Philip Morris International Inc. Reports Strong 2021 First-Quarter Reported Diluted EPS of $1.55 Versus $1.17 in 2020, Reflecting Adjusted Diluted EPS Growth of 21.5% on an Organic Basis

Revises 2021 Full-Year Reported Diluted EPS Forecast to a Range of $5.93 to $6.03, Now Reflecting Adjusted Diluted EPS Growth of Around 11% to 13% on an Organic Basis; Anticipates 2021 Full-Year Heated Tobacco Unit Shipment Volume of 95 to 100 Billion Units

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 20, 2021-- Regulatory News:

Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE: PM) today announces its 2021 first-quarter results. Growth rates presented in this press release on an organic basis reflect currency-neutral underlying results. Adjustments, other calculations and reconciliations to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures are included in the schedules to this press release.

2021 FIRST-QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Reported diluted EPS of $1.55, up by 32.5%; up by 23.9%, excluding currency
  • Adjusted diluted EPS of $1.57, up by 29.8%; up by 21.5% on an organic basis
  • Cigarette and heated tobacco unit shipment volume down by 3.7% (reflecting cigarette shipment volume down by 7.3%, and heated tobacco unit shipment volume up by 29.9% to 21.7 billion units)
  • Market share for heated tobacco units in IQOS markets, excluding the U.S., up by 1.7 points to 7.6%
  • Net revenues up by 6.0%; up by 2.9% on an organic basis
  • Net revenues from smoke-free products accounted for 28.0% of total net revenues
  • Operating income up by 23.5%; up by 16.8%, excluding currency
  • Adjusted operating income up by 18.5% on an organic basis
  • Adjusted operating income margin of 46.0%, up by 5.9 points on an organic basis
  • Total IQOS users at quarter-end estimated at approximately 19.1 million, of which approximately 14.0 million have switched to IQOS and stopped smoking
  • During the quarter, PMI declared a regular quarterly dividend of $1.20 per common share, representing an annualized rate of $4.80

"We are pleased to have delivered a very strong start to the year, with top- and bottom-line results coming in well ahead of our expectations for the first quarter despite the ongoing challenges of the pandemic," said André Calantzopoulos, Chief Executive Officer.

"This performance was driven by the continued strength of IQOS, in particular, reflecting excellent user, volume and market share momentum, as well as further progress with manufacturing and operating cost efficiencies. Our results also benefited from the timing of specific factors, notably associated with shipments in certain markets and the phasing of commercial investments, which are expected to partially reverse in the second quarter."

"While the speed and shape of the global recovery from the pandemic remains uncertain, we are raising our full-year outlook, on an underlying basis, to reflect the strong results and positive momentum of the first quarter. Our guidance now represents organic adjusted diluted EPS growth of 11% to 13%, reflecting net revenue growth of 5% to 7% on the same basis."

PMI revises its full-year reported diluted EPS forecast to a range of $5.93 to $6.03, at prevailing exchange rates, representing a projected increase of around 15% to 17% versus reported diluted EPS of $5.16 in 2020. This compares to the previously communicated forecast range of $5.90 to $6.00, provided on February 10, 2021.

On an organic basis, this forecast represents a projected increase of around 11% to 13% versus adjusted diluted EPS of $5.17 in 2020, as outlined in the table above.

The revised full-year guidance reflects:

  • Better underlying business performance driven by the strength of IQOS, particularly in the EU Region and Japan;
  • A favorable currency impact, at prevailing exchange rates, of approximately $0.20 per share, compared to approximately $0.25 per share previously; and
  • Asset impairment and exit costs of $0.02 per share resulting from product distribution restructuring in Korea and organizational design optimization.

