Nicholas S. Schorsch, Chairman of ARCT, said, “We are extremely pleased to have reached this amended agreement with Realty Income. The ARCT board is confident that this increased offer from Realty Income not only achieves the highest attainable value for our stockholders, but also allows them to participate in the potential upside of the combined company. The $0.35 per share cash payment will provide ARCT stockholders with an immediate increase in transaction value of approximately $55.5 million, and the Realty Income dividend increase will enhance the income stream for ARCT stockholders as the combined company continues to grow.”Realty Income and ARCT have confirmed that if ARCT stockholders do not approve the merger on its revised terms, then the Merger Agreement will be terminated, and if Realty Income obtains its stockholder approval, Realty Income will receive $4.0 million in expense reimbursement from ARCT. As disclosed in ARCT’s January 2, 2013 press release, the ARCT management team will continue to operate and grow ARCT consistent with its established operating, investment and capitalization strategies, should the Merger Agreement be terminated.
