Download PDF Download PDF

GLENDALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 20, 2014-- Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) announced today operating results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

Operating Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2013

For the three months ended December 31, 2013, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $243.7 million or $1.41 per diluted common share, compared to $209.5 million or $1.22 per diluted common share for the same period in 2012, representing an increase of $34.2 million or $0.19 per diluted common share. This increase is due primarily to (i) a $38.1 million increase in self-storage net operating income and (ii) a $12.0 million reduction in income allocated to preferred shareholders due to redemptions, offset by (iii) a $16.3 million increase in depreciation and amortization associated with acquired real estate facilities.

Our self-storage net operating income increased $38.1 million in the three months ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012, including $24.7 million for our Same Store Facilities and $13.4 million for our non-Same Store Facilities. Revenues for the Same Store Facilities increased 5.4% or $22.0 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012, due to higher realized annual rent per occupied square foot and higher average occupancy. Cost of operations for the Same Store Facilities decreased by 2.6% or $2.7 million in the quarter ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012, due primarily to lower advertising and selling costs offset partially by higher snow removal and property tax expense. The increase in net operating income for the non-Same Store Facilities is due primarily to the impact of the acquisition of 145 self-storage facilities from third parties since January 2012.

Operating Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2013

For the year ended December 31, 2013, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $844.7 million or $4.89 per diluted common share, compared to $669.7 million or $3.90 per diluted common share for the same period in 2012, representing an increase of $175.0 million or $0.99 per diluted common share. This increase is due primarily to (i) a $124.6 million increase in self-storage net operating income, (ii) a $68.9 million reduction in income allocated to preferred shareholders due to redemptions, including our equity share of PSB, (iii) an $8.2 million increase from foreign currency exchange gains, offset partially by (iv) a $29.6 million increase in depreciation and amortization associated with acquired real estate facilities.

Our self-storage net operating income increased $124.6 million in the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012, including $93.0 million for our Same Store Facilities and $31.6 million for our non-Same Store Facilities. Revenues for the Same Store Facilities increased 5.3% or $86.5 million in the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012, due to higher realized annual rent per occupied square foot and higher average occupancy. Cost of operations for the Same Store Facilities decreased by 1.3% or $6.5 million in the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012, due primarily to lower repairs and maintenance and advertising and selling costs, offset partially by higher snow removal and property tax expense. The increase in net operating income for the non-Same Store Facilities is due primarily to the impact of the acquisition of 145 self-storage facilities from third parties since January 2012.

Funds from Operations

For the three months ended December 31, 2013, funds from operations (“FFO”) was $2.13 per diluted common share, as compared to $1.86 for the same period in 2012, representing an increase of $0.27 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 year ended December 31, 2013, FFO was $7.53 per diluted common share, as compared to $6.31 for the same period in 2012, representing an increase of $1.22 per share.

In addition to FFO, we often discuss “Core FFO” per share which is also a non-GAAP measure that represents FFO per share, adjusted to exclude the impact of (i) foreign currency exchange gains and losses, consisting of a gain of $7.8 million and $17.1 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively (a gain of $11.4 million and $8.9 million for the same periods in 2012), (ii) the impact of EITF D-42, including our equity share from PSB, representing charges totaling $12.0 million and $68.9 million, respectively, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012 (none for the same periods in 2013) and (iii) other items. We believe Core FFO is a helpful measure in understanding our ongoing earnings and cash flow. We also believe that the analyst community, likewise, reviews our Core FFO and Core FFO per share (or similar measures using different terminology). Core FFO is not a substitute for net income, earnings per share or cash flow from operations. Because other real estate investment trusts (“REITs”) may not compute Core FFO in the same manner as we do, may not use the same terminology, or may not present such a measure, Core FFO may not be comparable among REITs.

(d)

Allocated overhead represents administrative expenses for shared general corporate functions, which are allocated to self-storage property operations to the extent their efforts are devoted to self-storage operations. Such functions include data processing, human resources, operational accounting and finance, marketing and costs of senior executives (other than the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, whose compensation is allocated to general and administrative expenses).

 
(e) See attached reconciliation of Same Store NOI to operating income.
 
(f) Square foot occupancies represent weighted average occupancy levels over the entire period.
 
(g) Realized annual rent per occupied square foot is computed by dividing annualized rental income, before late charges and administrative fees, by the weighted average occupied square feet for the period. 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.
 
(h) Contract rent represents the applicable contractual monthly rent charged to our tenants, excluding the impact of promotional discounts, late charges, and administrative fees.

Investing and Capital Activities

During the three months ended December 31, 2013, we acquired 89 storage facilities with approximately 5.6 million net rentable square feet located in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia for approximately $765 million. This brings our total acquisitions for the year to 121 facilities for approximately $1.16 billion (8 million net rentable square feet).

During the three months ended December 31, 2013, we completed one new development facility adding 105,000 net rentable square feet at a cost of approximately $17 million. For the year ended December 31, 2013, we added 614,000 net rentable square feet from new development and expansion facilities for approximately $85 million.

As of December 31, 2013, we had development and expansion projects which will add approximately 1.8 million net rentable square feet of storage space at a total cost of approximately $196 million. A total of $52.3 million in costs were incurred through December 31, 2013, with the remaining costs expected to be incurred primarily in 2014.

In December 2013, we borrowed $700 million under a one-year term loan from our bank and $50.1 million on our credit facility to fund the acquisitions noted above. During January 2014, we repaid the balance outstanding on our credit facility and $100 million of the term loan.

On January 28, 2014, our joint venture partner in Shurgard Europe acquired 51% of the loan receivable from Shurgard Europe at face value of €158.6 million ($216.2 million) in cash.

Shurgard Europe Same Store Selected Operating Data

The Shurgard Europe Same Store Pool represents Shurgard Europe’s 163 facilities (8.7 million net rentable square feet) that have been operated on a stabilized basis since January 1, 2011 and therefore provide meaningful comparisons for 2012 and 2013. These 163 facilities represent approximately 86% of the aggregate net rentable square feet of Shurgard Europe’s self-storage portfolio. Our pro-rata share of the operating results for these facilities is included in “equity in earnings of unconsolidated real estate entities” on our income statement.

(a)     In order to isolate changes in the underlying operations from the impact of exchange rates, the amounts in this table are presented on a constant exchange rate basis. The amounts for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012 have been restated using the actual exchange rates for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013.
 
(b) Square foot occupancies represent weighted average occupancy levels over the entire period.
 
(c) Realized annual rent per occupied square foot is computed by dividing annualized rental income, before late charges and administrative fees, by the weighted average occupied square feet for the period. 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 is a non-GAAP 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. We present FFO and FFO per share because we consider FFO to be an important measure of the performance of real estate companies, as do many analysts in evaluating our Company. We believe that FFO is a helpful measure of a REIT’s performance since FFO excludes depreciation, which is included in computing net income and assumes the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time. We believe that real estate values fluctuate due to market conditions and in response to inflation. FFO computations do not consider scheduled principal payments on debt, capital improvements, distributions and other obligations of the Company. FFO and FFO per share are not a substitute for our cash flow or net income per share as a measure of our liquidity or operating performance or our ability to pay dividends. Because other REITs may not compute FFO in the same manner, FFO may not be comparable among REITs.

(a)    

We have 238 additional self-storage facilities that are not Same Store Facilities. Since January 1, 2013, we acquired 121 self-storage facilities for an aggregate of approximately $1.16 billion. Included in the table above for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 are revenues totaling $15.0 million and $19.3 million, respectively, and cost of operations totaling $5.7 million and $7.6 million, respectively, for these 121 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.
