5 April 2012









The Independent Committee of Readymix plc (the "Company") announces that the required majorities of Readymix Shareholders voted today at the Court Meeting and the EGM in favour of the Scheme and to implement the Acquisition.

Readymix will now apply to the Irish High Court to confirm the date for the Court Hearing to sanction the Scheme and to confirm the Capital Reduction. It is expected that the Court Hearing will be held on 8 May 2012, as previously announced. If, at that hearing, the High Court sanctions the Scheme without modification, it is expected that the Scheme and the Acquisition will become effective shortly thereafter. Further announcements will be made in due course.

Readymix Shareholders are notified that it is intended that, subject to the Scheme becoming effective in accordance with its terms and subject to applicable requirements of the Irish Stock Exchange, the listing of the Readymix Shares on the official list of the Irish Stock Exchange and admission of the Readymix Shares to trading on the Main Securities Market of the Irish Stock Exchange will be cancelled. It is intended that such cancellations take effect on the date on which the Scheme becomes effective (the "Effective Date") which is anticipated to be 9 May 2012  or as soon as is practicable thereafter. The last day of dealing in Readymix Shares on the Irish Stock Exchange will be the last Business Day before the Effective Date.

The results of the resolutions put to the Court Meeting and the EGM held today, 5 April 2012 were as follows:

Definitions used in the Scheme Document dated 13 March 2012 have the same meaning when used in this announcement, unless the context requires otherwise.





The directors of Readymix plc accept responsibility for the information contained in this announcement. To the best of the knowledge and belief of the directors of Readymix plc (who have taken all reasonable care to ensure that such is the case), the information contained in this announcement is in accordance with the facts and does not omit anything likely to affect the import of such information.


Dealing Disclosure Requirements


Under the provisions of Rule 8.3 of the Irish Takeover Panel Act, 1997, Takeover Rules 2007, as amended (the "Irish Takeover Rules"), if any person is, or becomes, 'interested' (directly or indirectly) in, one per cent., or more of any class of 'relevant securities' of Readymix, all 'dealings' in any 'relevant securities' of Readymix (including by means of an option in respect of, or a derivative referenced to, any such 'relevant securities') must be publicly disclosed by not later than 3.30 pm (GMT) on the business day following the date of the relevant transaction. This requirement will continue until the 'offer period' ends. If two or more persons co-operate on the basis of any agreement, either express or tacit, either oral or written, to acquire an 'interest' in 'relevant securities' of Readymix, they will be deemed to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3 of the Irish Takeover Rules.


Under the provisions of Rule 8.1 of the Irish Takeover Rules, all 'dealings' in 'relevant securities' of Readymix by Readymix or CEMEX or by any of its 'associates' must also be disclosed by no later than 12.00 noon (GMT) on the business day following the date of the relevant transaction.


A disclosure table, giving details of the companies in whose 'relevant securities' 'dealings' should be disclosed can be found on the Panel's website at


'Interests in securities' arise, in summary, when a person has long economic exposure, whether conditional or absolute, to changes in the price of securities. In particular, a person will be treated as having an 'interest' by virtue of the ownership or control of securities, or by virtue of any option in respect of, or derivative referenced to, securities.  


Terms in quotation marks are defined in the Irish Takeover Rules, which can also be found on the Irish Takeover Panel's website. If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you are required to disclose a dealing under Rule 8, please consult the Panel's website at or contact the Panel on telephone number +353 (0)1 678 9020; fax number +353 (0)1 678 9289.
