Extra Space Storage Inc. Announces 2nd Quarter 2023 Dividend
Upon the payment of the second quarter 2023 dividend, both the Company and Life Storage, Inc. ("Life Storage" or "LSI") will have paid two quarterly dividends in 2023. In accordance with the previously announced pending merger agreement between EXR and LSI, the timing of any dividend payments for the two companies going forward will be aligned starting with the third quarter of 2023 and is expected to follow EXR's customary dividend timing.
Furthermore, for the quarter in which the pending merger between EXR and LSI closes, which could be as early as the third quarter of 2023, it is anticipated that both companies will pay a one-time dividend at or around the closing date. Such one-time dividend paid by each of EXR and LSI will either be a pro-rata dividend to cover the time period between the start of the quarter and the closing date or, if required, a REIT dividend consistent with the terms of the merger agreement. Separately, it is anticipated that any amount paid in the same quarter as closing (but prior to closing) will be attributed to the total amount paid for such quarter, so that between the pre-closing dividend and the remaining quarterly dividend paid post-closing in that same quarter, an EXR stockholder will receive a total dividend consistent with the amount that the EXR board of directors would have otherwise declared for the whole quarter absent the closing.
Both EXR and LSI will provide an update on the exact timing and amounts of their respective dividends once the merger closing timeline becomes more clear.
