Tobacco company Reynolds American 4Q profit falls on charges

Reynolds American, the nation's second-biggest tobacco company, saw its fourth-quarter profit fall 54 per cent on pension and trademark-related charges and other costs.
But earnings for the maker of Camel, Pall Mall and Natural American Spirit cigarettes, excluding one-time charges, rose about 6 per cent as consumers bought more smokeless tobacco brands like Grizzly and Kodiak.
Smokeless tobacco sales, as well as higher prices and productivity gains, offset cigarette volume declines and increased promotional spending.
Reynolds American Inc., based in Winston-Salem, NC, said its net income fell to $139 million, or 25 cents per share, for the three-month period ended Dec. 31, down from $304 million, or 52 cents per share, a year ago. Adjusted earnings were 76 cents per share, beating Wall Street expectations by three cents.
Revenue excluding excise taxes fell slightly to $2.08 billion. Analysts polled by FactSet expected $2.06 billion.
Citi analyst Vivien Azer said Reynolds had a "solid finish in a tough competitive environment," in a note to investors.
The number of cigarettes sold by its RJ Reynolds Tobacco Co. subsidiary fell about 3 per cent during the quarter to 17.1 billion, compared with its estimate of a total industry decline of less than 1 per cent. It sold 5.5 per cent more of its Pall Mall brand and volumes of Camel fell slightly. The brands account for more than 60 per cent of its total cigarette volume.
Camel's market share remained stable at 8.6 per cent of the US market, while Pall Mall's market share grew 0.3 percentage points to 8.9 per cent.
The company has promoted Pall Mall as a longer-lasting and more affordable cigarette for smokers who are weathering the weak economy and high unemployment. The company has said that half of the people who try the brand continue using it.
The number of Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Co.'s Natural American Spirit cigarettes it sold grew more than 20 per cent to about 800 million.
Reynolds American and other tobacco companies are focusing on cigarette alternatives such as snuff and chewing tobacco for growth as tax hikes, smoking bans and social stigma make the cigarette business tougher.
Volume for its smokeless tobacco brands rose 7 per cent compared with a year ago. The brands had a 32.6 per cent share of the US retail market, which is tiny compared with cigarettes.
Reynolds American also said it expects full-year adjusted earnings in the range of $3.15 to $3.30 per share. Analysts expect earnings of $3.12 per share.
Company shares slipped 82 cents to $43.40 in premarket trading.

Cigarette companies settle dispute over payments to 17 states

Philip Morris USA said Tuesday that it and other tobacco companies have reached an agreement with 17 states to settle a long-running dispute over how much money the companies must pay under the 1998 national tobacco settlement.
Under the agreement announced late Tuesday, the states, including Virginia, each will receive their share of about $4 billion that was paid into a disputed payments account. In return, Philip Morris USA, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. and Lorillard Inc. will receive credits against future payments to the states.
In 1998, Henrico County-based Philip Morris USA, the maker of Marlboro cigarettes, and other major cigarette companies agreed to pay $206 billion to 46 states, including Virginia, over 25 years to cover smoking-related health care costs. Virginia’s share was estimated at about $4 billion.
So far, the states have received about $85 billion, but a dispute arose over how much the payments should be adjusted as a result of the major cigarette companies losing market share to competitors that did not join the settlement. The dispute has been in arbitration.
Philip Morris USA, a subsidiary of Henrico-based Altria Group Inc., said it will authorize the release of about $190 million of the $458 million that it has paid into the disputed payments account to the states that are part of the deal announced Tuesday.
The company said it is prepared to continue arbitration with other states that were not part of the new agreement. The company said it would receive an estimated reduction in its settlement payment obligations of about $450 million, but that amount could change depending on a variety of factors.
The states participating in the settlement are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming. In addition, the settlement includes Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.

