Acquisition of Italcementi finalized – new Board of Directors established
On 12 October 2016, HeidelbergCement purchased the remaining Italcementi shares that had not been tendered in the mandatory tender offer. Therefore, HeidelbergCement is now the sole shareholder of Italcementi and owns 100% of the share capital. Italcementi shares were delisted from the Italian Stock Exchange on the same day.
In a shareholder meeting on 19 October 2016 a new Board of Directors was established for Italcementi. The new members are Luca Sabelli (Chairman), Dominik von Achten (Executive Vice President), Lorenz Näger (Executive Vice President) and Roberto Callieri (CEO).
HeidelbergCement is one of the world’s largest integrated manufacturers of building materials with leading market positions in aggregates, cement, and ready-mixed concrete. Following the acquisition of Italcementi, the company employs some 63,000 people at more than 3,000 locations in around 60 countries.
