Japanese/Nat The incoming President of Japan's second largest bank, Dai-ichi Kangyo told shareholders Friday that the bank will never again be involved with racketeers. A record number of 2-thousand 355 listed and unlisted companies held their annual shareholders' meetings across Japan on Friday. The high concentration of shareholders' meetings in one day continued this year amid controversy over the nature of the meetings and the interests of shareholders in connection with a payoff scandal involving Nomura Securities Co. and Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank (D-K-B). Dai-ichi Kangyo bank depositors protesting outside the annual general meeting Friday, angry at the bank's pay-off scandal to racketeers. Scores of police guarded the bank's headquarters to prevent racketeers from disrupting the shareholder meeting. D-K-B and Nomura securities are accused of having provided a huge amount of profits to a "sokaiya" corporate racketeer to prevent other racketeers from blackmailing the companies by disturbing the meetings. Facing criticism against their closed meetings, the brokerage and the bank opened the meetings to the public. Shareholders welcomed the move. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "The whole scandal annoyed us. I am afraid that all the money we saved at the bank might evaporates as a result. If that happens, we will have to go find a new bank. I am attending the meeting today. I'd like to tell the management people that they have to run their business properly." SUPER CAPTION: Vox Pop, D-K-B shareholder SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "I hope the bank will overcome the scandal quickly and become a trustworthy bank as they used to be. SUPER CAPTION: D-K-B shareholder One shareholder asked the bank whether it will continue its relationship with racketeers. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "With this newly formed management system, we are very much determined to break off relationship with them (racketeers) from now on." SUPER CAPTION: Katsuyuki Sugita, newly appointed president of D-K-B Nomura made public shareholders' questions and its executives' answers at the shareholders' meeting via the Internet, while D-K-B allowed reporters to watch its meeting on TV monitors. Nomura and D-K-B vowed to cut ties with sokaiya corporate racketeers in the wake of the payoff scandal, in which four Nomura and 10 D-K-B executives have been arrested. Police say they are first investigating the companies before moving in on the racketeers. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "As a result, it will be impossible to eliminate these racketeers unless we couple our efforts to crack down on them with simultaneous actions against the Mafia that back them up." SUPER CAPTION: Kazuo Miyamoto, Director of Second Organised Crime Control Division, National Police Agency A record number of 2-thousand 355 listed and unlisted companies held their annual shareholders' meetings across Japan Friday. The total exceeds the previous record marked last year by 114 and represents 88 percent of all companies scheduled to hold their shareholders' meetings in June.

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."

Philip Morris Sues Over 'Plain Packaging' Cigarette Rules

Philip Morris Sues Over 'Plain Packaging' Cigarette Rules

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 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.

The Kenyan subsidiary of British American Tobacco wants the government to develop a sustainable tax regime on tobacco products claiming that the latest move to tax cigarettes on retail price instead of cigarette characteristics has been counterproductive. The company also told shareholders that the government has not been consistent in implementing anti counterfeit laws, exposing the company's revenue earnings on many fronts.

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."

French/Nat Cigars all round for French tobacco company Seita and its Spanish counterpart Tabacalera. The two firms held a joint press conference in Paris Wednesday to confirm their merger. The new company, to be called Altadis, will be the biggest tobacco company in Europe. It was late Tuesday night when Seita and Tabacalera announced they had signed an agreement on a 50-50 merger between the two tobacco groups. The merger is part of a wave of consolidation in the industry. It creates a European tobacco firm big enough to rival the world's three biggest tobacco companies, Philip Morris, Japan Tobacco and BAT. Management of the new company, to be called Altadis, say the future looks exciting. SOUNDBITE: (French) "We've succeeded in having the same strategic vision for the two companies and there's a strong personal chemistry between Comolli and myself which has grown into a good friendship of which I'm very proud. Today we start the future for our new company, called Altadis, which I think will be a great success." SUPERCAPTION: Cesar Alierta, CEO Tabacalera The deal will be carried out on the basis of 19 Tabacalera shares for every six Seita shares. Seita shareholders will also receive an exceptional dividend of EUR5 (£3.50) per share once the merger goes through. Shares in Altadis will be quoted on both the Paris and Madrid stock exchanges. The head of French company Seita is delighted at the opportunities of the joint venture. SOUNDBITE: (French) "This creates a new leader in the tobacco market in Europe with immense buying power and market share in Western Europe where we produce 80 million cigarettes. And Altadis will be the number one cigarette producer in the world. And that's going to be pretty evident because Seita is already the number one and if you join the number one with the number two that can only re-enforce your leading position." SUPERCAPTION: Jean Dominique Comolli, CEO Seita Altadis will be the world's fourth largest tobacco group in terms of revenue and the largest producer of cigars, with a market share of close to 25% of world sales.

oin us in Winston Salem on May 3 as we rally and march for justice for tobacco farmworkers! For over 4 years FLOC has asked Reynolds American to meet with the farmworkers who harvest their tobacco to discuss how to put an end to the human rights abuses occurring in NC tobacco fields. While Reynolds continues business as usual, farmworkers continue suffer from dangerous and inhumane working and living conditions. Reynolds is also a corporate sponsor of ALEC, and Reynolds exec David Powers sits on ALEC's corporate board. Reynolds made nearly 1.5 billion dollars last year in profits while most farmworkers live in poverty. Last year, Reynolds CEO Daniel Delen made 8.5 million dollars. At the same time the company was raking in billions, it also slashed thousands of jobs from it's processing plants in Winston Salem, leaving thousands of hard working families without a paycheck. Tell Reynolds it's time to take responsibility for it's actions and it's supply chain. We will not stand by as Reynolds turns a blind eye to human rights abuses, puts profit over people, and supports anti-worker, anti-immigrant corporations like ALEC. Our presence at Reynolds' Shareholders Meeting is crucial. It's our time to go face to face with Reynolds executives and tell them we demand justice.
