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."

Gross profit remained flat. Gross margin expanded 60 basis points, mainly driven by expansion at Coca-Cola FEMSA and

FEMSA Comercio's Proximity and Fuel Divisions, partially offset by a contraction at FEMSA Comercio's Health Division.

Income from operations decreased 3.5%. On an organic basis,1 income from operations decreased 3.8%. Consolidated operating margin decreased 20 basis points to 10.1% of total revenues, reflecting a margin contraction at FEMSA Comercio's Proximity Division driven by operating deleverage as a result of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, partially offset by a margin expansion at Coca-Cola FEMSA and FEMSA Comercio's Health and Fuel Divisions.

Income tax was Ps. 3,154 million in 4Q20.

Net consolidated income decreased 88.0% to Ps. 730 million, reflecting: i) lower income from operations; ii) a negative impact due to FEMSA's participation in Heineken results; iii) a non-cash foreign exchange loss related to FEMSA's U.S. dollar-denominated cash position as impacted by the appreciation of the Mexican peso; and iv) higher interest expense.

Net majority loss was Ps. 0.35 per FEMSA Unit2 and US$0.17 per FEMSA ADS.

Capital expenditures amounted to Ps. 6,377 million, reflecting reduced investments at most of our business units.

Total revenues decreased 2.4% in 4Q20 compared to 4Q19, reflecting a 4.3% same-store sales decrease, driven by a 16.9% decline in store traffic reflecting reduced customer mobility coupled with continued restrictions. This was partially offset by an increase of 15.1% in average customer ticket, reflecting a shift in our sales mix towards home consumption categories and SKUs in connection to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the quarter, OXXO's store base contracted by 67 units including

temporary closures,1 to reach a total of 19,566 OXXO stores as of December 31, 2020. This figure reflects the addition of 236 total net new store openings for the last twelve months.

Gross profit reached 44.6% of total revenues, reflecting growth of the services category including income from financial services.

Income from operations represented 10.5% of total revenues. Operating expenses increased 5.0% to Ps. 15,957 million, above revenues, mainly reflecting: i) operating deleverage as our largely fixed cost base continues to face lower revenues than usual; ii) our continuing initiative to strengthen our compensation structure of key in-store personnel in a tight labor market, including the gradual shift from commission-based store teams to employee-based teams; and iii) higher expenses related to IT programs and infrastructure.

1 This figure includes 93 new store openings, 80 store re-openings, 234 definitive closures and 6 temporary closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Total revenues increased 15.4% in 4Q20 compared to 4Q19, reflecting positive trends in Mexico and in our operations in Chile, which faced an undemanding comparison base, and a positive currency translation effect related to the appreciation of the Chilean peso relative to the Mexican peso. These were partially offset by the effect of the strict mobility restrictions that remain in our Colombia and Ecuador operations. During the quarter, the Health Division's store base increased by 119 units including temporary closures,1 to reach a total of 3,368 points of sale across its territories as of December 31, 2020. This figure reflects the addition of 207 net new store openings for the last twelve months across our territories. Same-store sales for drugstores increased an average of 15.3%, reflecting the revenue drivers described above. On a currency-neutral2 basis, total revenues increased 9.6% while same-store sales increased by 13.6%

Gross profit represented 30.9% of total revenues, reflecting negative sales mix effect driven by; i) an increase in the demand of lower-margin COVID-related products; and ii) higher institutional sales in our operations in Colombia. These were partially offset by improved efficiency and more effective collaboration and execution with our key supplier partners across our operations.

Income from operations amounted to 4.9% of total revenues. Operating expenses increased 9.8% to Ps. 4,510 million, below revenue growth. Positive trends were mainly driven by the Health Division's organic growth in Colombia and Mexico, reflecting increased operating leverage.

  • 1 This figure includes 128 new store openings, 16 store re-openings and 25 definitive closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of December 31, 2020, FEMSA Comercio's Fuel Division had a total of 558 OXXO GAS service stations.

Income from operations decreased 12.0%. On an organic basis,1 it decreased 14.4%. Our consolidated operating margin decreased 90 basis points to 8.4% of total revenues, reflecting margin contraction at FEMSA Comercio's Proximity and Fuel Division driven by the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their operating leverage, partially offset by a margin expansion at Coca-Cola FEMSA and FEMSA Comercio's Health Division that mainly reflected resilient consumer demand and strict cost and expense discipline across their territories.

