FINANCIAL RESULTS:

In the second quarter of 2022, the Company generated net income attributable to common shareholders of $92.3 million or $1.09 per fully diluted common share, compared to net income attributable to common shareholders of $57.5 million, or $0.74 per fully diluted common share, in the second quarter of 2021.

Funds from operations for the quarter were $1.68 per fully diluted common share compared to $1.22 for the same period last year. Adjusted FFO per fully diluted common share for the quarter was $1.65, after adjusting primarily for a $1.9 million gain on the sale of non-real estate assets, compared to $1.20 for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.


OPERATIONS:

Revenues for the 580 stabilized stores wholly owned by the Company since December 31, 2020 increased 18.9% in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the same quarter of 2021. The increase largely resulted from the impact of a 20.0% increase in realized rental rates with occupancy for the second quarter of 2022 averaging 94.0%.

Same store operating expenses increased 4.3% for the second quarter of 2022 compared to the prior year period, the result of increased office and other expenses, repairs and maintenance, and utilities expenses with payroll and benefits remaining flat. Same store NOI increased 25.4% in the second quarter of 2022 as compared to the second quarter of 2021.

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company achieved double digit same store revenue growth in 32 of its 33 major markets. Overall, the markets with the strongest positive revenue impact were various markets in Florida; Los Angeles, CA; Atlanta, GA; Phoenix, AZ; Buffalo-Upstate, NY; Austin, TX; and Las Vegas, NV.

During the quarter, the Company acquired 13 stores in Florida (6), New York (3), California (1), Texas (1), Georgia (1), and Massachusetts (1) for a total purchase price of $262.6 million. One of the New York stores was acquired as a result of the Company’s acquisition of the remaining 14.2% ownership interest in one of its unconsolidated joint ventures. The purchase price of such acquisition included the Company’s net investment to acquire the remaining equity in this joint venture of $5.6 million and the carrying value of the Company’s total equity investment in the joint venture of $30.2 million.

At June 30, 2022, the Company was under contract to acquire seven self-storage facilities in California (4), North Carolina (1), Florida (1), and Nevada (1) for an aggregate purchase price of $137.4 million.

The Company’s 2022 same store pool consists of the 580 stabilized stores wholly owned since December 31, 2020. Forty-five of the stores purchased through June 30, 2022, at certificate of occupancy or that were in the early stages of lease-up are not included, regardless of their current occupancies. The Company believes that occupancy levels achieved during the lease-up period, using discounted rates, are not truly indicative of a new store’s performance, and therefore do not result in a meaningful year-over-year comparison in future years. The Company will include such stores in its same store pool in the second year after the stores achieve 80% sustained occupancy using market rates and incentives.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS:

When used herein, the words “intends,” “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” and similar expressions are intended to identify “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of that term in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and in Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

All forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which may cause our actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. We may also make additional forward-looking statements from time to time. All such subsequent forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, by us or on our behalf, are also expressly qualified by these cautionary statements. All forward-looking statements apply only as of the date made. 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.

There are a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements contained herein. Any forward-looking statements should be considered in light of the risks referenced in the “Risk Factors” section included in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Such factors include, but are not limited to:


  • adverse changes in general economic conditions, the real estate industry and in the markets in which we operate;
  • the effect of competition from new self-storage facilities or other storage alternatives, which would cause rents and occupancy rates to decline;
  • impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic or the future outbreak of other highly infectious or contagious diseases on the U.S., regional and global economies and our financial condition and results of operations;
  • 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, without limitation, those governing real estate investment trusts (“REITs”), tenant reinsurance and other aspects of our business, which could adversely affect our results;
  • loss of key personnel;
  • the Company’s ability to evaluate, finance and integrate acquired self-storage facilities on expected terms into the Company’s existing business and operations;
  • the Company’s ability to effectively compete in the industry in which it does business;
  • 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;
  • the Company’s existing indebtedness may mature in an unfavorable credit environment, preventing refinancing or forcing refinancing of the indebtedness on terms that are not as favorable as the existing terms;
  • interest rates may increase, impacting costs associated with the Company’s outstanding floating rate debt, if any, and impacting the Company’s ability to comply with debt covenants;
  • exposure to litigation or other claims;
  • risks associated with breaches of our data security;
  • the regional concentration of the Company's business may subject the Company to economic downturns in the states of Florida and Texas;
  • the Company’s cash flow may be insufficient to meet required payments of operating expenses, principal, interest and dividends; and
  • failure to maintain our REIT status for U.S. federal income purposes, including tax law changes that may change the taxability of future income.

The forward-looking statements are based on our beliefs, assumptions and expectations of our future performance, taking into account all information currently available to us. These beliefs, assumptions and expectations are subject to risks and uncertainties and can change as a result of many possible events or factors, not all of which are known to us. If a change occurs, our business, financial condition, liquidity and results of operations may vary materially from those expressed in our forward-looking statements. You should carefully consider these risks before you make an investment decision with respect to our securities.

(1) We believe that Funds from Operations (“FFO”) provides relevant and meaningful information about our operating performance that is necessary, along with net earnings and cash flows, for an understanding of our operating results. FFO adds back historical cost depreciation, which assumes the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably in the future. In fact, real estate asset values increase or decrease with market conditions. Consequently, we believe FFO is a useful supplemental measure in evaluating our operating performance by disregarding (or adding back) historical cost depreciation.
Funds from operations is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. (“NAREIT”) as net income available to common shareholders computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), excluding gains or losses on sales of properties, plus impairment of real estate assets, plus depreciation and amortization and after adjustments to record unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures on the same basis. We believe that to further understand our performance, FFO should be compared with our reported net income and cash flows in accordance with GAAP, as presented in our consolidated financial statements.
Our 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 (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indication of our performance, as an alternative to net cash flows from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our liquidity, or as an indicator of our ability to make cash distributions.
(2) Net operating income or "NOI" is a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measure that we define as total continuing revenues less continuing property operating expenses. NOI also can be calculated by adding back to net income: interest expense, impairment and casualty losses, operating lease expenses, depreciation and amortization expense, any losses on sale of real estate, acquisition related costs, general and administrative expense, and deducting from net income: income from discontinued operations, interest income, any gains on sale of real estate, and equity in income of joint ventures. We believe that NOI is a meaningful measure to investors in evaluating our operating performance, because we utilize NOI in making decisions with respect to capital allocations, in determining current property values, and in comparing period-to-period and market-to-market property operating results. Additionally, NOI is widely used in the real estate industry and the self-storage industry to measure the performance and value of real estate assets without regard to various items included in net income that do not relate to or are not indicative of operating performance, such as depreciation and amortization, which can vary depending on accounting methods and book value of assets. NOI should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP, such as total revenues, operating income and net income.
(3) Includes the stores owned and/or managed by the Company for the entire periods presented that are consolidated in our financial statements. Does not include unconsolidated joint ventures or other stores managed by the Company.
(4) Revenues and expenses do not include items related to tenant reinsurance.
(5) Does not include unconsolidated joint venture stores or other stores managed by the Company.
(6) Other administrative expenses include office rent, travel expense, investor relations and miscellaneous other expenses.
