Late-Breaking Reports Affecting the Tobacco Industry AUSTRALIA Rothmans Foundation closes in hostile environment SYDNEY ~ Rothmans Holdings Lim- ited announced on June 16 that it was closing down the Rothmans Foundation at the end of the month. The foundation, which funded sci- entific and medical research, the arts, education, and a plethora of Australian sporting bodies over the past 30 years, is believed to have spent more than $40 million on its beneficiaries during its existence. In announdng the closure of the foundation, John Utz, chairman of Rothmans Holdings, said the deci- sion was regretted but that recent anti-tobacco legislation had severely hindered the work of the foundation even though the organization was divorced from product advertising. "The foundation was never part of our commercial tobacco operations and was not involved in tobacco product advertising. However, anti- tobacco legislation has become so extensive that it was making it more and more difficult for the founda- tion to operate," Utz said. Sir Roden Cutler, chairman of the Rothmans Foundation and a for- mer governor of New South Wales, said the foundation's work had been praised by many over the years and it would undoubtedlv earn a place in history for the contri- butions it had made. "It should be remembered that the foundation's work began at a time when there was little corporate or government funding for such activities," Cutler said, citing the foundation's role as liaison between state and federal governments and the programs it supported. The organization also developed international sporting links through the sport coaching programs it established in other countries and the training it provid- ed for coaches visiting Australia from overseas. "Altogether its work represents the largest corporate support in Australia for sporting coaching and development," said Cutler. "Add to that its work in furthering cultural activities and the university re- search fellowships it funded and you have a remarkable contribution from a foundation totally funded by one Australian company." The Rothmans' decision come within days of a move by Philip Morris (Australia) to challenge the Federal Tobacco Advertising Prohi- bition Act of 1992 in the High Court on the grounds that it deprives the right of free speech granted by the Australian Constitution. Together, the events seem to indicate that the Australian tobacco industry is out- growing its patience with the on- slaught of restrictive smoking legis- lation. (GI.OVE~)

COLOMBIA Bill seeks broadcast ban on tobacco advertising gOGOTA -- Colombian advertising associations have united in opposi- tion to a congressional bill that would drastically increase restric- tions on cigarette advertising. The private bill, drafted by Senator Claudia Rodriguez, seeks to prohib- it cigarette advertising on radio and television and severely limit it in other media. The bill is being debat- ed by the Senate and is expected to be presented shortly to the congres- si, mal h,w.:r chamber, the Ho, use of Represt-ntotives. In a iet~er to senators, tht, Na- tional Association of Advertisers, ANDA. expressed concern at the far reaching effects of the bill which "clearly violates the free exercise of commercial expression, which in in- ternationally recogrfized." ANDA warns the bill would virtually out- law cig~ette advertising. The orga- nization's stand has been backed by the National Media Association and the Colombian Union of Advertis- ing Companies. ANDA says it is not opposed to reasonable restrictions such as con- trols aimed to, protect chilck-en but maintains the right of free choice for adults. The bill coincides with a study undertaken by Bogota's An- des University which concludes that advertising controls may be the most efficient tool available to the authorities to combat smoking. Cur- rently cigarette advertising on Colombia television is restricted to late-night shows and must be ac- companied by health warnings2 The Gaviria government itself could prove to be the bill's undoing, since it is at odds with its own plan to rescue the tobacco industry from the brink of bankruptcy by slashing WITHOUT OUR IDEAS, WOULD BE LOSING MILLION When production output exceeds 10,000 cpm, ma- chine down-time could mean millions of cigarettes lost per day.

Sales increased equally in both West and East Germany. In the West this Increase took place at the expense of tobacco rolls. In the East, joint customs and police actions against cigarette smuggling proved to be successhfl, giving legal sales an enormous boost. Philip was at 0.8°/,, and dealers' own brands showed a small increase of 0.1% to 4% total. (KORNER) Makers poised for major cigarefle breakthrough N]~W DELHI -- Up until recently, ciga- rette sales in India had been declin- ing steadily -- a cumulative drop of almost 15% over the past decade -- due to high taxation. Excise duties represent nearly 60% of the retail price of cigarettes, among the high- est in the world. But this is likely to take a dra- matic turn in coming years. When the current union budget was pre- sented six months ago, Finance Minister Manmohan Singh an- nounced a drastic cut in the excise duty from Rs 120 per thousand to Rs 60 on cigarettes 60 mm and smaller. The move provided a fresh opportunity for millions of bidi smokers to switch to cigarettes. Of an estimated 400 million kg. of tobacco consumed each year in India, only about 20% is in the form of cigarettes. Hand-rolled bidi ac- count for 40% of tobacco consump- tion, with the rest divided among chewing tobacco, snuff, hookah, and other tobacco mixtures featur- ing ingredK~ts ~uch ~ betel nut. Approximately one trillion bidis are consumed in the country annually as opposed to 80 billion cigarettes. Bidi production have long been considered politically sensitive. A highly labor intensive product, bidis are handrolled by millions of low - income men, women, and children across the dountry. Successive fi- nance ministers have avoided im- posing taxes on bidis -- considered the poor man's smoke-- keeping the prices low and forever expand- ing the market at the cost of highly- taxed cigarettes. The change in excise duties have given Lndian cigarette manufactur- ers the opportunity to expand their domestic base. The four leading cig- arette companies are now set to cap- ture a share of the massive bidi mar- ket, armed with a flurry of new brands tailored for domestic appeal, and that means measuring only 59 mm a stick. Since excise duties dropped, a market that was nonex- istent has now grown to around 200 million sticks a month and contin- ues to grow at an exponential pace, sending cigarette manufacturers scurrying for increased production capacities to keep up with the growth in demand. As many as six brands are al- ready vying for a share of the 15 paise-per-stick-market` and another half-dozen brands are underway. ITC has already emerged as the market leader with its immensely successful HERO with estimated sales of 100 million sticks per month. Closing the gap are VST's V~AY at 60 million sticks per month;

Brands in this so- called smalls segment have been marketed both with and without ill- ters (known as plains) with equal success. While the filtered smalls have a distinct price advantage compared with the plains, ~hey also symbolize a large jump in status for the long-time bidi smoker.

