Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE / Euronext Paris: PM) today announced its 2017 first-quarter results.

“Our results were in line with our previously communicated expectation of a relatively weak first quarter, due to lower cigarette volume -- primarily related to low-price brands in specific markets where the impact on our profitability was limited -- and certain timing factors," said André Calantzopoulos, Chief Executive Officer.

"We are fully on track to deliver our full-year EPS guidance, driven by robust pricing and accelerating IQOS volume growth. We anticipate a combined cigarette and heated tobacco unit volume decline of 3% to 4% for the full year.

“It is extremely encouraging that already today, despite persistent capacity constraints, 1.8 million consumers have effectively stopped smoking and have switched to our heat-not-burn alternative, IQOS."

Conference Call

A conference call, hosted by Jacek Olczak, Chief Financial Officer, with members of the investor community and news media, will be webcast at 9:00 a.m., Eastern Time, on April 20, 2017. Access is at www.pmi.com/2017Q1earnings. The audio webcast may also be accessed on iOS or Android devices by downloading PMI’s free Investor Relations Mobile Application at www.pmi.com/irapp.

Dividends

During the quarter, PMI declared a regular quarterly dividend of $1.04, representing an annualized rate of $4.16 per common share.

2017 FIRST-QUARTER CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Key Terms, Definitions and Explanatory Notes

General

  • “PMI” refers to Philip Morris International Inc. and its subsidiaries. Trademarks and service marks that are the registered property of, or licensed by, the subsidiaries of PMI, are italicized.
  • Comparisons are made to the same prior-year period unless otherwise stated.
  • Unless otherwise stated, references to total industry, total market, PMI volume and PMI market share performance reflect cigarettes and PMI’s heated tobacco units for those markets that have commercial sales of IQOS.
  • References to total international market, defined as worldwide cigarette and PMI heated tobacco unit volume excluding the United States, total industry, 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.
  • "Combustible products" is the term PMI uses to refer to cigarettes and OTP, combined.
  • "OTP" is defined as other tobacco products, primarily roll-your-own and make-your-own cigarettes, pipe tobacco, cigars and cigarillos, and does not include reduced-risk products.
  • "Total shipment volume" is defined as the combined total of cigarette shipment volume and heated tobacco unit shipment volume.
  • "EEMA" is defined as Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa and includes PMI's international duty free business.
  • "North Africa" is defined as Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia.

Financial

  • Net revenues, excluding excise taxes, related to combustible products refer to the operating revenues generated from the sale of these products, net of sales and promotion incentives.
  • "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. 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, and unusual items.
  • "Net debt" is defined as total debt, less cash and cash equivalents.
  • Management reviews OCI, OCI margins, operating cash flow 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 other special items.
  • Management reviews these measures because they exclude changes in currency exchange rates and other factors that may distort underlying business trends, thereby improving the comparability of PMI’s business performance between reporting periods. Furthermore, PMI uses several of these measures in its management compensation program to promote internal fairness and a disciplined assessment of performance against company targets. PMI discloses these measures to enable investors to view the business through the eyes of management.
  • Non-GAAP measures used in this release should neither be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for the financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. 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

  • "Reduced-risk products," or "RRPs," is the term PMI uses to refer to products that present, are likely to present, or have the potential to present less risk of harm to smokers who switch to these products versus continued smoking. PMI has a range of RRPs in various stages of development, scientific assessment and commercialization. Because PMI's RRPs do not burn tobacco, they produce far lower quantities of harmful and potentially harmful compounds than found in cigarette smoke.
  • "Heated tobacco units" is the term PMI uses to refer to heat-not-burn consumables, which include HEETS, HEETS Marlboro and HEETS FROM MARLBORO, defined collectively as HEETS, as well as Marlboro HeatSticks and Parliament HeatSticks.
  • Net revenues, excluding excise taxes, related to RRPs represent the sale of heated tobacco units, IQOS devices and related accessories, and other nicotine-containing products, primarily e-vapor products, net of sales and promotion incentives.

PMI's total shipment volume of cigarettes and heated tobacco units decreased by 9.4%, or by 7.8% excluding net estimated inventory movements, reflecting a challenging comparison with the first quarter of 2016, which declined by a more modest 1.1%, as well as ongoing declines of primarily low-price volumes in specific markets, such as Pakistan and the Philippines. The first quarter of 2016 also benefited from the favorable estimated impact of the leap year.

