NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American International Group, Inc. (NYSE:AIG) announced today it currently expects to report third quarter 2017 pre-tax catastrophe losses net of reinsurance of $2.9 billion to $3.1 billion ($1.9 billion to $2.0 billion after-tax). This amount includes pre-tax estimated losses of $1.1 billion to $1.2 billion from Hurricane Harvey, $1.0 billion to $1.1 billion from Hurricane Irma, $600 million to $700 million from Hurricane Maria, and approximately $150 million in additional catastrophe losses including Mexico earthquakes.
Brian Duperreault, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “During this period of unprecedented catastrophes, our thoughts are with all who are affected by these storms. We are actively ensuring the safety and support of AIG employees, who acted selflessly to serve their colleagues, clients, and communities. Through AIG’s financial strength and long experience with natural catastrophes, our teams across the company have reacted quickly to provide our clients with the claim funds, resources, and expertise they need to recover and rebuild with greater resilience. We are proud of our response as a member of the industry and as a corporate citizen during this time of need.”
This preliminary estimate involves the exercise of considerable judgment. Due to the complexity of factors contributing to the losses, there can be no assurance that AIG’s ultimate losses associated with these events will not differ from this estimate, perhaps materially.