Rothmans consolidates , Dutch operations ' THE HAGUE -- Rothmans Interna- tional plans to move its cigarette production activities in The Hague to its bigger Dutch plant in Zeve- naar as part of a reorganization of its European activities, according to Financieele Dagblad. The company's associate pro- ducers in Poland and Russia are to take over its West European opera- tions as suppliers of central and East European markets. Rothmans' 160 employees in The Hague will be transferred to Zevenaar, manage- ment said. The workforce at the out- dated plant has been cut back six or seven times since 1982, when it numbered 700. The Zevenaar factory, Roth- mans' largest plant worldwide with 850 employees, is to be substantially expanded. Some of Rothmans' Berlin-based activities are to be transferred to its Du~Ja plant, with the remainder slated for two U.K. plants. In addition, Rothmans' Bel- gian subsidiary Tabacofina-Vander Elst plans to cut 280 jobs in Edegem as part of an efficiency drive. Budget scare sends smokers scurrying for cigs |SLAMABAD -- Anticipating increased cigarette taxes in the 1994/95 na- tional budget, consumers experi- enced a severe shortage of popular brands during the two-week period prior to the release of the new bud- get. GOLD LEAF was hoarded by re- tailers and sold at a 20% premium, with other popular brands sellhag at 10-15% above normal prices. The budget, besides other levies, calls for a very ambitious yield of Rs 2.4 billion through cigarette and to- bacco duties, twice as much as in the previous budget. In addition, a 20% ad valorum tax was established for tobacc~ used in cigarette pro- duction. Cigarette mm~u~actu~rs axed others immediately voiced their opposition to the taxes. Fazal lllahi Khan, joint secretary of the Sarhad Chamber of Agriculture, said the proposed budget "would have devastating effects on the local cig- arette industry and local tobacco growers." The North-West Frontier Province, or Sarhad, accounts for nearly 100% of all flue-cured Vir- ginia, sun-cured rustica, and Bur- ley tobacco grown in the country.

Raw tobacco imports fell only 8% in the same period, but from January through March of this year, imports plummeted nearly 70% and were expected to continue falling.

I by five tobacco industry plaintiffs, allowing ~ laadmm-k vironmental tobacco smoke (ETS) case to proceed to a full hearing. The plaintiffs sued the EPA in June, 1993, asking the courts to de- clare the agency's Risk Assessment on environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) be declared null and void. The plaintiffs alleged that in classi- fying ETS as a Class A carcinogen, the agency ignored its own scientif- ic guidelines, overstepped its regu- latory authority, used faulty science and improper scientific procedures to arrive at its conclusion, and "cherry picked" data by ignoring new and larger studies that contra- dicted its conclusion. In July 1993, the EPA moved to have the case dismissed, contending in part that their risk assessment was not final agency regulation and therefore not subject to judicial re- view. Reynolds has indicated that it is gratified by the ruling. "We're de- lighted by the ruling that now forces the EPA to defend its conduct in court, where the rules of science and evidence will control, not the agency's predetermined and biased policies," said Robert Weber, an at- torney with Jones, Day, Reavis and Pogue, representing R.J.

Price, Crop, Quota, and Policy Updates Coralma seeks to develop African operations PARIS ~ Coralma is planning to develop its African tobacco operations despite economic problems in many of the countries where it operates. The target in Cote d'lvoire and Senegal is to increase exports to 20% of sales in 1995 from the current 10%. This year, operating profits for the company should be close to the 1993 figure of FF 221 million, predicts Coralma chief executive Pierre Imbert. The company claims a net margin of around 7% and freedom from debt despite investments of FF 80 mil- lion a year to enable expansion its into other markets. Critical mass should be attained when production reaches 15 billion to 20 billion ciga- rettes a year, according to Imbert. " The company, 60% owned by the Bollor6 Group and 40% by Seita, dominates over 80% of the tobacco market in the African countries where it operates. Cigarette consumption has remained steady at around 200 per capita across the area, and has fallen substantially over the last eight years in countries such as Cote d'lvoire. The company wants to set up an operations in Nigeria, and has ex- pressed interest in the privatization of Sonatam in Mall. Tobacco farming is also being encouraged in Cote d'lvoire and Senegal. Further afield, Coralma has been looking at opportunities in Vietnam, but perhaps its biggest move could be its interest in gaining control of Seita when it is privatized, perhaps in partnership with ally Rothmans. (LES ECHOPS) AUSTRALIA Federal report critical of industry support schemes s'¢I)XE~' -- A draft report of the Fed- eral Industry Commissiun's review of the tobacco industry has pro- posed a 25% tariff on the import of tobacco leaf following termination of the Tobacco Leaf Stabilization Phm (TLSP) and the Local Leaf Con- tent Scheme {LLCS) next year. Urn'let the recommendations, the tariff would become effective bv Set~tember 1995, and would be gradually phased down to 5% by 2002. "/he report was commissioned by the Federal Treasury in Novem- ber following pleas b.,, tobacco growers that the deciskm to phase out the TLSP and the LLCS-- arrangements which ha~ e regulated the production and marketing of to- bac(o leaf in Australia for nearly three decades -- would be the death knell of tobacco growing in Aus- tralia. Under the LLCS scheme, manufacturers who use 5~,, local leaf in their product~, including Philip Morris, W.D. & H.O. Wills, and Rothmans, would qualit3" tot concessional rates of duty on their leaf imports. The manufacturers currently use 57"', local leaf. Under Australia's current arrangements, the [eve] of tobacco production has been controlled through a system of individual grower quotas, supp\~rted by legis- lation which empowers state tobac- co leaf marketing boards to acqt.ire all leal and market it on behalf of growers. The three tobacco product man- ufacturers have participated in this scheme through the Australian "'o- bacco Marketing AdvisoW Commit- tee (ATMAC). Each year, before planting, growers and manufactur- ers, through the ATMAC, agree on the aggregate marketing quota level for that year. They also agree on the grades of leaf to be marketed and the price to be paid for each of t!~ose grades. The report blames the :rapport arrangements for hindering true market-based competition amo~g growers, who were insulated from competing on the basis of qualily, price, and selection. "These distort- ed incentives to growers extended to research into the production of high yielding varieties of tobac~ o plants rather tham varieties witl- at- tributes valued highly by manufac- turers," the report said. "The price disadvan~ge of local growers a~ainst imports is substan- tial and has not been declining. The high cost of production and dis- tances from major markets preclude the export of Australian leaf. T~.bac- Tobacco lnterr~at~or~a 19

