Citigroup reported first-quarter earnings before the opening bell Friday.

Here’s what the company reported compared with what Wall Street analysts surveyed by LSEG were expecting:

  • Earnings: $1.58 per share, which may not compare with expected $1.23
  • Revenue: $21.10 billion, vs. expected $20.4 billion

Citigroup CEO Jane Fraser has finished her sweeping corporate overhaul, including thousands of layoffs — now what?

Fraser has said that the impact to employees would be complete by March, and that the firm would give an update to severance expenses along with first-quarter results.

Last year, Fraser announced plans to simplify the management structure and reduce costs at the third-biggest U.S. bank by assets. Now, analysts want to know if Citigroup can maintain its previous guidance for full-year revenue and expense targets.

JPMorgan Chase reported results earlier Friday, and Goldman Sachs reports on Monday.
