    Japan Tobacco buying Bangladesh Akij's tobacco business for $1.5 billion

    Japan Tobacco Inc (2914.T) is buying the tobacco business of Bangladesh's Akij Group for around $1.5 billion (£1.16 billion), its second major purchase in five months as the world's third-biggest cigarette maker seeks new growth markets to offset shrinking sales at home. The 124.3 billion taka ($1.5 billion) deal, the biggest ever involving a Bangladeshi company, according to Thomson Reuters data, comes after Japan Tobacco agreed in March to buy Russia's Donskoy Tabak for about 90 billion roubles (£1.09 billion). "With this investment, we continue to accelerate our expansion in emerging markets that matter, a key component of Japan Tobacco Group's growth strategy," Japan Tobacco said in a statement on Monday.

    Japan Tobacco Says Tax Increase to Jumpstart Smokeless Devices

    Japan’s impending tax increase on traditional cigarettes may rekindle its stalled market for smokeless devices, according to the chief executive officer of Japan Tobacco Inc. Masamichi Terabatake, who took over in January, said the new levies due to take effect in October will fall more heavily on traditional cigarettes, presenting an opportunity for tobacco companies to give more favorable pricing to next-generation devices. Investors are concerned about a stagnation in Japan’s smokeless products as the traditional cigarette business is threatened by tighter global regulations and declining smoking rates.

    [$$] Big Tobacco’s Bet on a Smokeless Cigarette Cools

    Big tobacco hoped a promising start for a new cigarette alternative in Japan could be replicated elsewhere, but slowing sales there have sparked concerns about whether smokers the world over will switch. Japan’s smoking culture and love of gadgets have made it a test market for Philip Morris International Inc. and other big tobacco companies for new devices that mimic the sensation of smoking but heat the tobacco rather than burn it. Sales of Philip Morris’s tobacco-heating device, IQOS, initially grew at a breakneck speed in Japan, capturing 15.6% of the country’s tobacco market within two years of launching nationally.

    Japan Tobacco to cut heated tobacco prices in battle with Philip Morris

    Japan Tobacco Inc (2914.T) is set to slash prices on its heated tobacco products early next week after a similar move by bigger rival Philip Morris International Inc (PM.N), signalling increased competition in Japan's nascent market for alternative cigarettes. Japan, where regular e-cigarettes with nicotine-laced liquid are effectively banned, has become the main market for "heat not burn" (HNB) products which emit less smoke and smell less than conventional cigarettes. Tobacco makers initially struggled to keep up with strong demand as they began introducing HNB products in limited Japanese markets a few years ago.

Overall, international cigarette sales volume rose 7.3 percent in the first quarter as the company shipped 98 billion units.

    Japan Tobacco to launch new smokeless product this year

    Japan Tobacco Inc (2914.T) said on Tuesday it plans to launch a new "heat-not-burn" (HNB) product in Japan as early as the end of this year, as it tries to catch Philip Morris International (PM.N) in a growing cigarette-alternative category.