PMI's cigarette volume decreased by 11.5% due to: the EU, principally Italy and Spain, partly offset by Poland; EEMA, mainly North Africa, primarily Egypt and Tunisia, as well as Russia and Ukraine; Asia, principally Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Pakistan and the Philippines; and Latin America & Canada, principally Argentina, Canada and Mexico.

The decline in PMI's cigarette shipment volume was partly offset by higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume of 4.4 billion units, up from 453 million units in the first quarter of 2016, driven by Japan.

Cigarette shipment volume of Marlboro decreased in: the EU, mainly due to Italy and Spain; EEMA, mainly due to Saudi Arabia and Tunisia, partly offset by Algeria; Asia, mainly due to Japan, principally reflecting out-switching to Marlboro HeatSticks; and Latin America & Canada, mainly due to Argentina and Mexico.

Cigarette shipment volume of L&M decreased, mainly due to Egypt, as well as Russia, Turkey and Ukraine, partly offset by Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia. Cigarette shipment volume of Chesterfield increased, mainly driven by Argentina and Turkey, partly offset by Italy and Russia. Cigarette shipment volume of Parliament decreased, mainly due to Russia. Cigarette shipment volume of Bond Street decreased, mainly due to Russia and Ukraine. Cigarette shipment volume of Philip Morris increased, driven by Russia and Ukraine, partly offset by Argentina and Italy. Cigarette shipment volume of Lark increased, principally driven by Japan and Korea, partly offset by Turkey. Cigarette shipment volume of "Others" decreased, mainly due to local, low-margin brands in Pakistan, the Philippines, Russia and Ukraine.

PMI's market share increased in a number of markets, including Algeria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates.

Net revenues, excluding excise taxes, of $6.1 billion declined by 0.3%, as detailed above and in the attached Schedule 6. Excluding unfavorable currency of $120 million, net revenues, excluding excise taxes, increased by 1.7%, driven by a favorable pricing variance of $408 million from across all Regions, principally EEMA and Asia. The favorable pricing variance was partly offset by unfavorable volume/mix of $307 million, due to the EU, EEMA and Latin America & Canada, partly offset by Asia.

Operating companies income of $2.5 billion decreased by 2.2%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $12 million, operating companies income decreased by 1.7%, mainly due to an unfavorable volume/mix of $375 million, principally in the EU and EEMA, as well as an unfavorable cost comparison, largely reflecting increased support behind reduced-risk products, notably in the EU and Asia. The decrease in operating companies income was partly offset by a favorable pricing variance across all Regions.

Adjusted operating companies income and margin are shown in the table below and detailed in Schedule 8. Adjusted operating companies income, excluding unfavorable currency, decreased by 1.7%. Adjusted operating companies income margin, excluding unfavorable currency, decreased by 1.4 points to 40.5%, reflecting the factors mentioned above, as detailed on Schedule 8.

Net revenues, excluding excise taxes, of $1.7 billion, decreased by 6.6%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $55 million, net revenues, excluding excise taxes, decreased by 3.7%, principally reflecting unfavorable volume/mix of $115 million, mainly due to the unfavorable impact of inventory movements and the lower total market in Italy and Spain, partly offset by a favorable pricing variance of $47 million, notably in Germany, Italy and Poland.

Operating companies income of $772 million decreased by 14.8%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $28 million, operating companies income decreased by 11.7%, mainly due to unfavorable volume/mix of $109 million, mainly in Italy and Spain, and increased investment behind reduced-risk products, partly offset by favorable pricing.

Adjusted operating companies income and margin are shown in the table below and detailed on Schedule 8. Adjusted operating companies income, excluding unfavorable currency, decreased by 11.7%.

The estimated total market in the EU decreased by 2.8% to 112.1 billion units, partly reflecting a challenging comparison to the first quarter of 2016, which increased by 0.8%, benefiting from a lower prevalence of illicit trade and e-vapor products and, in certain geographies, the estimated favorable impact of immigration. The decline of the estimated total market also reflected the impact of price increases and the implementation of elements of the Tobacco Products Directive, notably in Italy and the United Kingdom. The net impact of inventory movements on the estimated total market was immaterial.

