U.S. Concrete Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

EULESS, TX--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2012) - U.S. Concrete, Inc. (NASDAQ: USCR)

  • Consolidated revenue increases 10.9% to $148.9 million
  • Ready-mixed concrete volume rises 10.0% to 1.32 million cubic yards
  • Ready-mixed concrete average sales prices improve 3.6%
  • Adjusted EBITDA increases 31.2% to $8.0 million

U.S. Concrete, Inc. (NASDAQ: USCR) today reported a net loss of $3.2 million, or $(0.26) per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $9.6 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011. Included in the third quarter 2012 net loss amount was a non-cash loss related to the fair value change in the Company's derivatives of approximately $2.6 million, a non-cash loss on extinguishment of debt of $2.6 million related to the refinancing of our credit facility and approximately $0.7 million of expense related to the recently completed relocation of the corporate headquarters to Euless, Texas. Included in third quarter 2011 net income was a non-cash gain related to the fair value change in the Company's derivatives of approximately $11.2 million and approximately $0.3 million of expense related to the departure of our former President and Chief Executive Officer as well as the hiring of our new President and Chief Executive Officer in August 2011. Excluding the loss on derivatives, loss on early extinguishment of debt and relocation related expenses, net income and net earnings per share for the third quarter of 2012 would have been $2.7 million, or $0.22 per diluted share. Excluding the gain on derivatives and expenses related to the departure of the Company's former President and Chief Executive Officer and the hiring of our new President and Chief Executive Officer, net loss and net loss per diluted share for the third quarter of 2011 would have been $1.3 million, or $(0.10) per diluted share.

William J. Sandbrook, President and Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Concrete, stated "We are pleased with our third quarter results and are especially encouraged by our ability to execute on key strategic initiatives impacting most of our major markets. We hope to continue our positive momentum and we expect to aggressively continue our efforts to strategically enhance the position and financial performance of our company. It is an exciting time for U.S. Concrete."

THIRD QUARTER 2012 RESULTS
Consolidated revenue in the third quarter of 2012 increased 10.9% to $148.9 million, compared to $134.3 million in the third quarter of 2011. Revenue from the ready-mixed concrete and concrete-related products segment increased $19.1 million, or 14.5%, to $150.4 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $131.3 million in the third quarter of 2011. The Company's ready-mixed sales volume for the third quarter of 2012 was approximately 1.32 million cubic yards, up 10.0% from the 1.20 million cubic yards of ready-mixed concrete we sold in the third quarter of 2011. The Company's consolidated average sales price per cubic yard of ready-mixed concrete increased 3.6% during the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the third quarter of 2011. Precast concrete products segment revenue was down $1.9 million, or 25.4%, to $5.6 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared to $7.5 million during the third quarter of 2011.

The Company's adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") was $8.0 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $6.1 million in the third quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA margin, which is adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue, for the third quarter of 2012 was 5.4 percent, compared to 4.5 percent in the third quarter of 2011.

The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) from continuing operations plus expense (benefit) for income taxes, net interest expense, depreciation, depletion and amortization, and excludes derivative loss (income), loss on extinguishment of debt, expense related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters, and expenses related to the departure of the Company's former President and Chief Executive Officer and the hiring of the new President and CEO. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. For a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and net debt (which are other non-GAAP financial measures used in this earnings release) to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the attached "Additional Statistics" schedule.

Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") were approximately $15.3 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $12.5 million in the third quarter of 2011. The higher costs for the third quarter of 2012 were primarily due to $0.7 million of expenses related to the recently completed relocation of the corporate headquarters, higher non-cash stock based compensation costs, incentive compensation accruals and medical insurance costs, partially offset by $0.3 million of expenses in third quarter 2011 related to the departure of our former President and Chief Executive Officer and the hiring of our new President and Chief Executive Officer. 

Depreciation, depletion and amortization expense decreased $1.1 million, or 22.0%, to $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $4.8 million in the third quarter of 2011. The decrease was primarily due to certain assets becoming fully depreciated during the later part of 2011.

