THIRD QUARTER NOTEWORTHY ITEMS

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 4, 2021-- American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

AIG President and CEO Peter Zaffino said: “We continue to build momentum and execute on our strategic priorities as evidenced by another quarter of outstanding financial results, as well as significant progress on AIG 200 and the separation of Life and Retirement from AIG. Against the backdrop of a very active CAT season and the ongoing global pandemic, AIG colleagues demonstrated continued resilience and are performing at a high level delivering value to our stakeholders and excellence in all that we do.

“General Insurance delivered very strong results demonstrating the underwriting discipline now embedded in our culture and the benefits of our volatility reduction efforts through a well-articulated risk appetite and reinsurance program that performed well. Net premiums written grew by 11%, driven by Commercial Lines growth of 17%, which was balanced between 18% growth in North America and 15% growth in International reflecting improved retention, outstanding levels of new business, and a continued strong rate environment. We also reported another quarter of impressive underwriting profitability, with a combined ratio of 99.7 inclusive of catastrophe losses, and 90.5, as adjusted, which represents a 2.8 point improvement from the accident year combined ratio, as adjusted, in the third quarter of 2020.

“Life and Retirement was once again a solid contributor to profitability delivering adjusted pre-tax income of $877 million and a return on adjusted segment common equity of 12.2%.

“In the third quarter we repurchased $1.1 billion of common stock, redeemed $1.5 billion of debt and ended the quarter with $5.3 billion of liquidity, all demonstrating the strength of our balance sheet and exceptional financial flexibility as we execute against our capital management strategy.

“AIG’s performance in the third quarter and through the first nine months of the year validates the strategy we have been executing on over the last few years. We have vastly improved the quality of our portfolio by delivering superior risk solutions, we continue to embed operational excellence across the organization, and we recently reached a significant milestone toward making Life and Retirement a standalone company by closing on the sale of a 9.9% equity stake to Blackstone. AIG is well on its way to becoming a top performing company that delivers sustainable profitable growth over the long-term.”

For the third quarter of 2021, net income attributable to AIG common shareholders was $1.7 billion, or $1.92 per diluted common share, compared to net income of $281 million, or $0.32 per diluted common share, in the prior year quarter. The increase was primarily due to net realized gains in the current quarter compared to net realized losses in the prior year quarter and overall strong General Insurance underwriting results, including lower CATs. These pre-tax increases were partially offset by Life and Retirement, which had higher DAC amortization principally due to the impact of the annual assumption review which was partially offset by the gain from the sale of our retail mutual fund business and higher income tax expense primarily due to higher income from operations.

AATI was $837 million, or $0.97 per diluted common share, for the third quarter of 2021 compared to $708 million, or $0.81 per diluted common share, in the prior year quarter. The increase was primarily due to strong General Insurance underwriting results, including lower CATs, partially offset by lower APTI from Life and Retirement.

Total consolidated net investment income for the third quarter of 2021 was $3.7 billion, down 2% from $3.8 billion in the prior year quarter primarily due to lower returns from fair value option equity and fixed income securities, partially offset by strong alternative investment income from private equity. Total net investment income on an APTI basis* was $3.3 billion, an increase of $78 million compared to the prior year quarter reflecting higher private equity income.

Book value per common share was $77.03 as of September 30, 2021, an increase of 0.7% from December 31, 2020 and 0.4% from June 30, 2021. Adjusted book value per common share was $61.80, an increase of 8.4% from December 31, 2020 and 2.9% from June 30, 2021 reflecting growth in retained earnings from net income in excess of dividends and share repurchases. Adjusted tangible book value per share was $55.89, an increase of 9.2% from December 31, 2020 and 3.0% from June 30, 2021.

As of September 30, 2021, AIG Parent liquidity was approximately $5.3 billion. AIG repurchased approximately 20 million shares of AIG common stock during the third quarter for an aggregate purchase price of $1.1 billion. Additionally, in the third quarter of 2021 AIG redeemed $1.5 billion aggregate principal amount of 4.875% Notes Due 2022 and repurchased, through cash tender offers, and canceled certain notes and debentures issued or guaranteed by AIG. AIG’s total debt and preferred stock to total capital leverage at September 30, 2021 was 26.1%, down from 27.0% at June 30, 2021.

Today, the AIG Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.32 per share on AIG common stock (NYSE: AIG). The dividend is payable on December 30, 2021 to stockholders of record at the close of business on December 16, 2021.

