American Financial Group, Inc. Declares Quarterly Dividend and Announces Termination of Dual Listing of Common Stock

April 1, 2015

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 1, 2015-- American Financial Group, Inc. (NYSE/Nasdaq: AFG) announced that it has declared a regular dividend of $0.25 per share of American Financial Group Common Stock. The dividend is payable on April 27, 2015 to holders of record on April 15, 2015.

The Company also announced today that it plans to terminate and voluntarily withdraw the dual listing of its common stock from the Nasdaq exchange and list its common stock solely on the NYSE. AFG obtained a dual listing for its common stock on Nasdaq in April 2004. After many years of experience with dual listing, AFG has determined that its common stock should trade on a single national securities exchange in order to, among other things, eliminate the administrative costs and burdens associated with maintaining the listing of its common stock on multiple securities exchanges. AFG anticipates that its last trading day of its dual listing on the Nasdaq exchange will be April 16, 2015.
