Geared Buffer Securities Linked to an Equally Weighted Basket of Ten Underlyings Due December 3, 2025

▪ The securities offered by this pricing supplement are unsecured debt securities issued by Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc. and guaranteed by Citigroup Inc. Unlike conventional debt securities, the securities do not pay interest and do not repay a fixed amount of principal at maturity. Instead, the securities offer a payment at maturity that may be greater than, equal to or less than the stated principal amount, depending on the performance of an equally weighted basket composed of the underlyings specified below.
▪ The securities offer modified exposure to the performance of the basket from the initial basket value to the final basket value, with (i) the opportunity to participate in a limited range of potential appreciation of the basket at the upside participation rate specified below and (ii) a limited buffer against any depreciation of the basket as described below. In exchange for these features, investors in the securities must be willing to forgo any appreciation of the basket in excess of the maximum return at maturity specified below and must be willing to forgo any dividends with respect to any underlying. In addition, investors in the securities must be willing to accept downside exposure to any depreciation of the basket in excess of the buffer percentage specified below. If the basket depreciates by more than the buffer percentage from the initial basket value to the final basket value, you will lose more than 1% of the stated principal amount of your securities for every 1% by which that depreciation exceeds the buffer percentage. Accordingly, the lower the final basket value, the less benefit you will receive from the buffer percentage. You may lose your entire investment in the securities.
▪ In order to obtain the modified exposure to the basket that the securities provide, investors must be willing to accept (i) an investment that may have limited or no liquidity and (ii) the risk of not receiving any amount due under the securities if we and Citigroup Inc. default on our obligations. All payments on the securities are subject to the credit risk of Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc. and Citigroup Inc.

§ If the final basket value is less than the final buffer value:

$1,000 + [$1,000 × the buffer rate × (the basket return + the buffer percentage)]

If the final basket value is less than the final buffer value, which means that the basket has depreciated from the initial basket value by more than the buffer percentage, you will lose more than 1% of the stated principal amount of your securities at maturity for every 1% by which that depreciation exceeds the buffer percentage. Accordingly, the lower the final basket value, the less benefit you will receive from the buffer.

Hypothetical Examples

 

The examples below illustrate how to determine the payment at maturity on the securities, assuming the various hypothetical final basket values indicated below. The examples are solely for illustrative purposes, do not show all possible outcomes and are not a prediction of what the actual payment at maturity on the securities will be. The actual payment at maturity will depend on the actual final basket value.

 

The examples below are based on the following hypothetical values and do not reflect the actual initial underlying values of the underlyings. For the actual initial underlying value of each underlying, see the cover page of this pricing supplement. We have used these hypothetical values, rather than the actual values, to simplify the calculations and aid understanding of how the securities work. However, you should understand that the actual payment at maturity on the securities will be calculated based on the actual initial underlying value of each underlying, and not these hypothetical values. For ease of analysis, figures below have been rounded.

 

Underlying Hypothetical initial underlying value
The Boeing Company $100.00
Cloudflare, Inc. $100.00
Crowdstrike Holdings, Inc. $100.00
Fortinet, Inc. $100.00
L3Harris Technologies, Inc. $100.00
Okta, Inc. $100.00
Palo Alto Networks, Inc. $100.00
Raytheon Technologies Corporation $100.00
Splunk Inc. $100.00
Zscaler, Inc. $100.00

 

Example 1—Upside Scenario A. The final basket value is 105.00, resulting in a 5.00% basket return. In this example, the final basket value is greater than the initial basket value.

