Fitch Publishes Mexican Retail Dashboard

May 28, 2014



MONTERREY, Mexico--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Link to Fitch Ratings' Report: Mexican Retail Dashboard

http://www.fitchratings.com/creditdesk/reports/report_frame.cfm?rpt_id=749227

Fitch Ratings has published the new Mexican Retail Dashboard.

The publication explores key themes affecting issuer credit profiles for the Mexican Retail sector. In general, Mexican retailers should maintain relatively stable credit metrics despite comparatively weak Same Store Sales over the last few quarters. Key issues to watch in the following months are the expected improvement in SSS over the next few quarters, headwinds faced by supermarkets due to the fiscal reforms carried out last year, and increasing sales by department stores, supported by credit sales and increased outlet penetration.

The report 'Mexican Retail Dashboard' is available at www.fitchratings.com or by clicking the link above.

Additional information is available at 'www.fitchratings.com'.
