crh plc (CRH) Key Developments

AEV Eyeing Lafarge Local Operations

Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc. (PSE:AEV) (AEV) may invest in Lafarge Republic, Inc. (PSE:LRI) and others. Aboitiz Equity announced that it has entered into an exclusivity agreement with a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding with CRH plc (ISE:CRG) to potentially invest with CRH in the acquisition of the majority of the shares of Lafarge Republic, Luzon Continental Land Corporation, and Lafarge Cement Services (Philippines), Inc. AEV’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Erramon I. Aboitiz said, “AEV and CRH are in exclusive negotiations whereby AEV may potentially invest with CRH in the acquisition of four Luzon-based cement manufacturing plants located in Bulacan, Norzagaray, Teresa, and Batangas; a plant in Danao City, Cebu, and associated limestone quarries. We are very pleased with the prospect of entering this new business, which is a solid opportunity that will support our thrust to develop infrastructure as one of our core businesses and create a more diversified income source for AEV. Together with CRH, we aim to take an already successful Philippine cement operations and management team to greater heights, as the country’s need for quality cement will continue to grow in line with its resurgent economy and infrastructure sector.” Conclusion of the potential transaction would be subject to the successful completion of the merger between Lafarge S.A. and Holcim, and also approval by the Boards of both CRH and AEV. Evercore Partners Inc. (NYSE:EVR) is acting as financial advisor in the potential transaction.

CRH plc Announces Retirement of John W. Kennedy and Dan O'Connor from the Board

CRH plc advised that Mr. John W. Kennedy and Mr. Dan O'Connor retired from the board at the conclusion of the annual general meeting on May 7, 2015.

CRH plc Announces Interim Management Statement Results for the First Four Months Ended May 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the First Half and Second Half of 2015; Provides Capex Guidance for the Year 2015

CRH plc announced interim management statement results for the first four months ended May 2015. For the period, the company's group sales from continuing operations were up about 2.5% compared to the same period in 2014, and this is primarily driven by continued positive momentum in the Americas and an improving European performance. However, due to more normalized weather conditions this year and a very difficult comparison to 2014, its like-for-like sales were up 10% on the previous year. The company is experiencing a small 2% decline in sales for the first 4 months of 2015. Overall, group EBITDA from continuing operations in the first half of 2015, excluding divestments and foreign exchange, is expected to be close to 10% ahead of the EUR 460 million EBITDA delivered in 2014. Given the anticipated increase in economic activity and the positive effect of its cost savings program and assuming no systemic shocks, the company expects second half EBITDA from continuing operations to be ahead of last year. The company expects capex to be above 80% for 2015.
