Citigroup (C) said Monday that its net income dropped in the second quarter after it took a $3.8 billion charge to settle claims over its risky subprime mortgage business.

The charge pushed down its net income to $181 million from $4.18 billion a year earlier.

On a per-share basis, net income was 3 cents, compared with $1.34 in the second-quarter a year earlier.

Excluding the charges and an accounting loss, the bank's second-quarter profit rose 1 percent to $3.93 billion, or $1.24 a share. That beat the $1.06 a share predicted by analysts polled by FactSet.

Revenue was $19.4 billion, excluding the accounting loss, compared with $20 billion a year earlier.

The bank's stock rose $1.71, or 3.6 percent, to $48.72 or midday trading Monday.
