U.S. Concrete Announces 2016 Second Quarter Results

EULESS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/04/16 --

Second Quarter 2016 Highlights Compared to Second Quarter 2015

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 quarter ended June 30, 2016. In the second quarter of 2016, Adjusted EBITDA increased to $34.1 million, compared to $33.7 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percentage of revenue was 12.4%, compared to 13.8% in the prior year quarter.

William J. Sandbrook, President and Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Concrete, stated, "We continue to successfully build strong leadership positions in our major metropolitan markets and strengthen our footprint through accretive acquisitions. During the second quarter, consolidated revenue increased 12.7% to $275.8 million on higher volume and price in both ready-mixed concrete and aggregates, including the contribution of successful acquisitions. Our leadership position in our markets enabled us to achieve our 21st straight quarter of year over year ready-mix price increases. The demand for our ready-mix product remains strong in each of our major markets which, along with our strategic acquisitions, drove a 9.0% increase in our year over year ready-mix volume this quarter. We increased Adjusted EBITDA for a 14th straight quarter of year over year growth to $34.1 million and we continue to focus on opportunities to improve our profitability."

Mr. Sandbrook continued, "We delivered these accomplishments despite near historical levels of significant inclement weather in our North Texas market. Our underlying demand trends continue to be positive reflecting our balanced exposure to high growth markets as evidenced by year over year and sequential increases in our ready-mix backlog."

Mr. Sandbrook concluded, "In June, we acquired a well-established ready-mixed concrete business in New York which further complements our position in that market. We also completed a very successful offering of $400.0 million of senior unsecured notes which improved our overall cost of capital and provided us with an attractive source of financing to further supplement our growth through acquisitions. We have entered the third quarter with solid sales volumes of our ready-mix product and we expect continued growth in our backlog. Our acquisition pipeline continues to provide opportunities for selective, accretive growth in both our ready-mixed concrete and aggregate platforms."

SECOND QUARTER 2016 RESULTS COMPARED TO SECOND QUARTER 2015
Consolidated revenue increased 12.7% to $275.8 million, compared to $244.7 million in the prior year quarter. Revenue from the ready-mixed concrete segment increased $29.5 million, or 13.5% compared to the prior year quarter, driven by both volume and pricing. The Company's ready-mixed concrete sales volume was 1.9 million cubic yards, up 9.0% compared to the prior year quarter. Ready-mixed concrete average sales price per cubic yard increased $5.77, or 4.7%, to $129.01 compared to $123.24 in the prior year quarter. Adjusted ready-mixed concrete material spread increased 1.3% from $62.32 per cubic yard in the prior year quarter to $63.11 for the second quarter of 2016, with an increase in raw material spread in all of the Company's major metropolitan markets. Ready-mix backlog at the end of the quarter was approximately 6.9 million cubic yards, up 27.0% compared to the end of the prior year quarter and 4.9% over the first quarter of 2016. Aggregate products sales volume was 1.4 million tons, up 13.1% compared to the prior year quarter. Adjusted aggregate products average sales price increased $1.05 per ton to $11.49 compared to $10.44 in the prior year quarter.

Consolidated gross profit increased $1.1 million to $53.5 million with a gross margin of 19.4% compared to 21.4% in the prior year quarter. Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were $23.2 million compared to $22.0 million in the prior year quarter. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses were 8.4%, compared to 9.0% in the prior year quarter. Excluding non-cash stock compensation, acquisition related professional fees, and officer severance, SG&A was 7.3% of revenue compared to 7.7% in the prior year quarter, reflecting tight cost controls.

Consolidated adjusted EBITDA of $34.1 million increased $0.4 million compared to the prior year quarter. Ready-mixed concrete segment adjusted EBITDA decreased $0.3 million to $33.3 million primarily due to the impact of weather in Texas, which was more than offset by an increase in aggregate products adjusted EBITDA of $0.7 million to $4.5 million compared to the prior year quarter.

Adjusted net income was $8.7 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to $10.6 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter including the impact of a normalized tax rate of 40%. Adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2016 excludes non-core items such as a $12.0 million loss on extinguishment of debt related to our notes offering this quarter and a $2.6 million non-cash loss related to derivatives attributable to the fair value changes in the Company's warrants. This compares to a non-cash derivative loss of $8.0 million during the second quarter of 2015. These non-cash derivative losses were due to the increase in the price of the Company's stock during each respective period. Including the impact of the loss on extinguishment of debt, derivative loss, non-cash stock compensation and acquisition-related professional fees, net loss calculated in accordance with GAAP was $3.5 million, or $0.23 loss per diluted share, compared to net income of $9.7 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015.

FIRST SIX MONTHS OF 2016 RESULTS COMPARED TO FIRST SIX MONTHS OF 2015
Consolidated revenue for the first six months of 2016 increased 25.2% to $520.8 million, versus $416.0 million in the comparable prior year period driven by higher volume and price in both ready-mixed concrete and aggregates. Revenue from the ready-mixed concrete segment increased $98.6 million, or 26.3% compared to the prior year period. Adjusted revenue from the aggregate products segment increased $8.7 million, or 35.4% compared to the prior year period.

