In addition, AIG announced that it will purchase Sterling and Euro Debentures up to an aggregate purchase price of $408 million. The tender offer caps for the Dollar Debentures and the SAFG Securities remain unchanged. As previously announced, the Early Participation Date for the tender offers was 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 4, 2013. The complete terms of the tender offers, including certain capitalized terms used but not defined herein, are set forth in the Offer to Purchase and, as applicable, the related letter of transmittal.
As of the Early Participation Date, the principal or liquidation amount of Securities of each series outstanding and validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, the Hypothetical Clearing Spread and the Total Consideration per £1,000, €1,000 or $1,000 principal or liquidation amount were as follows:

If we receive no additional tenders of Securities after the Early Participation Date, then the actual Clearing Spreads will be the same as the Hypothetical Clearing Spreads set forth above. If we receive tenders of Securities after the Early Participation Date at bid spreads above the Hypothetical Clearing Spreads, the actual Clearing Spreads may increase and the Total Consideration paid to holders who validly tendered and did not withdraw their Securities on or prior to the Early Participation Date may decrease. The actual Clearing Spread, Total Consideration and Tender Offer Consideration for each series of Securities will be determined promptly following the Expiration Date (as defined below).
Holders who validly tendered and did not withdraw their Securities on or prior to the Early Participation Date, and whose Securities are accepted for purchase pursuant to the tender offers, will receive the Total Consideration, which includes an early participation amount of £50, €50 or $50 per £1,000, €1,000 or $1,000 principal or liquidation amount, as applicable, of Securities validly tendered and accepted for purchase (the "Early Participation Amount").
The expiration date of the tender offers is 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 18, 2013, unless extended (the "Expiration Date"). Holders validly tendering their Securities after the Early Participation Date and on or prior to the Expiration Date will not be entitled to receive the Early Participation Amount. The Payment Date will be promptly following the Expiration Date and is expected to be on or about March 19, 2013 for the Dollar Debentures and SAFG Securities and on or about March 20, 2013 for the Sterling and Euro Debentures.
Withdrawal rights for the tender offers have expired and have not been extended.
