LONDON, July 26 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ --

SUMMARY

SIX MONTHS RESULTS -- 2007 2006 Change

unauditeAAAAAAA> Revenue GBP4,725m GBP4,808m -2%

Profit from o大发快三开奖结果perations GBP1,492m GBP1,325m +13%

Adjusted diluted earnings

per share 53.51p 49.11p +9%

Interim dividend per share 18.6p 15.7p +18%

The reported profit from operations was 13 per cent higher at GBP1,492 million, or 10 per cent higher if exceptional items are excluded. However, profit from operationAAAAAcluding exceptional items, would have been 18 per cent higher at comparable rates of exchange, with all regionAAAAcept for America-Pacific contributing to this strong result.

Group volumes from subsidiaries were 330 billion, a decrease of 2 per cent, mainly as a result of the high level of trade buying in some markets at the end of 2006, supply chain disruptions in the Middle East and the loss of StiX in Germany. The four global drive brands achieved an overall volume growth of 6 per cent, which led to share improvements in many markets. The reported Group revenue declined by 2 per cent to GBP4,725 million but, at comparable rates of exchange, would have increased by 4 per cent as a result of more favourable pricing and better product mix.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share rose by 9 per cent, principally benefiting from the increase in profit from operations. Basic earnings per share were higher at 52.94p (2006 48.38p).

The Board has declared an interim dividend of 18.6p, an 18 per cent increase on last year, to be paid on 12 September 2007.

The Chairman, Jan du Plessis, commented "As a result of global drive brand growth and improved pricing, British American Tobacco has had a strong six months, despite the substantial impact of foreign exchange. However, there have recently been significant excise increases in a number of key markets, while the level of our investment in expanding distribution and rolling out our global drive brands is set to rise over the next few months. We therefore expect our growth in profit from operations at comparable rates of exchange to slow in the second half of the year."
