American Realty Capital Trust Announces Third Quarter 2012 Operating Results PR Newswire NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2012 NEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --American Realty Capital Trust, Inc., (NASDAQ: ARCT) ("ARCT" or the "Company") announced today its operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. Operating highlights are provided below. All per share results are reported on a fully diluted basis. "Following the positive performance for the first half of the year, American Realty Capital Trust had another impressive quarter," said William M. Kahane, Chief Executive Officer of ARCT. "We not only posted solid financial results, but our common stock returned over 9% for the quarter on a total return basis, outperforming the S&P 500, the MSCI REIT Index the Russell 2000 and a portfolio of its triple net peers by wide margins. We purchased over $30 million in new acquisitions at an average capitalization rate of 8.38%, bringing the total portfolio tenant base to 63 high-quality, primarily investment grade, tenants. We also increased the Company's annualized monthly dividend commencing in September from $0.70 to $0.715 per share." "We are extremely proud of the portfolio we have built for our shareholders. With the recent announcement of the pending acquisition of ARCT by Realty Income Corporation, we believe that we are delivering to our shareholders the best publicly-traded net lease REIT in the real estate industry. In an industry where size matters, upon completion of the transaction, Realty Income will be the 18^th largest REIT and, we believe, financially stronger than any of its competitors. Our companies' combined portfolio will be exceptionally well positioned for continued earnings growth and increasing dividends. While in some respects this transaction is bittersweet for me and those who built ARCT, we are confident in Tom Lewis, CEO of Realty Income, and his team, and are proud to pass the torch to them."

The facility bears interest at the rate of LIBOR plus 195 to 275 basis points, depending on the Company's leverage ratio. Net proceeds from the term loan were used to repay outstanding balances on the Company's $330.0 million revolving line of credit and for general working capital purposes. The effective annualized interest rate on the term loan was 2.61% at September 30, 2012. The weighted average interest rate on the $948.5million of outstanding debt at September 30, 2012 was 3.99%. Potential rating upgrade Moody's placed ARCT's Ba2 issuer rating on review for possible upgrade. This action was a result of the announcement that Realty Income entered into an agreement with ARCT to acquire all the Company's outstanding shares. Moody's will continue to monitor the progress and completion of the proposed transaction. Once the transaction closes, ARCT's issuer rating will be withdrawn since there will be no remaining outstanding shares of common stock available. Repurchase of joint venture non-controlling interests Through October 28, 2012, the Company has acquired non-controlling joint venture interests in six joint venture arrangements totaling $22.1 million and representing 90.5% of the outstanding non-controlling interests at the beginning of the year.

Incentive listing fee paid In connection with the listing of the Company's common stock on the NASDAQ on March 1, 2012, and as previously disclosed, our former sponsor was entitled to receive an incentive listing fee based on total shareholder return from inception of the Company through the listing date in excess of a return of capital plus a specified hurdle.

Supplemental Information Supplemental information on the Company's third quarter 2012 operations can be found in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Monday, October 29, 2012. The report is titled Quarterly Supplemental Information: Third Quarter 2012. Information in this report includes, in addition to other data: 1) Consolidated Balance Sheet and Income Statement Details; 2) Funds from Operations and Adjusted Funds from Operations details; 3) Dividend Summary; 4) Debt Summary and Mortgage Notes Payable; and 5) Portfolio Details. Funds from Operations and Adjusted Funds from Operations Definitions ARCT considers FFO and AFFO, which is FFO as adjusted to exclude acquisition-related fees and expenses, amortization of above-market lease assets and liabilities, amortization of deferred financing costs, straight-line rent, non-cash mark-to-market adjustments, amortization of restricted stock, non-cash compensation and non-recurring gains and losses useful indicators of the performance of a REIT. Because FFO calculations exclude such factors as depreciation and amortization of real estate assets and gains or losses from sales of operating real estate assets (which can vary among owners of identical assets in similar conditions based on historical cost accounting and useful-life estimates), they facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between other REITs in our peer group. ARCT also adds back to net income which is used in deriving FFO, certain costs associated with our NASDAQ listing, management internalization and mortgage prepayments as these expenses and losses do not properly reflect our operating performance. Accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered the presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves. Additionally, the Company believes that AFFO, by excluding acquisition-related fees and expenses, amortization of above-market lease assets and liabilities, amortization of deferred financing costs, straight-line rent, non-cash mark-to-market adjustments, amortization of restricted stock, non-cash compensation and non-recurring gains and losses, provides information consistent with management's analysis of the operating performance of the properties. By providing AFFO, ARCT believes it is presenting useful information that assists investors and analysts to better assess the sustainability of our operating performance. Further, ARCT believes AFFO is useful in comparing the sustainability of our operating performance with the sustainability of the operating performance of other real estate companies, including exchange-traded and non-traded REITs. As a result, the Company believes that the use of FFO and AFFO, together with the required GAAP presentations, provide a more complete understanding of our performance relative to our peers and a more informed and appropriate basis on which to make decisions involving operating, financing, and investing activities.
