority of its resources on researching, developing and commercializing its ElectriPlast® technologies. The technology possesses a multitude of applications in a myriad of industries. These include the auto industry, the aerospace, consumer electronics, and commercial aviation industries, among others. One key factor that could drive demand for ElectriPlast is the need for light-weighting. Automotive and aerospace are leading the way to achieve reduced emissions and increased fuel economy. Light-weighting involves the substitution of lighter materials, often times using carbon-fiber based, for heavier (aluminum and other metals) materials.

 

On May 21, 2010, the Obama administration asked the EPA and NHTSA to jointly develop a national program that would “produce a new generation of clean vehicles,” to lower oil usage. The government mandated that auto manufacturers comply with CAFÉ (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) standards by the year 2025. To become more energy efficient, auto manufacturers are required to have their fleets achieving 54.5 MPG (miles per gallon) by then. According to a 2009 issue of Car and Driver Magazine, in 2009, car fleets averaged 32.5 CAFE MPG and trucks averaged 24.5 MPG. The Trump administration has indicated it will lessen the CAFE requirements, however it is unclear what changes will be made and its effect on the requirements set by the previous administration, but globally, the trend remains an increase in CAFE standards. More importantly, countries have begun to explore a zero emissions policy which would ban internal combustion engines in favor of zero emission power systems, such as battery electric vehicles.

 

We apply a significant portion of our resources to the protection of our intellectual property through patent filings. One source of income is derived from up-front licensing fees as is the case with our manufacturing license agreement for the use of our patents and proprietary “know-how” for the manufacture of the ElectriPlast® pellets by PolyOne Corporation (“PolyOne”), a global polymer company and Hanwha Advanced Materials Co., Ltd. (“Hanwha”) of Korea. In addition, Integral allocates resources to expand and protect the extensive intellectual property holdings surrounding its ElectriPlast® technology. Integral’s business strategy focuses on the leveraging of its intellectual property rights and our strength in product design and material innovation. Integral is focusing its business development and marketing efforts on securing licensing and/or joint development agreements in areas for which it currently hold patents covering specific materials, components, parts, applications or end-products incorporating conductive resins and ElectriPlast technology. Integral collaborates with suppliers, Tier1 vendors, OEM's and manufacturers of products who would benefit from the incorporation of any of the ElectriPlast® applications.

 

Our business model calls for the Company to generate revenue from license fees from the use of our patent portfolio and proprietary “know-how”, to generate revenue through the sale of ElectriPlast® material either through a royalty revenue stream or from direct sales of ElectriPlast®, and by providing technical services through our Detroit Tech Center to companies needing our expertise in applying ElectriPlast® in their applications. The Company’s management and engineering team has expertise and know-how in the ideas related to the use of the product.

 

Various examples of applications for ElectriPlast® where Integral holds patent protection are: batteries, antennas, electronics shielding, lighting/LED circuitry, motors, switch actuators, resistors, medical devices, thermal management, toys and cable connector bodies, among others. We have been working to introduce these new applications and the ElectriPlast® technology on a global scale.

 

In particular, our business model calls for collaborating with leading resin and fiber suppliers, manufacturers, and technology innovators to manufacture ElectriPlast®, and develop new product applications for ElectriPlast® . We anticipate that these relationships will lead to greater market penetration and adoption for our products. In view of these goals, we have recently formed relationships with BASF, Chang Rim Eng. Inc., Delphi Automotive PLC, Advanced Battery Concepts, The Ultimate Battery Co., LeddarTech, TheMix Plastics, Inc., PolyOne and Hanwha, and believe that we now have several key global relationships to help us expand our operations both domestically and internationally.

Since the previous 10-K filing, several actions were taken by the Company to better position the commercialization of ElectriPlast. The most notable event was the license agreement with PolyOne in February 20, 2018. The agreement is a 10-year, global exclusive license to manufacture, sell and distribute conductive pellets using the Company’s know-how and certain patents for automotive related EMI/RFI shielding applications. The agreement requires PolyOne to pay the Company an upfront fee and royalties from future sales during the term of the agreement. The agreement excludes the Company’s bipolar battery technology and the territory provided to Hanwha in an earlier agreement. The Company continues to emphasize the expansion of ElectriPlast's technical and engineering capabilities with other prospective customers and partners. The bipolar battery technology remains an important opportunity for the Company and the global vehicle electrification trend creates new opportunities that existing battery technologies are unable to meet. In 2015, the Company filed non-provisional patents associated with its bipolar battery technology and bipolar plate products. The Company believes the bipolar battery plate and associated power storage technology provides long-sought breakout weight savings and performance benefits for the lead-acid battery market. The Company intends to develop the power storage technology as an Integral Technologies business unit and will seek partners to fully develop batteries for consumer and industrial consumption. The world-wide market demand for lead-acid batteries was estimated to be $44.7B in 2014, and expected to grow to $58.6B by 2020 (a 5% CAGR). Contributing to this growth will be new battery requirements established by the United States Advanced Battery Consortium (“USABC”) for 12V and 48V batteries in support of new Start – Stop systems in micro hybrid vehicles and 48V systems in hybrid vehicles coming to market over the next decade. From 2025, vehicle electrification (Hybrid & Battery EV) is expected to grow from about 10% of total vehicles sold to completely replace internal combustion engine (ICE) technology by 2050. These trends are already having a significant impact in the automotive industry and the need for new battery technologies to support growing power demands.

 

The Company continues to advance its bipolar plate technology for the battery industry. A core component of the bipolar plate is the ElectriPlast pellet that enables the conductivity and moldability of the proprietary bipolar plate using a nonmetal plate. The Company is presently in discussions with several prospective investment partners in the US, UK and Asia regarding the sale of the battery plate technology and global manufacturing rights. Under the present discussions, the Company retains all rights to the ElectriPlast pellet and the prospective buyer of the bipolar technology is required to purchase pellets exclusively from the Company. The first prototype battery utilizing the ElectriPlast bipolar technology was produced in 2015. The battery was produced with the assistance of Advanced Battery Concepts (“ABC”). Based on the initial prototype and a series of discussion during the quarter, the Company announced on April 26, 2016 a Joint Technology Assessment Program with Advanced Battery Concepts, an industry leader in large format bi-polar battery design and manufacture. The Company continues its technical partnership with ABC and it remains a potential partner in commercializing the bipolar technology.

 

On June 26, 2017 the Company announced that it had been chosen by a global Tier 1 automotive supplier to provide its conductive plastic for an EMI shielding application in an automotive optical sensing system.  The ElectriPlast part will be going into a global automotive platform in approximately two million vehicles with production expected to start in 2018 for a major United States auto manufacturer. The program is expected to run for five years upon commencement.

 

On June 21, 2017 the Company announced that its ElectriPlast material had been chosen by a leading European electric luxury SUV maker for use in a high voltage connector.  This electric SUV made its European debut in late 2017. The order will run through 2024 and marks ElectriPlast's first European automotive commercial order, and the second ElectriPlast order for use in an electric vehicle platform during the reporting period. The application was co-developed with a North American automotive Tier 1. 

 

In Asia, the Company is supporting Hanwha’s market development efforts targeting the automotive sector. The Company also is also working with Chang Rim Eng. Inc. (“Chang Rim”) as it continues its efforts to commercialize ElectriPlast® in South Korea. The Company announced on October 8, 2014 that Chang Rim had successfully completed its prototype phase for a motor casing targeting the domestic Asia automotive market. On August 20, 2015, the Company announced with Chang Rim the largest ElectriPlast order in the Company’s history. The Company continues to make progress in shielding in the electric vehicle market and is currently working with multiple Tier 1's in implementing their EMI shielding solutions for automotive applications. Two million electric vehicles were on the road globally in 2016 and that number is estimated to grow to 70 million by 2025.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

In March 2015 the Company relocated its North American manufacturing from Jasper Rubber Products in Jasper, Indiana to the Nova Polymers facility in Evansville, Indiana to support its growing demand for ElectriPlast.  In addition to relocating the line, additional capacity was added by dedicating existing Nova fixed assets to the ElectriPlast process that increased capacity by ten times.  Nova was selected because they had the infrastructure to scale manufacturing capacity to meet the expected growth in customer volumes through 2020 and beyond. The recent licensing agreement with PolyOne accelerates and expands the Company’s ability to provide conductive plastic pellets to customers around the world. PolyOne is a fully integrated polymer manufacturing organization with major manufacturing plants located around the world. As a recognized global polymer supplier, PolyOne already meets the stringent manufacturing, quality control and financial requirements needed to be an automotive Tier 1 supplier, items which are essential since PolyOne will become the supplier for the Company’s existing projects with the automotive Tier 1’s, and all other future customers for ElectriPlast. With the Polyone licensing agreement, the Company plans to reduce its capabilities at the Nova facility.

