Grupo Financiero Santander Mexico Reports Fourth Quarter 2013 Net Income of Ps.6,134 Million

- Loan portfolio up 12.6% YoY with increases of 26.2% in SMEs, 7.4% in credit cards, 10.1% in consumer loans and 28.0% in mortgages including the acquisition of ING's mortgage business (now Santander Vivienda)

MEXICO CITY, Jan. 30, 2014 /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, 2013.

Comparable net income in 4Q13 decreased 27.0% YoY to Ps.3,114 million. Comparable 4Q13 results eliminate the following items: i) a Ps.1,927 million net gain after taxes resulting from the divestiture of the asset management business, ii) a Ps.1,074 million benefit from advanced tax credits, iii) an extraordinary net benefit of Ps.199 million before taxes related to the mandatory regulatory change in employee profit sharing (EPS) future payments occurred in 3Q13 and iv) branch expansion expenses before taxes of Ps.171 million.  Additionally, comparable 4Q12 results reflect Ps.1,368 million before taxes adjusted downward which include: an adjustment to be consistent with the accounting methodology adopted in 2013 to normalize expenses throughout the year, certain provisions, write-offs and administrative and promotional expenses. Reported net income for the quarter was Ps.6,134 million, representing YoY and QoQ increases of 85.3% and 4.3%, respectively.

Marcos Martinez, Executive President and CEO, commented, "We reported a strong performance in loan and deposit growth this quarter, ahead of industry growth rates. This good performance came about even as we continue to face an environment of lower growth."

"We expanded our total loan portfolio by 13% YoY this quarter, reflecting solid organic growth as well as the positive contribution from the November 2013 acquisition of ING's mortgage business, which solidifies our number two ranking in this attractive segment of the market. Among our core products, SME loans and mortgages grew YoY by 26% and 28%, respectively, well above the Mexican financial system growth rates during the period. Credit Cards and Consumer loans rose 7% and 10%, respectively, reflecting a conservative strategy to prioritize asset quality. Furthermore, we increased our deposit base by 12%, further supporting our liquidity profile."

"Net interest income for the quarter increased 6.5% YoY, with net interest margin of 5.25%, reflecting core business growth and lower cost of funding. At the same time, we remained on track with our branch expansion plan opening a total of 37 new branches during this quarter, for a total of 90 branches since the start of this process while maintaining tight cost controls across the organization. In summary, against a backdrop of a challenging economic environment, we closed 2013 in a very solid position as one of the most efficient and profitable franchises in the country."

"Also, several important events during the quarter improved our financial position. Among these, we divested our equity in the asset management business and entered into strategic agreements to continue to distribute these mutual funds to our clients. We also completed the optimization of our capital structure which has allowed us to reduce our cost of capital and increase return on equity, all while maintaining industry-leading capitalization levels, well above minimum regulatory capitalization requirements. As part of this strategy, we paid a Ps.16.9 billion, or U.S.$1.3 billion, cash dividend to our shareholders during the quarter. At the same time, in December 2013 we issued U.S.$1.3 billion in subordinated notes that comply with capital requirements under Basel III for Tier 2 capital, the first of their kind in Latin America."

Mr. Martinez concluded, "Looking ahead, macro and financial sector fundamentals in Mexico remain strong, despite the sharper than anticipated economic slowdown last year. We expect to see a recovery in public and private investment in 2014, driven by public spending as well as the infrastructure spending program. The recent approval of the energy, labour, financial and fiscal reforms should enhance economic growth in the following years, positively impacting Mexico's financial sector."
