History

HISTORY
The British-American Tobacco Company was established as a joint venture between the UKs Imperial Tobacco Company and the American Tobacco Company of the US to end an intense mutual trade war in 1902. The parent companies agreed not to trade in each others domestic territory; and transferred certain trademarks, export businesses and overseas subsidiaries to the joint venture. Thus the company began operating in countries as diverse as Canada, China, Germany, South Africa and Australia, but not in the UK or US. Operations were extended by 1910 to the West Indies, India, Sri Lanka, East Africa, Malaysia and Nigeria. In 1911, the American Tobacco Company broke up its complex group and divested its shares in the British-American joint venture. British-American Tobacco was listed on the London Stock Exchange, with most of its American parents shares acquired by British investors. The company was then free to conduct its business independently throughout the world, except for the UK where there were still territorial agreements with Imperial. In 1914, British-American Tobacco acquired the Brazilian tobacco company Souza Cruz. In 1927, British-American Tobacco moved into the US market by purchasing the small North Carolina company, Brown & Williamson. From 1945-1960, despite international turmoil, which resulted in the loss of several markets including, notably, Egypt and China, the companys worldwide sales continued to grow. In 1956, the overseas business of Benson & Hedges was added to the portfolio. With shareholder approval, British-American Tobaccos Memorandum of Association was amended to allow diversification. The group gradually expanded over the next three decades into paper and pulp, including Wiggins Teape and Appleton Papers; cosmetics, where British-American Cosmetics became a UK industry leader; retailing, where acquisitions in the 1970s included Argos in the UK and Saks Fifth Avenue in the US; and later in the 1980s, financial services. The 1902 covenant with Imperial Tobacco was revoked in 1972. British-American Tobacco gained exclusive ownership of its original brands, including State Express, in the UK and Western Europe. Four years later, the group underwent a comprehensive reorganization and its operations were coordinated under a new holding company B.A.T Industries. In 1980, Imperial Tobacco sold its remaining shareholding in B.A.T Industries.

History

B.A.T Industries acquired Eagle Star (in 1984), Allied Dunbar (in 1985) and Farmers (in 1988), enabling it to become the largest UK-based insurance company by 1989. B.A.T Industries then changed its strategy to re-focus on tobacco and financial services, and to dispose of almost everything else. Economic liberalization in the 1990s and the break-up of state monopolies opened up new trading opportunities, especially in Central and Eastern Europe and the Far East. This was highlighted by the first acquisition in the emerging democracies of Eastern Europe with the purchase of Pcsi Dohnygyr, in 1992, Hungarys largest cigarette manufacturer. In 1997, the board of B.A.T Industries announced a proposal to demerge the financial services businesses and simultaneously merge them with the Zurich Group. Also that year the company acquired Cigarrera La Moderna based in Mexico. In 1998, BAT became a separately quoted company on the London Stock Exchange. The following year, BAT announced a global merger with Rothmans International. British American Tobacco acquired the remaining 58.5% of Imasco, the groups principal associate in Canada, in 2000. Imascos non-tobacco interests were sold, leaving BAT with full ownership of Canadas largest cigarette business, Imperial Tobacco. At the beginning of 2001, the company acquired the 40.5% stake in BAT Australasia that it did not own previously. As a result, BAT Australasia was de-listed and became a wholly-owned subsidiary of BAT. In mid 2001, the company announced its intention to enter the Turkish tobacco market, through an investment of up to $200 million over a 10-year period. While, later in that year, BAT announced plans to build a factory in South Korea, which would be the core element in the companys plans for an increased market presence in the worlds eighth largest tobacco market. The following month, a similar plan was announced for Nigeria. In 2003, an agreement was signed to combine R. J. Reynolds with the US tobacco business of Brown & Williamson, under a new public holding company, Reynolds American, which would apply to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. British American Tobacco would receive 42% of the common equity in Reynolds American. It was also announced that Reynolds American would acquire Lane, British American Tobaccos US smoking tobacco and cigar business, for $400 million in cash. In 2003, the company announced the sale of its cigarette making operation in Burma. BAT agreed to offload its 60% stake in Rothmans of Pall Mall Myanmar to a Singapore-based partner in the venture. The same year BAT acquired Ente Tabacchi Italiani, Italys state-owned tobacco company. The company agreed to sell Etnera, the distribution business of BAT Italia (formerly Ente Tabacchi Italiani) in July 2004 to the Compaa de Distribucin Integral Logista (that acquired a 96% stake) and Axiter

