This article reports that Meadow Valley Corp. prepares to test the market for shares of its valuable ready-mix concrete unit, the contracting and materials firm hopes to continue to tap another source of revenue. As of September 2004, it had $18.8 million in claims pending against public agencies, according to company filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Meadow Valley's portion of those claims is $10.5 million, with the remaining amounts due to prime contractors or subcontractors. The planned spin-off of 40% of its concrete subsidiary, Ready Mix Inc., would bring in another $12 million to the Phoenix, Arizona-based contractor.
