NEW YORK -- March 14, 2013

Citigroup today announced that the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) has advised
Citi that it has no objection to the planned capital actions requested by Citi
as part of the 2013 Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR).

The planned capital actions include a $1.2 billion common stock buyback
program through the first quarter of 2014 and the maintenance of current
common stock dividends ($0.01 per share per quarter). Any repurchases of
common stock and common stock dividends remain subject to approval by
Citigroup’s Board of Directors.

Michael Corbat, Citi’s Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased that Citi
will be able to return additional capital to shareholders. Over the past
several years, we have rebuilt Citi’s capital base and strengthened our
balance sheet as well as shed assets and businesses not core to our strategy.
We remain focused on our clients and allocating our resources to where they
can provide the best returns and generate consistent, high-quality earnings.”
