Dangote Eyes PPC

A merger between PPC Ltd (JSE:PPC) and Dangote Cement Plc (NGSE:DANGCEM) would involve fewer complexities and implementation risks than an Afrisam-PPC merger, PPC Chairman Peter Nelson said on September 15, 2017. Nelson said it was difficult to compare the two offers, but PPC had a far less complex overlap with Dangote Cement in South Africa compared to Afrisam. Nelson said Dangote Cement's rest of Africa assets were attractive and complementary to what PPC had established. This week, Dangote Cement told the PPC board in a statement to the Nigerian Stock Exchange that it would be interested in buying the group's "entire share capital".
