Vectura Group PLC accepted Philip Morris International Inc's takeover bid, despite concern about the ethics of the asthma treatment firm coming under the influence of the tobacco company.

Private equity firm Carlyle Group has decided against raising its takeover offer for the FTSE 250 firm, meaning a proposed auction was cancelled. This means the Philip Morris's takeover offer of 165 pence per share, which values Vectura at GBP1.02 billion, remained the highest bid.
