American Future Fuel Shareholders Approve Arrangement with Premier American Uranium at its Special Meeting

Vancouver, BC, May 28, 2024 – American Future Fuel Corporation (“AMPS” or “American Future Fuel”) (CSE: AMPS, OTCQB: AFFCF, FWB: K14, WKN: A3DQFB) and Premier American Uranium Inc. (“PUR” or “Premier American Uranium”) (TSXV: PUR, OTCQB: PAUIF) are pleased to announce the voting results of the special meeting of shareholders of American Future Fuel held today. Shareholders of AMPS in attendance at the meeting voted in favour of the Plan of Arrangement (the “Arrangement”) involving American Future Fuel and Premier American Uranium by 99.997%.

 

Colin Healey, CEO of PUR commented, “We appreciate the confidence shown by the shareholders of American Future Fuel in our vision. By joining us, they are helping expand our strategic portfolio of high-quality uranium assets in premium U.S. jurisdictions. With the acquisition of the Cebolleta project, PUR will secure prominent positions in New Mexico, Wyoming, and Colorado—three states renowned for their rich uranium mining history.”

 

Mr. Healey added, “As we near the completion of the arrangement, it coincides with a transformative period for the U.S. uranium sector. In less than 90 days, the Prohibiting Russian Uranium Imports Act will take effect, a landmark law passed on May 13th, 2024[1], with overwhelming Congressional bipartisan support[2]. This legislation not only bans the importation of Russian nuclear fuel but also unlocks $2.7 billion in funding to bolster U.S. domestic nuclear fuel production[3]. Through this, and several other initiatives, the U.S. continues to demonstrate its commitment to the pursuit of energy independence and leadership in nuclear energy and technology. Furthermore, this change comes amid the most robust uranium demand-supply fundamentals I’ve witnessed in my career, with a persistent supply shortfall poised to drive uranium prices higher[4]. Premier American Uranium stands at the forefront of this resurgence, offering investors unparalleled leverage to the revitalized U.S. nuclear sector and the promising global market, while being backed by a highly experienced team and supportive strategic shareholders to execute our strategy.”

 

David Suda, CEO and Director of American Future Fuel, commented “I want to thank our shareholders for their overwhelming support for the arrangement with PUR. As we move forward with the imminent closing, I am optimistic for the future and the value we will drive. With the recently completed financing by PUR, the combined company is well funded to advance projects, particularly Cebolleta. This exciting new chapter is a testament to the hard work and dedication of both teams, and I am confident that together, we will achieve great success in the coming weeks and beyond.”

 

Completion of the Arrangement remains subject to receipt of the final order of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, and certain other closing conditions customary in transactions of this nature. The application for the final order of the Supreme Court of British Columbia is scheduled for May 30, 2024. Subject to satisfaction or waiver of these closing conditions, the parties expect to complete the Arrangement prior to the end of the second quarter of 2024.
