U.S. Concrete, Inc. (NASDAQ: USCR), a leading producer of construction materials in select major markets across the United States, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016. In the first quarter of 2016, Adjusted EBITDA increased to $25.6 million, compared to $16.3 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin as a percentage of revenue improved to 10.5%, compared to 9.5% in the prior year quarter.

William J. Sandbrook, President and Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Concrete, stated, "During the first quarter of 2016 we significantly grew revenue, improved profitability and further enhanced our footprint through a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions. Our leadership positions in high growth markets enabled us to achieve our 20th straight quarter of year-over-year ready-mix price increases. The underlying demand trends in our major ready-mix markets remain robust with organic ready-mix volume increasing 18.4%. Additionally, value enhancing acquisitions in the preceding fifteen months helped contribute to our 38.1% increase in ready-mix volume in the first quarter as well. In the first quarter of 2016, we completed two strategic acquisitions which strengthened our existing operations in New York and northern Texas."

Mr. Sandbrook continued, "The collective expansion of our operations and excellent execution of our operating strategy drove a 57.2% increase in Adjusted EBITDA to $25.6 million representing 100 basis points of Adjusted EBITDA margin improvement. Concurrently, we delivered a very solid free cash flow of $6.8 million in the first quarter of 2016 compared to a free cash flow deficit of $2.1 million for the same period last year. As we look forward to the balance of 2016, our backlog continues to grow, the regions in which we operate remain vibrant and our acquisition pipeline continues to provide further opportunities for continued, disciplined and accretive growth in both of our scalable ready-mix concrete and aggregate platforms."

FIRST QUARTER 2016 RESULTS COMPARED TO FIRST QUARTER 2015

Consolidated revenue increased 43.0% to $245.0 million, compared to $171.3 million in the prior year quarter. Revenue from the ready-mixed concrete segment increased $69.0 million, or 44.5% compared to the prior year quarter, driven by both volume and pricing. The Company's ready-mixed concrete sales volume was 1.8 million cubic yards, up 38.1% compared to the prior year quarter. Ready-mixed concrete average sales price per cubic yard increased $5.40, or 4.5%, to $126.44 compared to $121.04 in the prior year quarter. Ready-mixed concrete material spread increased 2.1% from $61.47 per cubic yard in the prior year quarter to $62.78 for the first quarter of 2016. Ready-mixed concrete material spread percentage was lower by 120 basis points in the first quarter of 2016 compared to the prior year quarter. The decline was due to extremely wet weather in our California operations which caused a volume mix shift to lower margin geographies. Sequentially, ready-mixed concrete material spread margin increased by 80 basis points. Aggregate products sales volume was 1.2 million tons, up 55.0% compared to the prior year quarter. Aggregate products average sales price increased $1.43 per ton to $11.38 compared to $9.95 in the prior year quarter. Ready-mix backlog at the end of the quarter was approximately 6.5 million cubic yards, up 28.8% compared to the end of the prior year quarter.

Consolidated gross profit increased $14.7 million to $46.3 million with a 50 basis point expansion in gross margin to 18.9% compared to the prior year quarter. Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were $23.2 million compared to $17.9 million in the prior year quarter. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses were 9.5%, compared to 10.5% in the prior year quarter. Excluding non-cash stock compensation, acquisition related professional fees, and officer severance, SG&A was 8.6% of revenue compared to 9.2% in the prior year quarter.

Consolidated adjusted EBITDA of $25.6 million increased $9.3 million, with a 100 basis point expansion in margin, compared to the prior year quarter. Ready-mixed concrete adjusted EBITDA increased 34.9% to $27.8 million. Aggregate products adjusted EBITDA increased to $2.9 million compared to $0.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Adjusted net income was $5.0 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to $1.7 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter including the impact of a normalized tax rate of 40%. Adjusted net income in the first quarter of 2016 excludes non-core items such as a $12.8 million non-cash loss related to derivatives attributable to the fair value changes in the Company's warrants. This compares to a non-cash derivative loss of $11.5 million during the first quarter of 2015. These non-cash derivative losses were due to the increase in the price of the Company's stock during each respective period. Including the impact of the derivative loss as well as non-cash stock compensation and acquisition-related professional fees, net loss calculated in accordance with GAAP was $10.0 million, or $0.68 loss per diluted share, compared to net loss of $10.5 million, or $0.77 loss per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2015.

Cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter of 2016 was $17.8 million compared to cash provided by operating activities in the prior year quarter of $0.9 million. The Company's free cash flow in the first quarter of 2016 was $6.8 million, compared to a deficit of $2.1 million in the prior year quarter, with the improvement mainly due to higher cash provided by operating activities which more than offset additional cash used for purchases of property, plant and equipment.

At March 31, 2016, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $8.8 million and total debt of $296.5 million, resulting in net debt of $287.6 million. The net debt increased by $16.0 million from December 31, 2015, largely as a result of draws under the Company's revolving credit facility used to fund acquisitions completed since the beginning of 2016, as well as financing of the purchase of additional mixer trucks and mobile equipment. We had $94.6 million of unused availability under our revolving credit facility as of March 31, 2016.