The AIG Board of Directors also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $365.625 per share on AIG Series A 5.85% Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, with a liquidation preference of $25,000 per share, which is represented by depositary shares (NYSE: AIG PRA), each representing a 1/1,000th interest in a share of preferred stock. Holders of depositary shares will receive $0.365625 per depositary share. The dividend is payable on December 15, 2021 to holders of record at the close of business on November 30, 2021.

General Insurance

  • Net premiums written in the third quarter of 2021 increased 11% (10% on a constant dollar basis) to $6.6 billion from the prior year quarter driven by strong North America Commercial Lines and International Commercial Lines growth of 18% and 15% (12% on a constant dollar basis), respectively, reflecting strong rate improvement, higher renewal retentions and strong new business production. Additionally, North America Personal Insurance net premiums written growth of 11% reflects increases in the Travel and Warranty business driven by increased consumer spending, partially offset by lower Private Client Group (PCG) business driven by underwriting actions taken to improve our portfolio mix and rate adequacy. International Personal Insurance net premiums written decreased 3% (down 3% on a constant dollar basis) compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to underwriting actions taken to improve our portfolio mix and rate adequacy, partially offset by growth in Travel due to a rebound in travel activity.
  • Third quarter 2021 APTI increased by $395 million to $811 million from the prior year quarter due to continued improvement in underwriting results. Underwriting income was $20 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to an underwriting loss of $423 million in the prior year quarter. The underwriting income included $628 million of CATs, predominantly from Hurricane Ida and U.K. and European floods, compared to $790 million in the prior year quarter, which included $185 million of estimated COVID-19 losses. Despite the elevated level of global catastrophic activity in the third quarter of 2021, AIG’s losses were mitigated by improved underwriting and enhanced reinsurance protections.
  • Third quarter 2021 also included favorable net prior year loss reserve development, net of reinsurance (PYD) of $50 million, including $47 million of favorable amortization from the Adverse Development Cover, compared to total unfavorable PYD of $13 million in the prior year quarter. The third quarter benefited from favorable development on our worldwide short-tail lines, which included lower emerged claims frequency from accident year 2020, and lower expected ultimate losses related to 2017 and 2018 wildfires driven largely from subrogation recoveries and continued favorable development in U.S. Workers Compensation. The favorable PYD is contrasted by reserve strengthening in Global Financial Lines with North America Financial Lines being primarily attributable to accident years 2016 through 2018 whereas, International depending on the Region involved, included a broader range of accident years. Subrogation recoveries related to 2018 California wildfires losses in our Personal Insurance business were largely offset by the reversal of recorded reinsurance recoveries for 2018 in our Commercial Lines business of approximately $206 million, as we no longer reached the attachment point under our North American aggregate CAT cover as a result of the receipt of the subrogation amounts.
  • General Insurance continued to generate improved underwriting results, with a combined ratio of 99.7, a 7.5 point decrease from 107.2 in the prior year quarter. The improvement reflects lower CATs and overall strong underwriting results driven by improvements in both the loss and expense ratios of 6.2 points and 1.3 points, respectively. The General Insurance accident year combined ratio, as adjusted, was 90.5, an improvement of 2.8 points from the prior year quarter and was comprised of a 59.2 accident year loss ratio, as adjusted*, and an expense ratio of 31.3. The General Insurance accident year loss ratio, as adjusted, improved by 1.5 points from the prior year quarter reflecting continued improvement in the commercial underwriting business mix and quality of the portfolio. The General Insurance total expense ratio improved 1.3 points from the prior year quarter reflecting continued general operating expense discipline as we grow the portfolio, including benefits from the AIG 200 program.
  • Commercial Lines underwriting results continued to show strong improvement due to improved business mix and premium growth along with continued rate increases. The accident year combined ratio, as adjusted, for North America Commercial Lines improved 3.7 points to 90.5, and for International Commercial Lines improved 2.1 points to 86.8 compared to the prior year quarter.
  • Personal Insurance underwriting results also improved driven by North America. The North America Personal Insurance accident year combined ratio, as adjusted, improved 20.2 points to 98.4 compared to the prior year quarter reflecting improved attritional PCG loss experience and a rebound in travel insurance premiums.The International Personal Insurance accident year combined ratio, as adjusted, increased 0.8 points to 93.0 reflecting a 1.5 point increase in the accident year loss ratio, as adjusted, to 51.9 compared to the prior year quarter, partially offset by a 0.7 point improvement in the expense ratio to 41.1.

