Grupo Financiero Santander Mexico Reports Third Quarter 2012 Net Income of Ps.4,215 Million

Solid Profitability and Growth Driven by Focus on Commercial Banking and Operational Efficiency

MEXICO CITY, Oct 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Grupo Financiero Santander Mexico, S.A.B. de C.V., (NYSE: BSMX; BMV: SANMEX), ("Santander Mexico"), one of the leading financial groups in the Mexican financial system, today announced financial results for the three- and nine-month periods ending September 30, 2012.

During 3Q12, Santander Mexico reported net income of Ps.4,215 million, representing a 2.2% year-on-year ("YoY") increase and a 20.2% sequential decrease. These comparisons however are affected by extraordinary gains in 3Q11 for the reversal of provisions to comply with CNBV (Comision Nacional Bancaria y de Valores) regulations and in 2Q12 for the gain on the sale and leaseback of branches. Excluding these one time events, normalized net income increased 24.8% YoY and 3.5% sequentially. Consolidated net income for 9M12 was Ps.14,513 million, an increase of 32.6%, or Ps.3,572 million higher than the corresponding figure in 9M11. Excluding the aforementioned extraordinary gains in 3Q11 and 2Q12, net income for 9M12 increased 30.5% or Ps.3,107 million.

Marcos Martinez, Executive Chairman and CEO, commented, "We are pleased with our strong third quarter results, which reinforce the merits of our strategic focus on commercial banking, low-risk profitable growth and operational efficiency. We delivered year-on-year increases of 14.9% and 14.4% in net interest income and  net commissions and fees, respectively. Furthermore, we executed well in our key business segments, as demonstrated by robust year-on-year growth of 28.6%, in both consumer loans and credit cards, as well as 78.4% increase in loans to small and medium enterprises ("SMEs"). Our focused growth strategy together with our strong emphasis on prudent risk management and an efficiency-oriented culture positions Santander Mexico as one of the most profitable franchises in Mexico."

Mr. Martinez continued, "This quarter we achieved a significant milestone in Santander Mexico's history: our successful international public offering, which values the bank at 16.5 billion dollars. This transaction enhances the Company's market position and brand recognition, while strengthening organizational transparency and market discipline. We begin a new chapter as a publicly traded company on strong footing and are well positioned to capitalize on the attractive fundamentals of Mexico's banking industry."
