Imperial Tobacco Group Plc (ITYBY.PK,IMT.L) affirmed that the the Group's overall financial position and operational performance for the year to September 30, 2012 is in line with the board's expectations. Following a first quarter impacted by various external factors, the company has delivered strong revenue and profit growth in the second quarter, enhancing its revenue and profit momentum as it enters the second half.