BRAZIL Souza Cruz plans to build US$ 54 million leaf plant SANTA CRUZ DO SUL -- Souza Cruz S.A. is building a new tobacco pro- cessh~g plant in Santa Cruz do Sul's industrial district. The new plant, to be built within the 100-hectare site where the company's storage facili- ties are already functioning, will be the most advanced plant of its kind in the world. With a capacity of 10,000 tons per year, this US$ 54 million invest- ment reiterates the company's "con- fidence in the future of the tobacco industry and the increasing impor- tance of tl~e Brazilian tobaccos Ln the world market," according to Nelson Bennemann, leaf director. Bremen season ends; sales strong in Indonesian leaf BREMEN --At the Bremen Tobacco Exchange, this year's final inscrip- t-ion for 1994 Indonesian cigar tobac- co resumed on July 6-7. A total of 2,170 bales of Sumatra, 2,062 bales of Vorstenlanden from Central Java, and 2,271 bales of Besuki from East- ern Java were offered. All Sumatra tobacco was sold to the European cigar industry and to Bremen's raw tobacco trade during the inscription. Many factories, whid~ during the first Sumatra in- scription failed to get their bids ac- cepted for leaf for the production of fine Sumatra cigars and cigarillos, were now able to cover their needs. With proceeds of approximately DM 6.5 million, the producer in North Sumatra was able to achieve a most satisfactory resu~. This year's Vorstenlandcn to- bacco was lower h~ quality than previous harvests. The entire offer comprised mainly binder and filler tobacco. Poor weather and other unfavorable facto~-s had an adverse effect on the leaf, so that it did not prove possible to realize the prices envisaged by the sellers. About 20% of the offered quantity was sold off to Bremen's raw tobacco industry. The major part of the Besuki to- bacco was also taken by the raw to- bacco sector in Bremen. The quanti- ty on offer contained substantial portions of the sought-after cigar binder as well as ripe filler material, for which there was lively interna- tional demand. Some 400 bales of lesser quality remained unsold. The earnings for the Vorstenlanden and Besuki lots amounted to about DM 1.5 million.

I] Ample crop allows tobacco exports to resume BUCHAREST -- Romania, once a lead- ing tobacco producer that watched its state-planned agriculture pro- grams topple when its communist government fell in 1989, expects to onceagain resume tobacco exports this year thanks to the largest do- mestic crop in five years. A director of the state tobacco authori~ Romanian Tobacco Mo- nopoly (RTM) told Reuters the to- bacco production will exceed 22,000 MT this year, a 60% increase from last year, when 16,000 had to be im- ported to meet local demand. Re- cent incentives granted by RTM have encouraged tobacco farmers, many of whom switched to other crops following the government re- allocation of farmland, to once again establish tobacco planting. Officials expect most of the 1,000 MT earmarked for export will go to traditional Romanian clients includ- ing former Soviet republics as well as France. In all, nearly 37,000 ha. of tobacco crops have been planted this year. In addition, R'£M reports that negotiations are currently under- way to establish joint vent~Lres with western cigarette makers including Philip Morris, Rothmans, and Seita to modernize Romanian cigarette factories. Last year the cigarette fac- tory in the southern Romanian town of Tirgu Jiu entered a joint venbare with Greece's Papastratos.

W-Ill Taxes Kill Tobacco Producers in the U.S.? he threat of the health care plan pro- posed by President Clinton last year and the proposed taxation for the American cigarette industry has been dramatically publicized by the media, debated by politicians, and attacked by cigarette makers. But while Philip Morris went to court, and R.J. Reynolds Tobacco launched its ad campaign, the ma- jor pipe, cigar, roll-your-own, snuff, and chewing tobacco makers had less success getting their concerns before the public. So what about these other tobac- co products? Will they survive the proposed excise tax increases un- scathed? No way, say leaders of some of the affected companies. In fact, more than one segment of the industry faces extinction if the Clin- ton proposal or anything close to it is enacted. According to the proposal, the tax on snuff, for instaru:e, now $0.36 by Chris Bickers a pound, skyrockets to over 3,000% to $12.84 a pound. On chewing to- bacco, it goes up over 10,000%, from $0.12 a pound to $12.62 a pound. For little cigars (those weighing three pounds or less per thousand), the tax goes up 3,333% from $1.125 to $38.625 per thousand. For large cigars, the increase is 312.5%. One company expecting a severe impact is Swisher International Inc. Thomas Ryan, executive vice presi- dent of the company, says that all Swisher products face unprecedent- ed excise tax increases from the Clinton proposal. "The effect will be devastating," says Ryan. "It would for all practical purposes put us out of business." Ryan's company man- ufactures products in all three af- fected categories. Swisher's flagship products are cigar brands KiNG ED- WARD and SWISHER SWEETS. As a re- sult of a recent merger with Helme Tobacco Company, Swisher also of- fers moist snuff, dry snuff, and chewing tobacco products. Dry snuff will be particularly hard h~t by the Clinton Administration's pro- posed tax, says Ryan. "It is a small market, and the consumers are older people with relatively little discretionar) in- come," says Ryan. Moist snuff, used by a much larger group of con- sumers, will probably suffer less, he says. "But we still expect at least a 50% reduction in the market." That 10,000% increase on chewing tobac- co will drastically curtail sales in this market segment. "The tax alone on a three-ounce pouch will be twice what we sell it for now," he says. "In states that don't currently tax chewing tobacco, the price for three ounces will go from $1.40 to $4.25 or more. This will simply kill the chewing tobacco market." The effect on the cigar market varies among different segments. Consumers of premium cigars ab- sorb price increases better than those consumers of little cigars.

