Resultant to TAMA’s strategic plan to partner with an offshore tobacco merchant which has resulted in creation of Premium Tama Tobacco Limited (PTTL), it is now pleasing to note that the company is in the process of establishing a Tobacco Processing Company. TAMA now owns 9.99% stakes in this venture.

Pursuant to the 25% stakes that TAMA has been offered, the Executive resolved to form special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) called TAMA Tobacco Processors Limited to champion the issues of share holding in the company. Continental Discount House Limited were appointed as arrangers for management of the SPV to spearhead the process. It is envisaged as per the resolutions by the Executive that TAMA members will be offered to buy shares pro-rata to their levy contribution last year’s levy as a benchmark. Council will be kept posted on the progress of the same.
