Generally people confuse book value with breakup value. Book value is an accounting concept, breakup value is what you get if you sell all your hard assets and go out of business.
I'm afraid USEC may have a negative breakup value. It is enormously expensive shutting down a major industrial facility like the Paducah plant.
As the song says, "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do"
"Breaking Up Is Hard To Do"
Sell Paducah to Silex.