History

Investments (that acquired the remaining 4%). The company also announced during the year that the Central Government of China and the relevant government departments had approved the Groups major strategic investment in China, the largest tobacco market in the world, with annual sales of around 1780 billion cigarettes. In August 2004, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Holdings (RJR) and Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corporation (a subsidiary of BAT) completed the transaction that formed a new publicly traded company, Reynolds American, and combined their respective US tobacco businesses. In January 2005 BARH Limited, the 55/45 joint venture between BAT and Honda Motor Company, completed the acquisition of the B.A.R Formula One racing team from administrators Grant Thornton. In April 2005, the company sold to Gallaher the Benson & Hedges and Silk Cut trademarks in Malta and Cyprus (North and South), and the Silk Cut trademark in Lithuania. May 2005 saw BAT Start the testmarketing of smokeless Swedish-style snus for the first time and putting two of its best-known brands (Lucky Strike and Peter Stuyvesant) behind it. In June 2005, BAT announced plans to transfer the production of some 6.2 billion cigarettes from its Southampton factory to factories in Korea and Singapore. In July 2005, BAT announced the planned closure of its Southampton factory, signalling the end of its cigarette production in the UK.

SWOT Analysis

SWOT ANALYSIS
BAT is the second largest tobacco producer in the world. With more than 300 brands in its portfolio, the company holds robust market positions in each of its operating regions and has leadership in more than 50 of the 180 markets where it does business. The companys strong market position is further strengthened by its wide global presence. However, the companys revenues may be adversely affected due to rising health concerns and public opinion against smoking.

Strengths
Strong market position Geographically diversified Control over tobacco leaf

Weaknesses
Declining profitability Falling revenues from major operating segments Decreasing operating cash flows

Opportunities
Light cigarettes Market potential in China Rising popularity of smokeless tobacco

Threats
Increasing health concerns Competitor strategies Contraband and counterfeit cigarettes

Strengths
Strong market position BAT is the second largest tobacco producer in the world, with a market share of 22.1% and more than 300 brands in its portfolio. BAT holds robust market positions in each of its regions and has leadership in more than 50 of the 180 markets where it does business. The company processes some 660 million kilos of tobacco leaf and producing some 853 billion cigarettes in 2004. Due to the addictive nature of tobacco products, BATs products enjoy a built in high level of demand, and the companys vast array of popular brands mean that it is in a position to consistently take advantage of this demand. The strong market position of the company is a key strength for BAT. Geographically diversified BAT is very well diversified geographically. The company operates through 81 factories in 64 countries. However, the companys largest market, Europe accounts

British American Tobacco plc Datamonitor Page 17

BRITISH AMERICAN TOBACCO PLC


SWOT Analysis

for only 41.4% of its net revenues. Geographically balanced in its operations, BAT is not overly dependent on any of its operating regions. The America-Pacific region accounted for 21.3% of the companys net revenues in 2004; while the Asia-pacific region accounted for 13.1%. In 2004, Africa and the Middle East contributed 12.4% of BATs net revenues and Latin America contributed another 11.8%. The company has strong market position in North America, Western Europe and Eastern Europe, three of the strongest markets for tobacco products in the world. However, this has not stopped BAT from expanding into emerging markets like China where the sheer size of the smoking population presents a significant opportunity for the company. The companys wide geographical spread has provided it growth opportunities in diversified markets. Control over tobacco leaf BATs tobacco leaf business is large, with the group purchasing about 517,000 tons of leaf tobacco annually. Subsidiary companies operate leaf growing programs through which they provide direct agronomy support to farmers if it is not otherwise available. BAT purchases on average about 65% of its leaf through these programs, mainly through directly contracted farmers. In 2004, BATs subsidiary companies operated 22 leaf programs in 22 countries, covering about 254,400 hectares under cultivation. This gives the company an assured supply of tobacco leaf and insulates it from demand and price fluctuations for tobacco leaf.

