DSA Re currently reinsures $36 billion of AIG's Legacy Life and Annuity
and General Insurance liabilities. DSA Re's diversified risk portfolio,
strong claims operation, and efficient administration capabilities
provide the foundation for a platform that can be scaled over time.
Utilizing Carlyle's expertise in separating and standing up companies,
AIG and Carlyle plan to build DSA Re into a platform that complements
DSA Re's financial strength with its strategically differentiated
capabilities.

As part of the transaction, Carlyle will acquire a 19.9% stake in DSA Re
and enter into a strategic asset management relationship whereby DSA Re
and AIG will, in aggregate, allocate $6 billion of assets into various
Carlyle managed strategies across corporate private equity, real assets
and private credit.

Brian Duperreault, AIG's President and Chief Executive Officer, said,
"AIG launched DSA Re to help us efficiently manage our legacy
liabilities, honor our policy obligations and maximize financial
flexibility. This partnership with Carlyle meets these objectives while
allowing AIG to free up capital and participate in the build-out and
growth of the business. We look forward to working closely with Carlyle
to position DSA Re for long-term success."

Kewsong Lee, Carlyle's Co-Chief Executive Officer, stated, "This
strategic partnership extends Carlyle's investment capabilities into the
$15 trillion global insurance industry. Carlyle is excited to deliver
our global investment platform across a variety of asset classes to DSA
Re, and will work to generate attractive returns for the DSA Re
portfolio for many years to come. We have a terrific partner in AIG, and
will work closely together to help DSA Re become independent and
positioned for growth over time."

James Bracken, Chief Executive Officer of AIG Legacy and DSA Re, added,
"DSA Re's experienced team, capabilities, diversified risk portfolio and
strong capital position, along with Carlyle's investment expertise and
success in building strong franchises, provide a foundation to build a
competitive provider of tailored run-off solutions."

Brian Schreiber, Managing Director and Co-Head of Carlyle Global
Financial Services Partners, further noted, "We see tremendous
opportunities for Carlyle and DSA Re as insurers look to improve
investment yields and drive higher returns on capital. Our partnership
will help DSA Re effectively serve this growing market by offering
reinsurance solutions to the insurance industry globally across all
lines of business."

The transaction is expected to close in approximately 60 days, subject
to required regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.

AIG established DSA Re in February 2018 as a Bermuda-based, composite
reinsurer of its Legacy insurance portfolio, consolidating its non-core
insurance lines under a specialized team with expertise in run-off,
while continuing to ensure it meets its obligations to policyholders.

Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC was the financial advisor and Sidley Austin LLP
was the legal advisor to AIG for this minority interest equity sale.

Citi was the financial advisor and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP was the
legal advisor to The Carlyle Group.