Crowdstrike Holdings, Inc. $110.00 10.00% 1/10 1.00%
Fortinet, Inc. $140.00 40.00% 1/10 4.00%
L3Harris Technologies, Inc. $35.00 -65.00% 1/10 -6.50%

Palo Alto Networks, Inc. $25.00 -75.00% 1/10 -7.50%
Raytheon Technologies Corporation $5.00 -95.00% 1/10 -9.50%
Splunk Inc. $125.00 25.00% 1/10 2.50%
Zscaler, Inc. $45.00 -55.00% 1/10 -5.50%
      Sum of the hypothetical weighted underlying returns: 5.00%
      Hypothetical final basket value:

100 × (1 + the sum of the hypothetical weighted underlying returns)

= 100 × (1 + 5.00%)

= 105.00000

 

Payment at maturity per security = $1,000 + the return amount, subject to the maximum return at maturity

 

= $1,000 + ($1,000 × the basket return × the upside participation rate), subject to the maximum return at maturity

 

= $1,000 + ($1,000 × 5.00% × 100.00%), subject to the maximum return at maturity

 

= $1,000 + $50.00, subject to the maximum return at maturity

 

= $1,050.00

 

In this scenario, the basket has appreciated from the initial basket value to the final basket value, and the basket return multiplied by the upside participation rate is less than the maximum return at maturity. As a result, your total return at maturity would equal the basket return multiplied by the upside participation rate.

Example 2—Upside Scenario B. The final basket value is 210.00, resulting in a 110.00% basket return. In this example, the final basket value is greater than the initial basket value.

Zscaler, Inc. $190.00 90.00% 1/10 9.00%
      Sum of the hypothetical weighted underlying returns 110.00%
      Hypothetical final basket value:

100 × (1 + the sum of the hypothetical weighted underlying returns)

= 100 × (1 + 110.00%)

= 210.00000

 

Payment at maturity per security = $1,000 + the return amount, subject to the maximum return at maturity

 

= $1,000 + ($1,000 × the basket return × the upside participation rate), subject to the maximum return at maturity

 

= $1,000 + ($1,000 × 110.00% × 100.00%), subject to the maximum return at maturity

 

= $1,000 + $1,100.00, subject to the maximum return at maturity

 

= $1,955.00

 

In this scenario, the basket has appreciated from the initial basket value to the final basket value, but the basket return multiplied by the upside participation rate would exceed the maximum return at maturity. As a result, your total return at maturity in this scenario would be limited to the maximum return at maturity, and an investment in the securities would underperform a hypothetical alternative investment providing 1-to-1 exposure to the appreciation of the basket without a maximum return.

 

Example 3—Par Scenario. The final basket value is 95.00, resulting in a -5.00% basket return. In this example, the final basket value is less than the initial basket value but greater than the final buffer value.

Payment at maturity per security = $1,000

 

In this scenario, the basket has depreciated from the initial basket value to the final basket value, but not by more than the buffer percentage. As a result, you would be repaid the stated principal amount of your securities at maturity but would not receive any positive return on your investment.

Example 4—Downside Scenario A. The final basket value is 70.00, resulting in a -30.00% basket return. In this example, the final basket value is less than the final buffer value.

= 70.00000

 

Payment at maturity per security = $1,000 + [$1,000 × the buffer rate × (the basket return + the buffer percentage)]

 

= $1,000 + [$1,000 × 1.25 × (-30.00% + 20.00%)]

 

= $1,000 + [$1,000 × 1.25 × -10.00%]

 

= $1,000 + -$125.00

 

= $875.00

 

In this scenario, the basket has depreciated from the initial basket value to the final basket value by more than the buffer percentage. As a result, your total return at maturity in this scenario would be negative and you will lose more than 1% of the stated principal amount of your securities for every 1% by which the basket declined beyond the buffer percentage.

 

Example 5—Downside Scenario B. The final basket value is 30.00, resulting in a -70.00% basket return. In this example, the final basket value is less than the final buffer value.

= $1,000 + [$1,000 × 1.25 × (-70.00% + 20.00%)]

 

= $1,000 + [$1,000 × 1.25 × -50.00%]

 

= $1,000 + -$625.00

 

= $375.00

 

In this scenario, the basket has depreciated from the initial basket value to the final basket value by more than the buffer percentage. As a result, your total return at maturity in this scenario would be negative you will lose more than 1% of the stated principal amount of your securities for every 1% by which the basket declined beyond the buffer percentage. A comparison of this example with the previous example illustrates the diminishing benefit of the buffer percentage the greater the depreciation of the basket.

