About Industrial Property Trust Inc.
IPT is focused on acquiring, developing, and managing high-quality distribution warehouses that are leased to corporate customers. IPT's core strategy is to build a national industrial property operating platform 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, such as statements concerning IPT's further acquisition of industrial properties, 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, 2015 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on March 10, 2016,  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.

* Please see Supplement No. 10, dated December 13, 2016, to the Industrial Property Trust, Inc. (“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. If IPT’s board of directors determines, in its sole discretion, to terminate the sale of primary shares pursuant to the offering earlier or later than the dates set forth above, IPT will notify stockholders by filing a supplement to the Prospectus with the SEC.

Supplement No. 3 includes disclosure that IPT’s board of directors determined to reallocate $325 million in shares previously allocated to the distribution reinvestment plan portion of IPT’s public offering to the primary portion of the offering. As of April 4, 2017, IPT had received gross proceeds of approximately $1.645 billion from the sale of shares of common stock in the primary offering. Accordingly, as of April 4, 2017, approximately $232.7 million in shares of IPT’s common stock remained available for sale pursuant to the primary offering and approximately $122.0 million in shares may be issued pursuant to IPT’s distribution reinvestment plan, all of which may be sold in any combination of Class A shares or Class T shares. IPT plans to continue to offer shares pursuant to its distribution reinvestment plan following the cessation of the sale of primary shares in the offering. IPT reserves the right to reallocate the shares further between the primary portion of the offering and the distribution reinvestment plan. All prospectus supplements should be read in conjunction with the Prospectus.
