10:43 EDTUSU, BWCUSEC rises after getting added $2.5M funds under DOE agreement
USEC (USU) disclosed in a regulatory filing yesterday that, on June 27, the company entered into an amendment to the agreement dated May 1 with UT-Battelle, as operator of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, for continued research, development and demonstration of the American Centrifuge technology in furtherance of the U.S. Department of Energy’s national security objectives. The amendment amends the ACTDO Agreement to provide for additional funds of approximately $2.5M, bringing total funding to approximately $16M. The other terms and conditions of the ACTDO Agreement were not changed by the amendment. The ACTDO Agreement provides for continued cascade operations, the continuation of core American Centrifuge research and technology activities, and the furnishing of related reports to ORNL. The agreement is a firm fixed price contract with a total price of approximately $33.7M for the period from May 1 to September 30. The agreement provides for payments of approximately $6.7M per month and is incrementally funded. Funds currently allocated to the ACTDO Agreement are expected to cover the work to be performed through July 11. The agreement also provides ORNL with two options to extend the agreement by six months each. Each option is priced at approximately $41.7M. Additionally, on June 27, USEC, together with its direct and indirect subsidiaries American Centrifuge Holdings and American Centrifuge Manufacturing, signed an agreement with The Babcock & Wilcox Company (BWC) to resolve issues related to the expiration and termination of certain agreements in connection with (i) the limited demobilization of certain American Centrifuge project activities, including manufacturing activities, as a result of the reduction of the scope of work on the American Centrifuge project under the ACTDO Agreement; and (ii) the automatic, no-cost transfer of B&W TSG’s ownership interest in ACM to ACH. ACM was established as a jointly owned company between ACH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, and B&W TSG for the purpose of manufacturing and assembling AC100 centrifuge machines. Shares of USEC are up 54% to $4.67 in mid-morning trading.

08:40 EDTUSUUSEC: 99% of votes cast by convertible noteholders favor reorganization plan
Investors holding USEC convertible notes overwhelmingly voted in favor of the Company’s Plan of Reorganization during a month-long voting period that ended August 11. The results of the voting by noteholders were certified by the court-appointed balloting agent to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware today. USEC filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 on March 5. The bankruptcy was a “pre-arranged” filing that included a proposed Plan of Reorganization that was supported by a group of noteholders that owned more than 66% of the value of the notes outstanding. USEC has continued to operate its business as a “debtor-in-possession” under the jurisdiction of the court. Under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, the plan is accepted if approved by at least two-thirds in dollar amount and more than one-half in number of noteholders who have timely and properly voted to accept or reject the plan. According to the voting results certified by Logan & Company Inc., the court-appointed balloting agent for the Company, the Plan of Reorganization was accepted by more than 99% in both value of the notes and the number of votes cast. In addition, both holders of the Company’s preferred equity voted in favor of the plan. The next step in the Chapter 11 process will be a confirmation hearing in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware on September 5, 2014. If the plan is approved by the court, USEC would anticipate emerging from Chapter 11 protection shortly thereafter although, its emergence remains subject to, among other things, satisfaction of all conditions for emergence established under the Plan of Reorganization.
