MetLife Release of $950 Million to AIG Moved Forward to Aug. 31

MetLife Inc., which held part of the purchase price in escrow after buying a unit from American International Group Inc. in 2010, agreed to release $950 million sooner than previously planned, AIG said in a filing today.

The insurers struck a deal last month which, “among other things, provided that $950 million would be released to AIG on August 31, 2012 instead of November 1, 2012 as originally provided under the ALICO stock purchase agreement,” New York based AIG said in a regulatory filing today.

Chris Breslin, a spokesman for New York-based MetLife, and AIG’s Jim Ankner didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
