FIRST QUARTER 2012FORM 10-Q
Citigroup's history dates back to the founding of Citibank in 1812. Citigroup's original corporate predecessor was incorporated in 1988 under the laws of the State of Delaware. Following a series of transactions over a number of years, Citigroup Inc. was formed in 1998 upon the merger of Citicorp and Travelers Group Inc.
Citigroup is a global diversified financial services holding company whose businesses provide consumers, corporations, governments and institutions with a broad range of financial products and services. Citi has approximately 200 million customer accounts and does business in more than 160 countries and jurisdictions.
Citigroup currently operates, for management reporting purposes, via two primary business segments: Citicorp, consisting of Citi's Global Consumer Banking businesses and Institutional Clients Group; and Citi Holdings, consisting of Brokerage and Asset Management, Local Consumer Lending and Special Asset Pool. For a further description of the business segments and the products and services they provide, see "Citigroup Segments" below, "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and Note 3 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
Throughout this report, "Citigroup," "Citi" and "the Company" refer to Citigroup Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries.

The following are the four regions in which Citigroup operates. The regional results are fully reflected in the segment results above.
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
FIRST QUARTER OF 2012 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Citigroup reported first quarter of 2012 net income of $2.9 billion, or $0.95 per diluted share. Citi's reported net income declined by 2%, or $68 million, from the first quarter of 2011. Results for the first quarter of 2012 included a net negative credit valuation adjustment (CVA) on derivatives (excluding monolines), net of hedges, and debt valuation adjustment (DVA) on Citi's fair value option debt of $1.3 billion, compared to negative $256 million in the first quarter of 2011, as Citi's credit spreads tightened during the quarter. Results for the first quarter of 2012 also included a net pretax gain of $477 million from minority investments, which included pretax gains of $1.1 billion and $542 million on the sale of Citi's remaining stake in the Housing Development Finance Corporation Ltd. (HDFC) and its stake in Shanghai Pudong Development Bank (SPDB), respectively, partially offset by the pretax impairment charge relating to Akbank T.A.S. (Akbank) of $1.2 billion. Excluding CVA/DVA and the net gain on minority investments, Citi earned $3.4 billion in the first quarter of 2012, or $1.11 per diluted share, compared to $1.04 per diluted share (excluding CVA/DVA) in the prior-year period. The year-over-year increase in earnings per share, excluding CVA/DVA and the net gain from minority investments, primarily reflected higher revenues, a decline in credit costs and a lower effective tax rate as compared to the prior-year period.
Citi's revenues, net of interest expense, were $19.4 billion, down 2% versus the prior-year period. Excluding CVA/DVA and the net gain on minority investments, revenues were $20.2 billion, up $235 million, or 1%, from the first quarter of 2011 (excluding CVA/DVA) as growth in Citicorp's three businesses (Global Consumer Banking (GCB), Securities and Banking and Transaction Services) exceeded the continued revenue declines in Citi Holdings. Net interest revenues of $11.9 billion were 1% lower than the prior-year period, largely due to continued declining loan balances and lower interest-earning assets (particularly in the Special Asset Pool) in Citi Holdings. Non-interest revenues were $7.5 billion, down 2% from the prior-year period, principally due to the higher negative CVA/DVA versus the prior-year period, partially offset by the net gain on minority investments. Excluding CVA/DVA and the net gain on minority investments, non-interest revenues were $8.3 billion, a 5% increase compared to the first quarter 2011 (excluding CVA/DVA), as growth in Citicorp outpaced a decline in Citi Holdings.
Citigroup expenses were essentially flat versus the prior-year period at $12.3 billion. Both periods included a similar combined level of legal and related costs and repositioning charges of approximately $600 million. Excluding these items, as well as the impact of foreign exchange translation (as used throughout this Form 10-Q, FX translation) (approximately $100 million in the first quarter of 2012), operating expenses grew less than 1% versus the prior-year period. Investment spending was $0.4 billion higher than in the first quarter of 2011 and was more than offset by approximately $0.6 billion in efficiency savings year-over-year.