2021 Full-Year Forecast Assumptions

This forecast assumes:

  • A gradual improvement in the general operating environment, with potential volatility around the duration and effects of pandemic-related mobility restrictions across PMI's key markets;
  • Lack of near-term recovery in PMI's duty-free business given the uncertain outlook for global travel, with current dynamics persisting through year end;
  • A limited impact from the current global shortage of semiconductors on the supply of our electronic devices to consumers;
  • An estimated total international industry volume progression, excluding China and the U.S., of approximately -3% to flat;
  • A total cigarette and heated tobacco unit shipment volume progression for PMI of approximately -2% to +1%;
  • Heated tobacco unit shipment volume of 95 to 100 billion units, compared to a range of 90 to 100 billion units previously;
  • Net revenue growth of approximately 5% to 7% on an organic basis, compared to a range of approximately 4% to 7% previously;
  • An increase in adjusted operating income margin of around 200 basis points on an organic basis, compared to at least 150 basis points, previously;
  • Operating cash flow of around $11 billion at prevailing exchange rates and subject to year-end working capital requirements;
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $0.8 billion;
  • An effective tax rate, excluding discrete tax events, of around 22%;
  • No share repurchases;
  • Second-quarter reported diluted EPS in a range of $1.50 to $1.55, including a favorable currency impact, at prevailing exchange rates, of around $0.04 per share, notably reflecting:
    • Strong organic net revenue growth, partly driven by a favorable comparison versus the second quarter of 2020;
    • Continued improvement in adjusted operating income margin on an organic basis; and
    • A partial reversal of the approximately $0.08 per share benefit recorded in the first quarter related to the timing of specific factors, notably associated with shipments in certain markets and the phasing of commercial investments.
  • A second half of 2021 reflecting:
    • The assumption that many of PMI's key markets will have largely emerged from pandemic-related restrictions;
    • Continued robust organic net revenue growth;
    • Incremental commercial investments, compared to the first half of 2021, of approximately $300 to $400 million; and
    • Lower organic adjusted operating income margin expansion compared to the first half of 2021.

The foregoing is underpinned by the assumption that, even in the event of prolonged pandemic-related restrictions, there will not be a return to the depressed consumption levels of the second quarter of 2020. This assumption is consistent with the less severe impact on consumption levels observed in the second half of 2020 as COVID-19 spread in a number of markets.

This forecast excludes the impact of any future acquisitions, unanticipated or unquantifiable asset impairment and exit cost charges, future changes in currency exchange rates, further developments pertaining to the judgment in the two Québec Class Action lawsuits and the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA) protection granted to PMI's Canadian subsidiary, Rothmans, Benson & Hedges, Inc. (RBH), any unusual events, any intensification of the global shortage of semiconductors and the related impact on the supply of our electronic devices, and any COVID-19-related developments different from the assumptions set forth in the company's forecast.

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

COVID-19: Business Continuity Update

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, PMI has undertaken a number of business continuity measures to mitigate potential disruption to its operations and route-to-market in order to preserve the availability of products to its customers and adult consumers.

Currently:

  • PMI has sufficient access to the inputs for its products and is not facing any significant business continuity issues with respect to key suppliers;
  • All of PMI's cigarette and heated tobacco unit manufacturing facilities globally are operational;
  • COVID-related restrictions do not have a significant impact on the availability of PMI’s products to its customers and adult consumers; and
  • PMI has ample liquidity through cash on hand, the ongoing cash generation of its business, and its access to the commercial paper and debt markets.

During the quarter, PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 3.7%, due to:

  • the EU, reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, notably in the Czech Republic, Poland and Spain, partly offset by higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume across the Region, notably in Italy;
  • Eastern Europe, reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, notably in Ukraine, partly offset by higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume across the Region, primarily in Russia;
  • Middle East & Africa, mainly reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, mainly in North Africa (primarily Egypt) and PMI Duty Free, partly offset by Turkey;
  • South & Southeast Asia, primarily reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, primarily in Indonesia and the Philippines, partly offset by Pakistan; and
  • Latin America & Canada, reflecting lower cigarette shipment volume, notably in Colombia, partly offset by Brazil;

partly offset by

  • East Asia & Australia, reflecting higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume, primarily in Japan, partly offset by lower cigarette shipment volume, mainly in Japan.

