Uranium Energy Corp Confirms Intention to Acquire UEX Corporation

NYSE American: UEC

More than 38% of eligible UEX securities have already been tendered, as of this press release, with an overwhelming 93.7% voting in favour of the UEC transaction.

UEC offer of C$0.49 per UEX share is financially superior to the Acquisition Proposal submitted by Denison.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, Aug. 5, 2022 /CNW/ - Uranium Energy Corp. (NYSE American: UEC) (the "Company" or "UEC") announces that, further to its news release of July 28, 2022, it has advised UEX Corporation ("UEX") that it is submitting a superior offer to the acquisition proposal made by Denison Mines Corp. ("Denison") on July 28, 2022 (the "Denison Proposal") for all of the issued and outstanding shares of UEX ("UEX Shares").

Under the terms of UEC's revised offer (the "Revised UEC Offer"), each holder of UEX Shares will now receive 0.0890 of one common share of UEC (a "UEC Share") 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, and the spot exchange rate as of August 5, 2022.  The Revised UEC Offer also increases the break fee by 7%, which is an increase proportional to the percentage increase in the offered exchange ratio under the Revised UEC Offer.

Amir Adnani, President and CEO, stated: "After careful analysis and consideration, we firmly believe the Revised UEC Offer represents a value-creating opportunity for UEC and UEX shareholders. We remain disciplined with respect to pursuing accretive growth and the Revised UEC Offer strikes a balance of a modest increase in the exchange ratio while doubling UEC's uranium resources1 at only a 14.2% dilution to our outstanding shares. This transaction highlights UEC's sector leading strategy as the fastest growing, pure play, 100% unhedged uranium company and will create the largest, diversified North American focused uranium company. Finally, a true testament to the win-win industrial logic of the transaction is the overwhelming positive support for our deal, as evidenced with over 38% of eligible UEX securities tendered with over 93.7% voted in favor, and the positive share price performance for UEC.  With an offer that is superior to the Denison Proposal in all respects, we look forward to completing this transaction following the UEX shareholder vote next week."

If the board of directors of UEX (the "UEX Board") accepts the Revised UEC Offer, UEC expects that the special meeting of UEX securityholders to approve UEC's acquisition of the UEX Shares based on the Revised UEC Offer will continue to be held as currently scheduled on Tuesday August 9, 2022, with an anticipated closing date (subject to court approval and the satisfaction or waiver of closing conditions customary for a transaction of this nature) by mid-August.

The Revised UEC Offer is superior to the Denison Proposal in all respects:

  • Superior Financial Consideration. The Revised UEC Offer values UEX at C$0.49 per UEX Share, a 7% improvement over the original exchange ratio and higher financial consideration than the Denison Proposal based on closing prices of the shares and the spot exchange rate as at August 5, 2022. The Revised UEC Offer reflects a premium of 72% over the unaffected UEX Share price on June 10, 2022 (being the last trading day prior to the announcement of UEC's proposed acquisition of UEX).

  • Stronger Deal Certainty. As part of its Revised UEC Offer submission to the UEX Board, UEC has provided UEX with a simple amending agreement to the original arrangement agreement dated June 13, 2022, as amended June 23, 2022, among UEX, UEC and UEC 2022 Acquisition Corp. (the "Arrangement Agreement") to reflect the Revised UEC Offer. By its own admission, Denison has characterized its proposal as "non-binding" and "remains subject to the entering into of a definitive agreement"2. Upon acceptance of the Revised UEC Offer by UEX, UEC will be firmly bound to complete the Revised UEC Offer as soon as practicable.

  • Quicker Path to Completion. UEX securityholders are scheduled to vote on UEC's proposed acquisition of the UEX Shares based on the Revised UEC Offer on Tuesday August 9, 2022, with closing of the transaction (subject to court approval and the satisfaction or waiver of closing conditions customary for a transaction of this nature) anticipated within days of the UEX securityholder vote. UEC understands that more than 38% of eligible UEX securities have already tendered, as of this press release, with an overwhelming 93.7% voting in favour of the UEC transaction.

  • Denison Proposal is Financially Inferior, Uncertain and Remains Subject to the Negotiation of a Definitive Agreement. The Denison Proposal remains subject to, among other things, the negotiation of a definitive agreement, the preparation of an information circular providing disclosure on the proposed transaction, court and regulatory approvals, and the calling of a new securityholders meeting to approve the transaction. As such, a closing of any deal with Denison is likely to take UEX shareholders well into Q4 2022.

  • Larger Trading Liquidity. UEC benefits from a strong institutional and retail following which has resulted in trading liquidity that is more than 50%3 greater than that of Denison. UEX shareholders, upon exchange of their UEX Shares for UEC Shares based on the Revised UEC Offer, will have a deeper pool to value and trade their securities.

  • UEC Maintains its Strong Balance Sheet With Over $180 million of Cash and Liquid Assets, with No Debt.

  • The Opportunity to Create the Largest Diversified North American Focused Uranium Company. UEX shareholders have an opportunity to be part of UEC's fully permitted, production-ready assets in the U.S., which is the largest market in the world for uranium demand. UEC offers superior scale, as exhibited by its larger capital markets presence, and a path for immediate re-rating potential following a rapid timeline to closing of the transaction.

It is the view of UEC, based on advice provided by its financial and legal advisors, that the superior proposal notice delivered by UEX to UEC on July 28, 2022 was deficient in several respects. These deficiencies have been communicated to UEX over the past few days, and have not, in our view, been rectified. While we have elected to increase the consideration offered in our proposed transaction, in making the Revised UEC Offer we advised UEX we were reserving all rights to require UEX to comply with the right to match provisions in the Arrangement Agreement, including, among other things, that the right to match period has not yet commenced.

The Revised UEC Offer expires at 7:00 p.m. (Vancouver time) on the date of this press release, coinciding with the termination of the right to match period under the Arrangement Agreement. Upon a determination by the UEX Board that the Revised UEC Offer is at least equivalent to the Denison Proposal, UEX is required to enter into an amending agreement to the Arrangement Agreement to reflect the Revised UEC Offer.
