AIG Reports Fourth Quarter 2013 Net Income Attributable To AIG Of $2.0 Billion And Diluted Earnings Per Share Of $1.34

“I am also pleased to announce the Board’s capital management decisions to increase AIG’s quarterly dividend by 25 percent and authorize the repurchase of up to an additional $1.0 billion worth of AIG Common Stock, both of which reaffirm the Board’s confidence in our strategy and allow us to return a portion of our success directly to our shareholders,” added Mr. Benmosche.

“Our profits illustrate the individual and combined earnings power of all three of our core insurance operations, as well as our ongoing commitment to capital management,” continued Mr. Benmosche. “With another year of solid performance under our belts, I am confident that we have positioned ourselves for strong growth and profitability in all of our operating businesses. Most importantly, this foundation will enable us to focus our energy on our customers.

“In addition, our fourth quarter severance charge represents another step in AIG’s continued transformation. We are increasingly a more agile, focused, and sustainable company. As we think about the long-term future of our company, we must be able to more efficiently meet and exceed the evolving expectations of our global customer base,” Mr. Benmosche concluded.

AIG Property Casualty’s growth in pre-tax operating income is attributable to an improvement in underwriting results and an increase in net investment income, partially offset by the impact of higher severe losses. As a result of AIG’s continued focus on capital management and legal entity simplification, AIG Property Casualty distributed $2.6 billion in cash dividends to AIG Parent during the fourth quarter of 2013, and a total of $4.1 billion for the full year of 2013.
