Other Activity oCapLease merger: Announced on May 28, 2013 $2.2 billion acquisition of CapLease Inc. ("CapLease"), which is expected to close mid-September, with the CapLease special stockholder meeting scheduled for September 10, 2013. oARCT IV merger: Announced on July 2, 2013 $3.1 billion acquisition of American Realty Capital Trust IV, Inc.

"The second quarter of 2013 was about deliberate and predictable execution in all aspects of our business," commented ARCP Chairman and CEO Nicholas S. Schorsch. "We made great strides in capital markets activities by closing a $900 million private placement, upsizing our senior secured credit facility to $1.7 billion of capacity as well as finalizing a $310 million convertible debt offering. This execution serves as the framework of building a long-term balance sheet as we continue to enhance ARCP's position as the leader in the net lease sector. Our strategic vision is furthered with the completion of the two pending mergers, a substantial and highly accretive acquisition pipeline and a growing team of seasoned real estate professionals as we look towards a future internalization event." "Our acquisition team continues to identify properties that meet our investment criteria, complement our existing holdings, and increase our portfolio diversification," noted ARCP President Michael Weil. "Through a tremendous team effort, we reached our full year 2013 acquisition targets, excluding merger transactions, by June 30, 2013, and based on the identified pipeline, including nearly $690 million of properties currently under contract, we anticipate an additional $1.1 billion of organic accretive acquisitions by year end. Equally as important, we continue to be highly selective in what we acquire, and at the same time, expect to make such acquisitions at an average capitalization rate of approximately 8% in regard to second half 2013 acquisitions." "As in other areas of our business, execution this quarter in the capital markets arena resulted in meaningfully positive results for our shareholders," remarked Brian D. Jones, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of ARCP. "We demonstrated the sponsorship of our existing shareholder base with the $900 million private placement, and the successful $310 million underwritten convertible notes offering showed access to a variety of capital sources. We also expect to expand significantly our sell-side research coverage from the lead underwriters in that offering. Our bank lending partner group has broadened and deepened its support of our growth with additional commitments to our credit facility. And, as we continue with the process of increasing our use of unsecured, long term, fixed rate debt, we are not only accessing yet another new capital source, but also engaging more formally with rating agencies in pursuit of an investment grade credit rating." "We are pleased to announce revised 2014 earnings guidance reflecting our progress to date with respect to utilizing fixed rate match funded debt financing, including $1.4 billion of five, seven and ten year fixed rate senior unsecured debt at an average interest rate of 4.10%, which also allows us to maintain $1.0 billion of unused capacity under our credit facility," added Brian S. Block, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of ARCP. "We have greater visibility of the two pending mergers scheduled to close by the end of the third quarter and the capability of utilizing financing arrangements in-place at the time of acquisition that provide us with flexibility. Our current under leveraged balance sheet and ample credit facility availability afford us the option to fund these transactions without issuing additional common equity at this time, but rather to do so selectively at the appropriate stock price in order to fund future accretive organic acquisitions." 2014 Guidance Update As a result of increased 2013 acquisition volume and more favorable than expected pricing, visibility on pending mergers and advancement of plans to increase the duration and amount of fixed rate borrowing, ARCP has revised 2014 per share AFFO guidance to $1.14 to $1.18 per share. 2014 AFFO Low High Guidance AFFO $465.8M $441.9M Weighted average shares outstanding 407.9M 376.0M AFFO per share $1.14 $1.18 Year-end EBITDA run rate $686.6M $686.6M Year-end Debt / EBITDA 6.9x 7.6x The low- and high-end of this range reflect additional interest costs related to increased duration of fixed rate borrowings to match fund assets and liabilities, as previously discussed by the Company, the initial steps of which are already underway, and which includes $1.4 billion of 5-, 7-, and 10-year senior unsecured debt. Based on preliminary indications and prior experiences, ARCP estimates that cash consideration elections by ARCT IV shareholders will total approximately $160 million, or approximately 7.5% of total transaction consideration, significantly below the maximum 25% cash consideration offered. Estimated 2014 acquisitions total $1.0 billion, to be purchased at an 8.25% average capitalization rate, funded with 65% common equity and 35% fixed rate debt.The high-end of the range is achieved if approximately $500 million of fixed rate mortgage debt held by CapLease is assumed by ARCP rather than repaid with the proceeds from the sale of common equity and approximately $40 million of related defeasance costs are not incurred, which results in zero incremental equity issuance in connection with the CapLease transaction. Property Portfolio As of June30, 2013, the Company owned 1,181 freestanding, single-tenant, 100% occupied net leased properties comprised of 19.4 million square feet (excluding one vacant property classified as held-for-sale). These properties are located in 48 states plus Puerto Rico and include 180 tenants, operating in 21 distinct industries. The weighted average remaining primary lease term of the June 30, 2013 portfolio is 10 years and 69.3% of annualized rental income is from tenants with investment grade ratings as determined by a major credit rating agency (attributing the rating of each parent company to its wholly owned subsidiary, as applicable).

