US: Martin Marietta Materials' US$2.7bn purchase of Texas Industries has been approved by the US Justice Department under a settlement that requires asset sales. Martin Marietta will sell rail yards in Texas and a quarry in Oklahoma to maintain competition in the market for gravel, sand and crushed stone.

"Without the divestiture obtained by the antitrust division, customers would have likely faced higher prices as a result of this acquisition," said Bill Baer of the US Justice Department.
