CINCINNATI--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Phillips Edison – ARC Shopping Center REIT Inc. (the
“Company”), a publicly registered, non-traded REIT focused on acquiring grocery-anchored neighborhood and
community shopping centers, today announced it has acquired two shopping centers with a combined 150,243
square feet of space located in Georgia and South Carolina. The Company acquired Southampton Village, a 77,956
square foot Publix-anchored shopping center located in Tyrone, Georgia and Centerpoint, a 72,287 Publix-
anchored square foot center located in Easley, South Carolina. Both Southampton Village and Centerpoint were
constructed in 2003, and the Publix supermarkets at both locations are on long-term leases through 2023. The total
purchase price for the two centers was approximately $15.2 million.

Both shopping centers benefit from their close proximity to growing United States metro areas. Southampton Village
is located in suburban Atlanta, Georgia, which is the ninth-largest metro area in the United States and serves as the
population, employment and transportation center of the Southeast. Centerpoint is located just 13 miles east of
Greenville, South Carolina and, as part of the Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson metropolitan statistical area,
benefits from a population of approximately 1.4 million residents.

“The acquisition of these two high-quality Publix-anchored centers exemplifies our strategy to grow the portfolio with
properties tenanted by leading grocers in markets with solid demographics,” said John Bessey, president of Phillips
Edison – ARC Shopping Center REIT, Inc. “We believe that acquiring well-located grocery-anchored centers at
attractive prices will be accretive to shareholder value.”
