AIG Announces Pricing Of Sale Of Ordinary Shares Of AIA Group Limited

Stocks in this article: AIG

American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG) announced today that it has priced the sale of approximately 591.9 million ordinary shares of AIA Group Limited (AIA) by means of a placing to certain institutional investors. Immediately following the sale, AIA Aurora LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of AIG, expects to transfer all of its remaining interest in AIA to its parent, AIG.

Upon the closing of the placing, which is scheduled for September 11, 2012, and is subject to customary closing conditions, AIG will receive gross proceeds of approximately US$2 billion, based upon a purchase price of HK$26.50 (approximately US$3.42) per share. AIG expects to use the net proceeds from the placing of AIA ordinary shares for general corporate purposes, which may include share repurchases or other capital management. Under the terms of an agreement with the managers of the placing, AIG is restricted from selling any of its remaining ordinary shares of AIA until December 10, 2012, subject to certain exceptions, including receiving prior consent of certain lead managers of the placing.

The ordinary shares have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), or any other applicable law, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and any other applicable law.

Additionally, AIG’s Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of shares of AIG’s Common Stock, par value US$2.50 per share, in an aggregate amount of up to US$5 billion. This authorization replaces all prior Common Stock repurchase authorizations and is limited to repurchases from the United States Department of the Treasury. There can be no assurance that the United States Department of the Treasury will effect such an offering of Common Stock, or the amount of Common Stock, if any, that AIG may repurchase in connection therewith.
