Yellow Cake PLC Snapshot

Investment Objective and Strategy

Global markets offer limited options for gaining exposure to the uranium price. Yellow Cake is intended to be a uranium focused company without exploration, development, mining or processing risk.

Nuclear energy provides approximately 11% of global energy. However a decade of declining uranium prices has resulted in significantly declining investment in exploration for uranium, impacting the development of new uranium mines, and resulting in projected supply deficits as global production falls below demand. The supply gap that has been created is currently being covered by secondary sources, largely from enrichment providers underfeeding. However, secondary sources are declining and, due to the length of time required to develop new uranium mines, new production may not be sufficient to fill the supply deficit.

Yellow Cake will seek to use its and its adviser’s expertise and market knowledge to generate value through:

1. the purchase, sale and trading of uranium in both the spot market, through the Kazatomprom Contract and through any other long-term contracts entered into by the Company to generate value for shareholders;
2. other uranium related transactions, including the acquisition of production or synthetic production, via streaming, royalties or similar mechanisms.
