GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- National Storage Affiliates Trust (“NSA” or the "Company") (NYSE: NSA) today reported the Company’s fourth quarter and full year 2019 results, and announced the internalization of the Company's largest participating regional operator ("PRO"), SecurCare Self Storage, Inc. ("SecurCare"), as well as the transition of the Company's Chief Operating Officer.

Fourth Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Reported net income of $18.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, an increase of 30.0% compared to the fourth quarter of 2018. Reported diluted earnings per share of $0.13 for the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily relating to the HLBV method for allocating net income among the various classes of equity.
  • Reported core funds from operations ("Core FFO") of $36.8 million, or $0.40 per share for the fourth quarter of 2019, an increase of 8.1% per share compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Achieved same store net operating income ("NOI") growth of 3.8% for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018, driven by a 2.8% increase in same store total revenues partially offset by a 0.3% increase in same store property operating expenses.
  • Acquired seven wholly-owned self storage properties for $32.2 million during the fourth quarter of 2019. Consideration for these acquisitions included the issuance of approximately $2.0 million of OP equity.

Full Year 2019 Highlights

  • Reported Core FFO of $140.5 million, or $1.54 per share for full year 2019, an increase of 11.6% per share compared to full year 2018.
  • Achieved same store NOI growth of 5.0% for full year 2019 compared to the same period in 2018, driven by a 4.0% increase in same store total revenues partially offset by a 1.6% increase in same store property operating expenses.
  • Acquired 69 wholly-owned self storage properties for $447.8 million during full year 2019. Consideration for these acquisitions included the issuance of approximately $51.8 million of OP equity.

Highlights Subsequent to Year-End

  • NSA has entered into a definitive agreement with SecurCare, the Company’s largest PRO, to acquire SecurCare in a merger and internalize its property management platform, which is expected to close during the second quarter of 2020, subject to customary closing conditions. As part of the internalization, NSA intends to offer employment to most of SecurCare's employees, including its key persons, to continue managing SecurCare's managed portfolio as members of NSA's property management platform. As a result of the merger, NSA will no longer pay any fees or reimbursements to SecurCare and distributions on the series of subordinated performance units related to SecurCare's managed portfolio will be discontinued. Further details regarding these transactions are contained in NSA's current report on Form 8-K, filed today with the SEC.
  • In connection with the internalization of SecurCare, the Company's Board of Trustees approved the appointment of David Cramer, who is currently the president and chief executive officer of SecurCare, as NSA's Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President, with an expected effective date at or around the closing of the SecurCare merger, and accepted the resignation of Steven B. Treadwell from the same positions, to pursue other interests, effective at or around the same time. Mr. Nordhagen will continue to serve the Company in his capacity as executive chairman.
  • NSA acquired 34 wholly-owned self storage properties for approximately $205.8 million and two joint venture properties totaling approximately $12.1 million.

Arlen Nordhagen, Executive Chairman of the Board of Trustees, commented, "As 2020 begins, we enter a transformational year for NSA. When we formed the Company in 2013, we envisioned a differentiated public self storage REIT that would leverage the benefits of integrating multiple experienced regional self storage operators to deliver consistently outstanding results to our shareholders. With the announcement of the internalization of SecurCare, we are excited to take the next step in the evolution of NSA and demonstrate that our unique structure can continue to build on the foundation of the stellar execution of our internal and external growth strategies since our IPO in 2015."

Mr. Nordhagen continued, "While we are sorry to see Steve Treadwell leave NSA to pursue an entrepreneurial opportunity, it is fortuitous that the timing of his departure coincides with the internalization of SecurCare so that Dave Cramer can immediately step into the role of COO. Dave and I have worked closely together for over 20 years, and Dave's wealth of knowledge and experience in the self storage industry will provide for a seamless transition during this next phase of the Company's growth."

Tamara Fischer, President and Chief Executive Officer, added, "We are very proud of what we accomplished during 2019, with a double digit increase in Core FFO per share driven by operating results that exceeded our expectations. As we look ahead to 2020, the expected accretion from the internalization of SecurCare is the realization of one of the key benefits of NSA's PRO structure. I look forward to working with Dave in his new role and continuing NSA's success."

Net income increased $4.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 and $9.7 million for full year 2019 as compared to the same periods in 2018. The increases primarily resulted from additional NOI generated from the 69 wholly-owned self storage properties acquired during full year 2019 and same store NOI growth, partially offset by increases in depreciation and amortization and interest expense.

The increases in FFO and Core FFO for the fourth quarter of 2019 and full year 2019 were primarily the result of incremental NOI from properties acquired during full year 2019 and same store NOI growth, partially offset by higher interest expense and increases in distributions to subordinated performance unitholders.

