New York -- Citigroup Inc. today reported a net loss for the 2007 fourth quarter of $9.83 billion, or $1.99 per share. Results include $18.1 billion in pre-tax write-downs and credit costs on sub-prime related direct exposures in fixed income markets, and a $4.1 billion increase in credit costs in U.S. consumer primarily related to higher current and estimated losses on consumer loans. For the full year 2007, net income was $3.62 billion, or $0.72 per share.

"Our financial results this quarter are clearly unacceptable. Our poor performance was driven primarily by two factors -- significant write-downs and losses on our sub-prime direct exposures in fixed income markets, and a large increase in credit costs in our U.S. consumer loan portfolio.
