Extra Space Storage Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2011 Results


October 27, 2011 - Salt Lake City, UT

Extra Space Storage Inc. (NYSE: EXR), a leading owner and operator of self-storage properties in the United States, announced operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Highlights for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2011:

  • Achieved funds from operations ("FFO") of $0.32 per diluted share including lease up dilution of $0.02 per share, resulting in approximately 33% year-over-year growth.

  • Increased same-store revenue and net operating income ("NOI") by 4.9% and 7.3%, respectively, as compared to the same period in 2010. Same-store revenue and NOI include tenant reinsurance income and expenses.

  • Grew same-store occupancy by 340 basis points to 89.1% at September 30, 2011, compared to 85.7% as of September 30, 2010.

  • Acquired three properties during the quarter and an additional 21 properties subsequent to the end of the quarter.

  • Closed $50.0 million in secured financing with a fixed interest rate of 3.7% and renegotiated lower interest rates on three loans. Subsequent to the end of the quarter the interest rates on four additional loans were reduced.

  • Paid a quarterly dividend of $0.14 per share.

Spencer F. Kirk, Chairman and CEO of Extra Space Storage Inc., commented: "This quarter represents the highest FFO Extra Space Storage has ever achieved, excluding one-time events. We posted strong revenue and NOI gains on top of significant positive results reported last year. Solid rental volumes and lower vacates, coupled with an increase in street rates of over 3% year-over-year, resulted in strong core performance."

Forward-Looking Statements:

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. We may also make additional forward-looking statements from time to time.

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:

  • changes in general economic conditions, the real estate industry and the markets in which we operate;

  • 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, without limitation, those governing REITs, which could increase our expenses and reduce our cash available for distribution;

  • 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;

  • delays in the development and construction process, which could adversely affect our profitability;

  • 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

  • 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.

Notes to Financial Information:

The Company operates as a self-managed and self-administered REIT. Readers are encouraged to find further detail regarding Extra Space Storage's organizational structure in its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC.

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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), excluding gains or losses on sales of operating properties, 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 gains from early extinguishment of debt, non-recurring write-downs, unrecovered acquisition and development costs and non-cash interest charges related to ASC 470-20 (formerly FASB Staff Position No. APB 14-1). 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 gains from early extinguishment of debt, non-recurring write-downs, the costs related to acquiring properties and non-cash charges related to ASC 470-20 (formerly FASB Staff Position No. APB 14-1), 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 three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 consisted of 253 properties that were wholly-owned and operated and that were stabilized by the first day of each period. 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.
