Scotiabank Mexico Announces First Quarter Results

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 Cdn$70 million (P$853 million) in the same quarter last year. The main 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 last year.

These results are adjusted to a Canadian GAAP basis prior to their inclusion in Scotiabank's second quarter 2011 financial results. Scotiabank Mexico's contribution to Scotiabank's second quarter net income is estimated to be Cdn$84 million on a Canadian GAAP basis.
