Citigroup Inc. ("Citigroup") announced today the applicable Reference Yield and Total Consideration for the previously announced cash tender offers (each, an "Offer" and, collectively, the "Offers") with respect to each series of Notes listed in the table below (the "Notes").
These Offers are consistent with Citigroup's liability management strategy, and reflect its ongoing efforts to enhance the efficiency of its funding and capital structure. Since 2013, Citigroup redeemed or retired U.S. $17.7 billion of securities, excluding exchanged securities, of which U.S. $5.4 billion was redeemed or retired in 2014, reducing Citigroup's overall funding costs. Citigroup will continue to consider opportunities to redeem or repurchase securities, based on several factors, including without limitation, the economic value, potential impact on Citigroup's net interest margin and borrowing costs, the overall remaining tenor of Citigroup's debt portfolio, capital impact, as well as overall market conditions.
The Offers are being made pursuant to the offer to purchase dated July 16, 2014 (as may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Offer to Purchase"), and the related letter of transmittal (as may be amended or supplemented from time to time, the "Letter of Transmittal") which set forth in more detail the terms and conditions of the Offers. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this announcement shall have the meaning given to them in the Offer to Purchase.
The Total Consideration and Tender Offer Consideration for each series of Notes were determined based on the relevant Reference Yield as of 2 p.m., New York City time, on July 30, 2014.
