Altria Group recommends rejection of amended mini-tender by TRC

Altria Group states it "has become aware that TRC Capital has amended its unsolicited "mini-tender offer" to purchase in cash up to 3M shares, or less than 0.2% of Altria's outstanding common stock, such that the purchase price is now $40.00 per share, rather than $44.25 per share pursuant to TRC's original offer. TRC's amended offer remains subject to numerous conditions and Altria believes that the offer is unlikely to be completed at any time when the offer price is above the then-current market price of Altria common stock. Altria further cautions shareholders that TRC can extend the offer and delay payment beyond the scheduled expiration of the offer, which is currently scheduled for 12:01 a.m., New York City time, on Friday, October 4, 2019."

E-vapor regulation to hit Juul hard, 'odd time' for merger talks, says Citi
The Trump Administration said yesterday that it will "clear" the market of all non-tobacco flavored e-vapor products, including mint and menthol, Citi analyst Adam Spielman tells investors in a research note. The analyst had hoped the rules would have little impact on Juul as it has stopped supplying fruit flavors to physical stores. However, Trump's proposal is likely to hit Juul hard, as about three-quarter of its volume is in mint, says Spielman. Further, he believes at least half of British American Tobacco's (BTI) and IImperial Brands' (IMBBY) e-vapor volumes in the U.S. will be banned under the new definition. This all reinforces that this is an "odd time" for Philip Morris (PM) and Altria Group (MO) to be in merger talks, contends Spielman. The analyst, who doubts Trump's announcement will affect the talks between the companies, says the future of tobacco regulation in the U.S. is unclear currently. "We can only assume the companies have chosen to talk now because they are very confident about the outcomes. We, by contrast, see plenty of risk," writes Spielman.

Jefferies lowers Philip Morris and Altria targets, sees little value in merger
Jefferies analyst Owen Bennett updated his estimates on Philip Morris (PM) and Altria Group (MO) post their results and his look at the possible merger in more detail. With a deal creating "little value in a best case scenario," the analyst thinks the merger "could also be a move driven to limit downside," with Juul possibly to be targeted by the FDA and/or the IQOS outlook globally not as strong as perceived. To reflect these risks, Bennett lowered his price target for Philip Morris to $71 from $82 and for Altria Group to $46 from $57. The analyst keeps Hold rating on both stocks.

Philip Morris, Altria Group merger getting more probable, says Citi
Citi analyst Adam Spielman believes a merger between Philip Morris (PM) and Altria Group (MO) is getting more probable. If shareholder pressure was going to cause the managements to cancel the deal talks, we probably would have heard by now, Spielman tells investors in a research note. Juul is unlikely to be a big part of the merger, so the crackdown on e-vapor flavors will not make much of a difference to the merger, adds the analyst. He believes that if there's a "plain vanilla merger," the emphasis will be on the potential profit from new products in the U.S. However, there are "significant weaknesses to this argument," says Spielman.

BofA/Merrill reiterates Buy rating on Altria amid 'storm system of concerns'
Altria Group (MO) has lost $11.8B in market value, or nearly all of the $12.8B it invested in Juul in December, since August 23, noted BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Lisa Lewandowski. She acknowledges that there may be additional downside for the stock given negative news regarding youth incidence, vaping illnesses, and bills in the Senate, though Lewandowski reiterates a Buy rating on Altria, which she still sees as best positioned to adapt to U.S. industry challenges. The analyst, who awaits further comments from the management of Altria and Philip Morris (PM) about a possible merger, has a $54 price target on Altria shares.