Citicorp's expenses were $10.3 billion, up 1% from $10.2 billion in the prior-year period, driven primarily by the higher volumes in each of GCB and Transaction Services. Citi Holdings expenses were down 16% year-over-year to $1.2 billion, principally due to the continued decline in assets and thus lower operating expenses, partially offset by higher legal and related costs.
Citi's total provisions for credit losses and for benefits and claims of $3.0 billion declined $165 million, or 5%, from the prior-year period. Net credit losses of $4.0 billion were down $2.3 billion, or 37%, from the first quarter of 2011. Consumer net credit losses declined $1.4 billion, or 25%, to $4.0 billion, driven by continued credit improvement in Citicorp North America Citi-branded cards and Citi retail services (formerly retail partner cards) and in Local Consumer Lending within Citi Holdings. Corporate net credit losses decreased $932 million year-over-year to a net credit recovery of $83 million, driven by a series of recoveries in both Securities and Banking and in the Special Asset Pool in Citi Holdings.
The net release of allowance for loan losses and unfunded lending commitments was $1.2 billion in the first quarter of 2012, compared to a net release of $3.3 billion in the first quarter of 2011. Of the $1.2 billion net reserve release, $1.3 billion related to Consumer and was mainly driven by North America Citi-branded cards and Citi retail services and North America mortgages in Citi Holdings. The $112 million net Corporate reserve build reflected continued growth in the Corporate loan portfolio in Citicorp.
$588 million of the net credit reserve release was attributable to Citicorp and compared to a $1.8 billion release in the prior-year period. The decline in the Citicorp reserve release year-over-year reflected a net build within international GCB (which encompasses Asia, Latin America and EMEA) and Securities and Banking, reflecting continued loan growth in these businesses. The $576 million net credit release in Citi Holdings was down from $1.5 billion in the prior-year period due primarily to lower releases in the Special Asset Pool.
Capital and Loan Loss Reserve Positions
Citigroup's Tier 1 Capital ratio was 14.3% at quarter-end and its Tier 1 Common ratio was 12.5%, up approximately 100 and 120 basis points, respectively, from the prior-year period.
Citigroup's total allowance for loan losses was $29.0 billion at quarter end, or 4.5% of total loans, compared to $36.6 billion, or 5.8%, at the end of the prior-year period. The decline in the total allowance for loan losses reflected asset sales in Citi Holdings, lower non-accrual loans, and overall continued improvement in the credit quality of the loan portfolios.
The Consumer allowance for loan losses was $26.0 billion, or 6.3% of total Consumer loans, at quarter-end, compared to $32.7 billion, or 7.5% of total loans, at March 31, 2011. Total non-accrual assets declined 25% to $12.3 billion compared to the first quarter 2011. Corporate non-accrual loans declined 46% to $3.0 billion, and Consumer non-accrual loans declined 6% to $8.7 billion.
Citicorp net income decreased 3% from the prior-year period to $4.3 billion, largely reflecting a decline in reported revenues as well as higher credit costs, primarily as a result of lower loan loss reserve releases. Reported revenues of $18.0 billion were down 1% from the prior-year period, primarily stemming from negative CVA/DVA in Securities and Banking of $1.4 billion, compared to a negative $229 million in the prior-year period. Excluding CVA/DVA, Citicorp net income increased 13% from the prior-year period to $5.2 billion, mainly reflecting revenue growth across all of Citicorp's businesses.
Excluding CVA/DVA, Citicorp revenues were $19.4 billion, 6% higher than the first quarter 2011. Global Consumer Banking revenues of $10.0 billion grew 5% year-over-year. North America GCB revenues grew 5% to $5.2 billion while international GCB revenues grew 4% to $4.8 billion, each compared to the first quarter 2011. Average retail banking loans increased 16% year-over-year to $139.3 billion, and average deposits increased 3% to $318.6 billion, both driven by North America, Asia and Latin America. Citi-branded and retail services average card loans decreased 1% year-over-year to $148.3 billion, as continued growth in Asia and Latin America was offset by lower average balances in North America (for both Citi-branded cards and Citi retail services) and EMEA. Cards purchase sales grew 6% from the prior-year period to $85.4 billion, and international investment sales decreased 6% to $19.0 billion on weaker retail investor sentiment versus the prior-year period.
