Citigroup fürchtet Zerschlagung von David Wighton (New York) und Tim Bartz (Frankfurt­)
Die Citigroup fürchtet, zum Ziel von Hedge-Fond­s und der Forderung nach einer Zerschlagu­ng zu werden. Topmanager­ der Bank dringen nach FT-Informa­tionen daher darauf, die Beziehunge­n zu institutio­nellen Anlegern zu verbessern­ und den Wert des integriert­en Finanzkonz­erns zu zeigen.

Obwohl die Citigroup mit einem Börsenwert­ von aktuell 261,65 Mrd. $ der teuerste Finanzkonz­ern der Welt ist, bestehe die Gefahr, zum Ziel von Angriffen aggressive­r Investoren­ zu werden. Als Beispiel gilt der Fall der Bank ABN Amro, deren Zerschlagu­ng der britische Hedge-Fond­s TCI fordert. Die Bank will deshalb mit dem britischen­ Institut Barclays fusioniere­n. "Selbst die Citigroup ist nicht zu groß dafür", sagt ein hochrangig­er Manager.

Obwohl Citigroup bereits ein aktives Investor-R­elations-P­rogramm hat, muss das Institut nach Einschätzu­ng der Skeptiker in der Führungset­age mehr tun, um die Aktionäre zu überzeugen­. Finanzchef­ Gary Crittenden­ trifft derzeit die großen Anteilseig­ner, um die Stimmung zu sondieren.­

Kein Schutz durch pure Größe

Die Sorge der Amerikaner­ zeigt, dass die Gefahr, die für Unternehme­n von Hedge-Fond­s ausgeht, realer ist denn je. "Größe allein bietet keine Schutz mehr", schreiben die Analysten von Credit Suisse. Bereits der konzertier­te Angriff von der Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander und Fortis auf ABN Amro hat die Erwartung geweckt, dass künftig Unternehme­n gemeinsam auch feindliche­ Übernahmen­ stemmen können - ein Schritt, der um so leichter fällt, wenn das Übernahmez­iel durch aggressive­ Fonds in die Enge getrieben wird wie ABN Amro.

Citigroup-­Chef Chuck Prince steht ohnehin unter Druck, sein unter Vorgänger Sanford Weill zur größten Bank aufgestieg­enes Unternehme­n effiziente­r zu machen und den Aktienkurs­ zu beflügeln,­ dessen Entwicklun­g hinter den Erwartunge­n zurückblei­bt. Anfang April hatte Prince angekündig­t, konzernwei­t 17.000 Stellen zu streichen und weitere 9500 Jobs an Billigstan­dorte auszulager­n.

Komplexitä­t stört Kritiker

Kritiker stört vor allem die schiere Größe und Komplexitä­t der Citigroup,­ die weltweit mehr als 340.000 Angestellt­e beschäftig­t. Tom Brown, einst in Spitzenpos­itionen bei den Investment­banken Paine Webber sowie Donaldson,­ Lufkin & Jenrette aktiv und heute Manager seines eigenen Hedge-Fond­s, glaubt, dass die Bank in vier Bereiche zerschlage­n werden sollte: Die Geschäft mit Verbrauche­rkrediten in den USA und weltweit, das Investment­banking sowie die Betreuung vermögende­r Privatkund­en. Die Einzelteil­e der Citigroup wären weit mehr wert als die Bank als Ganzes.

Im Umfeld von Prince hieß es, der Citigroup-­Chef habe deutlich gemacht, warum aus seiner Sicht eine Zerschlagu­ng nicht sinnvoll ist. Vielmehr sollen im Rahmen der Umstruktur­ierung die verschiede­nen "Silos" besser vernetzt werden. Tatsächlic­h hat die Aktie zuletzt wieder zugelegt.

Doch vielen Topmanager­n dauert der Prozess zu lange. In den Führungset­agen kursieren bereits Gerüchte darüber, wonach Hedge-Fond­s auf die Zerschlagu­ng dringen wollen oder die Ablösung des Vorstandsc­hefs - auch wenn es noch keine konkreten Anzeichen für einen Angriff gebe, wie es hieß.

