VANCOUVER, Oct. 6, 2015 /CNW/ - FCU Oversight is comprised of a growing number of Fission Uranium Corp., shareholders. Those who are thoughtfully and intelligently engaged in the Company's business. FCU Oversight is recommending that you VOTE NO to the proposed transaction announced July 6, 2015 between Fission Uranium Corp. (TSX:FCU) and Denison Mines Corp. (TSX:DML).
Fission Uranium Corp., (FCU) owns Patterson Lake South (PLS) - a significant uranium deposit located in Saskatchewan. PLS by all-accounts is tremendous in scope and grade, and further, is both shallow and open-pittable. Many persons within the industry, along with many analysts covering the sector, consider it the premier undeveloped uranium exploration project in the world.
On July 6th, 2015 FCU issued a Press Release announcing the proposed combination of our company, Fission, with Denison Mines Corp.
FCU OVERSIGHT STRONGLY RECOMMENDS
THAT YOU VOTE AGAINST THE SPECIAL RESOLUTION
For many, reasons, including, in our opinion, the following fundamentals:
- PLS, together with our other assets, are severely undervalued in this transaction, valuing our uranium at approximately $2.00 per pound, when the historical rate has been $8.00 - $10.00 per pound;
- Our Company, as a whole, is severely undervalued. While the initial value on July 3, 2015 of $390 million did not accurately reflect the value of Fission, its value as of October 4, 2015 had fallen to approximately $275 million. Denison has declined even more, from approximately $465 million to $295 million. The exchange ratios now even further penalize Fission shareholders;
- The value that we will receive if this transaction proceeds does not take into account any increase in the value of our assets since the deal was disclosed. This includes no value for the recent preliminary economic assessment (PEA) and the increase in the resource estimates determined since that date;
- The "fairness opinion" that was previously rendered is materially outdated if for no other reason that it fails to take into account the PEA;
- We see no tangible operational synergies, nor do we see any benefit for Fission shareholders. Fission, and PLS in particular, is a pure play on one of the best uranium deposits there is, located in the west end of the Athabasca Basin while Dennison's Athabasca projects are located on the eastern side of the basin and are not considered as robust, or as readily minable. The balance of Dennison's international assets are simply not synergistic to Fission;
- Certain directors and officers of Fission are being paid approximately $1.2 million to transition to executive positions in the new company. Those directors and officers may have interests in the transaction that are, or may be, different from, or in addition to, the interests of other Fission shareholders. Query whether this transaction was accordingly negotiated at arm's length and whether the obvious conflict of interest that these gentlemen find themselves in was properly managed.
VOTE AGAINST TODAY
All proxy votes must be received as instructed in Fission's information circular by 10:00 am Vancouver time on Friday, October 9, 2015 or your vote may not be included.
