PROLOGIS YEN FINANCE LLC
0.850% NOTES DUE 2030
PROLOGIS YEN FINANCE LLC, a limited liability company organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware (hereinafter called the “Company,” which term shall include any successor under the Indenture hereinafter referred to), for value received, hereby promises to pay to USB Nominees (UK) Limited, or registered assigns, upon presentation, the principal sum of FIVE BILLION THREE HUNDRED MILLION YEN (¥5,300,000,000) on June 24, 2030 and to pay interest on the outstanding principal amount thereon at the rate of 0.850% per annum, until the entire principal hereof is paid or made available for payment.
Interest shall accrue from and including June 24, 2020 or from the most recent Interest Payment Date to which interest has been paid or duly provided for, and be payable semi-annually in arrears on June 24 and December 24 of each year, commencing on December 24, 2020. The interest so payable, and punctually paid or duly provided for on any Interest Payment Date shall, as provided in the Indenture, be paid to the Person in whose name this Security (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on the Regular Record Date for such interest which shall be the June 9 or the December 9 (whether or not a Yen Business Day), as the case may be, next preceding such Interest Payment Date. Interest on this Security shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months. If any Interest Payment Date, maturity date or earlier date of redemption falls on a day that is not a Yen Business Day, the required payment shall be made on the next Yen Business Day as if it were made on the date the payment was due and no interest shall accrue on the amount so payable for the period from and after that Interest Payment Date, that maturity date or that date of redemption, as the case may be, until the next Yen Business Day. For purposes of the notes, “Yen Business Day” means any day, other than a Saturday or Sunday, which is not a day on which banking institutions in The City of New York, London or Tokyo are authorized or required by law, regulation or executive order to close. Any such interest not so punctually paid or duly provided for shall forthwith cease to be payable to the Holder on such Regular Record Date, and may either be paid to the Person in whose name this Security (or one or more Predecessor Securities) is registered at the close of business on a Special Record Date for the payment of such Defaulted Interest to be fixed by the Trustee, notice whereof shall be given to Holders of Securities of this series not more than 15 days and not less than 10 days prior to such Special Record Date, or may be paid at any time in any other lawful manner not inconsistent with the requirements of any securities exchange on which the Securities may be listed, and upon such notice as may be required by such exchange, all as more fully provided in the Indenture.
Payment of the principal of, or premium or Redemption Price, if applicable, on, and interest on this Security shall be made at the office or agency maintained for such purpose in St. Paul, Minnesota, initially the corporate trust office of the Paying Agent, located at 111 Fillmore Ave. East, St. Paul, Minnesota 55107, in yen.
Payments of principal of, premium or Redemption Price, if any, and interest in respect of this Security shall be made by wire transfer of immediately available funds in yen. If the yen is unavailable to the Company due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond the Company’s control, then all payments in respect of the Securities shall be made in U.S. Dollars until the yen is again available to the Company. In such circumstances, the amount payable on any date in yen will be converted into U.S. Dollars at the rate mandated by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System as of the close of business on the second Yen Business Day prior to the relevant payment date, or if the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System has not announced a rate of conversion, on the basis of the most recent U.S. dollar/yen exchange rate published in The Wall Street Journal on or prior to the second Yen Business Day prior to the relevant payment date or, in the event The Wall Street Journal has not published such exchange rate, the rate will be determined in our sole discretion on the basis of the most recently available Market Exchange Rate on or before the date that payment is due. Any payment in respect of this Security so made in U.S. Dollars shall not constitute an event of default under the Indenture. Neither the Trustee nor the Paying Agent (as defined below) shall be responsible for obtaining exchange rates, effecting conversions or otherwise handling redenominations. “Market Exchange Rate” means the noon buying rate in The City of New York for cable transfers of yen as certified for customs purposes (or, if not so certified, as otherwise determined) by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
Each Security of this series is one of a duly authorized issue of securities of the Company (herein called the “Securities”), issued and to be issued in one or more series under an Indenture, dated as of September 25, 2018 (herein called the “Base Indenture”), among the Company, Prologis, L.P. (herein called the “Parent Guarantor,” which term includes any successor under the Indenture) and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (herein called the “Trustee,” which term includes any successor trustee under the Indenture with respect to the series of which this Security is a part), as amended by the first supplemental indenture, dated as of September 25, 2018 (together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), among the Company, the Parent Guarantor, the Trustee, Transfer Agent, Paying Agent (which term includes any successor paying agent under the Indenture with respect to the series of which this Security is a part) and Security Registrar, to which Indenture and all indentures supplemental thereto reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights, limitations of rights, duties and immunities thereunder of the Company, the Parent Guarantor, the Trustee, the Paying Agent and the Holders of the Securities and of the terms upon which the Securities are, and are to be, authenticated and delivered.
The Securities are subject in all cases to any tax, fiscal or other law or regulation or administrative or judicial interpretation applicable to the Securities. Except as specifically provided for herein, the Company shall not be required to make any payment for any tax, duty, assessment or governmental charge of whatever nature imposed by any government or a political subdivision or taxing authority of or in any government or political subdivision.
If, as a result of any change in, or amendment to, the laws (or any regulations or rulings promulgated under the laws) of the United States (or any taxing authority thereof or therein), or any change in, or amendments to, an official position regarding the application or interpretation of such laws, regulations or rulings, which change or amendment is announced or becomes effective on or after June 18, 2020, the Company becomes or, based upon a written opinion of independent counsel selected by the Company, will become or there is a substantial probability that the Company will become obligated to pay Additional Amounts (as defined below) with respect to the Securities, then the Securities may be redeemed at the option of the Company, in whole, but not in part, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Securities, together with accrued and unpaid interest on the Securities to, but not including, the Redemption Date. Notice of any redemption shall be transmitted to Holders not more than 60 nor less than 15 days prior to the date fixed for redemption.
All payments in respect of the Securities shall be made by or on behalf of the Company without withholding or deduction for, or on account of, any present or future taxes, duties, assessments or governmental charges of whatever nature, imposed or levied by the United States or any taxing authority thereof or therein, unless such withholding or deduction is required by law. If such withholding or deduction is required by law, the Company shall, subject to certain exceptions provided for in the Officers’ Certificate dated June 24, 2020 pursuant to the Indenture, pay to a Holder who is not a United States person (as defined in the Indenture) such additional amounts (the “Additional Amounts”) on the Securities as are necessary in order that the net payment by the Company or a paying agent of the principal of, and premium or Redemption Price, if any, and interest on, the Securities to such Holder, after such withholding or deduction, shall not be less than the amount provided in the Securities to be then due and payable.
The Indenture contains provisions for defeasance at any time of (a) the entire indebtedness of the Company on this Security and (b) certain restrictive covenants and the related defaults and Events of Default applicable to the Company, in each case, upon compliance by the Company with certain conditions set forth in the Indenture, which provisions apply to this Security.
If an Event of Default with respect to Securities of this series shall occur and be continuing, the principal of, and premium or Redemption Price, if any, on, all of the Securities of this series at the time Outstanding may be declared due and payable in the manner and with the effect provided in the Indenture.
As provided in and subject to the provisions of the Indenture, unless the principal of all of the Securities of this series at the time Outstanding shall already have become due and payable, the Holder of this Security shall not have the right to institute any proceeding with respect to the Indenture or for the appointment of a receiver or trustee or for any other remedy thereunder, unless such Holder shall have previously given the Trustee written notice of a continuing Event of Default with respect to the Securities of this series, the Holders of not less than 25% in principal amount of the Securities of this series at the time Outstanding shall have made written request to the Trustee to institute proceedings in respect of such Event of Default as Trustee and offered the Trustee reasonable indemnity and the Trustee shall not have received from the Holders of a majority in principal amount of Securities of this series at the time Outstanding a direction inconsistent with such request, and the Trustee shall have failed to institute any such proceeding for 60 days after receipt of such notice, request and offer of indemnity. The foregoing shall not apply to any suit instituted by the Holder of this Security for the enforcement of any payment of principal hereof or any interest on or after the respective due dates expressed herein.
The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Company and the rights of the Holders of the Securities of each series to be affected under the Indenture at any time by the Company, the Parent Guarantor and the Trustee with the consent of the Holders of not less than a majority in principal amount of the Outstanding Securities of each series of Securities then Outstanding affected thereby. The Indenture also contains provisions permitting the Holders of specified percentages in principal amount of the Securities of each series at the time Outstanding, on behalf of the Holders of all Securities of such series, to waive compliance by the Company with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences. Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Security shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Security and of any Security issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange herefor or in lieu hereof, whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Security.
No reference herein to the Indenture and no provision of this Security or of the Indenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Company, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of, premium or Redemption Price, if applicable, on, and interest on this Security at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed.