On 'Kick Butts' Day, focus placed on alternate tobacco products

Higher prices may succeed where peer pressure, public service announcements and medical research fail to thwart youth tobacco use, according to state officials who are looking to raise the cost of smoking, or chewing or dipping.
“We know that these products get your attention, young people’s attention, because the price is so affordable,” said Interim Commissioner of Public Health Dr. Lauren Smith, holding up 69-cent single-wrapped cigars in the flavors of grape, white grape and blueberry, while speaking to a group of student activists who are mobilized against tobacco.
After the event, she told reporters, “Price is one of the most important ways of decreasing youth use as well as use by adults, but especially young people because they’re so price-sensitive.”
Legislation filed in the House and Senate would increase the cigarette tax by $1, raising it to $3.51 per pack, a policy that Gov. Deval Patrick is attempting to enact. Lawmakers are also seeking to broaden the definition of smokeless tobacco and increasing the taxes on those products as well.
“Obviously we’re opposed to that tobacco tax increase,” said David Sutton, a spokesman for Altria, the parent company of tobacco manufacturer Phillip Morris. Sutton told the News Service the proposed tax increase could have “unintended consequences” of driving sales to New Hampshire, or creating an opening for organized crime selling black market cigarettes.
Sutton dismissed the argument that raising the price of cigarettes would discourage youths from smoking by saying that youths are already prohibited from buying cigarettes and that Massachusetts retailers have a high rate of complying with the age restriction. He said because of the falling sales of cigarettes states tend to overstate the value of a cigarette-tax, and said the tax would be borne by adult smokers.
“They’re already very heavily taxed,” Sutton said. The increase would mean state and federal taxes account for 62 percent of the price of a pack of cigarettes, Sutton said. He said, “It gets to this question of tax equity.”
In 2008, the Legislature raised the cigarette tax to $2.51 per pack but “forgot” about raising taxes on other types of tobacco, Rep. Jonathan Hecht (D-Watertown) told the crowd at Great Hall. Hecht said that created a loophole, and said, “They drove a truck right through that loophole.”
“We forgot that there were other parts of tobacco products,” said Sen. Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester). She said, “It was inadvertent, and for some reason we didn’t get it through last year.”

Miley Cyrus Appears To Be Smoking A Blunt

Miley Cyrus shared a photo of herself smoking a blunt on her Instagram page Tuesday.
Cyrus appears to address and deny the marijuana photo on her Twitter, writing "I don't have an Instagram," though whoever manages the Instagram account "MileyxxCyrus" surely has access to many personal photos of the star.
The next Rihanna? A photo of Miley Cyrus smoking what appears to be a blunt was shared on Instagram Tuesday, accompanied by the no-frills caption, "High as fvck." Cyrus' unique tattoo on her right ring finger can be seen prominently in the photo.
This isn't the first time we've seen the 20-year-old engaged pop star's love for marijuana, of course. Cyrus publicly called herself a "stoner" and a "pothead" when she was given a Bob Marley birthday cake her 19th birthday, while a video of the star inhaling out of a bong when she was just 18 quickly went viral, though her rep would later claim it was just the herb salvia.

KT&G removes ‘lights’ and ‘mild’ descriptors from packs

KT&G is in the process of removing descriptors such as ‘lights’ from its packs even though it is under no legal obligation to do so, according to a story in The Korea Herald.
In September, the Korean government tried to revise the National Health Promotion Law to include a ban on words that might misrepresent cigarette products, but its efforts fell victim to differences that emerged among a number of ministries and the proposal never made it to the National Assembly.
A KT&G official was quoted as saying that though the company was not legally bound to alter product names it was doing so in order to reduce the chances that consumers would misinterpret the descriptors.
Under the process, ‘Timeless TIME lights’ has become ‘Timeless TIME MID’.
And so far three versions of Esse Soon have become Esse Soo. Soon translates to ‘pure’ or ‘mild’, while soo translates to ‘excellent’.

BAT: Tobacco prices to go up in March

Smokers will feel the impact of the 2013 Budget on cigarette prices next month, British American Tobacco, the maker of Pall Mall and Lucky Strike cigarettes, said on Wednesday.
"This increase is announced in a context of already high tobacco taxes and where the company remains seriously concerned with the proliferation of cheap illegal cigarettes... due to illegal operators avoiding these very same taxes," said BAT regulatory affairs head Leslie Rance.
Earlier, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan announced that the tax on cigarettes would increase by 60c to R10.92 per packet of 20.
This meant the recommended retail price for BAT SA's biggest selling brand, Peter Stuyvesant, would increase by R1 to R28,50.
The new pricing would be in effect for orders from March 4.
The company was worried about the increasing prevalence of the illegal cigarette trade, as independent industry research suggested these cigarettes accounted for 30% of the South African cigarette trade.
"While we remain encouraged by government's response to the problem of illegal cigarettes, the reality is that illicit trade is on the increase and we are expectant of further supportive actions to drive down this growing trend...," Rance said.

Cost biggest reason to quit smoking

A quarter of smokers claim that the cost of their habit is a bigger motivator to quit than implications for their health.
And 34% said they feel guilty about the amount they spend on cigarettes, according to the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
A poll of 2,000 smokers found that 25% reported they are more inclined to kick the habit because of money over the effects on their long-term health.

As part of its 30th annual No Smoking Day campaign, the charity is calling on smokers to "swap fags for swag" and think about how much money they could save if they quit.

A person who smokes 20 cigarettes a day would save themselves £2,555 a year if they quit.
Dr Mike Knapton, associate medical director at the BHF, said: "These figures reveal the emotional burden smokers endure by feeling guilty about the impact their addiction has on family life and their finances. Fortunately, if you smoke and want to stop, we're here to help.

 "More than 750,000 smokers will attempt to stop smoking on No Smoking Day on Wednesday March 13 so why not get ready to join in and reward yourself and your family with the money you save when you swap fags for swag."