ACQUISITIONS

In February 2016, the Company acquired the assets of Greco Brothers Concrete of L.I., Inc ("Greco"), a ready-mixed concrete producer located in Brooklyn, NY, with an established and respected market presence serving commercial and residential high-rise projects in the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island and Queens. The Greco transaction added two ready-mixed concrete plants and a fleet of 37 mixer trucks which are being integrated into U.S. Concrete's existing New York operations.

In March 2016, the Company acquired Strickland Bridge, Inc. ("Strickland") of Haskell, TX, adding one concrete batch plant and a fleet of six mixer trucks. Strickland provides a good fit with the Company's northern Texas growth strategy and expands operations near the growing Abilene, Texas market with an enhanced ability to offer superior service and high quality materials.

CONFERENCE CALL AND WEBCAST DETAILS

U.S. Concrete will host a conference call on Thursday, May 5, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time (9:00 a.m. Central), to review its first quarter 2016 results.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release uses the non-GAAP financial measures "adjusted EBITDA," "adjusted net income (loss)," "adjusted net income from continuing operations," "adjusted net income from operations before income taxes," "normalized income tax expense," "adjusted EBITDA margin," "free cash flow" and "net debt." The Company has included adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin in this press release because it is widely used by investors for valuation and comparing the Company's financial performance with the performance of other building material companies. The Company also uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin to monitor and compare the financial performance of its operations. Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to the cash the Company must use to service its debt or pay its income taxes, and thus does not reflect the funds actually available for capital expenditures. In addition, the Company's presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures that other companies report. The Company considers free cash flow to be an important indicator of its ability to service debt and generate cash for acquisitions and other strategic investments. The Company believes that net debt is useful to investors as a measure of its financial position. The Company presents adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations, normalized income tax expense, adjusted net income from continuing operations before taxes, adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations per share, and adjusted net income from continuing operations before income taxes per share to provide more consistent information for investors to use when comparing operating results for the first quarter of 2016 to the first quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company's reported operating results or cash flow from operations or any other measure of performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. See the attached "Additional Statistics" for reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures for the quarters ended March 31, 2016 and 2015.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains various forward-looking statements and information that are based on management's belief, as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to management.

ADDITIONAL STATISTICS
 (Unaudited)

We report our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). However, our management believes that certain non-GAAP performance measures and ratios, which our management uses in managing our business, may provide users of this financial information additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. See the table below for (1) presentations of our adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and Free Cash Flow for the quarters ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, and Net Debt as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 and (2) corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the quarters ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 and as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015. We have also provided below (1) the impact of non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative losses, acquisition-related professional fees, officer severance, non-cash gain (loss) on revaluation of contingent consideration and normalized income tax expense on net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share and (2) corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the quarters ended March 31, 2016 and 2015. We have also shown below certain statistics for the quarters ended March 31, 2016 and 2015.

We define adjusted EBITDA as our net income (loss) from continuing operations, plus the provision (benefit) for income taxes, net interest expense, depreciation, depletion and amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense, derivative (gain) loss, gain (loss) on revaluation of contingent consideration, acquisition-related professional fees, and officer severance. We define adjusted EBITDA margin as the amount determined by dividing adjusted EBITDA by total revenue. We have included adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin in the accompanying tables because they are widely used by investors for valuation and comparing our financial performance with the performance of other building material companies. We also use adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin to monitor and compare the financial performance of our operations. Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to the cash we must use to service our debt or pay our income taxes and thus does not reflect the funds actually available for capital expenditures. In addition, our presentation of adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures other companies report.

We define gross profit as income (loss) from continuing operations excluding depreciation, depletion and amortization, selling and general administrative expenses, non-cash gain (loss) on revaluation of contingent consideration, and gain (loss) on sale of assets. We define gross profit percentage as the amount determined by dividing gross profit by total revenue. We believe that gross profit and gross profit percentage are useful to investors as a measure of our financial performance.

We define adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations and adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations per share as net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share excluding (i) non-cash stock compensation expense, (ii) derivative loss, (iii) non-cash gain (loss) on revaluation of contingent consideration, (iv) acquisition-related professional fees, and (v) officer severance and including normalized income tax expense (benefit). We present normalized income tax expense, adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations and adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations per share to provide more consistent information for investors to use when comparing operating results for the quarters ended March 31, 2016 and 2015.

We define Free Cash Flow as cash provided by (used in) operations less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment, net of disposals. We consider Free Cash Flow to be an important indicator of our ability to service our debt and generate cash for acquisitions and other strategic investments.

We define Net Debt as total debt, including current maturities and capital lease obligations, minus cash and cash equivalents. We believe that Net Debt is useful to investors as a measure of our financial position.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, our reported operating results or cash flow from operations or any other measure of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
