CARG can play an important roll in the future. Even though it's currently trading on high PE, the growth in the recent past is tremendous.

One of the largest Market Capitalized Stocks in the island nation, British American Tobacco owned Ceylon Tobacco Company PLC (CTC) will be one of the stocks that will be largely affected under a new regime of Maithripala Sirisena according to insiders and sources.

The insiders from the political front and CTC front both says Maithripala tried to charge money from CTC - the monopolistic cigarette manufacturer in the island nation by promoting a bogus story line in newspapers that said 'Tobacco Industry largely tried to Bribe him'.Accordingly sources note that although MR's 'Mathata Thitha Policy' increase Tobacco and Alcohol taxes keeping both of the industries healthy with exorbitant taxes....now Maithripala will try to affect the industry that will result in losing large foreign investment made in Sri Lanka by British AMerican Tobacco that is transforming traditional cigarette business to electronic cigarette manufacturing that is considered more healthier than a normal cigarette.

Further it is anticipated that Sri Lankan CTC will lose its export income earnings that it is bringing to economy from exporting Cigarette products.

But insiders according to MR regime they say that MR's policy will transform Sri Lanka's Cigarette industry to invest in hotels and other ventures while keeping Cigarette as a minor product like in India's Cigarette Manufacturer Imperial Tobacco Company - ITC group that is also building a 5 star world class property in Sri Lanka with over US $ 300 million investment in the beginning first phase.

It is discussed that John Keells Chairman Susantha Chaminda Rathnayake on board as Chairman of CTC too, who is also a close friend Dr. P.B. Jayasundera will push CTC to invest in companies such as John Keells Water Front Project or other Cinnamon Hotels under a MR Regime...however Maithripala may only take money from Tobacco industry and will ask to support only farmers in Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura without a vision.

Read former News Stories here.

The Minister of Health Sri Lanka, yesterday made a shocking revelation proving the worldwide well established notorious demeanor of the tobacco industry, their attempts to bribe politicians, policy makers and journalists etc., to hinder bringing in people friendly health policies in the country.

Generally laws are meant to protect the people of a country, but very strangely the tobacco industry demand and seek legal remedy for them to further engage in “man slaughtering”. Whoever supports such mean attempts in whatever manner to gain “wealth and benefits” holding whatever position, is a traitor, to a society, a country and the world.

Any day the result of engagement in such evil doing and supporting such ‘Vicious’ industry in crafty manner in whatever capacity, WILL have to be borne by the evil doer.

The tobacco industry in Sri Lanka states that they contributed rupees 26 billion to the government last year as tax on cigarettes. This money was not paid by the industry, but by the poor smokers who had been enticed and deceived by the industry without revealing the harmful effects of smoking. The tobacco industry has been unfaithful to its customers by refusing to portray pictorial health warnings on cigarette packets. The government spends money to treat tobacco victims who are in hospitals which is more than ten times of tobacco tax paid by the industry. Tobacco smoking makes a person sick and dies in their productive years which are a loss to the society and the families where smokers are the breadwinners of those families.

Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena stated that the tobacco industry had attempted to bribe him to block the issuance of the special gazette notification which made it mandatory for tobacco companies to print pictorial health warnings covering 80 percent of the principal area of each packet of cigarettes.

The Minister said the money offered to him was adequate to purchase properties for 15 generations of his family in one of world’s “happiest” countries which he rejected outright since he values his country and the well-being of the people. “A study places Sri Lanka at the 137th position among 194 in a list of the “world’s happiest countries.” he said.

According to the Minister, the tobacco industry had sent some people to him for a discussion while others wanted to see him at home or in Parliament. Many in the tobacco industry had wanted him to stop his anti smoking campaign. But the Minister did not want the money offered by the multinational tobacco companies, he said; “I would never betray my country and my people to any multinational company, I would never give up my struggle.”

Tobacco industry had repeatedly tried to approach the Minister when he was in Parliament, at home and in office. But he had not met them since he did not have anything to talk with them.”In terms of past history, all who fought against multinational companies were killed.”

“There is a possibility of assassinating me or my character. May be this decision will decide my political destiny. But I will never ever give into the tobacco industry. There are many organizations and the public who are supporting my crusade. I will somehow implement the 80 percent pictorial health warnings on cigarette packets with the assistance of all of them.” the Minister affirmed.

The Minister further stated that arrangement would be made to educate school children in Sri Lanka on the harmful effects of smoking. “Children, wives and shop owners would be asked to prevent their loved ones and the public from smoking.”

This revelation was made by the Minister at a felicitation ceremony held in Polonnaruwa Royal College, Rajarata Vidyalaya and Palugasdamana Vidyalaya.

Maithripala reveals tobacco industry attempt to bribe him
Money would have been sufficient for 14 generations
September 24, 2013, 9:43 pm
By Don Asoka Wijewardena
The Island

Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena yesterday said the tobacco industry had attempted to bribe him to block the issuance of the special gazette notification which made it mandatory for companies to print pictorial warnings covering 80 per cent of the principal display area of each packet of cigarette. The money offered to hime was sufficient for 14 generations to live in clover in a first world country, the minister said.

Minister Sirisena made the shocking revelation at a recent special felicitation ceremony on Monday at Royal College Polonnaruwa in recognition of the special WHO award conferred on him for his dedicated service.

