Grupo Financiero Interacciones Reports Strong Financial Position in 4Q13; 18.46% ROE Following Equity Offering

- Loan portfolio up 13.11% YoY and 7.78% QoQ in 4Q13 to Ps.62,953 million

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Grupo Financiero Interacciones, S.A. de C.V., (BMV: GFINTERO), ("Grupo Financiero Interacciones" or "GFI"), the largest specialized Mexican financial group with a business model focused on providing financing, risk management and financial advisory services mainly to the Mexican public sector, today announced results for the three- and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2013. In 4Q13, Grupo Financiero Interacciones reported net income of Ps.444 million, representing an increase of 90.56% YoY and a 0.89% decline QoQ. During 2013, Grupo Financiero Interacciones reported net income of Ps.1,638 million, representing an 16.50% increase from 2012.

Mr. Carlos Hank Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer of Grupo Financiero Interacciones, noted, "We are very pleased with our fourth quarter performance. We reported net income of Ps.444 million, closing out yet another solid year of growth for Grupo Financiero Interacciones achieving net income of Ps.1,638 million in 2013. Return on equity for the quarter was 18.46% and reflects our recent capital increase, which will allow us to continue implementing our growth strategy over the next two years."

"Furthermore, we expanded our loan portfolio by 13.11% YoY this quarter, despite selling a portion of a loan portfolio with one of our state clients for a total of Ps.2,623 million. This sale reflects our commitment to maintaining adequate loan diversification in line with our internal policy, which is stricter than Mexican Financial Regulations. Excluding this transaction, the loan portfolio would have increased 17.82% YoY and 12.27% QoQ, reflecting acceleration in the growth of the loan portfolio of our three business lines: Government, Infrastructure, and SME banking during the quarter."

"Continuing with our commitment to corporate governance, we are pleased to report that we have added two highly-qualified independent directors to our Board this quarter, Mr. Jose Julian Sidaoui Dib and Mr. Andres Antonius Gonzalez, thus achieving our goal of having a Board with 50% representation of independent members."

"Looking ahead, we see very good growth prospects in all of our market segments - Government, Infrastructure and SME banking -  driven by an expected stronger economy in Mexico this year, as well as higher infrastructure investments. Our optimistic view is further supported in the medium-term by the positive effects expected from the recently approved structural reforms, particularly in the energy field," concluded Mr. Hank Gonzalez.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
They say multi-cloud is coming, but organizations are leveraging multiple clouds already. According to a study by 451 Research, only 21% of organizations were using a single cloud.

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
