"2019 marked a year of strong underlying business performance for PMI, driven by broad-based growth for IQOS and solid pricing for our combustible tobacco portfolio, with like-for-like adjusted diluted EPS up by 9.9%, excluding currency," said André Calantzopoulos, Chief Executive Officer.

"We continue to make significant progress in the transformation of our business, with smoke-free products now accounting for 8% of shipment volume and nearly one-fifth of net revenues, while further demonstrating our ability to maintain combustible tobacco leadership internationally, as evidenced by Marlboro’s full-year cigarette share of 10% -- an all-time high."

"Although we anticipate a few temporary headwinds, notably in Indonesia, we enter 2020 with favorable momentum, and expect to deliver like-for-like currency-neutral net revenue and adjusted diluted EPS growth this year consistent with our 2019 to 2021 compound annual growth targets of at least 5% and 8%, as well as further margin expansion."

(b) Pro forma.

Reported diluted earnings per share forecast to be at least $5.50, at prevailing exchange rates, representing a projected increase of at least 19% versus reported diluted earnings per share of $4.61 in 2019.

  • Excluding an unfavorable currency impact, at prevailing exchange rates, of approximately $0.04 per share, this forecast represents a projected increase of at least 8% versus pro forma adjusted diluted earnings per share of $5.13 in 2019, as detailed in the above table.

2020 Full-Year Forecast Assumptions

This forecast assumes:

  • An estimated total international industry volume decline, excluding China and the U.S., of approximately 3% to 4%, partly reflecting the impact of an above-inflation excise tax increase in Indonesia (following no increase in 2019) and further out-switching to the cigarillo category in Japan, which together account for approximately 100 basis points of the decline;
  • A total cigarette and heated tobacco unit shipment volume decline for PMI of approximately 2.5% to 3.5% on a like-for-like basis, partly reflecting the same factors as noted above for the total international industry volume decline;
  • A full-year heated tobacco unit shipment volume that keeps PMI well on-track to reach its 2021 target of 90 to 100 billion units;
  • Currency-neutral net revenue growth, on a like-for-like basis, of approximately 5%;
  • An increase in full-year currency-neutral, like-for-like adjusted operating income margin of at least 150 basis points versus 2019, partly reflecting cost efficiencies that fully offset incremental net RRP investment;
  • Operating cash flow of approximately $10.5 billion, subject to year-end working capital requirements and currency movements;
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $1.0 billion;
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 23.0%; and
  • No share repurchases.

This forecast excludes the impact of any future acquisitions, unanticipated asset impairment and exit cost charges, future changes in currency exchange rates, further developments related to the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, further developments pertaining to the judgment in the two Québec Class Action lawsuits and the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA) protection granted to RBH, and any unusual events.

Factors described in the Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements section of this release represent continuing risks to these projections.

Global Collaboration Agreement with KT&G

On January 29, 2020, PMI announced a global collaboration agreement with the leading tobacco and nicotine company in South Korea, KT&G, to commercialize KT&G’s smoke-free products outside of the country. This collaboration serves to accelerate the achievement of PMI's vision of a smoke-free future, by offering adult smokers a broader choice of smoke-free alternatives to cigarettes.

The agreement, which will run for an initial period of three years, allows PMI to distribute current KT&G smoke-free products, and their evolutions, on an exclusive basis, and does not restrict PMI from distributing its own or third-party products. KT&G’s smoke-free product portfolio includes heat-not-burn tobacco products (e.g., Lil Mini and Lil Plus), hybrid technologies that combine heat-not-burn tobacco and e-vapor technologies (e.g., Lil Hybrid), and e-vapor products (e.g., Lil Vapor).

Products sold under the agreement will be subject to careful assessment to ensure they meet the regulatory requirements in the markets where they are launched, as well as PMI’s high standards of quality and scientific substantiation of their harm reduction potential. PMI and KT&G will seek any necessary regulatory approvals that may be required on a market-by-market basis.

PMI will be responsible for the commercialization of smoke-free products supplied under the agreement. The agreement does not pertain to the South Korean market or combustible products. There are no current plans to commercialize KT&G products in the U.S.

