Public Storage Reports Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2012

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Public Storage Reports Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 201217:09 EDT Thursday, May 03, 2012 GLENDALE, Calif. (Business Wire) -- Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) announced today operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012. Operating Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2012 For the three months ended March 31, 2012, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $125.3 million or $0.73 per diluted common share, compared to $148.1 million or $0.87 per diluted common share for the same period in 2011, representing a decrease of $22.8 million or $0.14 per diluted common share. This decrease is due to (i) a $30.1 million reduction in income allocated to common shareholders, in connection with applying EITF D-42 to our redemptions of preferred shares and our pro rata share of PS Business Parks, Inc.'s (“PSB”) preferred equity redemptions and (ii) a $19.1 million decline in foreign currency exchange gain, offset partially by (iii) improved property operations. Revenues for the Same Store Facilities (see table below) increased 4.8% or $17.4 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011, primarily due to a 0.6% increase in average occupancy and a 4.1% increase in realized annual rent per occupied square foot. Cost of operations for the Same Store Facilities increased by 1.9% or $2.4 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011. Net operating income for our Same Store Facilities increased 6.3% or $15.0 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011. Funds from Operations For the three months ended March 31, 2012, funds from operations (“FFO”) was $1.35 per diluted common share as compared to $1.48 for the same period in 2011, representing a decrease of $0.13. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, FFO was impacted by a foreign currency exchange gain of $12.2 million (compared to $31.3 million for the same period in 2011) and a $27.1 million charge in applying EITF D-42 to our and PSB's redemptions of preferred shares (compared to a $3.0 million gain for the same period in 2011). The following table provides a summary of the per-share impact of the items noted above (unaudited):                 Three Months Ended March 31, 2012           2011           PercentageChange   FFO per diluted common share prior to adjustments for the following items $ 1.44 $ 1.28 12.5 %   Foreign currency exchange gain 0.07 0.18 Application of EITF D-42 to the redemption of our securities and our equity share from PSB   (0.16 )   0.02 FFO per diluted common share, as reported $ 1.35   $ 1.48 (8.8 )%   FFO is a term defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts. It is generally defined as net income before depreciation with respect to real estate assets and gains and losses on real estate assets. FFO is presented because management and many analysts consider FFO to be one measure of the performance of real estate companies. In addition, we believe that FFO is helpful to investors as an additional measure of the performance of a real estate investment trust (“REIT”), because net income includes the impact of depreciation, which assumes that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time, while we believe that the value of real estate fluctuates 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 is not a substitute for our cash flow or net income as a measure of our liquidity or operating performance or our ability to pay dividends. Other REITs may not compute FFO in the same manner; accordingly, FFO may not be comparable among REITs. See the attached reconciliation of net income to funds from operations. Property Operations – Same Store Facilities The Same Store Facilities represent those facilities that are stabilized and owned since January 1, 2010 and therefore provide meaningful comparisons for 2011 and 2012. The Same Store pool increased from 1,931 facilities at December 31, 2011 to 1,941 facilities at March 31, 2012. The following table summarizes the historical operating results of these 1,941 facilities (122.5 million net rentable square feet) that represent approximately 94% of the aggregate net rentable square feet of our U.S. consolidated self-storage portfolio at March 31, 2012.                 