Ronnie Pruitt, President and Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Concrete, Inc. highlighted, "While today's release is about our second quarter financial results, I want to acknowledge that we are operating in a remarkably challenging environment, and I want to thank our employees, suppliers, customers and financial stakeholders for their dedication and resilience.

"We are very pleased to report our Total Adjusted EBITDA Margin for the second quarter of 2020 was 14.8%, a significant improvement over the prior year second quarter.  A comprehensive review of our operations and decisive action by our managers, combined with the highly variable nature of our cost structure, allowed us to achieve these margins, despite the unprecedented disruption in several of our key markets."

Mr. Pruitt continued, "We continue to realize the strategic value of the Coram Materials acquisition, and I'm pleased by the successful integration of that important operation.  Our growing presence as a third-party provider of critical aggregate products supports the underlying demand trends in all major markets where we operate.  This was evident as we achieved all-time quarterly high revenue and Adjusted EBITDA in our aggregate products segment during the second quarter of 2020.

"Our employees' ability to address rapid changes in our markets during the quarter demonstrates their flexibility and resolve. This is most evident in our re-engineering efforts and sustainable cost containment initiatives that resulted in the operating performance improvements and set the framework to address future changes to our business and demand for our products."

The calculation of ASP excludes certain other ancillary revenue and certain freight revenue.  The Company defines revenue for its aggregate products ASP calculation as amounts billed to external and internal customers for coarse and fine aggregate products, excluding delivery charges.  The Company's definition and calculation of ASP may differ from other companies in the construction materials industry.

Aggregate products revenue increased $5.0 million in the 2020 second quarter to an all-time high of $54.5 million, resulting from a 10.8% increase in sales volume and an 8.5% increase in average selling price related to the favorable mix of products sold compared to the second quarter of 2019.  Aggregate products Adjusted EBITDA of $21.6 million in the 2020 second quarter increased 77.0% from the second quarter of 2019, primarily related to improved operating efficiencies, increased production volume at our Texas aggregates operations, and the profitability from the Coram Materials acquisition.

Calculation excludes certain ancillary revenue that is reported within the segment.

Revenue from the ready-mixed concrete segment for the second quarter of 2020 decreased $41.6 million, or 13.2%, compared to the prior year second quarter, as our New York City and California markets were  impacted by temporary restrictions and delays in certain construction activity related to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Despite the volume decline, actions taken from our business contingency plans in the form of labor management, concrete mix optimization, higher asset utilization and delivery efficiencies, which included lower fuel costs, resulted in second quarter 2020 Adjusted EBITDA equal to the the second quarter of 2019. While the Company recognized resilient and increased pricing in each of its operating regions in the second quarter of 2020, overall ASP declined due to changes in the product and geographical mix of revenue compared to the second quarter of 2019.  

CONSOLIDATED SECOND QUARTER 2020 RESULTS COMPARED TO SECOND QUARTER 2019

Consolidated revenue decreased as compared to the prior year second quarter, primarily as a result of lower ready-mixed concrete volumes stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, which were partially offset by record revenue from aggregate products.  Revenue declined significantly in April but improved progressively month-to-month throughout the second quarter as the definition of essential services evolved in each market and restrictions were modified.  During the second quarter of 2020, operating income was $21.6 million compared to $6.0 million in the second quarter of 2019, with an operating income margin of 6.7% compared to 1.6% in the second quarter of 2019.  The improvement in operating income resulted from our aggressive cost containment measures, operating efficiencies, continued focus on our operating margin, and growth from our aggregate products segment, which included our Coram Materials acquisition, as well as lower fuel costs.

Selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A") as a percentage of revenue was 9.8% in the 2020 second quarter compared to 10.7% in the prior year second quarter.  SG&A decreased $7.5 million, or 19.1%, for the 2020 second quarter, in comparison to the 2019 second quarter, primarily as a result of a lower non-cash stock-based compensation expense. In addition, management implemented cost-cutting measures throughout the Company in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly impacting travel, entertainment, and labor.  These improvements were partially offset by realignment initiative costs. On a non-GAAP basis, Adjusted SG&A, which excludes non-cash stock compensation, acquisition-related costs and realignment initiative costs, was 8.8% of revenue in the 2020 second quarter compared to 7.8% in the prior year second quarter, with reduced leverage due to the lower sales volumes stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. Adjusted SG&A as a percentage of revenue is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Please refer to the definitions, reconciliations, and other information at the end of this press release.

