FEMSA's report showcasing a 11.3% year-on-year growth in total consolidated revenues indicates a robust performance, particularly considering the global economic uncertainties. The 15.1% revenue increase in Proximity Americas and the 11.2% surge in Coca-Cola FEMSA's revenues are signs of effective market strategies and resilience in consumer demand. The growth in these sectors seems to be a result of a balanced mix of same-store sales growth, expansion and cost controls. Investors should note the impressive 175% increase in income from operations in Proximity Europe, despite the absence of same-store sales data, suggesting significant operational improvements or one-off gains that merit further inquiry. The concern, however, lies within the Health division, where revenues declined by 2.3% and income from operations plummeted by 40%. This could indicate structural issues within the market or execution challenges. The strategic adjustments mentioned by the CEO will be critical to monitor in the coming quarters. The approval of increased dividends and a more aggressive buyback policy could signal confidence from management in FEMSA's financial stability and future outlook, potentially leading to a positive investor sentiment.

The robust user growth in FEMSA's digital platforms, with Spin by OXXO reaching 7.4 million active users and Spin Premia boasting 21.7 million active loyalty users, indicates a successful digital engagement strategy. The average tender of 35.1% in the loyalty program is particularly notable for potential customer retention and long-term revenue streams. These numbers suggest that FEMSA’s investment in digital infrastructure is paying dividends in customer engagement and market penetration. Retail investors should recognize the value of such digital initiatives as they have the potential to drive sustainable growth and create a moat against competitors. In contrast to the positive digital growth, the Health segment presents a point of caution. The operational difficulties reflected in the report could be symptomatic of deeper market shifts, such as regulatory changes or increased competition in Mexico and Colombia. It is important for investors to keep an eye on how FEMSA navigates these challenges in a sector that has significant growth potential but is also fraught with complexity.

José Antonio Fernandez Carbajal, FEMSA’s Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“Our first quarter results showed we are carrying the positive momentum from last year, into 2024. The majority of our operations, including the two that contribute most to our results, delivered excellent numbers across the board. Proximity achieved double-digit growth in top-line and operating income, driven by strong and balanced same-store sales growth, healthy new-store expansion, and good expense control. For its part, Coca-Cola FEMSA delivered a potent set of numbers across its own income statement, driven by strong volume and revenue growth in its major markets.

Digital@FEMSA continued to add users and advance towards its ecosystem objectives, and we also saw good progress at Valora and OXXO Gas. The one operation that is facing strong headwinds is Health, where we continue to navigate a tough competitive environment in Mexico, and a rapidly evolving institutional environment in Colombia. Our team is well advanced in adjusting the strategy to overcome those challenges, and we are confident the trends will improve and eventually converge with the positive dynamics we see elsewhere in our Company.

On the capital allocation front, during the quarter our shareholders approved several measures linked to our capital allocation framework, such as raising our ordinary dividend, approving a special dividend for this year, and doubling our buyback capacity. We made progress on the execution of this capital return strategy, and we began to move toward our stated leverage objective.

In short, we hit the ground running in 2024 and we are hard at work advancing on every element of our strategy, as we continue to pursue and capture the significant opportunities before us. I am grateful to the entire FEMSA team for their extraordinary dedication.”
