NEW YORK -- January 9, 2013

American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG) today made the following
announcement regarding the demand served on the AIG Board of Directors related
to lawsuits filed by Starr International Company, Inc. (Starr) contesting
certain terms of the U.S. Government’s rescue of AIG in September 2008.

In accordance with Delaware law and the proceedings before Judges Thomas C.
Wheeler and Paul A. Engelmayer in the lawsuits that Starr has initiated, the
AIG Board has considered Starr’s demand that AIG pursue the shareholder
derivative claims belonging to AIG that Starr has alleged against the United
States of America and the Federal Reserve Board of New York.

The AIG Board has determined to refuse Starr’s demand in its entirety, and
will neither pursue these claims itself nor permit Starr to pursue them in
AIG’s name.

AIG expects to file with the courts a formal statement detailing the Board’s
determination and the reasons underlying it in the coming weeks.

“In considering and ultimately refusing the demand before us, the Board of
Directors properly and fully executed our fiduciary and legal obligations to
AIG and its shareholders,” said Robert S. “Steve” Miller, Chairman of the AIG
Board of Directors. “America invested in 62,000 AIG employees, and we kept our
promise to rebuild this great company, repay every dollar America invested in
us, and deliver a profit to those who put their trust in us. To date, AIG has
returned $205 billion to America, including a profit of $22.7 billion. We
continue to thank America for its support.”
