0

Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE / Euronext Paris: PM) today announced its 2017 second-quarter results.

“Our quarterly results were robust with, as expected, sequential improvement in our volume performance, as well as strong currency-neutral net revenue growth of 7% versus last year,” said André Calantzopoulos, Chief Executive Officer.

IQOS, our flagship smoke-free alternative, continues to perform exceptionally well, supported by further recent successful market launches, notably in Korea. In the quarter, shipments of Marlboro HeatSticks represented over 40% of our total shipments in Japan, where we recorded a national share of 10%. To date, more than 2.9 million adult consumers have already stopped smoking and switched to IQOS.”

In the quarter, PMI’s total shipment volume of cigarettes and heated tobacco units decreased by 5.0%, principally due to: Asia, notably Indonesia, as well Pakistan and the Philippines, reflecting ongoing declines of primarily low-margin cigarette volumes; and EEMA. The net impact of inventory movements in the quarter was immaterial.

PMI’s cigarette volume decreased by 7.5% due to: the EU, principally Germany and Spain, partly offset by France; EEMA, mainly Russia, Saudi Arabia, mainly reflecting the implementation of a new excise tax, Turkey and Ukraine, partly offset by North Africa; and Asia, principally Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan and the Philippines. The decline was partly offset by growth in Latin America & Canada, principally Mexico.

The decline in PMI’s cigarette shipment volume was partly offset by higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume of 6.4 billion units, up from 1.2 billion units in the second quarter of 2016, driven by Japan.

Year-to-date, PMI’s total shipment volume of cigarettes and heated tobacco units decreased by 7.1%, or by 6.3% excluding net estimated inventory movements, principally due to: Asia, notably Indonesia, as well as Pakistan and the Philippines, reflecting ongoing declines of primarily low-margin cigarette volumes; and EEMA.

PMI’s cigarette volume decreased by 9.4% due to: the EU, principally Italy and Spain, partly offset by Poland; EEMA, reflecting declines across the Region, notably Russia and Ukraine; Asia, principally Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan and the Philippines; and Latin America & Canada, principally Argentina, Brazil and Canada.

The decline in PMI’s cigarette shipment volume was partly offset by higher heated tobacco unit shipment volume of 10.8 billion units, up from 1.6 billion units in the first six months of 2016, driven by Japan.
