LONDON, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

In a video interview, Imperial Tobacco CEO Alison Cooper gives an update on the company's performance at the half year, covering brands, markets, Fontem Ventures and the overall outlook.

Cooper says the group has been on a "transition journey" with progress being made internally and externally.

"Internally there has been fantastic progress against a number of initiatives to support the transition agenda. Externally, clearly the focus is on the outputs of the results and, again, you can see some really good growth coming through there, particularly the quality of growth with our Growth Brands and our Specialist Brands."

In an accompanying interview, Oliver Tant, the recently appointed CFO, explains the impact that the stock optimisation process has had on the results and outlines the benefits that will bring in the longer term. He also comments on cash conversion, cost savings and the dividend.
