An example of recent work is the joint venture investment by French nuclear energy group Areva in Enrichment Technology Company. Areva has agreed to acquire a 50% stake in uranium enrichment company ETC, which will give Areva access to centrifuge technology which is exclusively licensed to ETC and which will allow construction and operation of a new uranium enrichment plant in France. Total deal value is reported at over £2bn. Travers Smith acted for Areva. Key to the transaction is the licensing of intellectual property and transfer of technology.
