TORONTO, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - Grupo Scotiabank today announced results for the third quarter of 2009. Continued underlying mortgage growth, higher non-interest income and lower provisions for credit losses were more than offset by the impact of falling market rates on interest income, higher expenses and a higher effective tax rate. Scotiabank Mexico's third quarter consolidated net income was Cdn$49 million (P$592 million).
These results are adjusted to a Canadian GAAP basis prior to their inclusion in Scotiabank's fourth quarter 2009 financial results. Scotiabank Mexico's contribution to Scotiabank's fourth quarter net income is estimated to be Cdn$51 million on a Canadian GAAP basis.
