    American Realty Capital Trust (ARCT) shareholders approve the merger with Realty Income (O). There had been some question about approval and Realty Income's sweetening of the deal last week - with ARCT executives putting their skin in - no doubt helped smooth passage. (PR

    The merger deal likely in trouble, Realty Income (O) sweetens its offer to include an immediate cash payment to American Realty Capital (ARCT) investors of $0.35/share (2.9% of the stock price). Helping to fund the $55.5M payment are the Chairman and CEO of ARCT. Upon closing, Reality Income announces a dividend increase of $0.35/share, a near tripling of the expected post-merger bump. (PR)

    More on the Realty Income (O) purchase of American Realty (ARCT): The purchase reflects Realty Income's desire to improve tenant quality, says Joshua Barber, but at the cost of getting into new property types (non-retail). He has his doubts about the transaction improving on an "historically strong operating profile."
