SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Prologis, Inc. (NYSE: PLD) today announced early results from the offers to exchange outstanding notes (the "Duke Realty Notes") of the nine series described in the table below issued by Duke Realty Limited Partnership ("Duke Realty OP") for notes in nine corresponding series to be issued by Prologis, L.P. ("Prologis OP," and such notes the "Prologis Notes") in the aggregate principal amount of up to $3.375 billion. As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on September 14, 2022 (the "Early Expiration Date") and as indicated in the table below, approximately $3.22 billion aggregate principal amount of the Duke Realty Notes had been validly tendered for exchange (and not validly withdrawn), and the requisite consents applicable to each series of Duke Realty Notes to adopt the Proposed Amendments (as defined below) have been received (such consents may not be revoked after the Early Expiration Date by the terms and conditions of the exchange offers and consent solicitations as described in the corresponding prospectus). In light of having received the requisite consents to amend the terms of the applicable Duke Realty OP indenture (such indentures, as amended and supplemented, the "Duke Realty Indentures") governing the Duke Realty Notes (the "Proposed Amendments"), the Proposed Amendments will be adopted, assuming the merger with Duke Realty Corporation ("DRE") is completed. The following table shows the principal amount of each such series tendered by the Early Expiration Date.

The exchange offers and the solicitation of consents will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 4, 2022 (the "Final Expiration Date"). Prologis OP is hereby amending the terms of the Exchange Offer so that, for each $1,000 principal amount of Duke Realty Notes validly tendered for exchange (and not validly withdrawn) after the Early Expiration Date but prior to the Final Expiration Date, eligible holders of Duke Realty Notes will now also be eligible to receive $1,000 principal amount of Prologis OP Notes plus $1 in cash, which includes the Early Participation Premium (the "Total Consideration"). To be eligible to receive the Total Consideration, eligible holders must validly tender (and not validly withdraw) their Duke Realty Notes at or prior to the Final Expiration Date. For the avoidance of doubt, in no event will any holder of the Duke Realty Notes receive more than $1,000 principal amount of Prologis OP Notes plus $1 in cash for each $1,000 principal amount of Duke Realty Notes validly tendered and accepted for exchange. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this press release shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Prospectus.
The exchange offers and the solicitation of consents are being made under the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the prospectus contained in the registration statement on Form S-4 filed by Prologis OP with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on August 31, 2022, that was declared effective on September 14, 2022 (as amended from time to time, the "Prospectus"), and a related letter of transmittal and consent that contains a more complete description of the terms and conditions of the exchange offers and the solicitation of consents.
A holder who validly tenders its Duke Realty Notes for exchange will be deemed to have delivered its consent to the applicable Proposed Amendments. Tenders of Duke Realty Notes may be withdrawn any time prior to the Final Expiration Date. Consents to the Proposed Amendments delivered prior to the Early Expiration Date may no longer be revoked as the Early Expiration Date has passed. Consents to the Proposed Amendments delivered after the Early Expiration Date and before the Final Expiration Date may be revoked any time prior to the Final Expiration Date. Tenders of Duke Realty Notes may not be validly withdrawn after the Final Expiration Date, unless Prologis OP otherwise is required by law to permit withdrawal.
A holder who does not validly tender its Duke Realty Notes for exchange, or whose notes are not accepted for exchange, will remain a holder of such Duke Realty Notes. If the Proposed Amendments to the applicable Duke Realty Indenture are adopted, all such Duke Realty Notes will be governed by the applicable Duke Realty Indenture as amended by the Proposed Amendments, which will have less restrictive terms and afford reduced protections to the holders of such securities compared to those currently in the Duke Realty Indentures.
Prologis OP's obligations to complete the exchange offers and the solicitation of consents are conditioned upon, among other things, completion of the merger with DRE and receipt of valid consents sufficient to effect the Proposed Amendments. The merger with DRE is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2022.
