Officials at Vitro S.A.B. de C.V. of Mexico today announced the company's fourth-quarter 2011 unaudited results. Year-over-year (YoY) consolidated net sales decreased 1.5 percent, mostly affected by 10.6 percent peso depreciation, YoY (quarterly average), which offset a temporary increase in demand in glass containers and an increase in domestic flat glass sales volume, according to the company . Consolidated EBITDA increased 37.7 percent, YoY, from the positive impact of the recovery of $33 million, corresponding to the remaining amount of the company's insurance claims related to damages caused by Hurricane Alex, which more than compensated the restructuring expenses accrued on this period.


As a result of the sale of Vitro America Inc. in June 2011, and according to Mexican Financial Accounting Standards (MFRS), for a comparative purpose, current and historical figures of that company are shown as discontinued operation in every period, except where indicated otherwise, according to the report.


"With respect to Vitro's debt restructuring process, on February 7, 2012, Vitro was notified that the judge overseeing the company's concurso mercantil proceedings issued her final ruling


Net free cash flow this quarter increased by $65 million, reflecting higher EBITDA, a lower capital expenditure, as most investments were scheduled in previous quarters, and a recovery in working capital consistent with typical business seasonality.
