ProLogis Intends to Increase Ownership Stake in ProLogis European Properties

http://ih.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&article=41544652&symbol=PLD

DENVER, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

ProLogis (NYSE:PLD), a leading global provider of distribution facilities, announced today that it intends to purchase additional Ordinary Units carrying voting rights of ProLogis European Properties, a Luxembourg closed-ended investment fund (Euronext: PEPR), in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. ProLogis currently holds approximately 24.8 percent of PEPR's outstanding Ordinary Units.

"In our view, PEPR's Unit price does not fully reflect the significant progress made over the past 14 months to manage through the downturn," said Walter C. Rakowich, ProLogis chief executive officer. "During this time, we have worked diligently to strengthen PEPR's financial condition, maintain PEPR's strong occupancy and optimize the earnings power of its high quality assets. We will continue to manage PEPR in a way that maximizes value, and we intend to increase our ownership, as we believe PEPR Units represent an attractive investment opportunity for ProLogis."

At this time, ProLogis does not intend to increase its equity ownership of PEPR beyond 33.33 percent of Ordinary Units carrying voting rights, a level which would trigger a mandatory tender offer for the remaining PEPR Units under Luxembourg law.

ProLogis Reports Fourth Quarter/Year-end 2009 Results

- Full-year FFO per Share in Line with Previous Guidance - - Property Market Fundamentals Showing Signs of Improvement - - Company Establishes 2010 Guidance -

DENVER, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

ProLogis (NYSE:PLD), a leading global provider of distribution facilities, today reported funds from operations as defined by ProLogis (FFO), excluding significant non-cash items, of $1.15 per diluted share in 2009, compared with $3.51 for 2008. (See Summary of Results table for details). These amounts reflect the add back of impairments on real estate properties, goodwill and other assets totaling $0.81 per diluted share in 2009 and $3.01 in 2008. ProLogis reported a net loss per diluted share of $0.01 for 2009, compared with a net loss of $1.82 for 2008.

For the fourth quarter, FFO, excluding significant non-cash items, was $0.13 per diluted share in 2009, compared with $0.56 in 2008. These amounts reflect the add back of impairments on real estate properties, goodwill and other assets totaling $0.78 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2009 and $3.04 in 2008. For the fourth quarter of 2009, the company reported a net loss per diluted share of $0.86, compared with a net loss of $3.39 in the same period of 2008.

Reconciliation to Previous Guidance

In addition to the non-cash impairment charges referred to above, the company experienced various non-recurring charges in the fourth quarter and earlier in 2009, as detailed below. FFO, excluding significant non-cash items and non-recurring charges, was $1.41 per diluted share for the full year, in line with the company's previous guidance of $1.39 to $1.43. For the fourth quarter, FFO, excluding significant non-cash items and non-recurring charges, was $0.23 per diluted share.

Three Months Twelve Months Ended Ended December 31, December 31, 2009 2009 ---- ----

FFO, excluding significant non-cash items $0.13 $1.15 Add (deduct) non-recurring charges: Indemnifications related to contributed or sold properties 0.08 0.09 Realized losses on foreign currency transactions - 0.05 Capital markets costs 0.03 0.04 ProLogis' share of losses on sale of fund assets - 0.03 Reduction in workforce - 0.03 Other 0.01 0.04 Adjustments to tax and compensation-related liabilities (0.02) (0.02) ---- ---- Add summarized non-recurring charges 0.10 0.26 ---- ---- FFO, excluding significant non-cash items and non-recurring charges $0.23 $1.41

Significant Accomplishments in 2009 Position Company for Future Opportunities

"We began 2009 with an action plan and aggressive goals related to asset dispositions, debt reduction and development portfolio leasing," said Walter C. Rakowich, chief executive officer. "Throughout the year, we made tough choices and remained highly focused on stabilizing the company. We are pleased to have accomplished our goals, putting the company on firm financial footing and positioning us to take advantage of opportunities as market conditions improve."

Among ProLogis' specific goals for 2009 were to: reduce debt by $2 billion, complete $1.5 to $1.7 billion of asset dispositions and contributions to property funds (exclusive of the sale of certain Asian operations) and achieve static development portfolio leasing of 60 to 70 percent. At year end 2009, the company had reduced debt by $2.7 billion, completed $1.53 billion of property dispositions and contributions and achieved static development portfolio leasing of 68.2 percent.

