Citi’s $550 Million Offering

February 28, 2024

Cleary Gottlieb represented the underwriters, led by Citigroup Global Markets Inc., in a registered offering by Citigroup Inc. of 550,000 depositary shares, each representing a 1/25th interest in a share of 7.2% fixed-rate reset noncumulative perpetual preferred stock, Series BB ($25,000 liquidation preference per share).

The offering priced on February 28, 2024, and will close on March 6, 2024.

Instead of the initial fixed dividend rate of 7.2% transitioning from a fixed rate to a floating rate on the first call date, the dividend payment calculation for the preferred stock will reset to a new fixed rate on May 15, 2029, 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.
