Lafarge And Holcim Receives Bid Approach For Its Assets

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.

Lafarge And Holcim Decides The Assets For Sale

Lafarge S.A. (ENXTPA:LG) and Holcim Ltd. (SWX:HOLN) have finalized the list of assets to be sold. The list has been prepared after a constructive discussion with the European Commission in the pre-notification period and throughout Phase I investigation. The only exception is a very slight change in France assets. Lafarge and Holcim continue to actively pursue negotiations for the sale of these assets with potential buyers. The buyers have to be pre-approved by the European Commission. The sale is subject to completion of the merger, including a successful public exchange offering and approval by Holcim's shareholders in the second quarter of 2015.

Bain Capital Reportedly May Buy Cement Assets From Holcim And Lafarge

Bain Capital, LLC is looking to buy cement assets from Holcim Ltd. (SWX:HOLN) and Lafarge S.A. (ENXTPA:LG), according to confidential sources cited by Bloomberg.
