Good morning on behalf of American Realty Capital Trust and at senior management I would like to welcome to the Company’s Second Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. (Operator Instructions).

I would now like to turn the conference over to William Kahane, Chief Executive Officer of American Realty Capital Trust. Mr. Kahane, please go ahead, sir.

William Kahane

Thank you operator, welcome everyone and thank you for participating in American Realty Capital Trust, second quarter 2012 earnings call. I am pleased to be joined today by Brian Jones, your Chief Financial Officer. Let me begin by furnishing you an overview of recent events before I turn the call over to Brian to discuss our operating results for Q2.

Following Brian’s comments I will also provide a portfolio update on our real estate holdings. Before I begin as a reminder we will make certain comments that maybe considered to be forward-looking statements under federal securities law during this call. The company’s actual future results may differ significantly from the matters discussed in any such forward-looking statements. I personally I am extremely pleased with our second quarter results and confident in our recently published earnings guidance through year end 2012 and for calendar for 2013. That confidence is a result of our business model namely investing in real estate at least long term to strong corporate credit tenants, investing in real estate net leased long term; this model offers few surprises on the downside.
