CubeSmart Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results; Same-Store NOI Grows 5.2%; FFO per Share Grows 12.5%; Occupancy Reaches 85% in July


August 2, 2012 - Wayne, PA

CubeSmart (NYSE: CUBE) announced its operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012.

"We continued to execute on all aspects of our business plan during the second quarter and reached an important strategic milestone with our successful debut bond offering," commented Chief Executive Officer Dean Jernigan. "Notably, NOI and FFO performance remains solid, investment activity continues to translate into improved portfolio quality, and sector consolidation is occurring as we grow assets under management."

Key Highlights for the Quarter

  • Reported funds from operations ("FFO") per share, as adjusted, of $0.18.
  • Increased same-store (330 facilities) net operating income ("NOI") 5.2% year over year, driven by 3.0% revenue growth and a 0.7% decrease in property operating expenses.
  • Ended the quarter with a same-store physical occupancy of 83.6%, gaining 360 basis points year over year and 470 basis points sequentially since March 31, 2012. Occupancy levels continued to rise during the rental season, reaching 85% on July 31, 2012, up 390 basis points year over year.
  • Closed on two acquisitions totaling $64.3 million, including one asset in the Dallas-Fort Worth market for $5.0 million and one of the remaining two assets in the second pool of the Storage Deluxe transaction for $59.3 million.
  • Closed on dispositions totaling $23.3 million, including three assets in Michigan and five assets on the Gulf Coast.
  • Issued $250 million of unsecured senior notes in debut public bond offering.

Funds from Operations

FFO, as adjusted for acquisition related costs, was $22.6 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared with $16.4 million for the second quarter of 2011. FFO per share, as adjusted, was $0.18 for the second quarter of 2012, compared with $0.16 for the same quarter last year. Excluding adjustments, FFO was $22.3 million for the quarter, compared with $16.0 million for the same period last year. Unadjusted FFO per share was $0.17 for the quarter, compared with $0.15 for the same quarter last year.

"We have experienced a very productive rental season characterized by significant move-in activity and all time high occupancy levels for the Company," remarked Chris Marr, President, Chief Operating Officer, and Chief Investment Officer of CubeSmart. "This trend has continued into July with occupancy reaching 85%, and we are optimistic about rental performance for the remainder of the year. Additionally, our acquisition pipeline remains sizeable, as we continue to source high-quality opportunities in our core markets. With the exit of the Michigan and Gulf Coast markets and the pending sale of our Southern New Mexico assets, we are executing on our disposition plan and continuing to enhance our portfolio. Beyond our owned portfolio, we picked up notable momentum in our third-party management business with the addition of a 31-store portfolio subsequent to quarter end."

Investment Activity

Heading into the second quarter, the Company had already closed on 20 assets associated with the previously announced Storage Deluxe transaction, which involved the acquisition of 22 Class A self-storage facilities located primarily in the greater New York City area for a total investment of $560 million. Of the remaining two encumbered assets associated with the transaction, the Company closed on one during the quarter for a purchase price of $59.3 million. Funding for the transaction included the assumption of $24.7 million of secured debt. The Company closed on the final Storage Deluxe asset subsequent to quarter end for $68.2 million, including the assumption of $29.3 million of secured debt.

In a separate transaction during the quarter, the Company acquired one asset in the Dallas-Fort Worth market for $5.0 million.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company closed on the acquisition of four assets in Houston, TX, one asset in Dallas, TX, one asset in Norwalk, CT, and one asset in Alexandria, VA for a total of $48.2 million. Additionally, the Company has six properties under contract for acquisition at a combined price of $26.9 million. Year to date, excluding assets associated with the previously announced Storage Deluxe transaction, the Company has either closed on or placed under contract the acquisition of 16 assets for $92.0 million.

On the disposition front during the quarter, the Company sold eight assets for total proceeds of $23.3 million. The facilities are located in Michigan, Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi and represent a complete exit from all four states. The Company has an additional 7 facilities under contract for disposition, for anticipated proceeds of $12.5 million.

Third-Party Management

Fee income from third-party management increased 30% during the second quarter of 2012, as compared with the second quarter of 2011. During the quarter, the Company was awarded seven new management contracts. At June 30, 2012, the Company managed 106 properties totaling 6.8 million square feet on behalf of third parties.

Subsequent to quarter end, the Company was awarded a management contract involving 31 stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.

Same-Store Results

The Company's same-store pool at June 30, 2012 represented 330 facilities containing approximately 21.5 million rentable square feet and included approximately 88.4% of the aggregate rentable square feet of the Company's 370 owned facilities. These same-store facilities represent approximately 80.8% of property net operating income for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

The same-store physical occupancy at period end for the second quarter of 2012 was 83.6% compared with 80.0% for the same quarter of last year. Same-store net rental income for the second quarter of 2012 increased 2.3%, same-store total revenues increased 3.0%, and same-store operating expenses decreased 0.7% from the same quarter in 2011. Same-store net operating income increased 5.2% compared with the same period in 2011.

Operating Results

The Company reported net income attributable to the Company's common shareholders of $1.0 million or $0.01 per common share in the second quarter of 2012, compared with net income attributable to the Company's common shareholders of $0.9 million or $0.01 per common share in the second quarter of 2011. Total revenues increased $12.8 million and total property operating expenses increased $3.8 million in the second quarter of 2012, as compared with the same period in 2011. Increases in total revenues are attributable to increased occupancy levels in the same-store portfolio, revenues generated from property acquisitions and increased revenues generated from third-party management. Increases in total property operating expenses are attributable to the impact of newly acquired properties, partially offset by a decline in same-store expenses. Same-store expenses benefited from lower real estate taxes and utilities, partially offset by increased advertising expenses.

