GEO Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Results

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Corporacion GEO S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV: GEOB; GEOB:MM, ADR Level I CUSIP: 21986V204; Latibex: XGEO) GEO, Mexico's leading low-income housing developer, today announced results for the fourth quarter 2012. Accumulated Revenues and EBITDA decreased 5.1% and 5.3% respectively compared to 2011.

Luis Orvananos Lascurain, Corporacion GEO's CEO, commented, "2012 could be characterized as a year of hurdles and challenges for the housing industry, but also as a year when GEO made decisive choices and carried out important steps that would align the Company's strategy to the industry's newly strengthened focus on the Mexican Housing Policy which looks after an improved sustainability in homebuilding. As a result of the industry changes in 2012, accumulated revenues decreased by 5.1% compared to 2011, the result of a 6.1% reduction in homes delivered." Mr. Orvananos continued, "We will continue to execute our conservative strategy in an effort to further strengthen operations. We will prioritize cash flow generation and debt level reduction and plan to reduce our land and other CAPEX investment as appropriate while decreasing SG&A expenses."

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
