Insurer AmTrust Unveils $2.7 Billion Plan to Go Private

As promised last month, the majority shareholders of AmTrust Financial Services Inc. have set forth a $2.7 billion plan to take the insurer private.

The deal is being funded by founding family members and shareholders George and Leah Karfunkel along with its current CEO Barry Zyskind and private equity funds from Stone Point Capital. The Karfunkels and Zyskind currently own 55 percent of AmTrust.

AmTrust to Sell Its Outstanding Common Stock to Its Founding Family and Stone Point Capital for at $2.7 Billion
NEW YORK - AmTrust Financial Services Inc.ís founding family and Stone Point Capital LLC have entered into an agreement for both to acquire all of AmTrustís outstanding common stock for about $2.7 billion.

Under terms of the proposed merger, common shareholders who arenít affiliated with the family ó including AmTrust Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Barry Zyskind and George and Leah Karfunkel ó will receive $13.50 in cash per share, a 33% premium to the closing stock price the day before the offer was announced (Bestís News Service, Jan. 10, 2018).

The agreement is with Evergreen Parent L.P., which was formed with private equity funds managed by the family and Stone Point.

ďAs a private enterprise, we will be able to focus on long-term decisions, without the emphasis on short-term results,Ē Zyskind said in an AmTrust statement.
