Eagle Materials Inc. Reports Continued Growth In Sales Volumes And Earnings In The Second Quarter

On October 3, 2012, Eagle also completed the public offering of 3.45 million shares of its common stock, which includes 450,000 shares issued pursuant to the underwriters’ exercise in full of their overallotment option, at a price to the public of $46.50 per share. Total gross proceeds from the equity offering were $160.4 million. Net proceeds from the offering were approximately $154.4 million, after deducting underwriting discounts, commissions and expenses related to the offering. The Company intends to use the net proceeds, together with borrowings under its bank credit facility, to fund the pending acquisition of the Lafarge Target Business.

Cement, Concrete and Aggregates

Operating earnings from Cement for the second quarter were $17.4 million, a 15% increase from the same quarter a year ago. Cement revenues for the quarter, including joint venture and intersegment revenues, totaled $78.5 million, 8% greater than the same quarter last year. Cement sales volumes for the quarter were 864,000 tons, 6% above the same quarter a year ago. The average net sales price this quarter was $82.77 per ton, 2% higher than the same quarter last year.

Concrete and Aggregates reported a $0.4 million operating loss for the second quarter, down from a slight operating profit for the same quarter a year ago, primarily due to lower concrete sales volumes and lower aggregates sales volumes in Northern California.

Gypsum Wallboard and Paperboard

Gypsum Wallboard and Paperboard’s second quarter operating earnings of $24.2 million were up 1,513% compared to the same quarter last year. Higher wallboard average net sales prices, higher gypsum wallboard and gypsum paperboard sales volumes and lower recycled paper input costs were the primary driver of the quarterly earnings increase.

Gypsum Wallboard and Paperboard revenues for the second quarter totaled $96.5 million, a 33% increase from the same quarter a year ago. The revenue increase reflects primarily higher wallboard average net sales prices and sales volumes.