Continued Signs of Stabilization and Improvement in Property Markets

"While focusing on our action plan, we also worked diligently to maintain stable occupancies in our core portfolio," Rakowich added. "The bottoming of market occupancies and rents that we began to see in mid-2009 held up in the fourth quarter, with some markets showing improvement. For the top 31 North American markets we track, overall net demand turned positive in the fourth quarter, and we saw similar pockets of positive take-up in Europe. And, although we expect net effective rental rates on turnovers to be negative throughout 2010, we believe improving occupancies and the continued lack of new supply will pave the way for improving rental rates in 2011."

ProLogis' non-development portfolio was 92.4 percent leased at the end of the fourth quarter, down slightly compared with 92.7 percent leased at September 30. Same-store net operating income (SS NOI), as adjusted (excluding same-store assets associated with the company's development portfolio), decreased 4.2 percent, a slight improvement over the third quarter SS NOI decline. Net effective rental rates on turnover of 23.6 million square feet, or 6.0 percent of the adjusted same-store pool, were down 11.7 percent for the quarter, representing an improvement over the third quarter decline.

Build-to-Suit Development Demand Supports Reductions in Land Position

"While new speculative development has remained virtually non-existent, during the fourth quarter we continued to see demand for build-to-suit development from customers whose supply chain optimization requirements could not be met with the available supply of space," said Ted R. Antenucci, chief investment officer. ProLogis' fourth quarter starts consisted of a 667,000-square-foot facility for a major home improvement retailer in Southern California and a 504,000-square-foot facility for a leading UK retailer in Scotland. Including joint venture partner capital contributions, total expected investment for all build-to-suit developments started in the second half of 2009 is $336 million.

"Given the continued interest from customers in build-to-suits, we expect to start $700 to $800 million of new development in 2010, primarily in Europe and Asia. We also will continue to pursue land sales, which when combined with new development, will allow us to begin to monetize roughly $350 to $400 million of land in 2010," Antenucci added.

Strategic Repositioning of Asset Base

"In 2009, we used the proceeds from nearly $2.9 billion of contributions and dispositions, including the sale of certain Asian operations, to reduce debt and fund our development portfolio," said Rakowich. "Having stabilized our balance sheet, we are now looking to fund new development activity in a slightly different, leverage-neutral manner. Due to improving property values and growing institutional demand for quality properties, in 2010 we plan to generate $1.3 to $1.5 billion of proceeds from sales of existing assets and contributions to funds, primarily in the United States, and use the proceeds to fund the remaining costs associated with our existing development portfolio as well as 2010 development starts. This approach will allow us to retain more of our non-US development on our balance sheet, thereby improving the geographic diversification of our direct owned assets."

Continued Financing Progress for ProLogis and Property Funds

"We continued to focus on further extending and smoothing the debt maturities both on ProLogis' balance sheet and in our property funds," said William E. Sullivan, chief financial officer. "In the fourth quarter, we issued $600 million of 10-year, ProLogis senior notes and closed on a $108 million secured financing in Japan on our balance sheet. Since the beginning of the fourth quarter, we closed on euro 886 million of financings in our European funds, effectively reducing 2010 maturities within those funds to approximately euro 327 million. This is significant progress from the over euro 1.8 billion of 2010 fund debt maturities we were faced with at the beginning of 2009."

Guidance for 2010

ProLogis established full-year 2010 FFO guidance, excluding significant non-cash items, of $0.74 to $0.78 per share, of which approximately $0.10 relates to expected gains on dispositions of development and land. Net earnings are expected to be between $0.25 and $0.29 per diluted share. A summary of the business drivers supporting ProLogis' 2010 guidance is available at http://ir.prologis.com/2010BusinessDrivers.cfm.

Copies of ProLogis' fourth quarter 2009 supplemental information will be available from the company's website at http://ir.prologis.com/ in the "Annual & Supplemental Reports" section before open of market on Thursday, February 11, 2010.

The live webcast and the replay will be available on the company's website at http://ir.prologis.com/.

