LONDON, February 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
BAT unveiled 2015 full-year results showing revenues up 5.4% and profits up 4% on a constant currency basis.
In a video interview, CEO Nicandro Durante pointed out that had it not been for a strong currency headwind, EPS would have been up 16% instead of the reported 10% rise.
FD Ben Stevens outlines the extent to which the results were impacted by both transactional and translational FX.
Both confirm the company's conviction to continue to deliver high, single figure EPS growth.
The interviews and transcripts are available now on http://www.bat.com/latestresults.