Securities and Banking revenues were $5.3 billion in the first quarter of 2012, down 12% year-on-year, driven by the higher negative CVA/DVA. Excluding the impact of CVA/DVA, Securities and Banking revenues were $6.7 billion, 6% higher than the prior-year period. Fixed income markets revenues of $4.7 billion in the first quarter of 2012, excluding CVA/DVA,(1) increased 19% from the prior-year period, primarily reflecting strong performance in rates and currencies across all products and regions as overall market conditions improved in the first quarter of 2012 and client activity increased. Credit and securitized products were down versus the prior-year period, however, largely reflecting lower risk levels in the business. Equity markets revenues of $902 million in the first quarter of 2012, excluding CVA/DVA, were 18% below the prior-year period, largely related to lower industry volumes, particularly in cash equities. Investment banking revenues grew 2% from the prior-year period to $865 million as growth in debt underwriting offset declines in advisory and equity underwriting revenues. Lending revenues of $56 million were down from $255 million in the prior-year period, as higher net interest revenues were more than offset by greater hedge losses in the first quarter of 2012. Private bank revenues of $576 million, excluding CVA/DVA, were up 11% year-over-year due to higher loan and deposit balances as well as stronger capital markets activity.
Transaction Services revenues were $2.7 billion, up 7% from the prior-year period, as growth in Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS) offset declines in Securities and Fund Services (SFS). TTS revenue growth reflected strong growth in deposits and average assets, particularly in trade finance, while the decline in SFS revenues reflected lower settlement volumes. Transaction Services average deposits and other customer liabilities grew 6% year-over-year to $377 billion, while assets under custody decreased 1% year-over-year to $12.6 trillion.
Citicorp end-of-period loans increased 12% year-over-year to $514 billion, with 6% growth in Consumer loans and 23% growth in Corporate loans.
Citi Holdings net loss of $1.0 billion in the first quarter of 2012 was slightly higher than the loss reported in the first quarter of 2011, as revenue declines and lower credit reserve releases exceeded expense declines and a continued improvement in net credit losses.
Citi Holdings revenues decreased 47% from the prior-year period to $874 million. Excluding CVA/DVA of positive $88 million in the first quarter of 2012, compared to a negative $27 million in the prior-year period, Citi Holdings revenues were $786 million, 53% lower than the first quarter 2011. Net interest revenues declined 32% year-over-year to $701 million, largely driven by declining loan balances in Local Consumer Lending and lower interest-earning assets in the Special Asset Pool. Non-interest revenues, excluding CVA/DVA, decreased 87% to $84 million from the prior-year period, primarily reflecting the absence of positive private equity marks recorded in the Special Asset Pool in the first quarter of 2011 combined with a repurchase reserve build related to private-label mortgage securitizations in the Special Asset Pool in the current quarter.
Citi Holdings assets declined 29% year-over-year to $209 billion at March 31, 2012, and comprised approximately 11% of total Citigroup GAAP assets and 19% of risk-weighted assets as of such date. Local Consumer Lending continued to represent the largest segment within Citi Holdings, with $147 billion of assets. Over 70% of Local Consumer Lending assets, or approximately $104 billion, were mortgage loans in North America real estate lending. At March 31, 2012, approximately $9.4 billion of loan loss reserves were allocated to North America real estate lending in Citi Holdings.

NORTH AMERICA REGIONAL CONSUMER BANKING
North America Regional Consumer Banking (NA RCB) provides traditional banking and Citi-branded card and Citi retail services to retail customers and small to mid-size businesses in the U.S. NA RCB's 1,020 retail bank branches and 12.5 million customer accounts, as of March 31, 2012, are largely concentrated in the greater metropolitan areas of New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Washington, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia and certain larger cities in Texas. At March 31, 2012, NA RCB had $40.6 billion of retail banking loans and $153.5 billion of deposits. In addition, NA RCB had 103.6 million Citi-branded and Citi retail services credit card accounts, with $109.4 billion in outstanding card loan balances.

