Further to the announcement by the Company on 20 September 2018, Nicandro Durante has retired from the Company as Chief Executive with effect from 1 April 2019.

As required by section 430(2B) of the Companies Act 2006, the elements of Nicandro Durante's remuneration which are consequent upon his retirement, and which will be paid at or following the date of his retirement, are stated below; he will not receive any payment for loss of office or any other payments in relation to the cessation of his employment. Mr Durante's remuneration arrangements are in accordance with the Company's current shareholder approved Directors' Remuneration Policy. Further details will be included in the relevant Directors' Remuneration Reports in the Company's Annual Report and Accounts.

Short-term incentives:

Deferred Share Bonus Scheme (DSBS) - outstanding awards of shares

Determined by the Remuneration Committee on 25 February 2019 as a 'good leaver' with reference to the rules of the DSBS; he will receive full and immediate vesting of all outstanding DSBS awards as at 1 April 2019 amounting to 114,175 ordinary shares.

100% cash only; no award of shares under DSBS

Annual performance-related bonus (IEIS) for the year ending 31 December 2019 - cash award of £408,253 receivable; award for the period from 1 January 2019 to 1 April 2019 made on the basis of 'on-target' performance in accordance with the rules of the IEIS.

Long-term incentives:

Determined as a 'good leaver' by the Remuneration Committee on 25 February 2019 with reference to the rules of the LTIP; Nicandro Durante's outstanding LTIP awards at the date of his retirement (1 April 2019) are affected as follows:

Pension-related benefits:

British American Tobacco UK Pension Fund

Unfunded unapproved retirement benefit scheme (UK UURBS)

Following his retirement, Nicandro Durante will be in receipt of a pension (and may take part or all of his entitlement as a lump sum) in accordance with the provisions of the UK UURBS which will generate an initial annual pension (before any commutation) of approximately £181,693 which will increase in future years in line with the provisions of the UK UURBS. A pension in payment from Fundacao Albino Souza Cruz (FASC) S.A., a Brazilian registered wholly-owned subsidiary of the Group has been in payment since April 2012 and will continue to be paid. This currently amounts to £445,905 per annum, after adjusting for currency exchange, reflecting his 31 years' service at Souza Cruz.

He is also eligible to be reimbursed to an amount not exceeding £30,000 for any international tax advice he may receive.
