Dividends and Share Repurchase Program During the second quarter, PMI spent $1.5 billion to repurchase 17.8 million shares, as shown in the table below.   Current $12 Billion, Three-Year Program           Value       Shares($ Mio.)000 May-December 2010 2,953 55,933 January-December 2011 5,400 80,514 January-March 2012 1,500 18,057 April-June 2012 1,53517,774Total Under Program11,388172,278   Since May 2008, when PMI began its first share repurchase program, the company has spent an aggregate of $24.4 billion to repurchase 449.9 million shares at an average price of $54.21 per share, or 21.3% of the shares outstanding at the time of the spin-off in March 2008. During the quarter, PMI announced a new three-year share repurchase program of $18 billion, anticipated to commence on August 1, 2012, following completion of the existing three-year program of $12 billion which began in May 2010, and which will conclude ahead of schedule. PMI has a share repurchase target for 2012 of $6.0 billion. 2012 Full-Year Forecast PMI reaffirms, at prevailing exchange rates, its 2012 full-year reported diluted earnings per share forecast to be in a range of $5.10 to $5.20, versus $4.85 in 2011. Forecasted total unfavorable currency of approximately $0.27 per share for the full-year 2012 is up by an additional $0.02 per share compared to the unfavorable currency forecast previously announced on June 21, 2012. This additional forecasted unfavorable currency of $0.02 per share is expected to be fully offset by an anticipated improvement in business performance driven largely by Asia and EEMA. On a currency neutral basis, reported diluted earnings per share in 2012 are projected to increase by approximately 10% to 12% versus adjusted diluted earnings per share of $4.88 in 2011. This guidance excludes the impact of any potential future acquisitions, unanticipated asset impairment and exit cost charges, and any unusual events. The factors described in the Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements section of this release represent continuing risks to these projections. 2012 SECOND-QUARTER CONSOLIDATED RESULTSIn this press release, “PMI” refers to Philip Morris International Inc. and its subsidiaries.The term “net revenues” refers to operating revenues from the sale of our products, excluding excise taxes and net of sales and promotion incentives.Operating Companies Income, or “OCI”, is defined as operating income before general corporate expenses and the amortization of intangibles.PMI's management evaluates business segment performance and allocates resources based on OCI.Management also reviews OCI, operating margins and Earnings Per Share, or “EPS”, on an adjusted basis (which may exclude the impact of currency and other items such as acquisitions, asset impairment and exit costs and discrete tax items), Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization, or “EBITDA”, free cash flow, defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, and net debt. References to total international cigarette market, defined as worldwide cigarette volume excluding the United States,total cigarette market, total market and market shares are PMI estimates based on the latest available data from a number of internal and external sources and may, in defined instances, exclude the People's Republic of China and/or PMI's duty-free business.Comparisons are to the same prior-year period unless otherwise stated.For a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to corresponding GAAP measures, see the relevant schedules provided with this release.   NET REVENUES   PMI Net Revenues ($ Millions)       Second-Quarter         Six Months Year-To-Date         Excl.             Excl.20122011ChangeCurr.20122011ChangeCurr.European Union $2,285 $2,497 (8.5)% (0.7)% $4,338 $4,498 (3.6)% 2.0% Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa 2,151 2,012 6.9% 13.2% 3,986 3,699 7.8% 13.2% Asia 2,855 2,936 (2.8)% (1.8)% 5,632 5,259 7.1% 6.2% Latin America & Canada829828 0.1% 6.3% 1,6121,608 0.2% 5.8% Total PMI$8,120$8,273(1.8)%3.0%$15,568$15,0643.3%6.6%   Net revenues of $8.1 billion were down by 1.8%, including unfavorable currency of $402 million.

PMI's June year-to-date cigarette shipment volume was up by 1.8%, excluding acquisitions. Excluding acquisitions and the Japan hurdle, PMI's June year-to-date cigarette shipment volume was up by a strong 3.3%.

