José Antonio Fernandez Carbajal, FEMSA’s Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“Our first quarter results showed we are carrying the positive momentum from last year, into 2024. The majority of our operations, including the two that contribute most to our results, delivered excellent numbers across the board. Proximity achieved double-digit growth in top-line and operating income, driven by strong and balanced same-store sales growth, healthy new-store expansion, and good expense control. For its part, Coca-Cola FEMSA delivered a potent set of numbers across its own income statement, driven by strong volume and revenue growth in its major markets.

Digital@FEMSA continued to add users and advance towards its ecosystem objectives, and we also saw good progress at Valora and OXXO Gas. The one operation that is facing strong headwinds is Health, where we continue to navigate a tough competitive environment in Mexico, and a rapidly evolving institutional environment in Colombia. Our team is well advanced in adjusting the strategy to overcome those challenges, and we are confident the trends will improve and eventually converge with the positive dynamics we see elsewhere in our Company.

On the capital allocation front, during the quarter our shareholders approved several measures linked to our capital allocation framework, such as raising our ordinary dividend, approving a special dividend for this year, and doubling our buyback capacity. We made progress on the execution of this capital return strategy, and we began to move toward our stated leverage objective.

In short, we hit the ground running in 2024 and we are hard at work advancing on every element of our strategy, as we continue to pursue and capture the significant opportunities before us. I am grateful to the entire FEMSA team for their extraordinary dedication.”
