Prologis Announces Tax Treatment of 2011 Distributions

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Prologis, Inc. (NYSE: PLD), the leading global owner, operator and developer of industrial real estate, today announced the tax treatment of its 2011 distributions.  The tables attached as exhibits reflect the tax treatment of distributions made prior to the merger on ProLogis common shares and preferred shares and for the full year on AMB Property Corporation common stock and preferred stock.  Exhibit A presents information relative to ProLogis common shares and AMB common stock, including common stock of the combined company.  Exhibit B presents information relative to ProLogis preferred shares and AMB preferred stock, including preferred stock of the combined company. Please refer to the attached exhibits for CUSIP changes related to common and preferred shares.

On June 3, 2011, AMB Property Corporation and ProLogis completed their merger and became Prologis, Inc. Under the structure of the merger, AMB Property Corporation was the legal acquirer and ProLogis was the accounting acquirer.  AMB Property Corporation was renamed Prologis, Inc. effective as of the date of merger. Under the terms of the merger agreement, each ProLogis common share outstanding immediately prior to the closing was converted into the right to receive 0.4464 of a newly issued share of the combined company's common stock.  Each legacy AMB share, held by a former AMB stockholder, remained outstanding as a share of the combined company's common stock.  Each preferred share of ProLogis was exchanged for one newly issued  share of preferred stock of the combined company and each share of AMB preferred stock remained outstanding as a share of preferred stock of the combined company.    

If you held shares of common or preferred stock of AMB Property Corporation or Prologis, Inc. or common or preferred shares of ProLogis in your name at any time during 2011, an IRS Form 1099-DIV will be provided to you by Computershare, Prologis, Inc.'s transfer agent, on or about January 31, 2012.  If you held shares in "street name" during 2011, the IRS form provided by your bank, brokerage firm or nominee may report only the gross distributions paid to you.  Therefore, you may need the information set forth in the attached to properly complete your federal tax return.

The attached information has been prepared using the best available information to date. Prologis, Inc.'s federal income tax return for the year ended December 31, 2011 has not yet been filed.  Please note that federal tax laws affect taxpayers differently, and we cannot advise you on how distributions should be reported on your federal income tax return.  Please also note that state and local taxation of REIT distributions vary and may not be the same as the federal rules.  Prologis, Inc. thus urges you to consult with your own tax advisor with respect to the federal, state and local income tax consequences of these distributions.