Summary Risk Factors

 

An investment in the securities is significantly riskier than an investment in conventional debt securities. The securities are subject to all of the risks associated with an investment in our conventional debt securities (guaranteed by Citigroup Inc.), including the risk that we and Citigroup Inc. may default on our obligations under the securities, and are also subject to risks associated with the basket. Accordingly, the securities are suitable only for investors who are capable of understanding the complexities and risks of the securities. You should consult your own financial, tax and legal advisors as to the risks of an investment in the securities and the suitability of the securities in light of your particular circumstances.

 

The following is a summary of certain key risk factors for investors in the securities. You should read this summary together with the more detailed description of risks relating to an investment in the securities contained in the section “Risk Factors Relating to the Securities” beginning on page EA-7 in the accompanying product supplement. You should also carefully read the risk factors included in the accompanying prospectus supplement and in the documents incorporated by reference in the accompanying prospectus, including Citigroup Inc.’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, which describe risks relating to the business of Citigroup Inc. more generally.

 

§ You may lose a significant portion or all of your investment. Unlike conventional debt securities, the securities do not repay a fixed amount of principal at maturity. Instead, your payment at maturity will depend on the final basket value. If the final basket value is less than the final buffer value, you will lose more than 1% of the stated principal amount of your securities for every 1% by which the basket has depreciated by more than the buffer percentage. You should understand that any decline in the final basket value in excess of the buffer percentage will result in a magnified loss to your investment by the buffer rate, which will progressively offset any protection that the buffer percentage would offer. The lower the final basket value, the less benefit you will receive from the buffer percentage. There is no minimum payment at maturity on the securities, and you may lose up to all of your investment.

 

§ Your potential return on the securities is limited. Your potential total return on the securities at maturity is limited to the maximum return at maturity, even if the basket appreciates by significantly more than the maximum return at maturity. If the basket appreciates by more than the maximum return at maturity, the securities will underperform an alternative investment providing 1-to-1 exposure to the performance of the basket. When lost dividends are taken into account, the securities may underperform an alternative investment providing 1-to-1 exposure to the performance of the basket even if the basket appreciates by less than the maximum return at maturity.

 

§ The securities do not pay interest. Unlike conventional debt securities, the securities do not pay interest or any other amounts prior to maturity. You should not invest in the securities if you seek current income during the term of the securities.

 

§ You will not receive dividends or have any other rights with respect to the underlyings. You will not receive any dividends with respect to the underlyings. This lost dividend yield may be significant over the term of the securities. The payment scenarios described in this pricing supplement do not show any effect of lost dividend yield over the term of the securities. In addition, you will not have voting rights or any other rights with respect to the underlyings. If any change to the underlying shares is proposed, such as an amendment to the underlying’s organizational documents, you will not have the right to vote on such change. Any such change may adversely affect the market value of the underlyings.

 

§ Your payment at maturity depends on the value of the basket on a single day. Because your payment at maturity depends on the value of the basket solely on the valuation date, you are subject to the risk that the value of the basket on that day may be lower, and possibly significantly lower, than on one or more other dates during the term of the securities. If you had invested directly in the underlyings or in another instrument linked to the basket that you could sell for full value at a time selected by you, or if the payment at maturity were based on an average of closing values of the basket, you might have achieved better returns.

 

§ The securities are subject to the credit risk of Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc. and Citigroup Inc. If we default on our obligations under the securities and Citigroup Inc. defaults on its guarantee obligations, you may not receive anything owed to you under the securities.