Conference Call

A conference call, hosted by André Calantzopoulos, Chief Executive Officer, and Martin King, Chief Financial Officer, will be webcast at 9:00 a.m., Eastern Time, on February 6, 2020. Access is at www.pmi.com/2019Q4earnings. 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.

Full-Year

Estimated international industry cigarette and heated tobacco unit volume, excluding China and the U.S., of 2.7 trillion, decreased by 2.0%, due to the EU, EE, S&SA, EA&A and LA&C, as described in the Regional sections below.

PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 2.0%, or by 1.4% on a like-for-like basis, due to:

  • Middle East & Africa, primarily reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, notably in Turkey, partly offset by Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and lower heated tobacco unit shipment volume in PMI Duty Free;
  • South & Southeast Asia, reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, primarily in Indonesia, Pakistan and the Philippines, partly offset by Thailand;
  • East Asia & Australia, primarily reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume in Japan and lower cigarette and heated tobacco unit shipment volume in Korea, partly offset by higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume in Japan; and
  • Latin America & Canada, reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, principally in Argentina, Canada (primarily due to the impact of the deconsolidation of RBH) and Venezuela. On a like-for-like basis, PMI's total shipment volume in the Region decreased by 5.2%;

partly offset by

  • the EU, reflecting higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume across the Region, notably in Italy, partly offset by lower cigarette shipment volume, primarily in France, Germany and Italy; and
  • Eastern Europe, reflecting higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume across the Region, notably in Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine, partly offset by lower cigarette shipment volume, primarily in Russia and Ukraine.

Impact of Inventory Movements

On a like-for-like basis, excluding the net favorable impact of estimated distributor inventory movements of approximately 1.1 billion units, PMI’s total in-market sales declined by 1.5%, due to a 3.7% decline of cigarettes, partly offset by a 35.3% increase in heated tobacco units.

The net favorable impact of estimated distributor inventory movements of approximately 1.1 billion units reflected a 2.7 billion favorable impact from heated tobacco units (driven primarily by Japan, mainly reflecting a favorable comparison with 2018 in which IQOS consumable inventories were reduced, partly offset by PMI Duty Free), partially offset by a 1.6 billion unfavorable impact from cigarettes (due primarily to Japan, North Africa and Thailand, partly offset by the EU Region and Saudi Arabia).

Fourth-Quarter

PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 5.0%, or by 4.4% on a like-for-like basis, principally due to:

  • the EU, reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, primarily in France, Germany and Italy, partly offset by higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume across the Region, notably in Italy;
  • Middle East & Africa, reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, notably in Turkey, partly offset by Saudi Arabia;
  • South & Southeast Asia, reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, primarily in Indonesia, Pakistan and the Philippines, partly offset by Thailand;
  • East Asia & Australia, reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, notably in Japan, as well as lower heated tobacco unit shipment volume in Korea, partly offset by higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume in Japan; and
  • Latin America & Canada, reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, primarily in Argentina and Canada (mainly due to the impact of the deconsolidation of RBH). On a like-for-like basis, PMI's total shipment volume in the Region decreased by 5.2%;

partly offset by

  • Eastern Europe, reflecting higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume across the Region, notably in Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine, partly offset by lower cigarette shipment volume, mainly in Russia and Ukraine.

Impact of Inventory Movements

On a like-for-like basis, excluding the net unfavorable impact of estimated distributor inventory movements of approximately 2.5 billion units, PMI’s total in-market sales declined by 3.1%, due to a 6.0% decline of cigarettes, partly offset by a 44.7% increase in heated tobacco units.

The net unfavorable impact of estimated distributor inventory movements of approximately 2.5 billion units reflected a 2.3 billion impact from cigarettes, due mainly to the EU Region, Japan and North Africa.