Net consolidated income decreased 86.6% to Ps. 3,756 million, reflecting: i) lower income from operations; ii) higher taxes and other non-operating expenses reflecting the extraordinary tax payment of Ps. 8,790 million agreed with the Mexican tax authority during the second quarter; iii) impairments including for certain assets at Coca-Cola FEMSA and the closure of our Specialty's Café and Bakery operation also during the second quarter; iv) higher interest expenses; and v) a negative impact due to FEMSA's participation in Heineken's results. These were partially offset by a non-cash foreign exchange gain related to FEMSA's U.S. dollar-denominated cash position as impacted by the depreciation of the Mexican peso.

Net majority loss per FEMSA Unit2 was Ps. 0.54 (US$0.27 per ADS).

Coca-Cola FEMSA Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Results

Mexico City, February 25, 2021, Coca-Cola FEMSA, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV: KOF UBL, NYSE: KOF) ("Coca-Cola FEMSA," "KOF" or the "Company"), the largest Coca-Cola franchise bottler in the world by sales volume, announces results for the fourth quarter and the full year of 2020.

FOURTH QUARTER OPERATIONAL AND FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Consolidated volumes increased 1.4%, driven mainly by volume growth in Brazil, Central America, Argentina coupled with flat performance in Colombia. These effects were partially offset by a decline in Mexico and Uruguay.

  • Total revenues decreased 5.1%, while comparable revenues increased 1.9%. Revenue management and pricing initiatives were offset by unfavorable currency translation effects from our operating currencies in South America, mainly driven by an 18.3% translation effect from the Brazilian Real, coupled with unfavorable price-mix effects.

  • Operating income increased 13.4%, while comparable operating income increased 21.9%. Favorable PET prices, coupled with maintenance, marketing, and other operating expense savings, were partially offset by the depreciation of most of our operating currencies as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated raw material costs and unfavorable price-mix effects.

  • Majority net income increased 59.2%, driven mainly by solid operating results. The same period of 2019 included an extraordinary non-operating expense of Ps. 948 million related to our Estrella Azul dairy joint venture in Panama.

    FULL YEAR OPERATIONAL AND FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • For the full year, volumes decreased 2.5%, impacted mainly by the enforcement of lockdowns and social distancing measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic, partially offset by volume growth in Brazil and Guatemala.

  • Total revenues decreased 5.6%, while comparable revenues decreased 1.0%, impacted by unfavorable price-mix effects and currency translation headwinds, partially offset by pricing and revenue management initiatives.

  • Operating income decreased 0.7%, while comparable operating income increased 4.4%. Lower PET prices and operating expense efficiencies, coupled with our ability to generate savings across our operations, allowed us to effectively mitigate unfavorable price-mix effects, higher concentrate costs, and the depreciation of most of our operating currencies as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated raw material costs.

  • Earnings per share1 were Ps. 0.61 (Earnings per unit were Ps. 4.91 and per ADS were Ps. 49.06.).

  • Underscoring the Company's solid financial position and cash flow generation, our cash position increased to Ps. 43,497 million including the payment of the second installment of dividends during early November.

John Santa Maria, Coca-Cola FEMSA's CEO, commented:

"During 2020, in the face of the hardship brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to navigate the storm and emerge stronger.

Our full year results underscore our resiliency and capability to generate efficiencies as well as our employees' commitment to serve and satisfy the needs of our customers and consumers. Notably, in addition to these strong operating results, I am pleased that we have redesigned our distribution partnership with Heineken in Brazil. This new agreement realigns the interests of all parties and is built on a solid historical foundation that will allow us to develop a strong portfolio of leading brands to continue satisfying our clients and consumers in the country. Overall, these achievements are testament that we not only addressed the pandemic with operating excellence but also that that we continued to move aggressively on all strategic and digital fronts towards our ambition to become a true total beverage platform."

Volume increased 1.4% to 902.2 million unit cases, driven mainly by increased volume in Brazil, Guatemala, and Argentina. This increase was partially offset by volume declines in Mexico and Uruguay.

