VULCAN ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER 2017 RESULTS

 

Operating Earnings Improve Despite Hurricane Disruptions

Continued Improvement in Aggregates Unit Profitability

Fundamental Demand Drivers Remain Solid

 

Birmingham, Alabama – November 1, 2017 – Vulcan Materials Company (NYSE:VMC), the nation’s largest producer of construction aggregates, today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017.

 

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma negatively affected more than half of the Company’s operational footprint in the third quarter. Important Southeastern markets, particularly Florida and Georgia, as well as coastal markets in Texas and along the central Gulf Coast were disrupted. Prolonged extreme weather conditions limited both revenue growth and profitability. Aggregates shipments increased 1 percent and pricing improved 3 percent versus the prior year’s third quarter. Overall, both gross profit and operating earnings improved slightly compared to the prior year.

 

Tom Hill, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Storms disrupted the third quarter shipment pattern in a number of our stronger growth markets. Absent the impact of these storms, our daily shipping pace would have been at least 7 percent higher than the prior year during August and September, and in line with expectations. We are still experiencing some lingering effects from these storms on plant efficiency and shipment levels, which will take some time to work through. Underlying demand, however, remains solid, the pricing environment remains positive and our unit profitability in aggregates continues to strengthen. On a same-store basis, our third quarter gross profit per ton was essentially flat while our cash gross profit per ton set a third quarter record despite the severe weather. I am very encouraged by these trends, which should provide good momentum into 2018.

 

“Our business remains on track with our longer-term goals and expectations. Growth in new construction starts in our markets continues to outpace the rest of the U.S. Recent acquisitions are performing well and should make meaningful contributions to our earnings growth in 2018 and beyond. We remain confident in the sustained, multi-year recovery in materials demand across our markets and in the further compounding improvements to our unit profitability. However, given the shortfall in shipments to date and due to certain lingering effects of third quarter weather events on fourth quarter shipments, pricing and costs, we now expect full year aggregates shipments to approximate the prior year, with full year Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1 billion.”
