U.S. Concrete Prices $200 Million of Senior Secured Notes Due 2018

EULESS, Texas, Nov. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Concrete, Inc.
(Nasdaq:USCR) (the "Company" or "U.S. Concrete") announced today that it has
priced an offering of $200 million aggregate principal amount of its 8.500%
senior secured notes due 2018 (the "Notes") at an issue price of 100% of the
aggregate principal amount of the Notes. The Notes will mature on December 1,
2018, unless redeemed in accordance with their terms prior to such date. The
Notes were offered to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A
under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to
certain non-U.S. persons pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act.
The offering of the Notes is expected to close on November 22, 2013, subject
to customary closing conditions.

The Notes will be senior secured obligations of the Company and will be
guaranteed on a senior secured basis by the existing and future subsidiaries
of the Company that guarantee obligations under its senior secured asset-based
revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Facility") or that guarantee certain
other indebtedness of the Company or certain of its subsidiaries. The Notes
and the guarantees will be secured by a first-priority lien on certain of the
Company's and the subsidiary guarantors' assets and by a second-priority lien
on the Company's and the subsidiary guarantors' assets that secure the
Revolving Facility on a first-priority basis. The assets which secure the
Notes on a first-priority basis will secure the Revolving Facility on a
second-priority basis.

U.S. Concrete intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to repay all
of the outstanding borrowings under the Revolving Facility, to redeem or
otherwise retire all of its outstanding 9.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2015,
and for general corporate purposes. The Company has sent a conditional notice
of optional redemption to the Trustee for its outstanding 9.50% Senior Secured
Notes due 2015. The redemption is subject to certain conditions, including the
consummation of this offering or another financing that provides net proceeds
sufficient to redeem the 9.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2015 in full. If the
conditions are not satisfied, then the notice of optional redemption will be
rescinded.

The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state
securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent
registration under the Securities Act or an applicable exemption from the
registration requirements of the Securities Act.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation
of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any
state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to
registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or
jurisdiction.
