Silex Systems Limited (Silex) is a research and development company whose primary asset is the SILEX laser uranium enrichment technology, originally developed at the Company’s technology facility in Sydney, Australia. The SILEX technology, which has been licensed exclusively since 2006 to GE-Hitachi Global Laser Enrichment LLC (GLE) in the USA, has reached an advanced stage of development. However, in view of the continuing depressed market conditions leading to the Company's 12 June 2018 announcement to withdraw from the GLE restructure, plans for commercial deployment are now highly speculative and extremely uncertain.

Silex also has an interest in a unique semiconductor technology known as ‘cREO™’ through its ownership of subsidiary Translucent Inc. The cREO™ technology has been acquired by IQE Plc based in the UK. IQE is progressing the cREO™ technology towards commercial deployment in various advanced semiconductor products. The outcome of IQE’s commercialisation program remains subject to technology and market risks.

The commercial potential of these two technologies is currently unknown. Accordingly, the statements in this website regarding the future of the SILEX technology, the cREO™ technology and any associated commercial prospects are forward looking and actual results could be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward looking statements as a result of various risk factors.

Risk factors that could affect future results and commercial prospects include, but are not limited to: the final outcome of the GLE restructure; the future of the SILEX uranium enrichment engineering development program (in particular whether this program will be continued in any way); the market demand for natural and enriched uranium; the potential development of competing technologies; the potential for third party claims against the Company’s ownership of Intellectual Property; the potential impact of prevailing laws or government regulations or policies in the USA, Australia or elsewhere; results from IQE's commercialisation program and the demand for cREO™ products; and the outcomes of various strategies undertaken by the Company.
