PDF Version

NEW YORK, Feb 09, 2006 -- American International Group, Inc. (AIG) announced that yesterday it reached an agreement with former employees Peter Yu and William Jarosz to resolve all outstanding disputes between them. While AIG is not at liberty to discuss all of the details of the settlement, AIG noted that Mr. Yu and Mr. Jarosz had previously claimed that they were owed money under their employment contracts and the settlement involves no payment of money to Mr. Yu or Mr. Jarosz. In addition, Mr. Yu and Mr. Jarosz have stated in connection with the settlement that "We have determined after review of internal documents that our terminations were not retaliatory." That statement confirms the Department of Labor's dismissal last November of a claim initiated against AIG and others by Mr. Yu and Mr. Jarosz alleging that the termination of their employment had been retaliatory.

"We are very pleased with the outcome," commented Robert Thompson, Senior Managing Director and Head of Alternative Investments at AIG Global Investment Group. "This settlement ensures that our AIG Capital Partners teams can continue to focus all of their energies on private equity investing and to maintain their leadership position in emerging markets."
