Ur-Energy Announces Results of Annual and Special Meeting

 

Denver, Colorado (Marketwire – July 2, 2010) Ur-Energy Inc. (TSX:URE, NYSE Amex:URG)  (“Ur-Energy” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the shareholders of the Company approved all three resolutions before them at the Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders (“Meeting”) held on June 24, 2010 in Littleton, Colorado.  The items of business at the Meeting included the election of Directors, reappointment of auditors of the Company, and the resolution to approve the adoption of the Company’s Restricted Share Unit Plan (“RSU Plan”). 

  • Shareholders elected the following individuals to be Directors to the Board for the upcoming year: W. William Boberg, James Franklin, Jeffrey Klenda, Paul Macdonell, and Thomas Parker. 

 

  • Shareholders approved the reappointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as auditors of the Company until the next annual meeting of shareholders.  PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and its affiliates have been Ur-Energy’s auditors since December 2004.

 

  • Shareholders approved the Ur-Energy Inc. Restricted Share Unit Plan as adopted by the Board of Directors on May 7, 2010.  The RSU Plan is established as a vehicle by which equity-based incentives may be awarded to attract and retain employees, and to recognize and reward their significant contributions to the long-term success of Ur-Energy.  Increased share ownership will also encourage alignment of the employees and directors interests more closely with the shareholders of the Company.  The RSU Plan becomes part of the Company’s existing overall stock-based compensation plan where the maximum number of common shares available for issuance in the aggregate under the RSU Plan and Company’s Option Plan, as amended, is equal to 10% of the number of common shares of the Company issued and outstanding at the time of grant. 

Bill Boberg, President & CEO stated, “The management of Ur-Energy would like to express its heartfelt gratitude to the shareholders of the Company who participated and voted their shares, by proxy, for this year’s Annual and Special Meeting.  Your support is greatly appreciated.  I particularly want to thank the shareholders for overwhelmingly approving the RSU Plan Resolution.  We have put significant effort into building an outstanding team of technical professionals and the RSU Plan provides us with another tool, to be used as part of our existing stock based compensation plan for all employees.  We have issued options to all employees of the Company in the past and now, with the RSU Plan, we will be able to provide an additional means of providing a significant incentive as well as assuring retention of our fine staff.  Thank you, we appreciate the strong showing of support!”
