Prologis Announces Nippon Prologis REIT's Issuance Of New Investment Units

SAN FRANCISCO, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Prologis, Inc. (NYSE: PLD), the leading global owner, operator and developer of industrial real estate, today announced Nippon Prologis REIT, Inc. (NPR), a Japanese real estate investment trust, will issue new investment units. Prologis will retain at least a 15 percent ownership interest in NPR.

NPR intends to use the proceeds from the issuance to acquire eight Class-A properties for JPY 132.4 billion ( $1.3 billion). The portfolio comprises six properties from Prologis Japan Fund 1, pursuant to the fund's unanimous vote to sell to NPR. The two additional properties will be acquired from Prologis' wholly owned Japan portfolio.  The assets, totaling 6.7 million square feet (624,800 square meters), were made available to NPR through its sponsor support agreement with Prologis.  The acquisition is contingent upon the successful issuance of units and is expected to close on June 13 in Japan.

"This acquisition demonstrates a significant benefit of the sponsor support agreement between Prologis and NPR, as the J-REIT had preferential information and negotiation rights to these high-quality assets," said Hamid R. Moghadam, chairman and CEO, Prologis. "This transaction aligns with the strategy to grow and further enhance the NPR portfolio and to increase unit holder value."

NPR is managed by a wholly owned subsidiary of Prologis.

This announcement is not an offer of securities for sale in the United States or any other jurisdiction. Securities may not be offered or sold in the United States unless they are registered or exempt from registration.

The statements in this release that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about the industry and markets in which Prologis operates, management's beliefs and assumptions made by management.

Words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, which generally are not historical in nature. All statements that address operating performance, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will occur in the future — including statements relating to rent and occupancy growth, development activity and changes in sales or contribution volume of developed properties, disposition activity, general conditions in the geographic areas where we operate, synergies to be realized from our recent merger transaction, our debt and financial position, our ability to form new property funds and the availability of capital in existing or new property funds — are forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Although we believe the expectations reflected in any forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, we can give no assurance that our expectations will be attained and therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements.
