Juan E. Monteverde, a partner at Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities firm headquartered in New York City, is investigating the Board of Directors of Cole Real Estate Investments, Inc. (“Cole Real Estate” or the “Company”) (NYSE: COLE) for potential breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with their conduct related to the sale of the Company to American Realty Capital Properties, Inc. (ARCP) in a cash or stock deal valued at approximately $11.2 billion. Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Cole Real Estate’s stockholders will receive either $13.82 or 1.0929 shares of American Realty common stock for each share of Cole Real Estate common stock they own. The stock share offer is valued at $14.59 per Cole common share based on American Realty's closing price of $13.35 on October 22, 2013. The offer price only represents a premium of 13.8% based on Cole Real Estate's closing price of $12.82 on October 22, 2013.