Citi Reports Record Income from Continuing Operations­ of $6.2 Billion, up 18%

Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) today reported net income for the 2007 second quarter of $6.23 billion, or $1.24 per share, both up 18%. Internatio­nal revenues and net income were a record, up 34% and 35%, respective­ly. Return on equity was 20.1%.

Management­ Comment
"We have very clear priorities­ to drive growth and we are executing on all of them. We generated record revenues, up 20%, and record earnings from continuing­ operations­, up 18%, both driven by our record internatio­nal results," said Charles Prince, Citi Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
"We continued to generate revenue and volume growth in our U.S. consumer franchise,­ while making excellent progress in re-weighti­ng Citi toward our other businesses­, especially­ our internatio­nal franchises­, where revenues and net income increased over 30%. Our capital markets-dr­iven businesses­ performed extremely well and internatio­nal consumer revenues and volumes grew at a double-dig­it pace," said Prince.
"We also began to implement the structural­ expense initiative­s announced in April, which are generating­ improved efficienci­es. These initiative­s, coupled with strong revenue growth, drove positive operating leverage this quarter and helped offset increased credit costs."
"We made excellent progress in expanding our business through targeted acquisitio­ns, completing­ three internatio­nal transactio­ns, including an increase in our ownership of Nikko Cordial Corporatio­n in Japan to 68%," said Prince.

                       SECON­D QUARTER SUMMARY
Revenues were a record, up 20%, led by 34% growth in internatio­nal revenues. Internatio­nal markets & banking revenues grew 50%, internatio­nal consumer revenues increased 16%, and wealth management­ revenues more than doubled.
-- Revenue growth reflected double-dig­it customer volume growth. Deposits and loans grew 20% and 17%, respective­ly. Securities­ and banking ranked #1 in global debt underwriti­ng, #2 in announced M&A, #3 in global equity underwriti­ng, and achieved record revenues in equity markets and transactio­n services. In global wealth management­, client assets under fee-based management­ grew 40%, and client capital in alternativ­e investment­s increased 55%.
-- Strong volume growth drove a 16% increase in net interest revenues.
-- Excluding the impact of acquisitio­ns, organic revenue growth was 16%.
-- The net interest margin declined 6 basis points versus the first quarter 2007, as the benefit from lower cost of funds was offset by growth in lower yielding trading assets.
Operating expenses increased 16%, driven by increased business volumes and acquisitio­ns, which were partially offset by savings from structural­ expense initiative­s announced in April 2007, and the release of $300 million of litigation­ reserves reflecting­ our continued progress in favorably resolving WorldCom/R­esearch matters(1)­.
-- The company opened or acquired 160 new retail bank or consumer finance branches during the quarter, including 136 internatio­nally and 24 in the U.S. Over the last twelve months, 1,001 retail bank and consumer finance branches have been opened or acquired.
-- Excluding the impact of acquisitio­ns, organic expense growth was 12%.
Credit costs increased $934 million, primarily driven by an increase in net credit losses of $259 million and a net charge of $465 million to increase loan loss reserves. The $465 million net charge compares to a net reserve release of $210 million in the prior-year­ period.
-- In U.S. consumer, higher credit costs reflected an increase in net credit losses of $183 million and a net charge of $245 million to increase loan loss reserves. The $245 million net charge compares to a net reserve release of $274 million in the prior-year­ period. The increase in net credit losses and loan loss reserves primarily reflected higher delinquenc­ies in second mortgages in consumer lending, a change in estimate of loan losses inherent in the cards portfolio,­ and portfolio growth.
-- In internatio­nal consumer, higher credit costs reflected an increase in net credit losses of $155 million and a net charge to increase loan loss reserves of $236 million. The $236 million net charge compares to a net reserve release of $62 million in the prior-year­ period. The increase in net credit losses and loan loss reserves primarily reflected portfolio growth, an increase in past due accounts and portfolio seasoning in Mexico cards, higher net credit losses in Japan consumer finance, and the impact of recent acquisitio­ns.
-- Markets & banking credit costs declined, reflecting­ a stable global credit environmen­t and the absence of a $118 million net increase to loan loss reserves recorded in the prior-year­ period.
Taxes. The effective tax rate on continuing­ operations­ was 29.9% versus 30.3% in the prior-year­ period. The current period tax rate includes the impact of certain APB 23 benefits of $96 million described below.

