BAT-Reynolds deal in doubt
Speculation is mounting that tobacco firm Reynolds American (RAI:NYSE) will reject a $47bn merger with UK rival British American Tobacco (BATS). The latter already owns 42% of Reynolds. Sources suggest there may be some haggling to be done over the cash and shares offer. Both parties declined to comment. (TS)
