Nov 30, 2015, 17:14 ET from American Homes 4 Rent

AGOURA HILLS, Calif., Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- American Homes 4 Rent (NYSE: AMH), a leading provider of high quality single-family rental homes ("the Company"), today posted the revised "Home Price Appreciation Factor" and "Home Price Appreciation Amount" through September 30, 2015, as those terms are defined in the final prospectuses for the Company's 5% Series A, 5% Series B and 5.5% Series C Participating Preferred Shares (NYSE: AMHPRA, AMHPRB and AMHPRC).  The computations of these amounts are based on the results of the House Price Index of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, or FHFA, known as the Quarterly Purchase-Only Index, or POI, specifically the non-seasonally adjusted "Purchase-Only Index" for the "100 Largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas" as of September 30, 2015, which was released November 25, 2015.

Based on the weighting among our top 20 markets established under the terms of our 5% Series A and 5% Series B Participating Preferred Shares, cumulative home price appreciation for the period from June 30, 2013, to September 30, 2015, was 15.91%, resulting in a Home Price Appreciation Factor of 7.95%.  The Home Price Appreciation Amount on our 5% Series A and 5% Series B Participating Preferred Shares through September 30, 2015, was $1.989.

Additionally, based on the weighting among our top 20 markets established under the terms of our 5.5% Series C Participating Preferred Shares, cumulative home price appreciation for the period from December 31, 2013, to September 30, 2015, was 12.89%, resulting in a Home Price Appreciation Factor of 6.44%.  The Home Price Appreciation Amount on our 5.5% Series C Participating Preferred Shares through September 30, 2015, was $1.611.

The computation of these amounts appears at the end of this press release and has also been posted to the "For Investors" page of the Company's website (www.americanhomes4rent.com).  The Company anticipates announcing the next update to these amounts in approximately three months.
