BATS? Canadian subsidiary and the Canadian subsidiaries of Philip Morris International and Japan Tobacco International have had their request to cancel a CAD1.1 billion provisional execution order granted by the Quebec Court of Appeal.



The provisional execution order was imposed by the Superior Court of Quebec as part of a CAD15.6 billion judgement in two Class Action cases, issued on June 1st 2015. Imperial Tobacco Canada will now focus on its appeal at the Quebec Court of Appeal against the original Superior Court of Quebec Class Action judgement issued on 1st June 2015 which the company argues ignored the reality that both adult consumers and governments have known about the risks associated with smoking for decades.



This Court of Appeal process is expected to conclude in the next two-to-three years with a potential further appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada. BATS was not a party to the proceeding and is not a party to the original judgement.

(Official Notice)
The judgement in two Canadian class action lawsuits has been publicly issued at the Quebec Superior Court in Canada on 1st June 2015 following a private release which was made on 27 May 2015. The judgement follows a ten year legal challenge against British American Tobacco?s Canadian subsidiary, Imperial Tobacco Canada as well as Philip Morris International and Japan Tobacco International?s Canadian subsidiaries.



The cases were brought against the three Canadian tobacco manufacturers on behalf of two groups of Plaintiffs: smokers, who smoked a minimum of 12 pack-years and who were diagnosed with lung, throat and laryngeal cancer or emphysema prior to 12 March 2012; and smokers who were addicted to nicotine at the time the proceedings were commenced (September 1998) and remained addicted until at least 21 February 2005.



BATS was not a party to the proceeding and is not a party to the judgement, only its Canadian subsidiary, Imperial Tobacco Canada. On 1st June 2015, the judge publicly issued a ruling in favour of the Plaintiffs awarding a total of CAD15.6billion in moral and punitive damages, including interest. Imperial Tobacco Canada?s share of the total damages would be CAD10.4 billion. The judgement also stated that if an appeal was to be made, a provisional execution order would require the defendants to pay CAD1.131billion between them. Imperial Tobacco Canada?s share of the provisional execution order would be CAD743 million.



There are strong legal grounds with which to challenge both the overall judgement, and to seek a stay of the provisional execution order, which Imperial Tobacco Canada will do within 30 days of the original 27 May ruling. As such, no payments will be made until the request to stay the provisional execution order has been heard and a judgement made.

(Official Notice)
BATS, through its Brazilian controlled company British American Tobacco Presta??o de Servi?os Ltda., has filed with the Brazilian securities regulator, the Comiss?o de Valores Mobili?rios (CVM), a request to register a public tender offer to acquire up to all of the 24.7% of Souza Cruz shares which are not currently owned by BATS and to delist the company. The offer for Souza Cruz?s shares is at a price per share of BRL26.75, to be paid in cash, in Brazilian Reais, and to be reduced by any dividend paid by Souza Cruz. A price of BRL26.75 per share would represent a premium of 30.0% to Souza Cruz?s volume weighted average closing share price over the three months to Friday 20 February 2015 (being the last trading day before BATS?s possible offer for Souza Cruz was announced).



In accordance with the relevant Brazilian rules, N M Rothschild - Sons (Brasil) Limitada (Rothschild) was appointed as independent evaluator and has carried out an independent valuation of Souza Cruz as part of the offer process which has been filed with the CVM. On a discounted cashflow basis the Rothschild report gives a range of BRL22.09 to BRL24.54 per Souza Cruz share. The offer is still subject to prior approval by the CVM. Upon approval, a formal offer can be made by BAT which will remain subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent, including acceptance of the offer by two-thirds of the holders of free float shares that qualify for the auction. The terms and conditions of the offer are described in further detail in the form of notice of the offer (Edital) which will be available to view on the CVM?s website.

BATS has announced that it has commenced a competitive tender process to appoint new external auditors for 2015 onwards. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) have been the company?s auditors since it listed on the London Stock Exchange in September 1998.



PwC, having completed the audit of the company?s 2014 financial statements, will not seek re- appointment as the group?s auditors at the 2015 AGM. A resolution at the AGM will ask shareholders to confirm the appointment of the successful firm following the tender process.