The supplemental information report is titled "Quarterly Supplemental Information: Second Quarter 2013." 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; and (4) Portfolio Details. Funds From Operations, Core Funds From Operations and Adjusted Funds From Operations (FFO/Core FFO/AFFO) We define FFO, a non-GAAP measure, consistent with the standards established by the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of NAREIT, as revised in February 2004 (the "White Paper"). The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding gains or losses from sales of property but including asset impairment writedowns, plus depreciation and amortization, after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated to reflect FFO. Our FFO calculation complies with NAREIT's policy described above. The historical accounting convention used for real estate assets requires straight-line depreciation of buildings and improvements, which implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time, especially if such assets are not adequately maintained or repaired and renovated as required by relevant circumstances and/or is requested or required by lessees for operational purposes in order to maintain the value disclosed. We believe that, since real estate values historically rise and fall with market conditions, including inflation, interest rates, the business cycle, unemployment and consumer spending, presentations of operating results for a REIT using historical accounting for depreciation may be less informative. Historical accounting for real estate involves the use of U.S. GAAP. Any other method of accounting for real estate such as the fair value method cannot be construed to be any more accurate or relevant than the comparable methodologies of real estate valuation found in U.S. GAAP. Nevertheless, we believe that the use of FFO, which excludes the impact of real estate related depreciation and amortization, provides a more complete understanding of our performance to investors and to management, and when compared year over year, reflects the impact on our operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, general and administrative expenses, and interest costs, which may not be immediately apparent from net income. We also add back to net income deriving FFO certain costs associated with our Merger and other transactions as these expenses and transactions do not reflect our operations in the current period. However, FFO, core FFO and AFFO, as described below, should not be construed to be more relevant or accurate than the current U.S. GAAP methodology in calculating net income or in its applicability in evaluating our operating performance. The method utilized to evaluate the value and performance of real estate under U.S. GAAP should be construed as a more relevant measure of operational performance and considered more prominently than the non-GAAP FFO, core FFO and AFFO measures and the adjustments to U.S. GAAP in calculating FFO, core FFO and AFFO. We consider FFO, core FFO adjusted to exclude acquisition related costs and AFFO, adjusted to exclude certain other non-cash income or expense items, 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. Accounting for real estate assets in accordance with U.S. 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, we believe that core FFO and AFFO, by excluding acquisition-related fees and expenses, provides information consistent with management's analysis of the operating performance of the properties. By providing core FFO and AFFO, we believe we are presenting useful information that assists investors and analysts to better assess the sustainability of our operating performance. Further, we believe core FFO and 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, we believe that the use of FFO, core FFO and AFFO, together with the required U.S. 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. FFO, core FFO and AFFO are non-GAAP financial measures and do not represent net income as defined by U.S. GAAP. FFO, core FFO and AFFO do not represent cash flows from operations as defined by U.S. GAAP, are not indicative of cash available to fund all cash flow needs and liquidity, including our ability to pay distributions and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, for purposes of evaluating our operating performance. Other REITs may not define FFO in accordance with the current NAREIT definition (as we do) or may interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than we do and/or calculate core FFO and AFFO differently than we do. Consequently, our presentation of FFO, core FFO and AFFO may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures presented by other REITs.