Life and Retirement

  • Life and Retirement reported APTI of $877 million for the third quarter of 2021, down 13% from $1.0 billion in the prior year quarter. The third quarter of 2021 included a $166 million unfavorable impact from the annual actuarial assumption update, unfavorable mortality, higher general operating expenses (GOE) and increases in deferred policy acquisition costs amortization and reserves primarily in Individual Retirement and Group Retirement, partially offset by higher fee income as well as strong alternative investment income across all segments. Life Insurance APTI of $134 million, increased $102 million from $32 million in the prior year quarter primarily reflecting favorable impacts from the annual actuarial assumption update, partially offset by unfavorable mortality.
  • Premiums were $1.0 billion, up from $785 million, or 33%, from the prior year quarter driven by higher pension risk transfer activity in third quarter of 2021. Premiums and deposits increased 3%, or $236 million, from the prior year quarter to $7.2 billion due to the recovery from broad industry-wide sales disruption resulting from COVID-19 and the increase in pension risk transfer activity.
  • Individual and Group Retirement net flows were negative $919 million, a significant improvement of $807 million from the prior year quarter due to a recovery from 2020 sales disruptions from COVID-19. Excluding Retail Mutual Funds, which was sold in third quarter of 2021, Individual Retirement recorded net inflows of $240 million compared to net outflows of $110 million in the prior year quarter, largely due to a recovery from the broad industry-wide sales disruption resulting from COVID-19. In the Group Retirement business, net flows were negative $1.0 billion, slightly elevated than the prior year quarter reflecting higher surrenders.

  • Third quarter adjusted pre-tax loss (APTL) was $562 million, including $192 million of reductions from consolidation and eliminations, compared to APTL of $508 million, including $140 million of reductions from consolidation and eliminations, in the prior year quarter. The increase in consolidation and eliminations APTL reflects the elimination of the insurance companies’ net investment income on their investment in consolidated investment entities.
  • Before consolidation and eliminations, the increase in APTL reflects higher corporate GOE including increases in performance-based employee compensation, partially offset by higher net investment income and lower corporate interest expense resulting from year-to-date debt redemption activity.

LIFE AND RETIREMENT SEPARATION

  • On October 26, 2020, AIG announced its intention to separate its Life and Retirement business from AIG.
  • On July 14, 2021, AIG and Blackstone Inc. (Blackstone) announced that they reached a definitive agreement for Blackstone to acquire a 9.9 percent equity stake in SAFG Retirement Services, Inc. (SAFG), which is the holding company for AIG’s Life and Retirement business, for $2.2 billion in an all cash transaction, subject to adjustment if the final pro forma adjusted book value is greater or lesser than the target pro forma adjusted book value. As part of this agreement, AIG also agreed to enter into a long-term asset management relationship with Blackstone to manage an initial $50 billion of Life and Retirement’s existing investment portfolio upon closing of the equity investment, with that amount increasing by increments of $8.5 billion per year for the next five years beginning in the fourth quarter of 2022, for an aggregate of $92.5 billion. These transactions closed on November 2, 2021. While we currently believe an IPO is the next step in the separation of the Life and Retirement business from AIG, no assurance can be given regarding the form that future separation transactions may take or the specific terms or timing thereof, or that a separation will in fact occur. Any separation transaction will be subject to the satisfaction of various conditions and approvals, including approval by the AIG Board of Directors, receipt of insurance and other required regulatory approvals, and satisfaction of any applicable requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
  • Additionally, AIG and Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust (BREIT), a long-term, perpetual capital vehicle affiliated with Blackstone, announced on July 14, 2021 that they reached a definitive agreement for BREIT to acquire AIG’s interests in a U.S. affordable housing portfolio for approximately $5.1 billion, subject to certain adjustments, in an all cash transaction. As of September 30, 2021, the assets and liabilities related to the Affordable Housing portfolio, $4.3 billion and $2.7 billion, respectively, are classified as held for sale and are reported in Other assets and Other liabilities within AIG’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. This transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021.

COMMENT ON REGULATION G AND NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Throughout this press release, including the financial highlights, AIG presents its financial condition and results of operations in the way it believes will be most meaningful and representative of its business results. Some of the measurements AIG uses are “Non-GAAP financial measures” under Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations. GAAP is the acronym for generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The non-GAAP financial measures AIG presents are listed below and may not be comparable to similarly-named measures reported by other companies. The reconciliations of such measures to the most comparable GAAP measures in accordance with Regulation G are included within the relevant tables attached to this news release or in the Third Quarter 2021 Financial Supplement available in the Investors section of AIG’s website, www.aig.com.

