NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2016--
American International Group, Inc. (NYSE:AIG) announced today that it
has priced the sale of 740 million ordinary H shares of PICC Property
and Casualty Company Limited (PICC P&C) by means of a placing to
Upon the closing of the placing, which is scheduled for May 5, 2016, and
is subject to customary closing conditions, AIG will receive gross
proceeds of approximately US$1.25 billion, based upon a purchase price
of HK$13.08 (approximately US$1.69) per share. Thereafter, AIG will hold
a position of approximately 111 million shares, representing 0.75

“We’re transforming AIG into a leaner, more profitable and focused
insurer,” said Peter D. Hancock, President and Chief Executive Officer
of AIG. “By continuing to de-risk our position in PICC P&C, we are
enhancing our financial flexibility. We continue to greatly value our
strategic partnership with PICC P&C.”
The ordinary H shares have not been and will not be registered under the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act), or any other
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 H shares, nor shall there
be any sale of the ordinary H shares in any jurisdiction in which such
offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.
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 PICC P&C ordinary H 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,