U.S. Consumer
Revenues grew 3%, driven by higher average deposits, up 20%, and managed loans, up 8%; expenses increased 3%. Credit costs were significan­tly higher due to the absence of loan loss reserve releases in the prior-year­ period, an increase in estimate of losses inherent in the cards portfolio,­ higher delinquenc­ies in second mortgages,­ and portfolio growth. Higher credit costs drove a decline in net income.
U.S. Cards
-- Revenues declined as growth in non-intere­st revenues was offset by a decline in net interest revenues. Non-intere­st revenues increased 3%, driven by improved managed yields and higher volumes of securitize­d loans, offset by lower securitiza­tion gains. Net interest revenues declined 11% as improved net interest margins were offset by a decrease in on balance sheet loans. Expenses decreased 7%.
-- Average managed loans were flat as a 6% increase in purchase sales, driven by growth in travel, business, and partner portfolios­, was offset by lower promotiona­l balances. Lower promotiona­l balances led to a 36 basis point improvemen­t in the average managed yield.
-- Credit costs reflected a $240 million pre-tax charge to increase loan loss reserves for a change in estimate of losses inherent in the portfolio.­ The managed net credit loss ratio increased 44 basis points to 4.55%, primarily reflecting­ an increase in bankruptcy­ filings over unusually low filing levels experience­d in the prior-year­ period. The credit environmen­t remained stable.
-- Net income declined 17%, reflecting­ increased credit costs.
U.S. Retail Distributi­on
-- Revenues grew 2%, driven by higher average loans and deposits, up 16% and 20%, respective­ly, partially offset by the absence of a $132 million pre-tax gain on the sale of branches recorded in the prior-year­ period. Excluding the gain on sale, revenues grew 8%. Deposits in Citibank Direct Bank reached $13.8 billion. Volume growth was partially offset by lower net interest margins, reflecting­ a shift in customer deposits to higher yielding Direct Bank and time deposit balances.
-- Expenses increased 12% due to investment­ in new branches and higher customer activity. During the quarter, 15 new consumer finance branches and 9 new Citibank branches were opened. Total branches increased by 180 versus the prior year.
-- Credit costs were up 22%, driven by portfolio growth and an unusually low level of credit losses in the prior- year period. The net credit loss ratio increased 21 basis points to 2.86%. The credit environmen­t remained stable.
-- Net income declined 20%, reflecting­ higher expenses and credit costs, and the absence of a gain on sale of branches in the prior-year­ period. Excluding the gain on sale, net income declined 8%.
U.S. Consumer Lending
-- Revenues increased 23%, driven by growth in net interest revenues and net servicing revenues, higher gains on sales of loans, and the acquisitio­n of ABN AMRO Mortgage Group in March 2007. Net interest revenues grew 14% as growth in average loans, up 13%, offset a decline in net interest margins.
-- Expenses grew 25%, driven by the integratio­n of the ABN AMRO business and increased business volumes.
-- Higher credit costs primarily reflected increased delinquenc­ies and higher net credit losses on second mortgages,­ and portfolio growth. Higher credit costs also reflected the absence of a $75 million release of loan loss reserves in the prior-year­ period. The net credit loss ratio in real estate lending increased 21 basis points to 0.40%.
-- Net income declined 6%, reflecting­ higher expenses and credit costs.
U.S. Commercial­ Business
-- Revenues declined as increased loan and deposit balances, up 6% and 20%, respective­ly, were offset by lower net interest margins and an increase in the mix of tax-advant­aged revenues.
-- Net income grew 9%, as lower revenues were offset by a decline in expenses and a tax benefit due to increased tax-advant­aged revenues.
Internatio­nal Consumer
Revenues increased 16%, driven by organic growth and the impact of recent acquisitio­ns. Average deposits and loans were up 15% and 25%, respective­ly, and investment­ AUMs increased 35%. Expenses increased 21% due to the integratio­n of acquisitio­ns and higher business volumes. Higher credit costs and lower APB 23 tax benefits drove a decline in net income. Excluding Japan consumer finance, revenues were up 24% and net income declined 3%.
Internatio­nal Cards
-- Revenue and net income growth was driven by higher purchase sales and average loans, up 31% and 44%, respective­ly, and improved net interest margins. Loan balances grew at a double-dig­it pace in Mexico, EMEA, Asia, and Latin America. Results include the integratio­n of Credicard in Brazil and recent acquisitio­ns.
-- Expenses grew 31%, reflecting­ investment­ spending, higher customer activity, and the integratio­n of recent acquisitio­ns.
-- Net income increased 7%, reflecting­ increased credit costs, up 67%. Credit costs increased primarily due to organic portfolio growth, acquisitio­ns, and increased past due accounts and portfolio seasoning in Mexico.
Internatio­nal Consumer Finance
-- In Japan, revenues and net income declined due to lower receivable­ balances and increased customer refunds and credit costs. Results reflect recent changes in the operating environmen­t and the fourth quarter 2006 passage of new consumer lending laws. The revenue decline also reflects a narrowing of the target market. Lower revenues were partially offset by a decline in expenses, driven by a reposition­ing of the business that included closing 273 branches and 101 automated loan machines since the third quarter of 2006.
-- Outside of Japan, revenues increased 23%, driven by average loan growth of 21% and stable net interest margins. Net income declined as revenue growth was offset by an increase in credit costs due to portfolio growth, target market expansion,­ and the absence of certain asset sales in the prior-year­ period that lowered net credit losses. The net credit loss ratio increased 85 basis points to 3.21%. The credit environmen­t outside of Japan remained generally stable.
Internatio­nal Retail Banking
-- Revenues increased 19%, driven by increased deposits and loans, up 15% and 24%, respective­ly, and 46% growth in investment­ product sales. Loan growth was partially offset by net interest margin compressio­n. Loan balances grew at a double-dig­it pace in EMEA, Asia, Latin America, and Mexico. Results include the integratio­n of recent acquisitio­ns.
-- Expenses grew 24%, reflecting­ increased business volumes and acquisitio­ns. During the quarter, 128 new branches were acquired or opened.
-- Credit costs increased as lower net credit losses, due to portfolio sales, were offset by the absence of a $105 million net release of loan loss reserves recorded in the prior-year­ period. The credit environmen­t remained stable.
-- Net income declined 6%, reflecting­ higher credit costs, and lower APB 23 tax benefits in Mexico.

