“The strength of our portfolio, continual investment, and proven execution capabilities at the point of sale, as well as the constant efficiency in our operations, allowed us to mitigate the negative impact on volume caused by the challenging business climate and additional taxes in Mexico, our core market. These actions led to increase our market leadership together with 6.6% increase in Net Income and a 7.3% improvement in EBITDA when compared to the same period of last year, which further strengthens our business model and long-term vision,” stated Francisco Garza Egloff, Chief Executive Officer of Arca Continental.

“In addition, as part of our strategy to generate new vehicles for creating value and to further diversify our geographic presence, we’re very pleased to mention our recent acquisition of a majority stake in Tonicorp, Ecuador’s leading value-added dairy company, in which we have the honor to participate as equal partners with The Coca-Cola Company in this joint venture,” he added.
