BME Group (BME) and the shareholders of BVP-Socca announce that they have entered exclusive negotiations to acquire the shares of BVP-Socca. Simultaneously, BVP-Socca announces having entered into exclusive negotiations to sell their General Building Materials (GBM) activities to an independent Bigmat affiliate, allowing BME to solely retain the Infrastructure Merchanting activities.
