1 4Q 2012 Hurricane Sandy Hits Northeast US: Response and Resolution Featured Brokers Mike McCrary NAIOP, AIR Jones Lang LaSalle Los Angeles, CA Peter McWilliams NAIOP, AIR Jones Lang LaSalle Los Angeles, CA As October came to a close this year, the northeastern part of the US braced itself for Hurricane Sandy. The post-tropical superstorm swept through the New York/New Jersey area leaving millions without power, causing substantial flooding, and creating massive amounts of damage to buildings, homes, and infrastructure. Unlike Hurricane Irene in 2011, Sandy caused extensive flooding due to coastal flooding and tidal surges in combination with a full moon, low lying land, and high winds, bringing several cities to a complete halt. With four offices and hundreds of customers in the northeast, Prologis saw first-hand the devastation Sandy caused. As the damage reports came in we made efforts to contact and assist continued on page 2 >> Prologis participated in and sponsored conferences across the United States this past fall. There were many highlights from conferences this season. read about our brokers on page 4>> Broker Survey Recap During July and August 2012, Prologis conducted a Broker Perception Program to assess broker perceptions and expectations as a means of improving internal performance and increasing overall effectiveness in communication with the broker community. Feedback from brokers is extremely important. Prologis is currently reviewing and evaluating all received responses. In the future, Prologis will be sharing these results. See all the pictures on the following pages >> page 1

2 Hurricane Sandy continued from page 1 all customers as quickly and efficiently as possible. Below is a chronology of how Prologis plan for responding to Sandy s devastating impact evolved and took shape in the days and weeks following Sandy. BEFORE THE STORM Hamid Moghadam spoke as a discussion leader on the Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2013 panel during the ULI Fall Meeting in Denver, CO. Before Hurricane Sandy hit land, we took steps to prepare for the storm. Our local team met the Friday before the storm to review the company s emergency response handbook and develop a response plan specific to the event. Every roof in our portfolio was inspected to make sure all surfaces and drains were clear of any loose debris or materials. All customers were contacted to make sure they were aware of the impending storm and to take appropriate measures to prepare for the storm s effects. Satellite phones were distributed to the local team and their standard phone lines were also forwarded to our Orlando office so customers could speak with a live person if they called. DAY OF THE STORM: October 29th Hurricane Sandy hit the northeast coast in the early evening. Prior to the storm officially touching down on land, many areas were already impacted by abnormally high tidal surges and high winds. Once the storm hit, many areas experienced flooding and widespread power outages which affected millions of homes and thousands of businesses. Prologis offices closed early and remained closed after the storm moved through as damages were assessed. DAY ONE: October 30th Once the storm subsided, we reached out to all members of our local team to ensure everyone was safe. Many employees were left without access to their homes due to flooding or without power. Prologis arranged hotel rooms for those who were in need of a temporary home. As 2013 Chairman of NAIOP, Gene Reilly was passed the gavel during NAIOP Development 12 in Washington, D.C. (photo credit: Dennis Brack) Our local team rallied together quickly and toured as much of the portfolio as was possible, although many properties were still inaccessible due to flood conditions, downed power lines and/or fallen trees. Like millions of others on the northeast coast, offices and buildings remained without power and some experienced flooding and other effects of wind damage. It was quickly concluded that the Meadowlands was the hardest hit in the Prologis portfolio and would be where the majority of remediation and restoration work would take place. continued on page 3>> page 2

3 Hurricane Sandy continued from page 2 Prologis hand-delivered food and coffee to customers who experienced flooding One of our customers that experienced substantial damage during Hurricane Sandy was FedEx with a building located in Elizabeth, NJ. The roof of the building sustained approximately 35,000 square feet of damage in the storm. Our local team quickly responded to our customer s repair needs and within 24 hours, a temporary roof was up and permanent repair work began. As we continued to maintain constant communication with the FedEx team on the ground, the remaining repair work was completed within 8 weeks of the Hurricane. Of the major industrial property owners in Northern New Jersey, I believe that Prologis was probably the quickest to respond and most proactive in their approach to get its customers back to business, commented Blake Chroman, Vice President, Jones Lang LaSalle. They did an amazing job and I believe it was noticed by their customers and the rest of the market. ONE WEEK AFTER THE STORM Assessments were made on buildings throughout the northeast that were affected by Sandy and, with the exception of buildings in the Meadowlands, property issues were found to be generally contained to wind damage, sewer back-ups, and power outages. In the Meadowlands, approximately 65% of the buildings had experienced flood damage with a number of buildings taking in as much as 1-3 feet of water inside the building. Prologis Speaker Series during the SIOR Fall Conference 2012 was once again a major success. Pulitzer Prize nominee, author, and business journalist Kurt Eichenwald appeared as the featured speaker for the Speaker Series this year. A preliminary damage assessment was confirmed by our local team during this time. In the Meadowlands, the Prologis portfolio consists of 4.5 million square feet, (40-45 buildings total) of which approximately 2 million square feet (26 buildings, 34 tenants) experienced material flood damage. All customers were contacted, a majority in person, within the first four days after the storm. Our local team demonstrated Prologis commitment to customer service, by helping customers with a variety of immediate needs including: putting a remediation plan in place with each tenant to get their operations back up and running, hand-delivering food and coffee for over a week to each customer that experienced flooding, securing emergency gasoline, ordering construction supplies within the first few days before supplies were depleted, and relocating and finding temporary space for the customers to continue their business. As customers began to look forward from the damage to restoration plans, an insurance letter was put together for our local team to share with customers experiencing flood damage to help explain the steps related to the restoration process. Utilizing long-standing vendor relationships and national contracts, we also began to address water and roof damage and refurbishment plans for all of the continued on page 4>> page 3

