NEW YORK, June 26, 2007 - American International Group, Inc. (AIG) hereby announces the intended cancellation of its secondary listing of ordinary shares on the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and from trading on the London Stock Exchange's market for listed securities. It is intended that there will also be a cancellation of the secondary listing of its ordinary shares from the SWX Swiss Exchange and Euronext Paris (subject to necessary approvals). In the case of Euronext Paris, AIG intends to submit a request to its Board of Directors in the near future and, prior to any cancellation of listing, will offer shareholders holding ordinary shares through Euroclear Paris the right for a certain period of time to sell their ordinary shares at no cost on the New York Stock Exchange.

The decision to cancel the listing of the ordinary shares is as a result of the limited amount of trading on this particular market and the benefits to AIG of additional liquidity being out-weighed by the administrative burden of maintaining the listing. Following the cancellation of the listing (and if the cancellation of the listings on the SWX Swiss Exchange and Euronext Paris is effected), shareholders will still be able to trade American International Group, Inc.'s ordinary shares on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange. The last day of trading of the ordinary shares on the London Stock Exchange will be 26 July 2007.

American International Group, Inc. (AIG), world leaders in insurance and financial services, is the leading international insurance organization with operations in more than 130 countries and jurisdictions. AIG companies serve commercial, institutional and individual customers through the most extensive worldwide property-casualty and life insurance networks of any insurer. In addition, AIG companies are leading providers of retirement services, financial services and asset management around the world. AIG's common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, as well as the stock exchanges in London, Paris, Switzerland and Tokyo.
