Gruma Corporation Key Developments

Gruma Corporation Reports Earnings and Operating Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2015

Gruma Corporation reported earnings and operating results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales grew 3% to MXN 9,909 million. Net sales rose at a lower rate than sales volume principally because of the depreciation of European currencies and, to a lesser extent, lower corn flour prices following price reductions implemented in October 2014. Operating income surged 24% to MXN 1,126 million and operating margin rose to 11.4% from 9.4%, which came from the U.S. operations, in particular the tortilla business. EBITDA increased 18% to MXN 1,435 million. For the quarter, the company reported sales volume rose 6% to 441,000 metric tons. The volume increase was driven by both the U.S. and European operations.
