Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
The Fireside Chat on June 27, 2022 may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions and are identified by words such as “expects,” “estimates,” “projects,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “could,” “scheduled,” and other similar words. Forward looking statements include, among other things, all statements addressing operating performance, events or developments that Westwater expects will occur in the future, including but not limited to statements relating to: (i) the expected future growth in the demand for graphite, graphite products and vanadium; (ii) the timing or occurrence of the construction and operation of the Kellyton graphite processing plant; (iii) potential benefits from vanadium by-product sales on the Coosa graphite deposit; (iv) the timing or occurrence of any future drilling or production from the Company’s properties or projects, and the anticipated economics and rate of return from the Company’s projects; (v) the adequacy of funding, the Company’s liquidity, and the Company’s anticipated cash burn rate and capital requirements; and (vi) future governmental action to promote the production or price of domestically produced graphite, are forward-looking statements. Because they are forward-looking statements, they should be evaluated in light of important risk factors and uncertainties. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include, among others: (a) the spot price and long term contract price of graphite (both flake graphite feedstock and purified graphite products) and vanadium, and the world-wide supply and demand of graphite and vanadium; (b) the effects, extent and timing of the entry of additional competition in the markets in which we operate; (c) the ability to obtain contracts with customers; (d) available sources and transportation of graphite feedstock; (e) the ability to control costs and avoid cost and schedule overruns during the development, construction and operation of the Kellyton graphite processing plant; (f) the ability to construct and operate the Kellyton graphite processing plant in accordance with the requirements of permits and licenses and the requirements of tax credits and other incentives; (g) government regulation of the mining and manufacturing industries in the United States; (h) unanticipated geological, processing, regulatory and legal or other problems we may encounter; (i) the results of our exploration activities, and the possibility that future exploration results may be materially less promising than initial exploration results; (j) any graphite or vanadium discoveries not being in high enough concentration to make it economic to extract the metals; (k) our ability to finance growth plans; (l) the potential effects of the continued COVID-19 pandemic; (m) currently pending or new litigation or arbitration; and (n) our ability to maintain and timely receive mining, manufacturing, and other permits from regulatory agencies and (o) other factors which are more fully described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and other filings with the SEC.
