Public Storage (NYSE:PSA) announced today operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Operating Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2016

For the three months ended September 30, 2016, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $309.0 million or $1.78 per diluted common share, compared to $273.5 million or $1.58 in 2015 representing an increase of $35.5 million or $0.20. The increase is primarily due to (i) a $28.3 million increase in self-storage net operating income (described below) and (ii) an $8.0 million decrease in income allocated to preferred shareholders.

The $28.3 million increase in self-storage net operating income is a result of an $18.1 million increase in our Same Store Facilities (as defined below) and a $10.2 million increase in our Non Same Store Facilities (as defined below). Revenues for the Same Store Facilities increased 5.1% or $26.6 million in the three months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to 2015, due primarily to higher realized annual rent per occupied square foot. Cost of operations for the Same Store Facilities increased by 6.4% or $8.5 million in the three months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to 2015, due primarily to increased property taxes, on-site property manager payroll, and allocated overhead. The increase in net operating income for the Non Same Store Facilities is due primarily to the impact of 308 self-storage facilities acquired, developed or expanded since January 2013.

Operating Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, net income allocable to our common shareholders was $831.1 million or $4.78 per diluted common share, compared to $750.0 million or $4.32 in 2015 representing an increase of $81.1 million or $0.46. The increase is primarily due to (i) a $107.1 million increase in self-storage net operating income offset partially by (ii) an $18.0 million increase in allocation to our preferred shareholders as a result of redemption activities and (iii) a $28.1 million reduction in gains on sales of real estate investments, including our equity share.

The $107.1 million increase in self-storage net operating income is a result of a $76.3 million increase in our Same Store Facilities and a $30.8 million increase in our Non Same Store Facilities. Revenues for the Same Store Facilities increased 5.8% or $86.5 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to 2015, due primarily to higher realized annual rent per occupied square foot. Cost of operations for the Same Store Facilities increased by 2.5% or $10.2 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 as compared to 2015, due primarily to increased property taxes, on-site property manager payroll and repairs and maintenance, offset partially by lower snow removal costs. The increase in net operating income for the Non Same Store Facilities is due primarily to the impact of 308 self-storage facilities acquired, developed or expanded since January 2013.

Funds from Operations

For the three months ended September 30, 2016, funds from operations ("FFO") was $2.51 per diluted common share, as compared to $2.27 in 2015, representing an increase of 10.6%. 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.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, FFO was $6.94 per diluted common share, as compared to $6.33 in 2015, representing an increase of 9.6%.

We also present "Core FFO per share," a non-GAAP measure that represents FFO per share excluding the impact of (i) foreign currency exchange gains and losses, (ii) EITF D-42 charges related to the redemption of preferred securities, (iii) general and administrative expenses associated with the acquisition of self-storage facilities and (iv) certain other non-cash and/or nonrecurring income or expense items. We review Core FFO per share to evaluate our ongoing operating performance, and we believe it is used by investors and REIT analysts in a similar manner. However, Core FFO per share is not a substitute for net income per share. Because other REITs may not compute Core FFO per share in the same manner as we do, may not use the same terminology or may not present such a measure, Core FFO per share may not be comparable among REITs.

Property Operations - Same Store Facilities

The Same Store Facilities represent those facilities that have been owned and operated on a stabilized level of occupancy, revenues and cost of operations since January 1, 2014. We review the operations of our Same Store Facilities, which excludes facilities whose operating trends are significantly affected by factors such as facilities damaged by casualty events, as well as recently developed or acquired facilities, to more effectively evaluate the ongoing performance of our self-storage portfolio in 2014, 2015, and 2016. We believe the Same Store information is used by investors and analysts in a similar manner. The Same Store pool decreased from the 2,003 facilities at June 30, 2016 to 2,000 facilities at September 30, 2016, due primarily to casualty damage. The following table summarizes the historical operating results of these 2,000 facilities (127.2 million net rentable square feet) that represent approximately 84% of the aggregate net rentable square feet of our U.S. consolidated self-storage portfolio at September 30, 2016.

(c) Realized annual rent per occupied square foot is computed by dividing annualized rental income, before late charges and administrative fees, by the weighted average occupied square feet for the period. Realized annual rent per available square foot ("REVPAF") is computed by dividing annualized rental income, before late charges and administrative fees, by the total available rentable square feet for the period. These measures exclude late charges and administrative fees in order to provide a better measure of our ongoing level of revenue. Late charges are dependent upon the level of delinquency and administrative fees are dependent upon the level of move-ins. In addition, the rates charged for late charges and administrative fees can vary independently from rental rates. These measures take into consideration promotional discounts, which reduce rental income.
 
(d) Contract rent represents the applicable contractual monthly rent charged to our tenants, excluding the impact of promotional discounts, late charges and administrative fees.

(a)     FFO and FFO per share are non-GAAP measures defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts and, along with the non-GAAP measure FAD, are considered helpful measures of REIT performance by REITs and many REIT analysts. FFO represents net income before real estate depreciation, gains or losses and impairment charges, which are excluded because they are based upon historical real estate costs and assume that building values diminish ratably over time, while we believe that real estate values fluctuate due to market conditions. FAD represents FFO adjusted to exclude certain non-cash charges and to deduct capital expenditures. We utilize FAD in evaluating our ongoing cash flow available for investment, debt repayment, and common distributions. We believe investors and analysts utilize FAD in a similar manner. FFO and FFO per share are not a substitute for net income or earnings per share. FFO and FAD are not substitutes for GAAP net cash flow in evaluating our liquidity or ability to pay dividends, because they exclude investing and financing activities presented on our statements of cash flows. In addition, other REITs may compute these measures differently, so comparisons among REITs may not be helpful.

(a)     Net operating income or "NOI" is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of depreciation and amortization expense, which is based upon historical real estate costs and assumes that building values diminish ratably over time, while we believe that real estate values fluctuate due to market conditions. We utilize NOI in determining current property values, evaluating property performance, and in evaluating operating trends. We believe that investors and analysts utilize NOI in a similar manner. NOI is not a substitute for net income, net operating cash flow, or other related GAAP financial measures, in evaluating our operating results. This table reconciles from NOI for our self-storage facilities to the operating income presented on our income statement.
