YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT

PLEASE VOTE YOUR PROXY TODAY

August 2, 2018

Dear Stockholder:

We are reaching out regarding the proxy materials we recently sent you in connection with the special meeting of stockholders of DCT Industrial Trust Inc. (“DCT” or the “Company”) scheduled for August 20, 2018. Your vote is extremely important no matter how many shares you hold.

As previously announced, Prologis, Inc. (“Prologis”) and DCT have agreed to combine through a merger of DCT with and into Prologis (and DCT’s Operating Partnership will merge with and into Prologis’ Operating Partnership), with Prologis surviving the merger. If the merger is completed pursuant to the merger agreement, each share of DCT common stock outstanding will convert into 1.02 shares of Prologis common stock.

The transaction must be approved by DCT stockholders. At the DCT special meeting, DCT stockholders will be asked to vote on (i) a proposal to approve the merger on the terms and conditions set forth in the merger agreement, (ii) a non-binding advisory proposal to approve certain compensation that may be paid or become payable to the named executive officers of DCT in connection with the merger and the transactions contemplated under the merger agreement, and (iii) a proposal to approve one or more adjournments of the DCT meeting to solicit additional proxies in favor of the merger.

The DCT board of directors unanimously recommends that DCT stockholders vote FOR the each of the above proposals.

Please read the proxy statement/prospectus, dated July 10, 2018 (and any amendments or supplements thereto) carefully and in its entirety before casting your vote at the meeting.

Time is short and your vote is very important. Please vote by internet or by telephone to ensure your vote is promptly counted prior to the meeting (see instructions below). The merger cannot be completed unless holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of common stock vote “FOR” the merger proposal. If you fail to vote to approve the merger, the effect will be the same as a vote against the approval of the merger.

If you need assistance voting your shares, please call D.F. King & Co., Inc. toll free at (800) 884-5101.

On behalf of the DCT Board of Directors, thank you for your cooperation and continued support.


Sincerely,
