Net losses incurred of $96.2 million (2012-$223.5 million) for the year ended February 28, 2013 was primarily due to unrealized losses on investments of $96.0 million (2012-$238.8 million), a result of the decline in U3O8 and UF6 spot prices, offset by an increase in foreign exchange rates in the year.

Management fees of $1.6 million (2012-$1.8 million) and storage fees of $1.6 million (2012-$2.0 million) were incurred, offset by income tax recoveries of $3.0 million (2012-$19.0 million).
