The redemption date for the Redeemed ETRUPS® is March 28, 2022. The cash redemption price payable for each Redeemed ETRUPS® on the redemption date will equal 100% of the liquidation amount or £1,000, plus approximately £2.77058219 accumulated and unpaid distributions to the redemption date.
The redemption announced today is consistent with Citigroup's liability management strategy and reflects its ongoing efforts to enhance the efficiency of its funding and capital structure. Citigroup will continue to consider opportunities to redeem or repurchase securities, based on several factors, including without limitation, the economic value, regulatory changes, 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 Redeemed ETRUPS® are being redeemed, along with the common securities issued by Citigroup Capital XVIII (the "Capital Trust") and held by Citigroup, as a result of the concurrent redemption in whole by Citigroup of the junior subordinated debt securities held by the Capital Trust which underlie the Redeemed ETRUPS®.
Beginning on the redemption date, the Redeemed ETRUPS® will no longer be considered outstanding and distributions will no longer accrue on such securities.
The Bank of New York Mellon is the paying agent for the Redeemed ETRUPS®. The paying agent's address is The Bank of New York Mellon, 240 Greenwich Street, 7th Floor – East, New York, NY 10013.
