L1 Long Short Fund stated the following regarding NexGen Energy Ltd. (NYSE:NXE) in its first quarter 2024 investor letter:

"NexGen Energy Ltd. (NYSE:NXE) (Long +11%) performed well as uranium prices reached 15-year highs during the quarter, due to structural demand tailwinds and as the world’s largest producer, Kazatomprom (~20% global supply), downgraded its 2024 production expectations. We continue to see the uranium market as having positive fundamental supply/demand tailwinds over the medium to long term. NexGen is preparing to develop the world’s largest undeveloped uranium deposit, Arrow, located in Saskatchewan, Canada. This would be a major, new, strategic Western source to address the anticipated uranium market deficit. We anticipate that NexGen will have completed all regulatory requirements over the course of 2024, providing a clear pathway to full scale construction of the project. At the uranium prices reached during the March quarter, Arrow has the potential to generate more than C$2b of cash flow annually, once developed (2028) – a highly attractive proposition given NexGen’s market cap of ~C$5.8b. We made the majority of our investment in NexGen when it had a market cap of around C$2b."