Full-Year

PMI's cigarette shipment volume of the following brands decreased:

  • Marlboro, mainly due to Italy and Japan, partly reflecting the impact of out-switching to heated tobacco units, as well as France, partially offset by the Philippines, Saudi Arabia and Turkey;
  • Chesterfield, mainly due to Argentina, Italy, Russia and Venezuela, partly offset by Brazil;
  • Philip Morris, notably due to Argentina, partly offset by Indonesia and Russia;
  • Parliament, mainly due to Japan, Korea and Russia;
  • Sampoerna A in Indonesia, mainly reflecting the impact of retail price increases resulting in widened price gaps with competitors' products;
  • Bond Street, mainly due to Russia and Ukraine;
  • Lark, mainly due to Japan and Turkey;
  • Fortune in the Philippines, mainly reflecting up-trading to Marlboro resulting from narrowed price gaps with the below premium price segment; and
  • "Others," notably due to: the impact of the deconsolidation of RBH in Canada; mid-price Sampoerna U in Indonesia, partly reflecting the impact of above-inflation retail price increases; and low-price brands, notably Morven in Pakistan and Next/Dubliss in Russia, partly offset by Jackpot in the Philippines.

The increase in PMI's heated tobacco unit shipment volume was mainly driven by: the EU (notably Italy and Poland), Eastern Europe (notably Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine) and Japan, partly offset by Korea and PMI Duty Free.

PMI's cigarette shipment volume of the following brands increased:

  • L&M, mainly driven by Egypt and Thailand, partly offset by Russia and Turkey; and
  • Dji Sam Soe in Indonesia, driven by the strong performance of the DSS Magnum Mild 16 variant and the introduction of 20s and 50s variants.

International Share of Market

PMI's total international market share (excluding China and the U.S.), defined as PMI's cigarette and heated tobacco unit sales volume as a percentage of total industry cigarette and heated tobacco unit sales volume, increased by 0.1 point to 28.4%, reflecting:

  • Total international cigarette market share of 26.2%, down by 0.5 points.

PMI's total international cigarette market share, defined as PMI's cigarette sales volume as a percentage of total industry cigarette sales volume, was down by 0.3 points to 26.9%, mainly reflecting: out-switching to heated tobacco units, notably in the EU and Japan; and lower cigarette market share, notably in Argentina, Indonesia, Korea and Turkey.

In 2019, PMI owned six of the world's top 15 international cigarette brands, with international cigarette market shares as follows: Marlboro, 10.0%; L&M, 3.5%; Chesterfield, 2.2%; Philip Morris, 1.9%; Parliament, 1.5%; and Bond Street, 1.1%.

  • Philip Morris, mainly due to Argentina and Russia, partly offset by Indonesia;
  • Parliament, mainly due to Russia and Turkey;
  • Sampoerna A in Indonesia, mainly reflecting the same factor as in the full year;
  • Bond Street, mainly due to Russia;
  • Lark, mainly due to Japan and Turkey;

(3) Included in Marketing, Administration and Research Costs above.

Note: Net Revenues include revenues from shipments of Platform 1 devices, heated tobacco units and accessories to Altria Group, Inc., commencing in the third quarter of 2019, for sale under license in the United States.

Net revenues, excluding unfavorable currency, increased by 3.8%, mainly reflecting: a favorable pricing variance, notably in Germany, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines and Turkey; and favorable volume/mix, mainly driven by heated tobacco unit and IQOS device volume in the EU and Russia, and heated tobacco unit volume in Japan, partly offset by unfavorable volume/mix of cigarettes, notably in Australia, the EU, Indonesia, Japan and Russia, unfavorable heated tobacco unit volume in PMI Duty Free, and unfavorable IQOS device volume in Japan and Korea. The currency-neutral growth in net revenues of 3.8% came despite the unfavorable impact of $763 million, shown in "Cost/Other," predominantly resulting from the deconsolidation of RBH. On a like-for-like basis, net revenues, excluding unfavorable currency, increased by 6.4%, as detailed in Schedule 9.

Operating income, excluding unfavorable currency, decreased by 4.9%. Excluding the loss on deconsolidation of RBH, the Canadian tobacco litigation-related expense, asset impairment and exit charges related to plant closures in Argentina, Colombia, Germany and Pakistan as part of global manufacturing infrastructure optimization, as well as the Russia excise and VAT audit charge, adjusted operating income, excluding unfavorable currency, increased by 5.9%, primarily reflecting: a favorable pricing variance; favorable volume/mix, mainly driven by heated tobacco units in the EU, Japan and Russia, partly offset by unfavorable volume/mix of cigarettes, notably in Australia, the EU, Indonesia, Japan and Russia, as well as unfavorable heated tobacco unit volume in PMI Duty Free; and lower manufacturing costs; partly offset by higher marketing, administration and research costs, reflecting increased investment behind reduced-risk products (mainly in the EU and Eastern Europe), and the net unfavorable impact resulting from the deconsolidation of RBH shown in "Cost/Other." On a like-for-like basis, adjusted operating income, excluding unfavorable currency, increased by 11.2%, as detailed in Schedule 9.

