EXPLANATORY NOTE

DEREGISTRATION OF SECURITIES

On February 25, 2005, National Interstate Corporation (the “Company”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (Registration Statement No. 333-122998) registering 1,338,800 common shares, $0.01 par value per share, of the Company (the “Common Shares”), issuable under the National Interstate Corporation Long Term Incentive Plan (the “LTIP”). On November 7, 2013, the Company filed with the SEC a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (Registration No. 333-192152) registering an additional 500,000 Common Shares issuable under the LTIP.

On August 7, 2007, the Company filed with the SEC a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (Registration Statement No. 333-145194) registering 250,000 Common Shares issuable under the National Interstate Savings and Profit Sharing Plan (together with the LTIP, the “Plans”).

On November 10, 2016, the Company completed the merger (the “Merger”) contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated July 25, 2016, by and among Great American Insurance Company, an Ohio corporation (“Parent”), GAIC Alloy, Inc., an Ohio corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), and the Company, as amended by Amendment No. 1, dated as of August 15, 2016 (the “Merger Agreement”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub merged with and into the Company, the separate corporate existence of Merger Sub ceased and the Company continued its corporate existence as the surviving corporation in the Merger with Parent owning 100% of the equity interests of the Company.

In connection with the Merger, the Company has terminated all offerings of the Company’s securities pursuant to Registration Statement Nos. 333-122998, 333-192152 and 333-145194 (collectively, the “Registration Statements”). Accordingly, pursuant to the undertaking contained in the Registration Statements to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering, the Company is filing these Post-Effective Amendments to the Registration Statements to amend the Registration Statements, and such Registration Statements are hereby amended such that all securities of the Company registered under the Registration Statements that remain unsold as of the effective time of the Merger, if any, are deregistered.
