Lightbridge Corp was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on February 2, 1999. The Company is a provider of nuclear energy consulting and strategic advisory services and a developer of proprietary nuclear fuel designs, each of which would be described in the following sections. The Company's business operations could be categorized into two segments, a provider of nuclear energy consulting services, and a developer of proprietary nuclear fuel designs. The Company's consulting services aim at providing strategic advice to international commercial and government owned entities in countries with new and growing nuclear energy programs. The Company's nuclear fuel development business involves the development of proprietary thorium-based nuclear fuel designs which it intends ultimately to introduce for sale into three markets: nuclear fuel designs for use in commercial nuclear power plants, nuclear fuel designs for reactor-grade plutonium disposition, and nuclear fuel designs for weapons-grade plutonium disposition. The Company is seeking to provide its consulting services to other commercial or governmental entities. The Company is mainly engaged in the business of assisting commercial and governmental entities with developing and expanding their nuclear industry capabilities and infrastructure. The Company provides integrated strategic advice across a range of expertise areas including nuclear reactor procurement & deployment, reactor & fuel technology, international relations and regulatory affairs. Some of the competitors are AREVA, Westinghouse Electric Company, General Electric. The Company is currently focusing its development efforts on three primary fuel product lines: all-uranium seed and blanket fuel for existing plants; all-metal fuel (i.e., non-oxide fuel) for new build reactors; and thorium-based seed and blanket fuel for both existing and new build reactors. Each of the fuel designs utilizes its metallic fuel rod technology, and each design advances its mission to improve the safety, proliferation resistance, performance, and cost competitiveness of nuclear power generation.
