MONTERREY, MEXICO, March 28, 2022 – CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX) announced today that it has commenced a tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) to purchase up to U.S.$500,000,000 (the “Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount”) of the outstanding 5.200% Notes due 2030 (the “2030 Notes”), 5.450% Notes due 2029 (the “2029 Notes”) and 3.875% Notes due 2031 (the “2031 Notes” and, together with the 2030 Notes and the 2029 Notes, the “Notes”), in each case issued by CEMEX, subject to purchase in accordance with the acceptance priority level for each series of Notes (the “Acceptance Priority Level”) and priority for early tenders and possible proration as described in CEMEX’s Offer to Purchase dated March 28, 2022.

The following table summarizes the material pricing terms for the Tender Offer:

The Notes will be purchased in accordance with the Acceptance Priority Level (in numerical priority order) as set forth in the table above, and proration of the 2030 Notes, 2029 Notes or 2031 Notes will be determined in accordance with the terms of the Tender Offer. If CEMEX purchases any Notes in the Tender Offer, Notes tendered at or prior to 8:00 a.m., New York City time, on April 11, 2022 (the “Early Tender Date”), will be accepted for purchase in priority to other Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date even if such Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date have a higher acceptance priority than Notes tendered prior to the Early Tender Date. If at the Early Tender Date the aggregate principal amount of Notes validly tendered exceeds the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, CEMEX reserves the right, at its option, not to accept any additional Notes tendered by holders of Notes after the Early Tender Date.


If Notes are validly tendered such that the aggregate principal amount tendered exceeds the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, CEMEX will accept for purchase only the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount of such Notes, and such Notes will be purchased in accordance with the Acceptance Priority Level, so that all such Notes having a higher Acceptance Priority Level will be accepted for purchase before any tendered Notes having a lower Acceptance Priority Level are accepted, subject to the priority for early tenders. On any given settlement date, if only a portion of the tendered 2030 Notes, 2029 Notes or 2031 Notes, as applicable, may be accepted for purchase consistent with the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount, the aggregate principal amount of such Notes accepted for purchase will be prorated based upon the aggregate principal amount of 2030 Notes, 2029 Notes or 2031 Notes, as applicable, that have been validly tendered and not yet accepted for purchase in the Tender Offer (with appropriate adjustment to avoid purchases of Notes in a principal amount other than U.S.$200,000 and an integral multiple of U.S.$1,000 in excess thereof), provided that in no event shall CEMEX be obligated to purchase an aggregate principal amount of Notes exceeding the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount. Notes tendered prior to the Early Tender Date will have priority over those Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date notwithstanding any acceptance priority that may exist.

Holders of Notes that are validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will be entitled to receive the applicable Total Consideration, which includes an early tender premium equal to U.S.$30.00 per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes (the “Early Tender Premium”). Holders who tender Notes after the Early Tender Date but at or prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on April 25, 2022 and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will be entitled to receive only the applicable Base Consideration per U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes, which amount is equal to the applicable Total Consideration less the Early Tender Premium. Holders who validly tender their Notes in the Tender Offer and whose Notes are accepted for purchase will also receive accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes from the last interest payment date preceding the applicable settlement date to, but not including, such settlement date. Holders of Notes who tender their Notes before the withdrawal deadline, which is 8:00 a.m., New York City time, on April 11, 2022, unless extended, may not withdraw their Notes after the withdrawal deadline, unless otherwise required by law. Holders who tender their Notes after the withdrawal deadline may not withdraw their Notes, unless otherwise required by law.

If, at the Early Tender Date, the principal amount of the Notes validly tendered exceeds the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount (i.e., the Tender Offer is “fully subscribed”), CEMEX has the option not to accept any additional Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date even if such Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date have a higher Acceptance Priority Level than Notes tendered prior to the Early Tender Date.

CEMEX reserves the right, subject to applicable law, to extend, withdraw or terminate the Tender Offer, increase or decrease the Aggregate Maximum Tender Amount or otherwise amend the terms of the Tender Offer.

The Tender Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on April 25, 2022 and is subject to, and conditioned upon, the satisfaction or waiver of the general conditions described in the Offer to Purchase. CEMEX intends to finance the purchase of the Notes tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer, and to pay all fees and expenses in connection therewith, with available cash and/or borrowings under the revolving tranche of CEMEX’s credit agreement, dated October 29, 2021 (as amended and/or restated from time to time).

CEMEX has retained BofA Securities, Inc. (“BofA Securities”) and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC (“J.P. Morgan Securities”) to act as Dealer Managers for the Tender Offer. Holders with questions about the Tender Offer can contact BofA Securities at +1(888) 292-0070 (toll free) or +1(646) 855-8988 (collect) and J.P. Morgan Securities at +1(886) 846-2874 (toll free) or +1(212) 834-7279 (collect).
