U-Store-It Same-Store Revenue Grows 3.2%; Reports Fourth Quarter and Annual 2010 Results; Provides 2011 Earnings Guidance

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2011) - U-Store-It Trust (NYSE: YSI) announced its operating results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2010.

U-Store-It Chief Executive Officer Dean Jernigan said, "We are pleased with our overall performance in 2010 as challenging economic conditions allowed us to demonstrate the strength of our operating platform and the resiliency of the storage sector. We ended 2010 with two consecutive quarters of same-store portfolio growth over prior year levels in key operating metrics including revenue, occupancy and net operating income."

"The year was also highlighted by strong execution in our acquisition and disposition efforts. We invested $87.1 million through the acquisition of 12 class A facilities in our core growth markets and raised $38.1 million through the disposition of 16 properties in lower barrier to entry markets," continued Mr. Jernigan. "We expect to continue this momentum into 2011 as our strategic objectives are to grow our cash flow by increasing same-store net operating income, continue to improve the quality of our portfolio through acquisitions in targeted growth markets and selective dispositions, and to position our balance sheet for an investment grade credit rating."

"We expect both our owned property portfolio and our third party management platform to benefit from this consolidation."

Funds from Operations

FFO for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $15.6 million, compared to $12.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. FFO per share was $0.15 per share for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to $0.13 per share for the same quarter of last year. Weighted average common shares and operating partnership units outstanding were 102.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to 98.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2009.

FFO for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $51.1 million or $0.51 per share, compared to $55.9 million or $0.73 per share for the year ended December 31, 2009. Weighted average common shares and operating partnership units outstanding were 100.0 million for 2010 compared to 76.6 million for 2009.

Operating Results

The Company reported net income attributable to the Company of $2.1 million or $0.02 per common share in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to a net loss attributable to the Company of $2.8 million or $0.03 per common share in the fourth quarter of 2009. Total revenues increased $4.8 million and total property operating expenses increased $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to the same period in 2009. Increases in total revenues are attributable to increased occupancy levels in the same-store portfolio and increased revenues generated from our third-party management business during the 2010 period. Increases in total property operating expenses are attributable to the impact of newly acquired properties and increases in expenses related to real estate taxes and property insurance, offset by decreases in expenses related to personnel, utilities and repairs and maintenance of our properties.

For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported net loss attributable to the Company of $7.4 million or $0.08 per share, compared to a net loss attributable to the Company of $0.9 million or $0.01 per share for the year ended December 31, 2009. Total revenues increased $6.1 million and total property operating expenses increased $2.3 million during 2010, compared to 2009. Increases in total revenues are attributable to additional income from the 2010 acquisitions and increased revenues generated from our third-party management business during 2010. Increases in total property operating expenses are attributable to the impact of newly acquired properties, additional costs incurred to support the growth of the third party management business and increases in expenses related to property insurance and advertising, offset by decreases in expenses related to personnel, utilities and repairs and maintenance of our properties.

Interest expense decreased approximately $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily resulting from lower debt levels in the 2010 period from the repayment of $196.2 million of loans during 2010, as well as lower interest rates on the credit facility during the fourth quarter of 2010 as compared to the same period in 2009. Interest expense decreased from $45.3 million in 2009 to $37.8 million in 2010 due to reduced interest expense related to mortgage loan repayments, reduced average outstanding credit facility borrowings and lower interest rates during 2010 as compared to 2009.

Loan procurement amortization expense increased approximately $0.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to the fourth quarter of 2009, due to loan procurement cost amortization associated with the $450 million secured credit facility that closed in December of 2009 and the subsequent amendment of the facility to unsecured in September 2010. Loan procurement amortization expense increased from $2.3 million in 2009 to $6.5 million in 2010, primarily resulting from the amortization of additional costs incurred in relation to the amendment of the credit facility in 2010, a full year of amortization of costs related to the credit facility and the 17 secured financings entered into in 2009.

The Company's 363 owned facilities, containing 23.6 million rentable square feet, had a physical occupancy at December 31, 2010 of 76.3% and an average physical occupancy for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2010 of 76.5%.

Same-Store Results

The Company's same-store pool at December 31, 2010 represented 348 facilities containing approximately 22.7 million rentable square feet and included approximately 95.0% of the aggregate rentable square feet of the Company's 363 owned facilities. These same-store facilities represent approximately 96.7% of property net operating income for the quarter ended December 31, 2010.

The same-store average physical occupancy for the fourth quarter of 2010 was 76.9% compared to 75.8% for the same quarter of last year. Same-store net rental income for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased 2.5% over the same period in 2009. Same-store total revenues increased 3.2% and same-store operating expenses increased 1.8% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2009. Same-store net operating income increased 4.1% in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to the same quarter of 2009.

