Hypothetical Tender Offer Consideration (as defined below) calculated on the basis of pricing for the applicable U.S. Treasury Reference Security as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 7, 2019 and a Settlement Date (as defined below) on June 17, 2019.  The actual applicable Tender Offer Consideration for each series of Notes payable pursuant to the Offer will be calculated and determined as set forth in the Offer to Purchase. 

Holders must validly tender (and not validly withdraw) or deliver a properly completed and duly executed Notice of Guaranteed Delivery for their Notes at or before the Expiration Time (as defined below) in order to be eligible to receive the applicable Tender Offer Consideration.  In addition, holders whose Notes are purchased in the Offer will receive accrued and unpaid interest from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Settlement Date (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) for the applicable Notes.  The Issuer expects the Settlement Date to occur on June 17, 2019.  Notes tendered by Notice of Guaranteed Delivery and accepted for purchase will be purchased on the third business day after the Expiration Date, but payment of accrued interest on such Notes will only be made to, but not including, the Settlement Date.  

The Offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 14, 2019 (such time and date, as it may be extended, the "Expiration Time"), unless extended or earlier terminated by the Issuer.  The Notes tendered may be withdrawn at any time at or before the Expiration Time by following the procedures described in the Offer to Purchase. 

The Issuer's obligation to accept for purchase and to pay for the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver, in the Issuer's discretion, of certain conditions, which are more fully described in the Offer to Purchase, including, among others, the Issuer's receipt of aggregate proceeds (before underwriter's discounts and commissions and other offering expenses) from an offering of new senior unsecured notes, on terms satisfactory to the Issuer.  The complete terms and conditions of the Offer are set forth in the Offer Documents.  Holders of the Notes are urged to read the Offer Documents carefully. 

The applicable "Tender Offer Consideration" for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant to the Offer will be determined in the manner described in the Tender Offer Documents by reference to the applicable fixed spread specified for such Notes specified in the table above plus the yield based on the bid-side price of the applicable U.S. Treasury Reference Security specified in the table above at 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on June 14, 2019, unless extended or earlier terminated. 

The Issuer has retained Global Bondholder Services Corporation as the tender agent and information agent for the Offer.  The Issuer has retained J.P. Morgan Securities LLC ("J.P. Morgan") as the dealer manager for the Offer. 

Holders who would like additional copies of the Offer Documents may call or email the information agent, GBSC at (866) 924-2200.  Copies of the Offer to Purchase and Notice of Guaranteed Delivery are also available at the following website:  http://www.gbsc-usa.com/DigitalRealty.  Questions regarding the terms of the Offer should be directed to J.P. Morgan at (866) 834-4666 (toll-free) or (212) 834-6950 (collect). 

This press release shall not constitute an offer to buy or a solicitation of an offer to sell any Notes.  The Offer is being made solely pursuant to the Offer Documents.  The Offer is not being made to holders of Notes in any jurisdiction in which the making or acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities, blue sky or other laws of such jurisdiction.  In any jurisdiction in which the securities laws or blue sky laws require the Offer to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the Offers will be deemed to be made on behalf of the Issuer by J.P. Morgan or one or more registered brokers or dealers that are licensed under the laws of such jurisdiction.