Year-over-year same store total revenues increased 2.8% for the fourth quarter of 2019 and 4.0% for full year 2019 as compared to the same periods in 2018. The increases were driven primarily by a 2.6% increase in average annualized rental revenue per occupied square foot for the fourth quarter of 2019 and a 3.5% increase in average annualized rental revenue per occupied square foot for full year 2019. Markets that generated above portfolio average same store total revenue growth include: Riverside-San Bernardino, Atlanta, and Las Vegas. Markets that generated below portfolio average same store total revenue growth include: Portland, Dallas and Tulsa.

Year-over-year same store property operating expenses increased 0.3% for the fourth quarter of 2019 and 1.6% for full year 2019 as compared to the same periods in 2018. For the fourth quarter of 2019, the increase primarily resulted from increases in personnel costs, general and administrative expenses and advertising costs, substantially offset by decreases in property taxes. The decreases in property taxes resulted primarily from unexpected favorable property tax assessments recorded during the fourth quarter of 2019. For full year 2019, the increase primarily resulted from increases in repairs and maintenance expenses, personnel costs and property taxes.

Investment Activity

NSA acquired seven wholly-owned self storage properties located across three states consisting of approximately 0.3 million rentable square feet configured in approximately 2,500 storage units during the fourth quarter of 2019. Total consideration for these acquisitions of $32.2 million included approximately $30.0 million of net cash, the issuance of approximately $0.2 million of OP units, $1.8 million of subordinated performance units and the assumption of approximately $0.2 million of other working capital liabilities.

During the full year 2019, NSA invested $447.8 million in the acquisition of 69 wholly-owned self storage properties located across 14 states consisting of approximately 4.2 million rentable square feet configured in approximately 33,000 storage units.

Common Share Dividends

On November 20, 2019, NSA's Board of Trustees declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.33 per common share, which was paid on December 31, 2019 to shareholders of record as of December 13, 2019.

2020 Guidance

The Company's outlook for 2020 incorporates the effect of the SecurCare internalization assuming an effective date of April 1, 2020, which is expected to be accretive to Core FFO per share by approximately $0.03 in 2020, or $0.04 - $0.05 on an annualized basis.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures & Glossary

This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures are presented because NSA's management believes these measures help investors understand NSA's business, performance and ability to earn and distribute cash to its shareholders by providing perspectives not immediately apparent from net income (loss). These measures are also frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties. The presentations of FFO, Core FFO and NOI in this press release are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, NSA's method of calculating these measures may be different from methods used by other companies, and, accordingly, may not be comparable to similar measures as calculated by other companies that do not use the same methodology as NSA. These measures, and other words and phrases used herein, are defined in the Glossary in the supplemental financial information and, where appropriate, reconciliations of these measures and other non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the Schedules to this press release and in the supplemental financial information.

NSA combines OP units and DownREIT OP units with common shares because, after the applicable lock-out periods, OP units in the Company's operating partnership are redeemable for cash or, at NSA's option, exchangeable for common shares on a one-for-one basis and DownREIT OP units are also redeemable for cash or, at NSA's option, exchangeable for OP units in the Company's operating partnership on a one-for-one basis, subject to certain adjustments in each case. Subordinated performance units, DownREIT subordinated performance units and LTIP units may also, under certain circumstances, be convertible into or exchangeable for common shares (or other units that are convertible into or exchangeable for common shares). See footnote(3) for additional discussion of subordinated performance units, DownREIT subordinated performance units, and LTIP units in the calculation of FFO and Core FFO per share and unit.

Adjustment accounts for the difference between the weighted average number of shares used to calculate diluted earnings per share and the weighted average number of shares used to calculate FFO and Core FFO per share and unit. Diluted earnings per share is calculated using the two-class method for the company's restricted common shares and the treasury stock method for certain unvested LTIP units, and assumes the conversion of vested LTIP units into OP units on a one-for-one basis and the hypothetical conversion of subordinated performance units, and DownREIT subordinated performance units into OP units, even though such units may only be convertible into OP units (i) after a lock-out period and (ii) upon certain events or conditions. For additional information about the conversion of subordinated performance units and DownREIT subordinated performance units into OP units, see Note 10 to the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The computation of weighted average shares and units for FFO and Core FFO per share and unit includes all restricted common shares and LTIP units that participate in distributions and excludes all subordinated performance units and DownREIT subordinated performance units because their effect has been accounted for through the allocation of FFO to the related unitholders based on distributions declared.

(4)

Represents the effect of adjusting the numerator to consolidated net income (loss) prior to GAAP allocations for noncontrolling interests, after deducting preferred share and unit distributions, and before the application of the two-class method and treasury stock method, as described in footnote(3).