BALANCE SHEET AND LIQUIDITY

Net cash provided by operating activities in the 2020 second quarter more than doubled to $40.1 million, compared to $18.7 million in the prior year second quarter.  The Company's Adjusted Free Cash Flow in the 2020 second quarter more than doubled to $33.3 million, compared to $14.1 million in the prior year second quarter. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Please refer to the definitions, reconciliations, and other information at the end of this press release.

At June 30, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $17.5 million and total debt of $758.9 million, resulting in Net Debt of $741.4 million.  Net Debt increased $94.7 million from December 31, 2019 due primarily to the acquisition of Coram Materials in February 2020.  At June 30, 2020, the Company had  available borrowing capacity of $137.3 million under its revolving credit facility and $180.0 million under its delayed draw term loan facility, resulting in total liquidity of $334.8 million when combined with its cash balances.  Net Debt is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Please refer to the definitions, reconciliations, and other information at the end of this press release.

By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. We believe that these risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: general economic and business conditions, which will, among other things, affect demand for new residential and commercial construction; our ability to successfully identify, manage, and integrate acquisitions; the cyclical nature of, and changes in, the real estate and construction markets, including pricing changes by our competitors; governmental requirements and initiatives, including those related to mortgage lending, financing or deductions, funding for public or infrastructure construction, land usage, and environmental, health, and safety matters; disruptions, uncertainties or volatility in the credit markets that may limit our, our suppliers' and our customers' access to capital; our ability to successfully implement our operating strategy; weather conditions; our substantial indebtedness and the restrictions imposed on us by the terms of our indebtedness; the effects of currency fluctuations on our results of operations and financial condition; our ability to maintain favorable relationships with third parties who supply us with equipment and essential supplies; our ability to retain key personnel and maintain satisfactory labor relations; and product liability, property damage, results of litigation and other claims and insurance coverage issues. These risks and uncertainties also include the effects of COVID-19; the length and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic; the pace of recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic; our ability to implement cost containment strategies; and the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, the economy and the markets we serve.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(Unaudited)

Total Adjusted EBITDA and Total Adjusted EBITDA Margin

Total Adjusted EBITDA and Total Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures.  We define Total Adjusted EBITDA as our net income (loss), excluding the impact of income tax expense (benefit), depreciation, depletion and amortization, net interest expense and certain other non-cash, non-recurring and/or unusual, non-operating items including, but not limited to: non-cash stock compensation expense, non-cash change in value of contingent consideration, impairment of assets, acquisition-related costs, officer transition expenses, purchase accounting adjustments for inventory, and realignment initiative costs.  Acquisition-related costs consist of fees and expenses for accountants, lawyers and other professionals incurred during the negotiation and closing of strategic acquisitions and certain acquired entities' management severance costs.  Acquisition-related costs do not include fees or expenses associated with post-closing integration of strategic acquisitions.  We define Total Adjusted EBITDA Margin as the amount determined by dividing Total Adjusted EBITDA by total revenue.  We have included Total Adjusted EBITDA and Total Adjusted EBITDA Margin herein because they are widely used by investors for valuation and comparing our financial performance with the performance of other building material companies.  We also use Total Adjusted EBITDA and Total Adjusted EBITDA Margin to monitor and compare the financial performance of our operations.  Total Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to the cash we must use to service our debt or pay our income taxes and thus does not reflect the funds actually available for capital expenditures.  In addition, our presentation of Total Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures other companies report.  Total Adjusted EBITDA and Total Adjusted EBITDA Margin are not intended to be used as an alternative to any measure of our performance in accordance with GAAP.  The following table reconciles Total Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, which is net income (loss) (in millions).

Adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") and Adjusted SG&A as a percentage of revenue are non-GAAP financial measures.  We define Adjusted SG&A as selling, general and administrative expenses, excluding the impact of non-cash stock compensation expense, acquisition-related costs, officer transition costs, and realignemnt initiative cost.  We define Adjusted SG&A as a percentage of revenue as Adjusted SG&A divided by total revenue.  We have included Adjusted SG&A and Adjusted SG&A as a percentage of revenue herein because they are used by investors to compare our SG&A leverage with the performance of other building materials companies.  We use Adjusted SG&A and Adjusted SG&A as a percentage of revenue to monitor and compare the financial performance of our operations.  Adjusted SG&A and Adjusted SG&A as a percentage of revenue are not intended to be used as an alternative to any measure of our performance under GAAP.  The following table reconciles Adjusted SG&A to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, which is SG&A (in millions).

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete per Diluted Share

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete per Diluted Share are non-GAAP financial measures.  We define Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete as net income (loss) attributable to U.S. Concrete, net of taxes, income tax expense (benefit) and certain other non-cash, non-recurring and/or unusual, non-operating items including, but not limited to: non-cash stock compensation expense, non-cash change in value of contingent consideration, impairment of assets, acquisition-related costs, officer transition expenses, purchase accounting adjustments for inventory, and realignment initiative costs.  We also adjust Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete for a normalized effective income tax rate of 27%. We define Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete per Diluted Share as Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete on a diluted per share basis.  Acquisition-related costs consist of fees and expenses for accountants, lawyers and other professionals incurred during the negotiation and closing of strategic acquisitions and certain acquired entities' management severance costs.  Acquisition-related costs do not include fees or expenses associated with post-closing integration of strategic acquisitions.

We have included Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete and Adjusted Net Income (Loss)  Attributable to U.S. Concrete per Diluted Share herein because they are used by investors for valuation and comparing our financial performance with the performance of other building material companies.  We use Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete per Diluted Share to monitor and compare the financial performance of our operations.  Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete per Diluted Share are not intended to be used as an alternative to any measure of our performance in accordance with GAAP.

The following tables reconcile (i) Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, which is net income (loss) attributable to U.S. Concrete and (ii) Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Attributable to U.S. Concrete per Diluted Share to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, which is net income (loss) attributable to U.S. Concrete per diluted share (in millions except per share amounts).

Adjusted Free Cash Flow

Adjusted Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure.  We define Adjusted Free Cash Flow as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment plus proceeds from the disposal of businesses and property, plant and equipment, eminent domain matter and property loss claims.  We consider Adjusted Free Cash Flow to be an important indicator of our ability to service our debt and generate cash for acquisitions and other strategic investments.  However, Adjusted Free Cash Flow is not intended to be used as an alternative to any measure of our liquidity in accordance with GAAP.  The following table reconciles Adjusted Free Cash Flow to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, which is net cash provided by operating activities (in millions).

Net Debt

Net Debt is a non-GAAP financial measure.  We define Net Debt as total debt, including current maturities and capital lease obligations, less cash and cash equivalents.  We believe that Net Debt is useful to investors as a measure of our financial position.  We use Net Debt to monitor and compare our financial position from period to period.  However, Net Debt is not intended to be used as an alternative to any measure of our financial position in accordance with GAAP.  The following table reconciles Net Debt to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, which is total debt, including current maturities and capital lease obligations (in millions).

Net Debt to Total Adjusted EBITDA

Net Debt to Total Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. We define Net Debt to Total Adjusted EBITDA as Net Debt divided by Total Adjusted EBITDA for the applicable last twelve-month period.  We define Total Adjusted EBITDA as our net income (loss), excluding the impact of income tax expense (benefit), depreciation, depletion and amortization, net interest expense and certain other non-cash, non-recurring and/or unusual, non-operating items including, but not limited to: non-cash stock compensation expense, non-cash change in value of contingent consideration, impairment of assets, acquisition-related costs, officer transition expenses, purchase accounting adjustments for inventory and realignment initiative costs. We believe that Net Debt to Total Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors as a measure of our financial position.  We use this measure to monitor and compare our financial position from period to period.  However, Net Debt to Total Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be used as an alternative to any measure of our financial position in accordance with GAAP.  The following table presents our calculation of Net Debt to Total Adjusted EBITDA and the most directly comparable GAAP ratio, which is total debt to last twelve months ("LTM") net income (in millions).
