Japan Tobacco is a Japan-based publicly quoted company, although 50% of its shares are owned by the Japanese government and it remains the only cigarette manufacturer in Japan. Two key acquisitions have considerably enhanced its international activities, these being the purchase of the non-US tobacco business of RJ Reynolds in 1999 and the purchase of Gallaher plc of the UK in 2007, and it now ranks behind PMI and BAT on a global scale.
