Fortis is pleased to announce that, following the announcement made on 8 January 2007, it has completed the acquisition of Captive Finance Limited. This transaction gives Fortis Lease Group a foothold in seven new countries in Europe and Asia.

Captive Finance is an independent finance company specialised in vendor lease financing with strong positions in the IT, telecom and high technology sectors. Founded in 2000 in Hong Kong where it is headquartered, Captive Finance is active in Asia (Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore) and in Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark).

Philippe Delva, CEO of Fortis Lease Group, commented: "The closing of this acquisition marks an important milestone for Fortis Lease Group in its efforts to build a truly international network in the leasing sector. Besides giving Fortis Lease access to seven new countries - each with tremendous growth potential - Captive has developed some unique skills, among which strong remarketing capabilities for the leased equipment.''

The total value of Captive's Asian portfolio has grown strongly over the past year, rising to a contract value of USD 64.4 million (EUR 47.9 million), or up 19.8% from a year ago. Singapore and Malaysia were the two key drivers of growth in new leases in Asia.

This acquisition is in line with Fortis's strategy to grow in Europe and selectively in Asia and North America. Fortis recently strengthened its presence in Asia through its joint venture agreement for bancassurance in India, and in March 2007 with the acquisition of a majority stake in PCI, a Hong Kong-based major life insurer.

New York, NY -- Citigroup Inc. today reported net income for the 2007 first quarter of $5.01 billion, or $1.01 per share. Results include a previously disclosed charge of $1.38 billion, or $871 million after-tax, related to a structural expense review conducted during the quarter. Excluding the charge, net income was $5.88 billion, or $1.18 per share. Return on common equity was 17.1%.

"We generated strong momentum this quarter, with revenues increasing 15% to a record, driven by growing customer business volumes. Global consumer deposits were up 12% and global consumer loans grew 11%. In our international franchises, revenues grew 18%, led by international markets & banking revenue up 20%. Our revenue growth combined with improving expense management and, after adjusting for certain non-recurring items, we generated positive operating leverage. Offsetting our improved revenue and expense performance were higher credit costs and a lower level of tax benefits
