Revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, were up primarily due to increases in occupancy and rental rates for both new and existing customers and lower discounts to new customers.  Expenses were higher for the same periods due to increases in payroll, insurance and repair and maintenance expenses.

The Company's major markets with revenue growth above the portfolio average for the three months ended June 30, 2013, included Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and San Diego.  Major markets performing below the Company's portfolio average included Sacramento, Phoenix and Washington D.C.

Acquisition and Third-Party Management Activity:

During the quarter, the Company acquired four properties for an approximate purchase price of $48.3 million.  These properties are located in Hawaii, Maryland and Texas.  Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company acquired two additional properties located in Arizona for approximately $9.3 million.

The Company has 37 additional properties under contract for a total purchase price of approximately $305.3 million.  Of the 37 properties, 20 are from a previously announced portfolio located in California.  The remaining 17 properties are located across seven states.  The purchase of these properties is expected to occur by early in the fourth quarter of 2013.  These acquisitions are subject to due diligence and other customary closing conditions and no assurance can be provided that these acquisitions will be completed on the terms described, or at all.

During the quarter, the Company added six properties to its management program.  As of June 30, 2013, the Company managed 242 properties for third-party owners.  With an additional 279 properties owned and operated in joint ventures, the Company had a total of 521 properties under management.  The Company is the largest self-storage management company in the United States.

Balance Sheet:

During the quarter the Company's operating partnership subsidiary, Extra Space Storage LP (the "Operating Partnership"), executed a private placement of $250.0 million aggregate principal amount of its 2.375% Exchangeable Senior Notes due 2033 (the "Notes").  The Notes were issued at 98.5% of par value and are senior unsecured obligations of the Operating Partnership and are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Company.  The Operating Partnership intends to use the net proceeds from the private offering to fund previously announced property acquisitions, to repay the outstanding indebtedness under the Company's secured lines of credit and for other general corporate and working capital purposes.

As of June 30, 2013, the Company's percentage of fixed-rate debt to total debt was 84.7%. The weighted average interest rate on the Company's fixed and variable rate debt was 4.1% and 2.3%, respectively.  The combined weighted average interest rate was 3.8% with a weighted average maturity of approximately 5.6 years.

Dividends:

On June 28, 2013, the Company paid a second quarter common stock dividend of $0.40 per share to stockholders of record at the close of business on June 14, 2013.  This represents a 60.0% increase over the prior dividend.

Outlook:

The Company currently estimates that FFO per diluted share will be between $0.49 and $0.51 for the quarter ending September 30, 2013, and will be between $1.96 and $2.01 for the year ending December 31, 2013.  FFO estimates for the year are fully diluted for an estimated average number of shares and Operating Partnership units ("OP units") outstanding during the year.  The Company's estimates are forward-looking and based on management's view of current and future market conditions.

The Company's actual results may differ materially from these estimates, which include the following annual assumptions:

  • Same-store property revenue growth, including tenant reinsurance, between 6.0% and 7.0%.
  • Same-store property expense increase, including tenant reinsurance, between 2.25% and 3.0%.
  • Same-store property NOI growth, including tenant reinsurance, between 7.5% and 9.0%.
  • Net tenant reinsurance income between $36.0 million and $37.0 million.
  • General and administrative expenses between $52.5 million and $53.5 million, including non-cash compensation expense of approximately $5.0 million.
  • Average monthly cash balance of approximately $75.0 million.
  • Equity in earnings of real estate ventures between $11.0 million and $11.5 million.
  • Acquisition activity of approximately $400.0 million.
  • Interest expense between $74.0 million and $75.0 million.
  • Non-cash interest expense of approximately $1.3 million.
  • Weighted average LIBOR of 0.3%.
  • Weighted average number of outstanding shares, including OP units, of approximately 116.0 million.
  • Taxes associated with the Company's taxable Real Estate Investment Trust ("REIT") subsidiary between $9.5 million and $10.0 million, inclusive of approximately $5.4 million in solar tax credits.
  • Acquisition related costs of approximately $4.0 million.