Adjusted operating income margin, excluding currency, increased by 0.8 points to 39.2%, as detailed in Schedule 8, or by 1.7 points to 39.2% on a like-for-like basis, as detailed in Schedule 9.

Full-Year

The estimated total market in the EU decreased by 0.4% to 482.5 billion units, notably due to:

  • France, down by 7.4%, primarily reflecting the impact of significant excise tax-driven price increases and a higher prevalence of illicit trade;
  • Germany, down by 2.5%, primarily reflecting the impact of price increases in 2018 and March 2019; and
  • Italy, down by 1.5%, primarily reflecting the impact of price increases in 2018 and the first quarter of 2019;

partly offset by

  • Poland, up by 6.8%, primarily reflecting a lower prevalence of illicit trade; and
  • Spain, up by 0.8%, partly reflecting a lower prevalence of illicit trade.

PMI's total shipment volume increased by 0.7% to 186.9 billion units, reflecting:

  • higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume across the Region (notably Italy), driven by higher market share;

partly offset by

  • lower cigarette shipment volume, mainly in France, due to the lower total market and lower cigarette market share, as well as Germany and Italy, partly reflecting out-switching to heated tobacco units.

PMI's Regional market share increased by 0.3 points to 38.8%, with gains in the Czech Republic, Germany, Greece and Portugal, partly offset by declines in France, Poland and Spain.

Fourth-Quarter

The estimated total market in the EU decreased by 0.6% to 118.6 billion units, mainly driven by:

  • France, down by 10.3%, reflecting the same factors as in the full year; and
  • Germany, down by 4.5%, primarily reflecting the impact of estimated trade inventory movements of competitors' products and the impact of price increases in March 2019;

partly offset by

  • Poland, up by 7.3%, reflecting the same factor as in the full year.

PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 1.9% to 45.0 billion units, reflecting:

  • lower cigarette shipment volume, mainly in France, Germany and Italy, reflecting the same factors as in the full year;

Net revenues, excluding unfavorable currency, increased by 16.1%, reflecting a favorable pricing variance, mainly driven by Russia and Ukraine, and favorable volume/mix, predominantly driven by heated tobacco unit and IQOS device volume in Russia and Ukraine, and heated tobacco unit volume in Kazakhstan, partly offset by unfavorable cigarette volume/mix in Russia and lower cigarette volume in Ukraine.

Operating income, excluding favorable currency, decreased by 41.9%, primarily due to the unfavorable impact of the Russia excise and VAT audit charge, shown in "Cost/Other." Excluding this charge, adjusted operating income, excluding favorable currency, decreased by 0.4%, due to: higher marketing, administration and research costs, notably reflecting increased investments behind reduced-risk products (primarily in Russia in support of geographic expansion); and higher manufacturing costs; partly offset by a favorable pricing variance; and favorable volume/mix, predominantly driven by heated tobacco unit volume in Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine, partly offset by unfavorable cigarette volume/mix in Russia.

The estimated total market in the Middle East & Africa was essentially flat at 592.4 billion units, notably reflecting:

  • Algeria, up by 7.0%, partly reflecting the timing of estimated trade inventory movements in 2019 compared to 2018; and
  • Egypt, up by 1.6%, mainly due to the timing of estimated trade inventory movements in 2019 related to anticipated price increases;

offset by

  • Duty Free, down by 1.6%, mainly reflecting lower purchases by travelers to China; and
  • Morocco, down by 16.0%, primarily reflecting the impact of significant excise tax-driven price increases in 2019.

PMI's Regional market share decreased by 0.2 points to 23.5%.

PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 2.0% to 137.2 billion units, notably in:

  • PMI Duty Free, down by 7.0%. Excluding the net unfavorable impact of estimated distributor inventory movements of 0.4 billion units, PMI's in-market sales decline was 4.6%, mainly reflecting lower market share and the lower total market; and
  • Turkey, down by 5.6%, mainly reflecting lower market share, primarily driven by the timing of retail price increases in April 2019 compared to competition;

partly offset by

  • Egypt, up by 12.2%, primarily reflecting higher market share, driven by L&M, as well as the higher total market; and
  • Saudi Arabia, up by 24.9%. Excluding the net favorable impact of estimated distributor inventory movements of 1.5 billion units, mainly attributable to the timing of shipments compared to 2018, PMI's in-market sales grew by 4.1%, primarily reflecting higher market share.

Fourth-Quarter

The estimated total market in the Middle East & Africa decreased, notably driven by:

  • Morocco, down by 24.2%, reflecting the same factor as in the full year;
  • Saudi Arabia, down by 14.9%, notably reflecting sales disruptions of competitors' products related to the implementation of digital tax stamps and plain packaging; and
  • Turkey, down by 15.9%, mainly reflecting a higher prevalence of illicit trade related to cut tobacco, following two price increases in 2019;

partly offset by

  • Algeria, up by 9.8%, partly reflecting the same factor as in the full year.

PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 8.6% to 33.2 billion units, notably due to:

  • Turkey, down by 19.5%, mainly reflecting the lower total market and lower market share;

partly offset by

Full-Year

The estimated total market in East Asia & Australia, excluding China, decreased by 4.0% to 299.2 billion units, notably due to:

  • Australia, down by 5.9%, or by 8.9% excluding the impact of estimated trade inventory movements, mainly reflecting the impact of excise tax-driven retail price increases;
  • Japan, down by 5.6%, mainly reflecting the impact of the October 1, 2018 excise tax-driven retail price increases, as well as out-switching to the cigarillo category;
  • Korea, down by 1.4%, reflecting the secular decline of the cigarette category, partly offset by the growth of the heat-not-burn category; and
  • Taiwan, down by 1.9%, continuing to reflect the impact of significant excise tax-driven retail price increases in June 2017, as well as an increase in the prevalence of illicit trade.

PMI's Regional market share, excluding China, decreased by 0.5 points to 26.9%.

PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 2.9% to 80.6 billion units, notably in:

  • Korea, down by 11.1%, principally due to lower cigarette and heated tobacco unit market share, as well as the lower total market;

partly offset by

  • Japan, up by 0.3%, reflecting the net favorable impact of estimated distributor inventory movements of approximately 2.6 billion units (comprised of approximately 3.4 billion heated tobacco units, partially offset by approximately 0.8 billion cigarettes), mainly due to a favorable comparison with 2018 in which IQOS consumable inventories in Japan were reduced. Excluding the impact of these inventory movements, PMI's in-market sales declined by 4.2%, primarily reflecting the lower total market, partly offset by higher heated tobacco unit market share.

Fourth-Quarter

The estimated total market in East Asia & Australia, excluding China, increased, notably due to:

  • Japan, up by 2.4%. Excluding the impact of estimated trade inventory movements, the total market was down by 6.5%, mainly reflecting out-switching to the cigarillo category, as well as the impact of tax-driven retail price increases; and
  • Taiwan, up by 8.0%. Excluding the impact of estimated trade inventory movements, the total market was down by 8.7%, reflecting the same factors as in the full year;

partly offset by

  • Australia, down by 11.0%, or by 7.3% excluding the impact of estimated trade inventory movements, mainly reflecting the same factor as in the full year; and
  • Korea, down by 1.4%, or essentially flat excluding the net unfavorable impact of estimated trade inventory movements.

PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 5.8% to 18.7 billion units, notably in:

  • Japan, down by 3.0%, reflecting the net unfavorable impact of estimated distributor inventory movements of approximately 1.4 billion units (comprised of approximately 1.0 billion cigarettes and approximately 0.4 billion heated tobacco units), mainly due to lower cigarette demand related to adult smoker out-switching to heated tobacco and the cigarillo category. Excluding the impact of these inventory movements, PMI's in-market sales increased by 8.3%, driven by higher heated tobacco unit market share; and
  • Korea, down by 14.5%, mainly due to the same factors as in the full year.