 

§ The securities will not be listed on any securities exchange and you may not be able to sell them prior to maturity. The securities will not be listed on any securities exchange. Therefore, there may be little or no secondary market for the securities. CGMI currently intends to make a secondary market in relation to the securities and to provide an indicative bid price for the securities on a daily basis. Any indicative bid price for the securities provided by CGMI will be determined in CGMI’s sole discretion, taking into account prevailing market conditions and other relevant factors, and will not be a representation by CGMI that the securities can be sold at that price, or at all. CGMI may suspend or terminate making a market and providing indicative bid prices without notice, at any time and for any reason. If CGMI suspends or terminates making a market, there may be no secondary market at all for the securities because it is likely that CGMI will be the only broker-dealer that is willing to buy your securities prior to maturity. Accordingly, an investor must be prepared to hold the securities until maturity.

 

§ The estimated value of the securities on the pricing date, based on CGMI’s proprietary pricing models and our internal funding rate, is less than the issue price. The difference is attributable to certain costs associated with selling, structuring and hedging the securities that are included in the issue price. These costs include (i) any selling concessions or other fees paid in connection with the offering of the securities, (ii) hedging and other costs incurred by us and our affiliates in connection with the offering of the securities and (iii) the expected profit (which may be more or less than actual profit) to CGMI or other of our affiliates in connection with hedging our obligations under the securities. These costs adversely affect the economic terms of the securities because, if they were lower, the economic terms of the securities would be more favorable to you. The economic terms of the securities are also likely to be adversely affected by the use of our internal funding rate, rather than our secondary market rate, to price the securities. See “The estimated value of the securities would be lower if it were calculated based on our secondary market rate” below.

 

§ The estimated value of the securities was determined for us by our affiliate using proprietary pricing models. CGMI derived the estimated value disclosed on the cover page of this pricing supplement from its proprietary pricing models. In doing so, it may have made

 

  PS- 6
Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc.
 

discretionary judgments about the inputs to its models, such as the volatility of, and correlation between, the closing values of the underlyings, dividend yields on the underlyings and interest rates. CGMI’s views on these inputs may differ from your or others’ views, and as an underwriter in this offering, CGMI’s interests may conflict with yours. Both the models and the inputs to the models may prove to be wrong and therefore not an accurate reflection of the value of the securities. Moreover, the estimated value of the securities set forth on the cover page of this pricing supplement may differ from the value that we or our affiliates may determine for the securities for other purposes, including for accounting purposes. You should not invest in the securities because of the estimated value of the securities. Instead, you should be willing to hold the securities to maturity irrespective of the initial estimated value.

 

§ The estimated value of the securities would be lower if it were calculated based on our secondary market rate. The estimated value of the securities included in this pricing supplement is calculated based on our internal funding rate, which is the rate at which we are willing to borrow funds through the issuance of the securities. Our internal funding rate is generally lower than our secondary market rate, which is the rate that CGMI will use in determining the value of the securities for purposes of any purchases of the securities from you in the secondary market. If the estimated value included in this pricing supplement were based on our secondary market rate, rather than our internal funding rate, it would likely be lower. We determine our internal funding rate based on factors such as the costs associated with the securities, which are generally higher than the costs associated with conventional debt securities, and our liquidity needs and preferences. Our internal funding rate is not an interest rate that is payable on the securities.

 

Because there is not an active market for traded instruments referencing our outstanding debt obligations, CGMI determines our secondary market rate based on the market price of traded instruments referencing the debt obligations of Citigroup Inc., our parent company and the guarantor of all payments due on the securities, but subject to adjustments that CGMI makes in its sole discretion. As a result, our secondary market rate is not a market-determined measure of our creditworthiness, but rather reflects the market’s perception of our parent company’s creditworthiness as adjusted for discretionary factors such as CGMI’s preferences with respect to purchasing the securities prior to maturity.

