SAN FRANCISCO and WAYNE, Pa., Jan. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Prologis, Inc. (NYSE: PLD; "Prologis") and Liberty Property Trust (NYSE: LPT; "Liberty") today announced early results from the offers to exchange outstanding notes (the "Liberty Notes") of the two series described in the table below issued by Liberty Property Limited Partnership ("Liberty OP") for corresponding notes of two series to be issued by Prologis, L.P. ("Prologis OP," and such notes the "Prologis Notes") in the aggregate principal amount of $750 million. As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 23, 2020 (the "Early Expiration Date") and as indicated in the table below, $373,514,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2026 Notes and $311,010,000 aggregate principal amount of the 2029 Notes had been validly tendered for exchange (and not validly withdrawn), such that the requisite consents applicable to each series of Liberty Notes to adopt the Proposed Amendments (as defined below) have been received (such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 modify the terms of the Liberty Notes (the "Proposed Amendments"), the Proposed Amendments to the indenture (such indenture, as amended and supplemented, the "Liberty Indenture") governing the Liberty Notes will be adopted, assuming the merger with Liberty 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 are being made under 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 January 3, 2020, as amended by Amendment No. 1 thereto filed by Prologis OP with the SEC on January 17, 2020, that was declared effective on January 21, 2020 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.
Series of Notes
3.250% Senior Notes due October 1, 2026
(the "2026 Notes")
4.375% Senior Notes due February 1, 2029
(the "2029 Notes")
Each series of Prologis Notes will bear interest from the most recent interest payment date on which interest has been paid on the corresponding series of Liberty Notes.
A holder who validly tenders its Liberty Notes for exchange will be deemed to have delivered its consent to the Proposed Amendments. Tenders of Liberty Notes may be withdrawn any time prior to 11:59 p.m., New York City Time, February 6, 2020 unless extended by Prologis OP (the "Final Expiration Date"). Consents to the Proposed Amendments delivered prior to the Early Expiration Date may not be revoked after the Early Expiration Date. 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 Liberty 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 Liberty Notes for exchange, or whose notes are not accepted for exchange, will remain a holder of such Liberty Notes. As the Proposed Amendments to the Liberty Indenture will be adopted, assuming the merger with Liberty is completed, all Liberty Notes not tendered for exchange will be governed by the Liberty Indenture as amended by the Proposed Amendments. The Liberty Indenture as amended by the Proposed Amendments will have less restrictive terms, affording reduced protections to the holders of the Liberty Notes compared to those currently in the Liberty Indenture.
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 Liberty. The merger with Liberty is expected to be completed in early February 2020 and Prologis OP expects to waive any other condition that has not been satisfied at or prior to the Final Expiration Date.
