FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
American Realty Capital Trust Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End 2011 Results
New York, NY, February 15, 2012 – American Realty Capital Trust, Inc., (“ARCT” or the “REIT”) announced today its operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011.
“The fourth quarter of 2011 evidenced the long-term earnings power of ARCT, as we completed the acquisition phase of the strategy we commenced just four years ago this month. Our team accretively invested the remaining proceeds from our offering by acquiring an additional $283 million of investment properties within our core discipline,” said Nicholas S. Schorsch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the REIT. “We are doing exactly what we said we would do from the start. The team’s hard work and support from our valued broker-dealers, financial advisors and their investors have afforded us a tremendous opportunity to forever change the public non-listed industry,” added Mr. Schorsch. “The Company’s listing on The NASDAQ Global Select Market anticipated later this month clearly demonstrates our alignment with our shareholders’ interest as we position ARCT for a profitable exit.”
“Adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, for the fourth quarter of 2011 were $25.5 million, an 11.3% increase over the prior quarter,” observed Brian S. Block, EVP and Chief Financial Officer of the Company. “On a pro forma basis, factoring in a full period impact of properties acquired mid-quarter, and subsequent to the significant savings to be realized from internalizing the management team, distributions will continue to be fully covered from cash flows provided by our real estate operations.”
