This increase mainly reflected a favorable change of 1,475.2 million pesos (76.7 million dollars) in the gain or loss due to exchange rate fluctuation as a result of the appreciation of the Mexican peso and a decrease of 101.5 million pesos (5 , 8 million dollars) in other expenses.

Net sales in the first quarter increased 2% compared to the same period in 2016, reaching 22,177.1 million pesos (1,154.4 million dollars).
