DUBLIN, IRELAND / ACCESSWIRE / September 25, 2023 / CRH plc, the leading provider of building materials solutions, is pleased to announce the successful transition of its primary listing to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) today which marks a historic milestone for the Group.
The Group will retain a standard listing on the London Stock Exchange.
We believe a US primary listing will bring increased commercial, operational and acquisition opportunities for our business, further accelerating our successful integrated solutions strategy and delivering even higher levels of profitability, returns and cash for our shareholders.
North America represents approximately 75% of Group EBITDA and the US is expected to be a key driver of future growth for CRH due to continued economic expansion, a growing population and significant construction needs.
As the leading building materials solutions business in North America, CRH is uniquely positioned to capitalise on the strong growth opportunities in the US construction market, underpinned by long-term structural tailwinds from federal, state and municipal funding support.
Albert Manifold, Chief Executive of CRH, said: "Today marks an important milestone in CRH's development which will enable us to fully participate in the significant growth opportunities that lie ahead for our business".
To mark the transition of CRH's primary listing to the NYSE, the Group will host an investor presentation in New York later today. A live webcast of the event will commence at 12.30pm US Eastern Time and registration details are available on crh.com.