Weaknesses
Declining operating profitability Despite a 31.7% increase in total revenues during 2004, the operating profit of the company increased a mere 1.0% over fiscal 2003. As result, the companys operating margins decreased from 7.4% to 5.6%. Profit from the America-Pacific region was 795 million, a decrease of 200 million from the same period last year. This was the result of lower profits in Canada and Japan. In Latin America, profits from Brazil were slightly down from 2003 due to lower volumes requiring higher marketing expenses. Profits in Chile also declined. These declines in profitability were further accentuated by the translation of US, Canadian and Latin American results into pounds sterling. The decline in profit in these two operating regions caused the overall profitability of the company to decline and this reflects poorly on the company. Falling revenues from major operating segments

British American Tobacco plc Datamonitor Page 18

BRITISH AMERICAN TOBACCO PLC


SWOT Analysis

Three of the companys five operating regions witnessed declining revenues during 2004. Net revenues from the America-Pacific region reached 2294 million in 2004, a decrease of 35.6% from fiscal 2003. At the same time, the Asia-Pacific regions net revenues declined by 4.6%. Latin America, which accounts for 11.8% of the total revenues, witnessed a 2.5% decline in revenues during 2004. In the Asia Pacific region, the company witnessed a decline in Indonesia and Malaysia while in the America-Pacific region, Imperial Tobacco Canada witnessed declining volumes and deteriorating sales mix. In Latin America, regional sales volume at 148 billion was down by 2 billion mainly as a result of increased pressure from growing illicit trade. Falling revenues from major operating segments could lead to a loss of market share for BAT. Decreasing operating cash flows For fiscal year 2004, BATs cash flow from operations was 2677 million, a decrease of 14.0% from 2003. The free cash flow for the company was 2412 million, 10.4% less than the free cash flow in 2003. The decline in the companys operating cash flow and free cash flow is largely attributable to an increase in working capital requirements. Declining cash flows from operations are indicative of the companys poor cash management.

Opportunities
Light cigarettes The demand for tobacco products with lower nicotine content has been rising in the past few years due to increasing health concerns. As a result, most tobacco companies have shifted focus from manufacturing strong cigarettes to manufacturing lighter ones, with low nicotine content. Considering the fact that adult women smoking population presents opportunities for growth, most tobacco companies have introduced light cigarettes for the market. BAT has a strong position in the market for light cigarettes and these are marketed under some of the companys strongest brands. The company can thus leverage the growing popularity of light cigarettes to increase its sales volumes. Market potential in China China is potentially a huge market for BAT. While the majority of the market remains under the control of China National Tobacco (CNTC), a state tobacco monopoly, there is a growing demand for international brands in China in all product categories. With 2003 volumes of 1.75 trillion cigarette sticks (one-third of the total global market),

British American Tobacco plc Datamonitor Page 19

BRITISH AMERICAN TOBACCO PLC


SWOT Analysis

China is the large volume prize for all the international majors, who currently have barely a foothold in the market. However, of all major international players, BAT is the best-placed as far as taking advantage of this is concerned since, the Central Government of China and the relevant government departments approved the Groups strategic investment in China in the year 2004. The new factory is being established by BAT in a joint venture with China Eastern Investments Corporation, and will reach a manufacturing capacity of 100 billion cigarettes (State Express 555 and other brands) per year. The venture will also allow BAT to distribute and sell its brands all over China. Rising popularity of smokeless tobacco The world market for smokeless tobacco is worth an estimated $2 billion of which the US accounts for approximately 65%, followed by Sweden with sales of $480 million in 2003. Other markets with a strong smokeless tobacco tradition include India, Algeria, Pakistan, South Africa and Norway. The European market for snus has been witnessing increasing sales. Norway and Sweden especially enjoy a lively snus market, with sales increasing rapidly over the past few years as consumers turn to reduced-risk nicotine consumption. During the five years ended 2004, Swedens market for snuff increased by 30%. In May 2005, BAT started test-marketing smokeless snus for the first time and the company has put two of its best-known brands (Lucky Strike and Peter Stuyvesant) behind it. With the market for snus increasing in Europe, the companys largest market, BAT could have found a new area for growth.