Book Value per Common Share, Excluding Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) (AOCI) adjusted for the cumulative unrealized gains and losses related to Fortitude Re funds withheld assets and Deferred Tax Assets (DTA) (Adjusted Book Value per Common Share) is used to show the amount of AIG’s net worth on a per-common share basis after eliminating items that can fluctuate significantly from period to period including changes in fair value of AIG’s available for sale securities portfolio, foreign currency translation adjustments and U.S. tax attribute deferred tax assets. This measure also eliminates the asymmetrical impact resulting from changes in fair value of AIG’s available for sale securities portfolio wherein there is largely no offsetting impact for certain related insurance liabilities. In addition, AIG adjusts for the cumulative unrealized gains and losses related to Fortitude Re funds withheld assets held by AIG in support of Fortitude Re’s reinsurance obligations to AIG post deconsolidation of Fortitude Re (Fortitude Re funds withheld assets) since these fair value movements are economically transferred to Fortitude Re. AIG excludes deferred tax assets representing U.S. tax attributes related to net operating loss carryforwards and foreign tax credits as they have not yet been utilized. Amounts for interim periods are estimates based on projections of full-year attribute utilization. As net operating loss carryforwards and foreign tax credits are utilized, the portion of the DTA utilized is included in these book value per common share metrics. Adjusted Book Value per Common Share is derived by dividing Total AIG common shareholders’ equity, excluding AOCI adjusted for the cumulative unrealized gains and losses related to Fortitude Re funds withheld assets, and DTA (Adjusted Common Shareholders’ Equity), by total common shares outstanding.

Book Value per Common Share, Excluding Goodwill, Value of Business Acquired (VOBA), Value of Distribution Channel Acquired (VODA), Other Intangible Assets, AOCI adjusted for the cumulative unrealized gains and losses related to Fortitude Re funds withheld assets, and Deferred Tax Assets (DTA) (Adjusted Tangible Book Value per Common Share) is used to provide more accurate measure of the realizable value of shareholder on a per-common share basis. Adjusted Tangible Book Value per Common Share is derived by dividing Total AIG common shareholders’ equity, excluding intangible assets, AOCI adjusted for the cumulative unrealized gains and losses related to Fortitude Re funds withheld assets, and DTA (Adjusted Tangible Common Shareholders’ Equity), by total common shares outstanding.

AIG Return on Common Equity – Adjusted After-tax Income Excluding AOCI adjusted for the cumulative unrealized gains and losses related to Fortitude Re funds withheld assets and DTA (Adjusted Return on Common Equity) is used to show the rate of return on common shareholders’ equity. AIG believes this measure is useful to investors because it eliminates items that can fluctuate significantly from period to period, including changes in fair value of AIG’s available for sale securities portfolio, foreign currency translation adjustments and U.S. tax attribute deferred tax assets. This measure also eliminates the asymmetrical impact resulting from changes in fair value of AIG’s available for sale securities portfolio wherein there is largely no offsetting impact for certain related insurance liabilities. In addition, AIG adjusts for the cumulative unrealized gains and losses related to Fortitude Re funds withheld assets since these fair value movements are economically transferred to Fortitude Re. AIG excludes deferred tax assets representing U.S. tax attributes related to net operating loss carryforwards and foreign tax credits as they have not yet been utilized. Amounts for interim periods are estimates based on projections of full-year attribute utilization. As net operating loss carryforwards and foreign tax credits are utilized, the portion of the DTA utilized is included in Adjusted Return on Common Equity. Adjusted Return on Common Equity is derived by dividing actual or annualized adjusted after-tax income attributable to AIG common shareholders by average Adjusted Common Shareholders’ Equity.

General Insurance and Life and Retirement Adjusted Segment Common Equity is based on segment equity adjusted for the attribution of debt and preferred stock (Segment Common Equity) and is consistent with AIG’s Adjusted Common Shareholders’ Equity definition.

General Insurance and Life and Retirement Return on Adjusted Segment Common Equity – Adjusted After-tax Income (Return on Adjusted Segment Common Equity) is used to show the rate of return on Adjusted Segment Common Equity. Return on Adjusted Segment Common Equity is derived by dividing actual or annualized Adjusted After-tax Income by Average Adjusted Segment Common Equity.