ProLogis Closes on Euro 622 Million of Financings for European Property Funds

Stock : Prologis (PLD)

http://ih.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&article=41213801&symbol=PLD

DENVER, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

ProLogis (NYSE:PLD), a leading global provider of distribution facilities, announced today that over the past four weeks it has completed four financings for its European property funds, totaling euro 622 million. The four financings have a weighted average coupon of 4.91 percent

Three, four-year financings, resulting in euro 441 million of funding, were completed for ProLogis European Properties (Euronext: PEPR). They have loan-to-value ratios of between 50 and 55 percent and are secured by assets located in Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Poland and the United Kingdom. The largest component of these financings is a euro 300 million Pan-European, syndicated loan with six European lenders, arranged by Goldman Sachs, which was one of the largest loans of this kind done in the European real estate sector since 2008

ProLogis also completed a euro 181 million financing for ProLogis European Properties Fund II, the largest single-lender mortgage financing completed in Europe since the fall of 2008. This financing is secured by 22 assets in France and has a loan-to-value ratio of 60 percent

"With these financings, we have reduced 2010 maturities within the two funds to under euro 336 million - significant progress from the euro 1.8 billion we were faced with as of December 31, 2008. With the capital transactions in progress and available liquidity within the funds, we are comfortable with our ability to address the remaining maturities in the near future," said William E. Sullivan, ProLogis' chief financial officer. "The European financing market continues to demonstrate its diversity and resilience, as we are able to complete transactions with a wide spectrum of lenders at attractive rates."

Stocks fall as Obama calls for tougher bank rules

Stocks slide anew as Obama calls for tighter restrictions on some trading by banks

Stephen Bernard and Tim Paradis, AP Business Writers,
On Thursday January 21, 2010, 12:08 pm EST
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Stocks-fall-as-Obama-calls-apf-1512287612.html;_ylt=ArFaJECrqfyx6R5QIp67fdG7YWsA_ylu=X3oDMTE1NG43dGc2BHBvcwMzBHNlYwN0b3BTdG9yaWVzBHNsawNzdG9ja3NzZWV3b3I-?x=0&sec=topStories&pos=1&asset=&ccode=

NEW YORK (AP) -- Financial shares pulled the stock market lower Thursday as President Barack Obama proposed rules that would limit the types of trading banks can do with their money.

The Dow Jones industrial average tumbled 200 points after dropping 122 points on Wednesday. The index has seen four straight triple-digit swings. Bond prices rose as the stock market became more volatile.

Tightening the rules on how big banks trade their money could hurt profits at those companies.

Broader concerns also dogged investors. Patrick Galley, chief investment officer at RiverNorth Capital in Chicago, said stocks have risen so fast in the past 10 months that expectations about an economic recovery are getting too high.

"The market can be quite fickle just because of the huge run-up that we've had," he said. "A lot of folks have their trigger finger on the sell button if they start to sense that news won't meet expectations."

The market was mixed earlier as good earnings news was tempered by an unexpected jump in initial jobless claims. But banks, which have driven the market over the past year and a half, were the focus by late morning.

The Labor Department said workers filing for unemployment benefits for the first time rose by 36,000 to 482,000 last week. Economists polled by Thomson Reuters were expecting a small drop. The four-week average rose for the first time since August.

The report provided a grim reminder that while the economy might have improved modestly, a robust recovery is unlikely until companies start adding jobs. The unemployment rate remained at 10 percent last month.

Traders said weakness in manufacturing also brought concern that the economy might not be recovering as quickly as hoped. The Philadelphia Federal Reserve said manufacturing in its region fell in January from December. Its index of regional manufacturing conditions fell to 15.2 from a revised 22.5 last month.

In midday trading, the Dow fell 204.58, or 1.9 percent, to 10,398.57. The broader Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 19.31, or 1.7 percent, to 1,118.73. The Nasdaq composite index fell 27.50, or 1.2 percent, to 2,263.75.

Stocks had tumbled on Wednesday after China said it would curb bank lending to slow down its economy. The latest sign of China's supercharged growth came out on Thursday as the country reported 10.7 percent economic expansion in the fourth quarter and 8.7 percent for all of last year. The rapid growth reinforced concerns that China will take more steps to tighten monetary policy and rein in its economy, which could dampen a global economic rebound.

