Forward-Looking Statements

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, together with other statements and information publicly disseminated by U-Store-It Trust (“we,” “us,” “our” or the “Company”), contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Such statements are based on assumptions and expectations that may not be realized and are inherently subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which cannot be predicted with accuracy and some of which might not even be anticipated. Although we believe the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, future events and actual results, performance, transactions or achievements, financial and otherwise, may differ materially from the results, performance, transactions or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Risks, uncertainties and other factors that might cause such differences, some of which could be material, include, but are not limited to:

·         national and local economic, business, real estate and other market conditions;

·         the competitive environment in which we operate;

·         the execution of our business plan;

·         financing risks;

·         increases in interest rates and operating costs;

·         our ability to maintain our status as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) for federal income tax purposes;

·         acquisition and development risks;

·         changes in real estate and zoning laws or regulations;

·         risks related to natural disasters;

·         potential environmental and other liabilities;

·         material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting;

·         other factors affecting the real estate industry generally or the self-storage industry in particular

·         the risk that the consummation of the Settlement Agreement and related agreements (as described in note eleven to the financial statements presented in Item 1 of Part I) does not occur; and

·         other risks identified in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and, from time to time, in other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) or in other documents that we publicly disseminate.

We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise except as may be required in securities laws.

U-STORE-IT TRUST AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1.  ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF OPERATIONS

U-Store-It Trust, a Maryland real estate investment trust (collectively with its subsidiaries, “we” or the “Company”), is a self-administered and self-managed real estate investment trust, or REIT, active in acquiring, developing and operating self-storage properties for business and personal use under month-to-month leases.  As of June 30, 2007, the Company owned 397 self-storage facilities (collectively, the “Properties”) containing an aggregate of approximately 25.2 million square feet.  The Properties are located in 26 states throughout the United States.

The Company owns substantially all of its assets through U-Store-It, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (the “Operating Partnership”).  The Company is the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership and, as of June 30, 2007, owned a 91.8% interest in the Operating Partnership.  The Company manages its assets through YSI Management LLC (the “Management Company”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Operating Partnership.  In addition to managing the Properties, the Management Company managed approximately 1.1 million square feet related to facilities owned by related parties as of June 30, 2007. The Company owns 100% of U-Store-It Mini Warehouse Co. (the “TRS”), which it has elected to treat as a taxable REIT subsidiary. In general, a taxable REIT subsidiary may perform non-customary services for tenants, hold assets that the Company cannot hold directly and generally may engage in any real estate or non-real estate related business.

2.  RESTATEMENTS OF PREVIOUSLY ISSUED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 Subsequent to the issuance of the Company’s 2005 financial statements, the Audit Committee of the Board of Trustees of the Company, upon recommendation from management, concluded that the previously issued financial statements contained errors related to the Company’s classification of auction rate securities held at December 31, 2005 as cash and cash equivalents.  As a result, the Company is restating its previously issued financial statements as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2006.

In the quarter ended September 30, 2006, the Company early adopted Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 108 “Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements” (“SAB 108”).  As a result of the discovery of the error described above, the Company is restating its previously issued financial statements to reflect, in the appropriate periods, the correction of the errors originally corrected via an adjustment of the Company’s January 1, 2006 accumulated deficit in accordance with SAB 108.

The following is a description of the nature of the errors being corrected in the restatement:

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company adjusted its Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 30, 2006 to change the classification of outstanding checks from “Accounts payable and accrued expenses” to “Cash and cash equivalents.”  This adjustment had no effect on the Condensed Consolidated  Statement of Operations.

Auction Rate and Other Marketable Securities

The Company adjusted its Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 30, 2006 to change the classification of approximately $89.8 million of auction rate and approximately $5.4 million of other variable rate demand note securities from “Cash and cash equivalents” to “Marketable Securities.” Auction rate and variable rate demand note securities are securities that have stated maturities beyond three months, but are priced and traded as short-term investments due to the liquidity provided through an auction mechanism. The definition of a cash equivalent does not include these securities. This adjustment resulted in changes to the opening cash and cash equivalents balance in the Statement of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 30, 2006, and had no effect on the Condensed Consolidated  Statement of Operations.

