Challenge: The insured, a buyer of a target company, discovered a potential complex tax issue just days before signing that could have a materially negative impact on the investment thesis for acquiring the target (if such issue were successfully challenged by the IRS).
Challenge: The insured developer of a renewable energy project was seeking an investment from a tax equity investor that would entitle the investor to tax credits. However, the investor wanted a credit-worthy party to provide a 10 year indemnity for certain risks relating to the tax credits.
Solution: AIG underwrote the tax risk and bound a policy that enabled the buyer to proceed with the acquisition while transferring some of the financial risk of an adverse tax determination.
Solution: AIG underwrote the complex tax risk and enabled the developer to secure an investment from the tax equity investor and proceed towards completion of the renewable energy project.
Benefit: Given our deep expertise and broad appetite, AIG was able to underwrite a complicated tax issue in a compressed deal timeline which allowed the buyer to proceed with the M&A transaction without delay.
