Sources say AIG (AIG) and the government are finalizing a plan that would accelerate repayment of some of AIG's debt and allow the government to exit its 79.8% stake, but only after rising to over 90%. The conversion price of the Treasury's $49B in preferred shares is the main point of contention, with AIG officials trying to ensure shareholders "don't lose all the upside," and the Treasury concerned about leaving too much meat on the bone.