Restricted Cash

The Company adjusted its Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 30, 2006 to change the classification of certain deposits related to facilities encumbered with mortgage loans from “Cash and cash equivalents” to “Restricted Cash.”  This adjustment resulted in changes to the opening cash and cash equivalents balance in the Statement of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 30, 2006, and had no effect on the Condensed Consolidated  Statement of Operations.

6




Loan Procurement Costs

 

The Company adjusted its Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2006 to reflect a change in amortization period of certain loan procurement costs, associated with debt instruments with increasing interest rates. The loan procurement costs were being amortized over a period inconsistent with the determination of the debt instruments’ interest cost.

Other Assets / Rental Income

The Company adjusted its Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2006 for adjustments to certain leasing transactions. The misstatement related to the period in which the revenue related to certain tenants had been recognized.

Accounts Payable and Accrued Expense

The Company adjusted its Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2006 to accrue for utility costs at period end and workers compensation expense that had been understated as a result of erroneous information used to previously calculate the expense.

Related Party Revenue

The Company adjusted its Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2006 to change the classification of management fee revenue earned through the Company’s management of certain facilities owned by related parties from “Rental income” to “Other-related party.”

In addition, the Company adjusted its Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 30, 2006 to correct the presentation of the change in accounts payable related to real estate investment as an Investing Activity where it had previously been reported as an Operating Activity, and the Company added disclosure regarding cash paid for interest, net of interest capitalized.

3.  SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation — The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) regarding interim financial reporting and, in the opinion of management, include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Accordingly, readers of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should refer to the Company’s audited financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP, and the related notes thereto, for the year ended December 31, 2006, which are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006, as certain footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted from this report pursuant to the rules of the SEC. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for any future period or the full year.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2007, the FASB issued Statement No. 159, The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Liabilities Including an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 115, (SFAS 159). This Statement permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value that are not currently required to be measured at fair value. The Statement also establishes presentation and disclosure requirements designed to facilitate comparisons between entities that choose different measurement attributes for similar types of assets and liabilities. The Statement is effective as of the beginning of an entity’s first fiscal year that begins after November 15, 2007. Early adoption is permitted. We are evaluating the impact, if any, of the adoption of this Statement on our consolidated financial statements.

In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157, Fair Value Measurements (“SFAS No. 157”). SFAS No. 157 provides guidance for using fair value to measure assets and liabilities. This statement clarifies the principle that fair value should be based on the assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability. SFAS No. 157 establishes a fair value hierarchy, giving the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets and the lowest priority to unobservable data. SFAS No. 157 applies whenever other standards require assets or liabilities to be measured at fair value. This statement is effective in fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007. The Company believes that the adoption of this standard on January 1, 2008 will not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

In June 2006, the FASB issued Interpretation No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes, an Interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109 (“FIN 48”).  FIN 48 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in a company’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return.  FIN 48 also provides guidance on description, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition.  FIN 48 became effective for the Company on January 1, 2007.  The adoption of this standard had no material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

5.  REVOLVING CREDIT FACILITY AND UNSECURED TERM LOAN

As of June 30, 2007, the Company and its Operating Partnership had in place a three-year $450 million unsecured credit facility, including $200 million in an unsecured term loan and $250 million in unsecured revolving loans, for which the outstanding balance was $307.5 million and was comprised of $200 million of term loan borrowings and $107.5 million of unsecured revolving loans.  As of June 30, 2007, the Company had approximately $142.5 million available under the Company’s credit facility.  Borrowings under the credit facility bear interest, at our option, at either an alternative base rate or a Eurodollar rate, in each case, plus an applicable margin based on our leverage ratio or our credit rating.  The alternative base interest rate is a fluctuating rate equal to the higher of the prime rate or the sum of the federal funds effective rate plus 50 basis points.  The applicable margin for the alternative base rate will vary from 0.00% to 0.50% depending on our leverage ratio prior to achieving an investment grade rating, and will vary from 0.00% to 0.25% depending on our credit rating after achieving an investment grade rating.  The Eurodollar rate is a rate of interest that is fixed for interest periods of one, two, three or six months based on the LIBOR rate determined two business days prior to the commencement of the applicable interest period.  The applicable margin for the Eurodollar rate will vary from 1.00% to 1.50% depending on our leverage ratio prior to achieving an investment grade rating, and will vary from 0.425% to 1.00% depending on our credit rating after achieving an investment grade rating.  This credit facility is scheduled to terminate on November 20, 2009, with an option for the Company to extend the termination date to November 20, 2010. At June 30, 2007, borrowings under the unsecured credit facility had a weighted average interest rate of 6.47%. The Company was in compliance with all financial covenants at June 30, 2007.