Threats
Increasing health concerns Due to increasing health concerns worldwide, there has been a general decline in the consumer preference for tobacco products. While active smoking leads to a number of respiratory and heart ailments, even passive smoking has been proven to cause certain diseases. The frequency of consumers who have suffered irreparable damage to their health is slowly increasing as also the incidence of such people taking cigarette companies to court for punitive damages. BAT is no exception to this, and should this trend continue, it may be the single largest factor leading to a decline in the companys revenues. Competitor strategies

British American Tobacco plc Datamonitor Page 20

BRITISH AMERICAN TOBACCO PLC


SWOT Analysis

Major cigarette manufacturers like BAT, which are subject to pending lawsuits worth billions of dollars, are facing competition from smaller manufacturers who are not subject to litigation. The bigger companies are being forced to set aside substantial amounts of their profits to pay for damages they might have to pay in future. Smaller companies are trying to take advantage of this by tying up with each other and offering very-low priced but quality tobacco products. As a result, they are gaining market share from established players who cannot afford to price their products below a certain level, in order to maintain the premium image of their products. Contraband and counterfeit cigarettes BAT is also threatened by the increased availability of contraband and counterfeit cigarettes. The company plans to tackle this by working in partnership with governments. It is playing a major role in The Global Business Leaders Alliance Against Counterfeiting, a group whose aim is to increase political awareness of the risks and impact of counterfeit. The company has also been experiencing falling growth volumes because of the planned action taken to restrict the supply of duty-free products. Approximately 15% of all cigarettes sold in the UK are expected to be contraband / counterfeit. In 2002-03, the companys Benson and Hedges brand accounted for 19% of all seizures of illicit cigarettes made by the UK customs. Of these, 90% were counterfeit. The company has also witnessed counterfeit products in East European and Asian markets. Since these cigarettes are cheaper (due to not being taxed), an increase in the availability of such illicit cigarettes could deprive BAT of potential customers.

COMPANY VIEW
A statement by Jan du Plessis, chairman of BAT is given below. The statement has been taken from the companys 2004 annual report. British American Tobaccos operating profit before goodwill amortisation and exceptional items grew by 2 per cent to 2,830 million at current rates of exchange. At comparable rates of exchange, the improvement would have been 7 per cent. Adjusted diluted earnings per share increased by 10 per cent to 75.83p, reflecting the increase in operating profit, the reduced effective tax rate, lower minority interests and the impact of the share buy-back programme. During the year, 59 million shares have been repurchased, representing 2.8 per cent of the average number of shares in issue during 2004, at a cost of around 490 million and at an average price of 8.35 per share. This brings the total number of shares bought back since the programme was launched in 2003 to 165 million, accounting for 8 per cent of the total outstanding, at a cost of almost 1.2 billion. We expect to restart the share buy-back programme following the announcement of these results. The Board has proposed a final dividend of 29.2p per share, bringing the total for the year to 41.9p, an increase of 8 per cent. The dividend will be paid on 4 May to shareholders on the Register at 11 March 2005. In future, when the Board is considering the interim dividend, its policy will be that the interim should represent one-third of the previous years total dividend, unless there are any special factors to be taken into account. Group cigarette volumes, including make-your-own cigarette stix, were ahead by 8 per cent to 853 billion, principally as a result of the inclusion of a full years sales from the enlarged business in Italy, as well as five months results from Reynolds American Inc., formed by the successful combination of R.J. Reynolds and the US businesses of Brown & Williamson. The completion of this transaction was a landmark event for the Group in 2004 and the integration of the businesses is progressing well. Our 42 per cent shareholding is now transparently valued, at around US$5 billion, and the Group has the benefit of an indemnity for all existing and future US litigation. The recent Appeals Court decision to reject the US Federal Governments US$280 billion claim against the US tobacco industry is obviously encouraging, even though

