Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) announced today operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Operating Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2014

For the three months ended September 30, 2014, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $231.8 million or $1.34 per diluted common share, compared to $231.4 million or $1.34 per diluted common share for the same period in 2013. Self-storage net operating income increased $46.1 million, which was offset partially by (i) a $19.1 million decrease in earnings associated with foreign currency exchange gains and losses, (ii) a $14.5 million increase in depreciation and amortization associated with facilities acquired since January 2013, and (iii) an $8.9 million increase in earnings allocated to preferred shareholders due to the issuance of additional preferred shares.

The increase in our self-storage net operating income was the result of a $23.6 million increase for our Same Store Facilities combined with a $22.5 million increase for our non-Same Store Facilities. Revenues for the Same Store Facilities increased 5.5% or $24.7 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013, due to higher realized annual rent per occupied square foot and higher average occupancy. Cost of operations for the Same Store Facilities increased by 0.8% or $1.1 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013, due primarily to increases in property taxes offset partially by lower on-site property manager payroll and advertising and selling expense. The increase in net operating income for the non-Same Store Facilities is due primarily to the impact of the acquisition of 152 self-storage facilities since January 2013.

Operating Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014

For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $624.2 million or $3.61 per diluted common share, compared to $601.0 million or $3.48 per diluted common share for the same period in 2013, representing an increase of $23.2 million or $0.13 per diluted common share. This increase is due primarily to (i) a $115.9 million increase in self-storage net operating income, offset partially by (ii) a $48.1 million increase in depreciation and amortization associated with facilities acquired since January 2013, (iii) a $16.3 million reduction associated with foreign currency exchange gains and losses, (iv) an $18.5 million increase in earnings allocated to preferred shareholders due primarily to the issuance of additional preferred shares, and (v) a $12.6 million decrease in interest income due primarily to the repayment of our loan receivable from Shurgard Europe.

The increase in our self-storage net operating income was the result of a $60.8 million increase for our Same Store Facilities combined with a $55.1 million increase for our non-Same Store Facilities. Revenues for the Same Store Facilities increased 5.3% or $68.6 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013, due to higher realized annual rent per occupied square foot and higher average occupancy. Cost of operations for the Same Store Facilities increased by 2.0% or $7.8 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013, due primarily to increases in property taxes, snow removal, and utilities expense, offset partially by lower advertising and selling costs. The increase in net operating income for the non-Same Store Facilities is due primarily to the impact of the acquisition of 152 self-storage facilities since January 2013.

Funds from Operations

For the three months ended September 30, 2014, funds from operations (“FFO”) was $2.08 per diluted common share, as compared to $2.00 for the same period in 2013, representing an increase of $0.08 per share. FFO is a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) term defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts and generally represents net income before depreciation, gains and losses and impairment charges with respect to real estate assets.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, FFO was $5.81 per diluted common share, as compared to $5.40 for the same period in 2013, representing an increase of $0.41 per share.

We also present “Core FFO per share,” a non-GAAP measure that represents FFO per share excluding the impact of (i) foreign currency exchange losses of $3.0 million and $7.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively, (gains of $16.1 million and $9.3 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2013), and (ii) other items, comprised primarily of a $7.8 million accrual related to a legal settlement included in ancillary cost of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, a $4.1 million reduction in ancillary cost of operations associated with recognition of a deferred tax asset in the nine months ended September 30, 2014, our $1.4 million equity share of charges incurred by Shurgard Europe in closing a facility during the nine months ended September 30, 2013 as well as general and administrative expense associated with the acquisition of real estate facilities. We believe Core FFO per share is a helpful measure used by investors and REIT analysts to understand our performance. However, Core FFO per share is not a substitute for net income per share. Because other REITs may not compute Core FFO per share in the same manner as we do, may not use the same terminology, or may not present such a measure, Core FFO per share may not be comparable among REITs.

