Shares of the Convertible Preferred Stock represent a single series of Citigroup authorized preferred stock, and are convertible into shares of Citigroup common stock as described below. Citigroup is offering depositary shares representing shares of Convertible Preferred Stock ($ aggregate liquidation preference), $1.00 par value, with each share of Convertible Preferred Stock having a liquidation preference of $50,000 per share. Each depositary share represents a 1/1,000th interest in a share of the Convertible Preferred Stock (equivalent to $50 per depositary share). Each depositary share entitles the holder to a proportional fractional interest in a share of Convertible Preferred Stock, including conversion, dividend, voting, redemption and liquidation rights.
Citigroup is issuing in concurrent private placements $ aggregate liquidation preference of additional series of convertible preferred stock represented by depositary shares. Such additional convertible preferred stock and depositary shares have the same terms as, and rank equally with, the Convertible Preferred Stock and the related depositary shares.
Holders of the Convertible Preferred Stock have no preemptive rights. Shares of the Convertible Preferred Stock, upon issuance against full payment of the purchase price for the depositary shares, will be fully paid and nonassessable. The depositary will be the sole holder of shares of the Convertible Preferred Stock. The holders of depositary shares will be required to exercise their proportional rights in the Convertible Preferred Stock through the depositary, as described in Description of the Depositary Shares below.
The Convertible Preferred Stock will rank senior to Citigroup common stock and any other stock that is expressly made junior to the preferred stock as to payment of dividends and distribution of assets upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of Citigroup. As of the date of this description, Citigroup has shares of several series of preferred stock outstanding, as set forth below under Outstanding Series of Preferred Stock. In addition, Citigroup may from time to time, without notice to or consent from the holders of the Convertible Preferred Stock, create and issue additional shares of preferred stock ranking equally with or junior to the Convertible Preferred Stock as to dividends and distribution of assets upon the liquidation, dissolution or winding up of Citigroup.
The Convertible Preferred Stock will not be subject to any sinking fund or other obligation of Citigroup to redeem or repurchase the Convertible Preferred Stock.
General. The following provisions will apply if, prior to the conversion date, one of the following events occur:
(a) a person or group within the meaning of Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act files a Schedule TO or any schedule, form or report under the Exchange Act disclosing that such person or group has become the direct or indirect ultimate beneficial owner, as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act, of Citigroup common equity representing more than 50% of the voting power of Citigroup common stock; or
(b) consummation of any consolidation or merger of Citigroup or similar transaction or any sale, lease or other transfer in one transaction or a series of transactions of all or substantially all of the property and assets of Citigroup to any person other than one of Citigroups subsidiaries, in each case pursuant to which Citigroup common stock will be converted into cash, securities or other property, other than pursuant to a transaction in which the persons that beneficially owned (as defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act), directly or indirectly, voting shares of Citigroup immediately prior to such transaction beneficially own, directly or indirectly, voting shares representing a majority of the total voting power of all outstanding classes of voting shares of the continuing or surviving person immediately after the transaction.
These transactions are referred to as make-whole acquisitions; provided, however that a make-whole acquisition will not be deemed to have occurred if at least 90% of the consideration received by holders of Citigroup common stock in the transaction or transactions consists of shares of common stock or depositary receipts in respect of common stock that are traded on a U.S. national securities exchange or securities exchange in the European Economic Area or that will be so traded when issued or exchanged in connection with a make-whole acquisition.
The phrase all or substantially all of Citigroups property and assets is likely to be interpreted by reference to applicable state law at the relevant time, and will be dependent on the facts and circumstances existing at such time. As a result, there may be a degree of uncertainty in ascertaining whether a sale or transfer is of all or substantially all of Citigroups property and assets.
Upon a make-whole acquisition, Citigroup will, in the circumstances and in the manner described below, increase the conversion rate in respect of any conversions of the Convertible Preferred Stock that occur during the period (the make-whole acquisition conversion period)
beginning on the effective date of the make-whole acquisition (the effective date) and ending on the date that is 30 days after the effective date, by a number of additional shares of common stock (the make-whole shares).
Citigroup will notify holders, at least 20 days prior to the anticipated effective date of such make-whole acquisition, of the anticipated effective date of such transaction, and whether the make-whole acquisition is anticipated to be a fundamental change (as defined below). The notice will specify the anticipated effective date of the make-whole acquisition and the date by which each holders make-whole acquisition conversion right must be exercised. Citigroup will also notify holders on the effective date of such make-whole acquisition specifying, among other things, the date that is 30 days after the effective date, the number of make-whole shares (and, if such make-whole acquisition is a fundamental change, the base price (as defined below)) and the amount of the cash, securities and other consideration receivable by the holder upon conversion. To exercise the make-whole acquisition conversion right, a holder must comply with the requirements listed above under Conversion Procedures on or before the close of business on the date specified in the notice and indicate that it is exercising the make-whole acquisition conversion right. If a holder does not elect to exercise the make-whole acquisition conversion right, such holder will not be eligible to receive make-whole shares and such holders shares of the Convertible Preferred Stock will remain outstanding (subject to the holder electing to convert such holders shares as described below under Fundamental Changes, if applicable).
Citigroup is issuing proportional fractional interests in the Convertible Preferred Stock in the form of depositary shares. Each depositary share represents a 1/1,000th interest in a share of the Convertible Preferred Stock. Subject to the terms of the deposit agreement, the depositary shares will be entitled to all the rights and preferences of the Convertible Preferred Stock, as applicable, in proportion to the applicable fraction of a share of Convertible Preferred Stock those depositary shares represent.
In this description, references to holders of depositary shares mean those who have depositary shares registered in their own names on the books maintained by the depositary and, if the Convertible Preferred Stock is held in book-entry form through DTC, not indirect holders who own beneficial interests in depositary shares registered in the street name of, or issued in book-entry form through, DTC.
