Reliance Infra cement business could go to UltraTech

Published by
World Cement,

According to reports, it looks like UltraTech Cement is in line to acquire Reliance Infrastructure’s cement business, being sold as part of a business restructure. UltraTech Cement, part of the Aditya Birla Group, is already one of India’s largest cement companies. The acquisition would add a further 5.8 million t to its operational capacity, which is in keeping with UltraTech’s previously stated goal of achieving 100 million t of cement capacity by 2020. UltraTech’s current capacity is around 69 million t, and it has been picking up other assets being divested by debt-laden Indian companies, as well as seeking merger opportunities such as that with Century Textiles that will add 13 million t of cement capacity.

The assets for sale by Reliance Infrastructure are estimated to be worth some Rs.5000 – 5500 crore. UltraTech has denied the reports, which have been cited as coming from an unnamed source.
