  • Industry leading growth with two accretive acquisitions of UEX Corporation and Rio Tinto’s world-class, development-stage Roughrider Project.
  • Acquired UEX for $192.7mn primarily in UEC stock which is expected to double total resources in all categories in the world-class, politically stable and uranium mining friendly jurisdiction of Canada, leading to the creation of the largest diversified North American focused uranium company.
  • Welcomed Rio Tinto as a new shareholder with the acquisition of the Roughrider Project for total consideration of $146.2mn comprised of $82.1mn cash and $64.1mn in UEC stock.
  • Expanded physical uranium purchases to date and contracted deliveries to 5.8 million pounds of North American warehoused uranium (“Physical Portfolio”), resulting in an average cost of ~$38 per pound with various delivery dates through December 2025.
  • Generated revenues of $57.2mn from spot market sales of 1,150,000 pounds at a weighted average price of $49.75 per pound, realized gross profit of $13.8mn for the quarter ended 31 Oct 2022.

Amir Adnani, CEO and President stated: “This most recent quarter validates UEC’s growth strategy and our strengths and unique abilities as a pure-play, 100% unhedged uranium supplier. Supported by our strong balance sheet and Physical Portfolio we are advancing a two-pronged approach, combining best in-class: 1) U.S. in-situ recovery (“ISR”) production anchored by two processing plants; and 2) Canadian high-grade conventional development pipeline. The company’s North American warehoused Physical Portfolio is enabling opportunistic and profitable spot market sales and will be a reliable long-term source of supply.”

Acquisition Highlights

The UEX and Roughrider assets are primarily situated in the eastern Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan, Canada. Highlights of the acquisitions include the following:

  • Unlocking Value and Immediate Synergies: Roughrider with the recently acquired UEX projects located in the eastern Athabasca Basin, positions UEC with a critical mass of resources to enhance future production plans.  Near to the development-stage Roughrider Project include UEC’s Raven-Horseshoe, Hidden Bay and Christie Lake Projects.
  • Scaling up in Canada’s High-Grade Athabasca Basin: After Cameco and Orano, UEC now controls the largest diversified resource base, hosted in multiple assets, in Canada’s Athabasca Basin.
  • Infrastructure, Nearby Operations and Long-Standing Uranium History: There are over 20 uranium deposits, four current and historically producing mines, and two uranium mills within a 100km distance from Roughrider, providing excellent infrastructure for future development, including all-weather roads, an all-weather airstrip within seven kms and robust electrical grid access, primarily generated from renewable hydroelectric power sources.(1)
  • World-class Roughrider Project in a Premier Uranium Mining Jurisdiction: Development-stage Roughrider Project has a non-current, historic resource of 58 million pounds at an average grade of 4.73% U3O8 situated in the eastern Athabasca Basin of Canada, where 10% of global uranium production was sourced in 2021. (2)(3)
