On October 15, 2020, the Board of Directors of Extra Space Storage Inc. (the “Company”) approved a share repurchase program authorizing, but not obligating, the repurchase of up to $400 million of the Company’s common stock from time to time over the next three years. The Company expects to acquire shares through open market or privately negotiated transactions and may enter into a Rule 10b5-1 trading plan to facilitate open-market repurchases. The timing and amount of repurchase transactions will be determined by the Company’s management based on its evaluation of market conditions, share price, legal requirements and other factors. Repurchases are expected to be made from available cash on hand.
The new share repurchase program replaces the Company’s prior $400 million share repurchase program which expires on November 8, 2020. As of October 20, 2020, the Company had repurchased 826,197 shares at an average price of $82.09 per share, paying a total of $67.8 million under the expiring share repurchase program.
