General Comments"The fourth quarter certainly benefited from the continuing recovery of construction activity in our major markets," stated Mel Brekhus, Chief Executive Officer. "Shipments of all products reflect double digit percentage increases compared to a year ago." "We also achieved two strategic milestones during the quarter," added Brekhus. "The commissioning of our 1.4 million ton cement kiln at our central Texas plant was finished late in the quarter and we completed the acquisition of 42 ready-mix plants in east Texas. Both events significantly improve our ability to take advantage of the strong recovery under way in Texas."
