 December 10, 2012 09:51 AM

(By Balachander) Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) announced plans to upsize its offers to purchase twelve series of outstanding notes to up to $1.195 billion from $910 million, saying the move reflects its "continued robust liquidity provision."

Year-to-date, the bank has reduced its long-term debt by roughly $13.9 billion.

Citigroup said it will continue to consider opportunities to repurchase its long-term as well as short-term debt based on several factors. This includes including without limitation the economic value, potential impact on Citigroup's net interest margin and borrowing costs and the overall remaining tenor of its debt portfolio.
