Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB.OB) Continues To Zero In On Commercially Viable Spider Silk

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc., a Michigan based development stage biotechnology company, is using genetic engineering to develop polymers and high performance fibers for commercial textile and specialty fiber applications. In particular, the company is focused on producing spider silk, one of the strongest fibers produced in nature.

Spider silk is made when spiders spin liquid protein into solid fibers. Spiders can produce a variety of silks, depending upon need, with certain kinds being both strong and flexible. Spider silk has an exceptional ability to absorb and dissipate energy, and, pound for pound, is much stronger than steel. Polymers with the properties of spider silk have long been sought, but spiders, being cannibalistic, cannot be raised in concentrated colonies. For this reason, there is currently no way to produce spider silk in commercial quantities.

But Kraig Biocraft may have finally solved the problem. The company has obtained the exclusive right to use the spider silk gene sequence in this particular field of research. Kraig Biocraft is now in the process of using genetic engineering to allow silkworms, which are much more compatible with commercial production, to produce spider silk.

The company has already successfully inserted spider silk DNA packets into silkworms, and has also confirmed that the insertions are successful and that the silkworms are producing proteins based on the insertions, proving that the research team has indeed altered the silkworm DNA.

Kraig Biocraft also recently announced that the research team, headed by Dr. Malcolm J. Fraser, has performed 5,000 genetic transfers in a single week, an unexpected success. Such volume insertion means a steady stream of different spider silk polymers, any of which could be of commercial significance. According to CEO Kim Thompson, “With this number of gene insertions the odds of our developing a viable polymer are increasing exponentially”.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB.OB): What’s So Exciting About Spider Silk?

Spider Silk is one of the strongest fibers found in nature. Along with its incredible strength, the fiber is also extremely elastic and resilient, and has several properties that are unmatched by even the most exotic of man-made fibers. One of the most important properties of spider silk, however, is its extreme resistance to breaking under strain. Relative to this property, spider silk outperforms virtually all known natural and synthetic fibers.

Because spider silk also has the unparalleled capacity to absorb energy and dissipate it in a very controlled manner, this fiber is especially attractive for applications where energy absorption is a key design factor. These applications include bulletproof vests, artificial ligaments, parachute cords, suspension cables and many others.

Pound for pound, spider silk is much stronger than steel. It is known to be at least five times stronger than steel of the same diameter. Spider silk also has some other unique and interesting characteristics. For example, a single strand of spider silk is significantly finer than a human hair as well as substantially lighter. It has been said that spider silk is so thin and light weight that a single strand long enough to circle the entire Earth would weigh less than 2 pounds.

There is little dispute whether or not spider silk has superiority over many manmade and natural fibers for certain applications. However, the issue is how to produce spider silk in commercial quantities at a reasonable cost. With Kraig Biocraft’s leading team of scientific experts and breakthroughs already taking place in the lab, the world is closer than ever to experiencing the many benefits offered by this exciting technology.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB.OB): The Target Market for Spider Silk

The market Kraig Biocraft Laboratories has targeted is generally referred to as the “technical textiles” market. This market encompasses a wide range of products that are used for a large number of different types of applications. The products sold into the technical textiles market are either finished products in themselves or are used as components to produce other products.

The specific sector of the technical textiles market targeted by the company is known as the high-performance fibers market and can be broken down into two main areas: Aramid fibers, the best known of these fibers being DuPont’s Kevlar which produces more than $5 billion in annual sales; and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibers, such as Spectra, which is produced by Honeywell International, Inc.

The worldwide market for these fibers and other high performance technical fibers is massive. It is estimated that this market generates $90 billion per year, with the United States accounting for more than half of the market. The industry has experienced significant growth over the past 10 years and is expected to continue growing at a similarly robust rate over the coming years.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB.OB) Reports Noteworthy Progress in Development of Site Specific Genetic Recombination

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. announced this morning that Dr. Fraser’s team has “made significant progress on developing enzymes and strategies for conducting site specific genetic recombination in silkworm.”

“In the Company’s view, the development of this particular gene splicing technology is the key to unlocking the tremendous commercial potential of spider silks and other recombinant polymers,” stated Kraig’s CEO, Kim K. Thompson. “Dr. Fraser’s report of this news from the laboratory is the culmination of years of scientific effort. It is a huge milestone on the path to commercialization,” continued Thompson.

“We believe that we are the only people who have this capability at this time.” Dr. Fraser added.

Dr. Fraser’s team of research scientists, working within University of Notre Dame laboratories, has made several significant advancements over the last four or five months. This most recent announcement follows shortly after the company’s report that it had performed approximately five thousand genetic insertions, and that it had achieved the activation of fluorescent marker gene sequences which the researchers incorporated into spider silk DNA packets.

Site specific genetic recombination allows for the genetic targeting of a specific location on a specific chromosome. This ability is potentially vital to the company’s work because of the strong influence of what geneticists call “location effects.” These effects do not result from the coding of a specific gene, but from the location of that gene on a specific chromosome.

Rewarding Shareholders with Dividends

Dividends, regarded as a key indicator of a company’s financial health and contributing significantly to a stock investor’s long-term wealth, can be a crucial factor in evaluating a company for long-term investment. In today’s market, it’s even more critical to build a portfolio of quality companies with the financial strength necessary to issue dividends.

A recent research study found that, in the year after large-cap companies raised their dividends, they outperformed their peers (based on total return) by an average of 1.8 percentage points. Those that began paying dividends for the first time, or reinstated them after a lapse, outperformed their peers by 2.7 percentage points. Small-cap and Micro-cap companies have also issued various types of dividends to reward existing investors as well as attract new investors.

Although the dividend payable dates for these companies have passed, some of the recently announced micro-cap dividends include EvergreenBancorp, Inc.’s (OTCBB: EVGG) 5% stock dividend and cash dividend of $0.035; Colorado Goldfields Inc.’s (OTCBB: CGFI) 30% stock dividend; and American Green Group, Inc.’s (PINKSHEETS: AMNE) preferred stock dividend. Companies that have upcoming dividend payable dates include United Community Banks, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: UCBI) quarterly dividend that will be paid in common stock on April 1, 2009; Syndication Inc.’s (PINKSHEETS: SYNJ) upcoming 5% stock dividend to be paid on April 29, 2009; and TIB Financial Corp.’s (NASDAQ: TIBB) stock dividend that is payable on April 10, 2009.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCBB: KBLB), a development-stage biotechnology company focused on developing high performance polymers and technical fibers, is a company we’re closely watching that recently approved a stock dividend. Shareholders of record, as of the close of business on the record date, will be issued nine additional shares for each share of Common Stock held. The company has made significant progress in their labs over the past few months and is closer than ever to finding a solution for producing commercial quantities of spider silk, a super-strength fiber that has an unparalleled capacity to absorb energy and dissipate it in a very controlled manner.

From January 1926 through December 2004, the annualized total return for the S&P 500 was 10.46% per year. Surprisingly, the dividend component consisted of 41.28% of that return. With dividends making such a profound impact on investors’ long-term returns, it is crucial that investors take dividends into consideration when making investments.
