MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW
José F. Serrano, chairman and chief executive officer of Grupo TMM, said, "With over 60 years in the shipping industry, TMM is well positioned as a leader in the oil sector with extensive experience in national and international markets. We are prepared to take advantage of opportunities presented by Mexican Energy Reform with Pemex and new members in the industry. We anticipate completing our capitalization process in the second half of this year, strengthening our balance sheet and providing the ability to meet the growing demands of our markets."

SECOND-QUARTER AND FIRST-HALF 2015 OPERATING AND FINANCIAL RESULTS
Compared to the same period last year, consolidated revenues in the 2015 second quarter and first six months increased 28.0 percent and 15.7 percent respectively, mainly due to higher revenues in the Maritime segment partially offset by lower revenues in the Port and Terminals segment during the reported periods.

Compared to the same period of last year, consolidated operating income in the 2015 second quarter decreased 2.6 percent to $76.5 million, mainly due to the lower income in Ports and Terminals as well as the effect of the sale of the oldest product tanker in the Maritime segment. In the 2015 first six months, consolidated operating income decreased year over year 12.7 percent to $176.4 million from $202.1 million in same period of 2014, mainly due to the vessel sale in the Maritime segment.

Excluding the sale of vessels in the Maritime segment in the second quarters of 2014 and 2015, consolidated operating income would have been $140.1 million in the 2015 period and $59.5 million in the 2014 period, an improvement of 135.5 percent year over year. First six-month 2015 consolidated operating income would have been $240.0 million compared to $183.1 million in the 2014 period excluding the sale of vessels in both years, an improvement of 31.1 percent.

In the 2015 second quarter, other expenses net were $5.3 million compared to $1.1 million in the 2014 second quarter due mainly to the disposal of assets. In the first six months of 2015, other net income was $10.9 million compared with $22.8 million in the same period last year due mainly to the proceeds from the sale of assets.

Second-quarter 2015 consolidated EBITDA was $257.5 million compared to $228.6 million for the same period last year. In the 2015 six-month period, consolidated EBITDA was $514.7 million compared to $500.1 million for the same period of 2014.

Free cash flow during the second quarter of 2015 was $75.2 million compared to $36.1 million in the same period last year and during the first six months of 2014 was $158.6 million compared to $114.5 million in the same period last year.

Compared to the same period last year, Maritime revenues grew 34.4 percent in the 2015 second quarter due mainly to 45.3 percent higher revenues in the offshore segment attributable to a better mix and higher average rates, 30.9 percent higher revenues in chemical tankers attributable to improved average freight rates, and 28.4 percent higher revenues in product tankers attributable to a better mix and higher average rates. Maritime revenues improved $220.5 million, or 19.0 percent, in the 2015 first six months compared to the same period last year mainly due to an increase in offshore revenues of 27.5 percent due to better mixing rates, an increase in chemical tanker revenues of 15.6 percent due to an improvement in average freight rates, and an increase in shipyard revenues of 20.1 percent due to maximizing installed capacity.

Second-quarter Maritime operating profit improved 18.5 percent from $125.0 million in 2014 to $148.1 million in 2015. First six-month Maritime operating profit increased 3.6 percent from $266.3 million in 2014 to $276.0 million in 2015. In both periods, Maritime operating profit was impacted by $63.6 million of costs and amortization related to the sale of the tanker Palenque II, as well as increased operating costs in the tug vessel segment attributable to the extension of the contract for port towing service for 16 years.

Excluding the impact of vessel sales in 2014 and 2015, second-quarter Maritime operating profit would have been $211.8 million in the 2015 period compared to $106.0 million in the 2014 period, an increase of 99.8 percent. In the first six months, Maritime operating profit would have been $339.6 million in the 2015 period compared to $247.2 million in the 2014 period, an increase of 37.4 percent, absent the impact of vessel sales in both periods.

Second-quarter 2015 Maritime EBITDA increased 19.9 percent to $323.2 million compared to $269.5 million in the same period of 2014. During the first six months of 2015, Maritime EBITDA increased 8.9 percent to $602.7 million compared to $553.4 million in the same period of 2014.

Year over year, Ports and Terminals revenues decreased 13.0 percent in the 2015 second quarter to $67.6 million, primarily attributable to lower revenues in the Acapulco operations due to fewer transported cars, reduced operations in the Tuxpan terminal, as well as a decreased Automotive services, partially offset by higher revenues in the Maintenance and Repair segment and the intermodal terminal. In the first six months of 2015, Port and Terminals income decreased 11.5 percent year over year mainly due to lower volume in the Tuxpan terminal and lower services in the Automotive segment.

Second-quarter 2015 Ports and Terminals operating profit decreased $8.5 million to $7.2 million compared to $15.6 million in the same period of 2014 mainly attributable to reduced Acapulco, Tuxpan and Automotive services. During the first six months of 2015 Ports and Terminals operating profit decreased $7.3 million to $18.9 million compared to $26.3 million during the 2014 period, mainly due to reduced Tuxpan and Acapulco services, partially offset by improved results from Agencies, the maritime terminal of Tampico and the Automotive segment.

Ports and Terminals EBITDA for the 2015 second quarter decreased to $11.2 million compared to $19.3 million in the same period of 2014. During the first six months of 2015 Ports and Terminals EBITDA decreased to $26.8 million compared to $33.4 million in the same period of 2014.
