CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V., through its subsidiaries, is engaged in the production, distribution, marketing and sale of cement, ready-mix concrete, aggregates, clinker and other construction materials worldwide. The company has operations in Mexico, the United States, northern Europe, the Mediterranean, South America and the Caribbean and Asia. The company’s installed cement production capacity, as of December 31, 2014, was approximately 93.7 million tons. Products The company tailors its products and services to suit customers’ specific needs, from home construction, improvement and renovation to agricultural, industrial and marine/hydraulic applications. Cement: The company manufactures cement through a closely controlled chemical process, which begins with the mining and crushing of limestone and clay, and, in some instances, other raw materials. The clay and limestone are then pre-homogenized, a process which consists of combining different types of clay and limestone. The mix is typically dried, then fed into a grinder which grinds the various materials in preparation for the kiln. For cement limestone, clay and gypsum, the company runs chemical tests to prepare the mining plan of the quarry, to confirm material quality and reduce variations in the mineral content. As of December 31, 2014, 53 of its operative production plants used the dry process and 2 used the wet process. The company primarily covers its gypsum needs from third parties. Its main types of cement include the following: gray ordinary portland cement, white portland cement, masonry or mortar, oil-well cement, and blended cement. Ready-Mix Concrete Ready-mix concrete is a combination of cement, fine and coarse aggregates, admixtures (which control properties of the concrete, including plasticity, pumpability, freeze-thaw resistance, strength and setting time), and water. It tailors its ready-mix concrete to fit its clients’ specific needs. The company also uses additives to customize its concrete consistent with the transportation time from its plant to the project, weather conditions at the construction site, and the project’s specifications. Aggregates The company supplies aggregates, including primarily the crushed stone, sand and gravel, used in all forms of construction. Customers use its aggregates for a range of uses, from a key component in the construction and maintenance of highways, walkways, and railways to an indispensable ingredient in concrete, asphalt, and mortar. Aggregates are obtained from land-based sources, such as sand and gravel pits and rock quarries or by dredging marine deposits. Related Products The company relies on relationship with customers to offer them complementary products for their construction needs, which mainly include the following: asphalt, concrete block, roof tiles, architectural products, pipe, and other precast products. Trading Operations In 2014, the company traded approximately 10.2 million tons of cementitious materials, including 9.5 million tons of cement and clinker. Approximately 7.7 million tons of the traded cement and clinker consisted of exports from operations in Costa Rica, Croatia, the Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, Germany, Guatemala, Latvia, Mexico, the Philippines, Poland, Puerto Rico, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and the United States. As of December 31, 2014, the company had trading activities in approximately 100 countries. In 2014, the company traded approximately 0.7 million tons of granulated blast furnace slag, a non-clinker cementitious material. Strategy The company’s strategy includes the following: recruit, retain and cultivate world-class managers; provide customers with the best value proposition; pursue markets that offer long-term profitability; and foster sustainable development. Customers The primary end-users of cement in each region in which the company operates include wholesalers, ready-mix concrete producers, industrial customers, and contractors in bulk. The end-users of ready-mix concrete include homebuilders, commercial and industrial building contractors and road builders. Major end-users of aggregates include
