North America: Australia-based Boral has signed an agreement with a subsidiary of Westlake Chemical Corporation for the sale of its North American Building Products business. The value of the sale is US$2.15bn and the proceeds will increase Boral’s surplus capital, enabling it to reduce its net debt target to US$0.98m from US$1.13m. Boral’s North American Building Products manufactures and supplies cladding, roof tiles, windows and other light building products for residential and commercial markets

Under its on-going review of its North American Fly Ash business, Boral is now considering a divestment, a joint venture or a strategic alliance formation for the subsidiary. It said that it expects to decide by August 2021.
