Ms. Rachelle Girard reports


Cameco Corp. has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by CIBC Capital Markets and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, pursuant to which the underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal basis, 29,615,000 common shares of Cameco at a price of $21.95 per share, for gross proceeds to the company of approximately $650-million. The common shares will be offered to the public in Canada and the United States. The offering is expected to close on or about Oct. 17, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions, including receipt of all necessary approvals of the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange. Additionally, it has granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 4,442,250 common shares at the offering price, exercisable in whole or in part at any time up to 30 days following the closing of the offering, for potential additional gross proceeds to Cameco of approximately $97.5-million.

Cameco intends to use the aggregate proceeds from the offering, after payment of fees and expenses, to partially finance its share of the acquisition of Westinghouse Electric Company, one of the world's leading nuclear service businesses, through a strategic partnership with Brookfield Renewable Partners, together with Brookfield Renewable's institutional partners.

CIBC Capital Markets and Goldman Sachs & Co. are acting as joint bookrunners for the offering.

The documents filed or to be filed in connection with the offering contain important detailed information about the company and the offering.
