MEXICO CITY, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Grupo Financiero Santander Mexico, S.A.B. de C.V., (NYSE: BSMX; BMV: SANMEX), ("Santander Mexico"), one of the leading financial groups in the Mexican financial system, today announced financial results for the three- and twelve-month periods ending December 31, 2012.

Comparable net income for 4Q12 was Ps.3,938 million, representing a 16.0% YoY increase. Including a non-recurring gain of Ps.4,348 million in 4Q11 from the sale of the insurance business to Zurich Financial Services Group ("Zurich"), as well as, incremental administrative and promotional expenses, an accounts receivable write-off and higher provisions in 4Q12, reported net income for the quarter was Ps.3,310 million, representing a decrease of 57.2% YoY and 21.5% on a sequential basis.

Comparable net income for FY12 increased by 31.4%, or Ps.4,124 million, to Ps.17,238 million. 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

Marcos Martinez, Executive Chairman and CEO, commented, "We reported a solid operating performance this quarter, balancing robust growth with strong asset quality and operational efficiency. 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."

Mr. Martinez continued, "We expect Santander Mexico's momentum to continue in 2013 and beyond, supported by our sharp strategic focus, our favorable view of Mexico's political and economic landscape, and our expectations for attractive yet sensible Mexican financial system growth."