Adjusted After-tax Income Attributable to General Insurance and Life and Retirement is derived by subtracting attributed interest expense, income tax expense and attributed dividends on preferred stock from APTI. Attributed debt and the related interest expense and dividends on preferred stock are calculated based on AIG’s internal allocation model. Tax expense or benefit is calculated based on an internal attribution methodology that considers among other things the taxing jurisdiction in which the segments conduct business, as well as the deductibility of expenses in those jurisdictions.

Adjusted Revenues exclude Net realized gains (losses), income from non-operating litigation settlements (included in Other income for GAAP purposes) and changes in fair value of securities used to hedge guaranteed living benefits (included in Net investment income for GAAP purposes). Adjusted revenues is a GAAP measure for AIG’s segments.

AIG uses the following operating performance measures because AIG believes they enhance the understanding of the underlying profitability of continuing operations and trends of AIG’s business segments. AIG believes they also allow for more meaningful comparisons with AIG’s insurance competitors. When AIG uses these measures, reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measure are provided on a consolidated basis.

Adjusted Pre-tax Income (APTI) is derived by excluding the items set forth below from income from continuing operations before income tax. This definition is consistent across AIG’s segments. These items generally fall into one or more of the following broad categories: legacy matters having no relevance to AIG’s current businesses or operating performance; adjustments to enhance transparency to the underlying economics of transactions; and measures that AIG believes to be common to the industry. APTI is a GAAP measure for AIG’s segments. Excluded items include the following:

  • changes in fair value of securities used to hedge guaranteed living benefits;
  • changes in benefit reserves and deferred policy acquisition costs (DAC), value of business acquired (VOBA), and sales inducement assets (SIA) related to net realized gains and losses;
  • changes in the fair value of equity securities;
  • net investment income on Fortitude Re funds withheld assets;
  • following deconsolidation of Fortitude Re, net realized gains and losses on Fortitude Re funds withheld assets;
  • loss (gain) on extinguishment of debt;
  • all net realized gains and losses except earned income (periodic settlements and changes in settlement accruals) on derivative instruments used for non-qualifying (economic) hedging or for asset replication. Earned income on such economic hedges is reclassified from net realized gains and losses to specific APTI line items based on the economic risk being hedged (e.g. net investment income and interest credited to policyholder account balances);
  • income or loss from discontinued operations;
  • net loss reserve discount benefit (charge);
  • pension expense related to a one-time lump sum payment to former employees;
  • income and loss from divestitures;
  • non-operating litigation reserves and settlements;
  • restructuring and other costs related to initiatives designed to reduce operating expenses, improve efficiency and simplify AIG’s organization;
  • the portion of favorable or unfavorable prior year reserve development for which AIG has ceded the risk under retroactive reinsurance agreements and related changes in amortization of the deferred gain;
  • integration and transaction costs associated with acquiring or divesting businesses;
  • losses from the impairment of goodwill; and
  • non-recurring costs associated with the implementation of non-ordinary course legal or regulatory changes or changes to accounting principles.

Adjusted After-tax Income attributable to AIG common shareholders (AATI) is derived by excluding the tax effected APTI adjustments described above, dividends on preferred stock, and the following tax items from net income attributable to AIG:

  • deferred income tax valuation allowance releases and charges;
  • changes in uncertain tax positions and other tax items related to legacy matters having no relevance to AIG’s current businesses or operating performance; and
  • net tax charge related to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Tax Act);

and by excluding the net realized gains (losses) and other charges from noncontrolling interests.

See page 15 for the reconciliation of Net income attributable to AIG to Adjusted After-tax Income Attributable to AIG.

Ratios: AIG, along with most property and casualty insurance companies, uses the loss ratio, the expense ratio and the combined ratio as measures of underwriting performance. These ratios are relative measurements that describe, for every $100 of net premiums earned, the amount of losses and loss adjustment expenses (which for General Insurance excludes net loss reserve discount), and the amount of other underwriting expenses that would be incurred. A combined ratio of less than 100 indicates underwriting income and a combined ratio of over 100 indicates an underwriting loss. AIG’s ratios are calculated using the relevant segment information calculated under GAAP, and thus may not be comparable to similar ratios calculated for regulatory reporting purposes. The underwriting environment varies across countries and products, as does the degree of litigation activity, all of which affect such ratios. In addition, investment returns, local taxes, cost of capital, regulation, product type and competition can have an effect on pricing and consequently on profitability as reflected in underwriting income and associated ratios.

