At the Morgan Stanley Global Consumer Conference on November 20, 2013, Philip Morris International Inc. (the "Company") stated that based on prevailing exchanges rates, it expects continued currency headwinds in 2014.
Following the presentation, the Company is providing clarification on the potential impact of currency headwinds for 2014. At prevailing exchange rates, the Company estimates that currency could have an unfavorable impact in 2014 of approximately 40 cents per share.
Because changes in currency rates are not possible to accurately predict, the Company’s earnings forecasts are always based on then prevailing currency exchange rates.
The Company will provide its 2014 reported diluted earnings per share guidance on February 6, 2014, including the currency impact based on then prevailing exchange rates.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
PHILIP MORRIS INTERNATIONAL INC.
