The decrease sales were due to the aforementioned sales volume decline and price reductions at the corn flour business in connection with lower corn costs.

Gruma Corporation Reports Earnings and Operating Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014

Gruma Corporation reported earnings and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net sales MXN 7,030 million against MXN 6,964 million a year ago. Operating income was MXN 657 million against MXN 525 million a year ago. EBITDA was MXN 908 million against MXN 776 million a year ago. Net sales rose 1%, resulting from the positive effect of the change in the sales mix toward higher price per unit products and segments; lower allowances in connection with ongoing strategic efforts to better manage allowance trade spending; and the change in the sales mix away from corn, as sales of corn in Europe, a low price product segment, declined significantly. These positive effects were partially offset by price reductions at the corn flour business in connection with lower corn costs. The company also reported sales volume was 402 metric tons against 404 metric tons a year ago.
