The purchase price is $400 million, subject to customary post-closing adjustments. Eagle expects that the acquisition will increase its US annual cement capacity by approximately 20% to nearly 6 million tons.

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of calendar 2016, or shortly thereafter.
