Uranium Energy (NYSE American: UEC) today announced its entry into a definitive share purchase agreement with Uranium One Investments Inc., a subsidiary of Uranium One Inc. (“Uranium One”), to acquire all issued and outstanding shares of Uranium One Americas Inc. (“U1A”). The agreement comprises a total purchase price of $112 million in cash and the replacement (with corresponding payments to the seller) of $19 million in reclamation bonding (the “acquisition”). Uranium One is the world’s fourth largest uranium producer and part of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation, Rosatom. “We are very pleased that, after a comprehensive and competitive bidding process, Uranium One elected to work with UEC to undertake the successful sale of their substantial uranium assets in the United States. This is a highly accretive transaction for UEC and represents great value to our shareholders,” Amir Adnani, president and CEO of Uranium Energy, said in the news release. “The purchase price is equal to only 12% of our current enterprise value, yet the acquisition doubles the size of our production capacity in three key categories: total number of permitted U.S. ISR projects, resources and processing infrastructure. The opportunity to acquire an advanced asset base of this quality from one of the global leaders in the nuclear energy sector is highly rare in the uranium sector anywhere in the world, let alone in our own home jurisdiction of the United States.”