Net revenues, excluding unfavorable currency, decreased by 25.6%, predominantly due to the unfavorable impact of the deconsolidation of RBH, shown in "Cost/Other." On a like-for-like basis, net revenues, excluding unfavorable currency, decreased by 1.9%, as detailed in Schedule 10, reflecting: unfavorable volume/mix, mainly due to lower cigarette volume in Argentina and Canada, partly offset by a favorable pricing variance, notably in Brazil, Canada, Colombia and Mexico, partially offset by Argentina, mainly due to the adoption of highly inflationary accounting.

Operating income, excluding favorable currency, decreased by 80.7%, predominantly due to the unfavorable impact of the deconsolidation of RBH and reporting adjustments, shown in "Cost/Other." Excluding asset impairment and exit costs related to plant closures in Argentina and Colombia, the Canadian tobacco litigation-related expense and the loss on deconsolidation of RBH, adjusted operating income, excluding favorable currency, decreased by 37.6%. On a like-for-like basis, excluding favorable currency, adjusted operating income increased by 18.0%, as detailed in Schedule 10. This increase reflected: a favorable pricing variance, lower manufacturing costs and lower marketing, administration and research costs, partially offset by an unfavorable volume/mix, mainly due to lower cigarette volume in Argentina and Canada.

Adjusted operating income margin, excluding currency, decreased by 6.1 points to 31.4%, as detailed in Schedule 8, or increased by 5.3 points to 31.4% on a like-for-like basis, as detailed in Schedule 10.

Full-Year

The estimated total market in Latin America & Canada decreased by 4.3% to 194.1 billion units, notably due to:

  • Argentina, down by 4.6%, primarily due to the impact of cumulative price increases and the impact of the economic downturn as of the second half of 2018;
  • Canada, down by 7.7%, primarily due to the impact of cumulative price increases, as well as the growing prevalence of e-vapor products; and
  • Venezuela, down by 61.6%, mainly reflecting the deterioration of the socioeconomic environment and the impact of inflation-driven price increases.

PMI's Regional market share decreased by 0.4 points to 36.9%.

PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 10.3% to 72.6 billion units, or by 5.2% on a like-for-like basis, notably due to:

  • Argentina, down by 9.4%, primarily reflecting the lower total market, as well as lower market share; and
  • Venezuela, down by 74.8%, primarily reflecting the lower total market.

Fourth-Quarter

  • Argentina, down by 4.8%, primarily due to the same factors as in the full year;
  • Canada, down by 4.5%, primarily due to the same factors as in the full year, partly offset by the favorable impact of estimated trade inventory movements for the competition ahead of the implementation of plain packaging on November 9, 2019; and
  • Venezuela, down by 75.9%, mainly reflecting the same factors as in the full year.

PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 11.3% to 19.5 billion units, or by 5.2% on a like-for-like basis, notably due to:

  • Argentina, down by 13.1%, primarily reflecting the same factors as in the full year. 

Philip Morris International: Delivering a Smoke-Free Future

Philip Morris International (PMI) is leading a transformation in the tobacco industry to create a smoke-free future and ultimately replace cigarettes with smoke-free products to the benefit of adults who would otherwise continue to smoke, society, the company and its shareholders. PMI is a leading international tobacco company engaged in the manufacture and sale of cigarettes, as well as smoke-free products and associated electronic devices and accessories, and other nicotine-containing products in markets outside the United States. In addition, PMI ships a version of its IQOS Platform 1 device and its consumables authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to Altria Group, Inc. for sale in the United States under license. PMI is building a future on a new category of smoke-free products that, while not risk-free, are a much better choice than continuing to smoke. Through multidisciplinary capabilities in product development, state-of-the-art facilities and scientific substantiation, PMI aims to ensure that its smoke-free products meet adult consumer preferences and rigorous regulatory requirements. PMI's smoke-free IQOS product portfolio includes heat-not-burn and nicotine-containing vapor products. As of December 31, 2019, PMI estimates that approximately 9.7 million adult smokers around the world have already stopped smoking and switched to PMI's heat-not-burn product, available for sale in 52 markets in key cities or nationwide under the IQOS brand.

Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements

This press release contains projections of future results and other forward-looking statements. Achievement of future 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: 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 and effectiveness of its data privacy policies. PMI's future profitability may also be adversely affected should it be unsuccessful in its attempts to produce and commercialize reduced-risk products or if regulation or taxation do not differentiate between such products and cigarettes; 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. Future results are also subject to the lower predictability of our reduced-risk product category's performance.

PMI is further subject to other risks detailed from time to time in its publicly filed documents, including the Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. 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.

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 shipment volume and PMI market share performance reflect cigarettes and heated tobacco units.
  • References to total international market, defined as worldwide cigarette and heated tobacco unit volume excluding the U.S., total industry, total market and market shares are PMI estimates for tax-paid products 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. In addition, to reflect the deconsolidation of PMI's Canadian subsidiary, Rothmans, Benson & Hedges, Inc. (RBH), effective March 22, 2019, PMI's total market share has been restated for previous periods.
  • "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.
  • "Combustible products" is the term PMI uses to refer to cigarettes and OTP, combined.
  • In-market sales, or "IMS," is defined as sales to the retail channel, depending on the market and distribution model.
  • "Total shipment volume" is defined as the combined total of cigarette shipment volume and heated tobacco unit shipment volume.
  • "North Africa" is defined as Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia.
  • "The GCC" (Gulf Cooperation Council) is defined as Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
  • Following the deconsolidation of PMI's Canadian subsidiary, Rothmans, Benson & Hedges, Inc. (RBH), PMI will continue to report the volume of brands sold by RBH for which other PMI subsidiaries are the trademark owner. These include HEETS, Next, Philip Morris and Rooftop, which accounted for approximately 40% of RBH's total shipment volume in 2018.
  • From time to time, PMI’s shipment volumes are subject to the impact of distributor inventory movements, and estimated total industry/market volumes are subject to the impact of inventory movements in various trade channels that include estimated trade inventory movements of PMI’s competitors arising from market-specific factors that significantly distort reported volume disclosures. Such factors may include changes to the manufacturing supply chain, shipment methods, consumer demand, timing of excise tax increases or other influences that may affect the timing of sales to customers. In such instances, in addition to reviewing PMI shipment volumes and certain estimated total industry/market volumes on a reported basis, management reviews these measures on an adjusted basis that excludes the impact of distributor and/or estimated trade inventory movements. Management also believes that disclosing PMI shipment volumes and estimated total industry/market volumes in such circumstances on a basis that excludes the impact of distributor and/or estimated trade inventory movements, such as on an IMS basis, improves the comparability of performance and trends for these measures over different reporting periods.

