Background to the Variation

On 7 May 2020, Yellow Cake announced the grant of new long-term Incentive Options to the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer relating to the 2019 financial year.

On 9 December 2020, the Initial Incentive Options and the Additional Incentive Options were varied with effect from the relevant date of grant, such that: (i) the exercise price of the Initial Incentive Options was increased to 213 pence per share (being the net asset value per share of the Company on 24 February 2020); (ii) the exercise price of the Additional Incentive Options was increased to 288 pence per share (being the net asset value per share of the Company on 8 July 2020); and (iii) the exercise of each of the Initial Incentive Options and the Additional Incentive Options is now conditional upon the share price as at the exercise date being equal to or greater than the net asset value per share of the Company as at the date of grant.

ABOUT YELLOW CAKE

Yellow Cake is a London-listed company, headquartered in Jersey, which offers exposure to the uranium spot price. This is achieved through its strategy of buying and holding physical triuranium octoxide ("U3O8"). It may also seek to add value through the acquisition of uranium royalties and streams or other uranium related activities. Yellow Cake seeks to generate returns for shareholders through the appreciation of the value of its holding of U3O8 and its other uranium related activities in a rising uranium price environment. The business is differentiated from its peers by its lower cost base and ten-year Framework Agreement for the supply of U3O8 with Kazatomprom, the world's largest uranium producer. Yellow Cake currently holds 9.32 million lb of U3O8, all of which is held in storage in Canada and France.

 

 

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements contained herein are forward looking statements and are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about the potential returns of the Company and the industry and markets in which the Company will operate, the Directors' beliefs and assumptions made by the Directors. Words such as "expects", "anticipates", "should", "intends", "plans", "believes", "seeks", "estimates", "projects", "pipeline", "aims", "may", "targets", "would", "could" and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward looking statements and expectations.

Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed in such forward looking statements or expectations. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are: uranium price volatility, difficulty in sourcing opportunities to buy or sell U3O8, foreign exchange rates, changes in political and economic conditions, competition from other energy sources, nuclear accident, loss of key personnel or termination of the services agreement with 308 Services Limited, changes in the legal or regulatory environment, insolvency of counterparties to the Company's material contracts or breach of such material contracts by such counterparties. These forward-looking statements speak only as at the date of this announcement. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to disseminate any updates or revisions to any forward looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in the Company's expectations with regard thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statements are based unless required to do so by applicable law or the AIM Rules.
