American Realty Capital Trust (NASDAQ: ARCT)

NEW YORK, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — American Realty Capital Trust, Inc. (“ARCT” or the “Company”) announced today its addition to a number of S&P indices, including the S&P Total Market Index, the S&P Global BMI (Broad Market Index), and the S&P Developed BMI (Broad Market Index). ARCT was also included in a number of S&P’s custom indices. The rebalance for these indices took place Friday, June 15, 2012, at the market close.
