    Six Months Ended June 30, 1993 and 1992
    (In thousands of Mexican new pesos (NP.) with purchasing power as of June 30, 1993 and thousands of U.S. dollars ($) except per share amounts).
    The records of the company are kept in Mexican new pesos (NP) and the accompanying financial statements are presented in thousands of Mexican new pesos.  The company manufactures steel drill pipe, casing, tubing and line pipe primarily for use in the petroleum industry.  The consolidated financial statements for the six-month period ended June 30, 1993 and 1992 are unaudited but in the opinion of the company's management included all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair statement of the consolidated results for such periods.  Results of operations for the six months of 1993 are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year.
    Beginning in 1984, the company adopted the accounting principles prescribed by Statement Bulletin B10 and by Circular 11-10 issued by the Mexican Institute of Public Accountants (the institute) and the Mexican National Securities Commission, respectively.  On Jan. 1, 1990, accounting rules prescribed by Bulletin "Third Document of Amendments to Bulletin B-10" issued by the Mexican Institute of Public Accountants became effective.  This bulletin requires, in periods of high inflation that all financial statements presented be expressed in Mexican new pesos with purchasing power as of the date of the latest statement of financial position presented, using the National Consumers Price Index (NCPI).  The new bulletin also requires that all adjustments to shareholders' equity be reflected in each equity account affected and not combined in one general caption as was previously required.  As a result, the 1992 amounts included in the unaudited interim consolidated financial statements and notes have been restated into constant new pesos as of June 30, 1993.  Beginning Jan. 1, 1993, a new monetary unit denominated new pesos "nuevo peso" was established.  The new peso "nuevo peso" is equivalent to one thousands pesos (P 1,000) of the ones current until Dec. 31, 1992.  The concepts and methods followed by the company for preparing the accompanying statements are described in the following notes.
    2A.  Inventories and cost of sales.
    At June 30, 1993, and 1992, inventories are stated at their replacement cost not in excess of net realizable value as of that date (see notes 3B and 10).  Cost of sales for the six months period ended June 30, 1993 and 1992 has been computed by the LIFO method.
    2B.  Property, plant and equipment.
    Property, plant and equipment is recorded at replacement cost by the method described in Notes 3C and 4B.
    2C.  Loss from holding of non-monetary assets.
    This item represents the increase in the restated value of non- monetary assets, under the rate of inflation determined based on the NCPI.
    2D.  Gain on net monetary position.
    This item represents the effect of inflation as measured by the NCPI on the company's average monetary assets and liabilities.  During the six month period ended June 30, 1993 and 1992, monetary liabilities exceeded monetary assets and, as a consequence, there was a gain on net monetary position for each of those two periods, which was allocated to integral financing cost as follows:
                                             1993         1992

    Total                                NP 51,613    NP 60,489
    2E.  Integral financing (cost) income.
    Integral financing (cost) income includes the following items:
                                             1993         1992
    Gain on net monetary position        NP 51,613    NP 60,489
    Interest and financing expenses        (50,125)     (69,908)
    Foreign exchange loss                   (1,377)     (14,185)
    Total                                NP    111    NP(23,604)
    2F.  Consolidated statements of changes in financial position.
    In accordance with the requirements established in bulletin B-12 "Statement of changes in the financial situation," this statement must disclose the changes in the financial position measured in pesos with an equivalent purchasing power.
    Bulletin B-12 identifies the generation and application of resources representing differences between beginning and ending balances of the statement of financial position, in constant pesos.  Also, bulletin B-12 requires that (1) monetary and foreign exchange gains and losses (including the equity adjustments from translation) not be treated as noncash items in the determination of resources provided by operations, (2) the reduction in long-term debt (including its current portion) due to its restatement in constant pesos be presented in the statement of changes in financial position as a resource used by financing activities, and (3) the gain or loss from monetary position be considered as a component of operating activities.  Except for the foregoing requirements of Bulletin B-12 this statement is similar to the statement of cash flow required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, and the effect of these differences on the categories of each flow required to be reported under United States accounting principles is not material.
    3A.  Principles of consolidation.
    The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Tubos de Acero de Mexico, S.A. and its eight subsidiaries (the company): Inmobiliaria Tamsa, S.A. de C.V., Siderurgica Tamsa, S.A., Inmobiliaria de la Zona Industrial de Framboyan, S.A., Inmobiliaria Paris-Madrid, S.A., Tamsider, S.A., Corporacion Tamsa, S.A., Tamtrade Ltd. and Tamtrade, S.A. de C.V.  All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
    Investments in associated companies in which the company owns more than 20 percent of the common stock are accounted for by the equity method of accounting under which the company includes in periodic income its proportionate share of the reported net results for the associated companies most recently ended fiscal year.  Investments in less than 20 percent owned companies are carried at cost.
    3B.  Inventories.
    As of June 30, 1993 and 1992, inventories are stated in conformity with the method described in Note 2A.
    In accordance with trade practices in Mexico, all accessories, spare parts and general stores have been classified as current assets, even though not all of them may be used within one year and although some of them, when used, may be capitalized as additions to, or replacement of, plant and equipment.
    3C.  Property, plant and equipment and installations and construction in progress.
    Property, plant and equipment, and installations and construction in progress are stated initially at acquisition cost.  This is updated annually as described in Note 4B.
    3D.  Employee termination compensation.
    In accordance with Mexican law, employees are entitled to a compensation payment upon requirement after 15 years of service or, without considering any period of service, upon death or dismissal. The actuarial liabilities thereto is not material.  Such compensation, which, except for the year ended Dec. 31, 1992, has not been material, is recognized in the accounts if and when paid.
    Further, in accordance with Mexican labor law, the company is contingently liable for severance pay to employees who may be dismissed without cause.
    3E.  Net earnings (losses) per common share.
    Net earnings (losses) per common share for each one of the six-month period ended June 30, 1993 and 1992 were computed by dividing consolidated net earnings by the weighted average number of shares (55,931,300 in 1993; and 54,815,000 in 1992) of common stock outstanding.
    3F.  Revenue recognition.
