Strategic Storage Trust II, Inc. (SST II) Reaches $50 Million Equity Mark; Can Now Receive Investments From Pennsylvania Residents

LADERA RANCH, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2015) - Strategic Storage Trust II, Inc. (SST II) -- a public non-traded REIT that focuses on stabilized self storage properties -- has raised more than $50 million in capital from investors across the United States and is now accepting investments from Pennsylvania residents. While most states require a relatively small amount of investor funds be held in escrow (e.g., $1.5 million), Pennsylvania has a formulaic escrow requirement based on the maximum offering amount, which resulted in a $50 million escrow for SST II. For this reason, SST II has not allowed investments by Pennsylvania residents in this offering until today.

"We are pleased to have reached the $50 million equity mark so that interested investors from Pennsylvania can now participate," said SST II chairman and CEO H. Michael Schwartz. "Self storage is a resilient and stable real estate asset class, and we are glad that we can now bring our offering to potential investors in Pennsylvania."

The current SST II portfolio includes approximately 17,000 self storage units and approximately 1.9 million rentable square feet of storage space.