This situation has arisen as a result of proposed litigation by a group subsidiary against PwC. The potential claims against PwC, which have been assigned to the group, arose from work carried out by PwC in relation to the audit of the accounts of a third party. These claims do not concern the audit of any BAT group company.



Given the scale and global footprint of the company three firms have been invited to take part in the tender process being, Deloitte LLP, Ernst - Young LLP, and KPMG LLP.

British American Tobacco p.l.c. subsidiary, Imperial Tobacco Canada Limited (Imperial Tobacco), reaches agreement in principle to settle legacy litigation with the Flintkote Company for USD575 million Imperial Tobacco has reached an agreement in principle with The Flintkote Company (Flintkote) - a U.S. company formerly engaged in the production and sale of asbestos-containing products - for a total of USD575 million for claims related to certain disputed dividends and existing and potential asbestos claims.



The Flintkote case is a legacy litigation that began in 2006 and is completely unrelated to Imperial Tobacco Canada?s tobacco activities. The asbestos company, Flintkote, was a subsidiary of Genstar Corporation, which was later acquired by Imperial Tobacco?s corporate predecessor, Imasco Limited, in 1986. It is therefore a former indirect corporate subsidiary of Imperial Tobacco.



The 2006 litigation sought recovery from Imperial Tobacco Canada of certain dividends and other transfers received in 1986 and 1987 after Imasco acquired Genstar Corporation. The litigation also seeks to hold Imperial Tobacco liable for Flintkote?s asbestos liabilities. Today?s agreement in principle of the dividend claims and the asbestos related liabilities, brings this long running litigation to an end. Under the terms of the proposed settlement, Imperial Tobacco will obtain protection from current and potential future Flintkote related asbestos liability claims in the United States.

The settlement agreement now provides closure on a legacy file, allowing Imperial Tobacco to focus on its current business by finally and completely resolving the existing Flintkote litigation and obtaining protections from potential future litigation related to Flintkote.



Note

In order to finalise the settlement, approval by the Bankruptcy Court in Delaware and the District Court will be required and this is expected to take place in the second or third quarter of 2015.

Prospects

Challenges persist in 2014. Economic recovery is still fragile, particularly across southern Europe. However, we have shown a consistent ability to improve our operating margin and grow market share. The pricing environment also remains good. We have a great brand portfolio, market-leading innovations and an outstanding range of high quality products. We maintain our firm commitment to invest in key growth markets and new product categories. Our scientific research into harm reduction, for instance, is helping us develop next-generation tobacco products, such as heat-not-burn, and nicotine-based products, like e-cigarettes. In short, we have the expertise, the talented people and the global reach to succeed. Consumers have always been core to our success. We will continue to meet their needs by providing them with the superior and innovative products they want. We have a compelling strategy and proven capabilities in place to make this happen. I look forward to a gradually improving economic environment and BAT is well positioned to take advantage of this when it comes.

The buy-back programme will be managed by an independent third party, which makes its trading decisions in relation to the company's securities independently of, and uninfluenced by, the company.



Any acquisitions will be effected within certain preset parameters, and in accordance with both the company's general authority to repurchase shares and Chapter 12 of the Listing Rules which requires that the maximum price is an amount equal to 105 per cent of the average market value of the company's shares for the five business days immediately preceding the date on which the company's shares are purchased.



The company confirmed that it currently has no unpublished price sensitive information.

(Official Notice)
BATS notes that, since the announcement of a recommended final dividend on 23 February 2012, the new dividend tax has been introduced in South Africa and the JSE Listing Requirements were amended with effect from 1 April 2012 to require the disclosure of additional information in relation to the dividend payment. The purpose of this announcement is to provide that additional information.



Dividend tax will be withheld from the amount of the gross final dividend of 1 078.44464 SA cents per ordinary share paid to shareholders on the South African branch register at the rate of 15 per cent unless a shareholder qualifies for an exemption. After dividend tax has been withheld, the net dividend will be 916.67794 SA cents per ordinary share. The final dividend is subject to approval by shareholders at the company's annual general meeting to be held in London on 26 April 2012. Assuming such approval by shareholders, the final dividend will be paid by the company to shareholders on the main register and the South African branch register on 3 May 2012. With specific reference to South Africa, the company, as a non-resident, was not subject to the secondary tax on companies (STC) regime which used to be applicable and therefore no STC credits are available for set-off against the dividend tax liability on the final dividend.

