Imperial Brands Plc said on Tuesday it is off to a “good start” this year as the maker Gauloises and Winston cigarettes looks to capitalise on higher tobacco prices and “significantly reduced” losses in vaping. On aggregate it has started to increase its tobacco market share in its top five markets with gains in the United States, UK and Spain offsetting declines in Germany and Australia, the FTSE-listed company said. New CEO Stefan Bomhard two months ago laid out a five-year plan that focuses investment on five markets that generate 72% of its profits.
