By 1911, the American Tobacco Company had divested its shares in the joint venture and British American Tobacco was listed on the LSE.
In 1972, with the revocation of the agreement with Imperial, British American Tobacco gained exclusive ownership of its original brands. In 1998, British American Tobacco Plc became a separately quoted company on the LSE and in 1999, the company merged with Rothmans International.
