The newly purchased properties include six self storage facilities in Chicago, IL; four in Southwest Florida; three in Austin, TX; and one in Phoenix, AZ. The stores were acquired via six separate transactions and were funded through advances on the Company’s line of credit.

The properties total 960,000 square feet and complement the Company’s existing portfolio as all are located in markets in which the Company already has a presence. “We had a very busy December closing these transactions, and we are thrilled to bring 14 additional high quality stores into our fold,” said David Rogers, Chief Executive Officer. “We’re especially pleased to have increased our scale and visibility in the Chicago market.”

During 2012, the Company acquired a total of 28 stores for its own portfolio at a cost of $190 million. It also added 17 properties via its Uncle Bob’s Management platform.

Each of the storage facilities will be rebranded under the Uncle Bob’s Self Storage ® name and fully integrated into the Company’s operating platforms.
