American Realty Capital Properties Successfully Transitions to Self-Management on Schedule

ARCP Positions Itself as Leading Net Lease Company with Strong Executive Leadership and Best-in-Class Portfolio

NEW YORK, Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- American Realty Capital Properties, Inc. ("ARCP") (NASDAQ: ARCP) announced today that it has successfully completed its transition to self-management on its previously indicated schedule, and within three business days of completing its acquisition of American Realty Capital Trust IV, Inc. ("ARCT IV"). ARCP will continue to be led by two of its founders and current executive officers, Nicholas S. Schorsch and Brian S. Block, as Executive Chairman and Chief Financial Officer, respectively.  Messrs. Schorsch and Block are two of the key executives who built ARCP and assembled its property portfolio since its initial public offering in September 2011. Additionally, ARCP's core executive leadership team now includes David S. Kay, President, Lisa Beeson, Chief Operating Officer, and Lisa Pavelka McAlister, Chief Accounting Officer.

In connection with becoming self-managed, ARCP terminated its management agreement with its external manager, ARC Properties Advisors, LLC (the "Manager"), effective today. ARCP now intends to use only certain remaining services of the Manager through the close of its merger with Cole Real Estate Investments, Inc. ("Cole") in order to provide for a smooth transition toward becoming a $21 billion leading self-managed publicly traded net lease REIT.  The pending merger with Cole should be completed in January 2014, eight weeks earlier than expected, subject to the approval of both companies' stockholders. ARCP will not pay any internalization fee to the Manager in connection with the termination of the management agreement.

Nicholas S. Schorsch, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ARCP, remarked, "Today, we believe we have completed another significant step in our plan to deliberately grow ARCP into a leading net lease REIT.  We began delivering on our promises to grow this enterprise opportunistically with our successful acquisitions of American Realty Capital Trust III, Inc., CapLease, Inc. and ARCT IV, which closed last week, and the purchase of large property portfolios from GE Capital, Inland and Fortress. With the completion of self-management and the imminent close of our acquisition of Cole, we have built a best-in-class company with a leading portfolio and management team."

David S. Kay, President of ARCP, commented, "I am pleased to have taken my place as part of such an impressive executive management team. We have built a leadership group that will allow ARCP to successfully and prudently raise capital, deploy that capital and continue to build a best-in-class net lease real estate portfolio that will provide current stockholders with attractive and accretive returns."
