Jul 28, 2015, 18:03 ET from Grupo Financiero Interacciones, S.A. de C.V.

MEXICO CITY, July 28, 2015 /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 six-month periods ended June 30, 2015.

Mr. Carlos Rojo Macedo, Chief Executive Officer of Grupo Financiero Interacciones, commented: "GFI reported an outstanding performance this quarter despite the overall uncertain environment in the financial markets, the perceived liquidity in our niche market and the overall lackluster credit market in Mexico.  This translated into 16.84% ROE and earnings of Ps.541 million pesos for the quarter. Our strict cost control policy resulted in an efficiency ratio of 35.63%, while our focus on asset quality allowed us to deliver an NPL ratio of 0.14%.

"This strong performance was achieved despite loan growth this quarter – up 20.76% year-on-year and 3.13% on a sequential basis following the seasonality of our business model, where we experience a strong pick-up in lending towards the end of the year. Nonetheless, this was significantly above market growth of 12.90% annually and 1.17% quarterly."

"Most importantly, results highlight GFI´s ability to generate strong results through core commission generation. Our capability to provide tailor made solutions to our clients contributed to strong commissions at our Banking unit – 37.12% higher than those reported in the previous quarter and 45.57% above 2Q14 levels. Additionally, our brokerage firm reported a 21.51% QoQ increase in trading income leveraging the volatility in the marketplace to create trading opportunities.

"Innovation is an important element of our business strategy as we seek to develop new specialized products and services to continue capturing market share in our niche markets. At our SME banking unit in particular, the successful introduction of innovative financing solutions for leasing companies was a significant contributor to the 95.00% sequential growth in commissions achieved this quarter."

"We also continued to make progress in our efforts to achieve an optimal funding structure. Funding sources increased Ps.8 billion mainly driven by our traditional focus in growing quality stable institutional deposits, which were up 14.44% on a quarterly basis and by the issuance of another Ps.228 million tranche as part of our Ps.1,000 million sub-debt issuance that took place last quarter. In keeping with our funding discipline, we have focused on attracting stable deposits - according to Basel III - allowing us to achieve surplus of Ps.6 billion pesos in daily liquidity and a LCR ratio of 157%, significantly above the 60% regulatory requirement. Additionally, we reduced the mismatch between assets and liabilities by 1 year in just 12 months."

"Looking ahead, we are confident of the opportunities ahead as we further implement our innovation strategy across all of our business lines, while continuing to drive growth of our traditional core lending activities to deliver consistent profitability." concluded Mr. Carlos Rojo Macedo.