effectively put the little cigar indus- try out of business and decimate the large cigar industry," says Theo W. Folz, president and chief executive officer of Consolidated Cigar Cor- poration. "It substantially reduces the excise tax revenues paid by our industry." It also significantly re- duces the taxes which the industry, its suppliers, and employees pay to the states and the federa~ gov- ernment, he says. "Substantial increases in the cigar tax rates only accelerates the general de- dine in cigar smoking and ac- cordingly reduces, not increas- es, cigar tax revenues." Cigars are highly price sen- sitive, Folz explains. The aver- age cigar smoker, with limited income available for discre- tionary spending, will opt for lower priced cigars, purchase rowe." cigars, or forego the pleasure of cigar smoking alto- gether. "With this tax increase, cigar smoking will soon be- come a rich man's pastime, de- nied to the vast majority of cig- ar smokers today who simply won't be able to afford the product." Cigar sales are at their lowest point in more than 100 years and continue to de- cline even at the current rate of tax- ation. "It doesn't take too much looking to find that the unstable, still-declining cigar industry offers little revenue for health care re- form," concludes Foiz. "A simple look at the facts tells you that cigars ,are in no position to finance health care reform. Pipe tobacco and roll- your-own are in even worse condi- tion to sustain drastically increased taxation." Herbert H. Middleton Jr., chair- man of John Middleton Inc., King of Prussia, Pa., says, 'qf President Cl~in- ton's proposal t~ increase the exist- ing pipe tobacco tax by 1,852% (from $0.675 a pound to $13.175 a pound) is adopted, the U.S. pipe to- bacco industry will shut down. Pipe tobacco will not be contributing any additional revenue for health care "If President Clinton's proposal to ncrease the existing pipe tobacco tax by 1,852% (from $0.675 a pound to $13.175 a pound) is adopted, the U.S. pipe tobacco industry will shut down." ~ Herbert H. Middleton Jr. Chairman John Middleton Inc. reform. In fact, revenues will likely decrease or disappear altogether.'" As for roll-your-own, he says the proposed $12.50 per pound tax in- creases the rethil price of that prod- uct bv more than 100%. "To lex.'y a regressive tax of $12.50 per pound on this product effectivelv wipes it out, and then of course the govern- ment derives no revenue from it," says Middleton. As this dispatch was written, the House Ways and Means Committee discussed lower but still significant excise tax increases for cigarettes and other tobacco products. The discussions envisioned excise taxes for products other than cigarettes that would be increased proportion- ately to the increase on cigarettes and phased in over a period of sev- eral years. "We prefer not to have any new taxes, since we we already pay our fair share, but the committee's proposal is much more reasonable and re- alistic," says Ryan. "It won't help our industry but it is withstandable." It is not yet certain however whether the committee proposal will carry the day. Ryan said the smoke- less and cigar industry contin- ue to lobby for a reasonable in- crease, if any. By the end of July, two very different proposals had been voted out of congressional committees. The House Ways and Means committee recom- mended a $0.45 per pack in- crease for cigarettes. The same percentage increase will be im- posed on all other products, a much more manageable pro- posal than Clinton's. But the Senate Finance committee recommended a $1.00 per pack increase for ciga- rettes and an increase cat" $1.00 per sale unit for all other products. Since non-cigarette tobacco prod- ucts tend to be sold in smaller units than cigarettes, this latter proposal posed quite a threat. But neither proposal had been passed by the House or Senate. ~ TI56901105

the,, Government Punches The Finnish govemment began carving into tobacco company's rights in the 1970s. Now, it is whittling away at the few remaining tools of commerce. But some, like Amer Tobacco, have been able to dodge the bullets and fight its way through. by Glenn John igarette sales con- tinue to drop in Finland, and there are several reasons. "The recession -- which started around mid-1990 in Finland -- is much broader here than the overall average in Europe," said Jan-Erik GrSnlund, vice president of market- ing and sales, Amer Tobacco, Fin- land's top-selling tobacco company. Due to the price competition, roll-your-own (RYO) consumption, recession, and smuggling, compa- nies see their profit margins shrink. "In the 1970s and 1980s, we passed tax hikes along to the consumer," said GrSnlund. "Today, we can't af- ford to do that." He says that opening borders to the south and east also contribute to the fall off in domestic sales. "In Es- tonia, MARLBORO costs FM 50, in Finland they are FM 185. There is much movement back and forth be- tween our countries now. Citizens, allowed to bring back 100 cigarettes, sometimes bring back more." He estimated that 3-4% of con- sumption in Finland came in legally T!56901108

