American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG) announced today that it
has priced the sale in Hong Kong of approximately 1.65 billion ordinary
shares of AIA Group Limited (AIA) by means of a placing to certain
institutional investors within the price range of HK$29.65
(approximately US$3.83 per share) to HK$30.65 (approximately US$3.95 per
share). The exact price will be disclosed before the opening of the Hong
Kong market on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 Hong Kong time. This

The ordinary shares have not been and will not be registered under the

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.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the
solicitation of an offer to buy the ordinary shares, nor shall there be
any sale of the ordinary shares in any jurisdiction in which such offer,
solicitation, or sale would be unlawful. This press release is not for
distribution or release in or into the Hong Kong Special Administrative
Region of the People’s Republic of China.
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 AIG will be able to complete
the placing of the AIA ordinary shares, or, if completed, what the net
proceeds will be from the placing. 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,
