Uranium Energy Corp. (NYSE American: UEC) (“UEC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, due to increased demand, its underwriters have now agreed to purchase 12,500,000 units of the Company (the “Units”), at a price of $1.20 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of one common share of the Company (each, a “Share”) and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”) for gross proceeds of approximately $15 million (the “Offering”).  Each Warrant will entitle its holder to acquire one common share (each, a “Warrant Share”) at an exercise price of $1.80 per Warrant Share exercisable immediately upon issuance and expiring 24 months from the closing of the Offering.
The Company anticipates that the net proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund exploration and development expenditures at the Company’s projects and for general corporate and working capital purposes.
Amir Adnani, President and CEO, stated: “We are pleased with the substantial level of interest for this Offering and appreciate the strong endorsement from our existing and new shareholders.  UEC’s fully permitted, low cost, In-Situ-Recovery (“ISR”) portfolio provides for a distinct advantage to supply U.S. production that is globally competitive.  The improved uranium market conditions we’ve witnessed in 2020, with uranium prices reaching a four-year high, bodes well for the future of our ISR project pipeline.  This over-subscribed financing improves our balance sheet as we advance our strategic objectives and production capabilities in Texas and Wyoming.”
The closing of the Offering is expected to occur on September 23, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.
H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC and Haywood Securities Inc. are acting as joint book-running managers in connection with the Offering and TD Securities Inc., Eight Capital and Roth Capital Partners, LLC are acting as co-managers.