The Company currently estimates that FFO as adjusted per diluted share will be between $0.51 and $0.53 for the quarter ending September 30, 2013, and will be between $2.01 and $2.06 for the year ending December 31, 2013.

Certain information set forth in this release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning our plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events, future revenues or performance, capital expenditures, financing needs, plans or intentions relating to acquisitions and other information that is not historical information. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "believes," "estimates," "expects," "may," "will," "should," "anticipates," or "intends," or the negative of such terms or other comparable terminology, or by discussions of strategy.

  • changes in general economic conditions, the real estate industry and the markets in which we operate;
  • failure to close pending acquisitions on expected terms, or at all;
  • the effect of competition from new and existing self-storage facilities or other storage alternatives, which could cause rents and occupancy rates to decline;
  • difficulties in our ability to evaluate, finance, complete and integrate acquisitions and developments successfully and to lease up those properties, which could adversely affect our profitability;
  • potential liability for uninsured losses and environmental contamination;
  • the impact of the regulatory environment as well as national, state and local laws and regulations, including those governing REITs, tenant reinsurance and other aspects of our business, which could adversely affect our results;
  • disruptions in credit and financial markets and resulting difficulties in raising capital or obtaining credit at reasonable rates or at all, which could impede our ability to grow;
  • increased interest rates and operating costs;
  • reductions in asset valuations and related impairment charges;
  • the failure of our joint venture partners to fulfill their obligations to us or their pursuit of actions that are inconsistent with our objectives;
  • the failure to maintain our REIT status for federal income tax purposes;
  • economic uncertainty due to the impact of war or terrorism, which could adversely affect our business plan; and
  • difficulties in our ability to attract and retain qualified personnel and management members.

All forward-looking statements are based upon our current expectations and various assumptions. Our expectations, beliefs and projections are expressed in good faith and we believe there is a reasonable basis for them, but there can be no assurance that management's expectations, beliefs and projections will result or be achieved.

We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise forward-looking statements which may be made to reflect events or circumstances after the date made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

Definition of FFO:

FFO provides relevant and meaningful information about the Company's operating performance that is necessary, along with net income and cash flows, for an understanding of the Company's operating results. The Company believes FFO is a meaningful disclosure as a supplement to net earnings. Net earnings assume that the values of real estate assets diminish predictably over time as reflected through depreciation and amortization expenses.  The values of real estate assets fluctuate due to market conditions and the Company believes FFO more accurately reflects the value of the Company's real estate assets.  FFO is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. ("NAREIT") as net income computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), excluding gains or losses on sales of operating properties and impairment write downs of depreciable real estate assets, plus depreciation and amortization and after adjustments to record unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures on the same basis. The Company believes that to further understand the Company's performance, FFO should be considered along with the reported net income and cash flows in accordance with GAAP, as presented in the Company's consolidated financial statements.

For informational purposes, the Company provides FFO as adjusted for the exclusion of non-recurring revenues and expenses, acquisition related costs and non-cash interest charges related to the Operating Partnership's exchangeable senior notes.  Although the Company's calculation of FFO as adjusted differs from NAREIT's definition of FFO and may not be comparable to that of other REITs and real estate companies, the Company believes it provides a meaningful supplemental measure of operating performance.  The Company believes that by excluding non-recurring revenues and expenses, the costs related to acquiring properties and non-cash interest charges from the exchangeable senior notes, stockholders and potential investors are presented with an indicator of its operating performance that more closely achieves the objectives of the real estate industry in presenting FFO.  FFO as adjusted by the Company should not be considered a replacement of the NAREIT definition of FFO and may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs or real estate companies that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently.  FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indication of the Company's performance, as an alternative to net cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or as an indicator of the Company's ability to make cash distributions.

Definition of Same-Store Properties:

The Company's same-store properties for the periods presented consist of 344 properties that are wholly-owned and operated and that were stabilized by the first day of the earliest calendar year presented.  The Company considers a property to be stabilized once it has been open three years or has sustained average square foot occupancy of 80.0% or more for one calendar year.  Same-store results provide information relating to property operations without the effects of acquisitions or completed developments and should not be used as a basis for future same-store performance or for the performance of the Company's properties as a whole.
