Financial Law     updated  2008/11/24 07:10


The government unveiled a plan Sunday to rescue troubled Citigroup, including taking a $20 billion stake in the firm whose stock has been hammered on worries about its financial health.

In addition, the government will guarantee as much as $306 billion of risky loans and securities backed by commercial and residential mortgages.

The announcement was made by the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The government was weighing a plan on Sunday to rescue Citigroup Inc., whose stock has been hammered on worries about its financial health.

The Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve have been in discussions over the weekend to devise a strategy to stabilize the company, according to people familiar with the talks. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions were ongoing.

One option being considered is taking some of the risky assets held by Citigroup off its balance sheet, a move that would give the company more breathing room and put it in a better position to raise capital. It was unclear, however, exactly how that option might be structured, the people said. Another option would be for the government to make another cash injection into the company.
