Including an extraordinary gain of Ps.4,822 million from the sale of the insurance business and income from this business in FY11, a Ps.1,067 million extraordinary gain in 3Q11 from the reversal of provisions to comply with CNBV (Comision Nacional Bancaria y de Valores) regulations, and a Ps.1,731 million gain from the sale and leaseback of 220 branches in 2Q12, as well as, higher costs and provisions in 4Q12 as discussed above, reported net income for FY12 was Ps.17,822 million, a 4.6% decrease, from FY11

Net interest income expanded 13% year-on-year and net commissions and fees grew 34%. Continued growth in retail loans underscores the merits of our strategic focus. Performance in key business segments was strong in 2012, with year-on-year increases of 21% in consumer loans, 30% in credit cards, and 77% in loans to small and medium enterprises ("SMEs"). We achieved growth while maintaining a strong focus on prudent risk management - reflected in controlled NPL ratios and a stable cost of risk.  This, together with our efficiency-oriented culture, positions Santander Mexico as one of the most profitable franchises in the country."
