Section 5 Corporate Governance and Management
(d) On July 11, 2012, the Board of Directors (the Board) of American International Group, Inc. (AIG) elected Morris W. Offit a Director of AIG. Mr. Offit has also been named the Chairman of the Finance and Risk Management Committee of the Board.
Mr. Offit is currently the Chairman of Offit Capital, a wealth management advisory firm. He previously served as an AIG Director from 2005 until his retirement from the Board of AIG at its 2012 Annual Meeting of Shareholders on May 16, 2012 in accordance with the retirement guideline for AIG Directors. However, because of Mr. Donald H. Laytons resignation from the Board due to his appointment as Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac) and Ms. Laurette T. Koellners resignation from the Board in connection with becoming Executive Chairman of International Lease Finance Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of AIG, the Board determined that it was in the best interests of AIG and its shareholders to ask Mr. Offit to rejoin the Board to serve until the 2013 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, as permitted by AIGs retirement guideline, in light of his knowledge of AIGs businesses and affairs.
Mr. Offit was granted a pro-rated annual award of deferred stock units upon his election, consistent with the compensation of AIGs independent directors, as described under Corporate GovernanceCompensation of Directors in AIGs 2012 Proxy Statement.
A copy of the press release announcing Mr. Offits election is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference herein.
