Preferred Stock Offering Details: AmTrust Financial Services, Inc.

Each Depositary Share entitles the holder to a proportional fractional interest in all rights and preferences of the Preferred Stock represented thereby (including any dividend, liquidation, redemption and voting rights). The Company expects the offering to close on March 19, 2015, subject to customary closing conditions. Dividends on the Preferred Stock represented by the Depositary Shares will be payable on the liquidation preference amount, on a non-cumulative basis, when, as and if declared by the board of directors of the Company, at a rate of 7.50% per annum, quarterly in arrears, on March 15, June 15, September 15 and December 15 of each year, beginning on June 15, 2015, from and including the date of original issuance.
