CIC Makes Strategic Investment in Uranium Mining Company

yellowcake_urCurrently, China has 27 nuclear reactors under construction. The Asian giant’s nuclear programme possessed 18 GW of nuclear energy capacity in 2014, determined to hit 58 GW by 2020. The demand from China, India and the Middle East are elevating uranium prices, catching up to pre-Fukushima levels.

Perth-based Paladin Energy Ltd, a Uranium explorer and mining company, has agreed to issue US$ 50 million in senior, unsecured convertible bonds to Leader Investment Corporation, a sovereign wealth enterprise (SWE) of the China Investment Corporation (CIC). These convertible bonds issued to the sovereign wealth fund are on the same terms and conditions from the last US$ 100 million convertible bonds that were issued to clients of JP Morgan.