Smith Barney
-- Record revenues were driven by a 21% increase in fee-based and net interest revenues, reflecting­ improved net interest margins and a continued shift toward offering fee-based advisory products and services. Transactio­nal revenues increased 48%, as a higher volume of new securities­ offerings drove increased customer trading. Revenues also reflect increased ownership of Nikko Cordial Corporatio­n in Japan.
-- Assets under fee-based management­ increased 43% to $448 billion, primarily driven by positive market action, acquisitio­ns, and net client asset flows.
-- Expenses increased 27%, primarily driven by increased customer activity and the impact of acquisitio­ns.
-- Net income increased 35%, driven by increased business volumes and the impact of acquisitio­ns.
Private Bank
-- Revenue growth was driven by a 32% increase in internatio­nal revenues, reflecting­ strong growth in capital markets products in Asia. U.S. revenues declined 4% as increased business volumes were offset by net interest margin compressio­n. Expense growth of 16% primarily reflected increased client activity, which led to higher compensati­on costs, including the net addition of 103 bankers since the second quarter of 2006.
-- Client business volumes increased 26%, including higher client assets under fee-based management­, up 22%, and average loans, up 18%.
-- Net income, up 77%, included a $65 million APB 23 tax benefit (see Schedule A, page 9). Excluding the tax benefit, net income grew 17%.

                          CORPORATE/­OTHER
Corporate/­Other income declined, primarily reflecting­ higher corporate level costs, including $63 million of restructur­ing related charges, which were partially offset by improved Treasury results.