First-Quarter Impact of Inventory Movements

Excluding the net unfavorable impact of estimated distributor inventory movements of approximately 0.9 billion units, PMI’s total in-market sales declined by 3.3%, due to a 6.2% decline in cigarettes, partly offset by a 22.7% increase in heated tobacco units.

The net unfavorable impact of approximately 0.9 billion units reflected:

  • A net unfavorable impact of 2.0 billion cigarettes, mainly due to inventory movements in the first quarter of 2020 related to higher shipments to distributors at the onset of the pandemic;

partly offset by

  • A net favorable impact of 1.1 billion heated tobacco units, mainly driven by inventory movements in the first quarter of 2020 due to the temporary shutdown of the company's Bologna manufacturing facility due to pandemic-related lockdown restrictions.

PMI's total heated tobacco unit in-market sales volume in the quarter was 21.3 billion units, broadly consistent with heated tobacco unit shipment volume. The company believes that the current level of heated tobacco unit inventory is appropriate based on anticipated sales.

  • Bond Street, notably due to Russia and Ukraine;
  • Lark, primarily due to Japan and PMI Duty Free; and
  • "Others," notably due to: mid-price Fortune in the Philippines and Sampoerna U in Indonesia; partly offset by low price Morven in Pakistan.

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

  • Parliament, mainly driven by Russia, Saudi Arabia and Turkey;
  • Sampoerna A in Indonesia, primarily driven by premium A Mild; and
  • Sampoerna Hijau in Indonesia.

The increase in PMI's heated tobacco unit shipment volume was mainly driven by the EU (notably Italy), Eastern Europe (notably Russia) and Japan.

First-Quarter 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, decreased by 0.7 points to 26.8%, reflecting:

  • Total international market share for cigarettes of 23.3%, down by 1.4 points; and
  • Total international market share for heated tobacco units of 3.5%, up by 0.7 points.

PMI's total international cigarette sales volume as a percentage of total industry cigarette sales volume was down by 1.2 points to 24.3%, mainly reflecting: out-switching to heated tobacco units, as well as lower cigarette market share and/or an unfavorable geographic mix impact, notably in Japan, the Philippines, PMI Duty Free and Ukraine, partly offset by Turkey.

During the quarter, net revenues increased by 2.9% on an organic basis, mainly reflecting: a favorable pricing variance (notably driven by Germany, Japan, the Philippines and Turkey, partly offset by Indonesia); and higher fees for certain distribution rights billed to customers in certain markets, shown in "Cost/Other"; partly offset by unfavorable volume/mix, primarily due to lower cigarette volume (mainly in Indonesia, Japan, North Africa, the Philippines, PMI Duty Free and Spain), partially offset by higher heated tobacco unit volume (notably in the EU, Japan and Russia, partly offset by PMI Duty Free).

Operating income increased by 16.8%, excluding currency, primarily reflecting: a favorable pricing variance; lower manufacturing costs (driven by productivity gains related to reduced-risk and combustible products); lower marketing, administration and research costs (largely driven by cost efficiencies, partially offset by the impact of 2021 asset impairment and exit costs of $48 million related to product distribution restructuring in Korea and organizational design optimization); and higher fees for certain distribution rights, as noted above for net revenues.

Adjusted operating income increased by 18.5%, on an organic basis. Adjusted operating income margin increased by 5.9 points on the same basis, as detailed in Schedule 6.

In the quarter, the estimated total market in the EU decreased by 3.3% to 105.8 billion units, notably driven by:

  • Czech Republic, down by 24.9%, mainly reflecting lower border sales due to pandemic-related lockdown measures;
  • Denmark, down by 58.9%, or by 15.1% excluding the net unfavorable impact of estimated trade inventory movements, primarily reflecting the impact of excise tax-driven price increases;
  • Romania, down by 12.8%, mainly reflecting the impact of pandemic-related lockdown measures; and
  • Spain, down by 7.7%, notably reflecting lower in-bound tourism due to the pandemic;

partly offset by

  • Germany, up by 8.5%, primarily reflecting the pandemic-related impact of lower cross-border (non-domestic) purchases and reduced out-bound tourism.