Bond prices jumped as the stock market fell. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves opposite its price, fell to 3.62 percent from 3.65 percent late Wednesday.

The dollar rose against other major currencies, while gold fell. A rise in the dollar hurt commodity prices, which become more expensive for foreign buyers when the dollar strengthens.

Crude oil fell 90 cents to $76.84 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies fell 10.93, or 1.7 percent, to 628.68.

Four stocks fell for every one that rose on the New York Stock Exchange, where volume came to 586.8 million shares compared with 473.6 million shares traded at the same point Wednesday.

Britain's FTSE 100 fell 1.5 percent, Germany's DAX index lost 1.8 percent, and France's CAC-40 fell 1.7 percent. Earlier, Japan's Nikkei stock average rose 1.2 percent.

ProLogis Announces 4.0 Million Square Feet of Fourth Quarter Global Development Portfolio Leasing Activity

- Global Static Development Portfolio Now 68.2 Percent Leased -

DENVER, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

ProLogis (NYSE:PLD), a leading global provider of distribution facilities, announced today that its static global development portfolio was 68.2 percent leased as of year-end 2009

"Roughly one year ago, we set a goal to achieve a leased percentage of 60 - 70 percent by year-end 2009 for our development portfolio properties in place as of the end of 2008, or what we have called our static portfolio," said Walt Rakowich, chief executive officer. "We are pleased to have reached the upper end of that goal and are encouraged by continued leasing activity and customer demand. At a time when little development is coming online, ProLogis' best-in-class development inventory provides immediate solutions for our customers' distribution space needs."

ProLogis signed 56 leases in its static development portfolio during the fourth quarter, which increased leased space in this portfolio by approximately 4.0 million square feet (372,000 square meters) in locations worldwide

Recent development portfolio leasing transactions included:

-- Asia: A new, 381,000-square-foot (35,400-square-meter) lease agreement in Japan with Hitachi Transport System, Ltd., a leading third-party logistics provider.

ProLogis Closes Japanese Financing

By: Zacks Equity Research
December 23, 2009
http://www.zacks.com/stock/news/28621/ProLogis+Closes+Japanese+Financing

ProLogis (PLD - Snapshot Report), one of the leading global providers of distribution facilities, recently completed a $113 million (10 billion yen) financing to repay its debt. The financing was obtained through a "tokutei mokuteki kaisha" (TMK), a tax-favored, special-purpose vehicle created in Japan for acquiring and holding Japanese assets. Secured by real estate assets, the TMK issues corporate bonds, which can be bought by Japanese and non-Japanese investors.

The financing has a maturity period of three years and is collateralized by ProLogis Parc Osaka II, a multi-tenant facility that is over 95% leased and located in Osaka, Japan. Proceeds from the financing were used to pay down the global lines of credit.

ProLogis owns and manages interests in over 2,500 distribution facilities spanning 475 million square feet (including properties under development) of space. In response to the economic realities of constrained credit and rapidly deteriorating industrial real estate fundamentals, ProLogis has stopped all new development starts and early-stage developments. The company is currently concentrating on increasing its liquidity and de-leveraging its balance sheet.

With the financing agreement, ProLogis has displayed the unique strength of its large and diversified unencumbered asset base. Shares are now attractively valued relative to peer group averages and underlying NAV. We think the company has done an adequate job of addressing debt maturities and will be able to tide over the credit crunch.

- Two Global Customers, Including Cat Logistics, Expand Presence With ProLogis -

TOKYO, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ProLogis (NYSE:PLD), a leading global provider of distribution facilities, announced today it has leased 188,000 square feet (17,500 square meters) during the third quarter to two customers in Japan.

Caterpillar Logistics Services, Inc. (Cat Logistics), the logistics arm of Caterpillar, the world's largest maker of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines and industrial gas turbines, will occupy 95,000 square feet (8,800 square meters) at ProLogis Parc Narita III, near Tokyo. This is Caterpillar's first lease with ProLogis in Japan; the customer now leases with ProLogis in multiple locations across the United States, Europe and Asia.

In addition, a global supplier of office products and services has leased 93,000 square feet (8,600 square meters) of distribution space at ProLogis Parc Ichikawa I, a distribution facility in Ichikawa City, near Tokyo. This is the sixth lease agreement between ProLogis and the customer, which now occupies approximately 1.2 million square feet (107,000 square meters) of ProLogis distribution space in the United States, Mexico and Japan.

