Centrus Energy Corp

Centrus Energy Corp. is a trusted supplier of low-enriched uranium (“LEU”) for commercial nuclear power plants. References to “Centrus”, the "Company", or “we” include Centrus Energy Corp. and its wholly owned subsidiaries as well as the predecessor to Centrus unless the context otherwise indicates. LEU is a critical component in the production of nuclear fuel for reactors that produce electricity and we supply LEU to both domestic and international utilities for use in a growing fleet of nuclear reactors worldwide. Centrus is a leader in the development of advanced uranium enrichment technology and is performing research and demonstration work to support U.S. energy and national security.


In 2014, USEC Inc. filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code and on September 30, 2014, the Company emerged from that bankruptcy as Centrus Energy Corp. In 2015, a new management team was assembled to reposition the Company for long-term success with a focus on strategic positioning, expanding sales and business development.

Today, Centrus is a very different company than USEC was three years ago:


Shift in strategic priorities: Due to oversupply in the enrichment market, Centrus does not plan for near term deployment of a commercial scale uranium enrichment facility. However, Centrus is continuing to advance its centrifuge technology, preserving its operating license from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (“NRC”) and plans to deploy a commercial scale enrichment facility over the long term as market conditions recover. We are pursuing strategic relationships that would capitalize on Centrus unique assets, including our NRC license, our operational expertise, and our significant technical capabilities.


Better positioned in the market: Without the large capital and overhead costs of a production facility, Centrus is positioned to obtain supply at a low price from a market that continues to be oversupplied, which will provide an advantage in pursuing sales opportunities.


Technology leader: Centrus expects to retain its core expertise and world leading technical, engineering and manufacturing capabilities in Oak Ridge, Tennessee through our anticipated contract with the operator of ORNL.


Revised supply agreement: In late 2015, the new management team successfully completed a renegotiation of the company’s supply contract with Russia; better matching the agreement to market opportunities and extending the agreement to at least 2026.

Diversified supply base: Centrus new leadership team is focused on expanding and diversifying our supply base to provide additional value to our customers. Over the course of 2015, Centrus entered into new agreements with primary producers of uranium enrichment expanding both our sources of supply and increasing the number of possible delivery locations for enriched uranium. In addition, Centrus acquired additional enrichment supply from the excess inventories of utility operators of nuclear power plants and from other secondary sources of enrichment supply.

Solidifying our position for the long term: Centrus has long-term sales and supply contracts in place that extend well into the next decade, which will provide an extended stream of revenue for many years. This will give the Company flexibility to continue growing as the global enrichment market recovers. In the meantime, we continue to book new sales and take advantage of present market conditions to obtain new low cost supply.

We believe that Centrus’ position as a leading provider of enriched uranium and our long-standing global relationships will enable an increase in future market share for the Company. We are well-positioned to capitalize on our heritage, industry-wide relationships, and diversity of supply to provide reliable and competitive enrichment sourcing. Centrus continues to be valued by our customers as a source of diversity, stability, and competition in the enrichment market. Moreover, our smaller size and lower fixed costs can be advantageous in the current excess capacity market.

Uranium and Enrichment

Uranium is a naturally occurring element and is mined from deposits located in Kazakhstan, Canada, Australia and several other countries. According to the World Nuclear Association, there are adequate measured resources of uranium to fuel nuclear power at current usage rates for about 90 years. In its natural state, uranium is principally comprised of two isotopes: uranium-235 (“U235”) and uranium-238 (“U238”). The concentration of U235 in natural uranium is only 0.711% by weight. Most commercial nuclear power reactors require LEU fuel with a U235 concentration greater than natural uranium and up to 5% by weight. Uranium enrichment is the process by which the concentration of U235 is increased to that level.

LEU consists of two components: separative work units (“SWU”) and uranium. SWU is a standard unit of measurement that represents the effort required to transform a given amount of natural uranium into two components: enriched uranium having a higher percentage of U235 and depleted uranium having a lower percentage of U235. The SWU contained in LEU is calculated using an industry standard formula based on the physics of enrichment. The amount of enrichment deemed to be contained in LEU under this formula is commonly referred to as its SWU component and the quantity of natural uranium used in the production of LEU under this formula is referred to as its uranium or “feed” component.

Historically, we produced or acquired LEU from two principal sources. We produced LEU at the Paducah gaseous diffusion plant ("Paducah GDP") in Paducah, Kentucky that we leased from DOE, and acquired LEU under a contract with Russia under the 20-year Megatons to Megawatts program. Under the Megatons to Megawatts program, we purchased the SWU component of LEU derived from dismantled nuclear weapons from the former Soviet Union for use as fuel in commercial nuclear power plants. We ceased enrichment at the Paducah GDP at the end of May 2013 and repackaged and transferred our existing inventory to off-site licensed locations under agreements with the operators of those facilities.


While in some cases customers purchase both the SWU and uranium components of LEU from us, utility customers typically provide uranium to us as part of their enrichment contracts, and in exchange we deliver LEU to these customers and charge for the SWU component. As of December 31, 2015, we held uranium at licensed locations to which title was held by customers and suppliers with a value of $0.4 billion based on published price indicators. Title to uranium provided by customers generally remains with the customer until delivery of LEU, at which time title to LEU is transferred to the customer and we take title to the uranium.

The following outlines the steps for converting natural uranium into LEU fuel, commonly known as the nuclear fuel cycle:

Mining and Milling. Natural, or unenriched, uranium is removed from the earth in the form of ore and then crushed and concentrated.
Conversion. Uranium concentrates (“U3O8”) are combined with fluorine gas to produce uranium hexafluoride (“UF6”), a solid at room temperature and a gas when heated. UF6 is shipped to an enrichment plant.


Enrichment. UF6 is enriched in a process that increases the concentration of the U235 isotope in the UF6 from its natural state of 0.711% up to 5%, which is usable as a fuel for light water commercial nuclear power reactors.


Fuel Fabrication. LEU is then converted to uranium oxide and formed into small ceramic pellets by fabricators. The pellets are loaded into metal tubes that form fuel assemblies, which are shipped to nuclear power plants.


Nuclear Power Plant. The fuel assemblies are loaded into nuclear reactors to create energy from a controlled chain reaction. Nuclear power plants generate approximately 19% of U.S. electricity and 11% of the world’s electricity.


Used Fuel Storage. After the nuclear fuel has been in a reactor for several years, its efficiency is reduced and the assembly is removed from the reactor’s core. The used fuel is warm and radioactive and is kept in a deep pool of water for several years. Many utilities have elected to then move the used fuel into steel or concrete and steel casks for interim storage.

Centrus Energy Corp: Steady Growth Amidst Revenue Decrease
As an analyst covering the financial sector, I couldn't help but be impressed by Centrus Energy Corp's recent financial results. Although the company experienced a decrease in revenue, their income per share saw a significant boost and their overall bottom-line improved. These positive results are indicative of the company's ability to navigate through challenging market conditions and maintain a strong financial position.
Looking at the numbers, Centrus Energy Corp reported a year-on-year decrease in revenue of -17.67% to $103.90 million for the October to December 31, 2023 span. However, despite this decrease, their income per share soared to $3.36 per share, an increase of 179.29% from the previous year. Comparing it to the prior fiscal period, income per share elevated even further by an impressive 545.57%. Additionally, the company's earnings in the most recent fiscal period increased by 184.34% from the net earnings reported a year ago.
