FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

American Realty Capital Trust Announces Strong First Quarter 2012 Operating Results, Reaffirms 2012 Guidance

 

New York, New York, May 7, 2012

– American Realty Capital Trust, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARCT) (“ARCT” or the “Company”) announced today its operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. All per share results are reported on a fully diluted basis.

 

“Our first quarter was all about execution, as you can see from the concrete progress we have been able to achieve. We are delighted with our first quarter results and subsequent events. Our focus, since listing the Company on NASDAQ and internalizing our management team, has been on reducing our cost of capital so as to improve our earnings. We believe, based on our current results, that we have accomplished this. Accordingly, we are reaffirming our previously provided FFO and AFFO guidance of $0.79 to $0.82 per share,” explained William M. Kahane, Chief Executive Officer of ARCT. He added, “Over the next several quarters we plan to focus on continuing to grow the Company by harvesting our acquisition pipeline opportunities and further improving our balance sheet metrics to lift our credit ratings. We would like to extend a special vote of thanks to our more than 40,000 shareholders who contributed to the construction of this primarily high credit quality net leased property portfolio.”

 

First Quarter 2012 Highlights (as compared to same quarterly period in 2011)

·Funds from operations (FFO): $25.6 million, or $0.14 per share, excluding costs for listing the Company’s common stock, internalization of management and prepayment of debt; FFO on an annualized basis for the month ended March 31, 2012, reflecting our operations as a self-advised, publicly-traded REIT, is $123.6 million, or $0.78 per share, excluding acquisition activities, previously forecasted to be approximately $100 million in the next twelve months, compared to previously announced FFO guidance of $0.79 to $0.82 per share, inclusive of that same level of acquisitions.
