Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE / Euronext Paris: PM) today announced its 2012 full-year and fourth-quarter results.

“Our robust performance in 2012 across key operational metrics was all the more impressive given the spectacular results in 2011 and the continuing economic woes affecting all southern European nations,” said Louis C. Camilleri, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer.

“We achieved organic volume growth of 1.3%, grew reported net revenues and operating companies income, excluding currency and acquisitions, by 5.6% and 8.4%, respectively, and increased our total international market share as well as that of our flagship brand, Marlboro.

“Every year since our spin-off in 2008, we have met or exceeded our adjusted diluted mid to long-term annual EPS growth target, excluding currency, of 10%-12%. The forecast we issued today for 2013 projects another year of solid performance. This consistency underpins our ability to generously reward our long-term shareholders with superior returns.”

Conference Call

Camilleri, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, and Jacek Olczak, Chief Financial Officer, with members of the investment community and news media, will be webcast at 1:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on February 7, 2013.

2012 FULL-YEAR AND FOURTH-QUARTER CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

In this press release, “PMI” refers to Philip Morris International Inc. and its subsidiaries. References to total international cigarette market, defined as worldwide cigarette volume excluding the United States, total cigarette market, total market and market shares are PMI estimates based on the latest available data from a number of internal and external sources and may, in defined instances, exclude the People’s Republic of China and/or PMI’s duty-free business. The term “net revenues” refers to operating revenues from the sale of our products, excluding excise taxes and net of sales and promotion incentives. Operating companies income, or “OCI”, is defined as operating income before general corporate expenses and the amortization of intangibles. PMI’s management evaluates business segment performance and allocates resources based on OCI. Management also reviews OCI, OCI margins and earnings per share, or “EPS”, on an adjusted basis (which may exclude the impact of currency and other items such as acquisitions, asset impairment and exit costs, discrete tax items and unusual items), earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization, or “EBITDA”, free cash flow, defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, and net debt. PMI believes it is appropriate to disclose these measures as they improve comparability and help investors analyze business performance and trends. Non-GAAP measures used in this release should be considered neither in isolation nor as a substitute for the financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Comparisons are to the same prior-year period unless otherwise stated. For a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to corresponding GAAP measures, see the relevant schedules provided with this release.

EUROPEAN UNION REGION (EU)

2012 Full-Year

In the EU, net revenues decreased by 7.4% to $8.5 billion, due primarily to unfavorable currency of $716 million. Excluding currency, net revenues increased by 0.3%, mainly reflecting favorable pricing of $475 million, driven by France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and Switzerland, partly offset by unfavorable volume/mix of $445 million, predominantly due to a lower total market and share in Italy, France, Portugal and Spain.

Excluding the impact of currency, adjusted operating companies income margin declined by 0.5 percentage points to 49.5%, as detailed on Schedule 15, primarily as a result of the aforementioned higher manufacturing and marketing costs.

The total cigarette market in the EU declined by 6.3% to 520 billion units, due primarily to tax-driven price increases, the unfavorable economic and employment environment, particularly in southern Europe, the growth of the OTP category, and the increased prevalence of illicit trade.

PMI’s cigarette shipment volume in the EU declined by 6.4%, due principally to a lower total market across the Region. Shipment volume of Marlboro decreased by 4.6%, mainly due to a lower total market, partially offset by higher share. Shipment volume of L&M was down by 4.1%. Shipment volume of Chesterfield was up by 4.7%.

2012 Fourth-Quarter

In the EU, net revenues decreased by 6.6% to $2.1 billion, due primarily to unfavorable currency of $133 million, largely reflecting the strengthening of the U.S. dollar to the Euro compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding currency, net revenues decreased by 0.5%, mainly due to unfavorable volume/mix of $105 million, predominantly reflecting a lower total market and share, and unfavorable trade inventory movements, in France and Italy, and a lower total market and share in Portugal. The decrease was partly offset by favorable pricing of $93 million, driven by France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Operating companies income decreased by 5.6% to $955 million, due primarily to unfavorable currency of $78 million. Excluding the unfavorable impact of currency, operating companies income increased by 2.1%, reflecting higher pricing and favorable asset impairment and exit costs compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, partly offset by higher marketing costs, principally reflecting marketing investment behind the “Be Marlboro” marketing campaign.

Excluding the impact of currency, adjusted operating companies income margin was up by 0.5 percentage points to 47.3%, as detailed on Schedule 11.

PMI’s shipments of OTP, in cigarette equivalent units, grew by 4.1%, reflecting a higher total market and share. The decline in the growth rate compared to the 2012 full-year growth rate principally reflects the impact of excise tax-driven price increases, notably in Italy.

PMI’s business risks include: significant increases in cigarette-related taxes; the imposition of discriminatory excise tax structures; fluctuations in customer inventory levels due to increases in product taxes and prices; increasing marketing and regulatory restrictions, often with the goal of reducing or preventing the use of tobacco products; health concerns relating to the use of tobacco products and exposure to environmental tobacco smoke; litigation related to tobacco use; intense competition; the effects of global and individual country economic, regulatory and political developments; changes in adult smoker behavior; lost revenues as a result of counterfeiting, contraband and cross-border purchases; governmental investigations; unfavorable currency exchange rates and currency devaluations; adverse changes in applicable corporate tax laws; adverse changes in the cost and quality of tobacco and other agricultural products and raw materials; and the integrity of its information systems. PMI’s future profitability may also be adversely affected should it be unsuccessful in its attempts to produce products with the potential to reduce the risk of smoking-related diseases; if it is unable to successfully introduce new products, promote brand equity, enter new markets or improve its margins through increased prices and productivity gains; if it is unable to expand its brand portfolio internally or through acquisitions and the development of strategic business relationships; or if it is unable to attract and retain the best global talent.

PMI is further subject to other risks detailed from time to time in its publicly filed documents, including the Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. PMI cautions that the foregoing list of important factors is not a complete discussion of all potential risks and uncertainties. PMI does not undertake to update any forward-looking statement that it may make from time to time, except in the normal course of its public disclosure obligations.
