Following the merger of Holcim and Lafarge (HCMLF, HCMLY), the two companies are divesting certain cement and building-aggregate plants, and both KKR and CVC Capital partners have met with bankers to talk about a deal, according to Bloomberg.

The two could go it alone or form a larger consortium, according to the report, which notes talks are only in preliminary stages at this point.
