Will Citigroup Inc. (C) Return to Its Former Glory?

Page 1 of 2

Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) is a company which provides a large gamut of financial services that includes retail banking, investment banking, asset management, and corporate banking to consumers, corporations, governments, and institutions worldwide. The departure of Vikram Pandit as CEO of Citigroup has become a positive catalyst for the company. It seems that the former manager was not so efficient. Hence, the company was quite unstable with no growth in shareholders’ value. Former Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) director and current chairman Michael E. O’Neill has reshaped the New York Company, by focusing on cost cutting.

Citigroup Inc (NYSE:C)Executive pay plan

Citigroup has now introduced a compensation structure that aligns with performance and is more competitive. In 2012, Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) earned a profit of $7.54 billion. If the annual net income divided by total assets (i.e. return on assets) falls below 0.6%, executives won’t be eligible for any kind of stock units. The executives are only capable of having 150% of its allocation, if the returns of the company are higher. For 2012, there was no cash bonus offered to JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM)’s Jamie Dimon, as well as to Bank of America Corp (NYSE:BAC)’s Brian T. Moynihan. While, Lloyd C. Blankfein of was awarded with $5.7 million cash bonus. In 2011, Vikram Pandit was paid $15 million.

Stock performance

The CEO has planned to fire 11,000 workers to help increase the return for shareholders and to cut costs. In 2012, Citigroup shares returned 50% compared to JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM)’s i.e. 32%.

Blankfein at Goldman Sachs was awarded with $21 million package, while Charlotte based Bank of America awarded Moynihan $12 million.

Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) has been working on soured loans, whittling costs, and unwinding unprofitable business lines which are key prospects for the revenue increase in future. I am highly bullish in this particular stock in long –term which is truly valuable.

Competitor analysis

JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, HSBC Holdings plc (ADR) (NYSE: HBC) are Citi’s main competitors. Bank of America reported a 77% drop in fourth-quarter earnings as it was clearing old problems from its mortgage unit. Bank of America has been reporting quarterly losses that are linked to acquisitions. Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C) reported earnings of $1.2 billion in the final few months of the year.
