    Big spending building materials maker CRH on lookout for more deals

    Ireland's CRH, the world's third-largest building materials group by market capitalisation, said on Tuesday it has capacity on its balance sheet for more deals, after a spending spree this year. It said it is refocusing on North America and announced it had spent $750 million on cement acquisitions in Florida, making it the largest building materials company in the state. CRH recently secured a deal to buy U.S. cement maker Ash Grove Cement Co for $3.5 billion to strengthen its grip in North America, and last week it joined the race for South African cement maker PPC.

    Ash Grove approves sale to CRH after Summit drop out

    A majority of Ash Grove Cement's (ASHG.PK) shareholders approved the sale of the U.S. cement maker to Ireland's CRH (CRH.I) on Friday after a rival bid from Summit Materials (SUM.N) failed to materialise. Summit, a U.S. construction firm set up in 2009 by former CRH executives, attempted to outbid their former colleagues earlier this month with a preliminary bid valued at $3.7 (2.80 billion pounds) -$3.8 billion, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters. Kansas-based Ash Grove, whose board had already unanimously approved CRH's $3.5 billion bid, did not name the rival suitor when it extended the period during which it was able to look for other potential buyers to Oct. 20.

    European shares brush off Catalan crisis with another weekly gain

    European shares rose for the fourth consecutive week on Friday as confidence over the region's economic recovery outweighed worries over the Catalonia crisis, whose impact remained confined to Spanish equities. While Spain's IBEX ended a tumultuous week down 1.9 percent after a banned referendum last weekend in the wealthy Spanish region overwhelmingly backed independence, the pan-European STOXX 600 index fell 0.4 percent on the day but posted a five-day gain of 0.3 percent. Redemptions in Spanish stock funds hit their highest level in nearly three years over the past week as investors became alarmed by the confrontation between Madrid and Catalonia, EPFR Global data showed.

    European stocks quiet ahead of U.S. jobs data, Spanish banks dip

    Europe's major benchmarks were set to end a tumultuous week on a slightly softer note, with investors' focus turning from a separatist crisis in Catalonia to U.S. jobs data expected later in the day. The pan-European STOXX 600 dipped 0.1 percent in early trading, but remained on track for its fourth straight weekly gains.
