Company expects continued demand amid uncertain macroeconomic environment

SAN FRANCISCOApril 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Prologis, Inc. (NYSE: PLD), the global leader in logistics real estate, today reported first quarter results for 2023.

Net earnings per diluted share was $0.50 for the first quarter of 2023 compared with $1.54 for the first quarter of 2022. In 2022, we had significant gains on dispositions while we had minimal in the first quarter of 2023.

Core funds from operations (Core FFO)* per diluted share was $1.22 for the first quarter of 2023, compared with $1.09 for the same period in 2022.

“We continue to deliver record results driven by the unparalleled quality of our portfolio and customer solutions,” said Hamid R. Moghadam, co-founder and CEO, Prologis. “Demand remains healthy, despite some moderating in terms of decision-making. Given the macroenvironment, we continue to operate our business with a degree of caution. We foresee any potential impact on demand as likely to overlap with a deceleration in new deliveries, sustaining momentum with favorable conditions for high occupancy and continued rent growth into 2024.”



“Our liquidity position of $6.7 billion, inclusive of $1.0 billion of additional line of credit capacity closed in April, is at an all-time high, providing further flexibility to capitalize as opportunities arise,” said Timothy D. Arndt, chief financial officer, Prologis. “We are well-positioned to deliver superior growth given our embedded rent upside and proven ability to create value from the build-out of our land bank.”