4 Hurricane Sandy continued from page 3 affected properties. As power began to return slowly, our local team was already making progress on repair. Early estimates placed many customers back up and running within a few weeks, possibly longer for others. One of our larger Meadowlands customers who experienced tremendous water damage was Maggy London, a woman s apparel manufacturer and distributor. Like many of our impacted Meadowlands customers, Maggy London was without power and suffered an interior surge of 1-2 feet of water, crippling their operation. With a warehouse full of the client s product and tight delivery timelines to meet, the Prologis restoration team worked closely with and coordinated a massive effort to get this customer s operation back up and running in under two weeks, including remediation of the water damage and restoration of the premises. It is incredible that we were able to get our entire warehouse and computer server room remediated and reconstructed within seven days. I cannot thank Prologis enough for getting our facility back in working condition as quickly as you did, said Nicholas Gadaleta, VP Distribution of Maggy London. The gasoline shortage and the multi-hour gasoline lines posed a real problem during this time for employees and customers alike. With the assistance of Prologis personnel outside of NJ and our resourceful and loyal vendors in NJ, we secured a gasoline trailer from Pennsylvania, trucked it in, and set up two make-shift filling stations in New Jersey for use for employee cars, employee home generators, contractors, and customers as needed. TWO WEEKS AFTER THE STORM Two weeks after Hurricane Sandy hit, 60% of the water damage remediation in the Meadowlands was completed with 90% of the work completed by the end of November. Also in the Meadowlands, 30% of the re-construction was completed and 90% of the work is expected to be completed by the end of December. Displaced customers were provided with short term space ranging from 5,000 square feet to 40,000 square feet, and a few affected buildings were already back up and running. continued on page 5>> Featured Brokers continued from page 1 Mike McCrary, Executive Vice President of Jones Lang LaSalle, and Peter McWilliams, Managing Director of Industrial Services of Jones Lang LaSalle, each have more than 25 years of experience in the commercial real estate brokerage community. Both Mike and Peter are active members of NAIOP and AIR. Prior to joining Jones Lang LaSalle in 2009, Mike worked for Colliers International where he began his career in Mike, who graduated from Menlo College in 1989, makes his home in San Marino, California with his wife, Alison, and three daughters. Peter began his career in 1990 at CB Richard Ellis before moving on to Colliers International in Peter joined Jones Lang LaSalle in 2009 as well. Peter graduated from Cal Berkley in Peter, his wife Kelly, and four children make their home in Pasadena, California. In the past few years, the partners have placed five clients in Prologis facilities totaling more than 2.7 million square feet. One of these clients required a more creative leasing solution which Mike and Peter worked diligently to create. The client, a global athletic clothing company, was looking to find immediate leasing space in Los Angeles. To meet this need Mike and Peter, representing the client, composed a lease where the client would phase into a building piece by piece, as the client s projections indicated they would need more square footage over time. Overall, Mike and Peter were able to create a deal which will allow the client to take over the entire building, a total of 1.2 million square feet, by the beginning of Mike and Pete are such a pleasure to work with. They make an excellent team and their collaboration is something to be commended, commented Tyson Chave, Inland Empire s market office. When working on complex deals, I can rely on these partners to bend over backwards to accommodate their customers. page 4

5 Hurricane Sandy continued from page 4 SIX WEEKS LATER In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, there is still much work to be done to get customers up and running at pre-storm levels, but Prologis is proud to be a part of such an effort. Though our New Jersey office experienced flooding and was unavailable for several days, our local team took action and, in many cases, set-aside personal needs in order to support the company s response efforts. The members of the local team are to be commended. The local Prologis team did an outstanding job, working day and night to quickly find locations for displaced tenants, said Thomas Monahan, Senior Vice President, CBRE. Their property management team got to work right away; there appeared to be no down time and within weeks it was almost like there was never any hurricane damage. I give the Prologis team high accolades because they took the brunt of the storm and responded as well as anyone could respond. Once the post-sandy restoration efforts are completed, an evaluation will be conducted with our personnel in our Northeast offices, with an obvious focus on the experience in New Jersey. While it s difficult to be 100% prepared for natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, Prologis maintains detailed response plans in the event of such disasters, as well as evaluates the effectiveness of these plans following an event. Having plans in place that the local teams can draw on and customize has ensured our ability to provide consistent support to customers through a variety of natural disasters including the tsunamis in Japan, floods in Nashville, tornadoes in Memphis, and hailstorms in El Paso. In Japan, after the earthquake and tsunami hit in the spring of 2011, our local team provided immediate support, setting up temporary office space for displaced customers and providing food and other personal items to our customer s employees who were unable to return. In Nashville, Prologis was quick to respond to the flooding in the spring of 2010, visiting all affected buildings in our portfolio, setting up a provisional office for a Dunkin Donuts store, and securing temporary leased space at another Prologis facility in Nashville, all within 72 hours. These are just a couple examples of how Prologis response to natural disasters is quick and efficient, providing all possible support to our customers worldwide. But most importantly, we recognize that the impact of Hurricane Sandy has shaken communities throughout the northeast United States. In response, our local team assisted non-profit organizations in the area offering space for storage to the ASPCA and providing food to the senior citizens of the Township of Fairfield at their warming center established in response to the power outages in their town. Our employees have donated $3,810 which the Prologis Foundation will match in an effort to assist with disaster relief. As communities and customers rebuild and get back to work, Prologis would like to recognize the strength and dedication of all individuals who have been on the front lines assisting those in need.
