Jefferies questions BAT delivery but retains ‘buy’ British American Tobacco (BATS) is still Jefferies’ top tobacco pick but the analyst believes ‘multiples could remain contained’ until there is more clarity around some parts of the business. Analyst Owen Bennett retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of £65.00 on the shares, which rose 2.2% to £48.31 yesterday. ‘While expected near-term growth is impressive, as is the potential upside to the current valuation, there remain questions over two key elements of delivery,’ he said. ‘While BAT remains our long-term pick, until we get more clarity on BAT’s vapour portfolio positioning and the outlook for the US domestic tobacco business, two key drivers of the near-term group assumptions, we think the multiple could remain constrained.’ Bennett urged the company to consider a capital markets day, especially considering its recent acquisition of Reynolds.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following new allegations about the conduct of British American Tobacco (BAT) in Africa –published today by The Guardian – the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is urging the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate BAT and its subsidiaries for possible violations of the anti-bribery and accounting provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). Tobacco-Free Kids requested the investigation in a letter today to the two government agencies. British American Tobacco has faced mounting allegations that the company engaged in widespread bribery and corruption in Africa to gain advantage over competitors and stifle government efforts to curb smoking. Earlier this month, the U.K. Serious Fraud Office (SFO) formally launched an investigation of BAT on suspicions of corruption.

BAT brings second-largest bond of year British American Tobacco brought the second-largest bond of the year to market on Tuesday, but found overstuffed investors were a bit tougher on pricing than they have been in recent weeks. In the wake of a US$125bn month of supply in July - which included the year’s biggest trade from AT&T - investors were a bit price sensitive towards BAT’s US$17.25bn eight-part trade. Unlike many recent deals that routinely allowed borrowers to bring in pricing some 25bp from start to finish, BAT only managed to tighten levels 10bp-15bp across the tranches. The order book at launch was just US$35bn, leaving the deal about two-times covered. “AT&T is the culprit for why this deal didn’t fly off the shelf,” said Matt Brill, senior portfolio manager at Invesco. “It’s been a seller’s market for 18 months. There’s finally a bit of a push-back in terms of pricing.” The deal will help fund BAT’s US$49bn purchase of Reynolds American. With a euro/sterling piece of the debt financing still expected - perhaps as soon as Wednesday - BAT brought two floating-rate and six fixed-rate tranches to the market Tuesday. Unlike its last foray in the dollar market in June 2015, when its longest tenor was 10 years, this time BAT went further out to the 30-year part of the curve. Investor demand was skewed towards the longer end of the curve, according to a lead bank on the deal. The new trade came to market amid some noise: BAT and its subsidiaries are being investigated for corruption by Britain’s Serious Fraud Office. But analysts said that backdrop did not seem to have caused much concern for US investors. “At this point, it’s not a large issue,” said Brian Foster, a senior analyst at CreditSights. Meanwhile the tobacco sector has been showing some weakness after US regulators announced plans to reduce nicotine levels in cigarettes. And M&A risk has been elevated on chatter about tobacco industry titans Philip Morris and Altria reunifying, which adds event risk to the equation, Foster said. Launch of T+130bp on the 10-year suggested the slice is coming with a roughly 7bp-10bp premium to BAT’s outstanding 3.95% 2025s, which were trading at a G-spread of 113bp. After adding 5bp-10bp for the two-year maturity extension, fair value on the new 10-year bonds came out at G+118bp-123bp. British American Tobacco carries a Baa2/BBB+ rating from Moody’s and S&P. It also has an unsolicited BBB rating from Fitch, which downgraded the company two notches following concerns over increased leverage upon the completion of the Reynolds acquisition. Leads banks on the new deal are BAML, Barclays, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank and HSBC. HTTP://www.ifre.com/home/latest-news/update-1-british-american-tobacco-announces-eight-part-bond/21303672.article

Telegraph: Questor: not everyone likes it, but there are sound financial reasons to buy tobacco The nature of its product and a Serious Fraud Office investigation into allegations of bribery in Kenya mean that British American Tobacco is not a stock that will pass muster for investors who prefer to have an ethical bent to their portfolio – but the subsequent price swoon could present patient, long-term investors with a chance to step in. The SFO's work must not be taken in any way lightly, given that the 2010 Bribery Act can lead to swingeing fines, reputational damage and even loss of licence to operate. How BAT responds to the investigation, and how it plays out, are likely to influence near-term sentiment towards the stock.

Tobacco firms develop heat-not-burn products, WSJ reports Tobacco firms are launching new, electronic tobacco-heating devices they claim are healthier alternatives to traditional smoking as cigarette sales decline and growth from e-cigarettes slows, WSJ reports. Philip Morris (PM) is currently seeking FDA approval for a heating device called IQOS, which it expects to sell under the Marlboro brand in the U.S. with partner Altria (MO), while British American Tobacco (BTI) expects to apply for approval next year to sell its device, Glo HTTPS://thefly.com/landingPageNews.php?id=2591981&headline=PM;MO;BTI-Tobacco-firms-develop-heatnotburn-products-WSJ-reports