For the first six months of 2016, consolidated adjusted EBITDA of $59.7 million increased by $9.8 million versus $50.0 million in the comparable prior year period. Ready-mixed concrete segment adjusted EBITDA increased by $7.2 million to $61.5 million compared to the prior year period. Aggregate products segment adjusted EBITDA increased by $3.1 million to $7.0 million compared to the prior year period.

BALANCE SHEET AND LIQUIDITY
Cash provided by operating activities in the second quarter of 2016 was $13.8 million compared to cash provided by operating activities in the prior year quarter of $34.5 million. The Company's free cash flow in the second quarter of 2016 was $2.5 million, compared to $30.9 million in the prior year quarter, with the variation mainly due to timing of working capital movements and additional cash used for purchases of property, plant and equipment.

In June 2016, the company completed an offering of $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of 6.375% senior unsecured notes due 2024 at an issue price equal to 100% of par value. A portion of the net proceeds from the notes were used to redeem all $200.0 million of outstanding 8.5% senior secured notes due 2018 and to repay all outstanding borrowings under the revolving credit facility. The Company intends to use the remaining net proceeds for general corporate purposes, including funding of acquisitions to expand its current business.

At June 30, 2016, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $101.1 million and total debt of $441.6 million, resulting in net debt of $340.5 million. The net debt increased by $68.9 million from December 31, 2015, largely as a result of the Company's senior unsecured notes offering during the second quarter of 2016 and financing the purchase of additional mixer trucks and mobile equipment partially offset by redemption of our 2018 senior secured notes and repayment of all amounts due under the revolving credit facility. The Company had $193.1 million of unused availability under its revolving credit facility as of June 30, 2016.

SECOND QUARTER 2016 ACQUISITION
In June 2016, the Company acquired the assets of NYCON Supply Corp. ("NYCON"), a well-established ready-mixed concrete producer primarily serving high- and mid-rise projects in New York City through two concrete batch plants and a fleet of 38 trucks. NYCON added a leading brand in quality and service, while further improving the Company's plant network to more efficiently serve regional customers.

CONFERENCE CALL AND WEBCAST DETAILS
U.S. Concrete will host a conference call on Thursday, August 4, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time (9:00 a.m. Central), to review its second quarter 2016 results.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This press release uses the non-GAAP financial measures "adjusted EBITDA," "segment adjusted EBITDA," "adjusted net income (loss)," "adjusted net income from continuing operations," "adjusted net income from operations before income taxes," "normalized income tax expense," "adjusted EBITDA margin," "free cash flow," "net debt," "adjusted segment revenue," and "adjusted material spread." 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) from continuing operations, normalized income tax expense, adjusted net income from continuing operations before taxes, adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations per share, and adjusted net income from continuing operations before income taxes per share to provide more consistent information for investors to use when comparing operating results for the second quarter of 2016 to the second quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's reported operating results, cash flow from operations or any other measure of performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. See the attached "Additional Statistics" for reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015.

U.S. CONCRETE, INC.
ADDITIONAL STATISTICS
(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 three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, and Net Debt as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015 and (2) corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 and as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015. 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 (loss) on revaluation of contingent consideration and normalized income tax expense on net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share and (2) corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015. We have also shown below certain statistics for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015.

We define total 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, acquisition-related professional fees, and officer severance. We define adjusted EBITDA margin as the amount determined by dividing total adjusted EBITDA by total revenue. We have included total 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 total adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin to monitor and compare the financial performance of our operations. Total 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 total adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures other companies report.

We define adjusted aggregate products revenue and adjusted aggregate products average sales price per ton (in dollars) as excluding the impact of any internal transfer price increases that have occurred since the corresponding period in the prior year for sales from our aggregates segment to our ready-mixed segment.

We define adjusted ready-mixed concrete material spread (in dollars per cubic yard) as excluding the impact of any internal transfer price increases from our aggregate products segment for any aggregates purchased by our ready-mixed concrete segment since the corresponding period in the prior year.

We define aggregate products segment adjusted EBITDA and ready-mixed concrete segment adjusted EBITDA as total adjusted EBITDA further adjusted to exclude the impact of internal transfer prices as described above for adjusted aggregate products revenue and adjusted ready-mixed concrete material spread.

We define gross profit as income (loss) from continuing operations excluding depreciation, depletion and amortization, selling and general administrative expenses, non-cash gain (loss) on revaluation of contingent consideration, and gain (loss) on sale of assets. We define gross profit percentage as the amount determined by dividing gross profit by total revenue. We believe that gross profit and gross profit percentage are useful to investors as a measure of our financial performance.

We define adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations and adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations per share as net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share excluding (i) non-cash stock compensation expense, (ii) derivative loss, (iii) non-cash gain (loss) on revaluation of contingent consideration, (iv) loss on extinguishment of debt, (v) acquisition-related professional fees, and (vi) officer severance and including normalized income tax expense (benefit). We present normalized income tax expense, adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations and adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations per share to provide more consistent information for investors to use when comparing operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015.

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.