PMI's June year-to-date cigarette shipment volume was down by 5.8%. In EEMA, PMI's total cigarette shipment volume grew by 5.1% in the quarter, driven mainly by a higher total market and share in Turkey and a higher share in Russia, partly offset by a lower total market in Egypt due primarily to a high incidence of illicit trade. PMI's June year-to-date cigarette shipment volume was up by 4.2%, excluding acquisitions. In Asia, PMI's total cigarette shipment volume decreased by 0.7% in the quarter, due to an unfavorable comparison related to the Japan hurdle and a lower total market and share in the Philippines, largely offset by a higher total market and share in Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.

In Latin America & Canada, PMI's total cigarette shipment volume decreased by 3.0% in the quarter, mainly due to a lower total market, and the unfavorable impact of trade inventory movements, in Mexico.

PMI's June year-to-date cigarette shipment volume was essentially flat. Total cigarette shipment volume of Marlboro of 76.9 billion units was down by 1.5% in the quarter. Excluding the aforementioned Japan hurdle, total cigarette shipment volume of Marlboro was up by 0.8%, reflecting growth across EEMA of 5.0%, notably in North Africa, Saudi Arabia and Serbia, partly offset by a 6.7% decline in the EU, notably in France, Italy and Spain, and a 2.3% decline in Latin America & Canada, primarily in Mexico, partly offset by growth in Brazil.

EUROPEAN UNION REGION (EU) In the EU, net revenues decreased by 8.5% to $2.3 billion in the quarter, including unfavorable currency of $195 million. Excluding currency, net revenues decreased by 0.7%, mainly reflecting unfavorable volume/mix of $186 million, predominantly due to lower total markets across the Region, particularly in southern Europe. The decrease was partly offset by favorable pricing of $169 million, driven by France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and Switzerland. June year-to-date, net revenues, excluding currency, were up by 2.0%, driven by higher pricing of $275 million, partially offset by unfavorable volume/mix of $186 million. Operating companies income decreased by 12.7% to $1.1 billion in the quarter, including unfavorable currency of $130 million. Excluding the unfavorable impact of currency, operating companies income decreased by 2.6%, as higher pricing was more than offset by: an unfavorable volume/mix of $159 million; higher manufacturing costs, mainly related to the mandated implementation of reduced cigarette ignition propensity standards which began in the fourth quarter of 2011; and higher marketing costs, principally reflecting marketing investment behind Marlboro in Germany and Switzerland.

The total cigarette market in the EU declined by 9.7% to 132.2 billion units in the quarter, due primarily to: tax-driven price increases; the unfavorable economic environment, particularly in southern Europe, and the impact of related austerity measures; the growth of the OTP segment, notably in Greece, Italy and Spain; the prevalence of illicit trade, mainly in Greece, Italy and Poland; and the timing of Easter trade inventory movements.

PMI's market share in the EU in the quarter was down 0.2 points to 38.5% as gains, notably in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Hungary and Poland were more than offset by declines, primarily in the Czech Republic, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.

This decline was partly offset by a higher share for Marlboro, up by 0.1 point to 7.6% and a higher share for Philip Morris, revamped during the first quarter of 2012, up by 0.7 points to 3.1%. In France, the total cigarette market was down by 5.9% to 13.6 billion units, mainly reflecting the impact of price increases in the fourth quarter of 2011.

PMI's shipments were down by 13.4%. While PMI's market share declined by 0.5 points to 52.9%, driven largely by low-price Diana, down by 0.8 points to 12.4%, share of Marlboro grew by 0.3 points to 23.0%, fueled by the March 2012 and June 2012 launches of Marlboro Silver and Marlboro Pocket Pack, respectively. The decline in total market share, particularly in the low-price segment due to the growth of international low-price brands, was partially offset by the first-quarter 2012 launch of Philip Morris Selection in the low-price segment, as a result of which the Philip Morris brand family grew by 0.3 points to 3.6% in the second quarter.
