Holcim AG (HCMLY.PK,HCMLF.PK), formerly known as LafargeHolcim, said that it has agreed to sell its business in Brazil to CSN or Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional for an enterprise value of $1.025 billion.

The sale includes Holcim's five integrated cement plants, four grinding stations, six aggregates sites and 19 ready-mix concrete facilities.
