India: Votorantim Cimentos is rumoured to be selling its 75% stake in Gujarat-based Shree Digvijay Cement as part of its strategy to prioritise assets and reduce debt, according to ‘sources close to the company.’

The news comes as the company struggles amid rising competition among mid-sized Indian cement producers. It made a net profit of US$2.0m in the 12 months to 31 March 2018 from a turnover of US$63.5m. In 2012, before Votorantim took over the company, it made a net profit of US$1.2m from a turnover of US$64.2m.