"ProLogis continues to demonstrate the ability to serve its customers on multiple continents because of its geographically diverse portfolio," said Mike Yamada, ProLogis president of Japan. "We are very pleased to welcome both companies to our portfolio in Japan."

ProLogis Parc Narita III is located in the town of Shibayama, Chiba Prefecture. Comprising 570,000 square feet (53,000 square meters), the newly developed distribution facility is approximately 40 miles (64 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo and is adjacent to the Narita International Airport. Sustainable features at the facility include a solar-powered outdoor lighting system and a state-of-the-art, pre-cast concrete seismic isolation system.

Completed in November 2008, ProLogis Parc Ichikawa I is a five-story, 1.3-million-square-foot (125,200-square-meter) distribution facility. Strategically located along Wangan expressway and Route 357, a highway connection to major roadways throughout the region, ProLogis Parc Ichikawa I supports distribution to the greater Tokyo and Chiba regions. Sustainable features include a pre-cast concrete seismic isolation system, a rainwater recycling system and solar-powered outdoor lighting.

Yamada added, "Distribution locations in and around Tokyo have continued to attract steady interest from our customers. While the challenging economic environment still plays a large role in business decisions, many companies continue to look for ways to consolidate distribution networks from inefficient, older facilities into newer, state-of-the-art distribution centers to increase efficiencies. Locating near Tokyo enables customers to easily reach a population of more than 12 million people and provides convenient highway access to all areas of the country."

ProLogis Closes on $123 Million of Portfolio Refinancings for Two ProLogis Property Funds

Date : 10/13/2009 @ 5:00PM
Source : PR Newswire

http://ih.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1255524692&article=39877862&symbol=NY^PLD

DENVER, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ProLogis (NYSE:PLD), a leading global provider of distribution facilities, announced today that it has closed on $123 million of secured financings for two of its property funds.

The first is a seven-year, $52.5 million secured financing with a major life insurance company on behalf of ProLogis California Fund. The financing has a 6.60 percent interest rate, a loan-to-value of approximately 50 percent and is secured by 11 industrial properties located in the LA Basin. The proceeds were used to refinance outstanding debt, and with this refinancing, the fund has addressed debt maturities into 2014.

The second, as announced earlier by ProLogis European Properties Fund (Euronext: PEPR), is a euro 48 million ($70.5 million), five-year, secured financing with a German Landesbank that is secured by four properties in Sweden. The proceeds from this financing were used to refinance outstanding debt.

ProLogis Research Group Releases New Report on Industrial Property Markets in Europe

Date : 10/13/2009 @ 3:00AM
Source : PR Newswire

http://ih.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1255456115&article=39861382&symbol=NY^PLD

AMSTERDAM, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ProLogis (NYSE:PLD), a leading global provider of distribution facilities, announced today the release of a new research report on the state of the industrial property markets in Europe, entitled "Looking for the Rainbow."

The report is based on market statistics and data compiled from a variety of sources, including ProLogis market officers, brokerage companies and market research groups. The information covers distribution property markets in the United Kingdom as well as northern, southern and central Europe up to and including the first half of 2009.

"Europe's logistics property markets are feeling the weight of both a severe economic downturn and a lingering credit crunch," commented Len Sahling, first vice president of the ProLogis Research Group. "The European economies are starting to emerge from several quarters of negative GDP growth, and the logistics property leasing markets will follow suit, albeit with a lag. Meaningful GDP growth combined with obsolescence and no new supply will eventually pull Europe's logistics property leasing markets out of their slump."

Detailed findings in the report include the following:

-- During the first half of 2009, leasing market fundamentals continued to weaken throughout Europe, with the pan-European market occupancy rate slipping to 86 percent in the second quarter of 2009 from 87 percent in the previous quarter and 89 percent a year ago.

-- New deliveries to the Continental European markets have remained relatively stable throughout the current steep recession, largely because of the sizable overhang of construction projects begun last year before the credit crisis erupted.

-- All across Europe, new starts have tapered off in recent months and are now limited almost exclusively to build-to-suit projects. As a result, the construction pipelines have begun to shrink, suggesting that deliveries will soon begin to taper off.

