Philip Morris International, Inc. Research Report

On July 18, 2013, Philip Morris International, Inc. (PMI) released its Q2 2013
financial results. Net revenues, excluding excise taxes, were down 2.5% YoY to
$7.9 billion, while diluted EPS was down 4.4% YoY to $1.30 per share. André
Calantzopoulos, CEO of PMI, stated, "As expected, despite strong pricing and a
robust share performance, our second-quarter results were primarily impacted
by lower industry volume in several key markets, as well as the timing of
inventory movements in Japan, higher costs, predominantly in Asia, and stiffer
currency headwinds." Calantzopoulos continued, "For the second half of the
year, we expect volume/mix to improve, pricing to remain strong and our total
cost variance, excluding currency, to be flat. While industry volume remains a
challenge, our underlying business performance is such that we continue to
expect to meet our mid to long-term currency neutral adjusted diluted EPS
growth rate target of 10-12% in 2013." The Full Research Report on Philip
Morris International, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst
