On May 21, 2019, American International Group, Inc. (“AIG”) held its Annual Meeting of Shareholders at which holders of AIG’s common stock, par value $2.50 per share, voted upon (i) the election of thirteen nominees as directors until the next annual election and until their successors are duly elected and qualified; (ii) a non-binding advisory resolution to approve executive compensation; (iii) a non-binding advisory resolution on the frequency of future advisory shareholder votes on executive compensation; (iv) the ratification of the selection of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as AIG’s independent registered public accounting firm for 2019; and (v) a shareholder proposal calling for AIG’s Board of Directors to take steps to amend AIG’s By-laws to provide shareholders who hold at least 10 percent of AIG’s outstanding common stock the right to call special meetings.
The shareholders elected all thirteen director nominees presented, approved the non-binding advisory resolution to approve executive compensation, approved “annual” as the frequency of future advisory shareholder votes on executive compensation, ratified the selection of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as AIG’s independent registered public accounting firm for 2019 and did not approve the shareholder proposal.
