Vulcan Materials Company Enters into New Credit Agreement with the Several Banks

On June 19, 2015, Vulcan Materials Company entered into a new credit agreement with SunTrust Bank, as administrative agent, and the several banks from time to time parties thereto as lenders that provides a five-year $750 million unsecured revolving credit facility. The Credit Facility is guaranteed by significant subsidiaries. Proceeds of the Credit Facility will be used for general corporate purposes. The Credit Agreement contains general, informational and negative covenants and events of default customary for unsecured credit facilities. The primary non-financial covenants are limitations on secured indebtedness, acquisitions, investments and divestitures. The borrowing capacity under the Credit Facility, and total debt, will be limited by two standard financial covenants: debt to EBITDA maximum ratio of 3.5:1 through September 2016, and 3.25:1 thereafter and EBITDA to interest expense ratio minimum of 3.0:1. Loans under the Credit Facility bear interest at a rate equal to the Eurodollar Rate, or the Base Rate plus a credit spread. The credit spread is based upon either debt to EBITDA ratio or credit ratings, whichever results in a lower credit spread.

Vulcan Materials Company Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend, Payable on June 10, 2015

The board of directors of Vulcan Materials Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of 10 cents per share on its common stock. The dividend will be payable on June 10, 2015, to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 26, 2015.

Vulcan Materials Company Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Vulcan Materials Company announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the period, the company reported total revenues of $631,293,000 against $574,420,000 a year ago. Operating earnings were $10,759,000 against $194,669,000 a year ago. Loss from continuing operations before income taxes were $50,742,000 against earnings from continuing operations before income taxes of $77,405,000 a year ago. Loss from continuing operations were $36,667,000 or $0.28 per basic and diluted share against earnings from continuing operations of $54,505,000 or $0.41 per diluted share a year ago. Net loss was $39,678,000 or $0.30 per basic and diluted share against net earnings of $53,995,000 or $0.41 per basic and diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $19,154,000 against net cash used for operating activities of $4,972,000 a year ago. Purchases of property, plant & equipment was $49,611,000 against $46,006,000 a year ago. Negative free cash flow was $30,457,000 against $50,978,000 a year ago. EBIT was $11,738,000 against $197,494,000 a year ago. EBITDA was $78,461,000 against $266,872,000 a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $76,841,000 against $38,975,000 a year ago. Adjusted EBIT was $11,099,000 against adjusted LBIT of $29,419,000 a year ago. Adjusted for exceptional items, earnings from continuing operations were a loss of $0.16 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2015 versus loss of $0.28 per diluted share in the prior year. For the year 2015, the company expects adjusted EBITDA of $775 to $825 million, driven by strong growth in aggregates gross profit, earnings improvement in non-aggregates businesses and continuing leverage of selling, administrative and general expenses.  Supporting these expectations for strong earnings growth is an 11% increase in aggregates shipments (8% same-store) and a 6% increase in pricing. If diesel prices remain at current levels, Adjusted EBITDA expectations would move towards the high end of guidance. For this year, CapEx is $250 million.
