TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 20, 2014) -


Uranium Participation Corporation ("UPC" or the "Corporation") (TSX:U) announced today that it has received approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") to acquire for cancellation, by way of normal course issuer bid (the "Bid") up to 7,500,000 common shares of the Corporation ("Shares"), which, at the date hereof, represent approximately 7.7% of the public float. As of November 19, 2014, 116,872,913 Shares of the Corporation are outstanding. Daily purchases will be limited to 74,084 Shares, other than block purchase exceptions.

The purchases may commence on November 24, 2014 and will terminate on November 23, 2015 or on such earlier date as UPC completes its purchases. The purpose for the Bid is to provide UPC with a mechanism to decrease the potential spread between the net asset value per Share and the market price of the Shares.

Purchases will be made by the Corporation in accordance with TSX requirements, and the price which the Corporation will pay for any Shares will be the market price of the Shares at the time of acquisition. All purchases will be effected through the facilities of TSX. All purchased Shares will be cancelled.

Since being listed on the TSX in May 2005, the Corporation has purchased an aggregate of 1,209,400 of its outstanding Shares. These purchases were effected through the facilities of the TSX pursuant to a normal course issuer bid during the twelve month period commencing June 14, 2011. All purchased Shares were cancelled. The Corporation did not purchase any Shares pursuant to its most recent normal course issuer bid which was open for the 12 month period ending September 29, 2014.

To the knowledge of the Corporation, no director, senior officer or other insider of the Corporation currently intends to sell any Shares under the Bid. However, sales by such persons through the facilities of TSX may occur if the personal circumstances of any such person change or if any such person makes a decision unrelated to these normal course purchases. The benefits to any such person whose Shares are purchased would be the same as the benefits available to all other holders whose Shares are purchased.

A copy of the Corporation's Notice filed with the TSX may be obtained, by any shareholder without charge, by contacting UPC's Corporate Secretary.
