Imperial Tobacco Canada Limited Key Developments

Imperial Tobacco Canada Limited Reaches Agreement in Principle to Settle Legacy Litigation with the Flintkote Company for USD 575 Million

Imperial Tobacco Canada Limited has reached an agreement in principle with The Flintkote Company for a total of USD 575 million for claims related to certain disputed dividends and existing and potential asbestos claims. The Flintkote case is a legacy litigation that began in 2006 and is completely unrelated to Imperial Tobacco Canada's tobacco activities. The 2006 litigation sought recovery from Imperial Tobacco Canada of certain dividends and other transfers received in 1986 and 1987 after Imasco acquired Genstar Corporation. The litigation also seeks to hold Imperial Tobacco liable for Flintkote's asbestos liabilities. The agreement in principle of the dividend claims and the asbestos related liabilities, brings this long running litigation to an end. Under the terms of the proposed settlement, Imperial Tobacco will obtain protection from current and potential future Flintkote related asbestos liability claims in the United States. The settlement agreement now provides closure on a legacy file, allowing Imperial Tobacco to focus on its current business by finally and completely resolving the existing Flintkote litigation and obtaining protections from potential future litigation related to Flintkote.
