Whitney Tilson's Bullish Presentation on AIG


• American International Group, Inc. (NYSE:AIG) is a leading global multi-line insurance company with well-managed, sustainable global franchises

• AIG today is far different from the risky pre-crisis AIG

• Lingering taint from the crisis plus the overhang of US Treasury ownership result in the stock trading at a 41% discount to tangible book value

• We think AIG is worth at least 1x tangible book, and see numerous catalysts in the next year or two to close the valuation discrepancy

• As the US Treasury?s stake declines (likely in part due to Company repurchases) and the stability and growth of AIG?s core franchises become clear, the market will re-value AIG