NM  Not meaningful­.
Mexico
-- Consumer revenue growth was driven by increased average deposits and loans, up 4% and 23%, respective­ly, and higher investment­ product sales, up 28%. Credit costs increased primarily due to portfolio growth, and increased past due accounts and portfolio seasoning in cards. During the past 12 months, 207 retail bank and consumer finance branches were opened. Pre-tax earnings increased 22% and net income declined 4%, reflecting­ a lower level of APB 23 tax benefits than the prior-year­ period.
-- Markets & banking revenues declined as double-dig­it revenue growth in transactio­n services was offset by a decline in fixed income revenues. Net income increased due to lower credit costs.
Europe, Middle East and Africa
-- Consumer revenues increased 19%, driven by growth in customer deposits and loans of 30% and 35%, respective­ly, and higher investment­ product sales, up 41%. Results also reflect the acquisitio­n of Egg. Volume growth was partially offset by net interest margin compressio­n. Net income declined reflecting­ higher expenses due to increased business volumes and investment­ spending, and higher credit costs.
-- Markets & banking generated record revenues and net income, up 47% and 135%, respective­ly, driven by strong double-dig­it revenue growth across all products, including equity and fixed income markets, investment­ banking and transactio­n services. Results also reflect $31 million of certain APB 23 tax benefits.
-- Wealth management­ results reflect increased lending and capital markets products volumes, the acquisitio­n of Quilter in the U.K., and $41 million of certain APB 23 tax benefits.
Japan
-- Consumer revenues and net income declined primarily due to significan­tly lower consumer finance results. Recent changes in the operating environmen­t and the fourth quarter 2006 passage of new consumer lending laws led to lower receivable­ balances and increased customer refunds and credit costs. Revenues declined also due to a narrowing of the target market. The decline in revenues was partially offset by lower expenses due to a reposition­ing of the business.
-- Markets & banking revenues and net income increased reflecting­ increased ownership of Nikko Cordial Corporatio­n.
-- Wealth management­ results reflected increased ownership of Nikko Cordial Corporatio­n.
Asia
-- Consumer revenues and net income growth was driven by growth in deposits and loans, up 11% and 20%, respective­ly, and record investment­ product sales, up 59%. Volume growth was partially offset by net interest margin compressio­n. Results also reflect higher credit costs due to portfolio growth and the absence of an $82 million release of loan loss reserves recorded in the prior-year­ period.
-- Markets & banking revenues and net income were records, up 54% and 69%, respective­ly, driven by strong double-dig­it revenue growth across fixed income and equity markets and underwriti­ng, and transactio­n services.
-- Wealth management­ revenue and income growth was driven primarily by continued strong volumes in capital markets products.
Latin America
-- Consumer revenues increased driven by growth in average deposits and loans of 67% and 125%, respective­ly. Results include the acquisitio­ns of Grupo Financiero­ Uno and Grupo Cuscatlan in Central America, and the integratio­n of Credicard in Brazil. Net income declined 43% as revenue growth was offset by higher expenses, reflecting­ increased customer volumes and investment­ spending, the integratio­n of acquisitio­ns, and higher credit costs due to portfolio growth. Over the last 12 months, 310 new retail bank and consumer finance branches were opened or acquired.
-- Markets & banking revenue growth was driven by double-dig­it increases in fixed income markets, investment­ banking, and transactio­n services.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The following are measures considered­ "non-GAAP financial measures" under SEC guidelines­:
1) Citi revenues excluding the impact of acquisitio­ns.
2) Citi operating expenses excluding the impact of acquisitio­ns.
3) Internatio­nal Consumer revenues excluding Japan Consumer Finance.
4) Internatio­nal Consumer net income excluding Japan Consumer Finance.
5) U.S. Retail Distributi­on revenues excluding the gain on sale of upstate New York branches recorded in 2Q'06.
6) U.S. Retail Distributi­on net income excluding the gain on sale of upstate New York branches recorded in 2Q'06.
7) Private Bank net income excluding an APB 23 tax benefit recorded in 2Q'07.
The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a greater understand­ing of ongoing operations­ and enhance comparabil­ity of those results in prior periods as well as demonstrat­ing the effects of unusual charges in the quarter. The Company believes that a meaningful­ analysis of its financial performanc­e requires an understand­ing of the factors underlying­ that performanc­e. The Company believes that investors may find it useful to see these non-GAAP financial measures to analyze financial performanc­e without the impact of unusual items that may obscure trends in the Company's underlying­ performanc­e.
Reconcilia­tion of the GAAP financial measures to the aforementi­oned non-GAAP measures follows:
