Treasury Plans to Reduce AIG Ownership Below MajorityThe U.S. Treasury hopes to reduce its ownership interest in AIG (once 92%, now about 53%) to less than majority ownership. It announced that it has launched an underwritten public offering of $18.0 billion of its AIG common stock. AIG has indicated that it intends to purchase up to $5.0 billion of the common stock sold by Treasury in this offering at the initial public offering price. Treasury will also grant to the underwriters in the offering a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional $2.7 billion in common stock from Treasury to cover over-allotments, if any.
Citigroup, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Goldman, Sachs & Co., and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC have been retained as joint global coordinators. Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Barclays Capital Inc., Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, RBC Capital Markets, LLC, UBS Securities LLC, Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and Macquarie Capital (USA) Inc. have been retained as joint bookrunners for the offering.
