CRH Identifies 45 Business Units For Disposal

CRH plc (ISE:CRG) is likely to divest 45 business units. The company stated: “In November 2013 we embarked on a comprehensive review to identify and focus on the businesses in our portfolio which offer the most attractive future returns and growth in the coming cycle. We have completed the initial phase of the review and have identified a total of 45 business units which will not meet our future returns objectives. An orderly disposal process is underway to dispose of these operations, which accounted for c.10% of the Group’s net assets at year-end 2013. With the next phase of the review underway, we have identified a further group of businesses, representing c.20% of our net assets, which require more detailed assessment; however, as noted above, in the light of current conditions and outlook, we do not anticipate further impairment charges to arise should a decision be made to exit any of these businesses.”

CRH plc (ISE:CRG) is seeking acquisitions. Maeve Carton, Finance Director of CRH, said, "The Group is in a very strong liquid position in terms of that cash balances available at the end of the year. And when you add to that the facilities that we have available of almost €2 billion of committed facilities, we've got €4.5 billion of liquidity available to the Group at the end of the year, which is both a strong position to be in; but also gives us great flexibility in terms of taking action, when we need to, in terms of acquisitions and development opportunities."
