   AIG ANNOUNCES IMPACT OF UK OGDEN DISCOUNT RATE CHANGE AND TREATMENT OF DEFERRED GAIN ASSOCIATED WITH ADVERSE DEVELOPMENT COVER
   NEW YORK, April 19, 2017 – American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG) today announced two items impacting results for the quarter ending March 31, 2017.
   In the first quarter of 2017, AIG expects to record an increase to prior year loss reserves of approximately $100 million pre-tax from the recent decision by the UK Ministry of Justice to reduce the discount rate applied to lump-sum bodily injury payouts, known as the Ogden rate, to -0.75%. Our carried reserves as at December 31, 2016 were estimated using an assumption that the Ogden rate would decline to 1.0%. This discount rate change primarily impacts the Liability & Financial Lines business within Commercial Insurance in the United Kingdom.
   Secondly, AIG will recognize an estimated nominal pre-tax deferred gain of $2.6 billion in connection with the adverse development cover entered into with Berkshire Hathaway as previously disclosed. Beginning in the first quarter of 2017, AIG will begin amortizing the deferred gain over the expected reinsurance recovery period. The amortization of such amount will be included in pre-tax operating income for the Liability and Financial lines business each quarter. First quarter 2017 results will reflect a partial quarter of amortization of approximately $40 million pre-tax based on the closing date of the contract of February 3, 2017.
