Investigation on Behalf of American Realty Capital Properties, Inc. Investors Announced by Kirby McInerney LLP Oct 31, 2014 06:56PM

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kirby McInerney LLP announced today that there are multiple class action lawsuits pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors who acquired American Realty Capital Properties, Inc. (“ARCP” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ARCP) securities during the period from February 27, 2014 through October 29, 2014 (the “Class Period”).

The lawsuits allege that ARCP violated federal securities laws. On October 29, 2014, the Company announced that its Audit Committee concluded that ARCP’s earnings releases and other financial communications are unreliable for the periods contained in the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013, and its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the fiscal periods ended March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2014.

According to the Company’s press release, the Audit Committee believes that ARCP overstated “certain amounts related to its non-controlling interests in the calculation of adjusted funds from operations (“AFFO”)” for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The Audit Committee believes that this error was identified but intentionally not corrected, and that other “AFFO and financial statement errors were intentionally made, resulting in an overstatement of AFFO and an understatement of the Company’s net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.” ARCP also announced that the Company’s CFO and Chief Accounting Officer have resigned from their positions in the wake of the disclosures of the accounting errors and subsequent coverups.

On this news, the price of ARCP stock dropped 23.91%, from $12.38 at close on October 28, 2014 to $9.42 at close on October 29, 2014.

If you acquired ARCP securities during the Class Period and wish to obtain additional information, please contact J. Brandon Walker, Esq. by email at, or telephone at (212) 699-1145, Melissa Fortunato, Esq. by email at, or telephone at (212) 699-1141, or toll free at (888) 529-4787, or by filling out this contact form.

International Financial Center Planned for Arizona Oct 31, 2014 06:53PM

PHOENIX, Oct. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This week in Beijing, a consortium of business leaders came together for a signing ceremony to develop what will be known as the "International Financial Center at Pier 202" (IFC@202) in the United States that will be located in Arizona. Members of the consortium selected Arizona as the site for their global financial investment, crediting Governor Jan Brewer's leadership in creating one of the premier economic and pro-business climates in the United States as reported by Forbes. 

Hong Kong based China International Development Investment Corporation Limited (CIDIC), its partners and US based TrendEx Holdings, LLC formed the Pier 202 Development Company LLC to develop the project. After a series of tours and meetings to introduce Governor Brewer and Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority, to several of the partners, agreements were signed to finalize the development of a USD $1.4 billion International Financial Center in the State of Arizona. The IFC@202 will be the first of its kind in North America and will connect Arizona to new international trade opportunities, strengthen existing bilateral relationships and serve as an iconic landmark that will further position Arizona as a preeminent location for global business and travel.

"The Arizona IFC will be a magnet for the international business community," said Oswald Wong, President of CIDIC who will serve as Chairman for the Pier 202 development. "This project shall attract and serve stock and commodity exchanges, premier banking, finance and investment institutions, financial law firms, trade industry leaders, and others.  By joining together this diverse group of over 25 leading "Fortune 500" international companies, including, but not limited to, China Xinxing Corporation (Group), Beijing Shougang Construction Co. Ltd. (SGCG), Norendar International Ltd, and Hebei Regen Engineering and Project Management Co. Ltd., the agreements that have been established mark a new era of relationship between global leaders for this IFC in America. The IFC@202 marks a significant step forward in the cooperation between the US and China for developing, owning and managing a world-class center designed to support the international financial services industry."

"This exciting new partnership underscores Arizona's unwavering commitment to the continued economic growth and prosperity of our state," said Governor Brewer who witnessed the signings. "In addition to creating quality jobs and generating considerable investment in Arizona, this new and innovative International Financial Center will advance our position as a global contender in the financial marketplace. Arizona's selection as the location for this significant project emphasizes the importance of pursuing and strengthening business relationships on an international scale, and is further validation of the pro-business environment we have been working hard to cultivate and maintain these past several years."

Robert Swagger, CEO for Pier 202 Development Company said that the plans have been a result of several years of work resulting in an unprecedented international collaboration of leading global development firms committed to delivering 6.1 million square feet of Class A office, ultra luxury condos, two five-star hotels, international cuisine and high-end retail, entertainment and community areas. The development will serve the needs of our global business partners throughout the financial services spectrum and represents the single largest development in the state's history. The design is a beautiful work of art that meets the requirements for Platinum LEED certification. "It is an honor to have such a highly reputable and experienced team of international leaders partnering for the long term success of this project. The development will establish a new standard for quality, luxury, sustainability and community collaboration. The IFC@202 has been designed to recognize and support the diverse needs of the international business community in all aspects resulting in a legacy project for the state of Arizona."

"The establishment of this world-class IFC will strengthen the depth of corporate, financial, academic and workforce assets available in Arizona," said Sandra Watson, President & CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. "The IFC will create a significant number of new jobs during and following construction, and will showcase innovation in renewable technologies – it will be a model of excellence and cross-cultural collaboration in leading design methodologies."

"The vision of this signature development is a result of a strong collaboration between the US and China as well as a global understanding of leading international financial centers including those in London, Frankfurt, Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai" said Alan Tay, CIDIC North America CEO who has been working diligently with Mr. Swagger and local partners and authorities to finalize the remaining items necessary for the ceremonial ground breaking, tentatively scheduled for December.

For the Best in Plastic Surgery Trust Results over Rhetoric Oct 31, 2014 06:49PM

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In recent years, attitudes have shifted on the topic of plastic surgery. This is due in no small part to published studies, such as 2013 study by the National Institute of Health, that show a positive correlation between plastic surgery outcomes and a sense of increased happiness on the part of patients. While this increased acceptance of plastic surgery has led to an increased number of procedures and more practicing plastic surgeons, it's important for potential patients to remember that quality and expertise are key factors for determining treatment options. At Beverly Hills Physicians, a highly trained team of leading surgeons and medical professionals proudly stand by consistently positive results that speak for themselves.

For many seeking treatment, pursing plastic surgery procedures can be a daunting and intimidating experience; particularly with so many options to choose from. While some providers might emphasize savings and convenience, plastic surgery is an important commitment that should be handled with by doctors who have demonstrated the highest level of expertise, and who offer high quality patient care that extends through a patient's entire recovery. Though BHP is one of the most respected and sought after centers for a wide range of procedures, their team of dedicated physicians let the results speak for themselves.

Patient testimonials are another important aspect of what makes the BHP commitment to quality so easy to observe. The extensive video and written testimonials on the BHP site from recipients of their top-rate service further help prospective patients understand what to expect, as well as the many pluses that gives BHP the edge over their competitors. In addition, with free seminars and free consultations, the medical group is able to put its collective expertise and knowledge on full display for any patients seeking to further explore their treatment options. Moreover, BHP prides itself on making cosmetic treatments available to men and women from all walks of life by offering, when needed, payment plans that can make most procedures affordable even on a relatively limited budget.

BHP extends this same commitment to quality throughout the entire large range of procedures offered by the medical group, from podiatry to weight loss operations to vaginal rejuvenation. No matter what a patient's need may be, the surgeons and specialists at BHP provide the results they're looking for with unrivaled skill and precision. Any surgery warrants the best treatment from the most experienced team available, and cosmetic surgery is no exception.