7.  MINORITY INTERESTS

Operating Partnership minority interests relate to the interests in the Operating Partnership that are not owned by the Company, which at June 30, 2007 and December 31, 2006 amounted to approximately 8.2% and 8.3%, respectively.  These minority interests consist of Operating Partnership units that were a component of the consideration the Company paid to acquire certain self-storage facilities. Limited partners who acquired Operating Partnership units have the right to require the Operating Partnership to redeem part or all of their Operating Partnership units for, at the Company’s option, an equivalent number of common shares or cash based upon the fair market value of an equivalent number of common shares. The market value of the Company’s common shares for this purpose will be equal to the average of the closing trading price of the Company’s common shares on the New York Stock Exchange for the 10 trading days before the day on which the Company received the redemption notice.

Robert J. Amsdell, former Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Trustees, retired from the Board effective as of February 13, 2007.  Barry L. Amsdell submitted his letter of resignation from the Board on February 20, 2007.  Effective as of February 19, 2007 Todd C. Amsdell, President of U-Store-It Development LLC, a subsidiary of the Company, resigned.

Acquisition of Facilities

In connection with the Company’s initial public offering (the “IPO”), the Company entered into option agreements with Rising Tide Development, a company owned and controlled by Robert J. Amsdell and Barry L. Amsdell, to acquire 18 self-storage facilities, consisting, as of June 30, 2007, of 14 facilities owned by Rising Tide Development, one facility which Rising Tide Development has the right to acquire from an unaffiliated third party and three facilities which have since been acquired by the Company pursuant to the exercise of its options. The options become exercisable with respect to each particular self-storage facility if and when that facility achieves a month-end occupancy level of 85% for three consecutive months. The purchase price will be equal to the lower of (i) a price determined by multiplying in-place net operating income at the time of purchase by 12.5 and (ii) the fair market value of the option facility as determined by an appraisal process involving third party appraisers. The Company’s option to acquire these facilities will expire on October 27, 2008. The determination to purchase any of the option facilities will be made by the independent members of the Company’s Board of Trustees.  During 2005, the Company exercised its option to purchase three of these facilities for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $17.4 million, consisting of an aggregate of $6.8 million in Operating Partnership units and $10.6 million in cash after a price reduction of $1.7 million of consideration in May 2005. The price reduction resulted from a discovery that the calculation of the March purchase price was not made in accordance with the terms specified in the option agreement, which resulted in the overpayment. As described in Note 11 below, the Company entered into a Purchase Agreement with respect to 14 of the remaining option facilities, and upon closing of the Company’s purchase of these facilities the option agreement will terminate. On May 14, 2005, the Company entered into an agreement with Rising Tide Development pursuant to which 100,202 units in the Operating Partnership previously issued to Rising Tide Development were cancelled and $28,057 in cash (representing the distribution paid with respect to such units in April 2005) was returned to the Company.

The Company, in accordance with a contract signed on April 3, 2006, acquired nine self-storage facilities from Jernigan Property Group on July 27, 2006 for consideration of approximately $45.3 million. Our President and Chief Executive Officer, Dean Jernigan, serves as President of Jernigan Property Group and has a 20% beneficial interest in one self-storage facility partially owned by Jernigan Property Group and related companies and partnerships. Mr. Jernigan has agreed that he will not expand his interest, ownership or activity in the self-storage business. Given Mr. Jernigan’s appointment as a Trustee and the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company on April 24, 2006, this transaction was subject to review and final approval by a majority of the independent members of the Company’s Board of Trustees. Mr. Jernigan has discontinued all involvement in the day-to-day management or operation of the Jernigan Property Group.

