Cemex last month refinanced much of the debt that has hindered the company since it bought Rinker Materials for $15 billion in 2007. The Mexican concrete and cement giant refinanced $15 billion in short-term debt with 75 banks and noteholders. Final payment is due in 2014, giving Cemex breathing room. In addition to the Rinker debt, Cemex has struggled during the recession that hit U.S. housing particularly hard. Visit www.cemex.com.