Dividend

The board is recommending a final dividend of GBP88.4p, payable on 3 May 2012. The total dividend in respect of 2011 is GBP126.5p, an increase of 11%.



Outlook

BATS continues to monitor acquisition opportunities around the world and will participate where it makes financial and strategic sense to do so. The expansion of illicit trade remains a threat globally, driven by sharp excise increases and pressure on consumers' disposable income. BATS supports the development of the World Health Organisation's Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) protocol aimed at creating an international regulatory framework for addressing illicit trade. However, we remain critical of other measures proposed by the FCTC that may drive significant excise increases, retail display bans and plain packaging - all of these measures could play into the hands of organised crime by creating ideal conditions for further increases in illicit trade. Management is confident that the group are well placed to take advantage of the substantial opportunities ahead for the business and that the company can continue to deliver superior shareholder returns.

Revenue increased to GBP14.9 billion (GBP14.2 billion). Net attributable profit rose to GBP2.9 billion (GBP2.7 billion). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis grew to GBP160.9pps (GBP144.1pps).



Dividend

A final ordinary dividend of GBP81pps has been declared.



Outlook

Few would disagree that the industry looks very robust for the foreseeable future. Forecasts suggest that the world market is likely to remain fairly stable at between 5 and 6 trillion cigarettes, more than 40 per cent of which are sold in China. Even where BATS sees volumes decline, the company expects overall market values to grow, due to changes in the product mix. Consumer-led innovations will continue to help build premium products and the strength of the brands.



Looking at market size in isolation, management has done extrapolations that cover the next 20 years and that's where demographics become important. Trends indicate that individual smokers will consume fewer cigarettes each and smaller percentages of populations will smoke. However, with the world's population predicted to increase to seven billion by the end of 2012 and nine billion by the end of 2050, we expect there will be a very sustainable and profitable tobacco industry delivering value for a long time to come.



The World Health Organisation has forecast that there are likely to be more smokers in the year 2050 than there are today, despite the impact of regulation. That is certainly a plausible scenario given the demographics.

Business Report noted that BATS' South African subsidiary, British American Tobacco South Africa ("Batsa") may have to close its Heidelberg factory if the Department of Health's draft regulations concerning the Tobacco Product Control Act are implemented. The new law will require all cigarettes sold in South Africa to be produced with permeability bands that prevent cigarettes from burning all the down when left unattended. These cigarettes are known as reduced ignition propensity (RIP) cigarettes. Batsa and parent BATS say that the new regulations might have negative consequences for the group, leading to the closing of the Heidelberg factory, the loss of an estimated 1 200 jobs in the economy, and reduced export revenue.

Business Day highlighted that British American Tobacco increased the profit on its South African operations in the six months to June, even as it suffered a significant decline in cigarettes sold as illegal imports surged. London and Johannesburg- listed British American Tobacco, which has a 90% share of SA's cigarette market, said profit rose due to increased pricing, cost cutting and the rand's strengthening against the pound over the period.

Revenue increased by 8% to GBP7.3 billion (GBPGBP6.8 billion) and profit from operations was up by 8% to GBP2.3 billion (GBP2.1 billion). Net attributable profit rose to GBP1.5 billion (GBP1.5 billion). In addition, headline earnings on a per share basis grew to GBP80.2pps (GBP76.7pps).



Dividend

An interim ordinary dividend of GBP33.2pps has been declared.



Outlook

The group has, at the date of this report, sufficient financing available for its estimated existing requirements for at least the next twelve months. This, together with the proven ability to generate cash from trading activities, the performance of the group's Global Drive Brands, its leading market positions in a number of countries and its broad geographical spread, as well as numerous contracts with established customers and suppliers across different geographic areas and industries, provides the directors with the confidence that the group is well placed to manage its business risks successfully in the context of current financial conditions and the general outlook in the general global economy.