Net interest expense was flat during the third quarter of 2012, compared to the third quarter of 2011.

During the third quarter of 2012, the Company recorded a $2.6 million non-cash loss on derivatives. This non-cash loss was comprised of $1.9 million from fair value changes in the embedded derivative related to the Company's Convertible Notes and $0.7 million from fair value changes in the Company's warrants. This is compared to a non-cash gain of $11.2 million during the third quarter of 2011. These changes are due primarily to the increase in the price of the Company's common stock during the third quarter of 2012 and the decrease in the price of the Company's common stock during the third quarter of 2011.

Income tax benefit was $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to expense of $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2011. The benefit in the third quarter of 2012 was partially offset by tax expense of $0.4 million related to discontinued operations of the company resulting in a consolidated benefit of $0.2 million for the quarter. The Company's effective tax rate differs substantially from the federal statutory rate primarily due to the application of a valuation allowance that reduced the recognized benefit of deferred tax assets. In addition, certain state income taxes are calculated on bases different than pre-tax income (loss). This resulted in recording income tax expense in certain states that experience a pre-tax loss. 

The Company used cash in operations of $2.3 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to cash provided by operations of $3.1 million for the third quarter of 2011. The decline in the third quarter of 2012 was primarily the result of timing in working capital changes. The Company's free cash flow for the third quarter of 2012 was $19.0 million, compared to $2.5 million for the third quarter of 2011. We define "free cash flow" as cash provided by (used in) operations less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment, net of proceeds from disposals. Free cash flow for the third quarter of 2012 includes $22.8 million in proceeds from the aforementioned sale of our California pre-cast operations. Capital expenditures increased $0.7 million to $1.5 million for the third quarter of 2012, as compared to $0.8 million for the third quarter of 2011.

The Company's net debt at September 30, 2012 was approximately $52.9 million, down $4.0 million from September 30, 2011. We define net debt as total debt, including current maturities and capital lease obligations, minus cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash. The decrease in the Company's net debt was due primarily to a decrease in the outstanding balance at September 30, 2012 under our revolving credit facility and payments made on promissory notes related to an acquisition in 2010. Net debt at September 30, 2012 was comprised of total debt of $58.1 million, less cash and cash equivalents of $3.8 million and restricted cash of $1.4 million. 

Ready-mix backlog at the end of the third quarter of 2012 was 3.3 million yards, up approximately 16.6% year to date and up approximately 1.4% compared to the end of the third quarter 2011.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This press release uses the non-GAAP financial measures "adjusted EBITDA," "adjusted EBITDA margin," "free cash flow" and "net debt." The impact of non-cash derivative income and losses, loss on extinguishment of debt, expenses related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters and expenses related to the departure of the former President and CEO and hiring of new President and CEO on net loss and net loss per share also represent non-GAAP financial measures. 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 the impact of non-cash derivative income and losses, loss on extinguishment of debt, expenses related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters and expenses related to the departure of the former President and CEO and hiring of new President and CEO on net loss and net loss per share to provide more consistent information for investors to use when comparing operating results for the third quarter of 2012 to the third quarter of 2011. 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 three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

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 three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, and Net Debt as of September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011 and (2) corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 and as of September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011. We have also provided below (1) the impact of non-cash derivative income and losses, loss on extinguishment of debt, expenses related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters and expenses related to the departure of our former President and CEO and hiring of new President and CEO on net loss and net loss per share and (2) corresponding reconciliations to GAAP financial measures for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011. We have also shown below certain Ready-Mixed Concrete Statistics for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

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, derivative (income) loss, loss on extinguishment of debt, expense related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters and expense related to the departure of our former President and CEO and hiring of our new President and CEO. 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 have included the impact of non-cash derivative income and losses, loss on extinguishment of debt, expenses related to the Company's relocation of the corporate headquarters and expenses related to the departure of our former President and CEO and hiring of our new President and CEO on net loss and net loss per share to provide more consistent information for investors to use when comparing operating results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

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.
