Lafarge And Holcim Receives Bid Approach For Its Assets
Dec 16 14
Lafarge S.A. (ENXTPA:LG) and Holcim Ltd. (SWX:HOLN) are planning to sell €6 billion worth of assets. The three groups expected to hand in binding bids by a mid January 2014 are CRH Medical Corporation (TSX:CRH), The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX), Cinven and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, a team consisting of CVC Limited (ASX:CVC) and sovereign wealth funds Abu Dhabi Investment Authority and GIC Pte. Ltd. Lafarge and Holcim will sell overlapping assets worth 12% of combined revenues to secure European Union antitrust approval for their merger earlier this week. Holcim said in November 2014 that it has more than 60 tentative bids from industry interests and private equity firms for the assets. Italcementi SpA (BIT:IT) and Sabanci Cimento Group are interested only in some of the assets, the sources said. "The seller is likely to prefer a sale of the complete bundle to one buyer, as a divestment in pieces bears the risk of being left with unattractive, unsellable parts," one of the sources said. HeidelbergCement AG (DB:HEI) and CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE:CX) said that they are not interested in the assets. BC Partners, Advent International Corporation and Temasek Capital Management Pte Ltd as well as Bain Capital Ltd and Onex Corporation (TSX:OCX) have also shelved their preparatory work, sources familiar with the deal said. A Lafarge spokeswoman said: "The sales process is progressing well. Holcim and Lafarge have established a clear process for their divestments and we expect final bids early 2015." Onex, Sabanci and GIC were not immediately available for comment. The other companies and investors declined to comment.