PMI's total shipment volume decreased by 4.7% to 43.2 billion units, or by 3.0% excluding the net unfavorable impact of estimated distributor inventory movements (notably in Spain), reflecting:

  • lower cigarette shipment volume, mainly due to the lower total market, as well as lower market share (notably in Germany, Italy and Poland, partly reflecting out-switching to heated tobacco units);

partly offset by

  • higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume across the Region, driven by higher market share (notably in Germany, Hungary, Italy and Poland).

During the quarter, net revenues increased by 10.5% on an organic basis, reflecting: favorable volume/mix, driven by higher heated tobacco unit volume (primarily in Russia and Ukraine); partly offset by unfavorable cigarette volume (mainly in Ukraine); and a favorable pricing variance, driven by higher combustible pricing (notably in Ukraine).

Operating income increased by over 100%, excluding currency (note: currency variance includes a favorable comparison due to an adverse transaction currency impact in the first quarter of 2020 related to the revaluation of foreign currency payables in Russia), primarily reflecting: favorable volume/mix, driven by the same factors as for net revenues noted above; lower manufacturing costs (primarily related to reduced-risk products, mainly in Russia); a favorable pricing variance; and lower marketing, administration and research costs.

Adjusted operating income increased by over 100% on an organic basis. Adjusted operating income margin increased by 16.8 points on the same basis, as detailed in Schedule 6.

Total Market, PMI Shipment & Market Share Commentaries

In the quarter, the estimated total market in Eastern Europe decreased, mainly due to:

  • Ukraine, down by 15.7%, or by 9.9% excluding the net unfavorable impact of estimated trade inventory movements, mainly reflecting the impact of excise tax-driven price increases and a higher prevalence of illicit trade;

partly offset by

  • Russia, up by 3.6%, primarily reflecting the net favorable impact of estimated trade inventory movements, partly related to the ban on discounts on cigarettes effective April 1, 2021. Excluding these movements, the total estimated market decreased by 2.4%, mainly due to the impact of excise tax-driven price increases, partly offset by a lower prevalence of illicit trade.

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, associated electronic devices and accessories, and other nicotine-containing products in markets outside the U.S. In addition, PMI ships versions of its IQOS Platform 1 device and consumables to Altria Group, Inc. for sale under license in the U.S., where these products have received marketing authorizations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the premarket tobacco product application (PMTA) pathway; the FDA has also authorized the marketing of a version of IQOS and its consumables as a Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP), finding that an exposure modification order for these products is appropriate to promote the public health. 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 product portfolio includes heat-not-burn and nicotine-containing vapor products. As of March 31, 2021, PMI's smoke-free products are available for sale in 66 markets in key cities or nationwide, and PMI estimates that approximately 14.0 million adults around the world have already switched to IQOS and stopped smoking.

