Vulcan Agrees to Buy Florida Rock for $4.6 Billion http://tinyurl.com/2lq8b4
Vulcan Materials Co., the biggest U.S. producer of highway construction materials, will acquire Florida Rock Industries Inc. for $4.6 billion to add gravel reserves and concrete-making capability in southeast states.
Florida Rock shareholders will receive cash and stock valued at $68.03 a share, 45 percent higher than the closing price on Feb. 16, Birmingham, Alabama-based Vulcan said in a statement yesterday. The payment will be 70 percent in cash.Vulcan is offering an ``unprecedented'' 12.6 times Florida Rock's projected 2007 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, ABN's Roger said.
``I realize that a premium of this size is at the higher end of industry comparisons,'' Vulcan Chief Executive Officer Donald James, 64, said on a conference call today. ``Great companies and great opportunities don't come cheap. Florida Rock is well managed, is in high growth markets and has superior long-term assets and reserves.''
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services today lowered its corporate credit rating on Vulcan to A- from A+, and placed the ratings on review for a possible downgrade. Vulcan will issue $3.2 billion in new debt for the purchase, James said, bringing total debt to $3.7 billion, or a debt-to-capital ratio of 51 percent.
Vulcan will lower its debt-to-capital ratio to 35 percent to 40 percent within three years and intends to maintain an investment grade rating, he said

buying a company that is mainly dependent on the florida real estate market! with a 46% premium would lead me to the conclusion to sell vulcan shares.
