Mexican cement giant Cemex SA is buying Britishbased RMC Group PLC, the world’s biggest supplier of ready mixed concrete, in a deal worth some $4.15 billion (all funds U.S.).

The deal entitles RMC shareholders to receive $15.44 a share in cash, investment bank Goldman Sachs International said in a statement.

RMC directors have agreed to the acquisition, which is subject to approval by shareholders and regulators, Goldman Sachs said.