 

§ The estimated value of the securities is not an indication of the price, if any, at which CGMI or any other person may be willing to buy the securities from you in the secondary market. Any such secondary market price will fluctuate over the term of the securities based on the market and other factors described in the next risk factor. Moreover, unlike the estimated value included in this pricing supplement, any value of the securities determined for purposes of a secondary market transaction will be based on our secondary market rate, which will likely result in a lower value for the securities than if our internal funding rate were used. In addition, any secondary market price for the securities will be reduced by a bid-ask spread, which may vary depending on the aggregate stated principal amount of the securities to be purchased in the secondary market transaction, and the expected cost of unwinding related hedging transactions. As a result, it is likely that any secondary market price for the securities will be less than the issue price.

 

§ The value of the securities prior to maturity will fluctuate based on many unpredictable factors. The value of your securities prior to maturity will fluctuate based on the closing values of the underlyings, the volatility of, and correlation between, the closing values of the underlyings, dividend yields on the underlyings, interest rates generally, the time remaining to maturity and our and Citigroup Inc.’s creditworthiness, as reflected in our secondary market rate, among other factors described under “Risk Factors Relating to the Securities—Risk Factors Relating to All Securities—The value of your securities prior to maturity will fluctuate based on many unpredictable factors” in the accompanying product supplement. Changes in the closing values of the underlyings may not result in a comparable change in the value of your securities. You should understand that the value of your securities at any time prior to maturity may be significantly less than the issue price.

 

§ Immediately following issuance, any secondary market bid price provided by CGMI, and the value that will be indicated on any brokerage account statements prepared by CGMI or its affiliates, will reflect a temporary upward adjustment. The amount of this temporary upward adjustment will steadily decline to zero over the temporary adjustment period. See “Valuation of the Securities” in this pricing supplement.

 

§ Changes in the closing values of the underlyings may offset each other. The performances of the underlyings may not be correlated with each other. If one of the underlyings appreciates, the other underlyings may not appreciate as much or may even depreciate. In such event, the appreciation of one of the underlyings may be moderated, wholly offset or more than offset by lesser appreciation or by depreciation in the value of the other underlyings.

 

§ The underlyings may be highly correlated in decline. The performances of the underlyings may become highly correlated during periods of declining prices. This may occur because of events that have broad effects on markets generally or on the markets that the underlyings track. If the underlyings become correlated in decline, the depreciation of one underlying will not be offset by the performance of the other underlyings and, in fact, each underlying may contribute to an overall decline from the initial basket value to the final basket value.

 

§ An investment in the securities is not a diversified investment. The fact that the securities are linked to a basket does not mean that the securities represent a diversified investment. First, although the underlyings differ in important respects, they each track the performance of equity markets, and each may perform poorly if there is a global downturn in equity markets. Second, the securities are subject to the credit risk of Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc. and Citigroup Inc. No amount of diversification that may be represented by the underlyings will offset the risk that we and Citigroup Inc. may default on our obligations.

 

§ Our offering of the securities is not a recommendation of the basket or the underlyings. The fact that we are offering the securities does not mean that we believe that investing in an instrument linked to the basket or any of the underlyings is likely to achieve favorable returns. In fact, as we are part of a global financial institution, our affiliates may have positions (including short positions) in the underlyings or in instruments related to the underlyings, and may publish research or express opinions, that in each case are inconsistent with an investment linked to the underlyings. These and other activities of our affiliates may affect the closing values of the underlyings in a way that negatively affects the value of and your return on the securities.

 

  PS- 7
Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc.
 
§ The closing value of an underlying may be adversely affected by our or our affiliates’ hedging and other trading activities. We expect to hedge our obligations under the securities through CGMI or other of our affiliates, who may take positions in the underlyings or in financial instruments related to the underlyings and may adjust such positions during the term of the securities. Our affiliates also take positions in the underlyings or in financial instruments related to the underlyings on a regular basis (taking long or short positions or both), for their accounts, for other accounts under their management or to facilitate transactions on behalf of customers. These activities could affect the closing values of the underlyings in a way that negatively affects the value of and your return on the securities. They could also result in substantial returns for us or our affiliates while the value of the securities declines.

