2012 Second Quarter Compared to 2011

Revenues for the quarter increased 31.3% over the 2011 comparable quarter primarily as a result of $35.6 million of revenues from recently acquired operations in Arizona and California and higher revenues from our Nevada operations reflecting the impact of the $25 million of contracts assumed from Aggregate Industries, Inc. in January 2012. The improvements were somewhat offset by lower revenues in Texas.
