AIG got a Bridge Loan - $85 Billion Interest Total = 11.5% Warrants issued - No value at this time but, in my opinion, will never be exercised. It is a Line of Credit Probably won't use 1/2 of it, if at all. Gov'ts new plan now takes the bad mortgages out of the formula. AIG may not need the money at all at this point. Even without the governments newest $700B mortgage bail-out, the bridge loan would have given AIG the time to reorganize from within. The deal was and still is very good for the tax payer. Everyone wins - AIG, the taxpayer and the world economy. Look for a dramatic increase in the stocks value in coming days.
