ABOUT YELLOW CAKE
Yellow Cake is a London-listed company founded and established by Bacchus Capital and
headquartered in Jersey, which offers exposure to the uranium spot price. This is achieved through
its strategy of buying and holding physical triuranium octoxide (“U3O8”). It may also seek to add
value through the acquisition of uranium royalties and streams or other uranium related activities.
Yellow Cake seeks to generate returns for shareholders through the appreciation of the value of its
holding of U3O8 and its other uranium related activities in a rising uranium price environment. The
business is differentiated from its peers by its ten-year Framework Agreement for the supply of U3O8
with Kazatomprom, the world’s largest uranium producer. Yellow Cake currently holds 9.32 million
lb of U3O8, all of which is held in storage in Canada and France.
