Philip Morris International, Inc. Analyst Notes
On February 26, 2014, Philip Morris International, Inc. (Philip Morris International) announced that the Company's EU Region President Drago Azinovic, has commented on the adoption by the European Parliament of the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD). According to the release, Azinovic stated, "The Tobacco Products Directive adopted by the European Parliament today represents a worrying departure from the EU's basic standards of proportionate, evidenced-based policymaking, which will further erode intellectual property rights and undermine the EU Charter where these rights are protected. Instead of further harmonizing the internal market, a stated objective of the Directive, measures in the TPD will make the EU less competitive and be a gift for the criminals profiting from the black market in tobacco. This will be a blow to the hundreds of thousands of people working in the legal industry and member state governments now faced with filling budget gaps."

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
