New York, NY – March 3, 2014 – W. P. Carey Inc. (NYSE: WPC) (“W. P. Carey” or the “Company”), a global net-lease real estate investment trust (“REIT”), today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013.

Acquired seven properties for a total of $347.1 million
Structured $1.4 billion of investments on behalf of the Managed REITs
Raised its annualized dividend rate to $3.48 per share in the fourth quarter, an increase of 31.8% over the fourth quarter of 2012 and the Company’s 51st consecutive quarterly increase
Declared a special distribution of $0.11 per share in the fourth quarter
Generated a total shareholder return of approximately 23.0% for the full year
Subsequent to year-end, the Company:
Completed its merger with CPA®:16 – Global, valued at approximately $4.0 billion
Received investment grade corporate ratings of BBB and Baa2 from Standard & Poor's Ratings Services and Moody’s Investors Service, respectively
Closed on a new credit agreement that increased the capacity of its unsecured line of credit from $625.0 million to $1.25 billion, comprised of a $1.0 billion revolving line of credit and a $250.0 million term loan

QUARTERLY AND FULL YEAR RESULTS

AFFO for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $78.1 million, or $1.12 per diluted share, compared to $78.8 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012. For the 2013 full year, AFFO was $294.2 million, or $4.22 per diluted share, compared to $180.6 million, or $3.76 per diluted share, for the 2012 full year, an increase of $113.6 million and $0.46 per diluted share, respectively, due primarily to income from properties acquired in the Company’s merger with CPA®:15, which closed on September 28, 2012 (the “CPA®:15 Merger”), partially offset by the cessation of asset management revenue received from CPA®:15 upon completion of the CPA®:15 Merger.
