American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG) confirmed today that it is in discussions to sell a 90 percent interest in International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) to an investor group led by New China Trust Co. Ltd., New China Life Insurance Co. Ltd. and P3 Investments Ltd., together with China Aviation Industrial Fund and an investment arm of ICBC International. AIG has consistently stated that ILFC is a non-core asset. Any possible transaction involving ILFC would be subject to required regulatory approvals, including those in the U.S. and China, and customary closing conditions. This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In particular, no assurance can be given that a sale of ILFC will be consummated or, if consummated, regarding the terms thereof. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts but instead represent only AIG’s belief regarding future events, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside AIG’s control. Except for AIG’s ongoing obligation to disclose material information as required by federal securities laws, AIG is not under any obligation (and expressly disclaims any obligation) to update or alter any projections, goals, assumptions, or other statements, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Factors that could cause these forward-looking statements to differ, possibly materially, from that currently contemplated include the factors set forth in AIG’s filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. American International Group, Inc. (AIG) is a leading international insurance organization serving customers in more than 130 countries and jurisdictions. AIG companies serve commercial, institutional, and individual customers through one of the most extensive worldwide property-casualty networks of any insurer.
