Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI) Reports 2013 Third-Quarter Results; Revises 2013 Full-Year Reported Diluted EPS Forecast To A Range Of $5.35 To $5.40

Acquisitions and Agreements

The previously announced sale by Grupo Carso, S.A.B. de C. V. to PMI of its 20% interest in PMI's Mexican tobacco business was completed on September 30, 2013, with the approval of the Mexican antitrust authority, for $703 million. The transaction, which resulted in PMI owning 100% of its Mexican business, is projected to be marginally accretive to PMI's earnings per share as of the fourth quarter of 2013.

On September 30, 2013, PMI announced its entry into a definitive agreement to acquire 49% of the shares of United Arab Emirates-based Arab Investors-TA (FZC) (“AITA”) for $625 million. Through its acquisition of 49% of the shares of AITA, PMI will secure an almost 25% economic interest in the Société des Tabacs Algéro-Emiratie, a joint venture which is 51% owned by AITA and 49% by the Algerian state-owned Société Nationale des Tabacs et Allumettes SpA. This equity investment in AITA will provide PMI with enhanced earnings from Algeria and is projected to be accretive to PMI’s earnings per share as of 2014.

2013 Full-Year Forecast

PMI revises its 2013 full-year reported diluted earnings per share forecast to be in a range of $5.35 to $5.40, versus $5.17 in 2012. This forecast includes the unfavorable special tax item of $0.01 per share associated with the enactment of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 reported in the first quarter of 2013, an anticipated 2013 fourth-quarter charge, related to a previously announced organizational restructuring, of approximately $0.03 per share, and reflects a cautious outlook regarding certain markets.

Excluding an unfavorable currency impact, at prevailing exchange rates, of approximately $0.33 for the full-year 2013, and the aforementioned tax item and restructuring charge, reported diluted earnings per share are projected to increase by approximately 10% versus adjusted diluted earnings per share of $5.22 in 2012 as detailed in the attached Schedule 20.
