The pending acquisitions include the purchase of a joint venture partner's interest in one of the Company's existing joint ventures that owns 21 self-storage properties in 11 states, resulting in full ownership of the joint venture by the Company, as well as the purchase of seven additional properties that are located in Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts and New Jersey. These pending acquisitions are subject to the completion of the Company's due diligence, the satisfaction of other closing conditions and, in the case of the acquisition of the joint venture partner's interest, the negotiation and execution of a definitive purchase agreement. The Company intends to close each of these acquisitions by December 31, 2012; however, there can be no assurances that these conditions will be satisfied or that the acquisitions will close on the terms described, or at all. An automatic shelf registration statement and preliminary prospectus supplement relating to these securities were previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
