Uranium Energy Corp Extends Credit Facility to January 31, 2022 and Completes Royalty Sales to Uranium Royalty Corp

– Maturity of existing $20 million Sprott credit facility is extended to January 31, 2022, further strengthens the Company’s working capital position and financial flexibility.
– No principal repayments until maturity.
– Completion of royalty sales creates a new significant ownership stake in Uranium Royalty Corp.

Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC, the “Company” or “UEC” – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298723) is pleased to announce that the Company and its lenders, which include Sprott Resource Lending Partnership, have agreed to extend the Company’s current $20,000,000 senior secured credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) to January 31, 2022 without any principal repayments required until maturity (collectively, the “Credit Facility Extension”).

Amir Adnani, President and CEO, stated, “The Company’s cash position of approximately $24.5 million, the Credit Facility Extension and the royalty sales together evidence UEC’s strong balance sheet heading into 2019.  The Credit Facility Extension allows us to maximize working capital to advance our portfolio of low-cost and production-ready ISR projects in Texas and Wyoming in this critical time for the U.S. uranium industry.   Additionally, the agreement with Uranium Royalty Corp. increases our ownership in this exciting venture to over one-third, adding a long-term asset to our uranium portfolio and balance sheet.”

The interest rate for the Credit Facility remains unchanged at 8%.  In connection with the Credit Facility Extension, the Company has issued a total of 1,180,328 common shares of the Company to the lenders as an extension fee.  As with the Company’s prior Credit Facility, should any principal be outstanding on each of November 30, 2019, 2020 and 2021, an annual fee will continue to be due in cash or stock, at the option of the Company, at the rate of 7%, 6.5% and 6%, respectively, on each such date.

Royalties sale completed

The Company recently closed a royalty purchase agreement with Uranium Royalty Corp. (“URC”). The Company, together with one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, sold a one percent (1%) net smelter return royalty (collectively, the "Royalties") for uranium on UEC’s hard-rock conventional projects, Slick Rock (Colorado), Workman Creek (Arizona) and Anderson (Arizona).  As consideration for the sale of the Royalties, UEC received 12,000,000 common shares of URC representing, along with UEC’s prior interest, over a 34% holding in URC as of this date. URC is a private company with a unique and sole focus on uranium royalty and streaming assets. It is also a large and strategic shareholder in Yellow Cake PLC (AIM: YCA), a holder of physical uranium.

USA TODAY Publishes an Op-Ed Article from Uranium Energy Corp Chairman Spencer Abraham on U.S. Uranium and National Security

Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC, the “Company” or “UEC” – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298360) is pleased to announce USA TODAY published an article on September 20, by UEC Chairman Spencer Abraham titled “Domestic uranium necessary for national security, healthy nuclear energy programs.”  Mr. Abraham is a former U.S. Secretary of Energy and U.S. Senator.

The following is provided with the permission of  USA  TODAY.

USA TODAY
Domestic uranium is necessary for national security, healthy nuclear energy programsSpencer Abraham | Opinion contributor
Published 7:00 a.m. ET Sept. 20, 2018

America used to export uranium, but now it is dependent on other countries. In order to protect ourselves, we need to increase uranium mining.

When I served as Energy secretary under President George W. Bush, our administration was deeply concerned that over 50% of our oil was imported, with much of it coming from unstable places. We considered this a major national security matter.

Today, that national security concern has been solved through a combination of American ingenuity, technology and fully embracing our abundant natural resources. But now, we face a similar national security challenge. The U.S. nuclear fleet, generating 20% of this country’s electricity (and about 60% of our carbon-free energy) has become almost entirely dependent on foreign uranium, much of it from countries with elevated geopolitical risks.

At its peak in 1980, U.S. uranium production stood at 43.7 million pounds, enough to supply all of our U.S. reactors and a substantial portion of our allies’ requirements.

In 2017, U.S. uranium production was less than 2.4 million pounds, accounting for about 5% of the nation’s requirements, even though our uranium reserves are sufficient to meet our domestic demand.

USA TODAY veröffentlicht Op-Ed Artikel von Uranium Energy Corp. Chairman Spencer Abraham über Uran und nationale Sicherheit

Uran Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC, das "Unternehmen" oder "UEC" – http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=298360)  freut sich, dass USA TODAY am 20. September einem Op-Ed  des UEC-Vorsitzenden Spencer Abraham mit dem Titel "Domestic uranium necessary for national security, healthy nuclear energy programs" veröffentlicht hat. Herr Abraham ist ehemaliger US-Energieminister und US-Senator.

