TORONTO, Feb. 29, 2012 /CNW/ - Grupo Scotiabank today announced results
for the fourth quarter of 2011. Scotiabank Mexico's fourth quarter
consolidated net income was Cdn$62 million (P$831 million), compared to
Cdn$72 million (P$878 million) in the same quarter last year. The
decrease for the quarter was a result of lower net interest income and
higher operating expenses, partially offset by higher non-interest
revenues and lower provisions for credit losses.
These results are adjusted to reflect International Financial Reporting
Standards (IFRS) prior to their inclusion in Scotiabank's first quarter
2012 financial results. Scotiabank Mexico's results included in
Scotiabank's first quarter net income are estimated to be Cdn$64
million on an IFRS basis.
