National Storage Affiliates Trust Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results

National Storage Affiliates Trust (“NSA” or the "Company") (NYSE: NSA) today reported the Company’s second quarter 2019 results.

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Reported net income of $17.7 million for the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 36.0% compared to the second quarter of 2018. Reported loss per share of $0.19 for the second quarter of 2019, primarily relating to the HLBV method for allocating net income among the various classes of equity.
  • Reported core funds from operations ("Core FFO") of $34.3 million, or $0.38 per share for the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 11.8% per share compared to the second quarter of 2018.
  • Achieved same store net operating income ("NOI") growth of 5.5% for the second quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018, driven by a 4.7% increase in same store total revenues and a 2.8% increase in same store property operating expenses.
  • Acquired 24 wholly-owned self storage properties for $185.3 million during the second quarter of 2019. Consideration for these acquisitions included the issuance of approximately $15.5 million of OP equity.
  • Received approximately $116 million of gross proceeds from the sale of 2.4 million Common Shares of Beneficial Interest ("common shares") and 1.8 million 6.000% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares of Beneficial Interest ("Series A preferred shares") under the Company's at the market (“ATM”) program during the second quarter of 2019.
  • Entered into an agreement with a lender for a $100 million term loan which matures in ten years and has an effective interest rate of 4.27%, after taking into account the effect of interest rate swaps for the term of the loan.
  • Increased the second quarter 2019 dividend to $0.32 per common share, which is the eighth common share dividend increase since the Company’s IPO in the second quarter of 2015.
  • Announced an executive management transition whereby the Company's Board of Trustees has elevated Arlen Nordhagen, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and founder, to Executive Chairman and Tamara Fischer will be appointed Chief Executive Officer, in addition to her current role as President, effective January 1, 2020. It is expected that she will join the Board of Trustees on the same date. The Board further announced the appointment of Brandon Togashi to Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer effective January 1, 2020.

Highlights Subsequent to the End of the Second Quarter

  • Entered into an agreement to issue $100.0 million of 3.98% senior unsecured notes due August 30, 2029 and $50.0 million of 4.08% senior unsecured notes due August 30, 2031 in a private placement.
  • Entered into an agreement with lenders to extend maturities and increase the total borrowing capacity under the Company's credit facility by $255.0 million for a total credit facility of $1.275 billion.

Arlen Nordhagen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased with our 2019 results to-date, which demonstrate the benefits of our PRO platform and distinguish NSA from our peers. The robust 5.5% same store NOI growth in the second quarter combined with the healthy acquisition volume of approximately $185 million drove another double digit quarterly increase in Core FFO per share."

Tamara Fischer, President and Chief Financial Officer, added, "We've taken a number of steps recently to further strengthen our balance sheet, which position us well for future acquisition opportunities. Specifically, since quarter-end, we amended our credit facility, increasing our borrowing capacity, extending the maturities, and enhancing the terms in line with the current market. We also priced our inaugural private placement in the debt capital markets, a $150 million transaction that will close in the third quarter and further extend our average debt maturity. After giving effect to these transactions, our $500 million line of credit will be undrawn and available to fund our external growth strategy."

Ms. Fischer continued, "We're especially encouraged by our results during the first half of 2019. Accordingly, we've increased our full-year 2019 guidance for Core FFO per share and same store growth assumptions."

Non-GAAP financial measures, including FFO, Core FFO and NOI, are defined in the Glossary in the supplemental financial information and, where appropriate, reconciliations of these measures and other non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the Schedules to this press release and in the supplemental financial information.

Net income increased $4.7 million for the second quarter of 2019 and increased $5.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 ("year-to-date") as compared to the same periods in 2018. These increases were the result of additional NOI generated primarily from 76 wholly-owned self storage properties acquired between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019, same store NOI growth and gain on sale of self storage properties, partially offset by increases in interest expense, depreciation and amortization, general and administrative expenses and GAAP losses from the Company's unconsolidated real estate ventures.

The increases in FFO and Core FFO for the second quarter of 2019 and year-to-date were primarily the result of incremental NOI from properties acquired between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019, same store NOI growth, and incremental FFO from the Company's unconsolidated real estate ventures, partially offset by higher interest expense, general and administrative expenses and increases in distributions to subordinated performance unitholders.

Year-over-year same store total revenues increased 4.7% for the second quarter of 2019 and year-to-date as compared to the same periods in 2018. The increases were driven primarily by a 3.8% increase in average annualized rental revenue per occupied square foot for the second quarter of 2019 and a 4.0% increase in average annualized rental revenue per occupied square foot year-to-date combined with a 40 basis point increase in average occupancy in both periods. Markets that generated above portfolio average same store total revenue growth include: Atlanta, Indianapolis, and Las Vegas. Markets that generated below portfolio average same store total revenue growth include: Portland, Dallas and Phoenix.

Year-over-year same store property operating expenses increased 2.8% for the second quarter of 2019 and 1.8% year-to-date as compared to the same periods in 2018. These increases primarily resulted from increases in property taxes and repairs and maintenance expenses partially offset by decreases in insurance costs.

Investment Activity

NSA acquired 24 wholly-owned self storage properties located across eight states consisting of approximately 1.8 million rentable square feet configured in approximately 12,300 storage units during the second quarter of 2019. Total consideration for these acquisitions of $185.3 million included approximately $168.4 million of net cash, the issuance of approximately $4.7 million of OP units, $6.2 million of subordinated performance units, $4.6 million of Series A-1 preferred units and the assumption of approximately $1.4 million of other working capital liabilities.

