Uranium Royalty receives uranium purchase commitments

2023-10-27 09:44 ET - News Release

Mr. Scott Melbye reports


Uranium Royalty Corp. has secured additional fixed-price uranium purchase commitments totalling one million pounds U3O8 (triuranium octoxide) in the current quarter. Deliveries will occur at Cameco Corp.'s Blind River facility in Ontario, Canada, during the fourth quarter of 2023. The weighted average purchase price for such commitments is $70.44 (U.S.) per pound (TradeTech spot price is $73.50 (U.S.) per pound as at Oct. 26, 2023), which is expected to be satisfied through cash on hand and other liquid assets.

The company has received the first delivery of 300,000 pounds U3O8 under its purchase agreement with CGN Global Uranium Ltd. dated Nov. 17, 2021 (see news release dated Dec. 2, 2021). This agreement provides Uranium Royalty with exposure to an aggregate 500,000 pounds U3O8 from 2023 through 2025 at a weighted average price of $47.71 (U.S.) per pound. The delivery of the remaining 200,000 pounds is expected to be completed in June, 2024, and April, 2025.

These purchases will increase Uranium Royalty 's physical uranium inventory to approximately 2.65 million pounds U3O8 at weighted average cost of approximately $54.08 (U.S.) per pound (valued at approximately $195-million (U.S.) at the TradeTech spot price referenced herein).

Scott Melbye, the company's chief executive officer, stated: "In the early stages of this uranium bull market, we recognized an opportunity to grow our physical uranium holdings alongside our royalty business, which includes 20 diversified royalties on 18 projects. These strategic purchases provide shareholders exposure to the strong fundamentals supporting a rising uranium price and a future source of liquidity to acquire additional royalty and streaming assets as opportunities arise."
