I see it having an immediate impact on Premier Royalty since it gives them an experienced mentor to pilot the fairly new ship through trecherous waters.  I assume that SAND will put their people on the board.  As to the benefits Sandstorm will derive, I have the same opinion as Nicholas Campbell who "does not like the implied valuation that SSL is paying to acquire the shares of NSR. That said, he is inclined to give Nolan Watson, President and CEO of SSL, the benefit of the doubt given the track record of his team at SSL."