-- Investors have developed a renewed appreciation for market risk and are now making sharper distinctions between countries in Europe regarding economic, currency and property market risks. There is a renewed market focus on prime properties in Europe, where the leases have strong covenants and lease terms of five years.

ProLogis Research Group Releases New Report on South Korea's Industrial Property Markets

http://ih.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1254742655&article=39752616&symbol=NY^PLD

DENVER, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ProLogis (NYSE:PLD), a leading global provider of distribution facilities, today released a new research report entitled, "South Korea's Logistics Property Markets: Playing Catch-Up."

The report examines South Korea's under-developed industrial property markets against the backdrop of its postwar economic success. The report analyzes how this sector has been affected by the historical, political and geographical landscape of the country. It goes further to discuss how, over the past few decades, South Korea has made tremendous strides economically and how only recently the country has begun to focus on building modern distribution and supply chain networks.

"It is estimated that 95 percent of the existing inventory of warehouse and distribution space in South Korea is outdated and obsolete," commented Len Sahling, first vice president of the Prologis Research Group. "In response to intensifying global pressures, South Korean companies have begun to realize that they will need to create world-class logistics and supply chain networks to remain competitive in the world economy. Because South Korea's economy has remained vibrant through the worldwide recession and its real GDP is expected to resume growing at a rapid pace when the recession finally ends, the country's logistics property markets appear to possess abundant upside potential."

ProLogis Forms Global Renewable Energy Group

http://ir.prologis.com/releaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=412092

- Group Gives ProLogis' Renewable Energy Program Executive Leadership, Local Presence and Dedicated Global Resources -
- ProLogis Announces New Solar Project For 4.8 Megawatts in Spain -

DENVER, Sept 29, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- ProLogis (NYSE: PLD), a leading global provider of distribution facilities, announced today it has formed a Global Renewable Energy Group to procure new business, manage installations and provide development management services for renewable energy projects globally.

(Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20090929/LA82949)

"Even through the challenges of the global recession we are finding more ways to create additional value from existing assets," said Walt Rakowich, chief executive officer at ProLogis. "We are excited to announce the formation of this group, which will enable us to expand upon the proven success in wind and solar projects we already have demonstrated in five countries across Europe, Asia and North America."

In addition, ProLogis today announced a new, 4.8-megawatt (MW) solar project to be installed on eight of its rooftops at ProLogis Park Sant Boi in Barcelona and ProLogis Park Alcala in Madrid, Spain. ProLogis completed its first solar installation in France in 2005, and now has solar installations on 20 buildings covering 7.2 million square feet (669,000 square meters) of roof space.

"Upon completion of the new project in Spain, we will have more than 11 MW of solar installations on our rooftops, which is enough energy to power more than 1,100 homes per year," said Jack Rizzo, chief sustainability officer for ProLogis. "We are excited about the results of our renewable energy program so far, and expect to grow our portfolio significantly through the ongoing efforts of our Global Renewable Energy Group."

ProLogis has signed a lease agreement with Recurrent Energy, a distributed power company and a leading provider of solar energy, for two million square feet (180,000 square meters) of roof space in Spain. Recurrent Energy, the owner and operator of the system, will use the roof space to host the 4.8-MW solar installation, and will sell the energy produced to the local utility company through a feed-in tariff. ProLogis will provide construction management services in addition to receiving roof rental fees. Construction is expected to commence in October 2009.

"We have more than 450 million square feet (42 million square meters) of roof space worldwide, all of which is large, flat, unobstructed and ready to be permitted," said Drew Torbin, director of global renewable energy for ProLogis. "Even with this new installation, we are only utilizing less than two percent of this available roof space, leaving a lot of room for us to grow this new business."

Torbin added, "Our industrial rooftops create a unique host-site opportunity for utilities as well as private groups like Recurrent that invest in clean energy. With this space, we are able to solve one of the most basic issues involved in developing large-scale solar projects - the question of appropriate host sites - while also providing the construction management experience to get solar installations on the fast-track to completion."

The installation will be ProLogis' third solar project in Spain; the company also has installations in Tarragona and Zaragoza. Worldwide, ProLogis has projects located in the United States, Japan, France, Germany and Spain.
