Against this backdrop, we 57 reiterate our expectation for secondhalf EBITDA to be somewhat ahead 53 of last year (H2 2013: €1.08 billion), resulting in expected full year EBITDA growth of c.10 in 2014 (2013: €1.475 billion) 133 162 64 Since that date, the Group's trading performance continues to be in line with the Board's expectations and we expect EBITDA for the full year to be not less than €1.625 billion 107 with full year revenues of €18.9 billion. We expect yearend net debt to be approximately 79 €2.5 billion (2013: €3.0 billion), with a net debt/EBITDA ratio of approximately 1.5x times. 139 218 127 th CRH 2014 Results will be announced on Thursday, 26 Feb 2015 44 30 30 32 54 107 Summary 25 88 The transaction 136 • 1 global transaction … 4 regional platforms … quality portfolio of assets 203 203 • Strong strategic fit … become global 3 in building materials 203 • Attractive valuation … right point in the cycle 168 • Options to involve partners in certain regions … being explored 57 53 Valuecreating acquisition 133 162 64 • Earnings and returns accretive … in first full year post completion • Significant synergy potential … for NewCo and CRH 107 79 139 • Continuous portfolio management … efficient use of capital 218 127 Bringing returns back to peak 44 31 31 32 54 107 Contact us 25 88 136 CRH plc 203 Investor Relations 203 Belgard Castle 203 Clondalkin Dublin 22 168 Ireland 57 53 Phone: + 353 1 404 1000 Fax: + 353 1 404 1007 133 Email: ircrh.com 162 64 Website: www.crh.com 107 79 139 218 127 44 32