The tobacco industry had sent some person to him for a discussion, while others wanted to see him at home or in Parliament, Minister Sirisena said, adding that many in the tobacco industry wanted him to stop his anti-smoking campaign. But, he did not want the money offered by the multinational tobacco companies, he said, adding that he would never betray the country and its people to any multinational company and would never give up his struggle.

As long as he was the Health Minister he would never change his principles., Minister Sirisena said, stressing that he loved his country more than any thing else and would lead the national struggle against smoking.


Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena’s allegation early this week that the tobacco industry had attempted to bribe him enough for many generations to stop new legislations on pictorial warning has shocked corporate Sri Lanka whilst Ceylon Tobacco Company Plc (CTC) has denied the move.

During a felicitation ceremony on Monday at Royal College in Polonnaruwa in recognition of WHO’s special award for him in recognition of his service, Minister Sirisena had alleged that tobacco industry had attempted to bribe him. The money offered to him was sufficient for 14 generations to live in a first world country, he had claimed.

However, CTC in a statement yesterday said: “As the only legal cigarette manufacturer in Sri Lanka, we categorically deny any involvement in the activities that have been referenced in recent media coverage.”

“CTC has operated lawfully in Sri Lanka for over 100 years. It is one of the best governed companies in the country with an impeccable reputation built on the highest standards of corporate conduct,” the statement added.

Analysts said given the standing of CTC in the corporate world and the fact that it is a subsidiary of British American Tobacco, the sixth largest company listed on the London Stock Exchange, the Minister’s allegation was serious and had a direct bearing on credentials for doing business and investing in Sri Lanka.

“Ideally, the Minister should lodge a complaint with the Bribery Commissioner for necessary action. If not he should not make statements that endanger the credibility of a multinational in Sri Lanka,” they opined.

The 111-year-old BAT has a market-leading position in over 50 countries and operations in around 180 countries.

Minister Sirisena alleged that the tobacco industry had sent some person to him for a discussion while others wanted to see him at home or in Parliament. He claimed that many in the tobacco industry wanted him to stop his anti-smoking campaign and he didn’t want the money offered.

The Supreme Court on Friday stayed the Gazette notification issued by the Health Ministry to have pictorial health warnings on 80% of the cover of cigarette packets until 22 January 2014 in view of pending hearing of related cases.

The Joint Drug Prevention Committee, headed by the President Maithripala Sirisena on Friday, (May 09th) decided to carry out a series of comprehensive investigations in order to recommend a new tax system for tobacco.

In addition, the President’s Media Division stated that the committee also discussed on preparing a new mechanism for rehabilitation of drug addicts and went on to note that a special drug prevention program targeting school children was also subjected to discussion.

Suggestions include mandatory imprisonment for offenders who have been convicted for more than three prior offenses related to illegal alcohol.

The President has also stated that, preventive action is more important than to punish drug addicts.

Being a bit more risk averse, I suggest that as a PREVENTIVE measure tobacco be Banned for the following reasons:

- it's against the principles of all major religions of the people 

- it cost the government to look after the effects of cancer and tobacco related addictions.

- it is not accepted by the public in general

- it makes people more sicker and unclean

- it costs companies to pay for their employees health due to tobacco related sicknesses

- it ruins the environment

- it makes the government earn taxes by compromising their health and well being

- the survivors of cancer patients cannot ever be paid back for the loss of their loved ones.

Just think of it!

Shall I Tell Ya,

There is a blindness called "Ignorance" or "looking the other way".

If Tobacco is BAD then ban it!
Useless pussy-footing with laws, regulations, restrictions  and so forth.

For example, the "Full Faced Helment" debacle was resolved by banning the use of such due to a HAND FULL of institutions, not for the people.

Are businesses there in existence for the people or people there for the businesses?

In Sinhala it is called "KANAPITA LAWS". That is laws that are lopsided and irrelevant.

Sometimes too much of education dumbs the common sense and practical wisdom!

For the benefit of the forum members I would like to share my thoughts on CTC which is the second largest stock in CSE.

Quarterly EPS Summary
Q1 15 - Rs13.2
Q2 15 - Rs15.6
Q3 15 - Rs17.6
Q4 15 - Rs9.8
Q1 16 - Rs16.3

Estimated share price using Dividend growth model comes to Rs1,437 Vs CMP of Rs1,125
price estimated based on the below input.
Risk free rate 10.37% (current 364 day Tbill rate)
Stock beta 0.38
Risk Premium 10% (assumed)
Cost of equity 14.2% (Based on CAPM model)
Annual dividend growth 10.7% (last five year compounded dividend growth)

Long term trending chart based on 12 day ROC on weekly CMP

CEYLON TOBACCO COMPANY PLC (CTC.N0000) D3W+HPPgP04yAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC

According to the chart the stock seems to be forming its 4th uptrend within the last three years. First between March 2013 to October 13, second between December 13 to March 13, third between July 14 to October 14 and now the next seems to be from April 16 and probably will last till July-Aug 2016.

So my target is CTC to reach at least 1500 level by August 2016 and with that the ASPI to hit 7000!!!. I could be wrong but the trending look support that. Also the quarterly earning will grow so as annual DPS will reach to at least Rs75 by 2020. So don't miss this opportunity.
Thanks
