T&D Holdings and The Carlyle Group to Acquire a Majority Interest in Fortitude Re from AIG for Approximately $1.8 Billion


American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG), The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ: CG) and T&D Holdings (TYO:8795) announced on November 25, 2019 that a newly created Carlyle-managed fund and T&D have partnered to acquire from AIG a 76.6 percent% ownership interest in Fortitude Group Holdings, whose group companies operate as Fortitude Re, for approximately $1.8 billion. Fortitude Re reinsures approximately $31 billion of liabilities of AIG’s Legacy Life and Retirement Run-Off Lines and approximately $4 billion of liabilities of AIG’s Legacy General Insurance Run-Off Lines.

Consummation of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval or non-objection by the Bermuda Monetary Authority, New York State Department of Financial Services, the Texas Department of Insurance, the Illinois Department of Insurance, the Pennsylvania Insurance Department and the Delaware Department of Insurance.

After closing, ownership interests in Fortitude Re will include Carlyle and its fund investors at 71.5 percent (including the 19.9 percent stake previously acquired by Carlyle in November 2018), T&D at 25 percent and AIG at 3.5 percent, subject to certain adjustments in the purchase agreement. Fortitude will become an affiliated company of T&D and will no longer be a part of AIG’s consolidated group. T&D was represented by King & Spalding.
