"As the leading conventional uranium producer in the United States, currently accounting for over 25% of all domestic uranium production, we view our new NYSE MKT listing as an important step toward increasing the visibility of Energy Fuels in the United States, gaining access to a larger pool of institutional and retail investors, and improving the overall trading liquidity of our common shares," stated Stephen P. Antony, President and CEO of Energy Fuels. "The United States is the world's largest nuclear energy market, yet it is heavily dependent on imported uranium to fuel its nuclear reactors. I believe our new listing on the NYSE MKT will highlight Energy Fuels' position as a strategic domestic supplier of uranium that also offers an unmatched organic production growth potential, as market conditions warrant over time. For these reasons, I am optimistic that Energy Fuels will be viewed as an attractive option for investors who want exposure to the expected worldwide growth in nuclear energy and the higher uranium prices which are expected to result."
