The Annual Meeting of Shareholders of American International Group, Inc. (AIG) will be audio webcast live at www.aigwebcast.com on Tuesday, June 30, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. EDT.
Shareholders planning to attend the Annual Meeting should bring photo identification. In addition, if shares are held in “street name” shareholders should bring an account statement or other acceptable evidence of ownership of AIG common stock as of the close of business on May 22, 2009, the record date for voting.
It should be noted that remarks made at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders may include projections and statements which may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These projections and 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. These projections and statements may address, among other things, the outcome of the proposed and completed transactions with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (the NY Fed) and the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the number, size, terms, cost and timing of dispositions and their potential effect on AIG’s businesses, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and liquidity (and AIG at any time and from time to time may change its plans with respect to the sale of one or more businesses), AIG’s exposures to subprime mortgages, monoline insurers and the residential and commercial real estate markets and AIG’s strategy for growth, product development, market position, financial results and reserves. It is possible that AIG's actual results and financial condition will differ, possibly materially, from the anticipated results and financial condition indicated in these projections and statements. Factors that could cause AIG's actual results to differ, possibly materially, from those in the specific projections and statements include a failure of the completed transactions with the Department of the Treasury to achieve their desired objectives or a failure to complete the proposed transactions with the New York Fed, developments in global credit markets and such other factors as discussed in Item 1A. Risk Factors of AIG’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008 and in Part I, Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors in AIG’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2009. AIG is not under any obligation (and expressly disclaims any obligation) to update or alter any projection or other statement, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
Remarks made at the Annual Meeting of Shareholders may also include certain non-GAAP financial measures. The reconciliation of such measures to the most comparable GAAP figures in accordance with Regulation G are included in the Fourth Quarter 2008 and the First Quarter 2009 Financial Supplements available in the Investor Information section of AIG’s corporate website, www.aigcorporate.com.
