Citigroup to spin off its Mexico business after efforts to sell unit collapse

Citigroup Inc. announced on Wednesday that it would pursue an initial public offering (IPO) of its Mexico business Banamex. The bank expects to complete the separation in the second half of 2024, with a public offering likely to follow in 2025, according to a release.

Citigroup CEO Jane Fraser said in the release, “After careful consideration, we concluded the optimal path to maximizing the value of Banamex for our shareholders and advancing our goal to simplify our firm is to pivot from our dual path approach to focus solely on an IPO of the business.”

Citigroup bought Banamex for $12.5 billion in 2001, and the bank currently has around 1,300 branches, more than 12 million retail clients, and around 10 million pension fund customers, with around 38,000 employees.

The bank had originally planned to sell or IPO Banamex back in January of 2022, and recent media reports suggested that a deal to sell the business was nearing completion with a valuation of around $7 billion. However, the bank ultimately decided that an IPO would be the best strategy for maximizing the value of Banamex for shareholders.

Fraser has been pursuing a strategy of simplifying Citigroup’s business since taking over as CEO in March of 2021, and one of her first moves was to announce a reduction in the bank’s global footprint.

Citigroup has not yet decided on a listing destination for Banamex, but a dual listing in Mexico and the United States is a possibility, according to a source familiar with the plans.
