FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Extra Space Storage Inc. Reports 2023 First Quarter Results
SALT LAKE CITY, May 2, 2023 — Extra Space Storage Inc. (NYSE: EXR) (the “Company”), a leading owner and operator of self-storage facilities in the United States and a constituent of the S&P 500, announced operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2023.
Highlights for the three months ended March 31, 2023:
•Achieved net income attributable to common stockholders of $1.46 per diluted share, representing a 3.3% decrease compared to the same period in the prior year.
•Achieved funds from operations attributable to common stockholders and unit holders (“FFO”) of $2.02 per diluted share. FFO, excluding adjustments (“Core FFO”), was also $2.02 per diluted share, representing a 0.5% increase compared to the same period in the prior year.
•Increased same-store revenue by 7.4% and same-store net operating income (“NOI”) by 8.7% compared to the same period in the prior year.
•Reported same-store occupancy of 93.5% as of March 31, 2023, compared to 94.3% as of March 31, 2022.
•Acquired one store at completion of construction (a “Certificate of Occupancy store” or “C of O store”) for a total cost of approximately $13.1 million.
•In conjunction with joint venture partners, acquired five operating stores for a total cost of approximately $101.2 million, of which the Company invested $20.2 million.
•Originated $53.0 million in mortgage and mezzanine bridge loans and sold $34.2 million in mortgage bridge loans.
•Completed a public bond offering issuing $500.0 million of 5.7% senior unsecured notes due 2028.

Joe Margolis, CEO of Extra Space Storage Inc., commented: “We maintained strong first quarter occupancy, driving first quarter same-store net operating income growth of 8.7%, despite exceptionally difficult year over year comparables. We are excited about our announcement subsequent to quarter end of our strategic combination with Life Storage, Inc. in a leverage neutral, all-stock transaction. The pending merger will create a preeminent storage platform, which we expect to create significant synergies and unlock additional value for both companies' stockholders.”
FFO Per Share:
The following table (unaudited) outlines the Company’s FFO and Core FFO for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022. The table also provides a reconciliation to GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders and earnings per diluted share for each period presented (amounts shown in thousands, except share and per share data):
|For the Three Months Ended March 31,|

Weighted average number of shares – diluted3
|143,357,961 ||142,798,058 |
(1)Per share amounts may not recalculate due to rounding.
(2)Adjustment to account for the difference between the number of shares used to calculate earnings per share and the number of shares used to calculate FFO per share. Earnings per share is calculated using the two-class method, which uses a lower number of shares than the calculation for FFO per share and Core FFO per share, which are calculated assuming full redemption of all OP units as described in note (3).
(3)Extra Space Storage LP (the “Operating Partnership”) has outstanding preferred and common Operating Partnership units (“OP units”). These OP units can be redeemed for cash or, at the Company’s election, shares of the Company’s common stock. Redemption of all OP units for common stock has been assumed for purposes of calculating the weighted average number of shares — diluted, as presented above. The computation of weighted average number of shares — diluted, for FFO per share and Core FFO per share also includes the effect of share-based compensation plans.
Operating Results and Same-Store Performance:
The following table (unaudited) outlines the Company’s same-store performance for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 (amounts shown in thousands, except store count data)1:

(4)Includes utilities and miscellaneous other store expenses.
Same-store revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2023 increased compared to the same period in 2022 due to higher average rates to existing customers and higher other operating income partially offset by lower occupancy.
Same-store expenses increased for the three months ended March 31, 2023 compared to the same period in 2022 due to increases in payroll, marketing, credit card processing fees, utilities and insurance, partially offset by savings in repairs and maintenance and property taxes.
Details related to the same-store performance of stores by metropolitan statistical area (“MSA”) for the three months ended March 31, 2023 are provided in the supplemental financial information published on the Company’s Investor Relations website at https://ir.extraspace.com/.

Preferred Stock Investment:
On May 1, 2023, the Company invested $150.0 million in shares of newly issued convertible preferred stock of Strategic Storage Trust VI, Inc., an affiliate of SmartStop Self Storage REIT, Inc. The dividend rate for the preferred shares is 8.35% per annum, subject to increase after five years. The preferred shares are generally not redeemable for three years, except in the case of a change of control, initial listing or certain other events, and are redeemable thereafter subject to a redemption premium.
During the three months ended March 31, 2023, the Company originated $53.0 million in bridge loans and sold $34.2 million in bridge loans. The Company has an additional $229.8 million in bridge loans that closed subsequent to quarter end or are under agreement to close in 2023 and an additional $50.0 million under agreement to close in 2024. Additional details related to the Company's loan activity and balances held are included in the supplemental financial information published on the Company’s Investor Relations website at https://ir.extraspace.com/.

During the three months ended March 31, 2023, the Company completed a public bond offering issuing $500.0 million of 5.7% senior unsecured notes due 2028. Full details related to the Company's debt schedule are included in the supplemental financial information published on the Company’s Investor Relations website at https://ir.extraspace.com/.
During the three months ended March 31, 2023, the Company did not issue any shares on its ATM program, and it currently has $800.0 million available for issuance. The Company did not repurchase any shares of common stock using its stock repurchase program during the quarter, and as of March 31, 2023, the Company had authorization to purchase up to an additional $337.0 million under the plan.
As of March 31, 2023, the Company’s percentage of fixed-rate debt to total debt was 70.7%. Net of the impact of variable rate receivables, the effective fixed-rate debt to total debt was 77.6%. The weighted average interest rates of the Company’s fixed and variable-rate debt were 3.6% and 6.0%, respectively. The combined weighted average interest rate was 4.3% with a weighted average maturity of approximately 5.0 years.
Subsequent to quarter end, on April 4, 2023, S&P Global placed all of its ratings on the Company, including its BBB issuer rating, to CreditWatch with positive implications, stating that the CreditWatch placement reflects S&P Global's view that the pending merger with Life Storage will enhance the Company's credit profile, given the expected increase in scale and synergy opportunities following the merger.
On March 31, 2023, the Company paid a first quarter common stock dividend of $1.62 per share to stockholders of record at the close of business on March 15, 2023, an 8.0% increase over the prior quarter's dividend.

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 income. Net income assumes 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 stores and impairment write downs of depreciable real estate assets, plus depreciation and amortization related to real estate 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. FFO should not be considered a replacement of net income computed in accordance with GAAP.
For informational purposes, the Company also presents Core FFO. Core FFO excludes revenues and expenses not core to our operations and non-cash interest. Although the Company’s calculation of Core FFO 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 revenues and expenses not core to our operations and non-cash interest charges, stockholders and potential investors are presented with an indicator of our operating performance that more closely achieves the objectives of the real estate industry in presenting FFO. Core FFO by the Company should not be considered a replacement of the NAREIT definition of FFO. The computation of FFO 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:
The Company’s same-store pool for the periods presented consists of 914 stores that are wholly-owned and operated and that were stabilized by the first day of the earliest calendar year presented. The Company considers a store to be stabilized once it has been open for three years or has sustained average square foot occupancy of 80.0% or more for one calendar year. The Company believes that by providing same-store results from a stabilized pool of stores, with accompanying operating metrics including, but not limited to occupancy, rental revenue (growth), operating expenses (growth), net operating income (growth), etc., stockholders and potential investors are able to evaluate operating performance without the effects of non-stabilized occupancy levels, rent levels, expense levels, acquisitions or completed developments. Same-store results should not be used as a basis for future same-store performance or for the performance of the Company’s stores as a whole.
