Investment Approach

  1. Uranium producers and developers are evaluated based on price-to-intrinsic value methodology, primarily using discounted cash flow modeling;
  2. Exploration companies, for which cash flows are not as predictable or identifiable, will be evaluated using other investment metrics, such as asset-based valuations, industry positioning, quality of assay results, quality of management and joint venture partners; and
  3. Overall objective is to identify those uranium companies that UBS Global Asset Management believes have solid and recognizable competitive strengths that will trigger eventual market recognition of embedded value.

Supply/demand gap is expected to benefit uranium producers, developers and exploration companies as valuable long-term contracts are being negotiated at historically high prices.
