Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE: PM) today announces its 2022 first-quarter results. Growth rates presented in this press release on an organic basis reflect currency-neutral adjusted results, excluding acquisitions.

A glossary of key terms, definitions and explanatory notes is included at the end of this press release. Adjustments, other calculations and reconciliations to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures are included in the schedules to this press release.