and illegally from Russia and F_,~xo- nia. Compounding this are profes- sional smugglers who find it easy today to bring in large amounts of tax-free contraband cigarettes. And due to price-conscious smokers, the sale of RYO increased dramatically. "RYO is half the cost of cigarettes due to the tax rates," said Gr6nlund, but adds, "there is currently a movement to close the gap in taxes." RYO and pipe tobac- co (or rolls) sales in Finland, once on the decrease, reached a low in 1990 of only 597 tons. Four years later RYO doubled its sales -- the latest figure for 1993 is 1,056 tons. P.C. Rettig Ltd., an Amer competitor, dominates this seg- ment. In 1993, Rettig introduced an RYO price brand called BONUS. In May 1994, Amer responded with TREND Roils in regular and menthol. "The plan is to take 5- 6% of the RYO market by year end," said Gr6nlund. (There is a TREND cigarette which is sold only for export to the Baltic states and to Russia). A telling factor is that al- though sales of domestic ciga- rettes are down substantially, per-capita consumption de- creased only about two cigarettes a day. In 1991, Retfig introduced a price brand called DOWNTOWN, beginning a price war. To compete, Amer launched L&M Full Flavor and Lights at the same price as DowN- TOWN. "Although the competition says that the price war is good for the customers, we don't think so, said GrSnlund. "When the govern- ment starts getting less money, they L,-'~crease taxes." But the government increases not only taxes, but it increases ad- vertising res~trictions, today reach- ing ridiculous heights. Ever since the tobacco law of 1977 forbade all advertising and promotion to the consumer, it's been downhill for free trade of tobacco products in Finland. President Kekkonen in his 19 75 New Year's Day speech said that the Finnish people were not healthy enough, with the implica- tion that tobacco was the source of all unhealthiness. By March of 1976, the parliament went to work on drafting a law which went into ef- fect in a year later. Now, the way is getting steeper. Among the many new proposals is a ban on the only tobacco advertising arena still al- lowed: trade publications. Jukka Ant-Wuorinen, Amer president, believes that several of the new proposals are not only damaging to the industry, but con- fusing to a point of madness. "There are so many possible viewpoints and open-ended interpretations," said Ant-Wuorinen, "that [the gov- ervanent] will be up to their neck in marketing co,art ~ecicling certain actions taken by the tobacco industry are or are not against the law." Currently, the manufacturers await finalization of these proposals before they are enacted. But, what will be allowed? "Information to the trade about the product itself," said GrSnlund: "Such as 'we have ciga- rettes available, are you interest- ed?" Although the sales forces of the companies will continue, their mission will change. "They will become consultants in space management -- con- suiting the retailer in optimiz- ing his profitability in selling cigarettes." And, Gr6nlund ex- pects that all gi;ceaways to the retailer will be banned. To lick the regulation plat- ter clean, the government plans a proposal to ban the posting of brand names on store shelving; markings which aid in invento- ry. "In order to run a profes- sional business, you have to know exactly what channel and placement a certain brand gets on the retail floor," said Gr6nlund. So there are markings listing the brand name." The new tobacco law may not allow retailers to mark their in-store display units with the names of cigarettes. "That would be using a tobacco brand name in pub- lic, which may be interpreted as ad- vertising, which is not allowed." Another part of the new propos- als will probably be a ban on like- brand products and advertising of all such products, that is, all prod-

ucts wb~ich bear the same name as tobacco brands such as ~£ARLBORO Classics and .CaME~ Boots. Ant- Wuorinen points out that there will be a lot left to interpretation as there are over 3,000 registered tobacco brand names in Finland. Gr~nlund believes that Finland's expected entry into the E.U. in 1995 might be the root of recent anti- smoking initiatives. "[The antis] 1994 m deliveries of cigarettes and cigars decreased by 6% and those of pipe and cigarettes tobacco by 3%. And Amer Tobacco's deliveries increased and net sales rose by 4% to FM 121 million. The growth is at- tributed to an increase of Amer's market share from 65% to 70% of the total cigarette market -- a record for the company. Exports in- creased by 51% to FM 8 million, know that part of the decision-mak-- witl~ most heading to the new mar- ing process on tobacco will be dele- gated somewhere else. That's why there's been enormous pressure to get this tobacco law passed before that happens." The good news for Amer Tobac- co is that the decline of the overall consumption of tobacco products has slowed in the first quarter of kets in Estonia and Russia. The competition in 10-pack, a segment that disappeared in the 1970s due to the fear they appealed to younger people, began again in earnest in 1993. Amer currently has the top three 10-pack brands and 90% of this segment. Of approximately 100 brand and cigarette pack variations on the Finnish market, about 30 of these accoun~ for 85% of the market. Amer's cooperation with Philip Morris goes way back to 1962 when the company first licensed MARL- BORO. Since then, the cooperation has increased. In the 1970s, around 50% of Amer's sales were Philip Morris brands; in the 1980s that share went to 90%; and today, fully 99% of Amer's sales are in Philip Morris trademarks. With only a one-year glitch in 1991, Amer has increased its market share approximately 2% per year since 1971. In the 1960s, Amer held a 25.5% market share; in the 1970s it was 22.8%; in the 1980s, 51.5%; and in the 1990s, Amer has so far main- tained a 66.7% market share. ~ TI,~901111

by Glenn John With an ear toward consumers, an eye toward tt~e enwroz~met~t, and money i~ research, Stora Bitterud is changh~g the tong-held assumptions o~ wl~at is possible in c~garett~ board. or years, the competi- tive European ciga- rette board market showed a strong pref- erence for solid bleached sulfate board (SBB); and that basically meant one manufacturer was king: Iggesund. So competitors, Stora Billerud, Division Carton Board, which only began earnest produc- tion of cigarette board in 1986, start- ed researching alternatives. "The traditional view is that SBB is better," said H~ken Mold4n, mar- ket coordinator for Stora Biilerud, Division Carton Board. "SBB is bet- ter from a taint and odor stand- point. Solvents from printing have a tendency to stay in board and give taint to cigarettes, especially with lowered tar and nicotine cigarettes accept odor more readily." But Sto- ra went looking for an alternative. The result of Stora's research is KopparwhiteTM. "We think we know what components produce the taint and odor effects," said Mold6n. And apparently they do. Today, Kopparwhite has been ap- proved by all European cigarette manufacturers -- a distinction other folding carton manufacturers have yet to attain. Like most of its competition, Kopparwhite is a three-layer, dou- ble-coated board manufactured on a three-wire mill. The top and bottom ply are made of a bleached sulfate pulp. The difference is the middle layer: virgin ground wood pulp of long, strong, and high-bulk fibers called chemi-thermo-mechanical TI56901113
Page 39: TI56901114
pulp (CTMP) and is manufactured at its pulp plant in Fors, Sweden. With CTMP in the center layer, the board gains high stiffness and strength, while simultaneously pro- viding high raw material utilization. After several tests of Kopparwhite, Mold6n said, it was now Stora's job to convince the industry that its product was as good, if not better than SBB. "Customer perception is that SBB is all white and higher quality," said Mold6n. "We want to get the customer to look at the facts. We have spent a lot of money in re- search to develop our CTMP for taint and odor. Our research shows that Kopparwhite has the same sol- vent retention properties as SBB." Stora Billerud works with ciga- rette makers and smoking groups to test taint and odor. From the results of these tests, the mill has e_hanged chemicals in its board process, such as coating chemicals and wet-end chemical. CTMP provides a higher bulk, higher thickness, and higher stiff- ness than other alternatives to SBB. Therefore Stora's board has the same mechanical properties as SBB in a 10% lower gram weight. "The CTMP process is looking better be- cause it is 15-20% cheaper than SBB," said Mold6n. "There is the 10% savings in gram weight, along with the 5% additional savings be- cause the raw materials for the mid- dle layer of CTMP is cheaper to pro- dl.lce." Another consideration is the en- vironmental aspect: the CTMP process allows Billerud to use 92- 97% of the tree in mechanical boxboard production, compared with only 42-46% of the tree in chemical boxboard production. At Fors, the boxboard mill has two lines producing 270,000 MT of board m 85,000 MT for the cigarette industry and the balance to the graphical and high quality packag- ing industry, such as food, pharma- ceuticals, and cosmetics. Of the 800 MT produced daily, 80% goes out on railroad, and 20% on lorries. TI56901114