 

The PolyOne license agreement not only enables PolyOne to manufacture conductive pellet using the Company’s proprietary know-how and patents, it also permits PolyOne to sell, market and distribute conductive pellets worldwide. The Company believes PolyOne’s much larger global sales force will be key in further accelerating the Company’s growth in the auto sector, while enabling the Company to focus on its key technical strengths, including applications development and a customer technical support.

 

Companies continue to incorporate ElectriPlast in their on-going product development evaluations. One of the Company’s customers, LeddarTech raised over $100 million during the period. A LeddarTech product includes ElectriPlast material to produce lens barrels in its latest release of its LeddarOne Sensing Module, a compact and low-cost lidar that provides valuable presence detection and distance measurement capabilities to a wide range of finished products, including systems for autonomous driving vehicles. A key reason for LeddarTech using ElectriPlast is due to the superior qualities of ElectriPlast in the key areas of weight-reduction, cost, and robustness in the demanding environments where LeddarTech products are used.

 

In December 2017, the Company met with several prospective European investor partners in Europe regarding the feasibility of establishing a bipolar battery R&D facility and manufacturing plant in the UK. Companies and organizations included a global chemical company, a luxury car manufacturer, a leading UK university specializing in advance battery development and manufacturing processes for industry, and representatives from a local government that were supportive of providing infrastructure and tax incentives for establishing a battery plant in their district. The Company continues these discussions.

 

In April 2017, ElectriPlast presented its bipolar plate technology for lead acid batteries to a leading lead acid battery manufacturer in Asia. ElectriPlast’s Vice President of Engineering presented the advanced lead acid battery technology and its numerous benefits, including performance, reduced size and weight compared to existing lead-acid batteries. The Asian battery company requested to purchase several bipolar batteries for their internal testing. During its next prototype production, the Company will produce a sufficient number of batteries to provide to the Asian battery company.

 

In January 2016, the Company and a Tier 1 partner reached a technical milestone when its wire shielding application currently under development obtained the highest shielding effectiveness to date. The Company believes the level of shielding effectiveness validates the commercial viability of the technology. The companies have completed subsequent trials and continue to work towards commercialization for an effective alternative in replacing the more-costly metal, braided shielding.

 

The Company entered into a term sheet dated April 19, 2015 with a low conductive plastics compounder (the “Compounder”) for the purpose of acquiring all the assets of the Compounder, with the Compounder remaining a separate entity. The Compounder is a niche supplier of low conductive plastics with an international customer base. The Company’s strategic interest in the Compounder is its equipment and expertise in low conductive material compounding, as well as its customer base. The term sheet contemplated that upon the closing, all sales and marketing would be performed by the Company, and the Compounder would become the sole manufacturer for the Company. In October 2015, the founder and majority shareholder of the Compounder died from an accident before the transaction could be completed. Following the founder’s death, the Company made product for the Compounder through a combination of using former employees of the Compounder as well as the Company’s own staff. The Company has since stopped making material for the Compounder and is exploring other manufacturing options regarding the manufacture of low conductive materials, including exiting this low margin, capital intensive business.

ElectriPlast®

 

We have researched and developed an innovative, electrically and thermally conductive resin-based material called “ElectriPlast®.” The ElectriPlast® polymer is a compounded formulation of resin-based materials that are conductively loaded, or doped, with a proprietary-controlled, balanced concentration of micron conductive materials, and then pelletized using our patented manufacturing process. The conductive loading or doping within this pellet is then homogenized using conventional molding techniques and conventional molding equipment. The end result is a product that can be molded into any of the infinite shapes and sizes associated with plastics, is non-corrosive, and can serve as an electrically conductive alternative material to metal.

 

ElectriPlast® is a patented non-corrosive, durable, conductive plastic pellet that replaces the metallic component currently used for shielding and conductive devices, thus creating applications never before possible and with a 40-60% weight reduction. ElectriPlast's® intellectual property rights and 55 issued patents, of which 51 of those patents not yet expired, and 10 pending applications cover both the material and its applications.

 

Various examples of applications for ElectriPlast® include antennas, EMI shielding, lighting circuitry, switch actuators, resistors, batteries, medical devices, thermal management and cable connector bodies, among many others. We have been working to introduce these new applications and the ElectriPlast® technology on a global scale.

 

The ElectriPlast® intellectual property (IP) portfolio is the centerpiece of Integral’s strategy to aggressively develop, protect, and market its innovations. Integral’s patent holdings encompass a broad range of ElectriPlast® developments which extend beyond the core technology to include key applications, and manufacturing processes

 

ElectriPlast® can be fabricated into virtually any shape or dimension using low-cost capital investment equipment, such as injection molding and extrusion versus high cost stamping methods. Its design flexibility, shorter development cycle and speed of manufacturing create a valuable market edge for customers.

 

PolyOne Corporation is Integral’s global manufacturing partner of its proprietary ElectriPlast® product line (www.polyone.com). Prior to the recent license agreement with PolyOne, Jasper Rubber Products, Inc. and Nova Polymers were its US manufacturing partners (“Jasper”) (www.jasperrubber.com), and Hanwha remains the Korean manufacture

 

PolyOne is a leading provider of specialized polymer materials, services, and solutions with operations in specialty polymer formulations, color and additive systems, polymer distribution and specialty vinyl resins. They are also a highly specialized developer and manufacturer of performance-enhancing additives, liquid coolants, and fluoropolymer and silicone colorants.

Hanwha Group is on Forbes’ list of Top Global Companies.

 

On January 27, 2015 the Company and Hanwha Advanced Materials Co., Ltd. (“Hanwha”), formerly known as Hanwha L&C, amended that certain license agreement between the parties dated June 19, 2013, (the “License Agreement”) due to the sale of certain non-automotive related assets by Hanwha, including its former name Hanwha L&C, to a third party. This amendment is effective as of July 1, 2014 and no other provisions of the License Agreement were modified.

 

Patents/Trademarks on Technologies 

 

Our intellectual property portfolio consists of over fourteen years of accumulated research and design knowledge and trade secrets.  We have sought United States (“US”) patent protection for many of our ideas related to our ElectriPlast® technologies.  Currently, we have filed 117 non-provisional US patent applications, 55 of which have been issued as patents, with 51 of those issued patents not yet expired.  No assurances can be given that all patent applications will be approved; however, to the extent that patents are not granted, we will continue to attempt to commercialize these technologies without the protection of patents.  As patents are issued, we will have the exclusive right to use and license the design(s) described in each issued patent for the life of the patent in the US.

 

Of the 117 non-provisional applications filed that have not issued as patents, 9 are currently pending, and 53 are no longer pending.  Integral continues to pursue intellectual property protection through its patent and trademark portfolio while constantly evaluating its filings to judiciously apply resources to our most critical technologies.  Integral has filed 12 Canadian patent applications, 2 of which have issued, with 10 no longer being active.  Integral has filed an International patent application, which published on September 25, 2014, claiming features of the Company’s capsule.  The Company filed national stage applications based on this PCT on September 15, 2015 in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, China, Japan, South Korea, Europe, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, India, Thailand, Philippines, Singapore and Australia. On August 10, 2015, the Company also filed new US and PCT patent applications for a Bipolar Plate and Method of Making and Using Same   with a US publication date of November 3, 2016 and a PCT publication date of November 10, 2016.

 

Integral has a registered US trademark for ELECTRIPLAST®, a registered US trademark for INTEGRAL (with design)®, and a registered US trademark application for WHERE LIGHTWEIGHTING STARTSTM.  In addition, Integral has a registered mark for ELECTRIPLAST® in China, Japan, Korea, Europe and Taiwan.  In addition, Integral has a registered mark for WHERE LIGHTWEIGHTING STARTS® in Europe, Japan and Korea.  These applications and registrations establish rights for the use of these marks in commerce.

 

Product Manufacturing and Distribution

 

Our manufacturing licensees PolyOne and Hanwha are currently operating at limited manufacturing capacity in producing the compounded product catalog and ElectriPlast pellets for domestic and international customers. As demand continues to grow these manufacturers have the resources and ability to scale to meet any new production requirements. As we grow, especially outside the automotive sector, we would consider expanding our licensing agreements with our existing partners and/or enter into additional licensing agreements with new manufacturing partners. We may also consider acquiring existing assets or an operating company to help meet new demand is specialized, niche markets. We maintain our relationship with Nova Polymers to manufacture ElectriPlast® in the event product cannot be supplied by PolyOne and Hanwha.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

Our previous work with Jasper and Nova has enabled us to advance our manufacturing and molding process of ElectriPlast® and allows us to transfer these know-how advances to PolyOne under the license agreement. Our expertise and past experiences with our conductive pellet will greatly enhance the relationship with PolyOne, who possesses industry leading manufacturing and logistics services, but is limited in the know-how, manufacture and the development of applications using conductive materials. Within the past four years, we relocated our existing manufacturing facility from the Jasper Rubber Products plant to Nova Polymers in early 2015.   In addition to relocating the line, additional capacity was added by dedicating existing Nova fixed assets to the ElectriPlast process which increased capacity by ten times.  The move to Nova made strategic sense at the time because of the added infrastructure they provided that was needed for scaling manufacturing capacity to meet the expected growth in customer volumes. During the past fiscal year, the Company was awarded several large projects that required even greater manufacturing scalability that only a company of PolyOne’s size, resources and global presence could provide.

