lafarge sa (LG) Key Developments

Ramco Cements, JSW Cement Reportedly Bid For Lafarge's Assets

The Ramco Cements Limited (BSE:500260) and JSW Cement Limited may bid for French company Lafarge S.A. (ENXTPA:LG)'s cement units in Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh in a deal likely to be worth at least $600 million, four people familiar with the development said. CRH plc (ISE:CRG) of Ireland and HeidelbergCement India Limited (BSE:500292) are already evaluating these assets, Mint reported on April 3, 2015.

HeidelbergCement And CRH Reportedly Eyeing Lafarge And Holcim Assets

Lafarge S.A.’s (ENXTPA:LG) and Holcim Ltd.’s (SWX:HOLN) assets may be acquired. According to two people close to the matter, HeidelbergCement India Limited (BSE:500292) and CRH plc (ISE:CRG), among others, are keen to acquire assets likely to be put on the block by Lafarge and Holcim. UltraTech Cement Limited (BSE:532538) may also make a bid, but may not be able to do so because of a rider imposed by India's anti-trust regulator the Competition Commission of India (CCI). Holcim and Lafarge have been asked by CCI to sell some assets in eastern India to eliminate anti-competition concerns. O.P. Puranmalka, Managing Director of UltraTech Cement said, “We have to study the CCI order.” He added, “There are no more quality assets left in eastern India. Therefore, UltraTech is planning a mix of organic and inorganic expansion.” According to the news report, An UltraTech spokesperson declined to comment on a specific question regarding the firm's inorganic expansion plans, Heidelberg Cement declined to comment, while spokesperson for CRH said, “It's the company's longstanding policy not to comment on speculation regarding acquisitions or divestments.”

The Competition Commission of India Clears Proposes Merger of Lafarge and Holcim

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has cleared the proposed merger of Lafarge and Holcim, which will create the large cement company by manufacturing capacity and sales. The CCI approval, however, came with a rider - both the firms will have to divest two cement plants to address monopoly concerns. CCI has decided that a divestiture of Lafarge's Jojobera plant in Jharkhand and the company's integrated unit at Sonadih in Chhattisgarh will be most effective in eliminating the concerns. The divestment will cut down around 5 mtpa from the combined capacity of both Holcim and Lafarge. The competition regulator will also appoint a monitoring agency to oversee compliance to the conditions put out by it to ensure that the merger does not hit competition. Holcim and Lafarge had announced a global merger on April 7, 2014, and applied for approval from regulators in more than a dozen countries. The modification to the proposed deal aims to maintain the existing level of competition in the relevant markets in India. Both the companies will have to go back to CCI after modifications within six months and in case they are not able to find a suitable buyer for the plants, they will get a second divestment period. CCI has also asked the two firms to give full information regarding divestment products to potential purchasers, so as to enable them to undertake reasonable due diligence.
