Holcim is selling shareholdings

As a consequence of the nationalization of Holcim Venezuela, the long-term economics of supplying Holcim produced clinker and cement to the grinding stations and terminals in Panama and the Caribbean is no longer viable. For this reason, effective July 30, 2009, Holcim is selling its shareholding in Panama, the Dominican Republic and Haiti as well as terminals in the Caribbean to its long-time joint venture partner Argos for 157 million US$ (CHF 168 million). The Colombian based building materials group has sufficient export capacity in the region.
