    Japan Tobacco working on several possible M&A deals - CEO

    Japan Tobacco Inc (2914.T), which is on the hunt for overseas acquisitions to offset a shrinking home market, is working on several possible deals as it targets growth in Asian and other emerging markets, its new chief executive said on Wednesday. Masamichi Terabatake told Reuters he saw the potential for deals in South America, Africa and the Middle East, in addition to Asia, where his company is already active, having spent about $2 billion last year on tobacco businesses in the Philippines and Indonesia. "We have a long list and a short list (of potential targets), there are various deals in the works," Terabatake, who became CEO of the world's fourth-largest tobacco company on Jan. 1, said in an interview.

    Palmer & Harvey enters administration leaving 2,500 out of work

    The wholesaler Palmer & Harvey (P&H) has entered administration after the failure of rescue talks, leaving 2,500 people out of work just weeks before Christmas. Sky News had reported earlier on Tuesday how the company - Britain's biggest tobacco supplier - was on the verge of collapse amid a funding crisis and fading hopes of a buyout by private equity firm Carlyle. Joint administrators at the business services firm PwC said P&H employed 3,400 people but they had needed to make immediate redundancies at its head office and in the branch network of 14 regional distribution centres.

    Jobs cut as UK wholesaler Palmer & Harvey enters administration

    British retail supplier Palmer & Harvey McLane Ltd has been placed in administration after running out of cash, with the immediate loss of some 2,500 jobs, accounting firm PwC said. The group, which delivers cigarettes, food and drinks to retail chains and convenience stores, has been hit by challenging trading conditions in recent months and efforts to restructure it have been unsuccessful, PwC said on Tuesday. "The company has insufficient cash resources to continue to trade beyond the short term and the directors have concluded that there is no longer any reasonable prospect of a sale," said Matthew Callaghan, an administrator at PwC, which has been appointed to oversee the process.

    Thousands of workers in the UK's grocery distribution sector are facing a bleak Christmas as Palmer & Harvey (P&H), Britain's biggest tobacco supplier, hovers on the brink of administration despite hopes of a last-ditch rescue deal. Sky News has learnt that advisers to P&H, which employs 4000 people, are braced for the company to collapse after weeks of takeover talks with the private equity firm Carlyle failed to result in a deal. One person said that P&H may already have filed a notice of intention to appoint administrators, with PricewaterhouseCoopers on standby to handle an administration process.
