Big Stick Media Corporation Announces Intention to Repurchase Shares

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 11, 2009) - Big Stick Media Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BSM) announces that on September 10, 2009 the TSX Venture Exchange has accepted its notice of intention relating to the repurchase by BSM of certain of its issued and outstanding common shares pursuant to a normal course issuer bid undertaken in accordance with the rules and policies of the Exchange.

Subject to regulatory approval, in connection with the normal course issuer bid, BSM proposes to purchase up to 1,199,601 common shares (or 5% of the total number of common shares currently outstanding) between September 17, 2009, through September 16, 2010.

All purchases of common shares will be effected through the facilities of the Exchange and all common shares purchased will be cancelled.

As of the date hereof, there are 23,992,020 common shares of BSM issued and outstanding.

The common share purchases will be made through Canaccord Capital Corporation.

From time to time, the common shares of BSM may become available for purchase at prices which make them an attractive investment and an appropriate use of BSM's funds. It is anticipated that the purchase of common shares will benefit the remaining shareholders by increasing their equity interest in BSM's assets.

The directors of BSM believe that the purchase by BSM of its own shares at the prevailing market price may, in appropriate circumstances, be a responsible investment of funds on hand, and in the best interests of BSM, and any purchases made will be made on that basis. Pursuant to a previous normal course issuer bid, BSM purchased 345,000 of its own shares within the past twelve months (such amounts reflective of the five to one (5:1) consolidation of BSM's common shares which became effective on May 14, 2009).

BSM is based in Vancouver, British Columbia and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol "BSM". Additional information about BSM may be found at and under the corporate profile at