In USA TODAY bringt Minister Abraham die Notwendigkeit einer gesunden Uranindustrie der USA, ihre Bedeutung für die nationale Sicherheit und die Risiken zum Ausdruck, denen das Land durch eine übermäßige Abhängigkeit von ausländischem Uran ausgesetzt ist. 

Er lobt auch die gegenwärtige Regierung bei ihren Maßnahmen zur Umsetzung einer konstruktiven Politik, die auf den Wiederaufbau und die Aufrechterhaltung einer lebhaften einheimischen Uran- und Atomindustrie abzielt.

Das Folgende wird mit freundlicher Genehmigung von USA TODAY zur Verfügung gestellt.

USA TODAY

Einheimisches Uran ist notwendig für die nationale Sicherheit, mittels gesicherter Kernenergie-Programme

Spencer Abraham | Meinungsbildner

Veröffentlicht 7:00 Uhr ET 20. Sept. 2018

Früher exportierte Amerika Uran, heute ist es von anderen Ländern abhängig. Um uns zu schützen, müssen wir den Uranabbau verstärken.

Als ich unter Präsident George W. Bush als Energieminister tätig war, war unsere Regierung zutiefst besorgt, dass über 50  % unseres Öls importiert wurden, wobei ein Großteil davon aus instabilen Gebieten kam. Wir betrachteten dies als eine wichtige Angelegenheit der nationalen Sicherheit.

Heute ist dieses nationale Sicherheitsproblem durch eine Kombination aus amerikanischem Einfallsreichtum, Technologie und der vollen Nutzung unserer reichen natürlichen Ressourcen gelöst worden. Aber jetzt stehen wir vor einer ähnlichen nationalen Sicherheitsherausforderung. Die US-Atomflotte, die 20 % der Elektrizität dieses Landes (und etwa 60 % unserer kohlenstofffreien Energie) erzeugt, ist fast vollständig von ausländischem Uran abhängig geworden, ein Großteil davon aus Ländern mit erhöhten geopolitischen Risiken.

Auf dem Höhepunkt im Jahr 1980 lag die Uranproduktion in den USA bei 43,7 Millionen Pfund, genug, um alle unsere US-Reaktoren und einen erheblichen Teil des Bedarfs unserer Verbündeten zu decken.

Im Jahr 2017 betrug die Uranproduktion in den USA weniger als 2,4 Millionen Pfund, was etwa 5% des nationalen Bedarfs entspricht, obwohl unsere Uranreserven ausreichen, um unsere Inlandsnachfrage zu decken.

Uranium Energy Corp Acquires the Diabase Project in the Athabasca Basin and Appoints Darcy Hirsekorn as District Geologist

Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC, the “Company” or “UEC” – https://www.youtube.com/…) is pleased to announce that the Company has closed a definitive Property Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”), with Nuinsco Resources Limited (“Nuinsco”) to acquire 100% of the Diabase project (the “Diabase Project” or “Project”) located on the south rim of the Athabasca Basin uranium district in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Acquisition Highlights
• Total consideration for the acquisition is approximately $500,000 comprised of $240,000 in cash and 164,767 shares (at a deemed issuance price of $1.60 per common share).
• The property has seen in excess of US$ 20 million in historical exploration work, including over 21,000 meters of diamond drilling, geophysical surveying and surficial sampling data.
• The Project delivers a significant land package of 21,949 hectares, which overlies a highly prospective regional corridor within 75 km of Cameco’s Key Lake mill in a stable and leading jurisdiction for uranium exploration and mining.
• Efficient acquisition that preserves balance sheet flexibility in the bottom of the uranium cycle at less than 0.1% dilution to current UEC shareholders.
Clyde Yancey, VP-Exploration, stated: “Our acquisition strategy focuses on low cost, high value projects, the Diabase project is consistent with those objectives and UEC gains an opportunistic foothold in the Athabasca Basin. The project is an excellent addition to our pipeline of exploration properties for future development in a premier uranium district. We are also pleased to welcome Darcy Hirsekorn and his two decades of Athabasca Basin exploration experience to the Company’s geological team.”

Acquisition Details
UEC has now acquired the Diabase Project from Nuinsco for US$ 500,000 in aggregate consideration consisting of approximately: (i) US$ 240,000 in cash paid to Nuinsco and (ii) the issuance of 139,418 common shares to Nuinsco and 25,349 common shares to the original Project property owner.

Diabase Project Overview
The Diabase Project is a large exploration project 75 km west of Cameco’s Key Lake mill on the southern rim of Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin uranium district. The Project covers 21,949 hectares in ten claim blocks. Project work completed to date includes 67 diamond drill holes, regional electromagnetic, magnetic and gravity geophysical surveys, and surficial geochemistry. The Project covers a significant portion of the Cable Bay fault, a highly prospective regional-scale shear corridor.
