General Comments

"Net sales for cement were up 20% compared to the same quarter a year ago and marks the sixth consecutive quarter that net cement sales exceeded the prior year," stated Mel Brekhus, Chief Executive Officer. "Aggregate and ready-mix net sales were up 32% and 18% respectively compared to a year ago."

"I am happy to announce that the commissioning of the second kiln at our central Texas plant began as scheduled and is on target to be completed this spring. With the rebound in Texas cement consumption well into its second year, the timing of our expansion appears to be very good. At an annual production capacity of 1.4 million tons, the second kiln increases TXI's total annual cement capacity by 26% to approximately 6.7 million tons," added Brekhus.

A teleconference will be held tomorrow, January 10, 2013 at 10:00 Central Standard Time to further discuss quarter results. A real-time webcast of the conference is available by logging on to TXI's website at www.txi.com .
