  (1) Per $1,000 principal amount of Notes accepted for purchase.

In order to receive the Total Consideration set forth in the table above, holders must tender and not validly withdraw their Notes at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Tuesday, December 1, 2009, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Early Tender Date"). The Total Consideration includes the early tender payment of $30 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes (the "Early Tender Payment"). Holders validly tendering their Notes after the Early Tender Date and prior to the Expiration Time will only be eligible to receive the Tender Offer Consideration set forth in the table above, which is equal to the Total Consideration minus the Early Tender Payment.

The amount of each series of Notes that will be purchased in the offer will be based on the Maximum Tender Cap and the order of priority for such series of Notes set forth in the table above (the "Acceptance Priority Level"), as more fully described in the Offer to Purchase.

AMB Property, L.P. will pay the applicable Total Consideration or Tender Offer Consideration, as the case may be, plus accrued and unpaid interest in respect of any Notes accepted for purchase in the tender offer up to, but not including, the date of payment for the Notes, which is expected to be the next business day following the Expiration Date.

As described in the Offer to Purchase, Notes tendered prior to the Early Tender Date may be withdrawn at any time prior to the Early Tender Date, but (subject to limited exceptions) not thereafter, and Notes tendered after the Early Tender Date may not be withdrawn. Withdrawn Notes may be re-tendered at any time prior to the Expiration Date. The tender offer is subject to certain customary conditions, but is not conditioned on the tender of a minimum principal amount of Notes. AMB Property, L.P. may amend, extend or, subject to certain conditions, terminate the tender offer at any time.
