Annual Report - 2010
With growing global demand for energy, Cameco continues to build toward our vision of being a dominant nuclear energy company – as a supplier, partner, investment and employer of choice in the nuclear industry.
The focus of our growth strategy continues to be on our uranium segment. With the significant increase in nuclear reactor construction around the world, utilities and countries are building up their strategic inventories. In 2010, this resulted in increased long-term contracting and drove uranium spot prices significantly higher.
Our extraordinary assets, contract portfolio, employee expertise and comprehensive industry knowledge give us the ability to capitalize on any increase in uranium demand and prices, increasing shareholder value.
At the same time, we are managing our fuel services segment to better service our customers and expand our market share.
We plan to use the cash we have available to sustain and increase our production from existing assets. We will consider other uranium production opportunities as they arise.
