Cameco to Receive Substantial Refund of $300 Million from Canada Revenue Agency

Cameco (TSX: CCO; NYSE: CCJ) announced today that Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has issued revised reassessments for the 2007 through 2013 tax years that will result in the company being refunded a total of approximately $300 million, consisting of $89 million in cash and $211 million in letters of credit, which we previously remitted to the Government of Canada based on prior reassessments CRA had issued in our long-standing tax dispute. Timing of the refund is yet to be determined.

A series of court decisions that were completely and unequivocally in Cameco's favour for the 2003, 2005 and 2006 tax years determined that the income earned by Cameco's foreign subsidiary from the sale of non-Canadian produced uranium was not taxable in Canada. In accordance with these decisions, CRA has issued reassessments reducing the proposed transfer pricing adjustment from $5.12 billion to $3.25 billion, resulting in a reduction of $1.87 billion in income taxable in Canada compared to the previous reassessments issued to Cameco for the 2007 through 2013 tax years. These revisions to income result in the refund of approximately $300 million described above.

Small Modular Reactors Spark Interest as Nuclear Energy and Uranium Gain Stea​m

SMRs vary in size and power, but are essentially smaller-scale versions of traditional nuclear reactors. Although it's still early days, they've been praised by industry insiders for various reasons, including their size and relative simplicity.

During the latest Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, several uranium companies and expert voices highlighted SMRs as a key component of the market moving forward. They also discussed the moment nuclear energy is having in the eyes of investors, and shared their thoughts on what’s needed to move the industry forward.
