On June 16, 2021, Philip Morris International Inc. (the “Company”) disclosed that effective August 31, 2021, Martin G.

As such, in connection with Mr. King's retirement, on August 16, 2021, he and Philip Morris Services S.A., a subsidiary of the Company, entered into a Separation Agreement and Release (the “Separation Agreement”), with the following key terms, which key terms were set forth in his Employment Agreement with Philip Morris Services S.A., effective June 1, 2020, and previously disclosed by the Company:

Mr. King will receive a severance payment of CHF 1,267,506 (or $1,387,374)1, which was determined based on his years of service;

Mr. King’s 2021 incentive compensation award will be based on actual Company business rating and the assessment of his individual performance, pro-rated through August 31, 2021, and paid at the end of February 2022;

Mr. King’s restricted share units will vest fully, and his performance share units will vest as scheduled and certified by the Compensation and Leadership Development Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company; and

Mr. King will receive a cash payment of CHF 1,267,506 (or $1,387,374)1 subject to compliance with a 24-month non-compete obligation.

The Separation Agreement also includes a release of claims, confidentiality and other provisions customary for an agreement of this type.
