"Our balance sheet is in excellent shape with no near-term maturities and a healthy level of liquidity, which is a result of our risk management strategy," said Jorge Girault, senior vice president, Finance, Prologis Mexico. "In line with this strategy, the option contract we entered into earlier this year effectively removes any impact from the peso weakening beyond 20MXN per USD for the remainder of the year. With the near-term addressed, we are actively working on addressing our medium- and long-term maturities."