Property Operations – Same Store Facilities

The Same Store Facilities represent those facilities that have been owned and operated on a stabilized basis since January 1, 2012 and therefore provide meaningful comparisons for 2013 and 2014. The following table summarizes the historical operating results of these 1,982 facilities (125.4 million net rentable square feet) that represent approximately 88% of the aggregate net rentable square feet of our U.S. consolidated self-storage portfolio at September 30, 2014. The number of Same Store Facilities decreased from 1,983 at June 30, 2014 to 1,982 at September 30, 2014 due to development activities at a facility; as a result, comparisons should not be made between the current Same Store Facilities and previous presentations.

These measures exclude late charges and administrative fees in order to provide a better measure of our ongoing level of revenue. Late charges are dependent upon the level of delinquency, and administrative fees are dependent upon the level of move-ins. In addition, the rates charged for late charges and administrative fees can vary independently from rental rates. These measures take into consideration promotional discounts, which reduce rental income.
(d) Contract rent represents the applicable contractual monthly rent charged to our tenants, excluding the impact of promotional discounts, late charges, and administrative fees.

Investing Activities

During the three months ended September 30, 2014, we acquired 25 self-storage facilities (19 located in Florida, three in Maryland and one each in North Carolina, New Jersey and Virginia), with an aggregate of 1.8 million net rentable square feet, for approximately $239 million. Subsequent to September 30, 2014, we acquired ten self-storage facilities (three in Minnesota, two in Virginia, and one each in Arizona, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and Florida), with an aggregate of 929,000 net rentable square feet, for approximately $98 million in cash. We have four additional self-storage facilities with 333,000 net rentable square feet (one each in California, Minnesota, Texas and Washington) under contract, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $63 million, with estimated closing dates in the fourth quarter of 2014.

As of September 30, 2014, we had development and expansion projects in process which will add approximately 3.0 million net rentable square feet of storage space at a total cost of approximately $342 million. A total of $73 million in costs were incurred through September 30, 2014 with respect to these projects, with the remaining costs expected to be incurred over the next 15 months.

Realized annual rent per available square foot (“REVPAF”) is computed by dividing annualized rental income, before late charges and administrative fees, by the total available rentable square feet for the period. These measures exclude late charges and administrative fees in order to provide a better measure of our ongoing level of revenue. Late charges are dependent upon the level of delinquency, and administrative fees are dependent upon the level of move-ins. In addition, the rates charged for late charges and administrative fees can vary independently from rental rates. These measures take into consideration promotional discounts, which reduce rental income.

(a) FFO and FFO per share are non-GAAP measures defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts and, along with FAD, are considered helpful measures of REIT performance by REITS and many REIT analysts. FFO represents net income before real estate depreciation, gains or losses, and impairment charges, which are excluded because they are based upon historical real estate costs and assume that building values diminish ratably over time, while we believe that real estate values fluctuate due to market conditions. FAD represents FFO adjusted to exclude certain non-cash charges and to deduct capital expenditures. FFO and FFO per share are not a substitute for net income or earnings per share. FFO and FAD are not substitutes for GAAP net cash flow in evaluating our liquidity or ability to pay dividends, because they exclude investing and financing activities presented on our statements of cash flows. In addition, other REITS may compute these measures differently, so comparisons among REITS may not be helpful.

(a)

We have 240 additional self-storage facilities that are not Same Store Facilities, including 31 facilities acquired in 2014, 121 facilities acquired in 2013 and 24 facilities acquired in 2012. The average square foot occupancy during the three months ended September 30, 2014, is 93% for the facilities acquired in 2014, 92% for the facilities acquired in 2013, 93% for the facilities acquired in 2012 and 87% for the other non same store facilities.

(b) Net operating income or “NOI” is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of depreciation and amortization expense. We believe that NOI is a meaningful measure of operating performance, because we utilize NOI in making decisions with respect to capital allocations, in determining current property values, in evaluating property performance and in comparing period-to-period and market-to-market property operating results. In addition, we believe the investment community utilizes NOI in determining operating performance and real estate values, and does not consider depreciation expense because it is based upon historical cost. NOI is not a substitute for net income, net operating cash flow, or other related GAAP financial measures, in evaluating our operating results. This table reconciles from NOI for our self-storage facilities to the operating income presented on our income statement.
