    Oil firms, exporters drag FTSE 100, while Sainsbury's, LSE outshine

    The FTSE 100 ended 0.4 percent lower and the more domestically-focused FTSE 250 inched down 0.1 percent. Shell shed 1.4 percent to a month low and BP gave up 2.1 percent, as crude prices weakened after U.S. oil inventories rose more-than-expected with output reaching a new record of 12.3 million barrels per day. As sterling rose to multi-week highs with lingering hopes of progress in cross-party Brexit talks and ahead of Bank of England interest rate meeting on Thursday, exporter companies bore the brunt as much of their revenue is earned in dollars.

    British American Tobacco sees 2019 profit growth in face of tighter regulations

    The world's second-largest tobacco company, in February, forecast "another year of high single figure adjusted constant currency earnings growth" for 2019 and noted a board proposal to increase its dividend by 4 percent. The maker of Lucky Strike and Dunhill cigarettes had reported higher full-year adjusted sales and profit, boosted by cigarette market share gains and higher sales of vaping devices. "While our business is continuing to perform very well we are very conscious that investor sentiment over the last year has been negatively impacted by concerns over possible regulation in the U.S. and competitor dynamics in new categories resulting in a sharp fall in our share price," Burrows said.

    BAT smokes out new chair as governance reforms hit boards

    The chairman of British American Tobacco (BAT) is to step down within months as it becomes the latest FTSE-100 company to confront City reforms which impose stricter time limits on directors' tenure. Sky News has learnt that the board of BAT - the UK's largest cigarette maker by market value - has instructed headhunters at Korn Ferry to find a successor to Richard Burrows. Mr Burrows, who has chaired the Lucky Strike manufacturer since November 2009, is the latest in a string of blue-chip chairs who have become 'timed out' by governance changes which mean they lose their independence after holding a boardroom role for more than nine years.

    FTSE clings to six-month high as potential further Brexit delay lifts mood

    The FTSE 250 bounced 1.2 percent - its biggest rise in two-and-a-half months - for a fifth straight session of gains, while the FTSE 100 added 0.4 percent and ended the session at its highest level since early October. Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday said she would seek another Brexit delay beyond April 12, hoping to try to agree a European Union divorce deal with the opposition Labour leader. "None of this guarantees Britain won't bumble out of the EU sans deal, especially given the frothing fury May's cross-party olive branch has caused among the hard right of her Tory party," said Spreadex Analyst Connor Campbell.

    FTSE 100 glows as sterling dims; Brexit deadlock unbroken

    The FTSE 100, which earns more than two-thirds of its earnings in U.S. dollars, added 0.6 percent on its best day in a week - and the FTSE 250 was up 0.1 percent. Sterling lost more than a percent as May failed to sway hardline opponents of her European Union divorce deal with an offer to quit, while none of eight indicative options to break the Brexit deadlock won majority support in parliament. Tobacco giant Imperial Brands advanced 2.3 percent and British American Tobacco climbed 2 percent as brokerage Citi hiked rating on both stocks to "Buy" saying regulatory threat will probably move away from cigarettes.

    [$$] British American Tobacco’s Canadian Unit Files for Bankruptcy in U.S.

    British American Tobacco PLC put one of Canada’s top cigarette distributors into bankruptcy protection in the U.S. after that subsidiary, sued by Quebec smokers in 1998 for hiding health risks, was ordered to pay 9.2 billion Canadian dollars (US$6.9 billion). Officials who put Imperial Tobacco Canada Ltd. into chapter 15 protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York said the move is meant stop creditors from taking the tobacco held at the company’s Ohio and Montana warehouses while it negotiates a payment plan. Tobacco for its cigarettes, grown in Mexico, is stored in those warehouses as part of its importing process.
