Grupo TMM, S.A.B. (OTC PINK: GTMAY) (BMV: TMM A) ("TMM" or the "Company"), a Mexican maritime transportation and logistics Company, reported today its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2016.

MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW
José F. Serrano, chairman and chief executive officer of Grupo TMM, said, "The instability in the oil industry during 2016 has strongly affected all participants in this market. TMM's principal customer reduced demand for our vessels services by more than 50 percent during the year and has significantly delayed in the payment of those services, which negatively affected revenues and cash flow. Nevertheless we implemented a strategic plan in 2016 to offset some of the impact of the reduced revenues. The most relevant actions included a strategic reduction of costs and SG&A expenses and factoring operations through NAFIN supplier's chain program to reduce liquidity risk as well as the effect of the new payment policies of the Company's principal customers. Despite the reduced demand for our services in 2016, TMM fulfilled its contractual obligations."

Mr. Serrano continued, "The Company continues believe Mexican Energy Reform will play an important role in the recovery of our industry, and are already starting to see some results from it. Drawing on the experience of over 60 years in the industry, our Maritime division has contracted four vessels, including the 'Eco III,' with Fieldwood Energy E&P México, which was awarded its contract through the Mexican Energy Reform. Additionally, our Ports and Terminals division in strategic alliance with TransCanada and Sierra Oil & Gas continues jointly developing storage and transportation infrastructure to serve the growing demand for refined products from Tuxpan to the central region of Mexico with a capacity of 100,000 barrels per day. These actions are part of our strategic plan to diversify sources of income as well as our customers, which we believe, will have a positive impact in the medium and long terms."

Mr. Serrano added, "In accordance with our fleet renewal plan, we have acquired a new generation harbor tug vessel, the 'TMM Colima,' with azimuthal propulsion, from the Dutch shipyard Damen Shipyards Group. The vessel commenced operations officially on December 30, 2016, in Manzanillo Port, where the Company has been an authorized concessionaire since 1997."

Mr. Serrano concluded, "TMM's Executive Board continues to believe that despite the difficult worldwide industry and national and global situation, the priority of our Company is to increase shareholder value through our commitment to excellence and high levels of safety and quality of services."

FOURTH-QUARTER AND FULL-YEAR 2016 OPERATING AND FINANCIAL RESULTS
Consolidated revenues in the 2016 fourth quarter and full year were $525.3 million and $2,647.5 million, respectively, compared to $821.6 million and $3,262 million, respectively, in the same period last year, mainly due to lower revenues in the Maritime segment, as the result of reduced demand from the Company's principal customers in offshore. 

Consolidated operating income in the 2016 fourth quarter decreased to $32.2 million compared to $214.2 million in the same period of 2015. In the full year 2016, consolidated operating income was $59.6 million compared to $461.2 million for the same period of 2015. In both periods, lower operating income is attributable to reduced results in offshore.

In the 2016 fourth quarter, non-recurrent operations reported $14.4 million of expenses compared to $135.5 million of income in the same period of 2015. In the full year of 2016 non-recurrent operations reported $107.9 million of income compared to $187.0 million of income in the same period last year.

Fourth-quarter 2016 consolidated EBITDA was $185.4 million compared to $364.6 million for the same period last year. In 2016 consolidated EBITDA was $697.0 million compared to $1,134.0 million for 2015.

In the 2016 fourth quarter Maritime revenues decreased to $402.8 million compared to $689.2 million in the same period last year attributable to a $121.7 million decrease in offshore revenues attributable to 32.6 percent utilization of vessels due to lower operations and budget reductions of the Company's principal costumers, a $10.0 million decrease in shipyard revenues attributable to the type of work performed, and a $103.4 decrease in product tanker revenues due to 67.3 percent utilization, partially offset by a $17.7 million increase in chemical tankers revenue attributable to higher volume transported and increased number of trips, as well as an $18.8 million increase in revenues at LNG terminal due to increased calls and improved average revenues per call.

Full-year 2016 Maritime revenues decreased to $2,167 million compared to $2,770.9 million in the same period last year attributable mainly to decreased cumulated utilization of 53.8 percent in offshore as well as lower revenues in shipyard and product tankers, partially offset by improved revenue of 29.5 percent in chemical tankers and 22.3 percent in harbor tug vessels due to improved fleet utilization.

Fourth-quarter 2016 Maritime operating profit decreased to $52.9 million from $96.5 million in the same period of 2015, mainly attributable to lower revenues in offshore partially offset by operating cost reductions. During the full year of 2016 Maritime operating profit decreased to $161.2 million from $492.5 million in 2015, mainly due to lower utilization in offshore, partially offset by improved results in the remaining Maritime segments, as well as the benefit of strategic cost reductions and favorable exchange rates.

Fourth-quarter 2016 Maritime EBITDA was $201.4 million compared to $240.6 million in the same period last year. EBITDA margin was 50.0 percent in the 2016 fourth quarter. Full-year 2016 Maritime EBITDA was $777.9 million compared to $1,140.5 million in the same period last year. Full-year 2016 Maritime EBITDA margin was 35.9 percent.

Ports and Terminals revenues increased 14.6 percent in the 2016 fourth quarter compared to the same period last year, primarily attributable to a 62.0 percent improvement in agencies revenues due to a greater number of cruise ship calls, as well as a 52.4 percent increase in intermodal terminal revenues and 39.2 percent increase in Tuxpan revenues, partially offset by a 23.6 percent decreased in API Acapulco revenues due to lower automotive volumes. Full-year 2016 Ports and Terminals revenues increased 8.3 percent compared to the same period last year mainly due to improved results at agencies, intermodal and Tuxpan.

Fourth-quarter 2016 Ports and Terminals operating profit was $11.4 million compared to $9.1 million in the same period of 2015, mainly due to improved results at agencies, intermodal terminal and Tuxpan partially offset by capital improvements in API Acapulco. Full-year 2016 Ports and Terminals operating profit was $36.7 million compared to $35.0 million in the same period last year.

Ports and Terminals EBITDA for the 2016 fourth quarter was $14.5 million compared to $13.2 million in the same period last year. Fourth-quarter 2016 EBITDA margin was 16.4 percent. Full-year 2016 Ports and Terminals EBITDA was $49.1 million compared to $50.5 million in the same period last year. Fourth-quarter 2016 EBITDA margin was 16.0 percent.

Fourth-quarter 2016 Warehousing services operating profit reported a lower loss of $8.4 million compared to a loss of $20.9 million in the same period of last year due mainly to the strategic reduction of costs. Full-year 2016 warehousing services operating profit reported a loss of $44.5 million compared to a loss of $48.1 million in the same period 2015.
