Daniel Rodríguez Cofré, FEMSA’s Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“We had a very strong second quarter across the company, reflecting sound plans and solid execution at every business unit, and continuing with the good momentum that began at the end of last year and has accelerated through the first half of this year. Most of our operations continued to show strong growth and profitability trends, as consumers continued to resume pre-COVID behaviors while making modest adjustments required by the shape of our “new normality” across our different markets.
At Proximity, we recorded the highest-ever EBITDA margin for a second quarter, while Health operations continued to perform well against an increasingly challenging comparison base in Chile. Our Digital efforts made progress in customer acquisition, surpassing 15 million users that are already part of our digital ecosystem, either through Spin by OXXO, OXXO Premia or both. Logistics and Distribution operations also had a good quarter, as facility occupancy trends continued to improve in the United States and we advanced in our cross-selling efforts at Envoy Solutions. And Coca-Cola FEMSA delivered solid top-line growth and successfully navigated a challenging raw material environment, defending profitability.
Halfway through the year our business units are in great shape, and we feel good about our chances to meet our ambitious plans for the full-year and beyond. Beyond our solid organic expansion, we continue to selectively deploy capital along our core business verticals, always driven by our outstanding team of colleagues. We will continue to push ourselves to create long-term value through profitable growth, but also ensuring that the value we create, is shared by all our stakeholders.”
