Selected Risks • You may not receive any return on your investment in the notes. You will receive a positive return on your investment in the notes only if the index appreciates from the initial index level to the final index level. If the final index level of the index is less than the initial index level, you will receive only the stated principal amount for each note you hold at maturity. • The notes do not pay interest. • Your payment at maturity depends on the closing level of the index on a single day. • The notes are subject to the credit risk of Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc. and Citigroup Inc. If Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc. defaults on its obligations under the notes and Citigroup Inc. defaults on its guarantee obligations, you may not receive anything owed to you under the notes. • Sale of the notes prior to maturity may result in a loss of principal. • The notes will not be listed on any securities exchange and you may not be able to sell them prior to maturity. • The estimated val ue of the notes on the pricing date will be less than the issue price. For more information about the estimated value of the notes, see the accompanying preliminary pricing supplement. • The value of the notes prior to maturity will fluctuate based on many unpredictable factors. • The issuer and its affiliates may have conflicts of interest with you. • There is uncertainty about the future of 3 - month U.S. dollar LIBOR. If the Index Administrator determines that 3 - month U.S. dollar LIBOR has been discontinued or is no longer widely relied upon by market participants as a benchmark interest rate, the Index Administrator may select a successor rate to be substituted for 3 - month U.S. dollar LIBOR. In that event, Index performance based on the successor rate may be less favorable than it would have been based on 3 - month U.S. dollar LIBOR. • The Index is premised on a particular investment thesis about the relationship between the prevailing interest rate environment and the relative performance of different sectors of the U.S. equity market. That investment thesis may be wrong. The assumed relationship may not in fact exist, or if it exists it may be too weak to be meaningful. If the Index’s investment thesis is wrong or too weak to be meaningful, the Equity Allocation may perform no better than, and in fact may materially underperform, any other allocation that could be made among the equity sector ETFs or the broader market. The offering of the notes is not an expression of our view about the validity of the Index’s investment thesis. You should form your own independent view about the validity of the Index’s investment thesis in connection with your evaluation of the notes. • Even if a meaningful relationship exists between the prevailing interest rate environment and the relative performance of different sectors of the U.S. equity market, the particular rules that make up the Index methodology may not effectively capitalize on that relationship. • The Index only seeks to partially implement its investment thesis. At any point in time, the Index is likely to have a significant allocation to the Treasury Futures Allocation and/or the Cash Allocation. That allocation is intended to help the Index maintain its volatility target of 5%, and is not in furtherance of its investment thesis. In fact, because the U.S. Treasury note futures indices are likely to be adversely affected by rising interest rates, the allocation to the Treasury Futures Allocation may run counter to the Index’s investment thesis. • The Index is likely to significantly underperform the equity markets in a rising equity market, because the Index is likely to have a significant allocation to the Treasury Futures Allocation and/or Cash Allocation at all times. • The Index will likely have significant exposure at all times to one of two U.S. Treasury note futures indices. Each U.S. Treasury note futures index has limited return potential and significant downside potential, particularly in a “Rising” interest rate environment. • The excess return deduction and index fee will place a drag on the performance of the Index, offsetting any appreciation of the U.S. Treasury notes underlying the U.S. Treasury note futures index and the equity sector ETFs that make up the Equity Allocation, exacerbating any depreciation and causing the level of the Index to decline steadily if the value of those U.S. Treasury notes and/or equity sector ETFs remains relatively constant. • The Index was launched on February 20, 2019 and, therefore, has a limited performance history. The above summary of selected risks does not describe all of the risks associated with an investment in the notes. You should read the preliminary pricing supplement and index supplement for a more complete description of risks relating to the notes. Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc. Guaranteed by Citigroup Inc. Key Features of the Index • Created by Citigroup Global Markets Limited and launched on February 20, 2019. • Tracks hypothetical performance of a rules - based investment methodology premised on the idea that there is a relationship between the prevailing interest rate environment and the relative performance of different sectors of the U.S. equity and Treasury markets. Seeks to implement the thesis that the energy , financials and information technology sectors may outperform the broader market in rising interest rate environment, and the utilities , consumer staples and health care sectors may outperform the broader market in falling or flat interest rate environment. • Reflects performance of a hypothetical investment portfolio (“ Selected Portfolio ”), adjusted daily, consisting of hypothetical allocations to three equity sector ETFs (“ Equity Allocation ”), U.S. Treasury note futures (“ Treasury Futures Allocation ”) and, potentially, uninvested cash (“ Cash Allocation ”). Components of the Selected Portfolio are determined daily depending on whether the prevailing interest rate environment is determined to be “Rising” or “Not Rising”, as follows: Interest Rate Environment Rising Not Rising Equity Allocation Equity Allocation Energy Select Sector SPDR ® Fund (XLE) Utilities Select Sector SPDR ® Fund (XLU) Financial Select Sector SPDR ® Fund (XLF) Consumer Staples Select Sector SPDR ® Fund (XLP) Technology Select Sector SPDR ® Fund (XLK) Health Care Select Sector SPDR ® Fund (XLV) Treasury Futures Allocation Treasury Futures Allocation Citi Interest Rate 2Y US Treasury Futures Market Tracker Index Citi Interest Rate 10Y US Treasury Futures Market Tracker Index Cash Allocation Cash Allocation • Identifies prevailing interest environment on each day by observing average rate of 3 - month U.S. dollar LIBOR for each month in the immediately preceding four months. If average rate of 3 - month U.S. dollar LIBOR increased from each month to the next in that four - month period, the interest rate environment will be “ Rising ”. In all other circumstances, it will be “ Not Rising ”. • Determines how much exposure to allocate to each of the Equity Allocation, the Treasury Futures Allocation and the Cash Allocation on a daily basis in an attempt to maintain a 5% target volatility. • Allocates exposure between Equity Allocation and Treasury Futures Allocation (together, the “Invested Allocation” ) based on the volatility of the current Equity Allocation over the prior six months, with higher volatility resulting in a lower Equity Allocation, and vice versa. Equity sector ETFs are equally weighted within the Equity Allocation. • Allocates exposure between the Invested Allocation and the Cash Allocation based on the volatility of the Invested Allocation over the prior one month. Will, if necessary, reduce exposure to the Invested Allocation and increase exposure to the Cash Allocation in an attempt to maintain a rolling one - month Selected Portfolio volatility of 5%. • Performance of each U.S. Treasury note futures index is expected to be reduced by an implicit financing cost. In addition, a rate equal to the federal funds effective rate will be deducted from the daily performance of each equity sector ETF. We refer to this deduction, together with the implicit financing cost reflected in each U.S. Treasury note futures index, as the “excess return deduction”. • Index fee of 0.75% per annum is deducted daily from Index performance.
