Regulatory News:

Philip Morris International Inc. (“PMI”) (NYSE/Euronext Paris: PM) Chief
Executive Officer, André Calantzopoulos, addresses investors today at the
Morgan Stanley Global Consumer Conference in New York.

The presentation and Q&A session are being webcast live at
www.pmi.com/webcasts in a listen-only mode, beginning at approximately 12 Noon
Eastern Time. An archived copy of the webcast, together with slides, will be
available on the same site. Highlights from the presentation include:

  *PMI is revising its most recent 2013 reported diluted EPS guidance to a
    range of $5.37 to $5.42, compared to $5.17 in 2012. The $0.02 change
    reflects a reduction in the unfavorable currency variance from $0.33 to
    $0.31 per share at currently prevailing rates. On a currency-neutral basis
    and excluding the previously announced restructuring charge of
    approximately $0.03 per share and tax item of $0.01, the mid-point of this
    new guidance represents a growth rate of 10% compared to our adjusted
    diluted EPS of $5.22 in 2012;
  *PMI forecasts total international cigarette industry volume to decline by
    approximately 3.0% in 2013;
  *With a September year-to-date positive pricing variance of $1.5 billion,
    PMI is on track to surpass its four-year annual average pricing variance
    of $1.8 billion in 2013;
  *PMI is on track to achieve its $300 million pre-tax cost savings and
    productivity target for 2013;
  *PMI expects that international cigarette industry volume in 2014 could
    decline by 2%-3% overall, by 7%-8% in the EU Region and by 9%-11% in
    Russia;
  *PMI announces an acceleration of its plans to launch reduced-risk products
    with several commercial pilot city tests starting in the second half of
    2014 and the first national launch of its Platform 1 product in 2015, well
    ahead of the previously communicated 2016/2017 schedule;
  *In support of its accelerated schedule for reduced-risk product launches,
    PMI will increase its reduced-risk product-related expenditures in R&D,
    operations and the commercial organization by more than $100 million in
    2014;
  *PMI announces its intention to enter the e-cigarette category during the
    second half of 2014;
  *Since PMI’s spin-off in March 2008 through the end of September 2013, the
    company has increased its dividend by 104.3%;
  *PMI noted that the company has delivered cash to its shareholders at a
    pace that has exceeded its cash flow and reiterated its commitment to
    maintaining a single A credit rating; and
  *PMI stated that it views 2014 as an investment year, reflecting raised
    expenditures in markets where its share performance has trailed
    expectations and potential, and investment behind its reduced-risk
    products which it believes represent its greatest growth opportunity. PMI
    further noted that total industry volumes are unlikely to recover until
    2015 and that significant uncertainty remains in terms of pricing in Japan
    and the Philippines. Consequently, while noting that precise EPS guidance
    would be provided in February 2014, the company stated that it expects it
    should be able to grow its currency-neutral adjusted diluted EPS by some
    6% to 8% in 2014, a solid achievement given its investment plans. The
    company remains steadfast in its commitment to its mid to long-term
    currency-neutral target of 10% to 12% adjusted diluted EPS annual growth
    in 2015 and beyond.
