AIG has said it plans to sell everything except its U.S.
property and casualty business, foreign general insurance, and
an ownership interest in some foreign life operations.
Blackstone Group LP (BX.N
) is the global coordinator for
the sale of AIG's assets.
Last week, a source said AIG was close to a deal to sell
its Canadian life insurance business and an announcement could
come this week. And last month, the insurer agreed to sell HSB
Group to German reinsurer Munich Re (MUVGn.DE
) for $742
AIG has started selling assets, but is doing so at a
difficult time as the financial crisis crimps the ability of
any would-be buyers to complete deals.
"There are not a lot of firms that are awash with cash,"
said Donald Light, an insurance analyst at Celent. "The
strength in negotiations lies with the buyer, and there are
fewer buyers out there."
The HSB sale came under fire from Maurice Greenberg, the
former AIG chief executive, who said the price was "distressed"
and sought an explanation from the AIG board for the sale
Edward Liddy, AIG's CEO since the bailout, has said the
company will not sell assets at fire-sale prices. The terms of
the revised bailout package also gives AIG more breathing room
to pay the back the government.
Still, selling ILFC, one of the world's largest aircraft
leasing companies, could prove to be a challenge. Analysts have
said the business could be worth as much as $8 billion.
The possibility of forming a consortium to buy the unit is
being looked at, the sources said.
"Figuring out the funding is the key part here," one source
ILFC, run by Steven Udvar-Hazy, who is considered the
godfather of the civil aviation market, owns about $55 billion
worth of planes and is one of the biggest customers of both
Boeing Co (BA.N
) and Airbus, a unit of EADS (EAD.PA
ILFC relied on AIG's blue-chip credit rating for access to
cheap capital for buying planes, but was locked out of the debt
market in September due to the insurer's troubles.
