Venable represented American Realty Capital Properties, Inc. (“ARCP”) in connection with its recent acquisition of Cole Credit Property Trust, Inc. (“CCPT”). The transaction included a tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of CCPT common stock, which resulted in the acquisition by ARCP of approximately 77% of CCPT’s shares, followed by the exercise of a top-up option by a wholly owned subsidiary of ARCP pursuant to which ARCP acquired more than 90% of the outstanding shares of CCPT. ARCP then completed its acquisition of CCPT through a short-form merger. The acquisition added 39 properties to ARCP’s portfolio. The transaction closed on May 20, 2014.
