Since the beginning of 2021, Citigroup (NYSE: C) has been working on a multiyear plan to modernize and simplify the bank, focus on better-performing businesses, and ultimately boost returns, which management hopes will lead to a higher valuation and stock price. A key part of this plan had been selling the consumer, small business, and middle-market banking arm in Citigroup's Mexican subsidiary, Citibanamex, which has been a high-performing business. Citigroup has been divesting most of its international consumer banking franchises that lack adequate scale.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Friday said the government could acquire up to half of the Mexican unit of Citigroup after the U.S. bank announced plans this week to pursue an initial public offering of the business. Citi said Wednesday it was abandoning earlier plans for a sale of its Mexican unit, known as Banamex, for an IPO, prompting Lopez Obrador to announce that the government could invest in the business and had up to $3 billion to do so. The president, who said the government had expected to earn around $2 billion in taxes from the estimated $7 billion sale of Banamex, returned on Friday to the possibility of taking a large stake alongside Mexican shareholders.

Citigroup Inc scrapped a $7-billion sale of its Mexican consumer unit and will list it instead, in a surprise move that delays the bank's overhaul and will likely feed into investor anxiety about the country's leftist president. Citi said it plans to list the business, called Banamex, in 2025 and resume a "modest level of share buybacks" this quarter. The bank is considering a dual stock listing, possibly in Mexico City and New York, for the unit, two sources familiar with the matter said.
NEW YORK, May 24, 2023--Citi today announced it will pursue an initial public offering (IPO) of its consumer, small business and middle-market banking operations in Mexico (the "Business") following the planned separation of its leading institutional business that will remain part of Citi. As previously disclosed, Citi had been pursuing a dual process to exit the Business, including preparation for a possible IPO, with a commitment to deliver maximum value to its shareholders.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's administration is studying the possibility of buying a majority of shares in Citigroup's local retail unit known as Banamex, according to a government statement published on Tuesday. Buying it would be "good business," Lopez Obrador said in a press conference earlier, when asked about rumors that one of the bidders, Grupo Mexico's owner German Larrea, was dropping out of the process amid a dispute with the government. Lopez Obrador said he thought about the possibility of creating a public-private association with U.S.-based Citigroup to operate the bank after hearing about Larrea's alleged withdrawal.
