MORRISVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - Feb 11, 2013) - Issuer Direct Corporation (OTCBB: ISDR), a market leader and innovator of disclosure management solutions and cloud-based compliance technologies, announced it has engaged Hayden IR, a fifteen-year-old, highly recognized, national investor relations firm, to raise its visibility and strengthen its relationships with the investment community.
"Over the past year, we have strengthened our financial position and transformed our overall product mix. These are important fundamentals as we begin to transition our business from a pure services organization to a more of a technology enabling organization focused on the adoption of our cloud based, end-to-end disclosure solutions," said Brian R. Balbirnie, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Balbirnie continued to say "we believe it is an appropriate time to retain a national investor relations firm to help us target and expand our investor audience and ensure we are communicating effectively with Wall Street. We look forward to working with the team of professionals at Hayden IR to execute this important goal."

Hayden delivers expertise and professionalism in such areas as investor management, relationship building, awareness campaigns, online presence and corporate identity.
Brett Maas, Managing Partner, of Hayden IR, added, "Issuer Direct represents a compelling opportunity as it transitions its business to a cloud based, software as a service (SaaS) recurring revenue model. The Company reported a 200% increase in net income in the third quarter on 36% revenue growth, more than $.50 per share in cash and less than $250,000 of debt. Issuer Direct has an outstanding reputation; it is growing the number of corporate issuers its serves with its technology platform, increasing revenue per client, and expanding the portfolio of products provided to individual clients through the cross-marketing of complementary functions."
Mr. Maas continued to say, "The Company's addressable opportunity is a fragmented market that includes 8,700 listed issuers, plus the over-the-counter markets, which use up to a dozen service providers in some cases, for legal, auditing, investor relations and other disclosure requirements of being a public company. The Company has an exciting business model, and is now virtually the only single sourced provider that combines all of those functions into one streamlined technology platform to save issuers money, improve overall disclosure and compliance -- allowing officers, directors and compliance professionals the ability to manage the entire back-office functions of their respective companies from one technology interface. Issuer Direct expects to report a strong fourth quarter and to deliver a record year, especially compelling as investors recognize a historically service based company has changed over to a fast growing, scalable, cloud-based technology organization. The team at Hayden IR looks forward to articulating this opportunity to the professional investment community."
