Very strong position in US and European market. Innovative product offering, e.g. launch of new schemes and offers in relation to products Citibank being the giant subsidiary of Citigroup Financial, has a strong hold in the market
Weaknesses Citibank, recently, has lost its image due to credit card theft, losses into recession and sacking of the employees Most of its online operations are present only in US and European markets, not in Asian markets
Increasing focus on Asian & Central Eastern European. Online Presence
Threats Weak Economy affected Market Condition Foreign Exchange fluctuations
Few of the problems that Citibank faced in its course. courseCitibank faced various problems in its journey to becoming one of the largest banks in the world.
e.g.Setting up in Latin American countries like Columbia, where foreign investment option is pretty vague. Somehow, it could cut its way through and got itself established in Columbia. It also faced few problems in setting up in china due to its strictly regulated markets. Foreign banks were kept under special vigilance in china. But again, it wasn t so tough to capture its market and compete with the major international bank HSBC in china. Lately, a BPO fraud in India cost Citibank a lot. It somehow lost trust of the credit card holders. One of the reasons for it being a tarnished brand name . Citibank, however, denied the charges and made sure everything worked out fine at their front.
RecessionHowever, the biggest of them all was pretty recent, when recession hit the US and European economy, where the presence of Citibank is immense.
2008Citibank reportedly was ordered to repay $18 million in August, 2008 On Nov 17, 2008, Citibank declared it will cut 52000 jobs, far more than had been expected It was loosing approximately $8-11 million every day, and it went on for several days Under these circumstances Citibank shares fell more than 6% CONTINUED .
Citibank shares continued to fall and losses kept on mounting up US stock exchange fell by more than 200 points the day Citibank declared job cuts Economies like Japan, Singapore were already in recession by now
Citibank s share price till Nov 20, 2008
Net income fell down to negative within 2 years
Citibank in the news
Citibank ordered to repay $18 million
Citibank saved through a bailout plan of $20 Billion
The action, announced jointly by the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve and Department, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., is aimed at shoring up a huge financial Corp., institution whose collapse would wreak havoc on the already crippled financial system and the U.S. economy. As they said "We will continue to use all of our resources to preserve the strength of our banking institutions, and promote the process of repair and recovery and to manage risks" .
US government rescues Citibank, bails out Citibank with $20 billion The Citibank bailout, announced on Nov 25, 2008 will give the US government a 7.8 per cent equity stake Shares of Citigroup surged as much as 72 per cent the very next day Citibank reports profit for January and February 2009, Dow Jones (US stock Exchange) up 379 pts Citibank Korea s Q2 (April June) net profit up 13.8 %
Citibank India net profit rises 20.45 % to Rs. 2173 Crore during 2008-2009
At the moment it seems like bailout is going to repaid before time
A word of CAUTION
Although, it is fairly recent to comment whether Citibank has revived completely or not, however, relating to the present scenario, it has definitely survived recession. This definitely had been the major crisis Citibank has ever faced in its course. Still, lot of cost cutting measures have to be applied by Citibank to come out of the struggle and win over recession.
