Impact of Recent U.S. Government Agreements
During the first quarter of 2009, Citigroup issued $7.059 billion of preferred stock to the U.S. Treasury and the FDIC, and a warrant to purchase common stock to the U.S. Treasury, as consideration for the loss-sharing agreement with the USG. See "TARP and Other Regulatory Programs." Citigroup received no additional cash proceeds for their issuance. Of the issuance, $3.617 billion, representing the fair value of the issued shares and warrant, was treated as Tier 1 Capital, adding approximately 35 basis points to the Tier 1 Capital ratio during the first quarter.
In addition, on February 27, 2009, the Company announced an exchange offer of its common stock for up to a total of $27.5 billion of its existing preferred stock and trust preferred securities. On May 7, 2009, as a result of the USG's Supervisory Capital Assessment Program (SCAP), the Company announced that it will expand the Exchange Offer by increasing the maximum amount of preferred securities and trust preferred securities that it will accept in the Exchange Offer by $5.5 billion to a total of $33 billion. The USG will match the exchange by converting up to a maximum of $25 billion of its preferred stock into common stock. This transaction could increase Tier 1 Common of the Company from the first quarter of 2009 level of $22.1 billion to as much as $86.2 billion, which assumes the exchange of $33 billion of preferred securities and trust preferred securities, the maximum eligible under the transaction. Citi's tangible common equity (TCE), which was $30.9 billion as of March 31, 2009, will increase by as much as $60.4 billion to up to $91.3 billion.There will be no impact to Tier 1 Capital resulting from the exchange offer.
These first quarter 2009 transactions built upon actions taken by the Company, in conjunction with the USG, during the latter part of 2008 to increase its capital, including without limitation the issuance of an aggregate of $45 billion in preferred stock and warrants to the USG under TARP, all of which was treated as Tier 1 Capital for regulatory capital purposes. See "Events in 2009" and "TARP and Other Regulatory Programs." As a result of these and other issuances of preferred stock, the conversion price of the Company's preferred stock issued in a private offering in January 2008 was reset, resulting in a reclassification from Retained earnings to Additional paid in capital of approximately $1.285 billion. See "Events in 2009Exchange Offer and Conversions."
Future business results of the Company, including events such as corporate dispositions, will continue to affect the Company's capital levels. Moreover, changes that the FASB has proposed regarding off-balance sheet assets, consolidation and sale treatment could also have an incremental impact on capital ratios.