Interest expense increased from $8.0 million in the second quarter of 2011 to $9.2 million in the current period due to a higher amount of outstanding debt primarily resulting from debt assumed and drawn in conjunction with the Storage Deluxe and other acquisitions, offset by lower interest rates on the Credit Facility in the 2012 period as compared with the 2011 period.

The Company's second quarter results include $0.2 million of income from discontinued operations and $6.2 million of gains on disposition of discontinued operations. These relate to the sale of eight properties during the quarter.

The Company's 370 owned facilities, containing 24.4 million rentable square feet, had a physical occupancy at June 30, 2012 of 83.3% and an average physical occupancy for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 of 81.2%.

Unsecured Senior Notes

On June 26, 2012, the Company issued $250 million of unsecured senior notes due July 15, 2022. The senior notes had an effective interest rate of 4.82% at June 30, 2012. In June 2012, net proceeds from the offering were used to repay the $129 million principal amount outstanding on the Company's unsecured revolving credit facility -- amounts that were drawn in conjunction with the repayment of $167 million in secured debt during the quarter. The Company intends to use the remaining net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, which may include acquisitions, investments in joint ventures and repayment or repurchase of other indebtedness.

Quarterly Dividend

On May 30, 2012, the Company declared a dividend of $0.08 per common share. The dividend was paid on July 16, 2012 to common shareholders of record on July 2, 2012.

Also on May 30, 2012, the Company declared a dividend of $0.484375 for the 7.75% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares. The dividend was paid on July 16, 2012 to holders of record on July 2, 2012.

2012 Financial Outlook

"The second quarter marked the culmination of our long-standing balance sheet repositioning efforts," noted Chief Financial Officer Tim Martin. "Specifically, our successful debut public bond offering solidified our unsecured balance sheet strategy, while providing attractive long-term financing, enhancing our maturity profile, and broadening our access to capital and financial flexibility. We are increasing our FFO per share guidance for 2012 as a result of better-than-expected pricing on our debut public bond issuance as well as improved expectations for same-store net operating income."

The Company is adjusting its previously issued estimates as well as underlying assumptions, and now expects that its fully diluted FFO per share for 2012 will be between $0.70 and $0.73 (previously between $0.68 and $0.73), and that its fully diluted net loss per share for the period will be between $0.05 and $0.08. The Company's estimate is based on the following key assumptions:

  • For 2012, a same-store pool consisting of 330 assets totaling 21.5 million square feet.
  • Same-store net operating income ("NOI") growth of 4.0% to 5.0% over 2011 (previously 3.0% to 4.0%), driven by revenue growth of 3.0% to 3.75% and expense growth of 1.0% to 2.0%.
  • General and administrative expenses of approximately $26.0 million to $27.0 million (previously $25.5 million to $26.5 million).
  • Combined performance of the $560 million Storage Deluxe acquisition and the $110 million of other 2011 acquisitions that is consistent with our underwriting expectations, equating to a 2012 yield of 6.0%.

Due to uncertainty related to the timing and terms of transactions, the impact of anticipated investment activity is excluded from guidance. For 2012, the Company is targeting $75 million to $125 million of acquisitions, excluding Storage Deluxe, and $35 million to $50 million of dispositions.

About CubeSmart

CubeSmart is a self-administered and self-managed real estate investment trust. The Company's self-storage facilities are designed to offer affordable, easily accessible and secure storage space for residential and commercial customers. According to the Self-Storage Almanac, CubeSmart is one of the top four owners and operators of self-storage facilities in the United States.

Non-GAAP Performance Measurements

Funds from operations ("FFO") is a widely used performance measure for real estate companies and is provided here as a supplemental measure of operating performance. The April 2002 National Policy Bulletin of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (the "White Paper"), as amended, defines FFO as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property and real estate related impairment charges, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company makes certain adjustments to FFO as defined by the White Paper to provide what Management believes to be a more useful and comparable FFO presentation.

Management uses FFO as a key performance indicator in evaluating the operations of the Company's facilities. Given the nature of its business as a real estate owner and operator, the Company considers FFO a key measure of its operating performance that is not specifically defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The Company believes that FFO is useful to management and investors as a starting point in measuring its operational performance because it excludes various items included in net income that do not relate to or are not indicative of its operating performance such as gains (or losses) from sales of property, impairments of depreciable assets, and depreciation, which can make periodic and peer analyses of operating performance more difficult. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of the Company's financial performance, is not an alternative to cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of the Company's liquidity, and is not indicative of funds available to fund the Company's cash needs, including its ability to make distributions.

We define net operating income, which we refer to as "NOI," as total continuing revenues less continuing property operating expenses. NOI also can be calculated by adding back to net income (loss): interest expense on loans, loan procurement amortization expense, loan procurement amortization expense -- early repayment of debt, acquisition related costs, equity in losses of real estate entities, amounts attributable to noncontrolling interests, other expense, depreciation and amortization expense, general and administrative expense, and deducting from net income: income from discontinued operations, gains on disposition of discontinued operations, other income, and interest income. NOI is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Management uses NOI as a measure of operating performance at each of our facilities, and for all of our facilities in the aggregate. NOI should not be considered as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows provided by operating, investing and financing activities, or other income statement or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP.
