Philip Morris confirms merger talks with Altria

Suppliers of Marlboro cigarettes and tobacco giants Philip Morris International and Altria might reunite in a £171billion deal. Altria took over Marlboro sales in the US after its separation from Philip Morris in 2008. It has stayed a largely US-focused company since, with Philip Morris focusing on overseas sales. They seek to combine forces to fight the expanding vaping market.