As shown in the table above, PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 7.1% to 42.7 billion units, mainly due to cigarette volume declines in Italy and Spain, partly offset by Poland. Excluding estimated inventory movements, principally associated with distributor cigarette inventory movements in Italy and Spain, PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 2.9%. The decrease in cigarette shipment volume of Marlboro was mainly due to Italy and Spain. The decrease in cigarette shipment volume of L&M was mainly due to Romania and Spain. The decrease in cigarette shipment volume of Chesterfield was mainly due to Italy and Spain, partly offset by Poland and the United Kingdom. The decrease in cigarette shipment volume of Philip Morris was mainly due to Italy. The decrease in cigarette shipment volume of "Others" was mainly due to Merit and Muratti in Italy.

As shown in the table above, PMI's total market share decreased by 0.1 point to 38.5%, with declines, mainly in Italy and Spain, partly offset by gains, notably in France, Germany and Poland.

The estimated total market decreased by 2.2%, partly reflecting the lapsed contribution of favorable factors in 2016, including a lower prevalence of illicit trade. The decrease in PMI's shipment volume was mainly due to the lower total market. The increase in PMI's market share was driven by Marlboro, largely reflecting the positive impact of marketing support.

In Italy, estimated industry size, PMI shipment volume and market share performance, shown in the table below, include cigarettes and PMI's heated tobacco units.

The estimated total market decreased by 5.2%, or by 6.5% excluding the net impact of trade inventory movements, mainly due to the implementation of elements of the Tobacco Products Directive, notably the ban on pack sizes of ten cigarettes, which fueled growth in cheaper alternatives such as fine cut, cigarillos, e-vapor and illicit products. The decline of the total market also reflected a challenging comparison with the first quarter of 2016, which grew by 3.9%. The decline of PMI's shipments, down by 7.9% excluding the net impact of distributor inventory movements, mainly reflected the lower total market, as well as lower cigarette market share, notably due to: Marlboro, as a result of its price increase in the second quarter of 2016, the ban on pack sizes of ten cigarettes, and out-switching to HEETS; and low-price Philip Morris, impacted by the growth of the super-low price segment.

The estimated total market decreased by 4.7%, or by 0.3% excluding the impact of estimated trade inventory reductions following increases ahead of retail price increases in December 2016. The decline of PMI's shipments, down by 8.8% excluding the net impact of distributor inventory movements, mainly associated with the replenishment in the first quarter of 2016 of low inventory levels at the end of 2015, was mainly due to the lower total market and lower market share, principally due to Marlboro, reflecting the impact of price increases, particularly past the round €5.00 per pack price point in the vending channel, as well as a challenging comparison with the first quarter of 2016 in which the market share of Marlboro grew by 1.6 points.

EASTERN EUROPE, MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA REGION (EEMA)

Net revenues, excluding excise taxes, of $1.5 billion decreased by 7.8%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $99 million, net revenues, excluding excise taxes, decreased by 1.6%, principally reflecting unfavorable volume/mix of $179 million, mainly due to: North Africa, notably Egypt and Tunisia; Russia, mainly due to the unfavorable impact of estimated inventory movements and a lower total market; and Saudi Arabia; partly offset by a favorable pricing variance of $153 million, driven principally by North Africa, notably Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Ukraine.

Operating companies income of $690 million increased by 9.0%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $12 million, operating companies income increased by 10.9%, principally reflecting a favorable pricing variance and a favorable cost comparison with 2016, partly offset by unfavorable volume/mix of $135 million, mainly due to North Africa, notably Tunisia, Russia and Saudi Arabia.

As shown in the table above, PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 10.2% to 56.7 billion units, mainly due to cigarette volume declines in North Africa, primarily Egypt associated with continuity of supply, Tunisia associated with the timing of shipments, Russia and Ukraine.

The decrease in cigarette shipment volume of Marlboro was mainly due to Saudi Arabia and Tunisia, partly offset by Algeria. The decrease in cigarette shipment volume of L&M was mainly due to Egypt, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine, partly offset by Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia. The decrease in cigarette shipment volume of Bond Street was mainly due to Russia and Ukraine. The decrease in cigarette shipment volume of Parliament was mainly due to Russia. The decrease in cigarette shipment volume of "Others" was mainly due to largely local, lower-margin brands in Russia and Ukraine.

