Citigroup Inc. (“ Citigroup”) today announced the commencement of offers to purchase for cash (i) any and all of its notes of the series set forth in the table below under the heading “CAD Notes,” and (ii) its notes of the series set forth in the table below under the heading “U.S. Dollar Notes” up to an aggregate principal amount with respect to each series of U.S. Dollar Notes as set forth in the table below (each, a “ Maximum Series Tender Cap”) (all such notes collectively, the “ Notes”). The offer to purchase each series of Notes is referred to as an “ Offer” and all such offers are referred to collectively as the “ Offers.” The Notes had an aggregate principal amount outstanding of approximately U.S. $6.66 billion as of May 16, 2014 (based on U.S. dollar exchange rates as of that date).
These Offers, currently totaling up to approximately U.S. $2.6 billion aggregate principal amounts of the Notes, are consistent with Citigroup's liability management strategy, and reflect its ongoing efforts to enhance the efficiency of its funding and capital structure. In 2013, Citigroup redeemed U.S. $12 billion of securities 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.