As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, the transfer of this Security is registrable in the Security Register, upon surrender of this Security for registration of transfer at the office or agency of the Company in any Place of Payment where the principal of, premium or Redemption Price, if applicable, on, and interest on this Security are payable duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Company and the Security Registrar duly executed by, the Holder hereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing, and thereupon one or more new Securities of this series, of authorized denominations and for the same aggregate principal amount, shall be issued to the designated transferee or transferees.
The Securities of this series are issuable only in registered form without coupons in minimum denominations of ¥100,000,000 and any integral multiple of ¥10,000,000 in excess thereof. As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations therein set forth, Securities of this series are exchangeable for a like aggregate principal amount of Securities of this series of a different authorized denomination,as requested by the Holder surrendering the same.
No service charge shall be made for any such registration of transfer or exchange, but the Company may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection therewith.
Prior to due presentment of this Security for registration of transfer, the Company, the Trustee, the Paying Agent and any agent of the Company, the Trustee or the Paying Agent may treat the Person in whose name this Security is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Security be overdue, and neither the Company, the Trustee, the Paying Agent nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

No reference herein to such Indenture and no provision of this Guarantee or of such Indenture shall alter or impair the guarantee of the undersigned, which is absolute and unconditional, of the full and prompt payment of the principal of and premium, if any, and interest on the Yen Note.
THIS GUARANTEE SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.
This Guarantee shall not be valid or obligatory for any purpose until the certificate of authentication on the Yen Note shall have been executed by the Trustee under the Indenture referred to above by the manual signature of one of its authorized officers. The validity and enforceability of this Guarantee shall not be affected by the fact that it is not affixed to any particular Yen Note.
An Event of Default under the Indenture or the Yen Notes shall constitute an event of default under this Guarantee, and shall entitle the Holders of Yen Notes to accelerate the obligations of the undersigned hereunder in the same manner and to the same extent as the obligations of the Company.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Guarantee to the contrary, the undersigned hereby waives any claims or other rights which it may now have or hereafter acquire against the Company that arise from the existence or performance of its obligations under this Guarantee (all such claims and rights are referred to as “Guarantor’s Conditional Rights”), including, without limitation, any right of subrogation, reimbursement, exoneration, contribution, or indemnification, any right to participate in any claim or remedy against the Company, whether or not such claim, remedy or right arises in equity or under contract, statute or common law, by any payment made hereunder or otherwise, including without limitation, the right to take or receive from the Company, directly or indirectly, in cash or other property or by setoff or in any other manner, payment or security on account of such claim or other rights. Guarantor hereby agrees not to exercise any rights which may be acquired by way of contribution under this Guarantee or any other agreement, by any payment made hereunder or otherwise, including, without limitation, the right to take or receive from any other Guarantor, directly or indirectly, in cash or other property or by setoff or in any other manner, payment or security on account of such contribution rights. If, notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, any amount shall be paid to the undersigned on account of the Guarantor’s Conditional Rights and either (i) such amount is paid to such undersigned party at any time when the indebtedness shall not have been paid or performed in full, or (ii) regardless of when such amount is paid to such undersigned party, any payment made by the Company to a Holder that is at any time determined to be a Preferential Payment (as defined below), then such amount paid to the undersigned shall be held in trust for the benefit of Holder and shall forthwith be paid to such Holder to be credited and applied upon the indebtedness, whether matured or unmatured. Any such payment is herein referred to as a “Preferential Payment” to the extent the Company makes any payment to Holder in connection with the Yen Note, and any or all of such payment is subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required to be repaid or paid over to a trustee, receiver or any other entity, whether under any bankruptcy act or otherwise.
To the extent that any of the provisions of the immediately preceding paragraph shall not be enforceable, the undersigned agrees that until such time as the indebtedness has been paid and performed in full and the period of time has expired during which any payment made by the Company or the undersigned to a Holder may be determined to be a Preferential Payment, Guarantor’s Conditional Rights to the extent not validly waived shall be subordinate to Holders’ right to full payment and performance of the indebtedness and the undersigned shall not enforce any of Guarantor’s Conditional Rights until such time as the indebtedness has been paid and performed in full and the period of time has expired during which any payment made by the Company or the undersigned to Holders may be determined to be a Preferential Payment.
The obligations of the undersigned to the Holders of the Yen Notes and to the Trustee pursuant to this Guarantee and the Indenture are expressly set forth in Article Sixteen of the Indenture and reference is hereby made to the Indenture for the precise terms of this Guarantee and all of the other provisions of the Indenture to which this Guarantee relates.
Capitalized terms used in this Guarantee which are not defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture.
