Baobab Transfers Western Uranium Corporation Shares

GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT--(Marketwired - June 30, 2017) -

THIS NEWS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OR TO U.S. NEWS AGENCIES

Baobab Asset Management LLC ("Baobab") and Russell Fryer announce the transfer of a total of 1,319,340 common shares of Western Uranium Corporation ("WUC" or the "Company") to six business partners of Baobab. The transfer of these shares (the "Transaction") was completed privately, for a deemed aggregate consideration of approximately CA$1,739,300. The Transaction occurred in the context of Baobab's current reorganization of its investment holdings, which includes, among other things, plans of opening an office outside of North America. In connection with that reorganization, Baobab paid out six USA-based business partners through the transfer of an equity allocation in WUC instead of a cash payment. Most of those USA-based business partners are already long-term shareholders of the Company and have represented themselves to Baobab as continuing stable long-term WUC shareholders. No new control person or insider was created as a result of the Transaction.

Mr. Fryer, a director of the Company, owns and controls Baobab. Immediately prior to the Transaction, Mr. Fryer owned directly and/or controlled (through Baobab) a total of 4,172,275 common shares of the Company, corresponding to approximately 21.31% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company. Immediately after the Transaction, Mr. Fryer owns directly and/or controls (through Baobab) a total of 2,852,935 common shares of the Company, corresponding to approximately 14.57% of the issued and outstanding common shares. Mr. Fryer also holds stock options for further 150,000 common shares of WUC, all exercisable now and within 60 days. If such options are exercised Mr. Fryer would hold and/or control approximately 15.22% of the Company's then issued and outstanding shares.

Baobab is reporting the Transaction as required with the relevant regulatory bodies, and sees this Transaction as a concluding final transaction with respect to monetizing its WUC position. It is the intention of Baobab to not sell additional Western Uranium Corporation shares in the equity market in the foreseeable future.

Baobab will file an Early Warning Report under the Company's profile on SEDAR. The Early Warning Report will include additional information prescribed under National Instrument 62-103 - The Early Warning System and Related Takeover Bid and Insider Reporting Issues. A copy of that Early Warning Report may also be obtained by contacting Mr. Russell Fryer at 1-203-340-5700.

The address of Baobab is: 3 Greenwich Office Park, 1st floor, Greenwich, CT 06831.
