    British American Tobacco has reached a deal to pay $49.4bn (£41bn) for the shares it does not already own in US rival Reynolds. The FTSE 100 firm, which makes Rothmans, Lucky Strike and Dunhill, said the takeover would give it greater access to emerging markets and the US while also boosting its presence in the growing e-cigarette sector. It had announced a $47bn cash and shares offer back in October for Reynolds - the second biggest player in the US with the Pall Mall and Camel brands in its stable - but that approach was rejected. BAT said the improved offer meant that Reynolds' shareholders would net $59.64 per share - $29.44 in cash and 0.5260 BAT ordinary shares - with the price representing a premium of 26% for investors. It already has a 42.2% stake in the US business having become ...

What is SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION? What does SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION mean? SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION meaning - SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION definition - SHAREHOLDER RESOLUTION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. With respect to public companies in the United States, Shareholder resolutions are proposals submitted by shareholders for a vote at the company's annual meeting. Typically, resolutions are opposed by the corporation's management, hence the insistence for a vote. For publicly held corporations in the United States, the submission and handling of resolutions is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Shareholders submit resolutions dealing primarily with corporate governance, such as executive compensation, or corporate social responsibility issues, such as global warming, labor relations, tobacco smoking, human rights, and animal welfare. Virtually all shareholder resolutions are non-binding (or "precatory," to use the legal term of art). In this sense the voting on these resolutions more closely resembles a poll than it does a (binding) referendum or plebiscite. Still, media coverage of voting on shareholder resolutions tends to focus on whether the proposal received a majority of votes, which occurs in a very small but increasing proportion of cases. According to SEC rules, defeated resolutions may be resubmitted only if they pass certain election hurdles (percentage of affirmative votes). Shareholder resolutions have been an important part of activist campaigns in several cases. For example, resolutions were effective at raising public awareness and thereby pressuring corporate management about investments in apartheid South Africa, nuclear power, and labor disputes. Given these results, resolutions have been spearheaded by several coordinating groups, including the AFL-CIO and the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility. Governmental and labor union pension funds also have become involved in supporting and submitting shareholder resolutions. A shareholder resolution to protest napalm manufacturer Dow Chemical resulted in a U.S. Supreme Court case called SEC v. MEDICAL COMMITTEE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS, 404 U.S. 403 (1972). The court decided that the case was moot due to Dow's agreeing to include the resolution on its proxy statement. The dissent argument by Justice Douglas encourages the SEC to facilitate more shareholder resolutions. "The philosophy of our times, I think, requires that such enterprises be held to a higher standard than that of the "morals of the marketplace" which exalts a single-minded, myopic determination to maximize profits as the traditional be-all and end-all of corporate concern."

U.K. Parliament enacted the rule in March. It will require all cigarettes sold in the country be packed in plain boxes by 2016. PMI has sued, contending the rules would "unlawfully deprive" it of its trademarks. (Video via U.K. Parliament) PMI says its branding — those red ribbons, for example — is too important a part of the market economy to just legislate away. PMI's general counsel wrote, "We respect the government's authority to regulate in the public interest, but wiping out trademarks simply goes too far." The U.K. Department of Health points out smoking causes some 80,000 deaths a year, making it the leading preventable cause of death in the country. In other words, the government is ready to fight this one. (Video via BBC) A spokesman told the BBC, "We will not allow public health policy to be held to ransom by the tobacco industry." The legal challenge is the latest front in a worldwide shift toward hard truths in tobacco marketing. (Video via Tobacco Free New York State) The new packaging will not only eliminate brand marks but also carry graphic warnings of the damage smoking can cause to the body. Australia's already using the new packaging and saw a 78 percent increase in calls to smoking hotlines. The World Health Organization says there aren't any other apparent factors that would cause that number to jump. U.S. regulators had plans to require similar graphic warnings until 2012, when the tobacco industry got the rules overturned in the D.C. Court of Appeals. And cigarette makers are still pushing back: In April, a group of companies filed suit against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration over rules that require them to submit any changes they make to their brand packaging for approval.

British American Tobacco has reached a deal to pay $49.4bn (£41bn) for the shares it does not already own in US rival Reynolds. The FTSE 100 firm, which makes Rothmans, Lucky Strike and Dunhill, said the takeover would give it greater access to emerging markets and the US while also boosting its presence in the growing e-cigarette sector. It had announced a $47bn cash and shares offer back in October for Reynolds - the second biggest player in the US with the Pall Mall and Camel brands in its stable - but that approach was rejected. BAT said the improved offer meant that Reynolds' shareholders would net $59.64 per share - $29.44 in cash and 0.5260 BAT ordinary shares - with the price representing a premium of 26% for investors. It already has a 42.2% stake in the US business having become a shareholder 13 years ago. BAT confirmed it was looking to finance the cash element of the purchase through a combination of "existing cash resources, new bank credit lines and the issuance of new bonds." It included, the company said, a $25bn "acquisition facility" with a syndicate of banks. The credit agency Moody's had warned in October it was putting the company's rating under review as it assessed the financing plans. BAT said on Tuesday it was committed to maintaining "a solid investment grade credit rating" and announced plans to limit debt on its balance sheet over three years. It said it expected the deal to deliver $400m of annual savings by the end of 2019 - with lower corporate costs contributing. That is usually a sign that job losses are on the way. BAT shares opened 1% higher. Its chief executive, Nicandro Durante, said of the deal: "We have been shareholders in Reynolds since 2004 and we have benefited from the success of the present management team's strategy, including its acquisition of Lorillard, which we supported with our own investment in 2015." He added: "It will create a stronger, global tobacco and NGP (next generations products) business with direct access for our products across the most attractive markets in the world. "We believe this will drive continued, sustainable profit growth and returns for shareholders long into the future." Shane MacGuill, head of tobacco at consultancy Euromonitor International, said the takeover was motivated by the lucrative US market. "BAT and Reynolds American have a strong existing relationship and while cost savings will be relatively modest the full access this acquisition would give BAT to the US - a lucrative, consolidated market with high barriers to entry - meaning it makes eminent sense."
