Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, large western utility, referring to Dr. Nesbitt’s use of MarketBuilder for analysis supporting testimony before a southern state’s public service commission for the successful approval of the utility’s proposed merchant gas combined cycle power project.

“When Dale Nesbitt told us boldly that southwest gas would turn backward and flow east, we all had a good laugh at his expense. His prediction was so far from what we had been thinking that it seemed preposterous at the time; it seemed to us it just couldn’t happen. Well, guess what. It happened exactly like he and NARG (North American Regional Gas model from Altos) said it would. He was absolutely right, and I became a believer in NARG.”

Commissioner, California Energy Commission

"This firm produced a model which represents a major advance in telecommunications service pricing. Their work has been of the highest quality. I feel the PPM has provided not only … (our company) … but potentially the entire telephone industry with a valuable pricing tool."
