EVANSVILLE, Ind., July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Integral Technologies, Inc. ("Integral" or the "Company") (OTC-QB: ITKG) announced today that Integral and The Ultimate Battery Co. ("Ultimate") have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (the "MOU") that outlines the sale and license of Integral's ElectriPlast bipolar battery plate technology (the "Technology") to Ultimate.
"Based on our due diligence and market research, the Technology represents a paradigm shift which generates substantial improvements in energy storage at all levels, from simplifying mass production and reducing costs, while being safer and more environmentally friendly," stated Maurizio Cunningham-Brown, CEO of Ultimate.
"With the potential to ultimately double energy densities for all battery chemistries, this partnership will benefit both our companies, as well as the industry, the environment and consumers globally. We are pleased that Ultimate will be working to further boost performance improvements in all areas - size, weight, capacity, power, cost and reliability. We believe that Ultimate's position within the industry and ability to deliver will lead to early adoption of the new technology," says Doug Bathauer, CEO of Integral.
Specifically, the MOU between Integral and Ultimate governs the basis for a definitive agreement such that Integral will license the Technology to Ultimate and, subject to certain conditions, sell its yet to be formed subsidiary that will hold the Technology, to Ultimate, in return for which Integral will receive $4,000,000 and 20% of the outstanding shares of Ultimate. Integral will also be the exclusive supplier of conductive plastic to Ultimate and receive up to $50 million in licensing fees based on Ultimate's revenues. A representative of Integral will also be appointed to the board of directors of Ultimate.
"We consider this to be a world changing technology and we're excited about the possibilities. The technical breakthroughs that have been made by the ElectriPlast engineering team, led by Slobodan Pavlovic, VP of Engineering and Mo Zeidan, CTO have been extraordinary. New products generated from the technology will provide power storage solutions that work much more effectively and economically, benefitting nearly every application requiring battery power, including electric wheelchairs, drones, airplanes, golf carts, and UPS (uninterruptable power supply). One of our primary interests is for automotive applications where this new technology will significantly increase travel ranges making electric vehicles a practical reality for more people" says Brian Stark, CFO, of Ultimate.
Both parties are working in good faith towards closing of the transaction described by the MOU which is subject to among other things definitive documentation and execution of agreed terms. The parties anticipate the transactions described by this MOU will be consummated but in the event that certain conditions as defined by the MOU are not fully met, then all of the terms described in the MOU may not be fully executed.
