MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

"I am pleased to inform our investors, partners and associates that the results obtained during the last quarter and during 2013 are very strong and consistent with the trend we observed during the whole year, with net income reaching more than Ps. 1,000.0 million. Our portfolio increased 54.8% in the year to reach $ 10,423.5 million pesos, while maintaining our nonperforming loans at a rate of  2% rate or less.

"Credito Real recorded double-digit growth in all five products while our loan portfolio continues to have a stronger presence of all five products. During 2013, payroll, group loans and durable goods loans increased 41.1% compared to 2012. Small business loans and used car loans, that were launched during 2012, reached Ps. 926.2 million pesos or 8.9% of our total loan portfolio and 15.1%  of our origination. The acquisition of Fondo H's portfolio through the agreement formalized between the partners in last October 2013 helped to achieve this growth and strengthen our presence in Small Business Loans.

"The results obtained in terms of profitability are also remarkable. Particularly, interest income shows growth of 40.0% and 30.3% during the quarter and the year respectively.  Net income increased 65.8% and 63.4% for each period.  Return on Assets reached 7.7%. from 6.5%. Our efficiency ratio, is consistent with our business model and improved from 35.2% to 25.1%. 

"Our guidance for 2014 considers net income growth between 16% and 18% to be achieved by increasing market penetration in a market that has a very strong growth potential. The guidance also considers the specific competitive pressures that have lead us to consider a gradual decrease in our lending rates.  The effect of the interest rate is mainly offset by loan book growth, particularly small business and used-car loans. In addition we have identified that a non-substantial portion of the payroll loan portfolio may be prepaid according to the refinancing program of Bansefi. Finally, the effect of the fiscal reform has also been taken into account, and would be reflected in our administrative expenses and income taxes. As it has been announced before, we will keep growing in our five lines of business and always seeking new opportunities to provide our products to the underserved Mexican population."

Interest Income. During the 4Q13 we reached Ps. 783.5 million in interest income, an increase of 40.0% from the Ps. 559.5 million registered in the 4Q12. The change was mainly due to the growth observed in the loan portfolio. During the year 2013 Credito Real registered interest income of Ps. 2,724.5 million, 30.3% more than the Ps. 2,090.4 million figure posted in the same period of the previous year.

Interest expenses increased 12.1% or Ps. 21.3 million in the 4Q13 to reach Ps. 196.9  million, in comparison with the Ps. 175.6 million posted in 4Q12. This increase was mostly the result of the change in the Company's indebtedness in 4Q13 compared with that of 4Q12, following the growth in the portfolio. In the year 2013 we recorded an accumulated interest expense of Ps. 723.1 million, which resulted in an increase of 10.4% when compared to the Ps. 654.8 million in 2012.

Financial margin increased Ps. 202.6 million or 52.8%, reaching Ps. 586.5 million in 4Q13 compared to Ps. 383.9 million recorded in the previous year. The change was mostly due to a higher growth in the interest income account and a lower proportional growth in financial expenses. As of December 2013, accumulated financial margin increased to Ps. 2,001.4 million in comparison with the Ps. 1,435.6 million registered in the previous year, which is equivalent to a growth of 39.4% year over year.

Allowance for loan losses reached Ps. 106.0 million in the 4Q13, a higher allowance than the Ps. 89.2 million recorded in the 4Q12. The annual allowance for 2013 reached Ps. 404.5 million in comparison with Ps. 272.8 million observed in 2012.

Administrative expenses were Ps. 120.9 million in 4Q13, a decrease of 6.3% If compared with  the Ps. 129.0 million recorded in the 4Q12. In terms of the annual administrative expenses they reached Ps. 484.1 million in 2013, an increase of  Ps. 3.6 million or 0.7%, in comparison with the Ps 480.5 million posted in 2012. The account showed a slight decrease during the fourth quarter as the result of the agreement celebrated with a group-loan distributor by virtue of which part of the expenses previously recorded in the financial statements of Credito Real are now recorded in the financial statements of the said partner.

Participation in results of associates contributed with Ps. 37.8 million during the quarter; compared to the Ps. 65.2 million which we recorded in the same quarter of the previous year. The decrease is mainly explained by the fact that, in the fourth quarter of 2012, most of the net income for the year was generated by Credito Maestro. As a result, participation in the results of associates increased 53.4% on an accumulated basis. On an annualized basis, we recorded Ps. 191.9  million and Ps. 125.1  million for the years 2013 and 2012 respectively.

Net income grew 65.8% during the 4Q13, thus reaching Ps. 293.6 million, which compares with the Ps. 177.0 million posted in 4Q12. Net income for 2013 increased 63.4%, reaching Ps. 1,003.6 million in comparison with Ps. 614.1 million registered in the previous year. The change was due mostly to the growth of our portfolio and its high-quality assets, an adequate control of administrative expenses and the increase in our associates' participation.