 

§ We and our affiliates may have economic interests that are adverse to yours as a result of our affiliates’ business activities. Our affiliates engage in business activities with a wide range of companies. These activities include extending loans, making and facilitating investments, underwriting securities offerings and providing advisory services. These activities could involve or affect the underlyings in a way that negatively affects the value of and your return on the securities. They could also result in substantial returns for us or our affiliates while the value of the securities declines. In addition, in the course of this business, we or our affiliates may acquire non-public information, which will not be disclosed to you.

 

§ The calculation agent, which is an affiliate of ours, will make important determinations with respect to the securities. If certain events occur during the term of the securities, such as market disruption events and other events with respect to an underlying, CGMI, as calculation agent, will be required to make discretionary judgments that could significantly affect your return on the securities. In making these judgments, the calculation agent’s interests as an affiliate of ours could be adverse to your interests as a holder of the securities. See “Risk Factors Relating to the Securities—Risk Factors Relating to All Securities—The calculation agent, which is an affiliate of ours, will make important determinations with respect to the securities” in the accompanying product supplement.

 

§ Even if an underlying pays a dividend that it identifies as special or extraordinary, no adjustment will be required under the securities for that dividend unless it meets the criteria specified in the accompanying product supplement. In general, an adjustment will not be made under the terms of the securities for any cash dividend paid by an underlying unless the amount of the dividend per share, together with any other dividends paid in the same quarter, exceeds the dividend paid per share in the most recent quarter by an amount equal to at least 10% of the closing value of that underlying on the date of declaration of the dividend. Any dividend will reduce the closing value of the underlying by the amount of the dividend per share. If an underlying pays any dividend for which an adjustment is not made under the terms of the securities, holders of the securities will be adversely affected. See “Description of the Securities—Certain Additional Terms for Securities Linked to an Underlying Company or an Underlying ETF—Dilution and Reorganization Adjustments—Certain Extraordinary Cash Dividends” in the accompanying product supplement.

 

§ The securities will not be adjusted for all events that may have a dilutive effect on or otherwise adversely affect the closing value of an underlying. For example, we will not make any adjustment for ordinary dividends or extraordinary dividends that do not meet the criteria described above, partial tender offers or additional underlying share issuances. Moreover, the adjustments we do make may not fully offset the dilutive or adverse effect of the particular event. Investors in the securities may be adversely affected by such an event in a circumstance in which a direct holder of the underlying shares of an underlying would not.

 

§ The securities may become linked to an underlying other than an original underlying upon the occurrence of a reorganization event or upon the delisting of the underlying shares of that original underlying. For example, if an underlying enters into a merger agreement that provides for holders of its underlying shares to receive shares of another entity and such shares are marketable securities, the closing value of that underlying following consummation of the merger will be based on the value of such other shares. Additionally, if the underlying shares of an underlying are delisted, the calculation agent may select a successor underlying. See “Description of the Securities—Certain Additional Terms for Securities Linked to an Underlying Company or an Underlying ETF” in the accompanying product supplement.

 

§ If the underlying shares of an underlying are delisted, we may call the securities prior to maturity for an amount that may be less than the stated principal amount. If we exercise this call right, you will receive the amount described under “Description of the Securities—Certain Additional Terms for Securities Linked to an Underlying Company or an Underlying ETF—Delisting of an Underlying Company” in the accompanying product supplement. This amount may be less, and possibly significantly less, than the stated principal amount of the securities.

 

§ The U.S. federal tax consequences of an investment in the securities are unclear. There is no direct legal authority regarding the proper U.S. federal tax treatment of the securities, and we do not plan to request a ruling from the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”). Consequently, significant aspects of the tax treatment of the securities are uncertain, and the IRS or a court might not agree with the treatment of the securities as prepaid forward contracts. If the IRS were successful in asserting an alternative treatment of the securities, the tax consequences of the ownership and disposition of the securities might be materially and adversely affected. Moreover, future legislation, Treasury regulations or IRS guidance could adversely affect the U.S. federal tax treatment of the securities, possibly retroactively.