Balance Sheet

During the second quarter of 2019, NSA entered into an agreement with a lender for a $100 million unsecured term loan. The term loan matures in ten years and has an effective interest rate of 4.27%, after taking into account the effect of interest rate swaps for the term of the loan. NSA used the proceeds from the term loan to repay outstanding amounts under its revolving line of credit.

During the second quarter of 2019, NSA issued 2,375,000 common shares at an average offering price of $30.06 per share and 1,785,680 Series A preferred shares at an average offering price of $24.84 per share under the Company's ATM program for gross proceeds of approximately $116 million. NSA used the proceeds from the issuances to repay outstanding amounts under its revolving line of credit.

On July 29, 2019, NSA entered into agreements with a syndicated group of lenders to amend its credit facility, increasing the total capacity by $255.0 million for a total credit facility of $1.275 billion (the "amended credit facility"), which included an additional $100 million of revolving line of credit capacity and $155.0 million of additional term loan borrowings. The agreement also reduced the spread for the revolving line of credit by 10 basis points and the weighted average interest rate of the credit facility's term loan borrowings by 7 basis points, after taking into account the effect of interest rate swaps.

The Company's amended credit facility consists of the following components: (i) a revolving line of credit that matures in January 2024 that provides for a total borrowing commitment up to $500.0 million, (ii) a $125.0 million Term Loan A that matures in January 2023, (iii) a $250.0 million Term Loan B that matures in July 2024, (iv) a $225.0 million Term Loan C that matures in January 2025, and (v) a $175.0 million Term Loan D that matures in July 2026. The Company has an expansion option under the credit facility, which if exercised in full, would provide for a total borrowing capacity under the credit facility of $1.750 billion. Additional details of the amended credit facility will be provided in the Company's second quarter Form 10-Q.

On July 30, 2019, the Company's operating partnership entered into an agreement to issue $100.0 million of 3.98% senior unsecured notes due August 30, 2029 and $50.0 million of 4.08% senior unsecured notes due August 30, 2031 (the "Senior Unsecured Notes") in a private placement to certain institutional accredited investors. The funding of the Senior Unsecured Notes is expected to occur on August 30, 2019, subject to customary closing conditions.

Investment Grade Rating

During the second quarter of 2019, Kroll Bond Rating Agency ("KBRA") assigned an issuer rating of BBB with Stable Outlook to NSA OP, LP, NSA's operating partnership. KBRA has also assigned a BBB- rating to the Company’s outstanding Series A preferred shares. Subsequent to the end of the second quarter, KBRA assigned a rating of BBB with Stable Outlook to NSA's Senior Unsecured Notes.

Common Share Dividends

On May 22, 2019, NSA's Board of Trustees declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.32 per common share, which was paid on June 28, 2019 to shareholders of record as of June 14, 2019. The second quarter 2019 dividend represents an annualized dividend rate of $1.28, a 10.3% increase from the second quarter 2018 dividend rate and a 6.7% increase from the first quarter 2019 dividend rate.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures & Glossary

This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures are presented because NSA's management believes these measures help investors understand NSA's business, performance and ability to earn and distribute cash to its shareholders by providing perspectives not immediately apparent from net income (loss).

In addition, NSA's method of calculating these measures may be different from methods used by other companies, and, accordingly, may not be comparable to similar measures as calculated by other companies that do not use the same methodology as NSA. These measures, and other words and phrases used herein, are defined in the Glossary in the supplemental financial information and, where appropriate, reconciliations of these measures and other non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the Schedules to this press release and in the supplemental financial information.

Amounts represent distributions declared for subordinated performance unitholders and DownREIT subordinated performance unitholders for the periods presented.

(2)

NSA combines OP units and DownREIT OP units with common shares because, after the applicable lock-out periods, OP units in the Company's operating partnership are redeemable for cash or, at NSA's option, exchangeable for common shares on a one-for-one basis and DownREIT OP units are also redeemable for cash or, at NSA's option, exchangeable for OP units in the Company's operating partnership on a one-for-one basis, subject to certain adjustments in each case. Subordinated performance units, DownREIT subordinated performance units and LTIP units may also, under certain circumstances, be convertible into or exchangeable for common shares (or other units that are convertible into or exchangeable for common shares). See footnote(3) for additional discussion of subordinated performance units, DownREIT subordinated performance units, and LTIP units in the calculation of FFO and Core FFO per share and unit.

(1)

Adjustment accounts for the difference between the weighted average number of shares used to calculate diluted earnings per share and the weighted average number of shares used to calculate FFO and Core FFO per share and unit. Diluted earnings per share is calculated using the two-class method for the company's restricted common shares and the treasury stock method for certain unvested LTIP units, and assumes the conversion of vested LTIP units into OP units on a one-for-one basis and the hypothetical conversion of subordinated performance units, and DownREIT subordinated performance units into OP units, even though such units may only be convertible into OP units (i) after a lock-out period and (ii) upon certain events or conditions. For additional information about the conversion of subordinated performance units and DownREIT subordinated performance units into OP units, see Note 10 to the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The computation of weighted average shares and units for FFO and Core FFO per share and unit includes all restricted common shares and LTIP units that participate in distributions and excludes all subordinated performance units and DownREIT subordinated performance units because their effect has been accounted for through the allocation of FFO to the related unitholders based on distributions declared.

(2)

Represents the effect of adjusting the numerator to consolidated net income (loss) prior to GAAP allocations for noncontrolling interests, after deducting preferred share and unit distributions, and before the application of the two-class method and treasury stock method, as described in footnote(3).
