Altria Group Inc Comments On Q4 2013 Charge Guidance; Reaffirms FY 2013 EPS Guidance

Monday, 28 Oct 2013 08:30am EDT 

Altria Group Inc announced that it expects to record a one-time pre-tax charge of approximately $1.1 billion, or $0.35 per share, against reported earnings in the fourth quarter of 2013, reflecting the estimated loss on early extinguishment of debt related to the tender offer (the Estimated Charge). The Estimated Charge assumes current market pricing and that $2.0 billion in Notes are tendered. The final pre-tax charge will vary to the extent that the pricing and amount of Notes tendered differ from Altria's original assumptions. For fiscal 2013, it expects reported diluted earnings per share (EPS) from a range of $2.57 to $2.62 to a range of $2.22 to $2.27, reflecting the Estimated Charge and the other special items and adjusted diluted EPS, which excludes the special items, to be in the range of $2.36 to $2.41, representing a growth rate of 7% to 9% from an adjusted diluted EPS base of $2.21 per share in fiscal 2012. According to I/B/E/S Estimates, analysts on an average were expecting the Company to report EPS of $2.40 for fiscal 2013.
