statements within the meaning of Section27A of the Securities Act of 1933,
Section21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Private Securities
Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements may be identified by
the context of the statement and generally arise when the Company is
discussing its beliefs, estimates or expectations. These statements are not
historical facts or guarantees of future performance but instead represent
only the Company's belief at the time the statements were made regarding
future events which are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and other
factors many of which are outside the Company's control. Actual results and
outcomes may differ materially from what is expressed or forecast in such
forward-looking statements. The principal risks and uncertainties that may
affect the Company’s actual performance include the following: the cyclical
and seasonal nature of the Company’s business; public infrastructure
expenditures; adverse weather conditions; availability of raw materials;
changes in energy costs including, without limitation, natural gas, coal and
oil; changes in the cost and availability of transportation; unexpected
operational difficulties; inability to timely execute expansion opportunities;

economic conditions specific to any one or more of the Company’s markets;
competition; announced increases in capacity in the gypsum wallboard and
cement industries; changes in the demand for residential housing construction
or commercial construction; general economic conditions; and interest rates.
For example, increases in interest rates, decreases in demand for construction
materials or increases in the cost of energy (including, without limitation,
natural gas, coal and oil) could affect the revenues and operating earnings of
our operations. In addition, changes in national or regional economic
conditions and levels of infrastructure and construction spending could also
adversely affect the Company's result of operations. These and other factors
are described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year
ended March31, 2013 and in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal
quarter ended June 30, 2013. These reports are filed with the Securities and

risks and uncertainties that may cause actual events and developments to vary
materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements include, but
are not limited to, failure to realize the expected benefits of the
transaction, possible negative effects of consummation of the transaction,
significant transaction costs or unknown liabilities, and general economic and
business conditions that may affect us following the acquisition. All
forward-looking statements made herein are made as of the date hereof, and the
risk that actual results will differ materially from expectations expressed
herein will increase with the passage of time. The Company undertakes no duty
to update any forward-looking statement to reflect future events or changes in
the Company's expectations.
