NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 10, 2012--
American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG) today announced that the
U.S. Department of the Treasury (Treasury) has priced an offering of
approximately 553.8 million shares of its AIG common stock at the
initial public offering price of $32.50 per share. Treasury has also
granted a 30-day option to the underwriters for the offering to purchase
up to an additional approximately 83.1 million shares to cover
over-allotments, if any. In connection with Treasury’s offering, AIG has
agreed to purchase approximately 153.8 million shares of AIG common
stock in the offering at the initial public offering price for an
aggregate purchase amount of approximately $5 billion.
“This offering, Treasury’s largest to date, makes America whole on its
investments in AIG plus a profit,” said Robert H. Benmosche, AIG
President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are close to achieving what
most outside AIG thought unimaginable. The people of AIG never lost
faith, kept working, and are grateful for being given the chance to make
good on this goal.”
Treasury currently owns approximately 53.4 percent of AIG’s common stock
outstanding. Assuming completion of this offering and a $5 billion share
repurchase at the initial public offering price of $32.50 per share,
Treasury would own approximately 21.5 percent of AIG’s common stock then
outstanding (approximately 15.9 percent if the over-allotment option is
exercised in full).
Citigroup, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Goldman, Sachs & Co., and J.P.
Morgan Securities LLC have been retained as joint global coordinators
for the offering. BofA Merrill Lynch, Barclays Capital Inc., Morgan
Stanley & Co. LLC, RBC Capital Markets, LLC, UBS Securities LLC, Wells
Fargo Securities, LLC and Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC have been
retained as joint book-runners for the offering.
