Eduardo Padilla, FEMSA’s CEO, commented:

“We ended the year on a solid note, still facing important challenges but outperforming our own expectations for the fourth quarter. For some of our operations like OXXO and OXXO Gas, a new wave of COVID cases and virus variants brought more stringent operating restrictions and again hampered customer mobility, while other business units continued to have good momentum, such as our Health Division led by favorable dynamics in Chile and Mexico. For its part, Coca-Cola FEMSA managed to deliver double-digit growth in operating income in a challenging environment.

Looking back at 2020, my main takeaway without question is the remarkable effort that was made by every one of our colleagues at FEMSA, to adapt and succeed against such a complex backdrop during this strange, unique year. Our people demonstrated resilience, passion, agility, innovation, and grit. Once again, my most sincere appreciation goes out to them.

As we look ahead we see that short-term uncertainty levels remain high, but we anticipate an eventual recovery to take hold on the back of broad vaccination efforts and a pandemic that gradually cedes ground to normalcy as the year advances. We are again planning for growth across all our business units, optimistic about their long-term potential, and leveraging the strengths we all found in 2020 in ourselves and more importantly, in our organization.”
