of a claim from the Mexican tax authorities, and a sequential increase in non-controlling interest
results in the second quarter 2013.
 Capital expenditures of USD289.6 million in the second quarter 2013, up from USD218.1 million in the first quarter 2013. Tenigal is concluding the construction of its facility in Monterrey,

Operating income in the second quarter 2013 was USD276.0 million, relatively stable compared to that of the first quarter 2013 as a result of relatively stable net sales and operating cost6. Ternium’s net income in the second quarter 2013 was USD134.4 million, a USD17.0 million lower result compared to
net income in the first quarter 2013 mainly due to a USD13.7 million non-recurring income tax charge in the second quarter 2013 in connection with the settlement of a claim from the Mexican tax authorities  related to fiscal year 2004 and a higher effective tax rate due to higher net income from Siderar.
Operating income in the second quarter 2013 was USD17.0 million higher than in the second quarter 2012, mainly as a result of higher iron ore sales to third parties. Net income in the second quarter 2013 was USD19.0 million higher year-over-year mainly due to the above mentioned increase in operating income and better results from non-consolidated companies, partially offset by a higher income tax