For the year ended December 31, 2010, same-store total revenues, and net operating income increased 0.3%, and 1.0%, respectively, and operating expenses decreased 0.8% as compared to the results for the year ended December 31, 2009. Average physical occupancy of the same-store pool for 2010 was 76.8% as compared to 76.2% during 2009. Ending occupancy for our same-store portfolio was 76.7% and 75.5% as of December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.

2010 Investment Activity

During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company acquired nine self-storage facilities for a total investment of approximately $53.9 million. The facilities contain approximately 542,000 net rentable square feet and are located in the Company's targeted markets of Boston, Massachusetts; Brooklyn and Queens, New York; Orlando, Florida; the Washington, D.C. suburbs of Manassas and Herndon, Virginia; and the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania suburbs of Cherry Hill, New Jersey and two facilities in Egg Harbor, New Jersey.

The Company acquired three self-storage facilities during the third quarter of 2010 located in Brooklyn and Bronx, New York and the Dallas suburb of Frisco, Texas, containing an aggregate 199,000 net rentable square feet for an investment of approximately $33.2 million.

During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company disposed of 16 unencumbered assets containing approximately 848,000 square feet for proceeds of approximately $38 million. Fourteen of the disposition assets were located in California's Inland Empire in the communities of Bloomington, Hemet, Highland, Redlands, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Yucaipa. Two of the assets were located in Fayetteville, North Carolina. These transactions represented all of the Company's 2010 disposition activity.

The Company funded the $87.1 million of 2010 acquisitions through a combination of approximately $48.4 million raised in 2010 through the use of our At-The-Market equity program, approximately $38.0 million of disposition proceeds, and $0.7 million of available free cash-flow.

Subsequent to year end, the Company acquired one facility located in Northern Virginia in January 2011 for a total investment of approximately $14.1 million.

Balance Sheet

On September 29, 2010, the Company announced the closing of an amendment to its $450 million credit facility. The amended credit facility consists of a $200 million unsecured term loan and a $250 million unsecured revolving credit facility. The amended credit facility has a three year term expiring on December 7, 2013. At year end, the $200 million term loan was outstanding and there was $43.0 million outstanding on the revolving credit facility.

The significant changes to the Company's previous $450 million secured credit facility are as follows:

  • The amended facility is an unsecured facility compared to the prior secured facility.
  • The amended facility pricing is based on 30 day Libor compared to a 1.50% Libor floor in the prior facility.
  • The amended facility matures in December, 2013 compared to December, 2012 in the prior facility.

During the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company repaid an $83.3 million CMBS loan that was scheduled to mature in May 2010, an $83.5 million loan that was scheduled to mature in January 2011, and $23.5 million of additional loans that had maturity dates in 2010.

Additionally, during the year, the Company was repaid $20.1 million in notes receivable related to seller financings the Company provided as part of property dispositions in 2009.

Quarterly Dividend

On December 14, 2010, the Company declared a dividend of $0.07 per share. The dividend was paid on January 21, 2011, to shareholders of record on January 7, 2011.

2011 Financial Outlook

"Our 2011 guidance was constructed with the expectation of continued high levels of unemployment and a gradual recovery in consumer confidence. Our expected EBITDA growth, along with financing our external growth on a leverage neutral basis are important components of our business plan as we remain focused on our goal of achieving an investment grade credit rating," said Tim Martin, U-Store-It Chief Financial Officer. "We expect to continue to capitalize on both internal and external growth opportunities in 2011. At the midpoint of our Funds from Operations guidance, we expect to deliver a very strong 16% growth over our reported 2010 results."

The Company estimates that its fully-diluted FFO per share for 2011 will be between $0.56 and $0.62, and that its fully-diluted net income per share for the period will be between $(0.05) and $0.01. The Company's estimate is based on the following key assumptions:

  • For 2011, the same-store pool consists of 363 assets totaling 23.5 million square feet
  • Same-store revenue growth of 2.5% to 3.5% over 2010
  • Same-store expense growth of 2.0% to 3.0% over 2010
  • Same-store net operating income growth of 2.5% to 3.5% over 2010
  • Average LIBOR of 0.5% during 2011
  • General and administrative expenses of approximately $25.5 million to $26.5 million

About U-Store-It Trust

U-Store-It Trust 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, U-Store-It Trust is one of the top four owners and operators of self-storage facilities in the United States.

Non-GAAP Performance Measurements

FFO is a widely used performance measure for real estate companies and is provided here as a supplemental measure of operating performance. The Company calculates FFO in accordance with the best practices described in the April 2002 National Policy Bulletin of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (the "White Paper"). The White Paper defines FFO as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

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 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, acquisition related costs, 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.
