Uranium Energy (NYSE American: UEC) together with UEX Corporation (TSX: UEX) today announced the closing of the previously disclosed plan of arrangement under the Canada Business Corporations Act. Under the arrangement, approved at a special meeting of UEX securityholders on Aug. 15, 2022, and subsequently approved by the Supreme Court of British Columbia on Aug. 18, 2022, UEC acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of UEX that it did not already own. Per the terms of the arrangement, UEX shareholders received 0.090 common shares of UEC for each UEX common share held. “We are pleased to have completed our acquisition of UEX. This marks UEC’s second successful highly accretive M&A transaction in the last year, creating the largest diversified North American focused uranium company,” said UEC’s president and CEO Amir Adnani. “We welcome UEX shareholders to UEC and appreciate the vote of confidence in supporting our transaction. The competing interest for UEX from other industry participants further validates the significant upside and strategic rationale we identified in UEX’s portfolio of high-grade projects in the world-class Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan. We look forward to working with our new stakeholders and the joint venture partners, including Cameco, Orano and Denison.”
