Israel: CRH mulls disposal of Nesher cement stake
Published: 24 March 2014


CRH Group is considering the sale of its 25 per cent stake in Mashav, the holding company for Nesher cement, Israel, which the Irish group acquired in 2001, reports The Sunday Independent.

Newly arrived CEO, Albert Manifold, is carrying out a comprehensive review of the company’s businesses and has so far identified 45 that will be put up for sale. In a recent Annual Report filed in the US, CRH wrote of the 25 per cent stake in Mashav, prompting speculation that CRH will seek to offload the holding in the near future.