Management Services

Effective October 27, 2004, YSI Management LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Operating Partnership, entered into a management contract with Rising Tide Development to provide property management services to the option facilities for a fee equal to the greater of 5.35% of the gross revenues of each facility or $1,500 per facility per month. Management fees earned by YSI Management LLC, from Rising Tide Development, were approximately $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2007 and 2006, and are included in other related party revenues. Accounts receivable from Rising Tide Development at June 30, 2007 and December 31, 2006 were approximately $1.4 million and $0.6 million, respectively, and are included in due from related parties. These amounts represent expenses paid on behalf of Rising Tide Development by YSI Management LLC and proceeds from the sale of ancillary items that will be reimbursed under standard business terms. Upon closing of the Company’s purchase of 14 facilities, as described in Note 11 below, the management contract will terminate.

Historically, the Company engaged Amsdell Construction, a company owned by Robert J. Amsdell and Barry L. Amsdell, to maintain and improve its self-storage facilities. The total payments incurred by the Company to Amsdell Construction during 2006 was approximately $42,000 (approximately $27,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2006). The Company did not engage Amsdell Construction during 2007.

Corporate Office Leases

During 2005 and 2006, the Operating Partnership entered into various office lease agreements with Amsdell and Amsdell, an entity owned by Robert J. Amsdell and Barry L. Amsdell.  Pursuant to these lease agreements, during 2006 we rented office space from Amsdell and Amsdell at The Parkview Building, a multi-tenant office building of approximately 40,000 square feet located at 6745 Engle Road, an office building of approximately 18,000 square feet located at 6751 Engle Road, and an office building of approximately 28,000 square feet located at 6779 Engle Road.  Each of these properties is part of Airport Executive Park, a 50-acre office and flex development located in Cleveland, Ohio, which is owned by Amsdell and Amsdell. Our independent Trustees approved the terms of, and entry into, each of the office lease agreements by the Operating Partnership.  The table below shows the office space subject to these lease agreements and certain key terms, including the term of each lease agreement, the period for which the Operating Partnership may extend the term of each lease agreement, and the minimum and maximum rents payable per month during the term.

Aircraft Lease

The Company chartered an aircraft from Aqua Sun Investments, L.L.C. (“Aqua Sun”), a company owned by Robert J. Amsdell and Barry L. Amsdell. The Company was under contract pursuant to a timesharing agreement to reimburse Aqua Sun at the rate of $1,250 for each hour of use of the aircraft and the payment of certain expenses associated with the use of the aircraft. As described in the paragraph below, effective June 30, 2005 the timesharing agreement was terminated by mutual agreement of the parties thereto and was replaced on July 1, 2005 with a non-exclusive aircraft lease agreement with Aqua Sun (the “Aircraft Lease”). The Company’s independent Trustees approved the terms of, and the entry into, the Aircraft Lease by the Operating Partnership.

The Operating Partnership may lease for corporate use from time to time an airplane owned by Aqua Sun at an hourly rate of $1,450 per flight hour. Aqua Sun is responsible for various costs associated with operation of the airplane, including insurance, storage and maintenance and repair, but the Operating Partnership is responsible for fuel costs and the costs of pilots and other cabin personnel required for its use of the airplane. The Aircraft Lease, which was effective as of July 1, 2005, had a one-year term and was terminated on June 30, 2006. The total amounts incurred for such aircraft charters described above by the Company for the three and six months ended in June 30, 2006 was approximately $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively. No amounts were incurred during 2007.

Other

During the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company engaged a consultant to assist us in establishing certain development protocols and processes. In connection with that assignment, our outside consultant utilized the services of Dean Jernigan’s son-in-law. Our payments for his son-in-law’s services totaled approximately $55,000 in 2007.