BATS signed cooperation agreement with European Union to tackle illicit trade in tobacco, British American Tobacco said that it has entered into a cooperation agreement with the European Commission and the member states of the European Union ( "EU" ) to collectively tackle the problem of illicit trade in tobacco. Under the agreement, BATS will be joining forces with and working alongside the European Commission and the law enforcement authorities of the member states. The agreement will see cooperation in a number of areas for the purpose of tackling illicit trade in tobacco and includes the funding by British American Tobacco of $200 million (Euro134m) over the next 20 years. Jack Bowles, director of Western Europe for British American Tobacco commented: "This agreement marks a significant step in strengthening cooperation in the fight against tobacco crime throughout the EU. "Along with the European Commission and the member states, we are sending out a very strong message to the criminals who counterfeit our products and evade taxes by smuggling, their activities will not be tolerated. We are confident that by working alongside the European Commission and the Member States, we will make a serious impact on the levels of illicit trade in tobacco." British American Tobacco sees illicit trade as a major threat to legitimate tobacco companies, so it initiated the discussions with the European Commission for an agreement to tackle the problem jointly. The total losses sustained by the EU and the Member States as a result of illicit tobacco have run into billions of Euros every year.

On 28 October 2008, British American Tobacco p.l.c. (the "company") obtained approval from the South African Reserve Bank (the "SARB") for the secondary or inward listing of its ordinary shares (the "shares") on the JSE Ltd in South Africa to enable the restructuring of the shareholdings in the company held by Remgro Ltd and Compagnie Financiere Richemont S.A. to take place (the "restructurings"). The restructurings resulted in the receipt of shares by South African institutional investors as part of the utilisation of their general foreign portfolio investment allowance. Being aware that the receipt of the shares could result in South African institutional investors exceeding their investment allowances of inward listed shares, the SARB granted a dispensation of a period of 24 months from October 2008 to South African institutional investors in order that they may realign their portfolios in respect of the amount of inward listed shares that they could hold.



On 20 May 2010, the company received notification from the SARB that the South African minister of finance has decided to extend the previously approved 24 months period for South African institutional investors to realign their portfolios by another 24 months until 31 October 2012. The company was also notified by the SARB that the decision to extend the period of 24 months was taken in the context of the South African National Treasury's review of the current policy on inward listings and the finalisation of the prudential regulatory framework for foreign exposure by institutional investors in South Africa. Further, the company has been advised that in the event of the implementation of such a revised policy in South Africa prior to the expiry of the approved extension period, then this new dispensation would fall away and the new policy would apply.

Group revenue for the nine months grew strongly in constant currency terms, driven by the continued good pricing momentum and volume growth from the acquisitions made in the middle of last year, as well as the acquisition of PT Bentoel Internasional Investama Tbk in Indonesia on 17 June 2009. All regions contributed to this good result. Revenue benefited further from the favourable impact of significant exchange rate movements.



The acquisition of the cigarette and snus businesses of ST was subject to regulatory approval which was received on the condition that the group divest a small number of local trademarks, primarily in Norway. The disposal of the trademarks was completed earlier this year and the total proceeds resulted in a gain of GBP2 million. On 17 June 2009, the group acquired an 85 % stake in Indonesia's fourth largest cigarette maker PT Bentoel Internasional Investama Tbk (Bentoel) for USD494 million (GBP303 million). A public tender offer for the remaining shares was announced after the acquisition and was completed by 26 August 2009, resulting in the acquisition of a further 14% per share in the company, for GBP52 million, bringing the total shareholding in the Bentoel group to 99.7%. On 20 October 2009, it was announced that Bentoel and BAT Indonesia decided to enter into a merger plan whereby BAT Indonesia will merge into Bentoel. The Bentoel name will be retained and the company will remain listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange.

(Official Notice)
The Competition Tribunal has today 25 June 2009, dismissed the application by the Competition Commission to impose a fine on British American Tobacco South Africa (BATSA), of up to 10% of its annual turnover, for abusing its dominance by engaging in exclusionary acts in contravention of sections 8(c), and 8(d)(i) of the Competition Act.



