Public Storage Reports Results For The Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2012

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

Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2012

For the three months ended June 30, 2012, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $132.3 million compared to $131.5 million for the same period in 2011. Diluted earnings per common share was flat at $0.77 for each period, as improved property operations and reduced income allocations to our preferred shareholders were offset by a $34.2 million reduction in income caused by 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.

Revenues for the Same Store Facilities (see table below) increased 5.1% or $19.2 million in the quarter ended June 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 declined by 1.4% or $1.7 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011. Net operating income for our Same Store Facilities increased 8.3% or $20.9 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011. Net operating income for our non-Same Store facilities increased $4.9 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011.

Operating Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2012

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $257.7 million or $1.50 per diluted common share, compared to $279.6 million or $1.64 per diluted common share for the same period in 2011, representing a decrease of $21.9 million or $0.14 per diluted common share. This decrease is due to (i) a $53.2 million reduction in income caused by 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) a $31.0 million reduction in income allocated to common shareholders, in connection with applying EITF D-42 to preferred equity redemptions, offset partially by (iii) improved property operations and (iv) reduced income allocations to our preferred shareholders based upon distributions paid.
