The Senior VP and General Counsel of PMI, Marc Firestone said, “”We are certainly disappointed but understand that the English Court ultimately deferred to the Parliament’s judgment about cigarette packaging. Inexplicably, however, the Court’s reasoning relies heavily on a 2006 decision by a judge in the United States in a case about US law to which PMI was not even a party, and did not concern plain packaging.” The stock is going forward its fifty-two week low with 33.08% and lagging behind from its 52-week high price with -4.09%.
