CMC CEO adopts stock trading plan

Irving, TX— Commercial Metals Company announced that Stanley A. Rabin, chairman and chief executive officer, has executed a prearranged systematic personal stock trading plan pursuant to, and intended to comply with, Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and with CMC’s policies with respect to insider sales.

Rule 10b5-1 permits officers and directors of public companies to establish prearranged written plans for selling specified amounts of stock over a predetermined period of time. The plans may be entered into only when the insider is not in possession of material, nonpublic information and may be modified or revoked only in limited circumstances. The plans permit the gradual and orderly diversification of investment portfolios for estate planning.

Rabin has directed an unaffiliated broker to sell up to 180,000 shares of CMC common stock over a period of approximately 36 months. The sales, to be made at quarterly intervals commencing no earlier than February 10, 2006, are part of Rabin’s personal estate planning goals.

If the sale of all the 180,000 shares under the trading plan is completed, Rabin would continue to own beneficially more than 1,070,000 shares of Commercial Metals Company common stock including existing options or equivalents exercisable within 60 days.
