Uranium Energy (NYSE American: UEC), a U.S.-based uranium mining and exploration company, recently announced the close an offering of 10 million shares, resulting in an estimated $30.5 million for the company. According to the announcement, the company plans to use the funds to support its physical uranium purchase initiative as well as for general corporate and working capital requirements. Based on the company’s announcement, H.C. Wainwright & Co. released a target price revision; the report noted a price of $2.65 and a buy rating. “While the company remains focused on developing its low-cost, in-situ recovery (‘ISR’) mining capabilities, management has identified a unique opportunity to purchase drummed uranium at spot prices well below global industry mining costs,” the report stated. “As a result, UEC is establishing a physical uranium inventory initiative based on an initial agreement with ConverDyn in Illinois to acquire 0.4Mlbs of U.S. warehoused uranium for a total cost of $10.9M. We note that ConverDyn is a general partnership between Honeywell (‘HON’; not rated) and General Atomics (private). Management anticipates that this initiative can improve its balance sheet through uranium price appreciation and support future marketing efforts with utilities to accelerate cash flows. Looking ahead, this move should also increase the availability of Texas and Wyoming production capacity for emerging U.S. specific opportunities such as the U.S. Uranium Reserve (UR).”
