VULCAN ANNOUNCES FOURTH QUARTER 2017 RESULTS

Fourth Quarter Aggregates Shipments Increase 7 Percent

EPS Growth of More Than 30 Percent Expected in 2018

Birmingham, Alabama – February 16, 2018 – Vulcan Materials Company (NYSE:VMC), the nation’s largest producer of construction aggregates, today announced results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017.

Net earnings from continuing operations were $328 million, or $2.43 per diluted share, versus $108 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, in the prior year’s fourth quarter. Gross profit was $243 million, a 1 percent increase from the prior year. The Company closed its previously announced acquisition of Aggregates USA on December 29, 2017.

Tom Hill, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Fourth quarter aggregates shipments showed encouraging momentum. Same-store daily shipment rates were up 8 percent in November and 11 percent in December after being down 3 percent in storm-impacted October. Total aggregates shipments grew 7 percent and aggregates pricing, adjusted for mix, improved 2 percent. Aggregates production costs were negatively impacted by lingering effects from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma as well as by Tropical Storm Nate, rising diesel and distribution costs, and production inefficiencies at certain facilities. Our asphalt and concrete operations, including recent acquisitions in those lines of business, continued to perform well.

“We expect fourth quarter shipment growth to continue into 2018. Private demand in Vulcan-served markets continues to recover, and public demand appears to be firming up after a disappointing 2017. The pricing climate for our materials remains positive, supported by solid demand visibility, rising diesel prices, rising cement prices, and expanding contractor margins. For 2018 we expect same-store aggregates shipment growth of 4 to 6 percent and aggregates pricing growth of 3 to 5 percent, albeit with significant variability across individual markets.

“We also expect our margin performance to return to its longer-term trend of continuous, compounding improvements. Weather-related cost pressures faced in 2017 should not repeat, and rising diesel and distribution costs should flow-through to pricing, although with a lag. Our record safety performance in 2017 underscores our confidence in the strength of our core operating disciplines. Tax reform and the acquisition of Aggregates USA will also support growth in earnings and cash flow.

“In total, we expect 2018 net earnings of between $4.00 and $4.65 per diluted share and Adjusted EBITDA of between $1.150 and $1.250 billion.”
