DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Summit Materials, Inc. (NYSE:SUM, “Summit”) is pleased to announce it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Boxley Materials Company (“Boxley”). Boxley is a vertically integrated construction materials company founded in 1892 and based near Roanoke, Virginia. The transaction is expected to close in mid-March, pending expiration of the standard regulatory review period.
Together with the American Materials Company (“AMC”) acquisition announced on February 11, 2016 in conjunction with Summit’s fourth quarter 2015 earnings release, Boxley forms a strong aggregates-based growth platform for Summit in the attractive Virginia and Carolinas region. The combined business comprises 11 aggregates locations with 0.5 billion tons of reserves with annual sales volume of approximately 5 million tons, along with four asphalt plants, four ready-mix concrete plants and one architectural products manufacturing facility. The combined investment is approximately $250 million which represents a ~8.5x trailing EBITDA multiple inclusive of expected synergies.
Summit CEO, Tom Hill, commented, “These high-quality businesses are a perfect fit with our materials-based acquisition strategy, increase our geographical diversity and create a platform of scale in the high-growth Mid-Atlantic area. Both possess market leading positions and experienced and entrepreneurial management who will continue to be led by Ab Boxley at Boxley and Tim Bizzell at AMC. We are very excited to team up with these high-caliber companies and look forward to their continued growth.”
