"We generated significant proceeds in April and May," said Thomas S. Olinger, chief financial officer of Prologis. "Disposition activity is strong thanks to recent sales to a diverse group of buyers and across a number of geographies.  We've also completed our ownership rebalancing activities for the quarter in our USLF and PTELF joint ventures, which generated $411 million. Overall, the proceeds generated from these various activities – which comprise a key portion of our ability to self-fund future capital deployment – put us more than halfway toward reaching the midpoint of our capital proceeds guidance for the year. Furthermore, we have several properties representing $220 million in value under binding agreements."
