Second Quarter 2023 Results
July 14, 2023; Citigroup Inc. reported net income for the second quarter 2023 of $2.9 billion, or $1.33 per diluted share, on revenues of $19.4 billion. This compares to net income of $4.5 billion, or $2.19 per diluted share, on revenues of $19.6 billion for the second quarter 2022.
Second quarter results included divestiture-related impacts of $(73) million in earnings before taxes ($(92) million after-tax), primarily driven by separation costs related to Mexico and severance costs in Asia exit markets, which were both recorded in Legacy Franchises. Excluding these divestiture-related impacts, earnings per share was $1.37. This compares to divestiture-related impacts in the second quarter 2022 of $48 million in earnings before taxes ($35 million after-tax), also recorded in Legacy Franchises, and earnings per share in the second quarter of 2022, excluding divestiture-related impacts, of $2.17.
Citigroup revenues of $19.4 billion in the second quarter 2023 decreased 1%. The lower revenues reflected strength across Services and US Personal Banking which was more than offset by declines in Markets, Investment Banking, and Global Wealth Management, as well as the revenue reduction from the exited markets and continued wind-downs. The decline in revenues was also partially offset by higher revenues in Corporate / Other.
Citigroup operating expenses of $13.6 billion in the second quarter 2023 increased 9%, largely driven by investments in risk and control, business-led and enterprise-led investments, volume growth and macro factors, including inflation, as well as severance. The expense increase was partially offset by productivity savings and an expense reduction from the exited markets and continued wind-downs.
Citigroup cost of credit was approximately $1.8 billion in the second quarter 2023, compared to $1.3 billion in the prior-year period, primarily driven by the continued normalization in net credit losses. A net build in the allowance for credit losses (ACL) for loans and unfunded commitments of $161 million was primarily driven by Branded Cards and Retail Services, largely related to growth in card balances. Additionally, other provisions were $159 million in the quarter.
Net income of $2.9 billion decreased 36% from the prior-year period. Excluding divestiture-related impacts, net income decreased 33%. The decrease in net income was primarily driven by higher expenses, higher cost of credit and the lower revenues.
Earnings per share of $1.33 decreased 39% from the prior-year period, reflecting the lower net income and an approximate 1% increase in average diluted shares outstanding.

ICG transacts with clients in both cash instruments and derivatives, including fixed income, foreign currency, equity and commodity products.
ICG’s revenue is generated primarily from fees and spreads associated with these activities. ICG earns fee income for assisting clients with transactional services and clearing and providing brokerage and investment banking services and other such activities. Such fees are recognized at the point in time when Citigroup’s performance under the terms of a contractual arrangement is completed, which is typically at the trade/execution date or closing of a transaction. Revenue generated from these activities is recorded in Commissions and fees and Investment banking fees. Revenue is also generated from assets under custody and administration, which is recognized as/when the associated promised service is satisfied, which normally occurs at the point in time the service is requested by the customer and provided by Citi. Revenue generated from these activities is primarily recorded in Administration and other fiduciary fees.
ICG’s international presence is supported by trading floors in approximately 80 countries and a proprietary network in 95 countries and jurisdictions. As previously disclosed, Citi intends to end nearly all of the institutional banking services it offers in Russia by the end of the first quarter of 2023.
