Vulcan Looks Ahead

RR050219 VulcanLogoAug. 4, 2020 – Vulcan Materials released its second-quarter report and aggregates sales were up. Regarding the company's outlook, Tom Hill, chairman and chief executive officer stated, "Although the economic environment is showing signs of improvement, the pandemic's effect on demand and the broader economy remains unclear. As a result, we are not reinstating earnings guidance at this time. While demand is subject to market fluctuations outside of our control, we remain focused on those things we can control such as our cost and our pricing discipline, both of which help to compound our unit margins. Our year-to-date results demonstrate those capabilities. On a trailing-12-month basis our cash gross profit in aggregates is nearly $7 per ton. Our operating plans are underpinned by our four strategic initiatives (Commercial and Operational Excellence, Logistics Innovation and Strategic Sourcing), a healthy balance sheet, strong liquidity, and the engagement of our people."
