The company's Asset Management group will meet in Phoenix over the next four days at an upscale Phoenix resort, spending an estimated $300,000 on rooms and amenities which include a speech by football legend Terry Bradshaw.
In an October 9 e-mail obtained by New Times, Eric Koontz, an AIG official in New York City, makes it clear the beleaguered company wants to keep the conference quiet. Koontz writes to workers at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort at 7677 North 16th Street:
Please note that due to the media reports of AIG conducting business at various resort properties, we have eliminated "AIG Advisor Group" from all of our collateral and would appreciate it if you would assist us by insuring that AIG logo is not listed in any public place on property.
My friend, go to the bank, any bank, and ask for a $50,000 loan. It will take them 3 mo nths before you see the money. So what about 80 billion dollar ah?. AIG is moving up at a very good rate. 33% gains in the last week is not bad return ah?. So, be patient, I am sure Mr Lilly and company are working hard as hell to get this Company back on track. And I am sure they will. Good earnings!!!
