  • Offshore Fleet Utilization At 94.4%
  • 22.8% Higher Harbor Tugs Vessel Call Income
  • 11.3% Growth in Chemical Tankers Transportation Volume

Grupo TMM, S.A.B. (OTC: GTMAY) (BMV: TMM A) ("TMM" or the "Company"), a Mexican intermodal transportation and logistics Company, reported today its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2013.

MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW
José F. Serrano, chairman and chief executive officer of Grupo TMM, said, "Maritime performed solidly in the fourth quarter and full year of 2013, recording improved revenue, operating profit and EBITDA compared to the same periods last year. Additionally, our Offshore fleet reached 94.4 percent utilization, maintaining utilization of over 90 percent thus far in 2014. Moreover, our Chemical Tanker fleet increased its transportation volume 11.3 percent throughout 2013, and Harbor Tugs improved vessel call income by 22.8 percent."

Serrano concluded, "Our Shipyard segment improved its utilization throughout the year, reaching 90 percent by year end, improving this segment's income in 2013. We will continue to work on alternatives to improve the Company's balance sheet, while targeting new business opportunities at our Maritime and Port divisions."

FOURTH-QUARTER AND FULL-YEAR 2013 OPERATING AND FINANCIAL RESULTS
Compared to the same periods of last year, consolidated revenue in the 2013 fourth quarter and full year increased 11.5 percent and 9.5 percent, respectively, mainly due to improvements at the Maritime division.

Fourth-quarter 2013 consolidated operating profit was $112.3 million pesos, improving from an operating loss of $36.3 million pesos in the 2012 fourth quarter. Fourth-quarter 2013 consolidated operating profit included $14.1 million pesos for properties received as payment above its market price and $13.4 million pesos of net tax recoveries.

Full-year 2013 consolidated operating profit increased to $405.5 million pesos compared to $279.8 million pesos in the 2012 full year. Consolidated operating profit in 2013 included other net-income of $64.0 million pesos, mainly due to a tax benefit of $41.9 million pesos and $14.1 million pesos for properties received as payment above its market price. Consolidated operating profit in the 2012 full year includes other net expenses of $9.8 million pesos, mainly associated with a provision of fiscal resolution cost, partially offset by $74.2 million pesos from a subsidiary acquisition and $23.4 million pesos of cash dividends from affiliated companies. 

Excluding the above, non-recurrent events, consolidated operating profit in the fourth quarter of 2013 improved to $80.7 million pesos compared to $69.5 million pesos in the same period of 2012, and consolidated operating profit in the 2013 full year improved to $341.5 million pesos compared to $289.6 million in the 2012 full year. Higher year-over-year consolidated operating profit in the 2013 full-year and fourth-quarter periods was mainly attributable to improved operating profit at the Maritime division.

Consolidated EBITDA in the 2013 fourth quarter improved 118.5 percent to $257.6 million pesos compared to $117.9 million pesos in the same period of last year. Consolidated EBITDA in the 2013 full year improved 14.0 percent to $991.1 million pesos compared to $869.6 million pesos in the 2012 period.

Net interest expenses in the 2013 fourth quarter and full year were $196.7 million pesos and $821.7 million pesos, respectively. EBITDA minus interest expenses in the 2013 fourth quarter resulted in free cash flow of $60.9 million pesos compared to a deficit of $92.7 million pesos in the 2012 fourth quarter. For the full year, free cash flow was $169.4 million pesos in 2013 compared to $30.4 million pesos in 2012.

Maritime revenue in the 2013 fourth quarter increased 21.1 percent compared to the same period last year, mainly due to the income improvements in all business segments, except at Chemical Tankers, which reported 15.5 percent lower revenue due to reduced volumes.

In the 2013 full year, Maritime revenue improved 12.2 percent due mainly to: a 10.7 percent revenue increase at Offshore due to higher utilization; a 12.6 percent revenue improvement at Chemical Tankers as a result of operating one additional leased vessel during the first quarter and half of the second quarter of 2013; 20.3 percent revenue growth at Harbor Tugs due to an improved revenue mix; and a 14.0 percent revenue increase at Product Tankers due to a higher utilization of the vessels. Additionally, the Shipyard business reported 4.9 percent higher revenue in 2013 compared to 2012, as revenue improved sequentially throughout 2013, from $6.9 million pesos in the first quarter, to $9.8 million pesos in the second quarter, $18.4 million pesos in the third quarter and $17.8 million pesos in the fourth quarter.

Maritime operating profit increased 78.0 percent in the 2013 fourth quarter compared to the same period of last year, with improvements in all segments except Product Tankers and Harbor Tugs, which experienced lower revenue due to decreased volumes.

Maritime operating profit increased 25.4 percent in the 2013 full year compared to the 2012 full year, as a result of the improvements discussed above.

Maritime's EBITDA for the 2013 fourth quarter improved 21.9 percent to $265.9 million pesos compared with $218.2 million pesos in the 2012 period. Maritime's EBITDA in the 2013 full year increased 10.9 percent to $1,089.2 million pesos compared to $981.9 million pesos last year.

Ports and Terminals revenue decreased 34.7 percent and 5.2 percent in the 2013 fourth quarter and 2013 full year, respectively, compared to the same periods of 2012. In both periods the decrease was mainly attributable to a revenue loss at the Automotive segment due to the loss of a client, and to a revenue decline at Acapulco due to lower automobile export volumes compared to the same periods last year. These declines were partially offset by higher revenue at the Maintenance and Repair segment mainly due to a 6.6 percent volume increase at the Veracruz facility compared to the 2012 fourth quarter and full year.

Ports and Terminals operating profit decreased 29.3 percent and 25.4 percent in the 2013 fourth quarter and full year, respectively, compared to the same periods of 2012, mainly attributable to reduced revenue as previously mentioned.
