ID Watchdog Names the Investor Relations Group as its Investor Relations Advisors
DENVER, CO – March 13, 2009 ID Watchdog (TSX Venture: IDW), the most comprehensive consumer identity monitoring service available, has retained the Investor Relations Group (IRG) as its investor relations advisors.
A full-service, New York-based corporate communications firm that provides investor relations and public relations services to small- and micro-cap companies, the Investor Relations Group was founded by CEO Dian Griesel in 1996.
“Working with IRG, ID Watchdog hopes to promote increased awareness of its stock by consistently communicating with interested and qualified investors,” said ID Watchdog President Justin Yurek. “IRG’s longstanding record of working successfully with micro-cap companies makes it a good partner with ID Watchdog in reaching the investment community.”
Investor Relations Group will provide media consulting services and a full-service corporate communications package to ID Watchdog, and will be compensated $13,500 a month for a 12-month period. The contract will automatically renew for a successive one-year term.
”We are very pleased to be working with ID Watchdog. Identity theft is a national security issue as well as one that concerns each of us as individuals, and it is particularly rewarding to work with a company that is dedicated to educating investors and consumers about fraud prevention and protection,” said Dian Griesel, CEO of the Investor Relations Group (IRG). "IRG's investor relations program will use IRG’s proprietary competitive analysis strategies and extensive databases to target the broad scope of the investment community, including portfolio managers and analysts. IRG’s program will include pre-qualified one-on-one introductions, e-mail to investment professionals that have opted-in for communication, and general traditional outreach. Our team’s mandate will be to communicate ID Watchdog's corporate strategy, key initiatives for growth, and ongoing company developments."
ID Watchdog executives developed its patent-pending identity theft monitoring technology in conjunction with consumer advocates, consumer protection agencies, law enforcement agencies, banks, privacy experts and technology professionals. ID Watchdog’s technology searches a broad range of data sources for signs of identity theft and provides immediate containment and resolution services, which differentiates it from competitors that package credit monitoring as identity theft protection.