BALANCE SHEET

Total assets accounted for Ps. 15,100.0 million at the end of 4Q13, an increase of 37.7% over the Ps. 10,965.3 million registered at the end of the same previous year period. The increase was prompted by the growth observed in the loan portfolio in all our products.

Total loan portfolio was Ps. 10,423.5 million at the end of 4Q13, an increase of 54.8% from the previous year, which totaled  Ps. 6,732.5 million. This change was due to the origination efforts that our distributor carried out in the payroll, group loan, durable goods and used car loan markets, as well as the acquisition of a small business loans portfolio from Fondo H amounting to Ps. 657.5 million.

Nonperforming loan portfolio (as a percentage of the portfolio) was 1.5% in 4Q13, equivalent to Ps. 158.5 million, in comparison with a 1.6% ratio or Ps. 106.9 million in the same previous year period. The company consistently executes its collection standards and processes, which allows Credito Real to keep a nonperforming loan portfolio base around the 2.0% level.

Allowance for loan losses in 4Q13 were Ps. 203.2  million, equal to a coverage of 128.2% over the nonperforming loans, in comparison to Ps. 141.3  million, or coverage of 132.2% reported in 4Q12.

Other Receivables decreased, reaching Ps. 2,390.4 million in 4Q13, which compares with Ps. 2,504.3 million posted in  4Q12. The account recorded a portion of income paid in advance to the distributors according to the agreements.

Stockholders' Equity was  Ps. 4,352.9 million at the end of 4Q13, an increase of 21.0% if compared with Ps. 3,596.4 million reported in 4Q12. This adjustment is the result of retained earnings for 2012.

FINANCIAL RATIOS

Efficiency improved to 21.3% in 4Q13 in comparison with the 35.1% ratio observed in the same quarter of 2012, thus reflecting a significant adjustment in the financial margin and a decrease in administrative expenses.

During 4Q13, Credito Real experienced a Return on Average Assets ("ROAA") of 8.3%, which compares with the 6.7% rate obtained in the same period of the previous year.

Return on Average Equity was 27.3% for 4Q13, which compares with the 25.7% rate observed in 4Q12. The increase is consequence of Company's net income growth, which exceeded 60%.

Credito Real Payroll Loans Portfolio rose to  Ps. 8,165.6  million, an increase of 42.6% in comparison with Ps. 5,724.3  million recorded in 4Q12. Nearly 81.4% of payroll loans originated in 4Q13 came from third-party distributors, thus reflecting a positive variation caused by the agreements reached with such distributors and the outstanding performance obtained from other distributors. We recorded a slowdown in the growth rate of origination processes in 4Q13 if compared with that observed in 4Q12. This is mainly the result of the acquisition of a significant portion of the loan portfolio of Credito Maestro, an event that took place at the end of 2012. Year over year origination increased 8.5%.

In general, the Company bears a healthy payroll loan portfolio as a consequence of the growth observed and the performance of the collection tasks, whose effects were partially offset by the recognition of a 1.6% rate in nonperforming loans.

Credito Real Durable Goods Loan Portfolio was Ps. 1,124.0 million, a growth of 33.8% over the Ps. 839.8 million  posted in 4Q13. The increase is a consequence of the implementation of a new loan campaign in benefit of the retailers. As of today, the Company has established 44 contracts with specialized retail chains. Nonperforming loan were 2.0% of the total portfolio. In addition, during the 4Q13 we originated loans in the amount of Ps. 330.9 million, an increment of 55.5% in comparison with 4Q12.

Credito Real Small Business Loans portfolio closed the year at Ps. 865.6 million. Nonperforming loans were 0.5% of the total portfolio. In October 2013, Credito Real established an agreement with Fondo H to acquire a small business loans portfolio of Ps. 657.5 million, thus enhancing our position in the sector. The loan provider serves a wide base of clients in the manufacturing, distribution and services sectors. It also develops a highly experienced, talented team fully capable to serve the market, in addition to holding a high quality base of loans. As a result, Credito Real's small business loans activity takes advantage of the knowledge it has of its clients and operates under two distribution channels: a business center located in Mexico City which is focused in small businesses; and a second channel known as Fondo H.

Credito Real Group Loans established an agreement in order to improve the Company's origination process. It recorded a portfolio of Ps. 207.7 million in 4Q13, an increase of 23.3% with respect to the Ps. 168.4 million posted in 4Q12. The competitive environment is expected to continue in the coming months, however, the Company considers it will record a phased growth within the niche market it serves. Nonperforming loans were 0.5% of the total portfolio, a favorable comparison against the 3.3% ratio observed in the same previous year´s quarter.

Credito Real Used Car Loans registered a portfolio in 4Q13 of  Ps. 60.6 million, as well as an loan origination of Ps. 20.8 million in the quarter with nonperforming loans of 2.3% as a percentage of  the total portfolio. As previously mentioned, the Company's growth strategy focus on identifying underserved market segments and establishing agreements with third parties to serve those customers.
