Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

The information set forth under Item 2.03 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On June 18, 2014, ARC Realty Finance Trust, Inc. (the "Company"), through its indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, ARC RFT JPM Loan, LLC (the "Seller"), entered into an Uncommitted Master Repurchase Agreement (the "JPM Repo Facility") with JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association. The JPM Repo Facility provides up to $150.0 million in advances, subject to adjustment, which the Company expects to use to finance the acquisition or origination of eligible loans, including first mortgage loans, junior mortgage loans, mezzanine loans, and participation interests therein.

Advances under the JPM Repo Facility accrue interest at per annum rates equal to the sum of (i) the applicable LIBOR index rate plus (ii) a margin of between 2.25% to 4.50%, depending on the attributes of the purchased assets. The initial maturity date of the JPM Repo Facility is June 18, 2016, with a one-year extension at the Company's option, which may be exercised upon the satisfaction of certain conditions. The JPM Repo Facility acts in the manner of a revolving credit facility that can be repaid as the Company's assets are paid off and re-drawn as advances against new assets.

In connection with the JPM Repo Facility, the Company entered into a Guarantee Agreement (the "Guaranty") under which the Company agreed to guarantee certain obligations of the Seller under the JPM Repo Facility.

The JPM Repo Facility and the Guaranty contain representations, warranties, covenants, conditions precedent to funding, events of default and indemnities that are customary for agreements of this type, and the JPM Repo Facility contains financial and other covenants applicable to the Seller. In addition, the Guaranty contains financial covenants that require the Company to satisfy certain minimum net worth requirements.

The Company will file the JPM Repo Facility and the Guaranty with the Securities and Exchange Commission as exhibits to its next Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
