The following information with respect to 2019 includes the new accounting standard for leases under the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS-16) effective as of January 1, 2019.  All monetary amounts are in millions of Mexican Pesos.

Consolidated revenues for the fourth quarter of 2019 were $366.1 million, compared to $356.9 million in the same period of the previous year, mainly attributable to higher income in the Ports and Terminals Division as a result of the client diversification and attention strategy.  Consolidated revenues for the full-year 2019 were $1,475.7 million compared to $1,523.1 million for the same period last year, mainly due to a decrease in full-year Maritime revenue.

Consolidated operating results for the fourth quarter of 2019 resulted in a profit of $205.0 million compared to a profit of $47.8 million in the same period of 2018.  Full-year consolidated operating results for 2019 were $200.3 million, compared to a loss of $98.3 million in 2018.

Maritime revenues in the fourth quarter of 2019 increased 1.4 percent to $213.0 million, compared to $210.1 million in the same period of 2018, mainly due to a larger volume of repairs and services efficiencies to attended vessels in the Shipyard segment.  Full-year 2019 Maritime revenues were $868.5 million compared to $909.5 million in 2018, mainly due to the decrease in the Offshore segment and the reduction of the Maritime Management Fee, partially offset by better mix of repairs in the Shipyard segment.

Fourth-quarter 2019 Maritime operating profit increased $12.0 million to $21.6 million, compared to $9.6 million in the same period of 2018, mainly attributable to better mix of repairs in the Shipyard segment.  For the full-year 2019, operating profit was $113.6 million, compared to $122.5 million for same period of 2018, mainly due to the reduction of the Maritime Management Fee partially offset by a better result in the Shipyard segment and the Offshore segment cost reduction due to the disincorporation of one vessel in second quarter of 2018.

Fourth-quarter 2019 Ports and Terminals operating income was $13.6 million compared to $11.9 million for the same period of 2018, mainly attributable to a higher number of calls in the Shipping Agencies segment.  For the full-year 2019, Ports and Terminals operating income was $42.3 million, compared to $84.9 million for the same period 2018, due to the result of operations in the Maintenance and Repair of Containers segment in the port of Veracruz attributable to the low container export activity, as well as a decrease in exported cars in API Acapulco.
