Citigroup’s first-quarter profit tumbles 46% as it sets aside more money for loan losses



By Fred Imbert

Citigroup reported first-quarter earnings on Wednesday. Here’s how the company did:

  • Earnings: $1.05 per share vs $1.87 per share in the year-earlier period

  • Revenue: $20.7 billion, up 12% from the previous year

  • Net income: $2.52 billion, down 46% from the prior year

  • Loan loss reserves: up $4.9 billion

The company noted revenue was up 12% because of higher fixed income and equity markets trading revenue. 


Citigroup shares fell nearly 3% in the premarket. 

Wall Street had anticipated earnings per share of $1.04 on revenue of $19 billion based on Refinitiv consensus estimates. However, it’s difficult to compare reported earnings to analyst estimates for [Tk’s company Tk quarter], as the coronavirus pandemic continues to hit global economies and makes earnings impact difficult to assess.

Citigroup shares have tumbled more than 43% as investors grapple with the economic ramifications of the coronavirus outbreak. Nearly 2 million cases have been confirmed around the world, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The outbreak led to a virtual shutdown of the global economy as governments urge people to stay at home. It also led to unprecedented stimulus from the Federal Reserve and U.S. lawmakers to stem the economic fallout.

Citigroup said last month it would give $1,000 to eligible workers making $60,000 or less to help ease the “financial burden” from the outbreak.


Citigroup’s earnings come a day after JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo released their quarterly results. Bank of America and Goldman Sachs reported earlier on Wednesday.
