CEMEX Announces Pricing Of U.S.$1.5 Billion In Senior Secured Notes

CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX) announced today the pricing of U.S.$1.5 billion aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes (the “Notes”) denominated in U.S. dollars.

The Notes to be issued by CEMEX Finance LLC will bear interest at an annual rate of 9.375% and mature in 2022. The Notes will be issued at par and will be callable commencing on their 5th anniversary. The closing of the offering is expected to occur on October 12, 2012, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

CEMEX intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to prepay principal outstanding under CEMEX’s Facilities Agreement, dated September 17, 2012, thereby allowing CEMEX to satisfy the March 31, 2013 U.S.$1.0 billion prepayment milestone and the February 14, 2014 U.S.$500 million amortization payment thereunder. These payments will reduce the interest rate on the Facilities Agreement debt by 25 basis points.

THE NEW NOTES MAY BE OFFERED IN MEXICO TO QUALIFIED AND INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS, PURSUANT TO THE PRIVATE PLACEMENT PROVISIONS SET FORTH IN ARTICLE 8 OF THE MEXICAN SECURITIES MARKET LAW.
