InvestorBrandNetwork (“IBN”), a multifaceted communications organization engaged in connecting public companies to the investment community, is pleased to announce the release of the latest episode of The Bell2Bell Podcast as part of its sustained effort to provide specialized content distribution via widespread syndication channels.
The Bell2Bell Podcast delivers informative updates and exclusive interviews with executives operating in fast-moving industries. Bell2Bell’s latest podcast features the return of Amir Adnani, President and CEO of Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC), a U.S.-based uranium mining and exploration company. Under his guidance, Uranium Energy advanced from concept to U.S. production in its first five years of operation. The company has since developed an extensive pipeline of low-cost, near-term production projects and recently put into place a physical uranium holding initiative.
During the interview, Adnani provided an update on Uranium Energy’s recent news and milestones since his last appearance on The Bell2Bell Podcast, in early February.
“We’ve really strengthened our balance sheet. We now, as of our latest announcement, have close to $95 million in cash and equity holdings, including approximately $61 million in cash,” he said. “The other plan that UEC has announced, which is really transformative, is that we have established a physical uranium holding initiative. This has really both resonated with the market and, in my opinion, is just sound business for us.”
On March 16, 2021, Uranium Energy announced the formation of a physical uranium inventory initiative, with agreements to purchase 400,000 pounds of U.S. warehoused uranium. UEC expanded this program to 1.4 million pounds of U.S. warehoused uranium by announcing further purchases and a completed financing on March 22, 2021.
“We are, as a company, focused entirely on developing low-cost in-situ recovery uranium projects in the U.S., but we’re looking at a spot uranium price that, after a decade of being in a bear market, is starting to recover,” he continued. “We’re seeing great positive signs, but the spot uranium price – in and around $30 per pound – is still lower than the prevailing mining cost for most industry players anywhere in the world. We saw a unique opportunity to come out and acquire physical uranium that can be warehoused right here in the U.S. and will give the company a balance sheet asset that, as the uranium price goes up, can appreciate.”
On March 22, 2021, the company announced the closing of an aggregate offering of 10 million shares of common stock at a purchase price of $3.05 per share for gross proceeds of $30.5 million in a registered direct offering. Uranium Energy intends to use the net proceeds of the offering for additional uranium purchases relating to its physical uranium holding initiative, as well as for general corporate and working capital purposes.
“This physical initiative is fully funded,” Adnani added. “It gives us great flexibility when we’re marketing to utilities or if we’re talking to the U.S. government, about their plans to purchase physical uranium. We’ll have both, our projects, which we plan to produce uranium from, and we will have our strategic inventory holdings that will be available to the company as well.”