Board is produced on five shifts, 80 persons per shift, 24-hours-a-day, seven-day- a-week. The mill is routinely updated with the most modern equipment. Today, it is the largest folding car- ton mill in the world and the first board mill to receive ISO 9001 certi- fication. The company hopes for more manufacturers to switch to folding boxboard made with its CTMP product. The total board market in Europe is 240,000 MT, of which 40% is soli~l bleached sulfate and 60% is folding boxboard. Sto- ra Billerud has about a 35% share of the folding boxboard market -- about 85,000 MT. Said Mold~n: "every third flip-top box in Europe is ours." Worldwide, Stora's sales in 1993 were 105,000 MT, and the company expects sales of 120,000 MT in 1994. "The beginning of 1994 has been tremendous, and for the future, China has fantastic po- tential," said Carl Erik B~ick- str6m, president of Stora Billerud, Fors Division. B~ick- str6m said European con- sumption is split evenly be- tween flip-top box and soft pack, ranging from 100% flip- top in England to 40% flip-top in Spain. "Flip-top is expanding; all new Japanese and European launches are flip-top boxes." A chlorine-free product CTMP and ground wood pulp produced at Fors are totally chlo- fine-free, a process of whitening without the chlorine compounds. The outside layers are elemental chlorine-free, a process that does not use chlorine gas. "There has been talk in Europe of totally chlorine-free pulp, but so far customers don't require it -- but we are ready," said B~ickstr6m The raw material for boxboard produced at Fors is pure virgin fiber derived from Billerud's own pri- marily spruce forests -- most of which are within 150 kilometers of the mill. "The forests represent a completely renewable source of raw materials," said Mold~n. "After 80 to 100 years, a forest is ready for re- felling." In terms of minimizing emis- sions, Fors is one of the leading mills in Europe. Raw mat~Sals treed for energy requirements consist of 80% bio-fuel, with fossil fuel ac- counting for the remaining 20%. Carbon dioxide formed during com- bustion of the bio-fuel is fed back in a natural way to the forest. Fors has its own treatment plant to purify the process water. "This particularly effective unit is regarded as one of the most advanced in Eu- rope," said B~ckstr6m. "We have a very small lake, so we have strong governmen- tal controls to keep the lake clean. This forced us to be- gin early on with environ- mental issues." Backstr6m said that when Sweden joins the E.U. -- which is expected January 1, 1995 -- the company will have to adopt water conser- vation methods designed for a water-short Europe even though Sweden has plenty of water. The plant uses 16,000 cu- bic meters of water every 24 hours -- 6,000 cubic meters is cooling water so it isn't polluted. But 10,000 cubic meters is processed water purified with extensive cleaning operations, and then released clean into the lake. The company is looking toward developing the first closed-water system of any board mill in the world. Backstr~m said the company is actively looking at economical methods of realizing this soon.~ TI56901117

enna: Majestic, morahle, andMorbid There's much more to Vienna than a short trip reveals. But this selective guide for visitors hits the highlights, with a few off- beat ideas. by Glenn John rected in magnificent splendor, Vienna fell from being Europe's 19th century power- broker to 20th century backwater. Further erosion of Vienna's stature came through its associations to both world wars. But throughout Vienna's drop in political fame, the magnificent buildings, sculptured gardens, glo- rious palaces, and romantic side streets remained, in immaculate condition. Vienna's landmarks may be but tombstones to the locals, re- minding them of a past that once was and today is not, but to the tourist, the city provides the plea- sures and opportunity to relax sur- rounded by majesty. With a population of only 1.5 million, there is seemingly a statue, park bench, grand hallway, or painting for all to enjoy without having to elbow one's way in. Here are a few suggestions: Museums Vienna has one of the most impor- tant museums in the world -- the Museum of Fine Arts (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Maria Thcrcsicnplatz) housing works by some of the Middle Age's most famous painters, such as Rubens and Titian. Designed in sloping, lopsided, bold colors, KunstHaus Wien (Wei~gerberstrat~e 13), within Vien- na's famous Hundertwasser hous- h~g complex, features changing ex- hibitions and installations of modern art works. As part of Tabexpo 94, the Aus- trian Tobacco Museum (Osterre- ichisches Tabak-Museum, 7 Mari- ahilfer Straf~e) will probably be one of your destinations for a company- sponsored cocktail reception. If not, you'll still want to visit its impres- sive collection of pipes and para- 44 Au0o~ 1004 phernalia from the earliest years of smoking. The Vienna Jewish Museum (11 Dorotheergasse) which recently opened in a new location features permanent and temporary exhibits documenting Jewish life in the city. Nearby is Dorotheum, the world's oldest pawnshop (Dorotheergasse 17) in a Baroque mansion with an art deco care. For a cerebral change, the Sig- round Freud Museum (at his for- mer house at Berggasse 19) has a certain appeal for those who have any interest in the man and his work. Make note that October 26 is a national holiday and admission to all museums is free. TI56901123

