"In the second quarter of the year we achieved growth in revenue and net
income of 7% and 31%, respectively, thanks to a focus on innovative
execution at the point of sale and in our product portfolio to better
serve the needs of our customers and consumers, combined with the
rollout of price-pack initiatives in most of our operations, which will
generate the most impact in the second half of the year", stated
Francisco Garza Egloff, Chief Executive Officer of Arca Continental.

"Within a climate of economic and political volatility in the majority
of the markets we serve, in 2018, we reiterate our firm commitment to

distinguished our company throughout its history, with the goal to be in
a favorable position to continue delivering profitable and sustainable
results for our shareholders", he added.
