2016 THIRD-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 tax-paid 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. National market share for HeatSticks in Japan is defined as the total sales volume for HeatSticks as a percentage of the total estimated sales volume for cigarettes and HeatSticks. "North Africa" is defined as Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia. "OTP" is defined as other tobacco products. "EEMA" is defined as Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa and includes PMI's international duty free business. In the fourth quarter of 2015, to further align with the Member State composition of the European Union, PMI transferred the management of its operations in Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania and Slovenia from its EEMA segment to its European Union segment, resulting in the reclassification of current and prior year amounts between the two segments. The reclassification was not material to the respective segments’ results. Operating companies income, or “OCI, is defined as operating income, excluding general corporate expenses and the amortization of intangibles, plus equity (income)/loss in unconsolidated subsidiaries, net. PMI's management evaluates business segment performance and allocates resources based on OCI. “Adjusted EBITDA” is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, excluding asset impairment and exit costs, discrete tax items and unusual items. 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), as well as 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 neither considered 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 the most directly comparable GAAP measures, see the relevant schedules provided with this press release. "Reduced-Risk Products" (“RRPs”) is the term the company uses to refer to products with the potential to reduce individual risk and population harm in comparison to smoking cigarettes. PMI’s RRPs are in various stages of development and commercialization, and we are conducting extensive and rigorous scientific studies to determine whether we can support claims for such products of reduced exposure to harmful and potentially harmful constituents in smoke, and ultimately claims of reduced disease risk, when compared to smoking cigarettes. Before making any such claims, we will rigorously evaluate the full set of data from the relevant scientific studies to determine whether they substantiate reduced exposure or risk. Any such claims may also be subject to government review and authorization, as is the case in the United States today. Trademarks and service marks in this press release that are the registered property of, or licensed by, the subsidiaries of PMI, are italicized.

In the quarter, net revenues, excluding excise taxes, of $7.0 billion increased by 0.8%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $196 million, net revenues, excluding excise taxes, increased by 3.6%, driven by a favorable pricing variance of $440 million from across all Regions, principally EEMA, mainly Russia and Turkey. The favorable pricing variance was partly offset by unfavorable volume/mix of $189 million across all Regions, principally EEMA, mainly Algeria and Russia.

In the quarter, operating companies income of $3.1 billion was up by 1.2%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $94 million, operating companies income increased by 4.3%, mainly resulting from a favorable pricing variance driven by all Regions, partly offset by: unfavorable volume/mix of $209 million, primarily in EEMA, mainly North Africa and Russia; and higher costs, mainly in support of PMI's Reduced-Risk Products.

Adjusted operating companies income and margin are shown in the table below and detailed in Schedule 11. Adjusted operating companies income, excluding unfavorable currency, increased by 4.3%. Adjusted operating companies income margin, excluding currency, increased by 0.2 points to 44.0%, reflecting the factors mentioned above, as detailed on Schedule 11.

2016 Third-Quarter and Nine Months Year-to-Date

In the quarter, the estimated total cigarette market decreased by 1.4% to 137.9 billion units, mainly reflecting the lower contribution of two favorable factors in 2015, namely the estimated positive impact of immigration and a recovery from illicit trade, partly offset by improved macroeconomics and a lower prevalence of e-vapor products. The estimated total OTP market decreased by 2.6% to 39.8 billion cigarette equivalent units, reflecting a lower total fine cut market, down by 2.7% to 36.9 billion cigarette equivalent units.

Year-to-date, the estimated total cigarette market decreased by 0.2% to 382.4 billion units, reflecting improved macroeconomics, a lower prevalence of illicit trade and e-vapor products and, in certain geographies, the estimated positive impact of immigration, which was mainly concentrated in the first half of 2016. The estimated total OTP market decreased by 0.8% to 114.9 billion cigarette equivalent units, reflecting a lower total fine cut market, down by 0.8% to 106.8 billion cigarette equivalent units.

In the quarter, the estimated total cigarette market increased by 2.3%. Excluding the net impact of estimated trade inventory movements, the total market increased by 1.3%, partly reflecting a lower prevalence of illicit trade and e-vapor products. The increase in PMI's cigarette shipment volume mainly reflected the higher total cigarette market and market share growth, driven by Marlboro, as well as the launch of Philip Morris 25s and 100s in January 2016. The estimated total industry fine cut category of 3.9 billion cigarette equivalent units increased by 1.5%. PMI's market share of the category increased by 0.7 points to 25.3%.

Year-to-date, the estimated total cigarette market increased by 0.8%, partly reflecting a lower prevalence of illicit trade and e-vapor products. The increase in PMI's cigarette shipment volume mainly reflected market share growth, driven by the same dynamics as those in the quarter. The estimated total industry fine cut category of 11.3 billion cigarette equivalent units increased by 3.7%. PMI's market share of the category increased by 0.4 points to 25.3%.

In the quarter, the moderate decline of the estimated total cigarette market of 0.5% principally reflected a lower prevalence of illicit trade and a decrease in the rate of out-switching to other tobacco products. The increase in PMI's cigarette shipment volume was driven by higher market share, principally Marlboro, benefiting from marketing support. The estimated total industry fine cut category of 10.7 billion cigarette equivalent units decreased by 0.5%. PMI's market share of the category decreased by 1.5 points to 10.7%.

Year-to-date, the moderate decline of the estimated total cigarette market of 0.3% principally reflected a lower prevalence of illicit trade and the estimated favorable impact of immigration. The decrease in PMI's cigarette shipment volume reflected the lower total market. The estimated total industry fine cut category of 30.6 billion cigarette equivalent units increased by 0.6%. PMI's market share of the category decreased by 1.1 points to 11.6%.

