AMERCO Announces Special Cash Dividend


Reno, Nev. (December 6 , 2013 ) AMERCO (Nasdaq: UHAL) , the parent of U-Haul International, Inc., Oxford Life Insurance Company, Repwest Insurance Company and Amerco Real Estate Company, on December 4, 2013, declared a special cash dividend on its Common Stock of $1.00 per share. The dividend will be payable F ebruary 14, 2014 to holders of record on January 10, 2014.


AMERCO is the parent company of U-Haul International, Inc. U-Haul is in the shared use business and was founded on the fundamental philosophy that the division of use and specialization of owners hip is good for both U-Haul customers and the environment.


Since 1945, U-Haul has been the choice for the do-it-yourself mover . U-Haul customers' patronage has enabled the Company to maintain the largest rental fleet in the “do-it-yourself” moving industr y , which includes a fleet of trucks, trailers and towing devices. U-Haul also offers storage throughout North America. U-Haul is the consumer’s number one choice as the largest installer of permanent trailer hitches in the automotive aftermarket industry. The Company supplies alternative-fuel for vehicles and backyard barbecues as one of the nation’s largest retailers of propane.


U-Haul was founded by a Navy veteran who grew up during the Great Depression. Tires and gas were still rationed or in short supp ly during the late 1940s when U-Haul began serving U.S. customers. Today, that background is central to the U-Haul Sustainability Program: Serving the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future gener ations to meet their own needs. Our commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle includes fuel-efficient moving vans, neighborhood proximity, moving box reuse, moving pads made from discarded material and packing peanuts that are 100% biodegradable.  Learn more about these facts and others a t uhaul.com/sustainability.
