Grupo TMM Reports Third-Quarter 2016 Financial Results

(In Millions of Mexican Pesos)

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2016) - Grupo TMM, S.A.B. (OTC PINK: GTMAY) (BMV: TMM A) 

2016 Third-Quarter Results Include:

  • Income of $529.7 million
  • Maritime fleet utilization of 61 percent in offshore segment and 93 percent in product tankers and chemical tankers
  • Strategic alliance with TransCanada and Sierra Oil & Gas announced
  • Implementation of corporate actions to capitalize $4,600 million
  • Commenced supply chain financing with Greensill Capital Ltd through NAFIN supply chain program
  • Costs and SG&A in line with strategic reduction plan

Grupo TMM, S.A.B. (OTC PINK: GTMAY) (BMV: TMM A) ("TMM" or the "Company"), a Mexican Maritime transportation and logistics Company, reported today its financial results for the third quarter of 2016.

MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW
José F. Serrano, chairman and chief executive officer of Grupo TMM said, "This has been a difficult year for the oil industry, with reduced demand for oil services experienced around the world. In Mexico, we have seen a decrease in demand mostly for offshore supply vessels, as well for product tankers and chemical tankers."

"We believe Mexican Energy Reform will play an important role in the recovery of the industry in the short and medium term, allowing us to diversify our sources of income as well as our customers. For example, expected investments around $2,500 million dollars for new seismic maps will offshore support vessels. In addition, investments in exploration and production, including those related to Round 1, will increase during 2017, which clearly represents an opportunity to hire our vessels with new and current customers."

Mr. Serrano continued, "Energy Reform not only represents opportunities for the Maritime sector, where Grupo TMM has more than 60 years of experience, it also brings an opportunity for growth in our Ports and Terminals segment. In this segment, we recently announced a strategic alliance with TransCanada and Sierra Oil & Gas to jointly develop storage and transportation infrastructure to serve the growing demand for refined products from Tuxpan, Veracruz to the central region of Mexico. This project includes a marine terminal for storage and distribution in Tuxpan, a 265 kilometer pipeline with capacity of 100,000 barrels per day and an inland distribution hub, providing an excellent connectivity with central Mexico."

We are pleased to inform that TMM executed certain corporate acts related to its capitalization plan, which improved the shareholder's equity to $3,007.7 million as of September 30, the Company's plan (objective) is to further strengthen its Balance Sheet, and Company's shareholder equity target is $6,000 million. These actions have improved TMM's debt to equity ratio and will allow the Company to be better positioned to overcome the challenges of the global maritime sector as well as to take advantage of growth opportunities in the Ports and Terminals sector. TMM remains committed to increase shareholder value while maintaining the highest levels of safety and quality in its services.

Grupo TMM engaged Greensill Capital Ltd. for additional supply chain financing. Greensill Capital Ltd. is the first foreign financial institution to operate through the NAFIN's supply chain program. The Company continues to work with other national financial institutions for additional supply chain financing, all of these to mitigate liquidity risk and strengthen Company's cash position.

Mr. Serrano concluded, "The Company will continue with its efforts to reduce Costs and SG&A expenses, through a more efficient inventory management (fuel and spare parts), negotiations with suppliers, insurance companies and other agencies, as well as a reduction in Maritime crew expenses through efficient crew rotation."

THIRD-QUARTER OPERATING AND FINANCIAL RESULTS
Compared to the same period last year, consolidated revenue in the 2016 third quarter and first nine months decreased 33.3 percent and 13.4 percent respectively, mainly due to lower revenue in the Maritime segment, as the result of reduced demand in the offshore segment attributable to lower activity in the energy industry.

Consolidated operating income in the 2016 third quarter decreased to a loss of $139.2 million compared to income of $97.7 million in the same period last year, mainly due to offshore results in the Maritime segment. In the first nine months of 2016 consolidated operating income was $35.3 million compared to $274.1 million for the same period of 2015, attributable to decreased utilization of offshore vessels, partially offset by proceeds of $109.4 million from the sale of a strategic asset to a company related to Grupo TMM and directly linked to the strategic alliance with TransCanada and Sierra Oil & Gas in the development of a hydrocarbon storage terminal.

In the 2016 third quarter, income from non-recurrent operations was $15.3 million mainly due to proceeds from the sale of assets, compared to $40.7 million in the same period 2015. In the first nine months of 2016 income from non-recurrent operations was $94.2 million income compared to $51.5 million income in the same period last year.

In the 2016 nine-month period, consolidated EBITDA was $518.3 million compared to $795.1 million for the same period of 2015.

Compared to the same period last year, Maritime revenue decreased 35.8 percent in the 2016 third quarter due mainly to lower revenue in the offshore segment of 62.4 percent attributable to 39 percent utilization of vessels due to a recent budget reduction by the Company's principal customer, a 16.9 percent revenue reduction in product tankers due to lower average rates and 82 percent utilization, and to a $9.4 million decrease in shipyard revenue mainly attributable to the type of work performed, partially offset by higher revenue in chemical tankers of 27.2 percent attributable to higher volume transported and improved freight per ton value, as well as a 26.2 percent increase in harbor tugs vessels, due mainly to increased calls at the LNG terminal and better average revenue per call.

Maritime revenue decreased 15.2 percent during the first nine months of 2016 compared to the same period last year, due mainly to lower offshore segment revenue of 33.4 percent and cumulated utilization of 60.8 percent and a 3.3 percent decrease in shipyard revenue, partially offset by improved revenue in chemical tankers of 29.8 percent, harbor tug vessels of 20.5 percent and product tankers of 5.4 percent due to better fleet utilization.

Third-quarter Maritime operating profit decreased from income of $119.9 million in 2015 to a loss of $65.1 million, mainly attributable to lower revenue in the offshore segment partially offset by operating cost reductions. During the first nine months of 2016 Maritime operating profit decreased from $395.9 million in 2015 to $108.4 million in 2016 mainly due to lower utilization in the offshore segment, partially offset by improved results in the remaining Maritime segments, as well as the benefit of strategic cost reductions and favorable exchange rates.

Third-quarter 2016 Maritime EBITDA decreased to $88.9 million from $297.3 million in the 2015 period. EBITDA margin was 19.7 percent in the 2016 third quarter. During the first nine months of 2016 Maritime EBITDA decreased to $576.5 million compared to $900.0 million in the same period last year. First-nine month 2016 Maritime EBITDA margin was 32.7 percent.

Ports and Terminals revenue decreased 4.6 percent in the 2016 third quarter compared to the same period last year primarily attributable to lower Tuxpan and Tampico port revenue due to lower transported volumes, as well as decreased revenue in API Acapulco attributable to lower automotive volumes, partially offset by a benefit in agencies revenue due to better average rates, as well as increased revenue in the intermodal terminal. During the first nine months of 2016, Ports and Terminals revenue increased 6.0 percent compared to the same period last year.

Third-quarter 2016 Ports and Terminals operating profit decreased to $2.9 million compared to $6.9 million in the same period of 2015 mainly due to lower revenue at the Tuxpan and Tampico ports. During the first nine months of 2016 Ports and Terminals operating profit was $25.3 million compared to $25.9 million in the first nine months of 2015.

In the 2016 third quarter Ports and Terminals EBITDA was $6.0 million compared to $10.5 million in the same period last year. EBITDA margin for both the 2015 and 2016 third quarters was 8.6 percent. During the first nine months of 2016 Ports and Terminals EBITDA was $34.6 million compared to $37.4 million in the same period last year.
