British American Tobacco plc Recommends Final Dividend for the Year Ended December 31, 2014, Payable on May 7, 2015; Announces Audited Earnings Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Financial Guidance for the Year 2015

The Board of British American Tobacco plc recommended a final dividend of 100.6 pence per ordinary share of 25 pence for the year ended 31 December 2014. If approved by shareholders at the AGM to be held on 29 April 2015, the final dividend will be payable on 7 May 2015 to shareholders registered on either the UK main register or the South Africa branch register on 20 March 2015 (the record date). The group announced audited earnings results for the year ended December 31, 2014. For the year, the company announced gross turnover (including duty, excise and other taxes of £28,535 million (2013: £30,925 million)) of £42,506 million compared to £46,185 million, revenue of £13,971 million compared to £15,260 million, profit from operations of £4,546 million compared to £5,526 million, adjusted profit from operations of £5,403 million compared to £5,820 million, profit before taxation of £4,848 million compared to £5,799 million, profit attributable to owners of the parent of £3,115 million or 166.6 pence per diluted share compared to £3,904 million or 204.6 pence per diluted share, adjusted diluted per share of 208.1 pence compared to 216.6 pence, net cash generated from operating activities of £3,716 million compared to £4,436 million, purchases of property, plant and equipment of £529 million compared to £574 million, purchases of intangibles of £163 million compared to £147 million and free cash flow of £2,507 million compared to £3,371 million for the last year. Earnings per share were 8% higher at constant rates. This was largely driven by the good profit growth supported by the performance of associates and the contribution of the share buyback program in the first half of the year. Net debt increased by £650 million to £10.2 billion compared to £9,515 million a year ago. Adjusted profit before taxation was £5,698 million compared to £6,077 million a year ago. Adjusted profit attributable to owners of the parent was £3,891 million compared to £4,133 million a year ago. Cash generated from operations was £2,660 million compared to £2,982 million a year ago. The company expected gross CapEx to be around to £750 million in 2015, as it continues to support investment in the SAP deployment in innovation and next-generation products. If ForEx rates were to stay where they are now, operating profit and EPS will be reduced by more than 5%. This will impact constant currency performance and will be in addition to the 5% translational impact on EPS that Ben mentioned earlier. Profit growth expected to be largely skewed to the second half of the year.
