On March 30, 2018, Lightbridge Corporation (the “Company”) entered into an at-the-market issuance sales agreement (the “sales agreement”) with B. Riley FBR, Inc. (the “Distribution Agent”), to which the Company may issue and sell shares of its common stock from time to time through the Distribution Agent as the Company’s sales agent. Sales of the Company’s common stock through the Distribution Agent, if any, will be made by any method that is deemed to be an “at-the-market” equity offering as defined in Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, to the Company’s effective shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-223674) filed on March 15, 2018 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), the base prospectus filed as part of such registration statement and the prospectus supplement dated March 30, 2018.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the sales agreement, the Distribution Agent will use commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices to sell the Company’s common stock from time to time, based upon the Company’s instructions (including any price, time or size limits the Company may impose to the terms of the sales agreement). The Company is not obligated to make any sales of common stock under the sales agreement and may terminate the sales agreement at any time upon written notice. The Company will pay the Distribution Agent a commission of up to 4.5% of the gross proceeds from each sale. The Company has provided the Distribution Agent with customary indemnification rights.
