  Chairman’s review

Continued expansion into other African countries will position Imperial to take maximum advantage of the considerable opportunities presented by the growth of African economies supported by a growing middle class.

Imperial achieved a pleasing result for its 2013 financial year. All divisions achieved operating profit growth as the portfolio proved to be resilient amid challenging trading conditions in South Africa and Europe.