In the quarter, the estimated total cigarette market increased by 0.2%. Excluding the net impact of estimated trade inventory movements, the total market increased by 1.2%, reflecting the normalization of the market following the disruptive excise tax increase of 120% in January 2015. The decline in PMI's cigarette shipment volume was due to lower market share, reflecting the impact of new brand launches by PMI's principal competitor. The decline in market share of Virginia S. reflected the continued morphing of Virginia Super Slims into Parliament Super Slims that began in January 2016.

Year-to-date, the growth of the estimated total cigarette market reflected the normalization of the market following the disruptive excise tax increase of 120% in January 2015. The growth in PMI's cigarette shipment volume reflected the higher estimated total market, partly offset by a decline of market share, reflecting the same dynamic as for the quarter.

In the Philippines, estimated industry size, PMI cigarette shipment volume and market share performance are shown in the table below.

Total 70.7 % 73.9 % (3.2) 72.4 % 73.1 % (0.7)

In the quarter, the estimated total cigarette market decreased by 13.2%, mainly due to the impact of price increases, notably in the fourth quarter of 2015 ahead of the January 2016 excise tax increase. The decline in PMI's cigarette shipment volume reflected the impact of these price increases, particularly on its low and super-low price brands, Fortune and Jackpot, partly offset by an increase in market share of Marlboro, benefiting from its narrowed price gap with lower-priced brands as a result of the excise tax increase.

Year-to-date, the estimated total cigarette market decreased by 11.8%, reflecting the same factors as those described for the quarter. The decline in PMI's cigarette shipment volume and market share reflected the same dynamics as for the quarter.

LATIN AMERICA & CANADA REGION

2016 Third-Quarter

Net revenues, excluding excise taxes, of $710 million decreased by 11.7%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $108 million, net revenues, excluding excise taxes, increased by 1.7%, driven by a favorable pricing variance of $72 million, principally in Argentina and Canada, partly offset by unfavorable volume/mix of $58 million, mainly due to unfavorable volume in Argentina, Brazil and Ecuador reflecting the impact of excise tax-driven price increases in 2016.

Operating companies income of $224 million decreased by 23.8%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $53 million, operating companies income decreased by 5.8%, principally due to unfavorable volume/mix of $50 million, mainly due to Argentina, Brazil and Ecuador, and higher costs, mainly inflation-driven in Argentina. The unfavorable volume/mix and higher costs were partly offset by a favorable pricing variance.

Adjusted operating companies income and margin are shown in the table below and detailed on Schedule 11. Adjusted operating companies income, excluding unfavorable currency decreased by 5.8%. Adjusted operating companies income margin, excluding unfavorable currency, decreased by 2.7 points to 33.9%, principally driven by the factors mentioned above, as detailed on Schedule 11.

2016 Third-Quarter and Nine Months Year-to-Date

In the quarter, PMI's cigarette shipment volume decreased by 8.0% to 21.2 billion units, predominantly due to Argentina, Brazil and Ecuador, all reflecting the impact of tax-driven price increases in 2016. While cigarette shipment volume of Marlboro decreased by 6.2% to 8.3 billion units, its market share increased by 0.1 point to an estimated 15.4%, primarily driven by Brazil, up by 0.1 point to 9.8% and Colombia, up by 0.2 points to 9.3%, partly offset by Argentina, down by 1.7 points to 22.1%, and Mexico, down by 0.4 points to 48.5%.

In the quarter, the estimated total cigarette market decreased by 14.1%, mainly due to a soft economic environment and the impact of the May 2016 excise tax increase that drove a more than 50% increase in average industry retail prices. The decrease in PMI's cigarette shipment volume was principally due to the lower total market. PMI's lower cigarette market share primarily reflected growth in competitors' super-low priced products benefiting from down-trading, partly offset by low-price Chesterfield in "Others." The capsule segment was up by 0.4 points to 16.9% of the total market; PMI's share of the segment decreased by 1.4 points to 72.5%.

Year-to-date, the decline of the estimated total cigarette market, PMI's cigarette shipment volume and market share reflected the same dynamics as for the quarter. The capsule segment was up by 1.5 points to 17.6% of the total market; PMI's share of the segment increased by 0.3 points to 73.4%.

In the quarter, the estimated total cigarette market decreased by 1.4%, or by 2.0% excluding the net impact of estimated competitors' trade inventory movements. The decrease in PMI's cigarette shipment volume was mainly due to: the lower estimated total market; and lower cigarette market share, unfavorably impacted by the inventory movements, due to Canadian Classics, and Accord and Number 7 in "Others," partly offset by the strong performance of premium Belmont, low-price Next, and super-low price Philip Morris in "Others" that benefited from down-trading.

Year-to-date, the estimated total cigarette market decreased by 1.5%. Excluding the impact of estimated competitors' trade inventory movements, the total market increased by 0.5%, mainly driven by improved consumer spending. The increase in PMI's cigarette shipment volume was principally due to higher market share, largely reflecting the strong performance of premium Belmont, low-price Next, and super-low price Philip Morris in "Others" that benefited from down-trading.

Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements

This press release contains projections of future results and other forward-looking statements. Achievement of future results is subject to risks, uncertainties and inaccurate assumptions. In the event that risks or uncertainties materialize, or underlying assumptions prove inaccurate, actual results could vary materially from those contained in such forward-looking statements. Pursuant to the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, PMI is identifying important factors that, individually or in the aggregate, could cause actual results and outcomes to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements made by PMI.

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 and commercialize products that have the potential to reduce individual risk and population harm; 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.
