GENTERA announces that it formalized the sale of
Pagos Intermex S.A. de C.V.
Mexico City, June 30, 2020.- GENTERA, S.A.B. de C.V. ("GENTERA", "Holding" BMV: GENTERA *) announces that, today, it formalized the sale of its family remittances payment business, Pagos Intermex S.A. de C.V ("INTERMEX") to TransNetwork L.L.C. This operation is in line with what GENTERA communicated on December 31, 2019 in which the sale of this subsidiary was reported.
The sale for 100% of INTERMEX's shares was for an amount of $ 241.25 million pesos payable in different instances. This sale includes 27 branches of Banco Compartamos S.A. I.B.M. in which the highest percentage of remittances payments is generated, and the assets and team (structure) required for its proper operation and more than 2,600 correspondent agents.
During the time that INTERMEX was part of GENTERA, it increased the value offer for GENTERA's clients and brought it the capability to operate and grow the number of branches and incorporate a network of correspondents that expanded its presence throughout Mexico, and helped Banco Compartamos S.A. I.B.M. to expand its branch network and bring financial products and services with quality and warmth to its 2.6 million clients, contributing to strengthening its market position.
This operation is aligned with Gentera's strategy to focus its efforts on the financial products and services offered by the different subsidiaries that are part of the Holding Company.
GENTERA reaffirms its commitment with its clients in helping them to fulfill their dreams through adequate and convenient financial solutions; and in the current context, continuing supporting millions of families to contribute to their well-being and reactivation of economic development, thus building a long-term relationship.
The sale of Pagos Intermex does not have the purpose for disposing assets as a result of the pandemic declaration named Coronavirus (COVID-19) from the World Health Organization (WHO).
