    CRH sees interest in potential sale of European distribution arm

    Irish building materials group CRH has had a lot of interest in its European distribution arm ahead of a decision in the next two to three months on whether to trigger a sale, Chief Executive Albert Manifold said on Thursday. Dublin-based CRH put the entire unit under review last year and Reuters reported on April 12 that CRH had hired Bank of America to launch the sale of the unit in a deal valuing the unit at about 2 billion euros (£1.7 billion) including debt. The sale process is expected to begin next month and has already drawn interest from buyout funds including Advent, Lone Star and CVC, sources familiar with the matter said.

    FTSE 100 slumps as oil price boost fades; KCOM jumps on buyout bid

    The FTSE 100 index lost 0.7 percent on its worst day in a month, but the midcaps gained 0.4 percent with gold miner Centamin leading gains after a strong quarterly update. The blue chips, which had touched a near seven-month high in the last session, lagged European markets where strong earnings from the likes of SAP and Credit Suisse kept a lid on losses. Bellwethers Shell and BP dropped from multi-month highs as crude prices retreated after having jumped to their 2019 highs this week as the United States pushed to tighten sanctions against Iran.

    CRH proposes further share buyback after strong first quarter

    Ireland's CRH announced an additional 350 million euros in share buybacks and forecast growth for the year after the building materials group reported a 7 percent rise in first-quarter sales on Wednesday. The world's second-biggest building materials supplier by market capitalisation launched its first share buyback programme in a decade last year and had completed the repurchase of 1 billion euros of shares by the end of March. The strong first quarter was driven by a 12 percent year-on-year increase in sales in its Europe Materials division, while sales in its Americas Materials and Building Products divisions rose by 4 and 5 percent, respectively.

    Appetite for construction helping cement maker LafargeHolcim weather downturn

    LafargeHolcim, the world's largest cement maker, forecast sales growth of 3 to 5 percent in 2019, as engineering projects and demand for new housing fuelled by low interest rates shield the construction industry from economic downturn. Chief Executive Jan Jenisch said he expected the upswing LafargeHolcim enjoyed in the second half of 2018 to continue into 2019. "In building materials we are in a very resilient market segment, so even if there is a downturn globally....we will manage quite well because we are participating in local markets," Jenisch told journalists.

    FTSE breaks six-day winning streak, fire burns Ocado

    The FTSE 100 edged 0.1 percent lower, while the more domestically-focused FTSE 250, which benefits from a strong pound, was up 0.4 percent. Sterling held steady after strong comments on Brexit from European Council President Donald Tusk and as investors mulled a report that UK cabinet ministers had discussed plans that would potentially postpone Britain's exit from the bloc to May 24. The gains in sterling were enough to drag blue-chip exporter stocks such as Diageo, British American Tobacco and Reckitt Benckiser lower.
