ARCP remains strongly committed to its offer, which it believes is clearly in the best interests of the stockholders of both companies and the entire broker dealer community. ARCP urges the many members of the non-traded REIT community who have expressed their strong support for ARCP's proposal and their dismay at CCPT III's planned internalization transaction to speak up and let CCPT III know what its stockholders desire. Finally, ARCP encourages the CCPT III board of directors to give our proposal the careful consideration it deserves. ARCP remains ready, willing and able to engage in constructive discussions with CCPT III at any time. ARCP's proposal is fully financed and the Company is positioned to close this transaction promptly with much greater surety than the internalization transaction currently contemplated and reaffirmed by CCPT III's board of directors.
