TORONTO, April 29 /CNW/ - Grupo Scotiabank today announced results for
the first quarter of 2011. Scotiabank Mexico's first quarter
consolidated net income was Cdn$75 million (P$917 million), compared to

drivers of these results were higher net interest income and
non-interest revenues and lower credit provisions, partially offset by
the impact of higher operating expenses. Scotiabank Mexico's capital
ratio remained strong at 17.8% compared to 17.4% in the same quarter
These results are adjusted to a Canadian GAAP basis prior to their