Financial

  • Net revenues related to combustible products refer to the operating revenues generated from the sale of these products, including shipping and handling charges billed to customers, net of sales and promotion incentives, and excise taxes. PMI recognizes revenue when control is transferred to the customer, typically either upon shipment or delivery of goods.
  • Net revenues related to RRPs represent the sale of heated tobacco units, IQOS devices and related accessories, and other nicotine-containing products, primarily e-vapor products, including shipping and handling charges billed to customers, net of sales and promotion incentives, and excise taxes. PMI recognizes revenue when control is transferred to the customer, typically either upon shipment or delivery of goods.
  • "Cost of sales" consists principally of: tobacco leaf, non-tobacco raw materials, labor and manufacturing costs; shipping and handling costs; and the cost of IQOS devices produced by third-party electronics manufacturing service providers. Estimated costs associated with IQOS warranty programs are generally provided for in cost of sales in the period the related revenues are recognized.
  • "Marketing, administration and research costs" include the costs of marketing and selling our products, other costs generally not related to the manufacture of our products (including general corporate expenses), and costs incurred to develop new products. The most significant components of our marketing, administration and research costs are marketing and sales expenses and general and administrative expenses.
  • "Cost/Other" in the Consolidated Financial Summary table of total PMI and the six operating segments of this release reflects the currency-neutral variances of: cost of sales (excluding the volume/mix cost component); marketing, administration and research costs (including asset impairment and exit costs, the Canadian tobacco litigation-related expense and the charge related to the deconsolidation of RBH in Canada, and the Russia excise & VAT audit charge); and amortization of intangibles. “Cost/Other” also includes the currency-neutral net revenue variance, unrelated to volume/mix and price components, attributable to fees for certain distribution rights billed to customers in certain markets in the ME&A Region, as well as the impact of the deconsolidation in RBH.
  • "Adjusted Operating Income Margin" is calculated as adjusted operating income, divided by net revenues.
  • "Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and equity (income)/loss in unconsolidated subsidiaries, excluding asset impairment and exit costs, and unusual items.
  • "Net debt" is defined as total debt, less cash and cash equivalents.
  • Management reviews net revenues, OI, OI 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, tax items and other special items. For example, PMI’s adjusted diluted EPS and other impacted results reflect the loss on deconsolidation of RBH and the Canadian tobacco litigation-related expense, recorded in the first quarter of 2019, and the Russia excise & VAT charge, recorded in the third quarter of 2019. PMI believes that the adjusted measures, including pro forma measures, will provide useful insight into underlying business trends and results, and will provide a more meaningful performance comparison for the period during which RBH remains under CCAA protection. For PMI's 2018 pro forma adjusted diluted EPS by quarter and year-to-date, see Schedule 3 in PMI's fourth-quarter 2019 earnings release.
  • 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 U.S. GAAP measures, see the relevant schedules provided with this press release.
  • U.S. GAAP Treatment of Argentina as a Highly Inflationary Economy. Following the categorization of Argentina by the International Practices Task Force of the Center for Audit Quality as a country with a three-year cumulative inflation rate greater than 100%, the country is considered highly inflationary in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Consequently, PMI began to account for the operations of its Argentinian affiliates as highly inflationary, and to treat the U.S. dollar as the functional currency of the affiliates, effective July 1, 2018.
  • "Fair value adjustment for equity security investments" reflects the adjustment resulting from share price movements in passive investments for publicly traded entities that are not controlled or influenced by PMI. Under U.S. GAAP, such adjustments are required, since January 1, 2018, to be reflected directly in the income statement.

Reduced-Risk Products

  • Reduced Risk Products (“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 continuing smoking. PMI has a range of RRPs in various stages of development, scientific assessment and commercialization. PMI's RRPs are smoke-free products that produce an aerosol that contains far lower quantities of harmful and potentially harmful constituents than found in cigarette smoke.
  • "Heated tobacco units," or "HTUs," is the term PMI uses to refer to heated tobacco consumables, which include the company's HEETS, HEETS Marlboro and HEETS FROM MARLBORO, defined collectively as HEETS, as well as Marlboro HeatSticks and Parliament HeatSticks.
  • Unless otherwise stated, all references to IQOS are to PMI's heat-not-burn products.
  • The IQOS heat-not-burn device is a precisely controlled heating device into which a specially designed and proprietary tobacco unit is inserted and heated to generate an aerosol.
  • “Total IQOS users” is defined as the estimated number of Legal Age (minimum 18 years) IQOS users that used PMI HTUs for at least 5% of their daily tobacco consumption over the past seven days.
  • The estimated number of people who have "stopped smoking and switched to IQOS" is defined as: for markets where IQOS is the only heat-not-burn product, daily individual consumption of PMI HTUs represents the totality of their daily tobacco consumption in the past seven days; for markets where IQOS is one among other heat-not-burn products, daily individual consumption of HTUs represents the totality of their daily tobacco consumption in the past seven days, of which at least 70% are PMI HTUs.

IQOS in the United States

  • On April 30, 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that the marketing of a version of IQOS, PMI's heat-not-burn product, together with its heated tobacco units (the term PMI uses to refer to heated tobacco consumables), is appropriate for the protection of public health and authorized it for sale in the U.S. The FDA’s decision follows its comprehensive assessment of PMI’s premarket tobacco product applications (PMTAs) submitted to the Agency in 2017. In the third quarter of 2019, PMI brought a version of its IQOS Platform 1 device and three variants of its heated tobacco units to the U.S. through its license with Altria Group, Inc., whose subsidiary, Philip Morris USA Inc., is responsible for marketing the product and complying with the provisions set forth in the FDA's marketing order.
  • Shipment volume of heated tobacco units to the U.S. is included in the heated tobacco unit shipment volume of the Latin America & Canada segment. Revenues from shipments of Platform 1 devices, heated tobacco units and accessories to Altria Group, Inc. for sale under license in the U.S. are included in Net Revenues of the Latin America & Canada segment.
