Forward-Looking Statements. This press release contains forward-looking
statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933,
Section 21E 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; the fact that our products are
commodities and that prices for our products are subject to material
fluctuation due to market conditions and other factors beyond our control;
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 announced capacity expansions; difficulties and delays in the
development of new business lines; governmental regulation and changes in
governmental and public policy (including, without limitation, climate change
regulation); possible outcomes of pending or future litigation or arbitration
proceedings; changes in 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. With
respect to any acquisition, factors, 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, the risk that we
may not be able to integrate the acquired assets in an efficient and
cost-effective manner with our other assets and operations, the possible
inability to realize synergies or other expected benefits of the transaction,
the possibility that we may incur significant costs relating to transition or
integration activities or repair and maintenance of the acquired assets, the
discovery of undisclosed liabilities associated with the business, the need to
repay the indebtedness incurred to fund the acquisition and the fact that
increased debt may limit our ability to respond to any changes in general
economic and business conditions that occur after the acquisition. These and
other factors are described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for
the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013 and in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q
for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2013. These reports are filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission. 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.
