Lorillard, Inc. Analyst Notes
On April 14, 2014, Lorillard, Inc. (Lorillard) issued a press release to appreciate the legislation signed into law by Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, which will bar minors from buying electronic cigarettes. Murray S. Kessler, Chairman, President and CEO of Lorillard, said: "The Kentucky law demonstrates that it is possible to find common ground and sell responsibly to adults. It would be a mistake to let old divisions affect the development of electronic cigarettes, a new product with the potential to play a critical role in the national harm reduction discussion. Lorillard has actively supported age of purchase legislation in the states and encourages states that have not passed similar legislation to do so." The Company believes that it is also necessary to pass state laws prohibiting the sale of e-cigarettes to minors as many state do not disallow selling, furnishing and distributing electronic cigarettes to minors.