 

In June 2013, we signed a 10-year agreement with Hanwha that grants Hanwha an exclusive right to sell, distribute and manufacture ElectriPlast® in South Korea. Additionally, Hanwha has acquired non-exclusive sales and distribution rights to ElectriPlast® in Japan, Taiwan and China. Hanwha is part of the Hanwha Group of companies that collectively form one of the largest conglomerates in South Korea, and is a global supplier in both automotive and consumer goods materials. PolyOne is aware of the existing license agreement with Hanwha and our agreement with PolyOne does not affect the Hanwha agreement.

 

As an engineered raw material, our technologies will not be sold directly to the general public, but rather to businesses and manufacturers of certain products who will incorporate our technologies as components in the design of their end-products. In addition to our current relationships, we are also exploring other opportunities for potential global partnerships in non-automotive industries, as well as other industries, including consumer electronics, cable and wire, and telecommunications.

 

Barriers to Entry into Market Segment

 

We have been working to introduce the ElectriPlast® technology as an alternative to metal for use as an electrically conductive material. Although gaining rapidly, little industry knowledge exists today regarding the science and use of conductive resins as an alternative material or how to apply the material to specific applications. As with any new technology, a prospective client must first become educated on the uses of the material, then investigate, test, trial and accept that the alternative material is an adequate, to superior cost-effective replacement option. Until there is greater knowledge and broader acceptance of ElectriPlast as a viable metal replacement technology, we will continue to experience prolonged selling cycles.

 

SUMMARY OF AGREEMENTS

 

Our business model calls for collaborating with leading technology innovators to develop new product applications for ElectriPlast® and to license our intellectual property for its manufacture and commercialization across many industries. Below is a summary of each of our commercial agreements concerning our ElectriPlast® technology (Please note that we have not yet received significant revenues from these agreements unless otherwise noted)

 

Patent License Agreement with Heatron, Inc.

 

In March 2006, we entered into a Patent License Agreement with Heatron, Inc.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

An investment in our common stock involves major risks. Before you invest in our common stock, you should be aware that there are various risks, including those described below. You should carefully consider these risk factors together with all of the other information included in this annual report on Form 10-K before you decide to invest in shares of our common stock.

 

Purchase of our stock is a highly speculative and you could lose your entire investment. We have been operating at a loss since inception, and you cannot assume that our business plans will either materialize or prove successful. In the event our plans are unsuccessful, you may lose all or substantially all of your investment. The purchase of our stock must be considered a highly speculative investment.

 

We have incurred substantial losses from inception and we have never generated revenues; failure to achieve profitability in the future would likely cause the market price for our common stock to decline significantly.  We have generated net losses from inception and we have an accumulated deficit of approximately $63 million as of June 30, 2017. We have experienced significant operating losses to date, including net losses of $5.7 million for fiscal year 2017 and $4.6 million in fiscal year 2016. As of June 30, 2017, we had approximately $16,764 in cash. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may be necessary as a result of this uncertainty. As a result of the substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern, we may experience possible adverse effects from our customers, on our creditworthiness, or on investor confidence, any of which may have a material adverse effect on our business and the trading price of our common stock.

 

If we do not generate adequate revenues in our fiscal year ending June 30, 2019 we will be required to raise substantial capital to continue our operations.  Unless we generate adequate revenues from operations (we have not earned enough revenues to support operations to date) in the near future, we will require additional financing to carry out our business plans next year, and such financing may not be available at that time. If we require additional financing, we may seek additional funds through private placements that will be exempt from registration and will not require prior shareholder approval.  If additional funds are raised by issuing common stock, or securities that are convertible into common stock (such as preferred stock, warrants, or convertible debentures), further dilution to shareholders could occur.  Additionally, investors could be granted registration rights by us that could result in market overhang and depress the market price of the common stock.  If we fail to obtain sufficient additional financing, we will not be able to implement our business plans in an effective or timely manner.

 

Additional financing is necessary for the implementation of our growth strategy. We may require additional debt and/or equity financing to pursue our growth strategy. Given our limited operating history and existing losses, there can be no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining additional financing. Lack of additional funding could force us to curtail substantially our growth plans or cease of operations. Furthermore, the issuance by us of any additional securities pursuant to any future fundraising activities undertaken by us would dilute the ownership of existing shareholders and may reduce the price of our common stock. Furthermore, debt financing, if available, will require payment of interest and may involve restrictive covenants that could impose limitations on our operating flexibility. Our failure to successfully obtain additional future funding may jeopardize our ability to continue our business and operations.

 

We may be unable to manage our growth or implement our expansion strategy. We may not be able to expand our product and service offerings, our client base and markets, or implement the other features of our business strategy at the rate or to the extent presently planned. Our projected growth will place a significant strain on our administrative, operational and financial resources. If we are unable to successfully manage our future growth, establish and continue to upgrade our operating and financial control systems, recruit and hire necessary personnel or effectively manage unexpected expansion difficulties, our financial condition and results of operations could be materially and adversely affected.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

If we are unable to compete effectively with our competitors, we will not be successful generating revenues or attaining profits. Our ability to generate revenues and achieve profitability is directly related to our ability to compete with our competitors. Most of the companies with which we compete and expect to compete have far greater capital resources and more significant research and development staffs, marketing and distribution programs and facilities, and many of them have substantially greater experience in the production and marketing of products. In each market, we face competition from companies with established technologies. Currently, we believe that we will be able to compete because of the relative performance, price and adaptability of our unique ElectriPlast® technology. Our beliefs are based only on our research and development testing efforts. If we are unable to compete effectively, we will not be successful in generating revenues or attaining profits.

 

Loss of key personnel could cause a major disruption in our day-to-day operations and we could lose our relationships with customers and third-parties with whom we do business. Our success is heavily dependent on the continued active participation of our current executive officers listed under “Management.” Loss of the services of one or more of our officers could have a material adverse effect upon our business, financial condition or results of operations. Further, our success and achievement of our growth plans depend on our ability to recruit, hire, train and retain other highly qualified technical and managerial personnel. Competition for qualified employees among companies in the technology industry is intense, and the loss of any of such persons, or an inability to attract, retain and motivate any additional highly skilled employees required for the expansion of our activities, could have a materially adverse effect on us. The inability on our part to attract and retain the necessary personnel and consultants and advisors could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

 

If future market acceptance of our ElectriPlast® technology is poor, we will not be able to generate adequate sales to achieve profitable operations. Our future is dependent upon the success of our current and future marketing efforts put towards our ElectriPlast® technology. Our ElectriPlast® technology will be marketed to manufacturers of products that will benefit from the incorporation of any of the ElectriPlast® applications into their products. As of June 30, 2017, we have not generated substantial revenue from our ElectriPlast® technology. If future market acceptance of our ElectriPlast® technology is poor, we will not be able to generate adequate sales to achieve profitable operations.

 

We have limited manufacturing capabilities and rely entirely on contract manufacturers and suppliers to manufacture and distribute our products. If they experience manufacturing or distribution difficulties, or are otherwise unable to manufacture and distribute sufficient quantities to meet demand, our commercialization efforts may be materially harmed. We have no internal manufacturing or distribution capabilities. Instead, we rely on a combination of contract manufacturers and our partners to manufacture Electriplast, and to distribute that product to third party purchasers. Our manufacturers may experience problems with their respective manufacturing and distribution operations and processes, including for example, quality issues, including product specification and stability failures, quality procedural deviations, improper equipment installation or operation, utility failures, contamination and natural disasters. Any delay or disruption in the availability of our products from third parties could result in production disruptions, delays or higher costs with consequent adverse effects on us.

 

Dependence on outside suppliers and manufacturers could disrupt our business if they fail to meet our expectations. Currently, we rely on outside suppliers and manufacturers to produce ElectriPlast® for us. While we have entered into formal arrangements with outside suppliers and manufacturers for the production of ElectriPlast® if any of them should become too expensive or suffer from quality control problems or financial difficulties, we would have to find alternative sources. If alternative sources are not readily available, this could significantly disrupt our business.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

Our patent and other intellectual property rights may be subject to uncertainty and may be challenged or circumvented by competitors. We rely on a combination of patents, patent applications, trademarks, trade secrets and confidentiality procedures to protect our intellectual property rights, which we believe will give us a competitive advantage over our competitors. We have sought US patent protection for many of our ideas related to our ElectriPlast® technologies. Our intellectual property portfolio consists of over fifteen years of accumulated research and design knowledge and trade secrets. We have sought United States (“US”) patent protection for many of our ideas related to our ElectriPlast® technologies. Currently, we have filed 117 non-provisional US patent applications, 55 of which have been issued as patents, with 51 of those issued patents not yet expired. No assurances can be given that all patent applications will be approved; however, to the extent that patents are not granted, we will continue to attempt to commercialize these technologies without the protection of patents. As patents are issued, we will have the exclusive right to use and license the design(s) described in each issued patent for the life of the patent in the US.

