InvestorNewsBreaks – Uranium Energy Corp. (NYSE American: UEC) Enters ‘Amending Agreement Acquisition Offer with UEX Corp.

Uranium Energy (NYSE American: UEC), a U.S.-based uranium mining and exploration company, has entered into an amending agreement that stipulates UEC will acquire all issued and outstanding common shares of UEX by way of a statutory plan of arrangement under the Canada Business Corporations Act. The agreement amends the previously announced arrangement agreement between UEX, UEC and the UEC 2022 Acquisition Corp. According to the announcement, more than 38% of eligible UEX securities have already been tendered with 93.4% voting in favor of the UEC transaction. The amending agreement calls for holders of UEX shares to receive 0.0890 of one common share of UEC for each UEX share held, implying consideration of approximately C$0.49 per UEX share based on the closing price of UEX shares and UEC shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the NYSE American Exchange, respectively, as well as the spot exchange rate as of Aug. 5, 2022. The agreement has been unanimously approved by UEX board of directors; the board is recommending to UEX shareholders to vote in favor of the transaction. A vote will be held at a special meeting on Aug. 9, 2022. If the agreement is approved, the arrangement will likely be completed by mid-August, subject to obtaining court approval, stock exchange approval and certain required regulatory approvals, as well as the satisfaction or waiver of other conditions contained in the arrangement agreement. “We are pleased to have come to an agreement with UEX and look forward to completing this transaction following the UEX shareholder vote tomorrow,” said Uranium Energy president and CEO Amir Adnani in the press release. “As mentioned previously, the acquisition is expected to double UEC’s uranium resources at only 14.2% dilution to existing UEC Shareholders. Completion of this transaction will create the largest, diversified North American-focused uranium company with 100% unhedged production. Roger Lemaitre and the UEX team have done a remarkable job assembling and advancing a highly prospective portfolio, and UEC is looking forward to working with their experienced Canadian team to unlock additional value for shareholders.”
