Govt now owns 79.99 % of this company because they loaned 87 Billions. Is there any way to reduce it or to eliminate this? . if AIG repays their loan quickly will it reduce the ownership %.
The gov will only own AIG if they don't pay back the loans. The CEO says they are liquid, and will pay the money back. Is he lying? Only time will tell.
If they pay all that 87 billions, then there is no 80% ownership. That is a relief for AIG shareholders. Now the quetion is how are they going to find that much money.
