Public Storage Reports Results For The Quarter Ended March 31, 2014

Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) announced today operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Operating Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2014

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $174.1 million or $1.01 per diluted common share, compared to $161.9 million or $0.94 per diluted common share for the same period in 2013, representing an increase of $12.2 million or $0.07 per diluted common share. This increase is due primarily to a $30.8 million increase in self-storage net operating income, offset partially by an $18.0 million increase in depreciation and amortization associated with acquired real estate facilities.

Our self-storage net operating income increased $30.8 million in the three months ended March 31, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013, including $16.0 million for our Same Store Facilities and $14.8 million for our non-Same Store Facilities. Revenues for the Same Store Facilities increased 5.1% or $21.3 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013, due to higher realized annual rent per occupied square foot and higher average occupancy. Cost of operations for the Same Store Facilities increased by 4.0% or $5.3 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013, due primarily to weather related increases in snow removal and utilities expense and increased property tax expense, offset partially by lower advertising and selling costs. The increase in net operating income for the non-Same Store Facilities is due primarily to the impact of the acquisition of 121 self-storage facilities from third parties since January 1, 2013.

Funds from Operations

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, funds from operations (“FFO”) was $1.74 per diluted common share, as compared to $1.57 for the same period in 2013, representing an increase of $0.17 per share. FFO is a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) term defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts and generally represents net income before depreciation, gains and losses and impairment charges with respect to real estate assets.
