EUROPEAN UNION REGION (EU)

In the EU, net revenues decreased by 8.5% to $2.3 billion in the quarter, including unfavorable currency of $195 million. Excluding currency, net revenues decreased by 0.7%, mainly reflecting unfavorable volume/mix of $186 million, predominantly due to lower total markets across the Region, particularly in southern Europe. The decrease was partly offset by favorable pricing of $169 million, driven by France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and Switzerland. June year-to-date, net revenues, excluding currency, were up by 2.0%, driven by higher pricing of $275 million, partially offset by unfavorable volume/mix of $186 million.

Operating companies income decreased by 12.7% to $1.1 billion in the quarter, including unfavorable currency of $130 million. Excluding the unfavorable impact of currency, operating companies income decreased by 2.6%, as higher pricing was more than offset by: an unfavorable volume/mix of $159 million; higher manufacturing costs, mainly related to the mandated implementation of reduced cigarette ignition propensity standards which began in the fourth quarter of 2011; and higher marketing costs, principally reflecting marketing investment behind Marlboro in Germany and Switzerland. June year-to-date, operating companies income, excluding currency, was up by 0.7%.

Adjusted operating companies income decreased by 12.8% in the quarter, as shown in the table below and detailed on Schedule 11. Adjusted operating companies income, excluding currency, decreased by 2.7% in the quarter and was up by 0.2% June year-to-date.