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 and other nicotine-containing products and exposure to environmental tobacco smoke; litigation related to tobacco use and intellectual property; 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, availability, and quality of tobacco and other agricultural products and raw materials, as well as components and materials for our electronic devices; 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.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant societal and economic disruption, and resulted in closures of stores, factories and offices, and restrictions on manufacturing, distribution and travel, all of which will adversely impact our business, results of operations, cash flows and financial position during the continuation of the pandemic. Our business continuity plans and other safeguards may not be effective to mitigate the impact of the pandemic. Currently, significant risks include our diminished ability to convert adult smokers to our RRPs, significant volume declines in our duty-free business and certain other key markets, disruptions or delays in our manufacturing and supply chain, increased currency volatility, and delays in certain cost saving, transformation and restructuring initiatives. Our business could also be adversely impacted if key personnel or a significant number of employees or business partners become unavailable due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The significant adverse impact of COVID-19 on the economic or political conditions in markets in which we operate could result in changes to the preferences of our adult consumers and lower demand for our products, particularly for our mid-price or premium-price brands. Continuation of the pandemic could disrupt our access to the credit markets or increase our borrowing costs. Governments may temporarily be unable to focus on the development of science-based regulatory frameworks for the development and commercialization of RRPs or on the enforcement or implementation of regulations that are significant to our business. In addition, messaging about the potential negative impacts of the use of our products on COVID-19 risks may lead to increasingly restrictive regulatory measures on the sale and use of our products, negatively impact demand for our products, the willingness of adult consumers to switch to our RRPs and our efforts to advocate for the development of science-based regulatory frameworks for the development and commercialization of RRPs.

The impact of these risks also depends on factors beyond our knowledge or control, including the duration and severity of the pandemic, its recurrence in our key markets, actions taken to contain its spread and to mitigate its public health effects, and the ultimate economic consequences thereof.

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, 2020. 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.

  • "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) on March 22, 2019, PMI continues 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.
  • 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, heat-not-burn 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 devices produced by third-party electronics manufacturing service providers. Estimated costs associated with device 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); 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.
  • "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.
  • Growth rates presented on an organic basis reflect currency-neutral underlying results.
  • Management reviews net revenues, operating income, operating income margin, 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. Organic growth rates reflect the way management views underlying performance for these measures. PMI believes that such measures provide useful insight into underlying business trends and results.
  • 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 Creations, HEETS Dimensions, HEETS Marlboro and HEETS FROM MARLBORO (defined collectively as HEETS), Marlboro Dimensions, Marlboro HeatSticks and Parliament HeatSticks, as well as the KT&G-licensed brands, Fiit and Miix (outside of Korea).
  • Market share for HTUs is defined as the total sales volume for HTUs as a percentage of the total estimated sales volume for cigarettes and HTUs.
  • Unless otherwise stated, all references to IQOS are to PMI's Platform 1 IQOS devices and heated tobacco consumables.
  • 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.
  • "PMI heat-not-burn products" include licensed KT&G heat-not-burn products.
  • "PMI HTUs" include licensed KT&G HTUs.
  • “Total IQOS users” is defined as the estimated number of Legal Age (minimum 18 years) users of PMI heat-not-burn products for which PMI HTUs represented at least 5% of their daily tobacco consumption over the past seven days. Note: as of December 2020, PMI heat-not-burn products and HTUs include licensed KT&G heat-not-burn products and HTUs, respectively.
  • The estimated number of adults who have "switched to IQOS and stopped smoking" reflects:
    • for markets where there are no heat-not-burn products other than PMI heat-not-burn products: daily individual consumption of PMI HTUs represents the totality of their daily tobacco consumption in the past seven days;
    • for markets where PMI heat-not-burn products are 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% is PMI HTUs.

Note: as of December 2020, PMI heat-not-burn products and HTUs include licensed KT&G heat-not-burn products and HTUs, respectively.

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 PMI's Platform 1 product, namely, IQOS 2.4, 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 followed 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 IQOS 2.4 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 orders.
  • On July 7, 2020, the FDA authorized the marketing of a version of PMI's Platform 1 product, namely, IQOS 2.4, together with its heated tobacco units, as a Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP). In doing so, the agency found that an IQOS exposure modification order is appropriate to promote the public health. The decision followed a review of the extensive scientific evidence package PMI submitted to the FDA in December 2016 to support its MRTP applications.
  • On December 7, 2020, the FDA confirmed that the marketing of a version of PMI's Platform 1 product, namely, IQOS 3, is appropriate for the protection of public health and authorized it for sale in the U.S. The FDA’s decision followed an assessment of a PMI's PMTA filed with the agency in March 2020.
  • 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.
