Increased cigarette sales coupled by reduced production costs helped British American Tobacco Kenya to grow its pre-tax profit in 2014 by 11 percent to 6 point 09 billion shillings. The taxman also benefitted from the cigarette manufacturer's increased sales as bat's excise duty and value added tax payments went up to 15 point 4 billion shillings. And as Bella Genga reports, bat shareholders are set to smile all the way to the bank to receive a new record dividend for the year.

Philip Morris is contesting an upcoming U.K. rule that would require cigarettes be sold in plain packaging devoid of branding. Follow Elizabeth Hagedorn: http://www.twitter.com/elizhagedorn See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: Philip Morris International, maker of Marlboro cigarettes, is fighting a new ruling in the U.K. that requires all cigarettes be sold in plain packaging. 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 respec...

Philip Morris International’s Shareholders met on May 6, 2015 to discuss how they can make more money by marketing their deadly products. So, we held a Flash mob to send our own message. PMI's latest campaign, “Don’t be a maybe, be Marlboro,” is NOT running in the US, which might be an indication of the type of response it would garner. Targeting youth is also illegal in the US, so its absence here can serve as an indication that PMI knows the campaign does in fact target youth. ASH joined the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids in urging governments to ban the Be Marlboro campaign in addition to all tobacco advertising. The WHO’s global tobacco treaty obligates all countries to ban all tobacco advertising, and the Be Marlboro campaign is a perfect example of why. Sign the petition at www.sto...

Seven Senate Democrats have written a letter to Walmart CEO Doug McMillon, urging Walmart to follow in the footsteps of CVS and stop selling tobacco products. See an excerpt of their letter to Walmart in the video. Even though the federal government and states are taking action to combat smoking, should corporations like Walmart have an important role to play in tobacco control too?

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 ...
