Citibank’s head count down to about 250,000, down by a third since before the financial crisis in 2007. The bank’s shares increased more than 6 percent on Wednesday. The moves, the first since Michael O’Neill, the bank chairman, abruptly deposed Vikram S. Pandit as chief executive and replaced him with Michael L. Corbat, were seen as another retrenchment from Citi’s former position as a financial megamarket in the United States and around the world. But the announcement did not signal a new strategy or direction for the nation’s third-biggest bank by assets. “Ultimately, it misses the point,” said Michael Mayo, an analyst at Crédit Agricole Securities. “They need a more radical restructuring.” Since the abrupt power change in October, which sent shock waves across Wall Street and left some within the bank rankled by the brutal transition, there has been unease throughout the upper ranks of Citigroup, according to several people close to the bank. Much of that wariness stemmed from a concern that Mr. O’Neill would work through the new chief executive to impose an unflinching round of cuts that further pare down the bank, according to these people. A career banker and Marine, Mr. O’Neill had tussled with Mr. Pandit over the lack of speed in trimming costs after taking the helm of the board in 2009, according to several people close to the board. The latest cuts come after exhaustive meetings in November that convened nearly every head of the bank’s......

An Assertmaant in Goudiya Vaisnava Theology bless his disciple Krsna dasa. One of his ankle bells flew off and fell 4 miles away in a pond near that disciple's house. The pond is called Nupurkunda and the ankle bell can still be seen on display there in the village of Akaihati. He told Srinvasa Acharya that the future of Vaishnavism in Bengal would look bleak because of factionalism. But later he blessed Srinivasa that he would generate a revival of the SK movement. At the end of his life he entered nama-kirtana continuously for 3 days. On the 4th day he chanted 'Sri Krsna Chaitanya' repeatedly and left his body. Pundarika Vidyanidhi: He was King Vrishabhanu in Vrajalila. A rich landowner. Disciple of Madhavendra Puri. Good friend of Madhava Mishra, father of Gadadhara Pandit. G.P. took diksha from him. Even before they met Mahaprabhu called out his name, "Oh my father" while in kirtana. L.C. called him Premnidhi. Good friend of Swarupa Damodara. Gadadhara went with Mukunda datta to see him because Mahaprabhu had said that G.P. (who was very attached to Srimad Bhagavatam) should learn S.B, from P.V. P.V. was sitting on an opulent bed, wearing fancy silk clothes and was even smoking a hookah. G.P. doubted him, but M.D. sang a verse from S.B. and P.V. fell off his bed, crying in ecstacy.

...the relative ease in which a company can manipulate the classification of their leases, it makes it hard for creditors to make valued judgements of a company’s balance sheet. The current guidelines of AASB 117 require a company to classify its leases as either a finance lease or an operating lease. Only finance leases are required to be disclosed on a company’s statement of financial position with operating leases being excluded. This is one potential issue arising for creditors as the balance sheet might therefore be an unreliable measure of a company’s financial position. Operating leases are a form of off-balance sheet reporting that “potentially enhances the appearance of firm performance and financial position” (Altamuro, Johnston, Pandit & Zhang, 2014). Dhaliwal, Lee & Neamtiu (2011) state that “Operating leases are, for many companies, the largest type of off- balance sheet items” which truly shows the difficulty for creditors to make an accurate evaluation of a firm’s statement of financial position. Firms can easily manipulate the types of leases they are involved with so that they are recorded as operating leases, which does not provide creditors and other users of their financial statements with a reliable outlook on the company’s financial position (Deegan, 2012). With a proposal to change the current standard surrounding leases, creditors will be able to make better evaluations of a firm’s statement of financial position. The proposed revision of the......

Quotation Reflection

...76). Pi bumps into his Imam, Pandit and Priest where they criticize the faults of the opposing religion and force their own religion upon him. Out of frustration, Pi blurts out the famous Mahatma Gandhi (who was also a follower of the Hinduism religion) quote, which explains that every religion is true; it is just the way one understands and believes in it. I chose this quote because I can connect with Gandhi’s beliefs through what Pi is saying. The Hindu religion itself has over hundreds of thousands of Gods, which divide into smaller beliefs/practices such as Sikh, Jainism etc. Pi’s lines also allows me to reflect how people in society have become so diverse in what they believe in that they blind themselves in their own beliefs/values disregarding the religious views of others. Ever since the day I was born, I was raised in a Hindu family following the morals and values that were passed on from my ancestors to my parents. As a young child, I always had a belief that that the Hindu religion is the superior of all religion since it is the third largest religion and has over one billion adherents (Religion Facts). I resided in Toronto in my early childhood where I interacted with people from different cultures and religion. I always looked at them in a different way comparing them to the values and morals that I was taught. This part of my life represents the first three stages of the heroic quest pattern. At the age of 6, I was introduced to a Pandit (defined as priest in......

Ceo Compensation

...Washington, April 21 — Citigroup's Indian American CEO Vikram Pandit and its directors have been sued by a bank shareholder over a compensation package that was contested by investors in a rare failed "say-on-pay" vote. A lawsuit filed in Manhattan Friday (April 20th) by shareholder Stanley Moskal says Pandit and directors breached their fiduciary duties by awarding more than $54 million of compensation in 2011 to the executives. That pay included $15 million to Pandit, which as the suit says "represented a raise of 1,499,999,900 percent over his 2010 compensation", in a year when the bank's share price fell 44 percent. Pandit was also awarded $10 million of retention pay that vests after 2013. The suit followed vote by Citi's shareholders at the bank's annual meeting in Dallas after critics complained Pandit and other top bank officials enjoy high pay that's not well connected to increasing shareholder value. At issue is what shareholders believe are undeserving compensation packages despite poor performance. In addition to its stock taking a big hit in 2011, Citi failed the Fed's stress test this year. The pay proposal received just 45 percent of votes cast and followed Citigroup's announcement on Monday that profit fell 2 percent to $2.9 billion from a year earlier, missing analyst expectations. The vote is not binding. Citi says the suit is baseless and plans to seek its dismissal. In an earning call with analysts Pandit said he wasn't sure yet about whether or not the......

New Leaders

...SIVs have claim on the underlying collateral; the structure is some time known as bankruptcy remote structure and investors of SIV are willing to accept less return for lower credit risk. SIVs or SPEs are methods of off balance sheet financing and the users of financial statements are prone to underestimate the credit and market risk faced by the company as the loan does not appear on the balance sheet of the company as in the case of famous Enron Scandal. The business is less transparent in terms of assumed risk to the investors and the credit rating agencies. On the other hand use of SIVs increase profitability by lowering the borrowing costs. There is a trade-off between transparency and profitability hence value of the firm. Vikram Pandit, newly appointed CEO of Citi decided to include the SIV on the balance sheet in order to improve the credibility and transparency of company’s assets in the eyes of investor and rating agencies. Write Offs and the Way Forward The prudence concept is the underlying principle of financial statements. According to prudence concept, losses are written off as soon as these are foreseen but profits are not recognizes until these are realized. When financial giants like Citi and Merrill recognized the losses incurred to stale investments in CDOs it adversely affected profitability and hence their market value. Although they were not at the verge of bankruptcy by the virtue of their multi trillion balance sheet footing but......