1Q12 vs. 1Q11
Net income increased 41% as compared to the prior-year period, driven by lower net credit losses and higher revenues from higher gains on sale of mortgages, partly offset by lower loan loss reserve releases and higher expenses.
Revenues increased 5% year-over-year as lower net interest margin and loan balances in the cards businesses were more than offset by higher non-interest revenue on sale of mortgages. Net interest revenue decreased 2% year-over-year, driven primarily by lower cards net interest margin which continued to be negatively impacted by the look-back provision of The Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act (CARD Act). (The CARD Act requires a review be done once every six months for card accounts where the annual percentage rate (APR) has been increased since January 1, 2009 to assess whether changes in credit risk, market conditions or other factors merit a future decline in APR.) In addition, net interest revenues for cards was negatively impacted by higher low margin revenue promotional balances and lower total average loans. NA RCB believes the negative impact of the CARD Act and promotional balances should dissipate over the course of 2012 as the population of card accounts subject to the CARD Act look-back provisions declines and promotional balances convert or close. Non-interest revenue increased 46% year-over-year primarily due to the higher gains on sale of mortgages.
Expenses increased 3%, primarily driven by the higher investment spending in the business, particularly in cards marketing and new branches and technology, partially offset by efficiency savings and the absence of a litigation reserve relating to the interchange litigation recorded in the first quarter of 2011.
Provisions decreased 32%, primarily due to lower credit losses in the cards portfolio, partly offset by the continued lower loan loss reserve releases ($1.2 billion in the first quarter of 2011 compared to $841 million in the current quarter).
EMEA REGIONAL CONSUMER BANKING
EMEA Regional Consumer Banking (EMEA RCB) provides traditional banking and Citi-branded card services to retail customers and small to mid-size businesses, primarily in Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The countries in which EMEA RCB has the largest presence are Poland, Turkey, Russia and the United Arab Emirates. EMEA RCB had 286 retail bank branches with 4.0 million customer accounts, $4.5 billion in retail banking loans and $12.8 billion in deposits. In addition, the business had 2.6 million Citi-branded card accounts with $2.9 billion in outstanding card loan balances.
NM Not meaningful
1Q12 vs. 1Q11
Net income declined by $65 million year-over-year, due to lower revenues and higher operating expenses and credit costs. Effective January 1, 2012, Akbank, Citi's equity investment in Turkey, was moved from EMEA RCB to Corporate/Other due to Citi's announced potential reduction in share holdings in Akbank. The decline in net income year-over-year was driven by lower revenues, including the absence of Akbank, and higher expenses, partially offset by lower net credit losses.
Revenues decreased 10% from the prior-year period, driven by the impact of FX translation (negative 4%), as well as the absence of Akbank. Net interest revenue increased 8% driven by the removal of Akbank investment funding costs in the current quarter, partially offset by the impact of FX translation. Excluding these items, net interest revenue was essentially flat, as better spreads on deposits and retail loan growth were mostly offset by loan spread compression. Interest rate caps on credit cards, particularly in Turkey, and the continued liquidation of the higher yielding non-strategic retail banking portfolio were the main contributors to the lower spreads. Non-interest revenue decreased 35%, reflecting the absence of the Akbank contribution in the current quarter. Cards purchase sales grew 17%.
Expenses increased 13%, primarily due to the impact of continued account acquisition-focused investment spending, increased volumes and repositioning charges in Poland and Egypt.
Provisions increased 53%, primarily due to lower loan loss reserve releases, partially offset by continued lower net credit losses. Net credit losses declined 41% due to the ongoing improvement in credit quality and the move towards lower risk products. Provisions will likely continue to negatively impact the results of operations of EMEA RCB during 2012 as net credit losses have largely stabilized and loan loss reserve releases will generally remain lower than comparable prior-year period levels.
