NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Citigroup Funding Inc. today announced that it will implement a 1-for-10 reverse split of its C-Tracks Exchange-Traded Notes Based on the Performance of the Citi Volatility Index Total Return Due November 12, 2020 (the “C-Tracks”), effective January 2, 2013. The C-Tracks, with ticker symbol “CVOL,” began trading on the NYSE Arca on November 15, 2010.
“Valuation of the C-Tracks—Split or Reverse Split of the C-Tracks”
The closing indicative value of the C-Tracks on December 31, 2012 will be multiplied by ten to determine the reverse-split adjusted closing indicative value of the C-Tracks. The reverse split will be effective at the open of trading on January 2, 2013 and the C-Tracks will begin trading on the NYSE Arca on a reverse-split adjusted basis on such date. The reverse-split adjusted C-Tracks will have a new CUSIP (17318Q475), but will retain the same ticker symbol.
As of January 4, 2013, holders who hold a number of C-Tracks that is not evenly divisible by ten will receive one reverse-split adjusted C-Track for every ten C-Tracks held and a cash payment for any odd number of C-Tracks remaining (the “partials”). The cash amount due on any partials will be determined on January 11, 2013, based on the closing indicative value of the reverse-split adjusted C-Tracks on such date and will be paid on January 18, 2013.
For more information regarding the reverse split process, see the pricing supplement relating to the C-Tracks under the heading “Valuation of the C-Tracks—Split or Reverse Split of the C-Tracks”. The pricing supplement can be found on EDGAR, the SEC website at: www.sec.gov.
