MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW
José F. Serrano, chairman and chief executive officer of Grupo TMM, said, "In the second quarter, Grupo TMM reported improved results over the first quarter of this year due mainly to stronger Maritime revenues, particularly in the offshore segment, where we are benefitting from a gradual recovery of the oil industry, the benefits provided by the Mexican Energy Reform, as well as contracting vessels with new patrons in the oil industry in Mexico, including Fieldwood Energy E&P México, Hokchi Energy, Talos Energy, ENI México and Hornbeck Offshore Services of México. We believe the oil industry in Mexico will continue its trend recovery."

Mr. Serrano continued, "Additionally, our Ports and Terminals division reported significant progress on their project to develop storage and transportation infrastructure to serve the growing demand for the movement of refined products from Tuxpan to the central region of Mexico jointly with our strategic partnerships, TransCanada and Sierra Oil & Gas. This division also reported improved year-over-year results during the second quarter due to diversification of customers."

Mr. Serrano concluded, "Grupo TMM continues to diversify with new national and international customers, create strategies to reduce costs and SG&A expenses while maintaining a commitment to excellence of service, and strengthen the Company in order to take advantage of all the opportunities in our industry, always while considering the complicated global and national macroeconomic circumstances."

SECOND-QUARTER 2017 OPERATING AND FINANCIAL RESULTS
Consolidated revenues increased sequentially 29.6 percent to $659.4 million compared to $509.3 million in the first quarter of 2017, primarily attributable to better results in the Maritime segment due to gradual recovery of the oil industry.

For the six-months, consolidated revenues in the 2017 period were $1,168.7 million compared to $1,562.4 million in the 2016 period.

During the first six months of 2017, Ports and Terminals revenues improved 22.4 percent to $183.9 million compared to $150.3 million in the same period of 2016.

Ports and Terminals operating profit increased 54.2 percent to $12.6 million compared to $8.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 mainly due to revenue improvement in API Acapulco, Ports Terminals and the operating result in Maintenance and Repair segment.
