The Early Tender Payment is included in “Total Consideration” and not included in “Tender Offer Consideration.”

The complete terms of the Tender Offers are set forth in AIG’s Offer to Purchase and Consent Solictation Statement for the SunAmerica Notes, dated May 11, 2021, and AIG’s Offer to Purchase and Consent Solictation Statement for the AIG Life Holdings Notes, dated May 11, 2021 (each, an “Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation”) and the related letters of transmittal.

The Tender Offers are scheduled to expire at the “Expiration Time,” which is 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 8, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated.

The Tender Offers are not conditioned on the tender of a minimum principal amount of notes.

 

This press release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell the notes or any other securities. The Tender Offers are made only by and pursuant to the terms of each Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation and the related letters of transmittal and only to such persons and in such jurisdictions as is permitted under applicable law. The information in this press release is qualified by reference to each Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation and the related letters of transmittal. None of AIG, the dealer managers and consent solicitation agents or the tender and information agent makes any recommendations as to whether holders should tender their notes pursuant to the Tender Offers. Holders must make their own decisions as to whether to tender notes, and, if so, the principal amount of notes to tender.