 

Of the 117 non-provisional applications filed that have not issued as patents, 10 are currently pending, and 53 are no longer pending. Integral continues to pursue intellectual property protection through its patent and trademark portfolio while constantly evaluating its filings to judiciously apply resources to our most critical technologies. Integral has filed 12 Canadian patent applications, 2 of which have issued, with 10 no longer being active.  Integral has filed an International patent application, which published on September 25, 2014, claiming features of the Company’s capsule.  Subsequent to the year end the Company filed national stage applications based on this PCT on September 15, 2015 in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, China, Japan, South Korea, Europe, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, India, Thailand, Philippines, Singapore and Australia.  Subsequent to the year end the Company filed new US and PCT patent applications for Bipolar Plate and Method of Making and Using Same with a US publication date of November 3, 2016 and a PCT publication date of November 10, 2016.

 

Integral has one pending US trademark application for ELECTRIPLAST™, one registered US trademark for ELECTRIPLAST®, a registered US trademark for INTEGRAL (with design)®, and a pending US trademark application for WHERE LIGHTWEIGHTING STARTS™. In addition, Integral has a registered mark for ELECTRIPLAST® in China, Japan, Europe and Taiwan, plus a pending trademark application in Korea for ELECTRIPLAST™. In addition, Integral has pending trademark applications in China, Japan, Europe, Korea and Taiwan for WHERE LIGHTWEIGHTING STARTS™. These applications and registration establish rights for the use of these marks in commerce.

 

The issuance of a patent is not conclusive as to its validity or enforceability and, if a patent is issued, it is uncertain how much protection, if any, will be given to our patent if we attempt to enforce it. Because some patent applications in the United States may be maintained in secrecy until the patents are issued, patent applications in the United States and many foreign jurisdictions are typically not published until eighteen months after filing, and publications in the scientific literature often lag behind actual discoveries, we cannot be certain that others have not filed patent applications for technology covered by our issued patents or our pending applications or that we were the first to invent the technology. Our competitors have filed, and may in the future file, patent applications covering technology similar to ours. Any such patent application may have priority over our patent applications and could further require us to obtain rights to issued patents covering such technologies. Litigation, which could be costly and time consuming, may be necessary to enforce our current patents, or any patent issued in the future, or to determine the scope and validity of the proprietary rights of third parties. A competitor may successfully challenge the validity or enforceability of a patent or challenge the extent of the patent’s coverage. If the outcome of litigation is adverse to us, third parties may be able to use our patented technology without payment to us. Even if we are successful in defending such litigation, the cost of litigation to uphold the patent can be substantial.

 

It is possible that competitors may infringe upon our patents or successfully avoid them through design innovation. To stop these activities, we may need to file a lawsuit. These lawsuits are expensive and would consume time and other resources of the Company. In addition, there is a risk that a court would decide that our patent is not valid, that we do not have the right to stop the other party from using the inventions, or that the competitor’s activities do not infringe our patent.

 

Our competitive position is also dependent upon unpatented technology and trade secrets, which may be difficult to protect. Competitors may independently develop substantially equivalent proprietary information and techniques that would legally circumvent our intellectual property rights. The inability to adequately protect our intellectual property rights, or any substantial expenses incurred in protecting our intellectual property rights, could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

Obtaining and maintaining our patent protection depends on compliance with various procedural, document submissions, fee payment and other requirements imposed by governmental patent agencies, and our patent protection could be reduced or eliminated for non-compliance with these requirements. The PTO and various foreign governmental patent agencies require compliance with a number of procedural, documentaries, fee payment and other provisions during the patent process. There are situations in which noncompliance can result in abandonment or lapse of a patent or patent application, resulting in partial or complete loss of patent rights in the relevant jurisdiction. In such an event, competitors might be able to enter the market earlier than would otherwise have been the case.

 

Confidentiality agreements with employees and others may not adequately prevent disclosure of our trade secrets and other proprietary information and may not adequately protect our intellectual property, which could limit our ability to compete. We rely in part on trade secret protection in order to protect our proprietary trade secrets and unpatented know-how. However, trade secrets are difficult to protect, and we cannot be certain that others will not develop the same or similar technologies on their own. We have taken steps, including entering into confidentiality agreements with our employees, consultants, outside collaborators and other advisors, to protect our trade secrets and unpatented know-how. These agreements generally require that the other party keep confidential and not disclose to third parties all confidential information developed by the party or made known to the party by us during the course of the party’s relationship with us. We also typically obtain agreements from these parties which provide that inventions conceived by the party in the course of rendering services to us will be our exclusive property. However, these agreements may not be honored and may not effectively assign intellectual property rights to us. Enforcing a claim that a party illegally obtained and is using our trade secrets or know-how is difficult, expensive and time consuming, and the outcome is unpredictable. In addition, courts outside the United States may be less willing to protect trade secrets or know-how. The failure to obtain or maintain trade secret protection could adversely affect our competitive position.

 

The use of our technologies could potentially conflict with the rights of others. Our competitors, or others, may have or may acquire patent rights that they could enforce against us. If our products conflict with patent rights of others, third parties could bring legal actions against us, our suppliers or customers, claiming damages and seeking to enjoin manufacturing and marketing of the affected products. If these legal actions are successful, in addition to any potential liability for damages, we could be required to alter our products or obtain a license in order to continue to manufacture or market the affected products. We may not prevail in any legal action and a required license under the patent may not be available on acceptable terms or at all. The cost to us of any litigation or other proceeding relating to intellectual property rights, even if resolved in our favor, could be substantial. The inability to adequately protect our intellectual property rights, or any substantial expenses incurred in protecting our intellectual property rights, could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.

 

If there are defects and errors in the Company’s technology, it may lose revenues. Developing, marketing and sale of our products and services may subject us to product liability claims. We currently do not have insurance coverage against product liability risks. Although we intend to purchase such insurance, such insurance coverage may not be adequate to satisfy any liability that may arise. Regardless of merit or eventual outcome, product liability claims may result in decreased demand for a service, injury to our reputation, and loss of revenues. Defects and errors in current or future services or products could result in delay or prevent further deployment of the Company’s technology, lost revenues, or a delay in or failure to achieve market acceptance. Any of these scenarios could seriously harm the Company’s business and operating results. If the Company’s products contain defects not discovered in the process of development or in its current deployment, it could seriously undermine the perceived trust and security needed for a commercial system and could delay or prevent market acceptance of its technology resulting in material adverse effects to the Company’s business and operating results. Any defect or error could also deter potential customers, result in loss of customer confidence and adversely affect the Company’s existing customer relationships and may result in losses that could be material to us.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

How future issuances of common stock pursuant to our stock plans will affect you.  We currently do not have a stock option plan in effect.  As of June 30, 2017, 150,000 options are issued and fully vested at a weighted-average exercise price of $0.25 per share. These options were previously issued under its 2001, 2003 and 2009 stock option plans. The Company is reviewing several alternatives to replace its 2001, 2003, and 2009 Stock Option Plans with a new omnibus stock option plan (the “New Plan”).   In certain cases, we have made contractual commitments to provide shares or stock option grants in anticipation of putting in place the New Plan.  The New Plan will allow us to attract and retain key employees or service providers as we continue to develop our business.  We will obtain the necessary approvals based on the attributes of the plan.  

 

We do not expect to be able to pay cash dividends in the foreseeable future, so you should not make an investment in our stock if you require dividend income. The payment of cash dividends, if any, in the future rests within the discretion of our board of directors and will depend upon, among other things, our earnings, our capital requirements and our financial condition, as well as other relevant factors. We have not paid or declared any cash dividends upon our common stock since our inception and by reason of our present financial status. Our contemplated future financial requirements do not contemplate or anticipate making any cash distributions upon our common stock in the foreseeable future.

