FIBRA Prologis Announces Third Quarter 2016 Earnings Results

MEXICO CITY, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- FIBRA Prologis (BMV:FIBRAPL 14), the leading owner and operator of Class-A industrial real estate in Mexico, today reported results for the third quarter of 2016.

Net earnings per CBFI in the third quarter was Ps. 0.7020 (US$0.0382) compared with Ps. 0.6997 (US$0.0433) for the same period in 2015. Funds from operations (FFO) per CBFI was Ps. 0.7730 (US$0.0419) for the third quarter compared with Ps. 0.6631 (US$0.0410) for the same period in 2015.


"We are pleased to report that our excellent operating performance continued in the third quarter," said Luis Gutierrez, CEO, Prologis Property Mexico. "Customer demand for logistics facilities in Mexico remains positive even in light of macroeconomic crosscurrents. We continue to see requirements from multinational retailers for large box and modern-grade facilities, especially in Mexico City's CTT corridor. Customers are consolidating their operations from smaller, lower-quality facilities into larger distribution centers—in doing so, they improve the efficiency of their supply chains and gain access to improving infrastructure."

"We anticipate ending the year with meaningful outperformance in operations and a significant decrease in capital expenditures, which in turn will offset peso devaluation in AFFO," said Jorge Girault, senior vice president, Finance, Prologis Property Mexico. "Additionally, we are revising our FFO to reflect the negative impact of debt mark-to-market that resulted from the refinancing a portion of the debt assumed at IPO. This non-cash adjustment has no impact on our AFFO or distributions."
