Citi’s $1.25 Billion Offering
February 28, 2023
Cleary Gottlieb represented the underwriters, led by Citigroup Global Markets Inc., in a registered offering of 1.25 million depositary shares, each representing a 1/25th interest in a share of 7.375% fixed-rate reset noncumulative perpetual preferred stock, Series Z ($25,000 liquidation preference per share).
The offering priced on February 28, 2023, and will close on March 7, 2023.
Instead of the initial fixed dividend rate of 7.375% transitioning from a fixed rate to a floating rate on the May 15, 2028 first call date, the dividend payment calculation for the preferred stock will reset to a new fixed rate on May 15, 2028, and every five years after that date. The new fixed rate will be calculated based on the five-year treasury rate three days prior to each reset date.
