HeidelbergCement reduces its stake in Ciments du Maroc

HeidelbergCement announced the sale of around 1.1 million shares representing 7.8 % of Ciments du Maroc’s share capital for an aggregate amount of approximately € 140 million. The shares were sold to certain Moroccan institutional investors through an off-market block trade. Following this transaction, Heidelberg-Cement will retain a controlling stake of 54.6 % in Ciments du Maroc and continue to fully consolidate the company.

“HeidelbergCement is fully committed to remain the long-term majority shareholder of Ciments du Maroc, a key strategic asset within the Group’s portfolio”, said Dr. Bernd Scheifele, Chairman of the Managing Board of HeidelbergCement. “The reduction in shareholding is part of our action plan to optimise our portfolio and generate cash in order to speed up deleveraging. We continue to be well on track to reach our target of € 1.5 billion of disposal proceeds by the end of 2020.”