the US Government is seeking a further appeal. Given the appeals pending in the Engle and Price/Miles cases, 2005 is set to be an important year for the US tobacco industrys attempts to put these three lawsuits behind it. Excluding merger benefits, there were strong volume performances in Russia, Turkey, India and Pakistan offset by declines in Germany, France, Canada and Japan. The global drive brands, Dunhill, Kent, Lucky Strike and Pall Mall, grew by 2 per cent. Kents volume increased by 10 per cent to a new record high of 33 billion. As this is my first Chairmans statement, I would like to remind shareholders that there is more to the Groups strategy for creating shareholder value than achieving growth, vital though it undoubtedly is. It is essential that we maintain our balanced approach to achieving growth, improving productivity, managing our business in a responsible manner and developing a winning organisation. We will continue to drive all four elements of our strategy, in order to build a sustainable business and achieve leadership of the industry. In terms of productivity, we have continued to meet the commitment made two years ago to reduce overheads and indirect costs by 200 million per year by 2007. Building on the 64 million in 2003, we saved a further 89 million in 2004, principally as a result of restructuring throughout the Group. Given our excellent progress, we are now raising our five year target on overheads and indirect costs to 320 million per year by the end of 2007, around a further 170 million per year over the next three years. Additionally, we have reduced our supply chain costs over the last two years by 120 million per year, as a result of factory rationalization and logistics savings. We expect to achieve further substantial supply chain savings in the years ahead. On the responsibility front, I am pleased to report that we have made further progress in the eyes of those organisations prepared to consider our record in an objective way. The United Nations Environmental Programme ranked British American Tobacco fourth out of the top 50 global reporters in its annual survey of best practice in nonfinancial reporting. The Group was also favourably mentioned in a UK Department of Trade & Industry report entitled Building Better Boards and covering best practice in corporate governance. We have maintained our position as the only tobacco company, apart from our Malaysian subsidiary, to be included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index. Our website, bat.com, was, once again, ranked as the best in the FTSE 100 by the Financial Times Webranking Survey.

We will continue to support tobacco regulation that balances the preferences of consumers with the interests of society, establishes an open-minded approach to harm reduction as a public health policy and does not undermine the competitive business environment. In the debate over smoking in public places, for example, we will promote the provision of segregated and properly ventilated smoking areas. These solutions work perfectly well and are a more balanced approach than the social exclusion of smokers favoured by anti-tobacco campaigners. In addition to Martin Broughtons retirement as Chairman on 30 June 2004, there have been some other changes to the Board. Dr Harald Einsmann retired at last years Annual General Meeting and Admiral Bill Owens had to step down unexpectedly on becoming Chief Executive of Nortel Networks. On shareholders behalf, I should like to thank all of them, and most particularly Martin Broughton, for their service and to welcome Piet Beyers, Robert Lerwill and Sir Nick Scheele as new Non-Executive Directors of the Board. It is with great sadness that we learned of the sudden death of K S Wong, a Non-Executive Director since 1998, and I extend my deepest sympathy to his family. These will be the last set of full year results presented under UK Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, as the Group will in future present its results under International Financial Reporting Standards. Based on the current understanding of the requirements, we have set out a restatement of the key figures for 2004 on pages 34 to 36. I hope this will help to provide an early insight into the impact of the change. It has been a good year for the Group, with all regions apart from America-Pacific achieving organic growth at comparable rates of exchange. This demonstrates the fundamental strength provided by British American Tobaccos successful strategy and geographical diversity. Our goal remains to grow earnings per share, on average, by high single figures and to pay out at least half of our earnings in dividends. Our success over the last three years has enabled us to deliver an average total shareholder return of 20.8 per cent a year, compared to 2.4 per cent for the FTSE 100.
