Caution About Forward-Looking Information
This website includes forward-looking information and statements within the meaning of applicable Canadian and US securities laws. Actual results and events may be significantly different from what we currently expect. These statements are based on a number of material assumptions, which may prove to be incorrect. We recommend that you review our current annual information form, and our current annual and any subsequent quarterly management's discussion and analysis, for more information about these assumptions and risks. Forward-looking information is designed to help you understand management's current views of our near and longer-term prospects, and it may not be appropriate for other purposes. We will not necessarily update this information unless we are required to by securities laws.
Examples of forward-looking information in this website include: our strategy for responding to market conditions; future annual uranium production, purchases and sales levels; our expectations about future global uranium supply, consumption, demand and the number of reactors; future production levels at our fuel services operations; our expectations regarding future spot prices and our uranium price sensitivity analysis; our expectations regarding our future capital requirements and expenditures; the future outlook for each of our operating segments and our consolidated future outlook; the terms and volumes to be covered by our current and future long-term delivery contracts; the discussion of our expectations relating to our Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) transfer pricing dispute; the discussion of our expectations regarding our dispute with Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc. (TEPCO); future royalty and tax payments and rates; our mineral reserve and resource estimates; and our plans and expectations for uranium properties, projects under evaluation, and fuel services operating sites.
The material risks that could cause actual results to vary include: we are adversely affected by changes in currency exchange rates, interest rates, royalty rates, or tax rates; our production costs are higher than planned, or our cost reduction strategies are unsuccessful, or necessary supplies are not available, or not available on commercially reasonable terms; our estimates of production, purchases, costs, decommissioning, reclamation expenses, or our tax expense prove to be inaccurate; we are unable to enforce our legal rights under our existing agreements, permits or licences; we are subject to litigation or arbitration that has an adverse outcome, including lack of success in our dispute with CRA or with TEPCO; we are unsuccessful in our dispute with CRA and this results in significantly higher cash taxes, interest charges and penalties than the amount of our cumulative tax provision; we are unable to utilize letters of credit to the extent anticipated in our dispute with CRA; there are defects in, or challenges to, title to our properties; our mineral reserve and resource estimates are not reliable, or there are unexpected or challenging geological, hydrological or mining conditions; we are affected by environmental, safety and regulatory risks, including increased regulatory burdens or delays; necessary permits or approvals from government authorities cannot be obtained or maintained; we are affected by political risks; we are affected by terrorism, sabotage, blockades, civil unrest, social or political activism, accident or a deterioration in political support for, or demand for, nuclear energy; we are impacted by changes in the regulation or public perception of the safety of nuclear power plants, which adversely affect the construction of new plants, the relicensing of existing plants and the demand for uranium; government regulations or policies that adversely affect us, including tax and trade laws and policies; our uranium suppliers fail to fulfil delivery commitments or our uranium purchasers fail to fulfil purchase commitments; our development, mining or production plans are delayed or do not succeed for any reason; Joint Venture Inkai LLP’s (JV Inkai) development, mining or production plans are delayed or do not succeed for any reason; our expectations relating to care and maintenance costs prove to be inaccurate; we are affected by natural phenomena, including inclement weather, fire, flood and earthquakes; our operations are disrupted due to problems with our own or our suppliers’ or customers’ facilities, the unavailability of reagents, equipment, operating parts and supplies critical to production, equipment failure, lack of tailings capacity, labour shortages, labour relations issues, strikes or lockouts, underground floods, cave-ins, ground movements, tailings dam failures, transportation disruptions or accidents, unanticipated consequences of our cost reduction strategies, or other development and operating risks; or that closing conditions for an acquisition or a disposition may not be satisfied in a timely manner, or at all.
We have made material assumptions regarding: sales and purchase volumes and prices for uranium and fuel services, trade restrictions and that counterparties to our sales and purchase agreements will honour their commitments; the demand for and supply of uranium; spot prices and realized prices for uranium; the construction of new nuclear power plants and the relicensing of existing nuclear power plants not being more adversely affected than expected by changes in regulation or in the public perception of the safety of nuclear power plants; our ability to continue to supply our products and services in the expected quantities and at the expected times; production levels; costs, including production costs, purchase costs and the success of our cost reduction strategies; tax rates and payments, royalty rates, currency exchange rates and interest rates; the outcome of disputes with CRA and with TEPCO; our ability to utilize letters of credit to the extent anticipated in our dispute with CRA; our decommissioning and reclamation expenses; the reliability of our mineral reserve and resource estimates, including the assumptions upon which they are based; our understanding of the geological, hydrological and other conditions at our uranium properties; the success of our development, mining and production plans; the McClean Lake mill being able to process Cigar Lake ore as expected; the success of JV Inkai’s development, mining and production plans; expected care and maintenance costs; our and our contractors’ ability to comply with current and future environmental, safety and other regulatory requirements, and to obtain and maintain required regulatory approvals; our operations not being significantly disrupted as a result of political instability, nationalization, terrorism, sabotage, blockades, civil unrest, breakdown, natural disasters, governmental or political actions, litigation or arbitration proceedings, the unavailability of reagents, equipment, operating parts and supplies critical to production, labour shortages, labour relations issues, strikes or lockouts, underground floods, cave-ins, ground movements, tailings dam failure, lack of tailings capacity, transportation disruptions or accidents, unanticipated consequences of our cost reduction strategies, or other development or operating risks; and the closing conditions for acquisitions and/or dispositions being satisfied within the expected timeframes.
