American Realty Capital Properties Announces Monthly Common Stock and Series F Preferred Stock Dividends for February 2014

Following Recent Approval of Cole Merger by both Companies' Stockholders, Annualized Common Stock Dividend Increase to $1.00 per Share Expected to Become Effective with February 2014 Dividend

NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- American Realty Capital Properties, Inc. ("ARCP") (NASDAQ: "ARCP") announced today that, pursuant to the prior authorization of its board of directors, ARCP has declared an annualized dividend of $1.00 per share to be paid monthly to stockholders of record at the close of business on the 8th day of each month, payable on the 15th day of such month, effective with the closing of ARCP's pending merger with Cole Real Estate Investments, Inc. ("Cole"). The per share annualized dividend of $1.00 reflects an increase of $0.06 per share from $0.94 per share to $1.00 per share, effective with the merger closing. Following approvals of the merger by both ARCP's and Cole's stockholders, ARCP expects that the annualized dividend of $1.00 per share will now become effective with the February 2014 dividend. Accordingly, on February 14, 2014, ARCP would pay a distribution of $0.08333 per share to stockholders of record at the close of business on February 7, 2014.

Additionally, ARCP will pay its first monthly dividend to holders of its 6.70% Series F Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share ("Series F Preferred Stock"), in respect of the period commencing January 3, 2014 through February 14, 2014, on February 17, 2014. Holders of Series F Preferred Stock on February 1, 2014 will be eligible to receive such dividend. The dividend for the Series F Preferred Stock accrues daily on a 360 day annual basis equal to an annualized dividend rate of $1.675 per share, or $0.13958333 per 30 day month. Because the initial payment on February 17, 2014 includes the additional accrual period from January 3, 2014 through January 14, 2014, the aggregate payment to Series F Preferred Stock holders as of February 1, 2014 will be $0.19076388 per share.

Furthermore, pursuant to the merger agreement between ARCP, Cole and a related party, ARCP and Cole agreed to pay a "stub period" dividend to their respective stockholders for the period since their most recent record date through the last business day prior to the closing of the merger. The "stub period" dividend will reflect a fraction of ARCP's monthly common stock dividend by dividing the amount of days elapsed since the last common stock dividend record date divided by the amount of days in the month in which the "stub period" dividend will be paid. Such "stub period" dividend will be paid on the last business day prior to the closing of the merger.
