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.

Winner: Uber -- or more specifically, Uber's board, for taking the power back. Loser: Supermarkets (and everyone else) declining at the hands and rumors of Amazon. Winner: Tobacco brands. They're finally being forced to run honest ads, but not on the digital channels where young people would actually see them. Plus the saddest day on Twitter, according to University of Vermont researchers.

Aurora Cannabis might be merging with CanniMed Therapeutics soon. I think that this deal is fairly likely to go through but it's not a guarantee. There are definitely possible unforeseeable circumstances that might cause it to not go through. If this goes through then Aurora will be close to the size of Canopy Growth. They might be second in line to get an investment from one of the big alcohol or tobacco companies now. Should be an interesting next few months. https://www.newcannabisventures.com/aurora-cannabis-proposes-600-million-stock-based-cannimed-acquisition-at-24-per-share/ Amazon referal link if you want to buy anything and help me out a bit :) (all you have to do is click it before you buy something on Amazon) https://www.amazon.com//ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ll2&tag=in...

http://www.ntvuganda.co.ug According to the World Health Organization, 6 out of every 10 deaths globally are caused by non communicable diseases like diabetes, asthma and cancers and their greatest risk factor is tobacco use. To curb this, a WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco control was enacted to control tobacco to which Uganda is signatory. If passed, it will; see to high tobacco taxation, create smoke free environments, ensure scary packaging of cigarettes and see to it that farmers get alternative crops.It will however face hurdles especially with farmers who find alternative crops low paying.

British American Tobacco has agreed the terms of a $49.4bn (£40bn) deal for control of US rival Reynolds, creating the largest listed tobacco firm. The UK company has been in talks with Reynolds for months about buying the 57.8% stake it does not already own. The merger would bring together some of the tobacco industry's best-known brands, including Lucky Strike, Rothmans, Dunhill and Camel cigarettes. A merger "creates a stronger, truly global tobacco" business, BAT said. BAT, a shareholder in Reynolds since 2004, said last year that the merger was "the logical progression in our relationship". However, the UK company's initial approaches were rebuffed by Reynolds, and a $47bn offer was rejected last November. BAT estimates that it can make $400m worth of cost-savings through the me...

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.