 

The market price of our common stock is highly volatile, and several factors that are beyond our control, including our common stock being historically thinly traded, could adversely affect its market price. Historically, our common stock has been thinly traded and the market price has been highly volatile. During the year ended June 30, 2017, the closing bid price of our common stock has been quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board from as low as $0.03 to as high as $0.21. These quotations reflect interdealer prices without retail markup, markdown, or commission and may not represent actual transactions. For these and other reasons, our stock price is subject to significant volatility and will likely be adversely affected if our revenues or earnings (or lack of revenues or earnings) in any quarter fail to meet the investment community’s expectations. Additionally, the market price of our common stock could be subject to significant fluctuations in response to:

 

 

announcements of new products or sales offered by us or our competitors;

 

actual or anticipated variations in quarterly operating results;

 

changes in financial estimates by securities analysts, if any;

 

significant developments relating to our relationships with our customers or suppliers;

 

customer demand for our products;

 

investor perceptions of our industry in general;

 

announcements by us or our competitors of new products, significant acquisitions, strategic partnerships or divestitures

 

changes in the market’s perception of us or the nature of our business; and

 

sales of our common stock.

 

Securities class action litigation is often instituted against companies following periods of volatility in their stock price. This type of litigation could result in substantial costs to us and divert our management’s attention and resources. Moreover, securities markets may from time to time experience significant price and volume fluctuations for reasons unrelated to operating performance of particular companies. These market fluctuations may adversely affect the price of our common stock and other interests in our company at a time when you want to sell your interest in us.

 

Future sales of common stock into the public marketplace will increase the public float and may adversely affect the market price. As of June 30, 2017, there are approximately 4.2 million in options and warrants that exercisable into common stock both affiliates (officers and directors) and non-affiliates under Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. In general, under Rule 144, a person who has held stock for six months and is not an affiliate of the Company may sell their exercisable options and warrants without limitation under Rule 144. Future sales of common stock will increase the public float and may have a material adverse effect on the market price of the common stock, which in turn could have a material adverse effect on our ability to obtain future funding as well as create a potential market overhang.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

If our common stock remains subject to the SEC’s penny stock rules, broker-dealers may experience difficulty in completing customer transactions and trading activity in our securities may be adversely affected. Unless our securities are listed on a national securities exchange, or we have net tangible assets of $5,000,000 or more and our common stock has a market price per share of $5.00 or more, transactions in our common stock will be subject to the SEC’s “penny stock” rules. If our common stock remains subject to the “penny stock” rules promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, broker-dealers may find it difficult to effectuate customer transactions and trading activity in our securities may be adversely affected.

 

Under these rules, broker-dealers who recommend such securities to persons other than institutional accredited investors must:

 

 

make a special written suitability determination for the purchaser;

 

 

receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction prior to sale;

 

 

provide the purchaser with risk disclosure documents which identify certain risks associated with investing in “penny stocks” and which describe the market for these “penny stocks” as well as a purchaser’s legal remedies; and

 

 

obtain a signed and dated acknowledgment from the purchaser demonstrating that the purchaser has actually received the required risk disclosure document before a transaction in a “penny stock” can be completed.

 

As a result, if our common stock becomes subject to the penny stock rules, the market price of our securities may be depressed, and you may find it more difficult to sell our securities.

 

Because certain of our stockholders control a significant number of shares of our common stock, they may have effective control over actions requiring stockholder approval. Our directors, executive officers and principal stockholders, and their respective affiliates, beneficially own approximately 2.91% to adjust of our outstanding shares of common stock. As a result, these stockholders, acting together, would have the ability to control the outcome of matters submitted to our stockholders for approval, including the election of directors and any merger, consolidation or sale of all or substantially all of our assets. In addition, these stockholders, acting together, would have the ability to control the management and affairs of our company. Accordingly, this concentration of ownership might harm the market price of our common stock by:

 

 

delaying, deferring or preventing a change in corporate control;

 

 

impeding a merger, consolidation, takeover or other business combination involving us; or

 

 

discouraging a potential acquirer from making a tender offer or otherwise attempting to obtain control of us.

 

If securities or industry analysts do not publish research or reports about our business, or if they change their recommendations regarding our stock adversely, our stock price and trading volume could decline. The trading market for our common stock will be influenced by the research and reports that industry or securities analysts publish about us or our business. We do not currently have and may never obtain research coverage by industry or financial analysts. If no or few analysts commence coverage of us, the trading price of our stock would likely decrease. Even if we do obtain analyst coverage, if one or more of the analysts who cover us downgrade our stock, our stock price would likely decline. If one or more of these analysts cease coverage of our company or fail to regularly publish reports on us, we could lose visibility in the financial markets, which in turn could cause our stock price or trading volume to decline.

Overview

 

Integral focuses the majority of its resources on researching, developing and commercializing its ElectriPlast® technologies. The technology possesses a multitude of applications in a myriad of industries. These include the auto industry, the aerospace, consumer electronics, and commercial aviation industries, among others. One key factor that could drive demand for ElectriPlast is the need for light-weighting. Automotive and aerospace are leading the way to achieve reduced emissions and increased fuel economy. Light-weighting involves the substitution of lighter materials, often times using carbon-fiber based, for heavier (aluminum and other metals) materials.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

In addition to ElectriPlast® technology, the Company also devotes resources to the development and commercialization of its bipolar plate technology. Although the bipolar plate has applications for a variety of battery and storage systems, the Company is focused initially on applications in lead acid batteries. In early 2015, the Company filed non-provisional patents associated with its bipolar battery technology and bipolar plate products. The Company believes the bipolar battery plate and associated power storage technology provides long-sought breakout weight savings and performance benefits for the lead-acid battery market, especially in automotive with the global transition to the electrification of vehicles. Industry analysts forecast that by 2025 over 75% of all vehicles sold globally will be a hybrid electric variant and that by 2050 hybrid and electric vehicles will comprise over 98% of vehicles sold with the internal combustion engine car being phased out. These electrified vehicles will have new 12V and 48V electrical systems having greater power demands. We have focused on this opportunity and have met USABC’s battery specifications for these types of batteries.

 

The company is pursuing several strategies to commercialize the bipolar battery and power storage technology, including developing the technology internally as an Integral Technologies business unit and is also in discussions with several investor groups to potentially partnering to fully develop batteries for consumer and industrial consumption. The first prototype battery utilizing the ElectriPlast bipolar technology was produced in 2015. The battery was produced by Advanced Battery Concepts. Based on the initial prototype and a series of subsequent discussions, the Company announced on April 26, 2016 a Joint Technology Assessment Program (“JTAP”) with Advanced Battery Concepts, an industry leader in large format bi-polar battery design and manufacture. Working under the JTAP, the parties produced a second, more advanced bipolar battery which it showcased at the 2016 North America Battery Show in Novi, Michigan and at the Company’s special shareholders meeting in Evansville, Indiana in November 2016.

 

Integral also allocates resources to expand and protect the extensive intellectual property holdings surrounding its ElectriPlast® technology. Integral’s business strategy focuses on the leveraging of its intellectual property rights and our strength in product design and material innovation. Integral is focusing its business development and marketing efforts on securing licensing and/or joint development agreements in areas for which it currently hold patents covering specific materials, components, parts, applications or end-products incorporating conductive resins and ElectriPlast technology. Integral collaborates with suppliers, Tier1 vendors, OEM's and manufacturers of products who would benefit from the incorporation of any of the ElectriPlast® applications.

 

ElectriPlast® is an innovative, electrically and thermally conductive resin-based material. The ElectriPlast® polymer is a compounded formulation of resin-based materials, which are conductively loaded, or doped, with a proprietary-controlled, balanced concentration of micron conductive materials, then pelletized. The conductive loading or doping within this pellet is then homogenized using conventional molding techniques and conventional molding equipment. The end result is a product that can be molded into any of the infinite shapes and sizes associated with plastics and rubbers, is non-corrosive, and can serve as an electrically conductive alternative

 

Various examples of applications for ElectriPlast® where Integral holds patent protection are: batteries, antennas, electronics shielding, lighting/LED circuitry, motors, switch actuators, resistors, medical devices, thermal management, toys and cable connector bodies, among others. We have been working to introduce these new applications and the ElectriPlast® technology on a global scale.

 

On February 20, 2018 the Company expanded its global reach through an exclusive ten (10) year license agreement for automotive applications with PolyOne Corp. PolyOne is a leading provider of specialized polymer materials, services, and solutions. Headquartered in Avon Lake, Ohio, PolyOne has operations in North America, South America, Europe and Asia, and operate in four segments: (1) Global Specialty Engineered Materials; (2) Global Color, Additives and Inks; (3) Performance Products and Solutions; and (4) PolyOne Distribution. The license agreement allows PolyOne to manufacture, sell and distribute conductive pellets using the Company’s know-how and certain patents for automotive related EMI/RFI shielding applications. Under the terms of the agreement, PolyOne is required to pay the Company an upfront fee and royalties from future sales during the term of the agreement. The agreement excludes the Company’s bipolar battery technology and the territory provided to Hanwha in an earlier agreement.

