NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Realty Capital Properties, Inc. ("ARCP" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: "ARCP") announced today that it has placed $54.8 million of properties under agreement which it intends to close in the first quarter of 2013. The acquisitions will be made at a weighted average capitalization rate of 8.9% (calculated by dividing annualized rental income on a straight-line basis plus operating expense reimbursement revenue, less property operating expenses, by base purchase price).
