Maritime revenues in the second quarter of 2018 recorded $258.2 million compared to $531.6 million in the same period last year, mainly attributable to the effect of TMMDM´s deconsolidation, as well as an increase in income including $15.6 million from the Shipyard and $46.8 million from the Bulk Carriers new business, which mainly transports steel from Veracruz to Colombia. In the first six-month period of 2018 Maritime revenues recorded $491.8 million, compared to $918.4 million reported in the same period of the previous year, mainly due to TMMDM´s deconsolidation effects, as well as improved rates in the Shipyard and an increase of clients from Bulk Carriers new business; this was partially offset by a decrease in Tugboat, due to less calls in the LNG service and the impact on Parcel Tankers by the reduction of one vessel in the operation.

Second-quarter 2018 Maritime operating profit was $58.8 million compared to $64.2 million in the same period last year, attributable to TMMDM's deconsolidation and a better performance of Shipyard due to an improved mix.

Ports and Terminals revenue increased 18.2 percent in the second quarter of 2018 to $109.3 million compared to $92.5 million in the same period last year mainly due to an improvement of $20.6 million in the Maintenance and Repair segment, primarily attributable to a higher volume of operations in its principal localities, including the incorporation of ONE (merger of the three principally Japanese shipping lines) as a new client, the increase in Intermodal Terminal due to an improved mix and volumes operated, as well as the raise of incomes in API Acapulco due to an increase of attended passengers. The first 2018 six-month period recorded $223.6 million increase of 21.5 percent compared to $183.9 million reported in the same period of 2017.

Ports and Terminals operating profit in the second quarter of 2018 improved 11.2 percent to $14.0 million compared to $12.6 million in the same period of 2017 mainly due to the improvement in the Maintenance and Repair segment, partially offset by a decreased operation at Tampico Terminal and maintenance expenditures at API Acapulco. During the first six months of 2018, Ports and Terminals operating profit increased 16.5 percent to $37.9 million compared to $32.5 million during the first six months of 2017.

Warehousing Services continued its trend of improving results with revenues of $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2018, compared to an $8.3 million loss for the same period in 2017, due to the Company's cost optimization strategies and client diversification plan. In the same way, during the first six months of 2018, Warehousing Services reported a loss of $3.9 compared to $17.3 million loss in the same period for the previous year. The Company continues to develop the agricultural business segment supported by FIRA (federal government trust funds for rural development) and other financial institutions; as well as development services in other segments such as steel and fuels.
