(1) Adjustment to account for the difference between the number of shares used
to calculate earnings per share using the two class method, which is lower
than the number of shares used to compute FFO per share and FFO as adjusted
per share, which are calculated assuming full redemption of all OP units as
described in note (2).
(2) Extra Space Storage L.P. (the "Operating Partnership") has outstanding
preferred and common operating partnership units ("OP units"). These OP units
can be redeemed for shares of the Company's common stock. Redemption of all OP
units for common stock has been assumed for purposes of calculating the
weighted average number of shares — diluted as presented above. The
computation of weighted average shares — diluted for FFO per share and FFO as
adjusted per share also includes the effect of share-based compensation plans
using the treasury stock method.

Same-store revenues for the three months ended March31, 2014 increased due to
gains in occupancy, lower discounts to new customers and higher rental rates
for both new and existing customers. Expenses were higher for the same period
due to increases in snow removal and utility expenses, which relate primarily
to the severe weather experienced in the Midwest and Eastern United States
during the period.

Major markets with revenue growth above the Company's portfolio average for
the three months ended March31, 2014 included Chicago, Denver, Houston and
Miami. Major markets performing below the Company's portfolio average
included Detroit, Indianapolis, Las Vegas and Seattle.

During the quarter, the Company acquired 21 properties for approximately
$249.7 million. Seventeen of the 21 properties acquired were from a single
portfolio located in Virginia. The remaining four properties are located in
Alabama, California, Connecticut and Texas. Subsequent to the end of the
quarter, the Company acquired five additional properties located in
California, Florida and Georgia for approximately $60.5 million.

The Company has four additional properties under contract for a total purchase
price of approximately $39.3 million. The purchase of these properties is
expected to occur by the end of the second quarter of 2014. These
acquisitions are subject to due diligence and other customary closing
conditions and no assurance can be provided that these acquisitions will be
completed on the terms described, or at all.

As of March31, 2014, the Company managed 252 properties for third-party
owners. With an additional 273 properties owned and operated in joint
ventures, the Company had a total of 525 properties under management. The
Company continues to be the largest self-storage management company in the
United States.

As of March31, 2014, the Company's percentage of fixed-rate debt to total
debt was 74.2%. The weighted average interest rates of the Company's fixed and
variable rate debt were 4.1% and 2.0%, respectively. The combined weighted
average interest rate was 3.6% with a weighted average maturity of

and other information that is not historical information. In some cases,
forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as
"believes," "estimates," "expects," "may," "will," "should," "anticipates," or
"intends," or the negative of such terms or other comparable terminology, or
by discussions of strategy. We may also make additional forward-looking
statements from time to time. All such subsequent forward-looking statements,
whether written or oral, by us or on our behalf, are also expressly qualified
by these cautionary statements. There are a number of risks and uncertainties

but are not limited to:

  oadverse changes in general economic conditions, the real estate industry
    and the markets in which we operate;
  ofailure to close pending acquisitions on expected terms, or at all;
  othe effect of competition from new and existing self-storage facilities or
    other storage alternatives, which could cause rents and occupancy rates to
  odifficulties in our ability to evaluate, finance, complete and integrate
    acquisitions and developments successfully and to lease up those
    properties, which could adversely affect our profitability;
  opotential liability for uninsured losses and environmental contamination;
  othe impact of the regulatory environment as well as national, state and
    local laws and regulations, including, without limitation, those governing
    real estate investment trusts ("REITs"), tenant reinsurance and other

  oincreased interest rates and operating costs;
  oreductions in asset valuations and related impairment charges;

All forward-looking statements are based upon our current expectations and
various assumptions. Our expectations, beliefs and projections are expressed

the date made. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise
forward-looking statements which may be made to reflect events or
circumstances after the date made or to reflect the occurrence of

Definition of FFO:

FFO provides relevant and meaningful information about the Company's operating
performance that is necessary, along with net income and cash flows, for an
understanding of the Company's operating results. The Company believes FFO is
a meaningful disclosure as a supplement to net earnings. Net earnings assume
that the values of real estate assets diminish predictably over time as
reflected through depreciation and amortization expenses. The values of real
estate assets fluctuate due to market conditions and the Company believes FFO
more accurately reflects the value of the Company's real estate assets. FFO
is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts,Inc.
("NAREIT") as net income computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted
accounting principles ("GAAP"), excluding gains or losses on sales of
operating properties and impairment write downs of depreciable real estate
assets, plus depreciation and amortization and after adjustments to record
unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures on the same basis. The Company
believes that to further understand the Company's performance, FFO should be
considered along with the reported net income and cash flows in accordance
with GAAP, as presented in the Company's consolidated financial statements.

For informational purposes, the Company provides FFO as adjusted for the
exclusion of non-recurring revenues and expenses, acquisition related costs
and non-cash interest charges. Although the Company's calculation of FFO as
adjusted differs from NAREIT's definition of FFO and may not be comparable to
that of other REITs and real estate companies, the Company believes it
provides a meaningful supplemental measure of operating performance. The
Company believes that by excluding non-recurring revenues and expenses, the
costs related to acquiring properties and non-cash interest charges,
stockholders and potential investors are presented with an indicator of its
operating performance that more closely achieves the objectives of the real
estate industry in presenting FFO. FFO as adjusted by the Company should not
be considered a replacement of the NAREIT definition of FFO. The computation
of FFO may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs or real estate
companies that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT
definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently. FFO
does not represent cash generated from operating activities determined in
accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net
income as an indication of the Company's performance, as an alternative to net
cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or as an
indicator of the Company's ability to make cash distributions.

Definition of Same-Store Properties:

The Company's same-store properties for the periods presented consist of 443
properties that are wholly-owned and operated and that were stabilized by the
first day of the earliest calendar year presented. The Company considers a
property to be stabilized once it has been open for three years or has
sustained average square foot occupancy of 80.0% or more for one calendar
year. Same-store results provide information relating to property operations
without the effects of acquisitions or completed developments and should not
be used as a basis for future same-store performance or for the performance of
the Company's properties as a whole.
