Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) today reported net income for the second quarter 2013 of $4.2 billion, or $1.34 per diluted share, on revenues of $20.5 billion. This compared to net income of $2.9 billion, or $0.95 per diluted share, on revenues of $18.4 billion for the second quarter 2012.
CVA/DVA was a positive $477 million in the second quarter ($293 million after-tax), largely resulting from the widening of Citi’s credit spreads and the tightening of counterparty spreads, compared to a positive $219 million ($140 million after-tax) in the prior year period. Second quarter 2012 results included a loss of $424 million ($274 million after-tax) related to the sale of a 10.1% stake in Akbank T.A.S. Excluding CVA/DVA in both periods and the Akbank loss in the second quarter 2012, 4 second quarter 2013 revenues increased 8% from the prior year period to $20.0 billion and second quarter 2013 earnings per diluted share were $1.25, representing a 25% increase from prior year earnings per share of $1.00. The increase in Citi’s earnings per diluted share was driven by the higher revenues and lower net credit losses, which were partially offset by higher legal and related costs, a lower loan loss reserve release and a higher effective tax rate.
Michael Corbat, Chief Executive Officer of Citi, said, “Our businesses performed well during the quarter and these results are well-balanced through our products and geographies, especially in the emerging markets, where growth is being challenged. We also continued to make progress in several critical areas. We reduced the earnings drag caused by Citi Holdings, where we saw the largest percentage reduction of assets since 2010. We again consumed a modest amount of DTA, bringing the total utilized to about $1.3 billion for the first half of the year. We increased our already strong capital levels, reaching an estimated Basel III Tier 1 Common ratio of 10%. Generating consistent and quality earnings is a key priority and this quarter met that goal.”
