U.S. Concrete Announces 2015 Second Quarter Results

EULESS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/15 --

Second Quarter 2015 Highlights Compared to Second Quarter 2014

U.S. Concrete, Inc. (NASDAQ: USCR), a leading producer of construction materials in select major markets across the United States, today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015. In the second quarter of 2015, Adjusted EBITDA increased to $33.7 million, compared to $22.4 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percentage of revenue improved to 13.8%, compared to 12.4% in the prior year quarter.

William J. Sandbrook, President and Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Concrete, stated, "We are pleased with the strong improvement in our profits during the second quarter, in which we met or exceeded expectations across nearly all of our key metrics. We achieved another quarter of steady price gains while also benefiting from improved underlying volume trends in our markets, despite weather related impacts in Texas. The significant increase in consolidated revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and earnings per share is a direct result of the steps we have taken to further solidify our leadership positions within our core markets through accretive acquisitions. During the quarter we completed three highly strategic acquisitions which significantly strengthened our existing operations in the greater New York and Washington D.C areas and we are already making meaningful progress on integrating these newly added assets. In June, we sold the remaining assets of our precast operations, which was highly aligned with our strategic direction to continue expanding our Company into our attractive heavy material categories. Into the back half of 2015, we are encouraged by our healthy backlog of activity across our well-structured markets to continue growing our business and enhancing our returns."

SECOND QUARTER 2015 RESULTS COMPARED TO SECOND QUARTER 2014
Consolidated revenue increased 35.7% to $244.7 million, compared to $180.4 million in the prior year quarter. Revenue from the ready-mixed concrete segment increased $54.8 million, or 33.4%, driven by both volume and pricing. The Company's ready-mixed concrete sales volume was 1.8 million cubic yards, up 18.8%. Ready-mixed concrete average sales price per cubic yard increased $12.97, or 11.8%, to $123.24 compared to $110.27. Ready-mixed backlog at the end of the quarter was approximately 6.5 million cubic yards, up 51.9% compared to the end of the prior year quarter. Aggregate products segment revenue increased $2.5 million, or 19.1%, to $15.6 million compared to the prior year quarter.

Consolidated gross profit increased $17.4 million to $52.4 million with a 200 basis point expansion in gross margin to 21.4% compared to the prior year quarter. Ready-mixed raw material spread margin improved by 280 basis points. Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were $22.2 million compared to $14.4 million in the prior year quarter. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses were 9.1%, compared to 8.0% in the prior year. Excluding non-cash stock compensation, acquisition related professional fees, and officer severance, SG&A was 7.9% of revenue compared to 7.3% in the prior year quarter, with the increase mainly attributable to higher personnel costs to support sustained growth.

Consolidated adjusted EBITDA of $33.7 million increased $11.3 million, with a 140 basis point expansion in margin compared to the prior year quarter. Ready-mixed concrete adjusted EBITDA of $33.6 million increased 44.6%, with a 120 basis point expansion in margin. Aggregate products adjusted EBITDA increased 16.1% to $3.8 million.

Adjusted net income was $19.9 million, or $1.31 per diluted share, compared to $10.9 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. Adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2015 excludes non-core items such as an $8.0 million non-cash loss related to derivatives attributable to the fair value changes in the Company's warrants. This compares to a non-cash loss of $1.7 million during the second quarter of 2014. These non-cash losses were due to the increase in the price of the Company's stock during the second quarters of 2015 and 2014. Including the impact of the derivative loss as well as non-cash stock compensation, acquisition-related professional fees and officer severance, net income was $9.7 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, compared to net income of $7.9 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2014.

The Company's free cash flow in the second quarter of 2015 was $30.9 million, compared to $(1.3) million in the prior year quarter, with the improvement mainly due to higher cash provided by operations and less cash needed to fund working capital in the current year quarter. Cash provided by operating activities in the second quarter of 2015 was $34.5 million compared to cash provided by operations in the prior year quarter of $8.2 million.

At June 30, 2015, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $15.0 million and total debt of $280.5 million, resulting in net debt of $265.5 million. The net debt increased by $75.3 million from December 31, 2014, largely as a result of draws under our revolving credit facility used to fund acquisitions completed since the beginning of 2015, as well as financing of additional mixer trucks and mobile equipment.

ACQUISITIONS AND DISPOSITIONS
In April 2015, the Company acquired Ferrara Bros. Building Materials Corp. ("Ferrara Bros."), in New York, N.Y. Ferrara Bros. operates six ready-mixed concrete batch plants from four well-situated locations in New York and New Jersey, and has a fleet of 89 mixer trucks. This acquisition significantly expanded U.S. Concrete's footprint in the New York metropolitan market and further positions the Company to serve additional construction projects in Manhattan.

In May 2015, the Company acquired Colonial Concrete Company ("Colonial"), in Newark, N.J. Colonial has an established and respected market presence in New Jersey with over 35 years of operating experience serving the commercial and residential end markets through its four ready-mixed concrete batch plants and fleet of approximately 40 mixer trucks.

