In the first nine-months of 2018 Maritime revenues were $699.3 million, compared to $1,411.3 million reported in the same period of the previous year, mainly due to the aforementioned deconsolidation effects, as well as improved rates in the Shipyard and an increase of clients from Bulk Carriers business and the effect in Parcel Tankers due to the hire of a newer vessel maximizing time and costs.

Ports and Terminals operating profit in the third quarter of 2018 was $35.01 million compared to $1.6 million in the same period of 2017, the improvement of 33.5 million, mainly due to the performance in Port of Tuxpan as a result of the increase in gravel volumes and a higher number of car freighted in API Acapulco; partially offset by an increase of costs in the Maintenance and Repair of containers segment. During the first nine months of 2018, Ports and Terminals operating profit increased 113.9% percent to $72.9 million compared to $34.1 million during the first nine months of 2017.