 

On June 26, 2017, the Company announced that it had been chosen by a global Tier 1 automotive supplier to provide its conductive plastic for an EMI shielding application in an automotive optical sensing system.  The ElectriPlast part will be going into a global automotive platform in approximately two million (2,000,000) vehicles with production expected to start in 2018 for a major United States auto manufacturer. The program is expected to run for five years upon commencement.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

On June 21, 2017, the Company announced that its ElectriPlast material had been chosen by a leading European electric luxury SUV maker for use in a high voltage connector.  This electric SUV made its European debut in late 2017. The order will run through 2024 and marks ElectriPlast's first European automotive commercial order, and the second ElectriPlast order for use in an electric vehicle platform during the reporting period. The application was co-developed with a North American automotive Tier 1. 

 

In December 2017, the Company met with several prospective European investor partners in Europe regarding the feasibility of establishing a bipolar battery R&D facility and manufacturing plant in the UK. Companies and organizations included a global chemical company, a luxury car manufacturer, a leading UK university specializing in advance battery development and manufacturing processes for industry, and representatives from a local government that were supportive of providing infrastructure and tax incentives for establishing a battery plant in their district. The Company continues these discussions.

 

Companies continue to incorporate ElectriPlast in their on-going product development evaluations. The Company continues to provide ElectriPlast material to LeddarTech to produce its lens barrels in its LeddarOne Sensing Module, a compact and low-cost lidar that provides valuable presence detection and distance measurement capabilities to a wide range of finished products, including its use in autonomous vehicles and drone aircraft where weight-reduction, cost, and performance and robustness are essential to meet stringent operational requirements.

 

The Company continues its discussions with a major Asian lead acid battery manufacturer regarding the use of its bi-polar plate technology.  Included in the discussions are items for Integral to supply batteries with ElectriPlast plates for validation testing to the Asian battery manufacturer.  The batteries purchased by the Asian company will be engineered to meet their unique requirements.  The prospective collaboration would provide the Asian battery company with the most advanced bi-polar plates for the lead acid battery market. The Integral bi-polar plate allows greater specific energy and energy density of the lead acid battery, which translates to significantly greater energy storage in the smaller size and weight battery package. The objective of the collaboration is for the Asian company to adopt the technology.

 

In Asia, the Company, through its reseller agreement with a US based nickel-plated carbon fiber manufacturer, continues to provide and market its conductive material to Hanwha for projects with its automotive customers, as well as other prospective customers in Korea. The Company continues to support Chang Rim Eng. Inc. (“Chang Rim”) as it readies to commercialize ElectriPlast® in South Korea. The Company announced on October 8, 2014, that Chang Rim had successfully completed its prototype phase for a motor casing targeting the domestic Asia automotive market. On August 20, 2015, the Company announced with Chang Rim the largest ElectriPlast order in the Company’s history.

 

In January 2016, the Company and a Tier 1 partner reached a technical milestone when its wire shielding application currently under development obtained the highest shielding effectiveness to date. The Company believes the level of shielding effectiveness validates the commercial viability of the technology. The companies have completed subsequent trials and continue to work towards commercialization for an effective alternative in replacing the more-costly metal, braided shielding.

 

Funding remains a priority for the Company, and during the year ended June 30, 2017, $826,133 was raised through a combination of debt and private placements, net of loan repayments.

 

Pursuant to a separation agreement with the previous CFO, the Company will issue 36,000 shares of common stock and settle all unpaid fees from July 1, 2016 to February 10, 2017 (effective date of resignation).

 

The Company has not generated significant revenue since inception. Although the Company has begun to receive some revenue from the sale of material for commercial applications, the Company is devoting substantially all its efforts to developing the business. From inception on February 12, 1996 through June 30, 2017, we have accrued an accumulated deficit of approximately $63 million.

 

As of June 30, 2017, our assets were $300,924, consisting of cash of $16,764, accounts receivable of $425, prepaid expense of $11,979, deferred debt discount of $201,432, and property and equipment of $70,324.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

As of June 30, 2017, current liabilities of $3,630,154 consisting of accounts payable and accruals of $1,973,983, related party payables of $438,087, a loan payable of $16,800, deferred revenues of $50,000, convertible debentures of $162,821 and derivative liabilities of $998,463. Non-current liabilities consist of deferred revenues of $270,833.

 

As of June 30, 2017, total stockholders' deficit was $3,600,063.

 

Results of Operations of the Year Ended June 30, 2017, compared to the Year Ended June 30, 2016

 

Our net loss for the year ended June 30, 2017, was $5,737,907 compared to a net loss of $4,639,698 for the year ending June 30, 2016, representing an increase of $1,098,209. Significant changes for year ended June 30, 2017 compared to the prior fiscal year have been described as follows:

 

 

Revenues decreased by $24,353. The decrease is a result of no longer earning services revenues due to the Company shifting its focus to entering into technology license agreement.

 

Operating expenses for the year ended June 30, 2017, were $2,789,801 compared to operating expenses of $3,547,124 for the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year, a decrease of $757,323. Significant changes for the year ended June 30, 2017, compared to the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year have been described as follows:

 

 

Consulting fees increased by $691,262. Consulting fees of $1,420,120 include non-cash fair value of obligations to issue shares of $12,720. This is compared to consulting fees of $728,858 provided in the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year that included non-cash obligations to issue shares of $26,460. The increase is primarily a result of the company switching from the use of employees to consultants during the year;

 

Advertising and marketing expense decreased by $318,428 to $2,031 for the year ended June 30, 2017 from $320,459 in the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year is attributed to management’s focus on cash conservation strategies;

 

Salaries and benefits decreased by $478,269. Salaries and benefits incurred of $417,929 for the year ended, 2017, compared to $896,198 in the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. The decrease is primarily a result of the Company switching from the use of full-time employees to part-time consultants during the year;

 

Non-cash, Stock based compensation charges for the vesting of restricted shares were $196,576 compared to $179,584 in the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. The increase is due to all remaining stock awards vesting during the year;

 

Professional fees decreased by $177,360 to $291,796 for the year ended June 30, 2017 from $463,156 for the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. The decrease is primarily a result of the Company not needing to spend as much relating to new patents and reducing its audit fees;

 

Research and development costs decreased by $164,147 to $497,224 for the year ended June 30, 2017 from $661,371 for the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year primarily due to shifting management’s focus on securing licensing the Company’s technology;

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

Other items for the year ended June 30, 2017, totaled $3,020,466 compared to $1,170,595 for the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year, an increase of $1,849,871. Significant changes for the year ended June 30, 2017, compared to the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year have been described as follows:

 

 

Interest Expense increased by $308,398. Interest expense of $850,656 includes non-cash amortization of convertible debt of $771,768 (2016 - $511,623), net of amortization of deferred debt discount of $25,284 (2016 - $nil) and non-cash amortization of debt issuance costs of $97,220 (2016 - $nil) and is a result of an increase in debt financing activities in the current year;

 

Fair value loss on derivative financial liabilities increased by $2,789,129. Fair value loss on derivative financial liabilities is non-cash fair value measurement calculated using the Black-Sholes option pricing model and a binomial lattice model where appropriate and was higher for the year ended June 30, 2017, due to an increase in convertible debt financing activities;

 

Gain on extinguishment of debt increased by $1,392,778. Gain on extinguishment of debt is a non-cash measurement and arises due to the difference between the carrying value of the debt (after a final mark to the embedded derivative’s fair value) and the shares issued to settle the debt measured at their then-current fair value. This difference was higher compared to the prior year as a result of an increase in the amount of convertible debt settled;

 

Fair value loss on warrant liability increased by $138,616. Fair value loss on warrant liability is a non-cash fair value measurement calculated using the Black-Sholes option pricing model and a binomial lattice model where appropriate and was higher for the year ended June 30, 2017. The increase in the loss is due to the decline in share price comparing June 30, 2017 to June 30, 2016.

 

For the year ended June 30, 2017, our cash used in operating activities was $853,219 compared to $2,515,246 used during the period of the corresponding fiscal year.  The decrease in cash used of $1,662,027 is primarily associated with a change in the nature of the liabilities in the two years as well as a management’s focus on cash conservation strategies.

 

For the year ended June 30, 2017, our cash provided by financing activities was $826,133 compared to $2,459,045 of the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. Financing activities consist of proceeds of $554,155 from issuance of common stock (2016 - $28,000), proceeds from exercise of warrants $nil (2016 - $889,771), proceeds from loans of $92,000 (2016 – $130,000), proceeds from convertible debentures of $290,000 (2016 - $1,863,950), repayment of loans of $110,022 (2016 - $221,034), and repayment of convertible debentures of $nil (2016 - $231,642).

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of June 30, 2017, we had $16,764 in cash on hand, and we estimate that we will continue to require $2.0 to $3.0 million annually of additional financing to fund our ongoing operating and capital expenditures in order to carry out our business plan and to continue to operate during our fiscal year ending June 30, 2018. The Company has historically funded this requirement through a combination of debt and equity proceeds. Until such time as the Company launches material product-based manufacturing operations, we believe our funding need will remain approximately $2M annually, and we will disclose promptly any changes to that estimate.

