NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Realty Capital Global Trust, Inc. ("ARC Global") announced today that its board of directors and management mutually agreed to eliminate the payment of asset management fees in cash to its advisor, effective with the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Instead of paying asset management fees in the form of cash or restricted stock as previously approved, ARC Global's advisor will receive operating partnership units ("OP units"), which will constitute profits interests and will be forfeited unless a performance hurdle is met. Going forward, the OP units would be received on a quarterly basis, subject to the approval of ARC Global's board of directors.
The OP units will only vest to the extent 100% of shareholder capital is returned plus payment to investors of an annual 6% cumulative, pre-tax, non-compounded return on the capital contributed by investors.
"American Realty Capital continues to implement best practices in all of its products as ARC Global is now our fifth product to subordinate asset management fees and eliminate the payment of those fees in cash and restricted stock," stated Nicholas S. Schorsch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ARC Global.