Coffee Housos If co,fee ho~es wer~ not imreJ~t- ed here, then Vienna certainly re- fined them to an art. There are in fact over 500, some existing since the 17th century. Among the oldest where time stands still are Frauen- huber (Himmelpfortgasse 6) and Landtmann (Dr. Karl-Lueger-Ring 4). Among the most famous, although they've lost a bit desserts. Other quick ideas for the are ~he s-~usage For dess~, ~ ~e ~mous HoWl Sachet where you'll want to get a Sachet torte ~ Vienna's ~amous apricot ~am-filled rich chocolate torte. of their musty mystique '.. :.. • ::::"~ : '-~ due to modernization, are the Care Central (Herren- gasse 14) and Griensteidl (Michaelerplatz 2). Restaurants Among the oldest, best, and most expensive restaurants are Zu Den Drei Husaren (Weih- burggasse 4 n Viennese haute cuisine); Palais Schwarzeberg (Schwarzenbergplatz 9 -- with beautiful views); and ele- gant Korso (Mahlerstraase 2). Newer is seafood restaurant Do & Co. (Stephenplatz 12 -- also the best restaurant views in the city) in the'controversial Haas Hans build- ing. Getting up there in price is Steier Eck (Rasumofskygasse 2) for Viennese cuisine. If you like trendy places, recom- mendations are: Oswald und Kalb (B~ckerstrasse 14, Viennese); Salzamt (Ruprechtplatz) in the Bermuda Triangle; and Apropos (Rudolfplatz 12). For a quick fix, try Rosenberger Market Restaurant (Maysedergasse 2). Here you help yourself to fresh salad bar, scores of hot entre6, fruits, several kinds of bread, and Death, Dying, Cemeteries Possibly because of its past glo- ries being so far in the past, the Vi- ennese have a legendary preoccupa- tion with death. Where else in the world is there a museum of burials and funerals (Bestattungsmuseum, 19 Goldeggasse. Tel: 501-950, by ap- pointment only). Here you can see luxury coffins, funeral coaches, a bottomless casket for re-use, and an alarm designed to wake "dead" people who aren't. Cemeteries double for parks, and the largest, most famous is the Central Cemetery (Zentralfriedhof, in Simmering along the Simmering Hauptstrasse). Just about every composer associated with Vienna is here -- except one. Mozart lies somewhere in an unmarked grave in the beautiful St. Marx's Ceme- tery (St. Marxer Friedhof, Leber- strafle 6A). Although most of the deceased have been removed, this cemetery, with overgrown shrub- bery, trees, and crumbling tomb- stones is well worth a relaxing stroll. The Viennese Woods. The air in Vienna is clean - anti-that's probably be- cause of its proximity to the Viennese woods ("the lungs of Vienna"). For centuries, the city's denizens have all retired to the woods for inspira- tion in writing operas, de- signing buildings, and plotting murders and overthrows. The Viennese woods can be reached by city tram or bus. Once there you can explore the hills, dales, thick woods, and countless trails and visit some of Austria's famous wine villages. Buildings/Palaces You cannot leave Vienna with- out visiting the Schiinbrunn Palace and surrounding park and gardens. "The Versailles of Vienna" was the summer retreat of the Hapsburgs and is accessiblc by tram. Today, 45 of the palace's 1,100 rooms are open for browsing. But leave time and energy to walk around the palace gardens afterwards. Spend time walking the streets of Vienna, exploring the pedestrian- only inner core. Many of Vienna's major sites are located within walk- ing distance of the old quarter, the core part of the city once enclosed in walls. In ~ center of the old quar- TI56901124

ter is St. Stephen's CathedraI (Stepheaspl~tz), arid ma~e s~e to visit the Hapsburg's catacombs un- derneath. Vienna is opera, so you might want to attend a show at the State Opera House (Staatsoper) to be among opera aficionados (you can get standing room tickets on the day of the show at a fraction of the cost). Consider Hofberg, the £ormer seat of the empire, or Stallburg, a re- naissance building which today houses the Lipizzaner horses of the famous Spanish Riding School. Just outside the center are two of Europe's most important Baroque buildings -- Schwarzenburg Palace and the even more ornate Belevedere Palace. Nightlife OK, so Vienna is not the most ex- citing city in the world. Having said that, if you scratch below the calm surface of the Viennese who always seem to mind their own business, you'll find an undertow of the bo- hemian. Witness the growing popu- larity of late-night restaurants and clubs in the Bermuda Triangle (be- tween the Rabensteig, Seitenstetten- gasse, and the Ruprechtskirche) and other newer areas just outside the inner city ring. Nightclubs to try are P1 (Rot- gasse), the largest inner-city disco and U4 (Sch6nbrunnerstrasse 222) -- but check with your concierge to make sure that your kind of people will be attending on the night you choose to go. Bars to check out are Queen Anne (Johannesgasse), En- gliinder (Postgasse 2), and Reiss Champagnextreff (Marco d'Aviano gasse 1) ~ TI56901125

Austria Tabak repods sfagnant sates V~'nA, A~"n~- Austria Tabak describes develop- ments in the first half of 1994 as satisfactory, with ciga- rette sales stagnatec[ at last year's level of 6.8 billion units, but projected to rise slightly in the full year. For 1994 as a whole, chairman Beppo Mauhart fore- casts increased turnover and slightly higher operating profits. Financial profits will however be marginally lower due to the special dividend of AS 500 million in 1993. Austria Tabak has also announced plans to concen- trate its wholesale activities under the name Tobac- co'land, tentatively set for January, 1995. Tobaccoland will be reincorporated as an autonomous entity. During the first half of 1994, turnover at the German wholesaler Tobaccoland, in which Austria Tabak holds a 49% stake, expanded by 26% to more than AS 14 billion, partly as a result of acquisitions. Lower costs he|p raise earnings at Rothmans D~ VlLL~GS, ~ --Con~oh'<l~ted earnings at Rothmans Int. PLC for the first quarter totaled $16.3 million or $2.95 per common share, compared with $15.8 million or $2.87 per common share last year. Earn- ings from tobacco operations, after provision for minor- ity interest, amounted to $16.1 million, compared with earnings of $15.2 million in the corresponding period of last year. The increase was primarily attributable to lower op- erating costs partially offset by lower sales volume and higher income taxes. Investment income, net of income taxes, contributed $0.2 million compared to $0.6 million in 1993, as a result of lower average surplus funds fol- lowing the special dividend payment of $18 per share in March 1994. Sales, net of excise duty and taxes, to- taled $119 million, compared to $139.9 million last year. Tee ono yll ~'mce ,1894, when Proctor introducekl the ....

