Grupo Financiero Interacciones Reports Strong Financial Position in 4Q13; 18.46% ROE Following Equity Offering

- Loan portfolio up 13.11% YoY and 7.78% QoQ in 4Q13 to Ps.62,953 million

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 21, 2014 /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 twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2013. In 4Q13, Grupo Financiero Interacciones reported net income of Ps.444 million, representing an increase of 90.56% YoY and a 0.89% decline QoQ. During 2013, Grupo Financiero Interacciones reported net income of Ps.1,638 million, representing an 16.50% increase from 2012.

Mr. Carlos Hank Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer of Grupo Financiero Interacciones, noted, "We are very pleased with our fourth quarter performance. We reported net income of Ps.444 million, closing out yet another solid year of growth for Grupo Financiero Interacciones achieving net income of Ps.1,638 million in 2013. Return on equity for the quarter was 18.46% and reflects our recent capital increase, which will allow us to continue implementing our growth strategy over the next two years."

"Furthermore, we expanded our loan portfolio by 13.11% YoY this quarter, despite selling a portion of a loan portfolio with one of our state clients for a total of Ps.2,623 million. This sale reflects our commitment to maintaining adequate loan diversification in line with our internal policy, which is stricter than Mexican Financial Regulations. Excluding this transaction, the loan portfolio would have increased 17.82% YoY and 12.27% QoQ, reflecting acceleration in the growth of the loan portfolio of our three business lines: Government, Infrastructure, and SME banking during the quarter."

"Continuing with our commitment to corporate governance, we are pleased to report that we have added two highly-qualified independent directors to our Board this quarter, Mr. Jose Julian Sidaoui Dib and Mr. Andres Antonius Gonzalez, thus achieving our goal of having a Board with 50% representation of independent members."

"Looking ahead, we see very good growth prospects in all of our market segments - Government, Infrastructure and SME banking -  driven by an expected stronger economy in Mexico this year, as well as higher infrastructure investments. Our optimistic view is further supported in the medium-term by the positive effects expected from the recently approved structural reforms, particularly in the energy field," concluded Mr. Hank Gonzalez.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

Service providers will w...

DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved.

Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data.
