07:02 EDTAIG, BACAIG announces settlement with BofA on residential mortgage related disputes
American International Group (AIG) announced that it has reached a global resolution of its residential mortgage related disputes with Bank of America (BAC). The resolution includes its claims pending in New York and California federal courts related to the creation, offering, and sale of RMBS from which AIG and its subsidiaries suffered losses either directly on their own account or in connection with their participation in AIG’s securities lending program. The resolution also covers AIG’s objections to the $8.5 billion settlement of Countrywide’s mortgage repurchase obligations to various investors, as well as disputes concerning the issuance of mortgage guaranty insurance by AIG’s United Guaranty subsidiaries to Bank of America and Countrywide. Under the terms of the settlement, AIG will receive $650M in cash plus its pro rata share of whatever amount is ultimately paid out to investors in connection with the Countrywide repurchase settlement. In addition, the parties have agreed, subject to the approval of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and certain other mortgage holders, to resolve the outstanding mortgage guaranty claims disputes in accordance with agreed-to claims processes and payment formulae.

09:09 EDTAIGIcahn to commence AIG consent solicitation, may seek board representation
Carl Icahn, who identifies himself as one of AIG's largest shareholders that currently owns over 42M shares, noted he wrote a public letter to the CEO of AIG on October 28 suggesting that the company is "Too Big To Succeed" and should accelerate cost cutting and separate into three public companies to shrink below the threshold for systemically important financial institutions. "Since we released that letter, many large institutional shareholders and analysts have contacted us and expressed their support for our views. We have also met and had a number of conversations with AIG CEO Peter Hancock, and he has invited us to continue having conversations. However, despite that invitation, in all of our discussions with Mr. Hancock it was abundantly clear to us that he is not willing to take the bold steps that we, and so many other shareholders, believe are long overdue. In addition, in those conversations he failed to lay out any alternative strategic plan with the potential to unlock value for shareholders or to provide compelling reasons as to why these businesses belong together," Icahn wrote in a new statement released via his website. Icahn went on to say: "While we plan to accept Mr. Hancock's offer to continue having discussions and meetings with AIG, we do not believe that he will ever sincerely consider what we, and so many others, have proposed. Nor do we believe that the AIG board of directors will respond to the demands of AIG shareholders absent a clear mandate. As a result, we intend to commence shortly a consent solicitation that will enable shareholders to express their views directly to the board, which may include a proposal to add a new director who would agree in advance to succeed Mr. Hancock as CEO if asked by the board to do so. We thank our fellow shareholders for their continued support and look forward to sharing the details of our consent solicitation over the next few weeks."
