08:05 EDTCCitigroup reports Q2 Citi Holdings assets down 15% to $111B
Citi Holdings revenues in Q2 increased 33% versus the prior year period to $1.5B. Revenues in the second quarter 2014 included CVA/DVA of negative $1M compared to positive $15M in the prior year period. Excluding CVA/DVA, Citi Holdings revenues increased 35% to $1.5B primarily driven by the absence of repurchase reserve builds for representation and warranty claims in the current quarter, a higher level of gains on asset sales compared to the prior year and lower funding costs. As of the end of the quarter, total Citi Holdings assets were $111B, 15% below the prior year period, and represented approximately 6% of total Citigroup assets.
08:03 EDTCCitigroup reports Q2 Citicorp revenue $17.88B
Reports Q2 Citicorp revenues of $17.9B declined 8% from the prior year period. CVA/DVA, reported within ICG, was negative $32M in Q2, or negative $20M after-tax, compared to positive $462M, or $284M after-tax, in the prior year period. Excluding CVA/DVA, revenues were down 5% from Q213, reflecting declines in both GCB and ICG revenues of 3% and 7%, respectively. GCB revenues of $9.4B declined 3% from the prior year period, as lower U.S. mortgage refinancing activity, regulatory changes, repositioning actions in certain markets and the continued impact of spread compression globally more than offset the impact of the Best Buy portfolio acquisition and ongoing volume growth in most international businesses. ICG revenues declined 11% from the prior year period to $8.5B. Excluding the impact of CVA/DVA, revenues were $8.5B, 7% lower than the prior year period, primarily reflecting a decline in Fixed Income Markets and Equity Markets revenues, partially offset by higher Investment Banking revenues.

07:01 EDTCCitigroup to settle DOJ, FDIC claims for $7B
Citigroup announced that it has reached an agreement to settle the ongoing investigation of the Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities Working Group, part of the Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force. Today’s agreement resolves actual and potential civil claims by the U.S. Department of Justice, several state attorneys general and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation relating to RMBS and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) issued, structured or underwritten by Citi between 2003 and 2008. Under the terms of the settlement, Citigroup will pay a total of $4.5B in cash and provide $2.5B in consumer relief. The cash portion consists of a $4 billion civil monetary payment to the DOJ and $500M in compensatory payments to the State AGs and the FDIC. The consumer relief will be in the form of financing provided for the construction and preservation of affordable multifamily rental housing, principal reduction and forbearance for residential loans, as well as other direct consumer benefits from various relief programs. Citigroup has agreed to provide the consumer relief by the end of 2018. Michael Corbat, CEO of Citigroup, said, “The comprehensive settlement announced today with the U.S. Department of Justice, state attorneys general, and the FDIC resolves all pending civil investigations related to our legacy RMBS and CDO underwriting, structuring and issuance activities. We also have now resolved substantially all of our legacy RMBS and CDO litigation. We believe that this settlement is in the best interests of our shareholders, and allows us to move forward and to focus on the future, not the past.”
