NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Citigroup Inc. announced today that it will early redeem its C-Tracks Exchange-Traded Notes Based on the Citi Volatility Index Total Return (NYSE Arca: CVOL) Due November 12, 2020 on May 24, 2016.
Citigroup expects to deliver notice via The Depository Trust Company of the early redemption of CVOL no later than May 10, 2016. Investors will receive a cash payment per ETN equal to the sum of the index exposure and notional cash amount determined over the Mandatory Redemption Valuation Period. The Mandatory Redemption Valuation Period is expected to be between May 16, 2016 and May 20, 2016 inclusive. The calculation of the index exposure and notional cash amount during this period simulates a proportionate allocation from index exposure to cash on a daily basis. This means the value of CVOL will not be based entirely on the fluctuations of the underlying index during this period and investors will not entirely benefit from increases in the value of the underlying index as the notional cash amount increases relative to the index exposure amount. Moreover, even for the calculated cash position represented by the notional cash amount, investors will not be compensated for any interest or time value of money during this period prior to their receiving the payment upon redemption. Payments will be made to investors on May 24, 2016. The last day of trading for CVOL will be May 23, 2016.
None of the other ETNs offered by Citigroup are affected by this announcement.
