Lafarge sells aggregates assets
in USA 

Lafarge announces it has signed binding agreements for the sale of 6 aggregates quarries in Georgia (USA) for a total enter­prise value of 160 million US$ (123 Million €). These assets represent less than 1 % of Lafarge’s sales in North America in 2011. The transactions are subject to relevant approvals.
With these divestments in a region where Lafarge is present only through its aggregates operations, the Group pursues its strategy of focusing on the most promising geographic areas where it has integrated positions. The US market remains a priority for the Group where it intends to accelerate the development of its innovative products and services.
