Rebranding   Dropping the word "tobacco"
The group's ticker on the London Stock Exchange will change to IMB with effect from Monday and its new web address,, will also go live on that day.

Imperial, which makes Davidoff and Lambert & Butler, announced back in December that it intended to drop the word "tobacco" from its name.

The company said at the time: "Imperial Brands better reflects the dynamic, brand-focused business that we are now.

"Our business is built around great consumer brands. Our growth and specialist brands are the key assets in our portfolio and we continue to focus on building the contribution they make to our volume and revenue development."
