Jan 28, 2016, 21:18 ET from Prologis, Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Prologis, Inc. (NYSE: PLD), the global leader in industrial real estate, today announced the tax treatment of its 2015 distributions. Exhibits A and B reflect the tax treatment of distributions on Prologis, Inc. common and preferred stock, respectively. 

Persons who held shares of common or preferred stock of Prologis, Inc. in their name at any time during 2015 will receive an IRS Form 1099-DIV via Computershare, Prologis' transfer agent. Persons who held shares in "street name" during 2015 should note that the IRS form provided by a bank, brokerage firm or nominee may report only gross distributions. Therefore, the information herein may be needed to properly complete a federal tax return.

This information has been prepared using the best available information to date. Prologis, Inc.'s federal income tax return for the year ended December 31, 2015, has not yet been filed. Please note that federal tax laws affect taxpayers differently, and we cannot advise on how distributions should be reported. Please also note that state and local taxation of REIT distributions may differ from federal rules. Prologis, Inc. recommends a consultation with a tax advisor regarding the federal, state and local income tax consequences of these distributions.

ABOUT PROLOGIS
As of December 31, 2015, Prologis owned or had investments in, on a wholly owned basis or through co-investment ventures, properties and development projects expected to total approximately 669 million square feet (62 million square meters) in 20 countries. The company leases modern distribution facilities to more than 5,200 customers, including third-party logistics providers, transportation companies, retailers and manufacturers.
