Holders of Any and All Notes that validly tendered and did not validly withdraw their Any and All Notes prior to the expiration of the Any and All Tender Offer will receive the Total Consideration set forth in the table above, plus accrued and unpaid interest from the applicable last interest payment date to, but not including, the any and all settlement date, which is expected to occur November 17, 2010. A complete description of the Any and All Tender Offer was set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated November 5, 2010 (the "Offer to Purchase" ) and the related Letter of Transmittal (together, the "Offer").
ProLogis is conducting a tender offer for other series of its senior notes (the "Maximum Tender Offer" and together with the Any and All Tender Offer, the "Tender Offers"). Pursuant to the Offer, the maximum amount that will be paid in the Maximum Tender Offer is $1.4 billion less the amount (including accrued and unpaid interest from the applicable last interest payment date to, but not including, the any and all settlement date) paid to purchase the Any and All Notes validly tendered and accepted for payment in the Any and All Tender Offer (the "Maximum Tender Amount"). The aggregate amount to be paid in the Any and All Tender Offer, plus such accrued and unpaid interest, is expected to be approximately $899.4 million. As a result, the Maximum Tender Amount is expected to be approximately $500.6 million. More information about the Maximum Tender Offer is contained in the Offer to Purchase.
The Maximum Tender Offer is scheduled to expire at 11:59 pm, NYC time, on December 6, 2010 (the "Maximum Tender Expiration Time"), unless extended or earlier terminated by ProLogis, in its sole discretion. Holders of notes subject to the Maximum Tender Offer must validly tender and not validly withdraw their notes at or prior to 5:00 pm, NYC time, on November 19, 2010 (the "Early Tender Time"), unless extended or earlier terminated by ProLogis in its sole discretion, to be eligible to receive the applicable Total Consideration, which includes an early tender payment, described in the Offer to Purchase. Holders of notes subject to the Maximum Tender Offer who tender their notes after the Early Tender Time and at or prior to the Maximum Tender Expiration Time, will be eligible to receive the applicable tender offer consideration, which is the Total Consideration minus the early tender payment, outlined in the Offer to Purchase. The applicable Total Consideration or tender offer consideration will only be paid to holders of tendered notes that are subject to the Maximum Tender Offer to the extent that ProLogis accepts such notes for purchase. Holders of notes subject to the Maximum Tender Offer may not withdraw their tendered notes after the Early Tender Time, subject to applicable law.
The Total Consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of notes validly tendered and accepted for payment pursuant to the Maximum Tender Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase by reference to a fixed spread specified for each series of notes over the yield based on the bid side price of the U.S. Treasury Security specified for each series of notes on the front page of the Offer to Purchase, as calculated by the dealer managers at 2:00 pm, NYC time, on November 19, 2010. In addition to the Total Consideration or the tender offer consideration, as applicable, accrued and unpaid interest on the purchased notes will be paid from the applicable last interest payment date to, but not including, the maximum tender settlement date for such purchased notes.
The amount of each series of Maximum Tender Notes that is purchased in the Maximum Tender Offer will be based on the Maximum Tender Amount and the order of priority for such series, as set forth in the Offer to Purchase. The principal amount of Maximum Tender Notes purchased in the Maximum Tender Offer may be prorated as set forth in the Offer to Purchase.
The Maximum Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal. If any of the conditions are not satisfied, ProLogis will not be obligated to accept for payment, purchase or pay for, and may delay the acceptance for payment of, any tendered notes, in each event subject to applicable laws and may terminate the Maximum Tender Offer. The Tender Offers are not conditioned on the tender of a minimum principal amount of notes. ProLogis is not soliciting consents from holders of notes in connection with the Tender Offers.
