Statement from the CEO

During the second quarter of 2015, UNIFIN once again experienced a very important moment in its history. On May 22, 2015, UNIFIN successfully concluded its Initial Public Offering (IPO), raising Ps. 1,932.7 million of new capital and the Company’s shares began trading on the Mexican Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “UNIFIN”. The goal of the IPO is to strengthen UNIFIN’s capital structure and support its future growth plans. With this capital, the Company will be able to consolidate its operations, based on its three most important pillars: growth, profitability and most fundamental, financial health.

We are very pleased with the results of the transaction, as the offering drew significant interest and was seven times oversubscribed, with demand from over 4,000 high-quality domestic and international institutional investors, and retail investors. UNIFIN’s IPO was the first of the year in Latin America. The Company’s initial stock price (Ps. 28.00) gained 10.2% during the first day of operations, reaching Ps. 30.85 per share by the day’s end, and 17.6% reaching Ps. 32.93 per share at the end of June 2015.

During the second quarter of 2015, UNIFIN’s net income reached Ps. 236.9 million, up 43.5% from Ps. 165.0 million in 2Q14. In addition the Company’s net income increased 140.6% to Ps. 594.8 million from Ps. 247.2 million in the first half of 2014. These results were driven primarily from leasing income from our growing client portfolio, which by the end of June 2015 reached Ps. 14,478.5 million, a 48.4% increase compared to Ps. 9,759.2 million as of June of 2014, including off-balance accounts comprised by the operating lease future rentals. In addition, the Company’s results were positively impacted due to the active hedging activities of our exposure to foreign exchange variations.

I would like to thank our stakeholders for their trust in UNIFIN’s position as a market leader. We reiterate our commitment to continue delivering positive results, as well as creating value for the shareholders, bondholders and to our increasing portfolio of clients.
