At an extraordinary general meeting of the Danish Skandinavisk Tobakskompagni A/S on Monday 15 December the decision was made to change the Company’s name to Scandinavian Tobacco Group A/S.

The name change will become effective immediately. Scandinavian Tobacco Group is the parent company for a number of subsidiary companies in several countries and for most of them the name change will continually take effect during the next six months.

In connection with the name change a new logo will be presented, which should be seen as a larger part of a reorganization of the Company. This is why Scandinavian Tobacco Group will in future be one company with a joint identity – no matter where in the world the Company or products are represented.

The Company’s history covers more than 200 years. Scandinavian Tobacco was founded in 1961 – at which time three Danish tobacco companies were merged – two via the parent company Skandinavisk Holding who today own Scandinavian Tobacco Group A/S: Chr. Augustinus Fabrikker (established in 1750) and C.W. Obel (established in 1787).

Scandinavian Tobacco Group is a global company with Danish Headquarters and the Group employs a staff of approx. 9,500. Scandinavian Tobacco Group A/S is the parent company for a number of Danish and foreign-owned subsidiaries in the areas of production and sales of tobacco products as well as wholesale sales and retail sales of staple goods. Scandinavian Tobacco Group is a world leading manufacturer of cigars and pipe tobacco.

The name change is of no significance to the staple goods firm Dagrofa or Tivoli, in which Scandinavian Tobacco Group has a considerable amount of shareholdings.
