BIRMINGHAM, Ala: Vulcan Materials Company (NYSE: VMC), the nation's largest producer of construction aggregates, today announced results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Financial and Operating Highlights:

Total revenues increased sharply from the prior year driven by double-digit growth in the Company's legacy business as well as the addition of U.S. Concrete (USCR) operations

Gross profit increased $48 million, or 12 percent, to $446 million

Aggregates gross profit increased $29 million, or 8 percent, to $402 million

Non-aggregates gross profit increased $19 million, or 78 percent, to $44 million

Includes $74 million of higher energy-related costs compared to the prior year's quarter

Earnings attributable to Vulcan from continuing operations were $1.50 per diluted share

Adjusted EBITDA increased 11 percent to $450 million

Includes an approximate $20 million negative impact related to the Company's aggregates operations in Mexico that were unexpectedly and arbitrarily shut down in May

Average selling prices increased in each product line, helping to offset inflationary pressures

Aggregates pricing increased 9 percent (10 percent mix-adjusted)

Average price for asphalt and concrete increased 19 percent and 14 percent, respectively

Shipments increased year-over-year in each major product line, reflecting construction activity consistent with the Company's expectations as well as the contribution from acquisitions

Tom Hill, Vulcan Materials' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Our teams continued to execute well and delivered another quarter of solid earnings growth amidst a challenging backdrop. We are well on our way to delivering another year of double-digit earnings growth.

"We increased our aggregates gross profit by 11 percent during the trailing-twelve months despite ongoing inflation and other external headwinds. Robust growth in aggregates pricing and a relentless focus on operating disciplines will help us carry this momentum forward," continued Hill. "Our asphalt pricing actions, which began late last year, are increasingly offsetting sharply higher liquid asphalt costs, and we remain focused on growing our gross profit in our Asphalt segment. In concrete, leading indicators for private nonresidential construction activity and a favorable pricing environment will support earnings growth in 2022."
