US: Eagle Materials has received clearance from the Federal Trade Commission for its November 2019 acquisition of Kosmos Cement, which operates the 1.7Mt/yr integrated Louisville plant in Kentucky, as well as raw materials reserves and seven cement terminals, from Mexico-based Cemex and Italian Buzzi Unicem for US$665m. Eagle Materials board chair Mike Nicolais said the acquisition was ‘timely in light of our plans to separate our Heavy Materials and Light Materials businesses into two independent, publicly traded corporations.’ It will pay using existing funds and a loan withdrawn for the purpose.
