The company sees a steady improvement in the market for U3O8, with the spot price increasing from US$22.85 at the time of the IPO in July 2018 to US$25.75 at the end of March 2019.
During the period Yellow Cake booked a profit of US$29.7mln.

“We have been active in the market, acquiring additional uranium on three separate occasions following our admission to the AIM market, taking our total uranium holdings to nearly 10 million pounds, in line with the strategy we set out at the time of our IPO,” said Andre Liebenberg, chief exeutive of Yellow Cake.
“We continue to believe that the uranium market is structurally mis-priced and that prices will continue to rise in the long-term. Despite some continued volatility, market activity has justified our investment proposition, with the spot price increasing by 13% from USD22.85/lb at our IPO to USD25.75/lb at the end of March 2019. We continue to offer investors exposure to the uranium spot price without the operating risks associated with exploration, development and mining, and the market dynamics underpinning our thesis remain robust.”
