Details of Financial Results

Acquisition and Litigation Expense consists of direct costs related to our pending acquisition of the Lafarge Target Business and the write-off of deferred project costs associated with a greenfield cement project that will no longer be pursued due to the pending acquisition and legal fees related to our lawsuit against the IRS. Direct acquisition costs were approximately $3.5 million (pre-tax), greenfield write-off costs were approximately $1.0 million (pre-tax) and legal fees were approximately $1.2 million (pre-tax) during the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Texas Lehigh Cement Company LP, one of our cement plant operations, is conducted through a 50/50 joint venture (the “Joint Venture”). We utilize the equity method of accounting for our 50% interest in the Joint Venture. For segment reporting purposes we proportionately consolidate our 50% share of the Joint Venture’s revenues and operating earnings, which is consistent with the way management organizes the segments in the Company for making operating decisions and assessing performance.

In addition, for segment reporting purposes, we report intersegment revenues as a part of a segment’s total revenues. Intersegment sales are eliminated on the income statement. Refer to Attachment 3 for a reconciliation of the amounts referred to above.
