AIG Announces Reference Yields for Sterling and Euro-Denominated Debt Securities Subject to Its Previously Announced Tender Offers
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American International Group, Inc. (NYSE:AIG) today announced the pricing of the Sterling and Euro-denominated debt securities issued by AIG (the “Sterling and Euro Securities”) subject to its previously announced cash tender offers (the “Tender Offers”) pursuant to its offer to purchase dated June 12, 2014 (the “Offer to Purchase”).
The reference yield for each series of Sterling and Euro Securities was calculated as of 2:00 p.m., London time, on June 25, 2014, based on the mid-market price of the applicable reference security displayed on the applicable reference page set forth in the table below. The complete terms of the Tender Offers are set forth in the Offer to Purchase, including certain capitalized terms used but not defined herein. The reference yields will be used to determine the consideration paid for each series of Sterling and Euro Securities that are accepted for purchase after expiration of the Tender Offers.
The expiration date of the Tender Offers is 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on July 10, 2014, unless extended (the “Expiration Date”). Holders who have not already tendered their Sterling and Euro Securities may continue to do so at any time prior to the Expiration Date, in accordance with the procedures described in the Offer to Purchase. Holders who validly tender and do not withdraw their Sterling and Euro Securities on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 25, 2014, unless extended (the “Early Participation Date”), and whose Sterling and Euro Securities are accepted for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offers, will receive the Total Consideration set forth below, which includes an early participation amount of £50.00 or €50.00 per £1,000 or €1,000 principal amount (as applicable) of Sterling or Euro Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase (the “Early Participation Amount”). Holders validly tendering their Sterling and Euro Securities after the Early Participation Date and on or prior to the Expiration Date will not be entitled to receive the Early Participation Amount. Tenders of Sterling and Euro Securities may be validly withdrawn at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 25, 2014, but not thereafter.
