Attention: Corporate Actions
- What documentation is required in order to exercise my Warrants?
1. Original warrant certificate with the Subscription Form on the back filled out completely; and
2. Payment to the AST Corporate Actions Department.
*Certified cheques should be made payable to AST TRUST COMPANY (CANADA).
In addition, if the Warrants are held in the name of a corporate/business entity rather than an individual:
3. A corporate resolution from the entity designating an authorized official to sign on its behalf; and
*Must submit an original, dated within the last six (6) months
*Subscription Form must be signed exactly as authorized in the resolution
4. If the entity has a single director, either a medallion stamp affixed to the Subscription Form or a notary stamp at the bottom of the corporate resolution.
- May I wire funds to AST to cover the cost of my exercise rather than by way of a certified cheque?
Yes. Please contact the Company for the relevant wiring instructions.
- Where may I direct questions about my Warrants or the status of a previously submitted exercise?
Questions should be directed to AST at 1-800-387-0825 (in North America) or (416) 682-3860 (outside North America) or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
- How long will it take to receive my Common Shares following an exercise of Warrants?
As a part of a warrant holder's exercise process, AST's Corporate Actions Department sends a requisition to the U.S. Warrant Agent to issue the Common Shares, and simultaneously sends the exercise funds to Energy Fuels as compensation so that the Common Shares are fully paid and non-assessable as of the issuance date. Receipt of such requisition, confirmation of the Company's receipt of funds, and the resulting Common Share issuance typically takes up to 2-3 weeks in total. However, this timeframe is provided for reference only and in no way represents a commitment or obligation of Energy Fuels, AST or the U.S. Warrant Agent.
- Can I exercise my Warrants electronically?
No, there is no way to do so.
- Can I exercise my Warrants directly through Energy Fuels rather than sending my exercise and payment to AST?
No, all documentation must go through AST and in accordance with the terms of the Indenture.
- Is there a process at AST to expedite my exercise?
No, there is no way to do so. Exercises are processed in the order in which they are received, and a significant number of exercises are currently being processed and are expected to come in prior to the Time of Expiry.
- Are the Common Shares that result from my exercise of Warrants free-trading?
- Do the Warrants use an American-style exercise (i.e., can they be exercised at any time at the warrant holder's option)?
Yes, up to the Time of Expiry, except as limited by Article 4.9(b) of the Indenture (setting a Beneficial Ownership Limitation of 4.99%).
The above responses are meant to provide general clarification only. It remains the sole obligation of the warrant holder to ensure that all relevant terms in the Indenture are followed in exercising any Warrants held.
As noted, above, any Warrants not exercised prior to 5:00 p.m. Toronto time on September 20, 2021, will expire and become void, and the holder will no longer be able to exercise such voided Warrants.
