  • Earnings per basic and diluted share totaled Ps. 0.59 or Ps. 7.07 per ADR for in 3Q13.

CEO COMMENTS

Mr. Rodolfo Ramos Arvizu, Chief Executive Officer of Bachoco, stated, "This was a typical third quarter for the Company, in terms of seasonality, with chicken prices at their weakest.

Nevertheless, we continued to post positive results and margins in all of our main business lines, with chicken volumes fully recovering by the end of the third quarter as we had anticipated.

As a result, we estimate that our chicken market share has been recovered, thanks to the confidence of our clients in our company and the excellent job of our sales force.

Additionally, we faced a tough basis of comparison due to strong results posted in the third quarter of 2012, which was atypically strong, in terms of seasonality for the poultry industry.

Lastly, our CAPEX were entirely financed with internal resources and our balance sheet remains solid, with strong cash levels."

NET SALES

The Company's 3Q13 net sales totaled Ps. 9,437.0 million, 4.7% below the Ps. 9,901.0 million reported in 3Q12. This mainly resulted from lower chicken prices in the Mexican market and a drop in chicken volume compared to 3Q12. This was partially offset by an increase in egg sales, while the rest of the Company's business lines had mixed results.

In 3Q13, sales of our U.S. operations represented 23.0%% of total sales, compared with 22.0% in 3Q12.

Total sales for the 9M13 increased 4.6% when compared with the same period of 2012.

GROSS PROFIT

Cost of sales totaled Ps. 8,155.5 million, 2.2% lower than Ps. 8,342.6 million reported in the same period of 2012, mainly due to lower volume sold and steady unit costs of sales.

This resulted in gross profit of Ps. 1,281.5 million and a gross margin of 13.6% in 3Q13, compared to a gross profit of Ps. 1,558.4 million, and a gross margin of 15.7% in 3Q12.

Meanwhile, gross profit for 9M13 was Ps. 5,267.1, 17.6% higher than Ps. 4,420.0 million reached in the same period of 2012. Gross margin was 17.6% and 15.4% in the same periods of 2013 and 2012, respectively.

SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

In 3Q13, total selling, general and administrative expenses reached Ps. 827.5 million, compared to Ps. 839.9 million reported in 3Q12; this represented 8.8% and 8.5% over the total sales respectively, as a result of strict expense controls.

OTHER INCOME (EXPENSE), NET

The "other income (expense)"line includes mainly the selling of unused assets as well as the selling of hens and other by-products.  We record such sales as expenses when the sale price is lower than the book value of those assets.

In 3Q13, the amount was an expense of Ps. 80.9 million, compared with other income of Ps. 63.7 million reported in 3Q12, mainly attributed to gain in sales of several unused assets and E-1 effect.

During the first nine months of 2013, the Company recorded other income of Ps. 31.7 million compared to other income of Ps. 17.4 million recorded in the 9M12.

OPERATING INCOME

Operating income in 3Q13 totaled Ps.373.1 million, which represents an operating margin of 4.0%, compared with Ps.782.2 million of income and 7.9% margin reported in 3Q12; the decrease in the operating income is mainly attributed to a lower gross profit.

In 9M13, operating income was Ps. 2,871.5 million, representing an operating margin of 9.6%, compared with Ps. 1,912.4 million of income and a 6.7% margin reported in the same period of 2012, which reflects a strong performance of the Company in 9M13.

NET FINANCING INCOME

In the third quarter of 2013, the Company reported net financing income of Ps. 60.8 million, compared to Ps. 19.9 million in net finance income reported in 3Q12. The change is mainly attributed to higher interest income and exchange rate gains.

Net finance income for the 9M13 totaled Ps. 111.6 million, compared with income of 113.0 million in 9M12.

TAXES

Industrias Bachoco and all of its subsidiaries file separate income tax returns.  Total taxes in 3Q13 were Ps. 80.0 million and Ps. 595.1 for 9M13.

NET INCOME

Net income in 3Q13 was Ps. 353.5 million, representing Ps. 0.59 per share or Ps. 7.07 per ADR, compared with a net income of Ps. 627.5 million, which represents Ps. 1.05 per share or Ps. 12.56 per ADR reported in 3Q12.

EBITDA