Total revenues decreased 5.1% to Ps. 49,116 million. Our revenues were impacted mainly by a negative translation effects resulting from the depreciation of most of our operating currencies in South America as compared to the Mexican Peso, coupled with an unfavorable price-mix effect. These factors were partially offset by volume growth in Brazil, Guatemala, and Argentina, coupled with pricing and revenue management initiatives across our territories. On a comparable basis, total revenues would have increased 1.9%.

Gross profit decreased 4.3% to Ps. 21,939 million, and gross margin expanded 40 basis points to 44.7%. Our cost saving initiatives, lower PET prices, and currency hedging strategies were partially offset by i) the depreciation in the average exchange rate of most of our operating currencies as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated raw material costs; (ii) unfavorable price-mix effects; and iii) higher concentrate costs in Mexico. On a comparable basis, gross profit would have increased 1.8%.

Operating income increased 13.4% to Ps. 7,229 million, and operating margin expanded 130 basis points to 14.7%. This increase was driven mainly by labor, maintenance, and marketing operating expense efficiencies across our operations. In addition, the same period of the previous year included restructuring severance payments related to our Fuel for Growth efficiency program. On a comparable basis, operating income would have increased 21.9%.

  • (1) Please refer to page 9 for our definition of "comparable" and a description of the factors affecting the comparability of our financial and operating performance.

  • (2) Operating cash flow = operating income + depreciation + amortization & other operating non-cash charges.

Comprehensive financing result recorded an expense of Ps. 1,777 million, compared to an expense of Ps. 1,507 million in the same period of 2019.

This quarter, the Company had a flat interest expense, net, as compared to the same period of 2019, as a reduction in interest expenses was offset by a reduction in interest income. The decrease in interest expenses was driven mainly by the payment of the promissory note related to the acquisition of Vonpar in 2017, coupled with the prepayment of our U.S. dollar-denominated bond due 2023, partially offset by new short-term financing incurred during the first quarter of 2020, as a preventive measure to reinforce the Company's cash position. In addition, the Company recorded a gain of Ps. 123 million in monetary position in inflationary subsidiaries as compared to a gain of Ps. 139 million during the same period of 2019. These effects were partially offset by a foreign exchange loss of Ps. 346 million, driven mainly by the appreciation of the Mexican Peso as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated cash position.

Income tax as a percentage of income before taxes was 36.3% as compared to 43.6% during the same period of the previous year. The tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2020 was driven mainly by an increase in deferred taxes, while for the same period of 2019, it was driven mainly by the effect of extraordinary non-operating expenses and impairments recognized during the quarter.

Net income attributable to equity holders of the company reached Ps. 3,177 million as compared to Ps. 1,995 million during the same period of the previous year, driven mainly by solid operating results. Additionally, during the same period of 2019, we recorded an extraordinary non-operating expense of Ps. 948 million in Estrella Azul, our former dairy joint venture in Panama. Earnings per share1 were Ps. 0.19 (Earnings per unit were Ps. 1.51, and earnings per ADS were Ps. 15.12.).

Total revenues decreased 5.6% to Ps. 183,615 million in the full year of 2020 as compared to the same period of 2019. This figure includes extraordinary other operating revenues related to an entitlement to reclaim tax payments in Brazil during the third quarter. Total revenues were impacted mainly by unfavorable price-mix and currency translation effects resulting from the depreciation of all of our operating currencies in South America into Mexican Pesos, mainly driven by a 14.5% unfavorable translation effect from the Brazilian Real. These factors were partially offset by pricing and revenue management initiatives. On a comparable basis, excluding currency translation effects, total revenues would have only decreased 1.0%.

Gross profit decreased 5.4% to Ps. 82,811 million in the full year of 2020 as compared to the same period of 2019, and gross margin expanded 10 basis points to 45.1%. A more favorable raw material environment, lower PET prices, our revenue management initiatives, and our favorable currency hedging strategies were partially offset by: i) an unfavorable price-mix effect; ii) higher concentrate costs in Brazil, related to the reduction of tax credits on concentrate purchased from the Manaus Free Trade Zone; iii) higher concentrate costs in Mexico; iv) and the depreciation in the average exchange rate of most of our operating currencies as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated raw material costs.

