“If you want a directional edge on Oil & Gas Sentiment, Turnstone Strategy (formerly SBM Inc.) has always delivered! Their analysis is unique, constructive, and always well ahead of conventional thinking. It has been and continues to add significant value to the portfolio.”

SCOTT DAWSON, CEO — OPEN RANGE ENERGY CORPORATION

“I forecast that the future will open up more creative utilization of their [Turnstone's] analysis for my company’s long term business strategy. My learnings have continued and my confidence has dramatically increased. I now anticipate a major purchase of equipment at the bottom of the most recent energy cycle, and unlike 2006 when I wasn’t a client, I will not pay top dollar for assets and then try to pay for them in a down-turned energy economy.”

MARK TANSLEY, PRESIDENT – TANSLEY ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES

"Their perspective is different and their conclusions are often counter to the conventional wisdom at any given point in time. That's worth listening to."

ERIC LEDAIN, SR. VP – ENERPLUS

"Great work on the oil price prognostication - your reports forewarning us of this 'correction' convinced me to sell my oil assets late last year [December 2013] - thanks again for the timely advice"

MIKE PERRY, PRESIDENT – EMERALD OPERATING COMPANY

"After Turnstone present their analysis, we watch versus other sources and what they say. It surprises us how quickly Turnstone's analysis shows what's real and what's not real. They also made the natural gas price call [April 2012]. When it was $9-10, they were predicting a big drop - and said it would go down to $2.00! We laughed at them! But then it was $4.00 and they said we hadn't hit the bottom yet. Then we saw they were right. Turnstone are way ahead of the curve."

RON HOZJAN, CFO – TAMARACK VALLEY ENERGY LTD.

“I got the chance to listen to Gil Dawson speak at an investor conference in 2015. I was so impressed with his presentation that I contacted him to learn more about what his company did and how I could benefit from their research. I ended up subscribing to Turnstone Strategy Services (TSI) to help guide my Construction Business, Stock, Bond and Real Estate investing decisions. Even though I am not directly involved in the Oil and Gas industry it impacts most, if not all, of my investments. Gil and Duncan are available anytime that I have questions which is something that I have not seen from any other comparable service. Nobody knows what the future will bring but the TSI services help me make a better educated decision.”

MICHAEL SPEERBRECKER, PRESIDENT – SPEERS CONSTRUCTION INC.

"Turnstone’s analysis is a welcome relief from traditional market analysis. On top of clear and comprehensive market data interpretation, there is an unbiased and very unique review of historical trends and patterns that assist in the forecast of short and medium term market conditions. The information provided by Turnstone is an excellent tool for seeing market opportunities or pitfalls before it is too late to react."
