  oDebt offering: $310 million underwritten 3.00% convertible notes offering

  oSenior corporate credit facility: Upsized senior corporate credit facility
    by $250 million as of August 1, 2013, providing total financing capacity

    certain conditions, of up to $2.5 billion.
  oCredit facility capacity: Credit facility balance as of June 30, 2013
    consisted of $600 million term loan, providing $1.1 billion of capacity
    including new commitments.

"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

"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

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
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).

Supplemental Information

Supplemental information on the Company's second quarter 2013 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 August6, 2013. 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

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.
