Public Storage Reports Results For The Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2012

Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) announced today operating results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Operating Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2012

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $202.5 million or $1.18 per diluted common share compared to $118.0 million or $0.69 per diluted common share for the same period in 2011, representing an increase of $84.5 million or $0.49 per diluted common share. This increase is due to (i) a $37.3 million increase resulting from foreign currency exchange gains and losses incurred in translating the value of our Euro-denominated loan receivable from Shurgard Europe into a U.S. Dollar equivalent, (ii) improved property operations (see below), and (iii) reduced allocations of income to our preferred shareholders due primarily to lower average coupon rates and lower average outstanding preferred shares.

Revenues for the Same Store Facilities (see table below) increased 4.8% or $18.8 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011, primarily due to higher realized annual rent per occupied square foot. Cost of operations for the Same Store Facilities decreased by 2.3% or $2.8 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011 due primarily to lower repairs and maintenance and media advertising. Net operating income for our Same Store Facilities increased 7.9% or $21.6 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011. Net operating income for our non-Same Store facilities increased $5.2 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011.

Operating Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $460.2 million or $2.68 per diluted common share, compared to $397.5 million or $2.33 per diluted common share for the same period in 2011, representing an increase of $62.7 million or $0.35 per diluted common share. This increase is due to (i) improved property operations (see below) and (ii) a $16.7 million reduction in allocations of net income to preferred shareholders based upon distributions paid due to lower average coupon rates and lower average outstanding preferred shares, offset partially by (iii) a $27.8 million decrease in earnings due to the application of EITF D-42 to our and PSB’s redemptions of preferred securities, and (iv) a $16.0 million decrease due to foreign currency exchange gains and losses in translating our Euro-denominated loan receivable from Shurgard Europe into U.S. Dollars.
