On Tuesday morning, April 14, 2015, Holcim announced the names of the candidates proposed to join the Board of Directors of LafargeHolcim after closing. The Board of Directors will comprise 14 members, 7 each designated by Holcim and Lafarge.

After this announcement, Holcim received a proposal in writing of its shareholder Eurocement to elect Filaret Galchev to the Board of Directors of the combined company. This proposal came too late to be considered by the Board of Directors of Holcim for inclusion into the agenda of the Extraordinary General Meeting on May 8, 2015.

The Extraordinary General Meeting will take place as planned with the announced agenda items, in order to allow for a public exchange offer for the shares of Lafarge to be closed before summer break.
