PMI increases its 2015 full-year reported diluted earnings per share forecast to be in a range of $4.32 to $4.42, at prevailing exchange rates, versus $4.76 in 2014. Excluding an unfavorable currency impact, at prevailing exchange rates, of approximately $1.15 for the full-year 2015, the reported diluted earnings per share range represents a projected increase of 9% to 11% versus adjusted diluted earnings per share of $5.02 in 2014, as detailed in the attached Schedule 12, compared to 8% to 10% as communicated in PMI's previous forecast of February 2015
This forecast includes incremental spending versus 2014 for the deployment of PMI's Reduced-Risk Product, iQOS. The spending, which is skewed towards the second half of the year, will support plans for national expansion in Japan and Italy, as well as pilot or national launches in additional markets, later in 2015
This forecast does not include any share repurchases in 2015





This forecast excludes the impact of any future acquisitions, unanticipated asset impairment and exit cost charges, future changes in currency exchange rates and any unusual events. Factors described in the Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements section of this release represent continuing risks to these projections

NEW YORK, April 16, 2015 -- Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE / Euronext Paris: PM) today announced its 2015 first-quarter results.
“Our strong first-quarter results are an excellent start to the year," said André Calantzopoulos, Chief Executive Officer.
“Our organic volume and market share performance was better than we originally forecast, underpinned by the investments we made in 2014 and an improving operating environment this year.
Our robust business momentum is such that we are raising our guidance for the year and now forecast, at prevailing exchange rates, constant-currency adjusted diluted EPS growth of 9%-11%.
While currency volatility persists, we remain focused on managing our cash flow prudently and are steadfast in our aim to return around 100% of our free cash flow to our shareholders."

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 16, 2015. Access is at www.pmi.com/webcasts.
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 and Share Repurchase Program
During the quarter, PMI declared a regular quarterly dividend of $1.00, representing an annualized rate of $4.00 per common share. Since its spin-off in March 2008, PMI has increased its regular quarterly dividend by 117.4% from the initial annualized rate of $1.84 per common share. PMI did not make any share repurchases in the first quarter of 2015.

Productivity and Cost Savings Program
In 2015, PMI's productivity and cost savings initiatives will include, but are not limited to, the continued enhancement of production processes, the harmonization of tobacco blends, the streamlining of product specifications and number of brand variants, supply chain improvements and overall spending efficiency across the company. PMI anticipates that these initiatives, combined with savings associated with the manufacturing footprint restructuring implemented in 2014, notably in Australia and the Netherlands, should result in a total company cost base increase, excluding RRPs and currency, of approximately 1%.

2015 FIRST-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 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. North Africa is defined as Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia. The term “net revenues” refers to operating revenues from the sale of our products, excluding excise taxes and 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. 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 corresponding 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 combustible cigarettes. PMI’s RRPs are in various stages of development, 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 combustible cigarettes. Before making any such claims, we will need to evaluate rigorously 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 approval, 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.

Net revenues of $6.6 billion were down by 4.4%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $939 million, net revenues increased by 9.2%, or by 9.1% excluding currency and the impact of acquisitions, driven by favorable pricing of $552 million from across all Regions, led: in the EU, by Germany, largely driven by the annualization of pricing in 2014, and Poland, mainly reflecting price increases in the first quarter of 2015; in EEMA, by Egypt, mainly driven by the impact of the change to PMI's new business structure implemented in February 2014, and Russia, primarily reflecting the annualization of May 2014 pricing, the favorable impact of inventory movements, and pricing taken in the fourth quarter of 2014, ahead of the announced excise tax increase effective January 2015; in Asia, by Indonesia, reflecting the annualization of 2014 pricing, and Korea, principally driven by a gain from inventories built ahead of the announced excise tax increase effective January, 2015; and in Latin America & Canada, by Argentina and Canada, reflecting the annualization of 2014 pricing and pricing in the first quarter of 2015. The favorable pricing was accompanied by favorable volume/mix of $78 million, driven by the EU and EEMA Regions, partly offset by Japan and Korea, mainly due to the lower total markets.

