PMI announces a one-year gross productivity and cost savings target for 2013 of approximately $300 million.2013 Full-Year Forecast PMI forecasts 2013 full-year reported diluted earnings per share to be in a range of $5.68 to $5.78, at prevailing exchange rates, versus $5.17 in 2012. Excluding a forecasted total unfavorable currency impact of approximately $0.06 for the full-year 2013, the reported diluted earnings per share range represents a projected increase of 10% to 12% versus adjusted diluted earnings per share of $5.22 in 2012, as detailed in the attached Schedule 16. The factors described in the Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements section of this release represent continuing risks to these projections. This guidance excludes the impact of any potential future acquisitions, unanticipated asset impairment and exit cost charges, and any unusual events. 2012 FULL-YEAR AND FOURTH-QUARTER CONSOLIDATED RESULTS In this press release, “PMI” refers to Philip Morris International Inc. and its subsidiaries.
