VANCOUVER, BC, Aug. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Uranium Royalty Corp. (NASDAQ: UROY) (TSXV: URC) ("URC" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has been added to the Global X Uranium ETF as part of the bi-annual index rebalancing. The Global X Uranium ETF is one of the most important uranium and nuclear industry indexes globally.
URC is the only pure-play uranium royalty company. The Company is focused on gaining exposure to uranium prices by making strategic investments in uranium interests, including royalties, streams, debt, and equity investments in uranium companies, as well as through holdings of physical uranium.
URC's CEO, Scott Melbye, said: "The addition of URC to the Global X Uranium ETF is an important recognition of the value and growth potential of our royalty business model and comes at a time at which investors are seeking exposure to green, carbon-free nuclear energy through uranium equities."
"The global mega-trend towards the rapid decarbonization of our energy sector clearly plays into nuclear energy's strengths. Meanwhile, the improving uranium supply and demand fundamentals, driven by strong demand growth and substantial rationalization of global production, should drive a potential recovery of uranium prices in the short-term."
