The big question, states Shane MacGuill, Tobacco Industry Analyst at Euromonitor, is if a move will be made to buy Imperial Tobacco, the fourth largest tobacco company in the world. The company not only has a large share in the roll-your-own category, but also has stakes in key markets such as Russia, Ukraine and Spain. In an upcoming video, MacGuill will discuss which of the big three tobacco companies – Phillip Morris, British American and Japan Tobacco – is best poised for an acquisition.
