  • The deal includes the portfolio of cigarillo products and all related intellectual property, including Cigarillo Non-Tip (NT) Homogenized Tobacco Leaf (HTL), Rolled Leaf, and Natural Leaf Cigarillo Products.

Gaining access to Unitabac's product portfolio provides us with necessary assets to build a more competitive platform to participate in this large and growing market," said CEO Larry Wexler.

  • The company held $167.4 million in cash and equivalents as of March 31, 2021.

  • Price action: TPB shares are trading higher by 1.16% at $46.08 on the last check Monday.
