TXI Reports Third Quarter Results

DALLAS, March 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Texas Industries, Inc. (NYSE:TXI) today reported financial results for the quarter ended February 28, 2013.

General Comments

"Construction activity in Texas and California continued to improve this quarter," stated Mel Brekhus, Chief Executive Officer. "Gross profit increased $14.2 million on increased sales of $19.5 million. This increase in profitability primarily reflects the benefits of increased shipments in reducing unit costs, and success in increasing efficiencies throughout the Company."

"The commissioning of the second kiln at our central Texas plant is on target to be completed this spring. This additional 1.4 million tons of cement capacity, in combination with the East Texas ready mix assets we acquired last week, places TXI in a strong position to benefit from the recovery in construction that is underway," added Brekhus.

A teleconference will be held tomorrow, March 28, 2013 at 10:00 Central Daylight Time to further discuss quarter results. A real-time webcast of the conference is available by logging on to TXI's website at .
