Highlights of the presentation include:

  • PMI revises, for currency only, its 2016 full-year reported diluted earnings per share forecast to be in a range of $4.46 to $4.51 versus $4.42 in 2015. Excluding an unfavorable currency impact, at prevailing exchange rates, of approximately $0.42 for the full-year 2016, the diluted earnings per share range represents a projected increase of approximately 10.5% to 11.5% versus adjusted diluted earnings per share of $4.42 in 2015.
    • This forecast does not include any share repurchases in 2016.
    • The adjusted diluted EPS of $4.42 in 2015 is calculated as reported diluted EPS of $4.42, plus a $0.03 per share charge related to asset impairment and exit costs, less a $0.03 per share benefit related to discrete tax items.
    • This forecast excludes the impact of any future acquisitions, unanticipated asset impairment and exit cost charges, future changes in currency exchange rates, and any unusual events.
  • In the fourth quarter of 2016, PMI continues to anticipate:
    • Strong currency-neutral net revenue growth, excluding excise taxes, supported by a favorable pricing variance of approximately 8% to 9% of fourth-quarter 2015 net revenues, excluding excise taxes; and
    • A favorable cost comparison, reflecting incremental investments made in the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • PMI’s weekly HeatSticks market share in Japan reached 4.9% in the last week of October 2016.
