U.S. Concrete Amends Credit Facility

EULESS, Texas, Oct. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On October 29, 2013, U.S. Concrete, Inc. (Nasdaq:USCR) (the "Company" or "U.S. Concrete") amended and restated its asset-based credit agreement. The amendment, among other provisions, effects the following changes upon a qualified refinancing of the Company's 9.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2015 (if any):

(1)   increases the total commitments under the credit facility from $102.5 million to $125 million; and

(2)   extends the expiration date of the credit facility from July 1, 2015 to the earlier of (i) October 29, 2018 or (ii) 60 days prior to the maturity of the indebtedness incurred in refinancing the Senior Secured Notes.

The amendment also increases the uncommitted accordion feature to $50 million, increasing the total commitments that may be allowable under the credit facility to $175 million. Availability under the facility is subject to certain conditions including the calculation of a borrowing base. U.S. Concrete President and Chief Executive Officer, William J. Sandbrook, said, "The amendment provides us with needed flexibility, including a contingent increase in borrowing capacity and extension of tenor, and is another step that better aligns the Company's capital structure with our strategic plan for growth."
