Comments from the CEO

Mr. Máximo Juda, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We are pleased with our progress in the first quarter of 2018. While exchange rate effects on our consolidated figures adversely impacted our first quarter sales growth when expressed in Mexican pesos, year over year sales increased 4.1% in local currencies, with one of the highest quarterly EBITDA margins in our Company's history. This is a reflection of improved fulfillment capabilities as well as our streamlined operations and the continued successful execution of important cost containment strategies throughout our organization."

Mr. Juda continued: "Further, we made important headway in anticipation of launching our new manufacturing facility located in the State of Mexico. We continued to rationalize product portfolio with a focus on our most profitable SKUs, ensuring optimal plant efficiency, and ramped up our innovation progress at the Mexico City pilot plant in anticipation of launches in the second half of the year. Construction of the new production facility is progressing well and remains on track to begin production in the fourth quarter of 2018, to ensure superior product quality and an enhanced value equation, while economies of scale will drive further important cost efficiencies."