 

If you are a non-U.S. investor, you should review the discussion of withholding tax issues in “United States Federal Tax Considerations—Non-U.S. Holders” below.

 

You should read carefully the discussion under “United States Federal Tax Considerations” and “Risk Factors Relating to the Securities” in the accompanying product supplement and “United States Federal Tax Considerations” in this pricing supplement. You should also consult your tax adviser regarding the U.S. federal tax consequences of an investment in the securities, as well as tax consequences arising under the laws of any state, local or non-U.S. taxing jurisdiction.

Hypothetical Historical Information About the Basket

 

Because the basket exists solely for purposes of these securities, historical information on the performance of the basket does not exist for dates prior to the pricing date for these securities. The graph below sets forth the hypothetical historical daily values of the basket for the period from October 25, 2021 to November 28, 2022, assuming that the basket was created on October 25, 2021 with the same underlyings and corresponding weights in the basket and with a value of 100 on that date. The hypothetical performance of the basket is based on the actual closing values of the underlyings on the applicable dates. We obtained these closing values from Bloomberg L.P., without independent verification. Any historical trend in the value of the basket during the period shown below is not an indication of the performance of the basket during the term of the securities.

United States Federal Tax Considerations

 

You should read carefully the discussion under “United States Federal Tax Considerations” and “Risk Factors Relating to the Securities” in the accompanying product supplement and “Summary Risk Factors” in this pricing supplement.

 

In the opinion of our counsel, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, which is based on current market conditions, a security should be treated as a prepaid forward contract for U.S. federal income tax purposes. By purchasing a security, you agree (in the absence of an administrative determination or judicial ruling to the contrary) to this treatment. There is uncertainty regarding this treatment, and the IRS or a court might not agree with it.

 

Assuming this treatment of the securities is respected and subject to the discussion in “United States Federal Tax Considerations” in the accompanying product supplement, the following U.S. federal income tax consequences should result under current law:

 

· You should not recognize taxable income over the term of the securities prior to maturity, other than pursuant to a sale or exchange.

 

· Upon a sale or exchange of a security (including retirement at maturity), you should recognize capital gain or loss equal to the difference between the amount realized and your tax basis in the security. Such gain or loss should be long-term capital gain or loss if you held the security for more than one year.

 

We do not plan to request a ruling from the IRS regarding the treatment of the securities. An alternative characterization of the securities could materially and adversely affect the tax consequences of ownership and disposition of the securities, including the timing and character of income recognized. In addition, the U.S. Treasury Department and the IRS have requested comments on various issues regarding the U.S. federal income tax treatment of “prepaid forward contracts” and similar financial instruments and have indicated that such transactions may be the subject of future regulations or other guidance. Furthermore, members of Congress have proposed legislative changes to the tax treatment of derivative contracts. Any legislation, Treasury regulations or other guidance promulgated after consideration of these issues could materially and adversely affect the tax consequences of an investment in the securities, possibly with retroactive effect. You should consult your tax adviser regarding possible alternative tax treatments of the securities and potential changes in applicable law.

 

Non-U.S. Holders. Subject to the discussions below and in “United States Federal Tax Considerations” in the accompanying product supplement, if you are a Non-U.S. Holder (as defined in the accompanying product supplement) of the securities, you generally should not be subject to U.S. federal withholding or income tax in respect of any amount paid to you with respect to the securities, provided that (i) income in respect of the securities is not effectively connected with your conduct of a trade or business in the United States, and (ii) you comply with the applicable certification requirements.