Reported net revenues of $1.8 billion decreased by 8.3%.

The share growth of Parliament was driven by strong brand equity, especially its king-size variant, Night Blue, up by 0.8 points to 6.1%, and by up-trading from the mid-price segment. The share decline of Lark reflects the impact of price repositioning by PMI's principal competitor in May 2014. The share increase of "Others" was driven by L&M, up by 0.6 points to 7.2%, and Chesterfield, up by 1.4 points to 3.3%.

In Ukraine, the estimated total cigarette market increased by 3.2% to 14.8 billion units, mainly reflecting a favorable comparison with the first quarter of 2014 in which the estimated total cigarette market declined by 6.6%, and a lower prevalence of illicit trade, partly offset by continued business disruption due to the political instability in the east of the country.

ASIA REGION

2015 First-Quarter
Reported net revenues of $2.2 billion decreased by 1.2%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $128 million and the impact of acquisitions, net revenues increased by 4.6%, driven by favorable pricing of $151 million, mainly in Indonesia, reflecting the annualization of 2014 pricing, and Korea, mainly driven by a gain from inventories built ahead of the announced excise tax increase effective January, 2015, partly offset by Japan and the Philippines. The favorable pricing was partially offset by unfavorable volume/mix of $50 million, mainly due to a lower total market in Japan and Korea, partly offset by: a favorable total market comparison, and higher market share, in Australia; a higher total market and share in Indonesia; and a higher estimated total tax-paid market and improved mix in the Philippines.
  
Reported operating companies income of $934 million increased by 2.1%. Excluding unfavorable currency of $79 million and the impact of acquisitions, operating companies income increased by 10.7%, reflecting favorable pricing, and favorable asset and impairment and exit costs compared to the first quarter of 2014 related to the factory closure in Australia, partly offset by: unfavorable volume/mix of $44 million; higher distribution and marketing investments in Indonesia; increased marketing support behind Marlboro in Japan, primarily related to the roll-out of the new 2.0 Architecture; and investments related to the commercialization of the company's Reduced-Risk Product, iQOS, in Japan.
Adjusted operating companies income decreased by 0.4% as shown in the table below and detailed on Schedule 7. Adjusted operating companies income, excluding unfavorable currency and the impact of acquisitions, increased by 8.0%.

PMI's cigarette shipment volume of 70.1 billion units decreased by 1.0%, primarily due to Japan, mainly reflecting an unfavorable comparison with the first quarter of 2014, and Korea, resulting from the disruptive excise tax increase in January 2015, partially offset by industry and market share growth in Indonesia.
Shipment volume of Marlboro of 18.0 billion units decreased by 5.2%, predominantly due to Japan and Korea, partly offset by the Philippines. Shipment volume of Parliament of 1.9 billion units decreased by 23.5%, due to Korea. Shipment volume of Lark of 4.6 billion units decreased by 1.0%, due to Korea, partly offset by Japan.

In Japan, the total cigarette market decreased by 13.9% to 42.5 billion units, primarily reflecting an unfavorable comparison with the first quarter of 2014 in which the total market increased by 9.6%, mainly driven by retail trade and consumer purchasing ahead of the consumption tax-driven retail price increases of April, 2014. Excluding the impact of these estimated inventory movements, the total cigarette market declined by 3.5%, mainly reflecting the unfavorable impact of the aforementioned price increases. In 2015, the total market is forecast to decrease by an estimated 2.5% to 3.0%. PMI's shipment volume in the quarter of 11.8 billion units decreased by 12.2%, principally due to the lower total market. Market share performance is shown in the table below.

Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements
This press release contains projections of future results and other forward-looking statements. Achievement of projected 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 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.
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, 2014. PMI cautions that the foregoing list of important factors is not a complete discussion of all potential risks and uncertainties.
