The C. V. Starr & Company Inc. Trust and other entities associated with Maurice Greenberg say they might try to seek an American International Group Inc. board seat, or even try to acquire the company.
The entities have joined with AIG, New York, to file a Form Schedule 13D/A amendment to a previously filed beneficial ownership acquisition statement.
In the new form, the filers note that C.V. Starr, New York, one of the “reporting persons” involved with the filing, has hired an investment bank to help it explore its options relating to the “business, operations, financial condition and underlying value” of AIG.
Given the price of AIG’s common stock and economic conditions, the reporting persons say, they may decide to do any of the following:
- Acquire assets from AIG.
- Provide financing to AIG.
- Seek representation on the AIG board.
- Seek “to acquire control of the Issuer [AIG] through a merger, proxy solicitation, tender offer, exchange offer or otherwise.”