LATIN AMERICA REGIONAL CONSUMER BANKING
Latin America Regional Consumer Banking (LATAM RCB) provides traditional banking and branded card services to retail customers and small to mid-size businesses, with the largest presence in Mexico and Brazil. LATAM RCB includes branch networks throughout Latin America as well as Banco Nacional de Mexico, or Banamex, Mexico's second-largest bank, with over 1,700 branches. At March 31, 2012, LATAM RCB had 2,201 retail branches, with 31.1 million customer accounts, $26.1 billion in retail banking loans and $46.1 billion in deposits. In addition, the business had 13.1 million Citi-branded card accounts with $14.3 billion in outstanding loan balances.
1Q12 vs. 1Q11
Net income declined 21% as higher cost of credit more than offset increased operating margin as revenues grew 6% with expenses remaining flat.
Revenues increased 6%, which included a negative 500 basis point impact of FX translation. Revenue growth was driven by growth in personal and card loans, primarily in Mexico. Net interest revenue increased 6% as growth in lending volumes of 16% offset reduced spreads as new loan origination was focused in higher credit quality customer segments. Non-interest revenue increased 7%, predominantly driven by an increase in fees resulting from higher banking transactions and Cards purchase sales, which grew 12%.
Expenses remained flat as compared to the first quarter of 2011 as higher account and transaction volumes, increased compensation due to increased sales incentives and legal and related items were offset by the impact of FX translation and ongoing savings initiatives across the region.
Provisions increased 97% from the prior-year period, reflecting a loan loss reserve build of $113 million in the current period versus a $147 million release in the prior-year period. The build was driven by higher volumes and portfolio seasoning in the personal loans portfolio. Net credit losses were 6% higher, resulting from portfolio growth.
ASIA REGIONAL CONSUMER BANKING
Asia Regional Consumer Banking (Asia RCB) provides traditional banking and Citi-branded card services to retail customers and small to mid-size businesses, with the largest Citi presence in South Korea, Australia, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India and Indonesia. Citi's Japan Consumer Finance business, which Citi has been exiting since 2008, is included in Citi Holdings. At March 31, 2012, Asia RCB had 643 retail branches, 16.5 million customer accounts, $68.8 billion in retail banking loans and $110.7 billion in deposits. In addition, the business had 15.7 million Citi-branded card accounts with $19.6 billion in outstanding loan balances.
1Q12 vs. 1Q11
Net income increased 11% year-over-year, driven by higher revenues and lower net credit losses, partially offset by lower loan loss reserve releases and marginally higher expenses.
Revenues increased 5% year-over-year, primarily driven by higher business volumes and the absence of charges relating to the repurchase of certain Lehman structured notes ($70 million) recorded in the prior-year period, partially offset by continued spread compression. Net interest revenue was flat year-over-year as continued increases in lending and deposit volumes were offset by spread compression. Spread compression continued to be driven by stricter underwriting criteria arising from a lowering of the risk profile for personal and other loans, and this will likely continue to have a negative impact on net interest revenue in the near-term. Non-interest revenue increased 17%, reflecting growth in Citi-branded cards purchase sales and higher revenues from foreign exchange products and the absence of the above mentioned Lehman related charges, partially offset by a 26% decrease in investment sales year-over-year. Investment sales increased 40% from the fourth quarter of 2011.
Expenses increased 2%, largely due to growth in business volumes, partially offset by ongoing productivity savings.
Provisions increased 7% as lower loan loss reserve releases were partially offset by continued lower net credit losses, although the pace of improvement in net credit losses has slowed. The increase in credit provisions reflected the increasing volumes in the region, partially offset by continued credit quality improvement, particularly in Japan and India. India remained a significant driver of the improvement in credit quality, as it continued to de-risk elements of its legacy portfolio. Assuming the underlying core portfolio continues to grow and season in 2012, Citi expects credit costs could continue to increase marginally in line with portfolio growth.
