Cassels Brock Represents Paladin Energy Ltd. in the $200 Million Prepayment for its Long Term Off-Take Agreement
On August 15, 2012, Paladin Energy Ltd. (“Paladin”) announced that it has signed a landmark 6 year off-take agreement (the “agreement”) with a major utility to deliver a total of 13.73Mlb U3O8 in the period from 2019 to 2024. The contract incorporated a prepayment of US$200 million and its length underscores the operational capability Paladin has attained in the uranium supply sector.

To secure Paladin’s obligation to deliver product representing the prepayment amount, the utility holds security over 60.1% of Paladin’s Michelin project in Canada.
The final security documentation, which finalized the transaction, was registered on September 7, 2012.
