Cameco (TSX:CCO) (NYSE:CCJ) announced today that it will end its toll-conversion agreement with Springfields Fuels Ltd. (SFL) effective December 31, 2014.
In 2005, Cameco signed a 10-year toll-conversion agreement to process up to 5 million kilograms of uranium annually at the Springfields conversion facility in Lancashire, United Kingdom. The Springfields facility receives uranium trioxide (UO3) from Cameco's Blind River uranium refinery and converts it to uranium hexafluoride (UF6), which is required to produce fuel for light water reactors. Cameco delivers the UF6 to its own customers around the world.
The toll-conversion agreement was set to expire in 2016. Cameco has agreed to pay $18 million to SFL to permit early termination of the agreement. Production for Cameco at the Springfields facility will cease by August 31, 2014. Cameco expects to receive a maximum of 3,731 tonnes of uranium as UF6 from Springfields in 2014.
"With the current weak market for UF6 conversion we can meet our customer requirements from our Port Hope conversion facility and benefit from better utilization of existing assets," said Tim Gitzel, Cameco's president and CEO.
Cameco is one of the world's largest uranium producers, a significant supplier of conversion services and one of two CANDU fuel manufacturers in Canada. Our competitive position is based on our controlling ownership of the world's largest high-grade reserves and low-cost operations. Our uranium products are used to generate clean electricity in nuclear power plants around the world. We also explore for uranium in the Americas, Australia and Asia. Our shares trade on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges. Our head office is in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.
