Vancouver’s Blackbird Energy Inc. (TSXV: BBI.V) formed an investor relations consulting agreement, initially for one year, with Calgary firm Brisco Capital Partners Corp., Blackbird said Jan. 20.

Through the investor relations consulting agreement, Brisco will provide and maintain “contact with the financial community, shareholders, investors and other stakeholders for the purpose of increasing awareness of the company and its activities. Brisco takes a full service approach and provides creative and effective investor relations programs for Canadian public companies,” Blackbird said.

Brisco’s director of investor relations Katrin Tosine, and Brisco’s founder Scott Koyich will direct the effort, Blackbird added.

Under the agreement Brisco will be granted 900,000 options, to vest in four equal quarterly tranches, for a year from the date of grant, the company said. The options will be exercisable at ten cents for two years from date of grant, the company added. 

The investor relations consulting agreement is subject to acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange, Blackbird said. Blackbird Energy explores, develops and produces oil and natural gas in western Canada.