 

Based on our current cash and cash equivalents levels and expected cash flow from operations, we believe our current cash position is not sufficient to fund our cash requirements during the next twelve months, including operations and capital expenditures. We intend to license our proprietary technology and services or obtain equity and/or debt financing to support our current and proposed operations and capital expenditures. There can be no assurance, however, that any such opportunities may arise, or that any such acquisitions may be consummated. Additional financing may not be available on satisfactory terms when required. In addition, the trading price of our common stock and a downturn in the equity and debt markets could make it more difficult to obtain financing through the issuance of equity or debt securities. To the extent that we raise additional funds by issuing equity securities, our stockholders may experience significant dilution. We currently have no firm commitments for any additional capital. There is no guarantee that we will be successful in raising the funds required. If additional financing is not available or is not available on acceptable terms, we will have to curtail our operations.

 

The Company’s cash usage since inception in 1996 has been funded primarily from proceeds from the issuance of common stock. The company has issued warrants which have the potential to yield $1,129,840 calculated as 3,209,465 warrants exercisable at $0.30 per share and 835,000 warrants exercisable at $0.20 per share. In the event the stock price rises to certain levels in the future and that some or all of the warrant holders elect to acquire Common Stock shares by exercising their warrants, prior to the expiry date, the Company may raise additional funds from warrant holders. We have no ability to forecast future stock price movements nor are we able to determine how many warrant holders would elect to acquire shares by exercising their warrants. Subsequent to year end the company has raised $200,000 in convertible debt, $272,400 in loans and entered into a license deal raising $1,000,000.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

We are currently in limited manufacturing operations. As demand continues to grow and our need to increase capacity, reduce manufacturing costs and to improve margins, we would consider directly entering into the manufacturing business, including the possibility of acquiring existing assets or an operating company to help us accelerate this process, however this will only be possible through additional capital.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Stock based-compensation:

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation expense associated with stock options and other forms of equity compensation by estimating the fair value of share-based payment awards on the date of grant using a Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense over the requisite service periods in the Company’s statement of operations. The Company uses the straight-line single-option method to recognize the value of stock-based compensation expense for all share-based payment awards. Stock-based compensation expense recognized in the statement of operations is reduced for estimated forfeitures, as it is based on awards ultimately expected to vest. Forfeitures are estimated at the time of grant and revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates.

 

Revenue recognition

 

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013, the Company signed a ten-year license agreement with Hanwha Advanced Materials Co., Ltd., (“Hanwa”), of South Korea. For license agreements that the Company enters into, revenue is recognized when all four of the following criteria are met: (i) a contract is executed, (ii) the contract price is fixed and determinable, (iii) delivery of the service or products has occurred, and (iv) collectability of the contract amounts is reasonably assured. The upfront license fees have been recorded over the term of the license agreement.

 

The Company’s license agreements can provide for upfront license fees, maintenance payments, and/or substantive milestone payments. In accordance with revenue recognition guidance, the Company identifies all of the deliverables at the inception of the agreement. License fees which are nonrefundable fees will be evaluated for standalone value to the licensor and may be recognized upon delivery pursuant to terms of the agreement. Upfront nonrefundable fees associated with license and development agreements where the Company has continuing involvement that does not meet the requirement of a separate deliverable are recorded as deferred revenue and recognized over the estimated service period. The Company may also enter into agreements to provide engineering services. The Company recognizes revenue from engineering services as the service has been performed and amounts are reasonably assured of collection.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As at June 30, 2017, the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act). Based upon that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of the Evaluation Date, our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is (1) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in applicable rules and forms, and (2) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the Exchange Act. These rules refer to the controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Internal control over financial reporting includes these policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of the end of the period covered by this report. Our evaluation was based on the criteria for smaller public companies set forth in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO 2013). Based on our evaluation under those criteria, our management concluded that, as of June 30, 2017, our internal control over financial reporting is ineffective due to the material weakness described below.

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. The primary factor contributing to the material weakness, which relates to our financial statement close process, was as follows:

 

 

From time to time we experience delays in receiving, reviewing and accounting for complex transactions including debt financings in a cost-effective manner.  As a result of these delays, we were not able to file our 10-K timely, which is evidence that we have a material weakness in internal controls.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

 

While management believes that the Company’s financial statements previously filed in the Company’s SEC reports have been properly recorded and disclosed in accordance with US GAAP, based on the material weakness identified above, management has worked on the following remediation initiative described below:

 

 

Management has consolidated its convertible debt under new and more simplified terms and has substantially reduced the complexity and volume of such debt holdings at year-end.

 

Management believes the action described above will remediate the material weakness we have identified and strengthen our internal controls over financial reporting.

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to the exemption provided to issuers that are neither “large accelerated filers” nor “accelerated filers” under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

 

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Internal Controls

 

There are inherent limitations to the effectiveness of any system of internal control over financial reporting, such as resource constraints, judgments used in decision-making, assumptions about the likelihood of future events, the possibility of human error and the risk of fraud. Accordingly, even an effective system of internal control over financial reporting can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to the preparation and presentation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Moreover, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness in future periods are subject to the risk that controls may be inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may deteriorate over time. Our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, do not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting are or will be capable of preventing or detecting all errors or fraud.

As of June 30, 2017, Integral has no Employee Benefit and Consulting Services Compensation Plans (the “Plans”) in effect. The Company is reviewing several alternatives to replace its 2001, 2003, and 2009 Stock Option Plans with a new omnibus stock option plan (the “New Plan”).   In certain cases, we have made contractual commitments to provide shares or stock option grants in anticipation of putting in place the New Plan.  The New Plan will allow us to attract and retain key employees or service providers as we continue to develop our business.  We will obtain the necessary approvals based on the attributes of the plan.  We anticipate that this New Plan will be implemented prior to June 30, 2019.

This plan was amended during December 2001 to increase the number of common stock options that may be granted from 2,500,000 to 3,500,000 stock options. As of June 30, 2017, and 2016, there were no common stock options available under this plan.

 

In April 2003, the Company adopted the Integral Technologies, Inc. 2003 Stock Plan (the "2003 Plan"), a non-qualified stock option plan under which the Company may issue up to 1,500,000 stock options. As of June 30, 2017, and 2016, there were no common stock options available under this plan.

 

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010, the Company adopted the Integral Technologies, Inc. 2009 Stock Plan (the "2009 Plan"), a non-qualified stock option plan under which the Company may issue up to 4,000,000 common stock options.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

 

To the Stockholders and Board of Directors of Integral Technologies, Inc.

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Integral Technologies, Inc. as at June 30, 2017 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit and cash flows for the year then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform an audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, based on our audit, these financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as at June 30, 2017 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, to date the Company has reported losses since inception from operations and requires additional funds to meet its obligations and fund the costs of its operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in this regard are described in Note 3. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

 

 

To the Shareholders, Audit Committee and Board of Directors

Integral Technologies, Inc.

Evansville, IN

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Integral Technologies, Inc. as of June 30, 2016, and the related consolidated statements of operations comprehensive loss, stockholders' deficit and cash flows for the year then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of its internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management as well as evaluating the overall consolidated financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Integral Technologies, Inc. as of June 30, 2016 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 3 to the consolidated financial statements, the company has suffered recurring losses from operations, negative cash flow from operations, and has an accumulated deficit. These factors raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 3. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

 

 

NOTE 1 - NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Integral Technologies, Inc. (the “Company” or “Integral”) was incorporated under the laws of the state of Nevada on February 12, 1996 and has recently relocated its head office to Evansville, Indiana, USA. The Company is in the business of researching, developing and commercializing new electrically-conductive resin-based materials called ElectriPlast.

 

The Company will be devoting all of its resources to the research, development and commercialization of its ElectriPlast technology.

 

 

NOTE 2 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“US GAAP”) and are presented in United States dollars.

 

Principles of consolidation

 

These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Integral Operating, LLC (“Operating”), Integral Vision Systems, Inc. ("IVSI"), Antek Wireless Inc. ("Antek"), Electriplast Corp. (formerly Plastenna, Inc.) (“Electriplast”), and Integral Technologies Asia, Inc. (“Asia”), which are currently inactive. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

 

Basic and diluted net loss per share

 

Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the year. Diluted net loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares and dilutive common share equivalents outstanding during the period. Because the Company has reported a net loss for all years presented, diluted net loss per common share is the same as basic net loss per common share for those years.

