    Techticker:Citigroup's Clever Plan to Screw Taxpayers AgainPosted Feb 23, 2009 11:29am EST by From The Business Insider, Feb. 23, 2009:So Citigroup (C) has proposed that the US taayxper and other preferred shareholders convert up to $75 billion of preferred stock into common stock, thus bolstering the company's tangible equity and putting it in less desperate need of a complete takeover.And what will the US taayxper get for this preferred stock conversion? 40% of the company for some of its $45 billion of preferred, say reports. The reports add that Citigroup's goal here is to keep the US's ownership under 50%, so this won't be a de facto nationalization.Well, that's nice for Citigroup and another ream-job for taayxpers.Citigroup's common equity is currently worth $10 billion. If the US were to convert all $45 billion of its preferred at the current stock price, it should end up with 80% of the company, not 40%. For the US to convert $45 billion of preferred to common and only get 40% of the company, Citigroup's existing common equity would have to be valued at $65 billion, not $10 billion, and the conversion price would have to be about $10 a share. Or the US would only be able to convert $4 billion of its $45 billion, which wouldn't help Citigroup's tangible equity ratio much.So is that what Citigroup is trying to do here? Persuade the US goverment to convert to common stock at a price miles above the current trading price, screwing the US taayxper yet again?Or does Citigroup have some other secret plan up its sleeve whereby it can take up to $75 billion of debt (preferred stock) off its books and not end up diluting its current shareholders 90%? http://ueajak.com [url=http://qxegglsu.com]qxegglsu[/url] [link=http://svkdxlmd.com]svkdxlmd[/link]
