PHOENIX, July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of American Realty Capital Properties, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARCP) ("ARCP" or the "Company") has scheduled the Company's 2015 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the "Annual Meeting") for Tuesday, September 29, 2015. Stockholders of record as of the close of business on Thursday, August 6, 2015 will be entitled to notice of and to vote at the Annual Meeting. Because the September 29, 2015 Annual Meeting date is more than 30 days after the anniversary of the Company's 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the deadline for submitting stockholder proposals made pursuant to Rule 14a-8 ("Rule 14a-8") of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and for non-Rule 14a-8 stockholder proposals has been extended.
For Rule 14a-8 proposals, the Company has determined that Wednesday, July 29, 2015 is a reasonable deadline by which it can receive Rule 14a-8 proposals from stockholders and meet its anticipated schedule for printing and sending its proxy materials for the Annual Meeting. Accordingly, the Company intends to view any proposals received after July 29, 2015 as not having been received within the time period set forth in Rule 14a-8.
For stockholder proposals not submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8, the stockholder must give timely notice thereof in writing and in accordance with the requirements set forth in the Company's bylaws to the Company's Secretary not later than 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on Monday, July 20, 2015. Any proposal submitted outside this timeframe, other than a proposal submitted pursuant to Rule 14a-8, will not be considered timely and will be excluded from consideration at the Annual Meeting.
Proposals and notices of proposals should be mailed to: American Realty Capital Properties, Inc., 2325 E. Camelback Road, Suite 1100, Phoenix, AZ 85016, Attn: Secretary.
