According to information gathered by Reuters, Brazilian cement manufacturers CSN Cimentos (subsidiary of steelmaker CSN SA), Cimentos Mizu, and Cimento Apodi (in which Titan Cement International has a stake), have made bids for Brazilian assets that LafargeHolcim Ltd has put up for sale.

Offers were also made by Brazil's largest cement producers, Votorantime Cimentos SA and Intercement Brasil SA, but due to antitrust regulations, they were only able to bid for parts of the business.

Votorantim reportedly made a bid for units in the northeastern region, and Intercement bid for units in the southeastern states of Rio de Janeiro, Espirito Santo and Minas Gerais.

Sources speaking to Reuters on the condition of anonymity stated that Lafarge expects to generate proceeds of US$1 – 1.5 billion from the sale of its assets in the country.

Any purchase is subject to approval by Brazilian antitrust watchdog CADE.
