Company Description

Tourmaline Oil Corp. is a Canadian intermediate crude oil and natural gas exploration and production company focused on long-term growth through an aggressive exploration, development, production and acquisition program in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. Tourmaline commenced active operations in the fall of 2008 with the objective of building a successful Canadian intermediate crude oil and natural gas exploration, development and production company with a long-term business strategy similar to that of Duvernay Oil Corp. and Berkley Petroleum Corp., companies previously founded and managed by certain key members of Tourmaline’s senior management team. During the two-year period since commencing active operations, Tourmaline, through a series of strategic acquisitions, farm-ins and land acquisitions combined with its active capital exploration and development program, has assembled an extensive undeveloped land position with a large, multi-year drilling inventory and operating control of important natural gas processing and transportation infrastructure in two core long-term growth areas – the Alberta Deep Basin and the Greater Peace River High. Tourmaline is executing a large-scale, repeatable capital exploration and development program in these two core long-term growth areas. Tourmaline’s long-term business strategy is to increase shareholder value by building an extensive asset base over two to three core exploration and production areas and exploiting and developing these areas to increase reserves, production and cash flows at an attractive return on invested capital. The Company seeks to execute this strategy by: aggressively drilling and developing its extensive undeveloped land position; adopting and employing advanced drilling and completion techniques; enhancing returns by focusing on operational and cost efficiencies; pursuing strategic acquisitions with significant potential synergies; and wildcat exploration drilling for new pool discoveries. Management believes Tourmaline has a number of competitive advantages that management expects will help the Company successfully execute its long-term business strategy including: an extensive undeveloped land position in two long-term growth areas; a large, multi-year drilling inventory; an incentivized management team with demonstrated operating and acquisition skills; majority operating control of the Company’s core assets; a strong balance sheet; and a focus on operational efficiencies and cost containment.

SailingStone Capital Partners invests client assets primarily in accordance with their Natural Resources Strategy and/or their Natural Gas Strategy. The Natural Resources Strategy invests primarily in equity securities of issuers that the firm considers to be engaged principally in natural resources industries anywhere in the world. These portfolios typically hold a limited number of securities. SailingStone seeks to purchase securities in companies with these characteristics when SailingStone believes the price reflects a limited possibility of permanent capital impairment. SailingStone's Natural Gas Strategy invests in equity securities of companies that produce natural gas in North America or engage in natural gas-related businesses that may benefit from an improvement in long-term natural gas fundamentals. The strategy is concentrated around companies that the firm believes possess a combination of the three attributes required to generate excess returns in a commoditized industry: producing assets which sit at the bottom of a steeply sloped supply cost curve, highly capable management teams with a strong track record of prudent capital allocation and value creation, and a deep inventory of advantaged assets into which capital can be deployed at high rates of return.

Leith Wheeler Investment Counsel Ltd.'s (LWIC) value-oriented Canadian Equity investment strategy seeks to invest companies that have some competitive advantage or franchise that will preserve the company’s ability to deliver attractive returns on capital. The firm realizes that the market usually recognizes and fully values these types of companies so they focus on finding solid businesses which may not be fully recognized by the market. Often these businesses may be under some temporary cloud or competitive pressure such that the franchise value is not clear to the market or the business lacks the speculative appeal or fad of the moment. LWIC takes meaningful positions in these companies and their culture that allows them to be patient until their investment thesis unfoldsLWIC's fixed income strategies emphasize consistency of returns and safety of capital by investing in notes and bonds issued by the Canadian federal and provincial governments and by corporations. As in the management of their equity portfolios, the firm focuses on the long-term outlook for interest rates and structures portfolios accordingly. A key component of our credit selection process is establishing a disciplined outlook for specific sectors of the fixed income credit market. Within each sector LWIC evaluates each individual security based on a rigorous bottom up analysis of the fundamentals of the business and the industry in which it operates.
