In April 2015, IPT completed five transactions totaling eight industrial buildings aggregating 584,000 square feet for approximately $44.9 million.

About Industrial Property Trust Inc.

IPT is focused on acquiring and operating high-quality distribution warehouses that are leased to corporate customers. IPT's core strategy is to build a national platform of high-quality industrial properties by targeting markets that have high barriers to entry, proximity to a large demographic base, and/or access to major distribution hubs. IPT has operated and elected to be treated as a real estate investment trust ("REIT") for U.S. federal income tax purposes, commencing with the taxable year that ended on December 31, 2013, and IPT intends to continue to operate in accordance with the requirements for qualification as a REIT.

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on IPT's current expectations, plans, estimates, assumptions and beliefs that involve numerous risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, IPT's ability to consummate additional acquisitions and otherwise execute on its investment strategy, the availability of affordable financing, IPT's ability to identify and time investments that will generate attractive returns for investors, customers' ability to continue to comply with the terms of their leases, and those risks set forth in IPT's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on March 5, 2015, as amended or supplemented by IPT's other filings with the SEC (available at www.sec.gov). Any of these statements could be inaccurate, and actual events or IPT's investments and results of operations could differ materially from those expressed or implied. To the extent that IPT's assumptions differ from actual results, IPT's ability to meet such forward-looking statements, including its ability to consummate additional acquisitions and financings, to invest in a diversified portfolio of high-quality real estate investments, and to generate attractive returns for investors, may be significantly hindered. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. IPT cannot assure you that it will attain its investment objectives.

(“IPT”) prospectus, dated April 21, 2016 (the “Prospectus”), as previously supplemented by Supplement No. 3, dated August 15, 2016 and as subsequently supplemented thereafter. Supplement No. 10 describes that IPT’s board of directors has determined that IPT will cease new sales of primary offering shares at the earlier to occur of either (i) June 30, 2017 or (ii) the date on which IPT sells all of the shares that remain available for sale pursuant to the offering.
