Summary Terms
Issuer: Citigroup Global Markets Holdings Inc.
Guarantor: Citigroup Inc.
Underlying shares: Shares of common stock of Netflix, Inc. (ticker symbol: “NFLX”)
Stated principal amount: $10 per security
Pricing date: October 29, 2021
Issue date: November 3, 2021
Valuation dates: Expected to be January 31, 2022, April 29, 2022, July 29, 2022, October 31, 2022, January 30, 2023, May 1, 2023, July 31, 2023, October 30, 2023, January 29, 2024, April 29, 2024, July 29, 2024 and October 29, 2024 (the “final valuation date”), each subject to postponement if such date is not a scheduled trading day or if certain market disruption events occur.
Maturity date: Unless earlier redeemed, November 1, 2024
Contingent coupon payment dates: For each valuation date, the third business day after such valuation date, except that the contingent coupon payment date for the final valuation date will be the maturity date
Contingent coupon: On each quarterly contingent coupon payment date, unless previously redeemed, the securities will pay a contingent coupon equal to 2.125% of the stated principal amount of the securities (approximately 8.50% per annum) if and only if the closing price of the underlying shares on the related valuation date is greater than or equal to the downside threshold price.  If the closing price of the underlying shares on any quarterly valuation date is less than the downside threshold price, you will not receive any contingent coupon payment on the related contingent coupon payment date.
Payment at maturity1:

If the securities are not automatically redeemed prior to maturity, for each $10 stated principal amount security you hold at maturity, you will receive cash in an amount determined as follows:

·     If the final share price is greater than or equal to the downside threshold price: $10 + the contingent coupon payment due at maturity

·     If the final share price is less than the downside threshold price: $10 + ($10 × the share return)

If the final share price is less than the downside threshold price, you will receive less, and possibly significantly less, than 75.00% of the stated principal amount of your securities at maturity, and you will not receive any contingent coupon payment at maturity.

Automatic early redemption: If, on any potential redemption date, the closing price of the underlying shares is greater than or equal to the initial share price, each security you then hold will be automatically redeemed on the related contingent coupon payment date for an amount in cash equal to the early redemption payment.  If the securities are redeemed, no further payments will be made.
Early redemption payment: The stated principal amount of $10 per security plus the related contingent coupon payment
Potential redemption dates: Each quarterly valuation date beginning in January 2022 and ending in July 2024
Initial share price: The closing price of the underlying shares on the pricing date
Final share price: The closing price of the underlying shares on the final valuation date
Downside threshold price: 75.00% of the initial share price
Share return: On any valuation date, (i) the closing price on that valuation date minus the initial share price, divided by (ii) the initial share price
CUSIP/ISIN: 17329T773 / US17329T7735

Risk Considerations

The risks set forth below are discussed in more detail in the “Summary Risk Factors” section in the accompanying preliminary pricing supplement. Please review those risk factors carefully prior to making an investment decision.

· You may lose a significant portion or all of your investment.

· The securities may be automatically redeemed prior to maturity, limiting your opportunity to receive contingent coupon payments.

· The securities offer downside exposure to the underlying shares, but no upside exposure to the underlying shares.

· The value of the securities prior to maturity will fluctuate based on many unpredictable factors.

· Immediately following issuance, any secondary market bid price provided by Citigroup Global Market Inc., and the value that will be indicated on any brokerage account statements prepared by Citigroup Global Market Inc. or its affiliates, will reflect a temporary upward adjustment.

· Governmental regulatory actions, such as sanctions, could adversely affect your investment in the securities.
