GLOBAL CONSUMER2004 NET INCOME BY REGION*
[EDGAR REPRESENTATION OF GRAPHIC DATA]
Global Consumer reported net income of $11.811 billion in 2004, up $2.320 billion or 24% from 2003, driven by double-digit growth across all products and a $378 million after-tax gain on the sale of Samba. Cards net income increased $1.110 billion or 31% in 2004 mainly reflecting improved credit costs, including the impact of credit reserve releases, the addition of the Sears, Home Depot and KorAm portfolios, growth in international receivables, and the benefit of certain one-time tax credits. Retail Banking net income increased $582 million or 14% in 2004 primarily due to the impact of improved credit costs, including the impact of credit reserve releases, led by the Commercial Business in North America, and strong international growth led by Asia. Consumer Finance net income increased $409 million or 21% in 2004 primarily due to a higher net interest margin in North America, lower credit costs, the impact of the Washington Mutual Finance (WMF) acquisition, and growth in Latin America and Asia, partially offset by weakness in Japan and EMEA.
Net income in 2003 increased $1.447 billion or 18% from 2002, reflecting double-digit growth in Retail Banking and Cards that was primarily driven by the impact of acquisitions and strong growth in North America including Mexico, Asia and Latin America, and was partially offset by declines in Japan, driven by continued weakness in Consumer Finance.

In February and May 2002, CitiFinancial Japan acquired the consumer finance businesses of Taihei Co., Ltd. (Taihei) and Marufuku Co., Ltd. (Marufuku), adding $1.1 billion in loans. These business acquisitions were accounted for as purchases; therefore, their results are included in the Global Consumer results from the dates of acquisition.
Global Consumer has divested several non-strategic businesses and portfolios as opportunities to exit became available. Certain divestitures include Global Consumer's share of Citigroup's 20% equity investment in Samba and a $900 million vendor finance leasing business in Europe in 2004, the sales of the $1.2 billion Fleet Services portfolio in the North American Commercial Business and of $1.7 billion of credit card portfolios in 2003, and the 2002 sale of the $2.0 billion mortgage portfolio in Japan Retail Banking.