 

As discussed under “United States Federal Tax Considerations—Tax Consequences to Non-U.S. Holders” in the accompanying product supplement, Section 871(m) of the Code and Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder (“Section 871(m)”) generally impose a 30% withholding tax on dividend equivalents paid or deemed paid to Non-U.S. Holders with respect to certain financial instruments linked to U.S. equities (“U.S. Underlying Equities”) or indices that include U.S. Underlying Equities. Section 871(m) generally applies to instruments that substantially replicate the economic performance of one or more U.S. Underlying Equities, as determined based on tests set forth in the applicable Treasury regulations. However, the regulations, as modified by an IRS notice, exempt financial instruments issued prior to January 1, 2025 that do not have a “delta” of one. Based on the terms of the securities and representations provided by us, our counsel is of the opinion that the securities should not be treated as transactions that have a “delta” of one within the meaning of the regulations with respect to any U.S. Underlying Equity and, therefore, should not be subject to withholding tax under Section 871(m).

 

A determination that the securities are not subject to Section 871(m) is not binding on the IRS, and the IRS may disagree with this treatment. Moreover, Section 871(m) is complex and its application may depend on your particular circumstances, including your other transactions. You should consult your tax adviser regarding the potential application of Section 871(m) to the securities.

 

If withholding tax applies to the securities, we will not be required to pay any additional amounts with respect to amounts withheld.

 

You should read the section entitled “United States Federal Tax Considerations” in the accompanying product supplement. The preceding discussion, when read in combination with that section, constitutes the full opinion of Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP regarding the material U.S. federal tax consequences of owning and disposing of the securities.

 

You should also consult your tax adviser regarding all aspects of the U.S. federal income and estate tax consequences of an investment in the securities and any tax consequences arising under the laws of any state, local or non-U.S. taxing jurisdiction.

 

Supplemental Plan of Distribution

 

CGMI, an affiliate of Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc. and the underwriter of the sale of the securities, is acting as principal and will receive an underwriting fee of up to $23.50 for each security sold in this offering. The actual underwriting fee will be equal to the selling concession provided to selected dealers, as described in this paragraph. From this underwriting fee, CGMI will pay selected dealers not affiliated with CGMI a variable selling concession of up to $23.50 for each security they sell to accounts other than fee-based advisory accounts.

 

See “Plan of Distribution; Conflicts of Interest” in the accompanying product supplement and “Plan of Distribution” in each of the accompanying prospectus supplement and prospectus for additional information.

 

Valuation of the Securities

 

CGMI calculated the estimated value of the securities set forth on the cover page of this pricing supplement based on proprietary pricing models. CGMI’s proprietary pricing models generated an estimated value for the securities by estimating the value of a hypothetical package of financial instruments that would replicate the payout on the securities, which consists of a fixed-income bond (the “bond component”) and one or more derivative instruments underlying the economic terms of the securities (the “derivative component”). CGMI calculated the estimated value of the

bond component using a discount rate based on our internal funding rate. CGMI calculated the estimated value of the derivative component based on a proprietary derivative-pricing model, which generated a theoretical price for the instruments that constitute the derivative component based on various inputs, including the factors described under “Summary Risk Factors—The value of the securities prior to maturity will fluctuate based on many unpredictable factors” in this pricing supplement, but not including our or Citigroup Inc.’s creditworthiness. These inputs may be market-observable or may be based on assumptions made by CGMI in its discretionary judgment.

 

For a period of approximately three months following issuance of the securities, the price, if any, at which CGMI would be willing to buy the securities from investors, and the value that will be indicated for the securities on any brokerage account statements prepared by CGMI or its affiliates (which value CGMI may also publish through one or more financial information vendors), will reflect a temporary upward adjustment from the price or value that would otherwise be determined. This temporary upward adjustment represents a portion of the hedging profit expected to be realized by CGMI or its affiliates over the term of the securities. The amount of this temporary upward adjustment will decline to zero on a straight-line basis over the three-month temporary adjustment period. However, CGMI is not obligated to buy the securities from investors at any time. See “Summary Risk Factors—The securities will not be listed on any securities exchange and you may not be able to sell them prior to maturity.”
