Operating margin reached 8.0%, a 2.1 percentage points improvement compared to the same period of 2013. Full year operating income was $1.68 billion pesos with a 3.9% margin.
  • Fourth quarter adjusted EBITDAR reached $2.68 billion pesos; a 28.0% increase compared to the prior year. Adjusted EBITDAR margin amounted to 23.1%, 3.5 percentage points higher than in 4Q of 2013. In 2014, adjusted EBITDAR reached $8.07 billion pesos with an 18.8% margin.
