Grupo TMM, S.A.B., a Mexican Maritime-management transportation and logistics Company, reported today its financial results for the second quarter.

MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW
José F. Serrano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Grupo TMM, said, “The prolonged suspension of operations in the public, private and social sectors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the delayed recovery from the economic slowdown and the drop in global oil prices since 2019, have significantly affected the entire industry and the financial markets, with a significant impact on the Company’s operations this quarter. Nevertheless, we have implemented alternative strategies to reduce the impact on results as much as possible, while trying to maintain productivity levels in the Maritime, Ports and Terminals divisions, as well as Warehousing Services.”

“The Company has focused on maintaining the health and well-being of its collaborators, on-board personnel, local operating personnel, administrative and executive officers with strict measures to prevent the spread of infection. We have also implemented measures to maintain the operational and financial sustainability of the company. With these strategies, TMM is preparing for the new normal and ways of operating in the industry, as the pandemic recedes.”

“Taking advantage of more than 60 years in the industry, an excellent debt-to-cash ratio and the implementation of its technological transformation, as well as its strategic assets, the Company is well positioned to form alliances and make new investment projects with world-renowned companies, which will generate new income and high profitability in the short and medium-term.”

“Grupo TMM reaffirms its strategic focus of investing in profitable projects in Mexico, and to continue with the best integrated transportation, logistics, warehousing and distribution services, which will result in significant profits for the company and benefits for the country.”
