MALVERN, Pa., Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CubeSmart (NYSE: CUBE) today announced its operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.

“The rental season got off to a solid start, generating strong performance through the second quarter as all aspects of the operating platform worked effectively to maximize cash flows,” commented President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher P.

EPS attributable to the Company's common shareholders was $0.26 for the second quarter of 2022, compared with $0.24 for the same period last year.

Investment Activity

Acquisition Activity

During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company acquired one wholly-owned store in Texas for $23.0 million. Subsequent to June 30, 2022, the Company acquired one wholly-owned store in Georgia for $20.7 million. In total for the year through the date of this press release, the Company has acquired three stores for $75.7 million.

Development Activity

The Company has agreements with developers for the construction of self-storage properties in high-barrier-to-entry locations. During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company opened for operation one development project in Virginia for a total cost of $21.8 million. The project is in close proximity to an existing store and has been combined with the existing store in our store count, as well as for operational and reporting purposes.

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had two joint venture development properties under construction. The Company anticipates investing a total of $78.0 million related to these projects and had invested $37.7 million of that total as of June 30, 2022. Both stores are located in New York and are expected to open at various times between the third quarter of 2022 and the fourth quarter of 2023.

Unconsolidated Real Estate Venture Activity

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company's joint venture, HVP V, acquired a property located in New Jersey for $33.2 million.

Third-Party Management

As of June 30, 2022, the Company's third-party management platform included 680 stores totaling 45.9 million rentable square feet. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company added 35 stores and 68 stores, respectively, to its third-party management platform.

Same-Store Results

The Company's same-store portfolio at June 30, 2022 included 523 stores containing approximately million rentable square feet, or approximately of the aggregate rentable square feet of the Company's 609 consolidated stores. These same-store properties represented approximately of property NOI for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

Same-store physical occupancy as of June 30, 2022 and 2021 was 95.3% and 96.0%, respectively. Same-store revenues for the second quarter of 2022 increased 14.0% and same-store operating expenses increased 2.5% from the same quarter in 2021. Same-store NOI increased 19.0% from the second quarter of 2021 to the second quarter of 2022.

Operating Results

As of June 30, 2022, the Company's total consolidated portfolio included 609 stores containing 43.9 million rentable square feet and had physical occupancy of 93.6%.

Revenues increased $49.4 million and property operating expenses increased $9.7 million in the second quarter of 2022, as compared to the same period in 2021. Increases in revenues were primarily attributable to increased rental rates on our same-store portfolio as well as revenues generated from property acquisitions and recently opened development properties. Increases in property operating expenses were primarily attributable to a $7.1 million increase from stores acquired or opened in 2021 and 2022 included in our non-same store portfolio as well as increases in expenses from same-store properties primarily related to property taxes.

Interest expense increased from $19.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021 to $23.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $4.0 million. The increase was attributable to a higher amount of outstanding debt that was used to fund a portion of the Company's growth. This increase was partially offset by lower interest rates during the 2022 period. The average outstanding debt balance was $3.16 billion during the three months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to $2.25 billion during the three months ended June 30, 2021. The weighted average effective interest rate on our outstanding debt for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 was 2.91% and 3.41%, respectively.

Financing Activity

During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company did not sell any common shares of beneficial interest through its at-the-market (“ATM”) equity program. As of June 30, 2022, the Company had 5.9 million shares available for issuance under the existing equity distribution agreements.

Quarterly Dividend

On May 17, 2022, the Company declared a quarterly dividend of $0.43 per common share. The dividend was paid on July 15, 2022 to common shareholders of record on July 1, 2022.

2022 Financial Outlook

“Strong second quarter results have further improved our outlook for the balance of 2022 which is reflected in the increases to our same store and FFO guidance ranges,” commented Chief Financial Officer Tim Martin.“Our investment-grade balance sheet is well positioned in this volatile interest rate environment, with 94.6% of our debt fixed and no major debt maturities until 2024.”

The Company estimates that its fully diluted earnings per share for the year will be between $1.05 and $1.09 (previously $0.95 to $1.00), and that its fully diluted FFO per share, as adjusted, for 2022 will be between $2.47 and $2.51 (previously $2.37 to $2.42). Due to uncertainty related to the timing and terms of transactions, the impact of any potential future speculative investment activity is excluded from guidance. For 2022, the same-store pool consists of 523 properties totaling 37.0 million rentable square feet.

About CubeSmart

CubeSmart is a self-administered and self-managed real estate investment trust. The Company's self-storage properties are designed to offer affordable, easily accessible and, in most locations, climate-controlled storage space for residential and commercial customers. According to the 2022 Self-Storage Almanac, CubeSmart is one of the top three owners and operators of self-storage properties in the United States.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds from operations (“FFO”) is a widely used performance measure for real estate companies and is provided here as a supplemental measure of operating performance. The April 2002 National Policy Bulletin of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (the“White Paper”), as amended, defines FFO as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of real estate and related impairment charges, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

Management uses FFO as a key performance indicator in evaluating the operations of the Company's stores. Given the nature of its business as a real estate owner and operator, the Company considers FFO a key measure of its operating performance that is not specifically defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The Company believes that FFO is useful to management and investors as a starting point in measuring its operational performance because FFO excludes various items included in net income that do not relate to or are not indicative of its operating performance such as gains (or losses) from sales of real estate, gains from remeasurement of investments in real estate ventures, impairments of depreciable assets, and depreciation, which can make periodic and peer analyses of operating performance more difficult. The Company's computation of FFO may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs or real estate companies.

FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indication of the Company's performance. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP and is not a measure of liquidity or an indicator of the Company's ability to make cash distributions. The Company believes that to further understand its performance, FFO should be compared with its reported net income and considered in addition to cash flows computed in accordance with GAAP, as presented in its Consolidated Financial Statements.

FFO, as adjusted represents FFO as defined above, excluding the effects of acquisition related costs, gains or losses from early extinguishment of debt, and other non-recurring items, which the Company believes are not indicative of the Company's operating results.

The Company defines net operating income, which it refers to as“NOI,” as total continuing revenues less continuing property operating expenses. NOI also can be calculated by adding back to net income (loss): interest expense on loans, loan procurement amortization expense, loss on early extinguishment of debt, acquisition related costs, equity in losses of real estate ventures, other expense, depreciation and amortization expense, general and administrative expense, and deducting from net income (loss): equity in earnings of real estate ventures, gains from sales of real estate, net, other income, gains from remeasurement of investments in real estate ventures and interest income. NOI is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Management uses NOI as a measure of operating performance at each of its stores, and for all of its stores in the aggregate. NOI should not be considered as a substitute for net income, cash flows provided by operating, investing and financing activities, or other income statement or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes NOI is useful to investors in evaluating operating performance because it is one of the primary measures used by management and store managers to evaluate the economic productivity of the Company's stores, including the ability to lease stores, increase pricing and occupancy, and control property operating expenses. Additionally, NOI helps the Company's investors meaningfully compare the results of its operating performance from period to period by removing the impact of its capital structure (primarily interest expense on outstanding indebtedness) and depreciation of the basis in its assets from operating results.
