National Storage Affiliates Trust Reports First Quarter 2022 Results

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.--()--National Storage Affiliates Trust ("NSA" or the "Company") (NYSE: NSA) today reported the Company’s first quarter 2022 results.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Reported net income of $44.8 million for the first quarter of 2022, an increase of 62.1% compared to the first quarter of 2021. Reported diluted earnings per share of $0.24 for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $0.19 for the first quarter of 2021.
  • Reported core funds from operations ("Core FFO") of $87.4 million, or $0.68 per share for the first quarter of 2022, an increase of 38.8% per share compared to the first quarter of 2021.
  • Reported an increase in same store net operating income ("NOI") of 22.2% for the first quarter of 2022 compared to the same period in 2021, driven by a 16.6% increase in same store total revenues partially offset by an increase of 3.1% in same store property operating expenses.
  • Reported same store period-end occupancy of 94.8% as of March 31, 2022, an increase of 140 basis points compared to March 31, 2021.
  • Acquired 12 wholly-owned self storage properties for approximately $92.9 million during the first quarter of 2022. Consideration for these acquisitions included the issuance of $16.6 million of OP equity.
  • Issued the previously announced $125.0 million of 2.96% senior unsecured notes due November 30, 2033 in a private placement.
  • As previously announced, one of the Company's largest participating regional operators ("PROs"), Kevin Howard Real Estate, Inc., d/b/a Northwest Self Storage and its controlled affiliates ("Northwest"), retired effective January 1, 2022. As a result of the retirement, on January 1, 2022, management of the Company's properties in the Northwest managed portfolio was transferred to NSA and the Northwest brand name and related intellectual property were internalized by the Company. In addition, NSA no longer pays supervisory and administrative fees or reimbursements to Northwest and all subordinated performance units related to Northwest's managed portfolio were converted into OP units.

Highlights Subsequent to Quarter-End

  • Kroll Bond Rating Agency upgraded the issuer credit rating of NSA's operating partnership to BBB+ with a Stable Outlook from BBB with a Positive Outlook.
  • In April 2022, one of the Company's unconsolidated real estate ventures acquired seven self storage properties for approximately $208 million. The venture financed the acquisition with capital contributions from the venture members, of which the Company contributed approximately $52 million.

Tamara Fischer, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “First quarter results confirmed that the favorable performance trends experienced in 2021 are continuing into 2022. Rental demand remains robust, supply remains muted, and we are benefiting from continued strength in rate growth to both new and in-place tenants. The combination of these factors drove the fourth consecutive quarter of NOI growth north of 20%, resulting in 39% core FFO per share growth. Based on this strong performance and favorable April trends, we are pleased to be able to raise our same store NOI growth and core FFO per share guidance for 2022.”

Net income increased $17.2 million for the first quarter of 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021. This increase resulted primarily from additional NOI generated from the 206 self storage properties acquired between April 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021, 12 self storage properties acquired during the three months ended March 31, 2022, same store NOI growth of 22.2% in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the same period 2021 and increases in equity in earnings from the Company's unconsolidated real estate ventures, partially offset by increases in depreciation and amortization, interest expense and general and administrative expenses.

The increase in FFO and Core FFO for the first quarter of 2022 was primarily the result of incremental NOI from properties acquired between April 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022 and same store NOI growth, partially offset by an increase in subordinated performance unit distributions.

Year-over-year same store total revenues increased 16.6% for the first quarter of 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021. The increase was driven primarily by a 250 basis point increase in average occupancy and a 13.4% increase in average annualized rental revenue per occupied square foot. Markets which generated above portfolio average same store total revenue growth for the first quarter of 2022 include: Riverside-San Bernardino, Atlanta and Sarasota. Markets which generated below portfolio average same store total revenue growth for the first quarter of 2022 include: Kansas City, Tulsa, and Los Angeles.

Year-over-year same store property operating expenses increased 3.1% for the first quarter of 2022. The increase primarily resulted from increases in property tax expense and utilities.

Investment Activity

During the first quarter, NSA invested $92.9 million in the acquisition of 12 self storage properties consisting of approximately 0.7 million rentable square feet configured in approximately 5,000 storage units. Total consideration for these acquisitions included approximately $76.0 million of net cash, $8.9 million of 6.000% Series A-1 cumulative redeemable preferred units, $5.6 million of OP units, $2.1 million of subordinated performance units and the assumption of approximately $0.3 million of other liabilities.

Balance Sheet

On January 28, 2022, the operating partnership issued $125.0 million of 2.96% senior unsecured notes due November 30, 2033 in a private placement to certain institutional investors. The Company used the proceeds to repay outstanding amounts on its revolving line of credit and for general corporate purposes.

On April 11, 2022, Kroll Bond Rating Agency upgraded the issuer credit rating of the Company's operating partnership to BBB+ with a Stable Outlook from BBB with a Positive Outlook.

Common Share Dividends

On February 24, 2022, NSA's Board of Trustees declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.50 per common share, representing a 43% increase from the first quarter 2021. The first quarter 2022 dividend was paid on March 31, 2022 to shareholders of record as of March 15, 2022.

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).

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(4) 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.