The estimated total cigarette market decreased by 3.5%, mainly due to Egypt, reflecting the impact of price increases since the third quarter of 2016. The decrease in PMI's cigarette shipment volume, down by 7.9% excluding estimated distributor inventory movements, was mainly due to the lower total cigarette market, as well as lower cigarette market share, notably of L&M in Egypt as a result of widening price gaps with competitors' brands, partly offset by the recovery of Marlboro in Algeria following the lower-than-anticipated acceptance of Architecture 2.0 in 2016.

In Russia, estimated industry size and PMI shipment volume, shown in the table below, include cigarettes and PMI's heated tobacco units. February quarter-to-date market share performance, as measured by Nielsen and shown in the table below, reflects that of cigarettes.

The estimated total cigarette market increased by 0.8%. Excluding the impact of estimated trade inventory movements associated with the comparative timing of purchases ahead of anticipated price increases, the estimated total cigarette market declined by 5.4%, mainly reflecting the impact of price increases and a higher prevalence of illicit trade. The decrease in PMI's shipments was mainly due to lower cigarette market share, reflecting the impact of price increases and, in the case of low-price Lark, competitive pressure from super-low price alternatives.

The decrease in PMI's shipment volume was mainly due to the lower total market, as well as lower cigarette market share, primarily of low-price Bond Street, as well as President, down by 3.0 points to 1.4%, and Chesterfield, down by 0.7 points to 2.1%, in "Others," largely reflecting the impact of price increases. The decline in PMI's cigarette market share was partly offset by Parliament, as well as L&M, up by 1.9 points to 6.5%, in "Others."

ASIA REGION

Net revenues, excluding excise taxes, of $2.2 billion increased by 13.9%. Excluding favorable currency of $56 million, net revenues, excluding excise taxes, increased by 11.0%, reflecting a favorable pricing variance of $143 million, driven principally by Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines. The favorable pricing variance was supported by favorable volume/mix of $74 million, predominantly driven by favorable heated tobacco unit volume in Japan, partly offset by unfavorable volume/mix in Indonesia and unfavorable volume in Australia, Pakistan and the Philippines.

Operating companies income of $852 million increased by 9.5%. Excluding favorable currency of $54 million, operating companies income increased by 2.6%, mainly driven by a favorable pricing variance, partly offset by: unfavorable volume/mix of $56 million, mainly due to unfavorable volume/mix in Indonesia and unfavorable volume in Australia and Pakistan, partly offset by favorable volume in Japan, driven by heated tobacco units; and an unfavorable cost comparison, notably related to increased investment behind reduced-risk products, notably in Japan.

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: excise tax increases and discriminatory tax structures; increasing marketing and regulatory restrictions that could reduce our competitiveness, eliminate our ability to communicate with adult consumers, or ban certain of our 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, natural disasters and conflicts; 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, and limitations on the ability to repatriate funds; 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 reduced-risk products; 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-K for the year ended December 31, 2016. 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.

(1) Net revenue amounts for our Combustible Products refer to the operating revenues generated from the sale of these products, net of sales and promotion incentives. These net revenue amounts consist of the sale of our cigarettes and other tobacco products combined. Other tobacco products primarily include tobacco for roll-your-own and make-your-own cigarettes, pipe tobacco, cigars and cigarillos and do not include Reduced-Risk products.
 
(2) Net revenue amounts for our Reduced-Risk Products refer to the operating revenues generated from the sale of these products, net of sales and promotion incentives. These net revenue amounts consist of the sale of our heated tobacco units, our IQOS devices and related accessories, and other nicotine-containing products, which primarily include our e-vapor products. Reduced-Risk Products is the term we use to refer to products that present, are likely to present, or have the potential to present less risk of harm to smokers who switch to these products versus continued smoking. We have a range of Reduced-Risk Products in various stages of development, scientific assessment and commercialization. Because our Reduced-Risk Products do not burn tobacco, they produce far lower quantities of harmful and potentially harmful compounds than found in cigarette smoke.
 
(3) PMI often collects excise taxes from its customers and then remits them to governments, and, in those circumstances, PMI includes the excise taxes in its net revenues and in excise taxes on products. In some jurisdictions, including Japan, PMI is not responsible for collecting excise taxes.


Note: Sum of product categories or Regions might not foot to PMI total due to rounding.
