Torrent Energy Corporation announced it has retained U.S.-based Pfeiffer High Investor Relations, Inc., and Canada’s CHF Investor Relations (Cavalcanti Hume Funfer Inc.) to develop and manage a North American investor awareness campaign together. This program will be supplemented with an internet based program contracted through Stockgroup Media.
John Carlson, Torrent’s President and CEO, commented, “We are making significant progress with the development of our coalbed methane projects, and are committed to expanding investor recognition of our recent achievements and Torrent’s long-range growth prospects. CHF Investor Relations and Pfeiffer High Investor Relations are both highly respected firms with considerable experience in the energy sector. We look forward to working with both firms to deliver the Torrent story in the United States and Canada. The utilization of the Stockgroup programs will allow the Torrent story to be delivered to an expanded investor base.”
Geoff High, a principal with Pfeiffer High, said, “Torrent’s management team has established a compelling resource play, and given the pent up domestic demand for new energy reserves, we believe it is a story that will resonate with the investment community. Our objective is to expand Torrent’s audience among both buy- and sell-side investors seeking exposure to new opportunities in the energy industry.”
Cathy Hume, CEO of CHF Investor Relations, added, “Since I’ve known President John Carlson for many years now, our confidence in Torrent’s management team is solid. Canadian investors have a tremendous appetite for emerging resources companies and we look forward to bringing Torrent Energy to their attention.”
Michelle Bertram, Director of Public Company Sales, stated, “Stockgroup Media provides a variety of products and services designed for use by public companies to assist them with increasing their exposure. We value our customers and helping Torrent Energy communicate their message effectively, and to a wider audience, is the core of our business.”
