Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions:
On November 13, 2012, Philip Morris International Inc. (the "Company") is hosting a live webcast of a presentation at the Morgan Stanley Global Consumer & Retail Conference where the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Louis C. Camilleri, will address investors. In connection with the presentation, the Company has issued a press release announcing the key highlights of the presentation. The press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.
Adjusted diluted EPS is not a U.S. GAAP measure. The Company defines adjusted diluted EPS as reported diluted EPS adjusted for asset impairment and exit costs, discrete tax items and unusual items. The Company believes it is appropriate to disclose this measure as it represents core earnings, improves comparability and helps investors analyze business performance and trends. Adjusted diluted EPS should be considered neither in isolation nor as a substitute for reported diluted EPS prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
The information on the Company's website referenced in the press release, including the presentation at the Morgan Stanley Global Consumer & Retail Conference, is not, and shall not be deemed to be, part of this Form 8-K or incorporated into any filing PMI makes with the Securities and Exchange Commission, except as may be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
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.
