We sell uranium and fuel services directly to nuclear utilities around the world, as uranium concentrates, UO2, UF6, conversion services or fuel fabrication. Utility companies buy the majority of their uranium and fuel services products under long-term contracts with suppliers and meet the rest of their needs on the spot market.
We are also active in the spot market, buying and selling uranium where it is beneficial for us. Our activity in the spot market takes prudent consideration of the spot price and other business factors. This activity gives us insight into the underlying market fundamentals and is a source of profit.
The purpose of our marketing framework is to deliver value. Our approach is to secure a solid base of earnings and cash flow by maintaining a balanced contract portfolio that optimizes our realized price.