Both the Competition Commission and the complainant JT International South Africa ("JTI"), referred a complaint to the Tribunal. They allege that BATSA, a wholly owned subsidiary of British American Tobacco plc, is dominant in the market for the supply of manufactured cigarettes in South Africa. They further allege that certain agreements concluded between BATSA and selected cigarette retailers and certain of BATSA`s retailer incentive programmes incentivised the retailers to market and sell BATSA brands irrespective of the price and/or quality advantages that competitor brands may offer consumers over BATSA brands and irrespective of customer demand. It was also alleged that these agreements and programmes ensure that BATSA secured preferential, alternatively exclusive, access to the point of sale for promotional purposes. It is these latter allegations - BATSA`s alleged dominance of the points of sale - that were most vigorously pursued by the applicants. This conduct, insist the applicants, redounds to the ultimate detriment of cigarette consumers whose choice is restricted and who, in consequence of this reduced competition, are obliged to pay higher prices than would otherwise be the case.

BATS has acquired from Rajawali Group and other shareholders an 85% stake in Indonesia's fourth largest cigarette maker PT Bentoel Internasional Investama Tbk for USD494 million (GBP303 million). The price is equivalent to IDR873 per share, a premium of 20% over Bentoel's closing price of IDR730 per share on 15 June 2009. A public tender offer for the remaining shares will be announced in due course and is expected to be completed by the end of August 2009. Assuming that all the shares are tendered, the overall transaction would value 100 per cent of Bentoel at approximately USD580 million (GBP356 million).

(Official Notice)
Highlights for the three months to 31 March 2009:

*Strong revenue growth at both constant and current exchange rates

*Volumes from subsidiaries increased 7% to 170 billion

*All four Global Drive Brands grew volume, with overall growth of 7%



Trading update

British American Tobacco had a good start to 2009 and is continuing to build on the success achieved in 2008. Group revenue for the three months grew strongly in constant currency terms, driven by the continued good pricing momentum and volume growth from the acquisitions made in the middle of last year (Skandinavisk Tobakskompagni (ST) and Tekel). All regions contributed to this good result. Revenue benefited further from the favourable impact of significant exchange rate movements which more than offset the adverse transactional impact of exchange rates on costs. Group volumes from subsidiaries were 170 billion, up 7%, mainly as a result of the acquisitions of ST and Tekel. Excluding the benefits of these acquisitions, volumes were in line with last year with premium volumes slightly ahead.



Trading environment

This performance was achieved against general trading conditions which became tougher during the quarter with lower industry volumes in a number of key markets and a deceleration of growth in the premium segment. In some markets, particularly in Central and Eastern Europe, there was down-trading to illicit trade as a result of excise increases.

Prospects

British American Tobacco continued to deliver excellent results and completed two important acquisitions. Looking ahead, the group remains alert to the possibilities of downtrading. However, the well balanced portfolio of brands covers all major price points, while the groups geographic diversity further mitigates the risks for shareholders. The group are very much aware of the potential challenges but the inherent strength of our businesses, the brands and the people should make the group more resilient than most.

In the UK High Court of Justice, The Honourable Mr Justice Henderson handed down his judgment in the case of The Test Claimants in the FII Group Litigation versus The Commissioners for Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC). BAT is the principal test claimant in this litigation. The judgment is complex and extends to 150 pages. BAT will be studying the judgment in detail with external counsel and deciding on the future course of action.



This judgment applies the decision of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in December 2006. The judgment concludes, among many other things, that dividends received from EU subsidiaries should be, and should have been, exempt from UK taxation. It also concludes that certain dividends received before 5 April 1999 from the EU and, in some limited circumstances after 1993 from outside the EU, should have been treated as franked investment income with the consequence that advance corporation tax need not have been paid. Claims for the repayment of UK tax incurred where the dividends were from the EU can be made back to 1973. The judgment concerns issues of principle and the quantification of the claim is to be the subject of a subsequent hearing. The tentative conclusion reached in the judgment would produce recovery of about GBP1.2 billion for BAT but is subject to a further reference to the ECJ.



BAT cannot comment on what the views or reaction of HMRC is to this judgment, however the issues to be resolved in this case are so important to business and HMRC that the judgment may well be subject to appeal to the Court of Appeal and / or reference to the ECJ and this could take three to four years to resolve.