In addition, the same period of the previous year included restructuring severance payments related to our Fuel for Growth efficiency program.On a comparable basis, operating income would have increased 4.4%.

Comprehensive financing result recorded an expense of Ps. 6,678 million during the full year of 2020 compared to an expense of Ps. 6,071 million in the same period of 2019.

Interest expense, net, recorded an increase during the year, driven mainly by a one-time interest expense related to the prepayment of our U.S. dollar-denominated bond due 2023, as well as our successful debt refinancing initiatives performed during the first quarter. In addition, the Company incurred short-term financing, as a preventive measure to reinforce the

Company's cash position. These effects were partially offset by debt prepayments.

This increase was partially offset by a gain in monetary position in inflationary subsidiaries of Ps. 376 million. Additionally, the Company recorded a foreign exchange gain of Ps. 4 million as compared to a loss of Ps. 330 million during 2019.

Income tax as a percentage of income before taxes was 33.8% as compared to 30.9% for the previous year. This increase was driven mainly by impairments of approximately Ps. 2.4 billion recognized during the period and an increase in deferred taxes.

Volume increased 6.4% to 407.2 million unit cases, driven by sequential improvements across most of the division. Volume was strong with 7.8% growth in Brazil and 11.6% volume growth in Argentina, partially offset by a 0.9% volume decline in Uruguay and stable performance in Colombia.

Total revenues decreased 10.0% to Ps. 22,043 million. Revenues were impacted mainly by unfavorable price-mix and currency translation effects resulting from the depreciation of most of our operating currencies as compared to the Mexican Peso, mainly driven by a 14.5% unfavorable translation effect from the Brazilian Real. These effects were partially offset by volume growth in Brazil and Argentina and our revenue management initiatives. On a comparable basis, excluding currency translation effects, total revenues would have increased 6.5%.

Gross profit decreased 16.3% to Ps. 8,269 million, and gross margin contracted 280 basis points to 37.5%. This decrease was driven mainly by an unfavorable price-mix effect and the depreciation of the average exchange rate of all our operating currencies in the division as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated raw material costs. These effects were partially offset by lower PET costs and our revenue management initiatives. On a comparable basis, gross profit would have decreased 1.5%.

Operating income decreased 20.2% to Ps. 2,273 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, resulting in a margin contraction of 130 basis points to 10.3%. This decrease was driven mainly by an unfavorable price-mix effect, coupled with an operating foreign exchange loss. These factors were partially offset by operating expense efficiencies. On a comparable basis, operating income would have decreased 4.2%.

DEFINITIONS

Volume is expressed in unit cases. Unit case refers to 192 ounces of finished beverage product (24 eight-ounce servings) and, when applied to soda fountains, refers to the volume of syrup, powders, and concentrate that is required to produce 192 ounces of finished beverage product.

Transactions refers to the number of single units (e.g., a can or a bottle) sold, regardless of their size or volume or whether they are sold individually or in multipacks, except for soda fountains, which represent multiple transactions based on a standard 12 oz. serving.

Operating income is a non-GAAP financial measure computed as "gross profit - operating expenses - other operating expenses, net + operative equity method (gain) loss in associates."

Operating cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure computed as "operating income + depreciation + amortization & other operating non-cash charges."

Earnings per share are equal to "Earnings / outstanding shares." Earnings per share (EPS) for all periods are adjusted to give effect to the stock split resulting in 16,806,658,096 shares outstanding. For the convenience of the reader, as each KOF UBL Unit is comprised of 8 shares (3 Series B shares and 5 Series L shares), earnings per unit are equal to EPS multiplied by 8. Each ADS represents 10 KOF UBL Units.

COMPARABILITY

In an effort to provide our readers with a more useful representation of our company's underlying financial and operating performance, as of the first quarter 2020, we adjusted our methodology to calculate our comparable figures, no longer excluding hyperinflationary operations. Due to this change, our "comparable" term means, with respect to a year-over-year comparison, the change of a given measure excluding the effects of: (i) mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures; and (ii) translation effects resulting from exchange rate movements. In preparing this measure, management has used its best judgment, estimates, and assumptions in order to maintain comparability.
