Sampoerna Bukan Basa Basi Vector Logo Download
Sampoerna (PT Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna Tbk) IDX: HMSP is an Indonesian tobacco company whose cigarette brands are smoked by millions of Indonesians. It is reportedly the largest Indonesian tobacco company, ahead of Gudang Garam and Djarum. In May, 2005, subsidiaries of Altria Group completed the acquisition of 97.95% of the company.
A block of approximately 40% of the outstanding stock was sold by the controlling Sampoerna family, especially by Putra Sampoerna, and other insiders in a negotiated transaction and the remaining shares were purchased in a tender offer. The series of transactions valued the company at approximately $5.2 billion. The investment in Sampoerna represented a strategic move for Altria. Although Marlboro is by far the most popular Western-style (non kretek cigarette), most Indonesians still smoke kretek cigarettes.
Sampoerna is known as a fan of soccer and is often seen in the stadium at every game; in 2006, after Manchester United owner Malcolm Glazer was seen giving Sampoerna a contract at the Carling cup final, rumours circulated that he was considering investing in or purchasing a Soccer team. He also owns Mansion88 which is run by the same American and Aussie team that manage to lose 30 million pounds with its Gibraltar based company.
