In August 2005, Citigroup merged its two intermediate bank holding companies, Citigroup Holdings Company and Citicorp, into Citigroup Inc. Coincident with this merger, Citigroup assumed all existing indebtedness and outstanding guarantees of Citicorp.
During the 2005 second quarter, Citigroup consolidated its capital markets funding activities into two legal entities: (i) Citigroup Inc., which issues long-term debt, medium-term notes, trust preferred securities, and preferred and common stock, and (ii) Citigroup Funding Inc. (CFI), a first-tier subsidiary of Citigroup, which issues commercial paper, medium-term notes and structured equity-linked and credit-linked notes, all of which are guaranteed by Citigroup.
As part of the funding consolidation, Citigroup also guaranteed and continues to guarantee various debt obligations of Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc. (CGMHI) as well as all of the outstanding debt obligations under CGMHI's publicly-issued securities.
Citicorp and CGMHI no longer file periodic reports with the SEC and continue to be rated on the basis of a guarantee of their financial obligations from Citigroup.
