Authored by AIG

American International Group, Inc. has reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023.

AIG Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Peter Zaffino said: “In the second quarter, we continued to build on our momentum, delivering outstanding financial results as well as successfully executing on multiple strategic priorities. Second quarter adjusted after-tax income attributable to AIG common shareholders per diluted common share was $1.75, AIG’s highest adjusted EPS since 2007, representing another significant milestone on our path toward sustainable earnings growth over the long-term.

“Our ability to continue to grow, manage volatility and improve profitability reflects our commitment to underwriting and operational excellence. In addition to our strong financial performance, our team executed on several transactions that will simplify AIG, reduce volatility, generate liquidity and capital efficiencies, and allow us to accelerate our capital management plans.”

“In General Insurance, continued accident year underwriting margin improvement and strong growth resulted in yet another quarter of excellent financial results. Net premiums written increased 11%† year-over-year and Commercial Lines net premiums written grew 13%† driven by strong growth in North America Commercial Lines of 18%†. North America Commercial rate increased 8% or 9% excluding Workers’ Compensation while International Commercial rate increased 9%.”

“The General Insurance combined ratio was 90.9%, inclusive of $250 million of catastrophe losses, or 3.9 loss ratio points, a tremendous result against the backdrop of a very challenging quarter for the industry. The second quarter accident year combined ratio, ex-CAT, was 88.0% and the lowest ratio recorded for the second quarter since 2007. This ratio improved by 50 basis points year-over-year and was driven by an excellent Global Commercial accident year combined ratio, ex-CAT, of 84.4%.”

“Life & Retirement delivered very good results, with premiums and deposits of over $10 billion, a 42% increase year-over-year, benefiting from record sales in Fixed Index Annuities. Results included strong continued base net investment spread expansion.”

“With respect to capital management, we continued to execute against our balanced strategy. In the second quarter, we increased our quarterly common stock dividend by 12.5% to $0.36 per share, representing the first increase since 2016 and we returned $822 million to shareholders through $554 million of AIG common stock repurchases and $268 million of dividends.”

 “In May, we announced the sale of Validus Re to RenaissanceRe for $3 billion, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2023. In addition, we announced and successfully completed the sale of AIG’s Crop Risk Services business to American Financial Group, Inc. for approximately $240 million. We also launched Private Client Select as a Managing General Agency with our partner Stone Point Capital LLC that will serve as an independent platform for the high and ultra-high net worth markets.“

“In June, we completed a secondary offering of Corebridge Financial common stock. Furthermore, Corebridge issued a $400 million special dividend to its shareholders and executed the repurchase of $200 million of common stock from AIG and Blackstone. Including approximately $600 million in regular dividends, these actions resulted in approximately $1.2 billion of total capital returned to Corebridge shareholders since its initial public offering in September 2022. As a result of these actions, AIG received gross proceeds of approximately $1.7 billion and reduced its ownership in Corebridge to 65.3%. “

“The scale of what AIG colleagues accomplished in the second quarter is extraordinary. I am more confident than ever in AIG’s promising future as we continue our journey to be a top performing company delivering excellence in all that we do and creating sustainable long-term value for our stakeholders.”
