    [$$] Imperial embarks on hunt for new chairman

    Mark Williamson, 61, has been on the board of the FTSE 100 company for more than nine years, since 2007, which is against the UK Corporate Governance Code that came into effect this year. Imperial, whose brands include Davidoff, Winston and Gauloises cigarettes and Blu, an ecigarette, said in a statement on Monday that “in anticipation of the requirements of the new UK Corporate Governance Code regarding a chairman’s tenure” it had “initiated a process to search for a non-executive chairman to succeed” Mr Williamson. The move comes after almost a fifth of shareholders — 18 per cent of those in attendance — voted against Mr Williamson’s re-election at Imperial’s annual meeting last week.

    Sterling slide, oil majors lift FTSE 100 after parliament votes on Brexit

    Britain's blue-chip index jumped on Wednesday after a sharp fall in sterling overnight when British lawmakers voted down a proposal in parliament that aimed to prevent a potentially chaotic "no-deal" Brexit. The exporter-heavy FTSE 100 surged 1.6 percent, extending its more than 1 percent rally on Tuesday ahead of the vote, while the FTSE 250, which is more domestically focused, climbed 0.7 percent. All the sectors in the main index ended the day in positive territory as the FTSE 100 is often boosted by a weaker domestic currency because its multinational companies earn a big portion of their revenue abroad in foreign currency.

    UK shares jump on trade hope; Taylor Wimpey triggers house-builder rally

    London's blue-chip bourse (.FTSE) ended the day 0.7 percent higher after hitting its highest since Dec. 5 and the mid-cap index (.FTMC) rallied 1.3 percent to levels not seen since Dec. 4. Spreadex analyst Connor Campbell said the statement was light on evidence that much actual progress had been made during the three days of trade talks in Beijing. Uncertainty over London's divorce from the European Union also deepened ahead of next week's parliamentary vote on the draft deal, while figures showed domestic productivity growth slowed to a two-year low during the three months to last September.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday announced sweeping new restrictions on flavored tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes popular among teenagers in an effort to prevent a new generation of nicotine addicts.

    Juul Labs to pull sweet e-cig flavors to curb youth use

    Juul Labs Inc, the U.S. market leader for electronic cigarettes, said on Tuesday it will pull popular flavors such as mango, cucumber and fruit from retail store shelves in an effort to reduce surging teenage use of its products. The move comes as Juul and other e-cigarette makers have faced heightened scrutiny from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration amid a sharp increase by high school students in use of the devices, which look like a USB flash drive and vaporize a flavored liquid containing nicotine. Juul said it will stop selling flavors except for tobacco, mint and menthol in all retail outlets, including convenience stores and vape shops, until retailers can install technology that scans buyers' IDs to independently verify they are aged 21 or older.
