On July 1, 2014, Carl C. Icahn resigned from the Board of Directors of American
Railcar Industries, Inc. (the "Company"). Mr. Carl Icahn's resignation from the
Board of Directors of the Company was not a result of any disagreement with the
Company or the Company's Board of Directors. Mr. Carl Icahn resigned because he
currently serves on several boards of directors and wanted to decrease his
number of directorships as a result of certain ISS standards.

through which Mr. Carl Icahn manages investment funds, since April 2014. Mr.
Mather is responsible for identifying, analyzing, and monitoring investment
opportunities and portfolio companies for Icahn Capital. Prior to joining Icahn
Capital, Mr. Mather was Managing Director at Goldman Sachs & Co, where he served
in various investment roles from 1998 to 2012.  Mr. Mather has been: a director
of CVR Refining, LP, an independent downstream energy limited partnership, since
May 2014, a director of CVR Energy, Inc., a diversified holding company
primarily engaged in the petroleum refining and nitrogen fertilizer
manufacturing industries, since May 2014, and a director of the Loan
Syndications and Trading Association (LSTA), an organization that develops
policies and market practices with firms transacting in loans and related
claims, in 2011; CVR Refining and CVR Energy are each indirectly controlled by
Mr. Carl Icahn.  Mr. Mather received a B.A. from Rutgers College and attended
the United States Naval Academy.
There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Mather and any other
persons pursuant to which he was selected as a director of the Company, and he
has no direct or indirect material interest in any transaction required to be
disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
Appointment of Board Chairman
Also on July 1, 2014, the Board of Directors of the Company, pursuant to the
Company's Bylaws, appointed SungHwan Cho to serve the role of Chairman of the
