O’Neill Acquires $1 Million of Citigroup Stock After Pandit Exit

O’Neill Acquires $1 Million of Citigroup Stock After Pandit Exit

Citigroup Inc. Chairman Michael O’Neill acquired $1 million of the lender’s stock about a month after the ouster of Chief Executive Officer Vikram Pandit.

O’Neill, 66, purchased 28,200 shares through a trust at an average price of $35.52 each, the New York-based bank said today in a regulatory filing. He owned 59,513 shares after the transaction, including deferred stock tied to compensation, the filing shows. Edward Skyler, a Citigroup spokesman, declined to comment on the stock purchase.

The board of directors, which O’Neill has led since April, ousted Pandit last month after concluding he mismanaged operations, a person familiar with the matter said at the time. Michael Corbat, 52, who succeeded Pandit, 55, is conducting a review of how the company is run.

Citigroup, the third-biggest U.S. bank, climbed 3 cents to $35.07 in New York. The shares have jumped 33 percent this year, outpacing the 23 percent gain for the 24-company KBW Bank Index.