Accident year loss and Accident year combined ratios, as adjusted: both the accident year loss and accident year combined ratios, as adjusted, exclude catastrophe losses and related reinstatement premiums, prior year development, net of premium adjustments, and the impact of reserve discounting. Natural catastrophe losses are generally weather or seismic events having a net impact on AIG in excess of $10 million each and man-made catastrophe losses, such as terrorism and civil disorders that exceed the $10 million threshold. AIG believes that as adjusted ratios are meaningful measures of AIG’s underwriting results on an ongoing basis as they exclude catastrophes and the impact of reserve discounting which are outside of management’s control. AIG also excludes prior year development to provide transparency related to current accident year results.

Underwriting ratios are computed as follows:
a) Loss ratio = Loss and loss adjustment expenses incurred ÷ Net premiums earned (NPE)
b) Acquisition ratio = Total acquisition expenses ÷ NPE
c) General operating expense ratio = General operating expenses ÷ NPE
d) Expense ratio = Acquisition ratio + General operating expense ratio
e) Combined ratio = Loss ratio + Expense ratio
f) Catastrophe losses (CATs) and reinstatement premiums = [Loss and loss adjustment expenses incurred – (CATs)] ÷ [NPE +/(-) CYRIPs] – Loss ratio
g) Accident year loss ratio, as adjusted (AYLR) = [Loss and loss adjustment expenses incurred – CATs – PYD] ÷ [NPE +/(-) Reinstatement premiums related to current year catastrophes (CYRIPs) +/(-) RIPs related to prior year catastrophes (PYRIPs) + (Additional) returned premium related to PYD on loss sensitive business ((AP)RP) + Adjustment for ceded premiums under reinsurance contracts related to prior accident years]
h) Accident year combined ratio, as adjusted = AYLR + Expense ratio
i) Prior year development net of (additional) return premium related to PYD on loss sensitive business = [Loss and loss adjustment expenses incurred – CATs – PYD] ÷ [NPE +/(-) CYRIPs +/(-) PYRIPs + (AP)RP] – Loss ratio – CAT ratio

Premiums and deposits: includes direct and assumed amounts received and earned on traditional life insurance policies, group benefit policies and life‑contingent payout annuities, as well as deposits received on universal life, investment‑type annuity contracts, Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) funding agreements and mutual funds.

Results from discontinued operations are excluded from all of these measures.

(a) Nine months ended September 30, 2021 includes the completion of audit activity by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Nine months ended September 30, 2020 includes the write-down of net operating loss deferred tax assets in certain foreign jurisdictions, which is offset by valuation allowance release.

(b) Nine months ended September 30, 2021 as well as three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 include valuation allowance established against a portion of certain tax attribute carryforwards of AIG's U.S. federal consolidated income tax group, as well as valuation allowance changes in certain foreign jurisdictions.

(c) Includes all net realized gains and losses except earned income (periodic settlements and changes in settlement accruals) on derivative instruments used for non-qualifying (economic) hedging or for asset replication and net realized gains and losses on Fortitude Re funds withheld assets.

(d) Prior to June 2, 2020, noncontrolling interests was primarily due to the 19.9 percent investment in Fortitude Group Holdings, LLC (Fortitude Holdings) by an affiliate of The Carlyle Group L.P. (Carlyle), which occurred in the fourth quarter of 2018. Carlyle was allocated 19.9 percent of Fortitude Holdings’ standalone financial results through the June 2, 2020 closing date of the sale of a majority of the interests in Fortitude Holdings. Fortitude Holdings’ results were mostly eliminated in AIG’s consolidated income from continuing operations given that its results arose from intercompany transactions. Noncontrolling interests was calculated based on the standalone financial results of Fortitude Holdings. The most significant component of Fortitude Holdings’ standalone results was the change in fair value of the embedded derivatives which changes with movements in interest rates and credit spreads, and which was recorded in net realized gains and losses of Fortitude Holdings. In accordance with AIG's adjusted after-tax income definition, realized gains and losses are excluded from noncontrolling interests. Subsequent to the Majority Interest Fortitude Sale, AIG owns 3.5 percent of Fortitude Holdings and no longer consolidates Fortitude Holdings in its financial statements as of such date. The minority interest in Fortitude Holdings is carried at cost within AIG’s Other invested assets, which was $100 million as of September 30, 2021.

(a) For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020, because we reported a net loss attributable to AIG common shareholders, all common stock equivalents are anti-dilutive and are therefore excluded from the calculation of diluted shares and diluted per share amounts. However, because we reported adjusted after-tax income attributable to AIG common shareholders, the calculation of adjusted after-tax income per diluted share attributable to AIG common shareholders includes 4,432,369 dilutive shares for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020.
