Citigroup lent $585 million through Banco Nacional de Mexico, or Banamex, to Oceanografia, a Mexican oil services company, through an accounts receivable financing program. Oceanografia has been a chief supplier to Pemex, the Mexican state-owned oil company. Citigroup later discovered that Oceanografia had been suspended by the government from winning new contracts and began reviewing the financing program. Based on that review, Citigroup estimated that only $185 million of the $585 million of accounts receivables owed to Banamex were valid at the end of the year, the bank said in its statement. As a result, Citigroup said it would book an estimated $235 million after-tax charge against its earnings, reducing net income for 2013 to $13.7 billion from $13.9 billion.