 

Stock issued in exchange for services

 

The valuation of common stock issued in exchange for services to non-employees is valued at an estimated fair market value of the Company’s stock price based upon trading, sales and other issuances of the Company's common stock. Stock-based compensation expense related to awards to non-employees is recognized based on the then-current fair value at each measurement date over the associated service period of the award, which is generally the vesting term, using the accelerated attribution method. The fair value of non-employee stock options is estimated using the Black-Scholes valuation model with assumptions generally consistent with those used for employee stock options, with the exception of the expected term, which is the remaining contractual life at each measurement date. Restricted shares are issued or become issuable when they vested and are measured at their grant date and recorded evenly over the vesting period.

 

Revenue recognition

 

The Company has not generated significant revenue since inception. Although the Company has begun to receive revenue from the sale of material for commercial applications, the Company is devoting substantially all its efforts to developing the business.

 

 

Integral Technologies, Inc.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

 

NOTE 2 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Revenue recognition (continued)

 

As discussed in Note 13, the Company signed a ten-year license agreement with Hanwha Advanced Materials Co., Ltd., (“Hanwa”), of South Korea. For license agreements that the Company enters into, revenue is recognized when all four of the following criteria are met: (i) a contract is executed, (ii) the contract price is fixed and determinable, (iii) delivery of the service or products has occurred, and (iv) collectability of the contract amounts is reasonably assured.

 

The Company’s license agreements can provide for upfront license fees, maintenance payments, and/or substantive milestone payments. In accordance with revenue recognition guidance, the Company identifies all of the deliverables at the inception of the agreement. License fees which are nonrefundable fees will be evaluated for standalone value to the licensor and may be recognized upon delivery pursuant to terms of the agreement. Upfront nonrefundable fees associated with license and development agreements where the Company has continuing involvement that does not meet the requirement of a separate deliverable are recorded as deferred revenue and recognized over the estimated service period. The Company may also enter into agreements to provide engineering services. The Company recognizes revenue from engineering services as the service has been performed and amounts are reasonably assured of collection.

 

Foreign currency translation

 

The Company’s functional and reporting currency is the US dollar. Transactions and balances for the Company’s operations that are not in US dollars are translated into US dollars at the exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet dates for monetary assets and liabilities, and at historical exchange rates for non-monetary assets and liabilities. Revenues and expenses are translated at the rate of exchange on the date of the transaction, except for amortization and depreciation, which are translated on the same basis as the related assets. Resulting translation gains or losses are included in the consolidated statements of operations. The foreign currency impact on the consolidated financial statements is immaterial.

 

Advertising

 

Advertising costs are charged to operations when incurred. Advertising expense was $2,031 and $39,357 for the years ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

 

Research and development

 

The Company expenses all research and development expenditures as incurred.

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant areas requiring the use of management estimates include valuation allowance for deferred income tax assets, the determination of the assumptions used in calculating the fair value of stock-based compensation and the determination of the assumptions used in calculating the fair value of derivative financial liabilities and the warrant liability. Actual results could differ from those estimates and could impact future results of operations and cash flows.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

 

NOTE 2 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

 

Financial instruments

 

We have issued financial instruments that contain embedded conversion features that qualify as derivatives and are therefore accounted for as liabilities. The derivative liabilities are initially recorded at fair value, with gains and losses arising from changes in fair value recognized in the consolidated statements of operations at each period end while such instruments are outstanding. The derivative liabilities relating to the convertible debt is valued using the Black-Scholes Model where appropriate. The fair value of the warrants issued with reset provisions were measured using the Monte Carlo method.

 

Fair value measurements

 

Assets and liabilities recorded at fair value in the balance sheets are categorized based upon the level of judgment associated with the inputs used to measure their fair value. For certain of the Company’s financial instruments including cash and accounts payable, the carrying values approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.

 

ASC 820 Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures specifies a hierarchy of valuation techniques based on whether the inputs to those valuation techniques are observable or unobservable. In accordance with ASC 820, these inputs are summarized in the three broad levels listed below:

 

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical securities;

 

Level 2 – Other significant observable inputs that are observable through corroboration with market data (including quoted prices in active markets for similar securities); and

 

Level 3 – Significant unobservable inputs that reflect management’s best estimate of what market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

 

The fair value measurement of the derivative liability and warrants with reset provisions are classified as a Level 3 measurement as further discussed under Fair Value Measurements.

 

Income taxes

 

The Company uses the asset and liability approach in its method of accounting for income taxes that requires the recognition of deferred tax liabilities and assets for expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the carrying amounts and the tax basis of assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance against deferred tax assets is recorded if, based upon weighted available evidence, it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

The impact of an uncertain tax position that is more likely than not of being sustained upon audit by the relevant taxing authority is recognized at the largest amount that is more likely than not to be sustained. No portion of an uncertain tax position will be recognized if the position has less than a 50% likelihood of being sustained.

 

Stock-based compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation expense associated with stock options and other forms of equity compensation by estimating the fair value of share-based payment awards on the date of grant using the market price of common stock or the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense over the requisite service periods in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations. The Company uses the straight-line single-option method to recognize the value of stock-based compensation expense for all share-based payment awards. Stock-based compensation expense recognized in the consolidated statements of operations is reduced for estimated forfeitures, as it is based on awards ultimately expected to vest. Forfeitures are estimated at the time of grant and revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates.

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are recorded at cost and depreciated over the estimated useful lives using the straight-line method of depreciation. Amortization of the leasehold improvements is computed using the straight-line method over the lesser of the estimated useful lives of the underlying assets and the term of the related lease.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued amended revenue recognition guidance to clarify the principles for recognizing revenue from contracts with customers. The guidance requires an entity to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance also requires expanded disclosures relating to the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. Additionally, qualitative and quantitative disclosures are required about customer contracts, significant judgments and changes in judgments, and assets recognized from the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract. The requirements are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is not permitted. The Company is evaluating the impact of the amended revenue recognition guidance on our financial statements.

 

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties About an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern (“ASU 2014-15”).  ASU 2014-15 provides guidance on determining when and how to disclose going-concern uncertainties in the financial statements.  The new standard requires management to perform interim and annual assessments of an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year of the date the financial statements are issued.  An entity must provide certain disclosure if conditions or events raise substantial doubt about the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern.”  ASU 2014-15 applies to all entities and is effective for annual period ending after December 15, 2016, and interim periods thereafter, with early adoption permitted.  The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation:  Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which relates to the accounting for employee share-based payments.  This standard addresses several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment award transactions, including: (a) income tax consequences; (b) classification of awards as either equity or liabilities; and (c) classification on the statement of cash flows.  This standard will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact the adoption of this ASU will have on our financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases, amending the existing accounting standards for lease accounting, including requiring lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheets and making targeted changes to lessor accounting. The guidance will be effective in the first quarter of 2019 and allows for early adoption. The new standard requires a modified retrospective transition approach for all leases existing at the date of initial application, with an option to use certain transition relief. ASU 2016-02 provides for transition relief, which includes not electing to (i) reassess whether any expired or existing contract is a lease or contains a lease, (ii) reassess the lease classification of any expired or existing leases and (iii) expense any capitalized initial direct costs for any existing leases. The Company will continue to assess the impact of the new standard.

NOTE 3 - GOING CONCERN

 

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which assumes the Company will continue in operation for the foreseeable future and will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the ordinary course of business. The Company’s operations have resulted in a net loss of $5,737,907 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 (2016 - $4,639,698), and an accumulated deficit of $63,360,189 (2016 - $57,622,282) and a working capital deficiency of $3,600,986 as at June 30, 2017 (2016 - $1,967,917). The Company does not have sufficient revenue-producing activities to fund its expenditure requirements to continue to advance researching, developing and commercializing its conductive plastics technology, ElectriPlast. Subsequent to year end, the Company raised $1,000,000 pursuant to a license agreement and $200,000 pursuant to a convertible debt agreement (note 16). The Company estimates that, without further funding, it will deplete its cash resources within six months. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

These consolidated financial statements do not reflect adjustments that would be necessary if the going concern assumption were not appropriate because management believes that the actions already taken or planned will mitigate the adverse conditions and events that raise doubts about the validity of the going concern assumption used in preparing these consolidated financial statements. Management intends to raise additional capital through stock and debt issuances to finance operations. If none of these events occur, there is a risk that the business will fail.

Stock option activity (continued)

 

During the year ended June 30, 2014, the Company entered into employment agreements, whereby the employees would be granted restricted shares. The holder of a restricted share award is generally entitled at all times on and after the date of the agreement to exercise the rights of a shareholder of the Company, including the right to vote and the right to receive dividends on the shares. These shareholders do not have the ability to sell, transfer or otherwise encumber the restricted shares awards until they fully vest. The restricted shares granted vest over three or four-year periods and the grant date fair value of the awards is recognized as expense over the vesting period. During the year ended June 30, 2017, total compensation expense of $196,576 ( June 30, 2016 - $179,584) was recognized as stock-based compensation and included in selling, general and administration expense.
