Board Change and Financial Guidance for 2013


Board Change

The Britvic board announces the appointment of Simon Litherland as Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect. Simon has been Managing Director of Britvic GB for more than a year, having joined from Diageo where he held a series of domestic and international roles over 20 years, latterly as managing director of Diageo GB. Paul Moody, outgoing  Chief Executive Officer, will retire from the company and will be available for six months on a consultancy basis to ensure a smooth handover to Simon.

Gerald Corbett, Britvic's Chairman, said: "Simon has an excellent track record and has done well with our GB business in the last year. He is ideally equipped to take the group to the next stage. I'd like to thank Paul for all he has done for Britvic over the last 16 years. It has been a long innings full of much success and we wish him well for the future."

Paul Moody said: "Now is the right time for me to explore new opportunities and I'm pleased to be doing so at a time when the business performance is showing encouraging signs of improvement in all markets. Simon joined us as part of the board's succession plan; I've enjoyed working with him and am confident in the company's future success."

Simon Litherland said: "I'm delighted to have the opportunity to lead Britvic at a group level. With our outstanding brands, a strong plan for the year and a hugely committed workforce, the business has great potential. The immediate task is to build on  the improving performance that we have seen in recent months. That will be my top priority."

-      EBIT currently expected to be in the range of £125m to £131m, including the previously guided £8m costs associated with the Fruit Shoot recall