In May 2015, the Company acquired DuBrook Concrete, Inc. located in Chantilly, VA., which significantly expanded the Company's service footprint in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area with the addition of three ready-mixed concrete batch plants and a fleet of 42 mixer trucks.

In June 2015, the Company completed the sale of the remaining assets of the U.S. Concrete Precast Group, which consisted of an architectural precast plant operating in Middleburg, PA. The transaction represented the final divestiture of the Company's formerly owned assets relating to precast concrete operations.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This press release uses the non-GAAP financial measures "adjusted EBITDA," "adjusted net income (loss)," "adjusted EBITDA margin," "free cash flow" and "net debt." The Company has included adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin in this press release because it is widely used by investors for valuation and comparing the Company's financial performance with the performance of other building material companies. The Company also uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin to monitor and compare the financial performance of its operations. Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to the cash the Company must use to service its debt or pay its income taxes, and thus does not reflect the funds actually available for capital expenditures. In addition, the Company's presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures that other companies report. The Company considers free cash flow to be an important indicator of its ability to service debt and generate cash for acquisitions and other strategic investments. The Company believes that net debt is useful to investors as a measure of its financial position. The Company presents adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per share to provide more consistent information for investors to use when comparing operating results for the second quarter of 2015 to the second quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's reported operating results or cash flow from operations or any other measure of performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. See the attached "Selected Reportable Operating and Financial Information" for reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and 2014.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This press release contains various forward-looking statements and information that are based on management's belief, as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to management. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this press release. The Company disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements after the date they are made, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by federal securities laws, and cautions you not to rely unduly on them. Forward-looking information includes, but is not limited to, statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, projections, strategies, future events or performance, and underlying assumptions and other statements, which are not statements of historical facts. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "will," "should," "expect," "plan," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "predict," "potential" or "continue," the negative of such terms or other comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements, which are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us, may include projections of our future financial performance, our anticipated growth strategies and anticipated trends in our business. These statements are predictions based on our current expectations and projects about future events. Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that those expectations will prove to have been correct. Such forward-looking statements, by their nature, are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including, among other matters: general and regional economic conditions, which will, among other things, affect demand for new residential and commercial construction; our ability to successfully identify, manage and integrate acquisitions; the cyclical nature of, and changes in, the real estate and construction markets, including pricing changes of our competitors; governmental requirements and initiatives, including those related to mortgage lending or mortgage financing, funding for public or infrastructure construction, land usage and environmental, health and safety matters; disruptions, uncertainties or volatility in the credit markets that may limit our, our suppliers' and our customers' access to capital; our ability to successfully implement our operating strategy; weather conditions; our substantial indebtedness and the restrictions imposed on us by the terms of our indebtedness; our ability to maintain favorable relationships with third parties who supply us with equipment and essential supplies; our ability to retain key personnel and maintain satisfactory labor relations; and product liability, property damage and other claims and insurance coverage issues. Should one or more of these risks materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results or outcomes may vary materially from those expected. These risks, as well as others, are discussed in greater detail in U.S. Concrete's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including U.S. Concrete's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 and subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.

U.S. CONCRETE, INC.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(Unaudited)

We report our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). However, our management believes that certain non-GAAP performance measures and ratios, which our management uses in managing our business, may provide users of this financial information additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. See the table below for (1) presentations of our adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and Free Cash Flow for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, and Net Debt as of June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014 and (2) corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 and as of June 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014. We have also provided below (1) the impact of non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative losses, acquisition related professional fees, officer severance, non-cash gain on revaluation of contingent consideration on net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share and (2) corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and 2014. We have also shown below certain ready-mixed concrete and aggregate products statistics for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and 2014.

We define adjusted EBITDA as our net income (loss) from continuing operations, plus the provision (benefit) for income taxes, net interest expense, depreciation, depletion and amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative (gain) loss, gain (loss) on revaluation of contingent consideration, gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, acquisition-related professional fees, and officer severance. We define adjusted EBITDA margin as the amount determined by dividing adjusted EBITDA by total revenue. We have included adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin in the accompanying tables because they are widely used by investors for valuation and comparing our financial performance with the performance of other building material companies. We also use adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin to monitor and compare the financial performance of our operations. Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to the cash we must use to service our debt or pay our income taxes and thus does not reflect the funds actually available for capital expenditures. In addition, our presentation of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures other companies report.

We define adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per share as net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share excluding non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative loss, non-cash gain on revaluation of contingent consideration, acquisition-related professional fees, and officer severance. We present adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per share to provide more consistent information for investors to use when comparing operating results for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and 2014.

We define Free Cash Flow as cash provided by (used in) operations less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment, net of disposals. We consider Free Cash Flow to be an important indicator of our ability to service our debt and generate cash for acquisitions and other strategic investments.

We define Net Debt as total debt, including current maturities and capital lease obligations, minus cash and cash equivalents. We believe that Net Debt is useful to investors as a measure of our financial position.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, our reported operating results or cash flow from operations or any other measure of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