UST ,posts 17% inclease in second quarter earnings per share GREEN~CH, CONNECTICUT-- UST announced that prima- ry earnings per share increased 17% for the second quarter ended June 30,1994 to $0.48 per share, com- pared with $0.41 per share for the similar 1993 period. Primary earnings per share for the first six months of 1994 rose 13% to $0.90 per share, versus $0.80 per share for the corresponding 1993 period. Second quarter net earnings were $99.5 million, an 11% gain over $89.8 million for the similar 1-993 period. For the first six months of 1994, net earnings rose 8% to $188.2 million, compared with $173.5 million for the corresponding 1993 period. Net sales for the second quarter increased 11% to $310.2 million, versus $279.7 million for the corresponding period in 1993. For the first six months of 1994, net sales rose 8% to $590.6 mil- lion, compared with $544.7 million for the correspond- i,ng period in 1993. The tobacco and wine segments posted sales gains for both the secomd quarter and six-month period while sales for the "other" segment were higher in the second quarter but were lower for the six-month period. Moist smokeless tobacco sales were primarily responsible for the increase in the tobacco segment. Other segment sales were lower in the six-month period due to the sale of the distribution fights for Zig-Zag cigarette papers and related products on March 31,1993. Domestic unit volume for moist smokeless tobacco products in the second quarter increased to 162.4 mil- lion cans, up 1.3% compared with the similar period in 1993. For the first six months of 1994, unit volume rose 3.4% to 311.9 million cans. The comparison of unit vol- ume results for both periods to the similar periods in the prior year were unfavorably affected by the national roll-out of two new SKOAL Long Cut flavors in the sec- ond quarter of 1993.

Universal announces restructuring RICHMOND, VIRGINIA -- Universal Corp. has approved a restructuring plan which provides for the consolidation and rationalization of operations and services in com- pany facilities around the world. The move is expected to result in a more efficient operation generating signifi- cant annual cost savings, according to the company. A restructuring charge will be recorded in the com- pany's fourth fiscal quarter which will be reported on August 4. It is expected to be in the range of $13 million to $18 million before taxes. Savings on an annual basis are expected to be roughly comparable to the charge, al- though the full effect of the savings will not be realized until fiscal year 1996. In a related matter, Universal's management real- firmed its earlier estimate that its net income for the fis- cal year just ended would be 35-40% below that of last year before con~iderm~ the antiv.tpa~ed res~'uc~ charge or the cumulative effect of accounting changes.

Her quarter. "Our second-quar~r results mark the first period of,eamLugs growth s~.ce the company adiusted its domestic cigarette prices in the 1993 second q~aar- ter," said R. William Murray, chairman of the board. Operating revenues from the company's worldwide tobacco operations were $7.2 billion, 7.0% higher than a year ago. Operating income, at $1.5 billion, was up 22.4%, primarily due to volume gains in domestic and international markets. Worldwide cigarette volume in- creased 17.9%, to 187 billion units, from the prior year, while worldwide volume for M~L~ORO advanced 18.0%, to 99 billion units. Operating revenues for domestic tobacco were $2.9 billion, up 7.3%, while operating income, at $858 mil- lion, was 25.1% higher than last year, largely due to higher volume. Quarterly operating income was at its highest level since the company began price promoting its I~dIARLBORO brand in last year's second quarter. At the retaillevel, according to the latest available A.C. Nielsen data, the company's overall share in May 1994 was at a record high of 46.6%, up 5 share points from March 1993, before the company began its MARLBORO price promotion. The data indicates that Philip Morris' retail share has returned to its historical growth trend. The May Nielsen figures also show that retail share for MARLBORO reached an all-time high of 28.5%, an in- crease of 6.5 share points compared with March 1993. Retail share of Philip Morris' other premium brands, as a group, was 9.1%, up from a low of 8.3% in August 1993, when the company realigned their wholesale list prices. Among discount cigarettes, BAsic remains one of the- leading brands with an overall retail share of 4.7%. International tobacco continued to grow strongly in the second quarter, operating revenues advanced .6.8%, to $4.3 billion, and operating income climbed 19.2% , to $688 million. The ~esults were ~3~ieved p~ on higher volume, which ~eached 128 billion units, up 16.3% from a year ago. International volume for the com- pany's U.S.-heritage brands continued its strong growth trend in the second quarter. The company recorded strong volume gains in most markets, including Ger- many, Italy, France, Spain, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Japan, Korea, Argentina, and Brazil. In Turkey, volume declined in the face of difficult economic conditions. Philip Morris" market share trends continued to be positive in its major internation- al markets, with record shares achieved in Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, Holland, Finland, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Argentina, and Brazil. Volume rose substantially in Western Europe, Philip Morris' largest cigarette market outside of the U.S. Gains were recorded, in most countries, mainly on the strong per- formance of the company's U.S.-heritage brands. MARLBOR, O continued to lead the company's strong volume growth in Germany, while in Italy, Philip Mor- ris products accounted for six of the top ten brands. In France, CHESTERFIELD continued its strong upward share trend, and in Finland, L&M gained considerable share. In the Asia/Pacific region, the company delivered strong growth in Korea, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Japan. In Japan, the company's new ul- tra-low-tar product, NExt, successfully launched last September, continued to grow strongly, reaching over 1% share of market. HEIDPARK N.V.