Selected Operating Data for the Same StoreFacilities (1,941 Facilities) (unaudited): Three Months Ended March 31, 2012           2011           PercentageChange (Dollar amounts in thousands, except for weighted average data) Revenues: Rental income $ 364,128 $ 347,754 4.7 % Late charges and administrative fees collected   19,800     18,743   5.6 % Total revenues (a)   383,928     366,497   4.8 %   Cost of operations: Property taxes 43,058 41,382 4.1 % On-site property manager payroll 25,928 25,773 0.6 % Repairs and maintenance 12,025 10,765 11.7 % Utilities 9,424 10,101 (6.7 )% Media advertising 3,145 4,046 (22.3 )% Other advertising and selling expense 7,360 7,818 (5.9 )% Other direct property costs (b) 9,084 9,143 (0.6 )% Supervisory payroll (c) 8,934 8,360 6.9 % Allocated overhead (d)   11,724     10,907   7.5 % Total cost of operations (a)   130,682     128,295   1.9 %   Net operating income (e) $ 253,246   $ 238,202   6.3 %   Gross margin 66.0 % 65.0 % 1.5 % Weighted average for the period: Square foot occupancy (f) 90.3 % 89.8 % 0.6 % Realized annual rent per occupied square foot (g) (i) $ 13.17 $ 12.65 4.1 % REVPAF (h) (i) $ 11.89 $ 11.36 4.7 %   Weighted average at March 31: Square foot occupancy 90.8 % 90.6 % 0.2 % In place annual rent per occupied square foot (j) $ 13.96 $ 13.42 4.0 % Total net rentable square feet (in thousands) 122,464 122,464 -   (a)     Revenues and cost of operations do not include ancillary revenues and expenses generated at the facilities with respect to tenant reinsurance and retail sales.   (b) Other direct property costs include administrative expenses that are solely attributable to the self-storage facilities, such as property insurance, office expenses incurred at the property and by supervisory personnel, telephone and data communication lines at the properties, business license costs and bank charges related to handling the properties' cash deposits.   (c) Supervisory payroll expense represents compensation paid to the management which directly and indirectly supervises the on-site property managers.   (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, information technology, marketing and costs of senior executives (other than the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, whose compensation is allocated to general and administrative expense).   (e) Net operating income or “NOI” is a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measure that excludes the impact of depreciation expense. Although depreciation is an operating 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, segment performance and comparing period-to-period and market-to-market property operating results. NOI is not a substitute for net operating income after depreciation in evaluating our operating results. See attached reconciliation of Same Store NOI to our net 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 annualizing the result of dividing rental income by the weighted average occupied square footage for the period. Realized annual rent per occupied square foot takes into consideration promotional discounts, which reduce rental income from the contractual amounts due.   (h) Annualized rental income per available square foot (“REVPAF”) represents annualized rental income which excludes late charges and administrative fees divided by total available net rentable square feet. REVPAF takes into consideration promotional discounts that reduce rental income from the contractual amounts due.   (i) Late charges and administrative fees are excluded from the computation of realized annual rent per occupied square foot and REVPAF because exclusion of these amounts provides a better measure of our ongoing level of revenue.   (j) In place annual rent per occupied square foot represents annualized contractual rents per occupied square foot without reductions for promotional discounts and excludes late charges and administrative fees.   The following table summarizes selected quarterly financial data with respect to the Same Store Facilities (unaudited):           Three Months Ended       March 31       June 30       September 30       December 31 Full Year   Total revenues (in 000's): 2012 $ 383,928 2011 $ 366,497 $ 375,543 $ 393,819 $ 386,196 $ 1,522,055   Total cost of operations (in 000's): 2012 $ 130,682 2011 $ 128,295 $ 122,776 $ 121,338 $ 104,632 $ 477,041   Property taxes (in 000's): 2012 $ 43,058 2011 $ 41,382 $ 40,264 $ 39,550 $ 26,063 $ 147,259   Repairs and maintenance (in 000's): 2012 $ 12,025 2011 $ 10,765 $ 10,993 $ 10,960 $ 12,519 $ 45,237   Media advertising (in 000's): 2012 $ 3,145 2011 $ 4,046 $ 3,360 $ 2,144 $ 992 $ 10,542   REVPAF: 2012 $ 11.89 2011 $ 11.36 $ 11.64 $ 12.16 $ 11.96 $ 11.78   Weighted average realized annual rent per occupied square foot for the period: 2012 $ 13.17 2011 $ 12.65 $ 12.61 $ 13.19 $ 13.26 $ 12.92   Weighted average square foot occupancy levels for the period: 2012 90.3 % 2011 89.8 % 92.3 % 92.2 % 90.2 % 91.2 %   Investing Activities During the three months ended March 31, 2012, we completed the acquisition of six self-storage properties (532,000 net rentable square feet), located in California, Florida (two), Massachusetts, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, for approximately $42 million in cash. In addition, during March 2012, we acquired the remaining interests we did not own in three consolidated partnerships for approximately $19.9 million in cash, plus the assumption of their share of existing debt totaling $4.8 million. As of May 3, 2012, we were under contract, subject to contingencies, to acquire four additional self-storage facilities, two in California and one each in Florida and New York (316,000 aggregate net rentable square feet) for an aggregate of approximately $46 million in cash. Capital Activities On March 21, 2012, we entered into a new credit facility, which replaced our existing facility. This facility provides for borrowings up to $300 million and expires on March 21, 2017. We have no borrowings against this facility at March 31, 2012 or as of May 3, 2012. On January 12, 2012, we issued $460.0 million of our 5.90% Series S Preferred Shares and on March 13, 2012, we issued $462.5 million of our 5.75% Series T Preferred Shares. The net proceeds from these issuances were used, in part, to fund the redemptions of higher rate preferred securities, as follows: On February 9, 2012, redeemed $206.7 million of our 6.75% Series L Preferred Shares. On February 21, 2012, redeemed $141.3 million of our 6.75% Series E Preferred Shares. On March 19, 2012, redeemed $8.8 million of our 6.85% Series Y Preferred Shares. On April 11, 2012, redeemed $476.6 million of our 6.625% Series M Preferred Shares. In addition, we expect to redeem our 7.0% Series N Preferred Shares on July 2, 2012 for $172.5 million. In connection with this redemption, we expect to incur approximately $5.4 million of EITF D-42 charges during the quarter ending June 30, 2012. Distributions Declared On May 3, 2012, our Board of Trustees declared a regular common quarterly dividend of $1.10 per common share. The Board also declared dividends with respect to our various series of preferred shares. All the dividends are payable on June 28, 2012 to shareholders of record as of June 13, 2012.

The distribution payout ratio is computed by dividing the distribution paid by FAD. FAD is presented because many analysts consider it to be a measure of the performance and liquidity of real estate companies and because we believe that FAD is helpful to investors as an additional measure of the performance of a REIT. FAD is not a substitute for our cash flow or net income as a measure of our liquidity, operating performance, or our ability to pay dividends. FAD does not take into consideration required principal payments on debt. Other REITs may not compute FAD in the same manner; accordingly, FAD may not be comparable among REITs.   (b) Common shareholders received dividends of $1.10 per common share for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $0.80 per common share for the same period in 2011.                 PUBLIC STORAGESELECTED FINANCIAL DATA   Reconciliation of Same Store Data and Net Operating Income toConsolidated Data of the Company (Unaudited)   Three Months EndedMarch 31, 2012                 2011 (Amounts in thousands) Revenues for: Same Store Facilities $ 383,928 $ 366,497 Non Same Store Facilities (a)   23,760     18,511     Self-storage revenues   407,688     385,008     Self-storage cost of operations for: Same Store Facilities 130,682 128,295 Non Same Store Facilities (a)   8,292     7,032     Self-storage cost of operations   138,974     135,327   Net operating income for: Same Store Facilities 253,246 238,202 Non Same Store Facilities (a)   15,468     11,479     Net operating income 268,714 249,681 Ancillary revenues 29,276 26,915 Interest and other income 5,655 7,768 Ancillary cost of operations (9,518 ) (8,914 ) Depreciation and amortization (86,938 ) (88,511 ) General and administrative expense (16,405 ) (14,235 ) Interest expense (5,334 ) (6,984 ) Equity in earnings of unconsolidated real estate entities 9,115 13,716 Foreign currency exchange gain 12,157 31,252 Gain on disposition of real estate investments - 198 Discontinued operations   -     (318 ) Net income $ 206,722   $ 210,568     (a)     We consolidate the operating results of 107 additional self-storage facilities that are not Same Store Facilities.