The Company engaged Dunlevy Building Systems Inc., a company owned by John Dunlevy, a brother-in-law of Robert J. Amsdell and Barry L. Amsdell, for construction, zoning consultant and general contractor services at certain of its self-storage facilities. The total payments incurred by the Company to Dunlevy Building Systems Inc. for the three and six months ended June 30, 2006 were approximately $8,000 and $19,000, respectively.  No amounts were incurred during 2007.

Registration Rights

Robert J. Amsdell, Barry L. Amsdell, Todd C. Amsdell and the “Amsdell Entities” that acquired common shares or Operating Partnership units in the formation transactions which took place at the time of the IPO received certain registration rights. An aggregate of approximately 9.7 million common shares acquired in the formation transactions were subject to a registration rights agreement (including approximately 1.1 million shares issuable upon redemption of approximately 1.1 million Operating Partnership units issued in the formation transactions).

In addition, Rising Tide Development received registration rights with respect to the Operating Partnership units it received in connection with the Company’s acquisition of three option facilities. An aggregate of approximately 0.4 million common shares (which shares are issuable upon redemption of approximately 0.4 million Operating Partnership units issued in connection with the Company’s option exercises) were subject to a registration rights agreement.

In March 2007, the Company filed a Registration Statement on Form S-3 to satisfy all of the abovementioned registration rights and the Registration Statement was effective upon filing and remains effective.

11.  SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

On August 6, 2007, the Company announced that it reached agreement to settle all pending state and federal court litigation involving the Company and the interests of Robert J. Amsdell, former Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Barry L. Amsdell, former Trustee of the Company, Todd C. Amsdell, former President of U-Store-It Development LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“USI Development”), and Kyle Amsdell, son of Robert and brother of Todd Amsdell (collectively, the “Amsdells”), and Rising Tide Development LLC, a company owned and controlled by Robert J. Amsdell and Barry L. Amsdell (“Rising Tide”).  The Board of Trustees of the Company, along with the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee, approved the terms of the settlement.

16




Pursuant to a Settlement Agreement and Mutual Release, dated August 6, 2007, (the “Settlement Agreement”) each of the parties to the agreement executed various agreements and, subject to the consummation of these agreements, will voluntarily dismiss, with prejudice, all pending litigation among the parties.  Each of these agreements is conditioned upon the closing of the acquisition of self-storage facilities from Rising Tide pursuant to a Purchase and Sale Agreement described below.  A summary of the various agreements follows:

·                  Purchase and Sale Agreement.  The Operating Partnership will purchase 14 self-storage facilities that currently are owned by Rising Tide for an aggregate purchase price of $121 million.

·                  Standstill Agreement.  As a part of the Settlement Agreement, Robert J. Amsdell, Barry L. Amsdell and Todd C. Amsdell agreed pursuant to the terms of a Standstill Agreement with the Company dated August 6, 2007, that through June 30, 2008, unless approved in advance by the independent members of the Board of Trustees of the Company, neither they, nor any member of their family, nor any company or trust controlled by all or any one of them, will commence or participate in any proxy solicitation or initiate any shareholder proposal; take any action to convene a meeting of shareholders; take any actions, including making any public or private proposal or announcement, that could result in an extraordinary corporate transaction relating to the Company, including a tender or exchange offer for Company securities, a merger, business combination, sale of substantially all assets, liquidation or consolidation; form, join or in any way participate in a group for the purpose of taking any actions described in the foregoing; advise, assist or encourage any other person in connection with any of the foregoing; or direct, advise or cause any of their family trusts to take any action restricted or prohibited under or in connection therewith. Under the Standstill Agreement, if an unrelated third party submits an offer to acquire the Company, the Amsdells are not precluded from making their own competing offer to acquire the Company.

·                  First Amendment to Lease.  The Operating Partnership and Amsdell and Amsdell entered into a First Amendment to Lease which modifies certain terms of all lease agreements between the Operating Partnership and Amsdell and Amsdell for office space in Cleveland, Ohio.  The First Amendment provides the Operating Partnership the ability to assign or sublease the lease agreements.  Separately, Amsdell and Amsdell consented to the Operating Partnership’s proposed sublease of approximately 22,000 square feet of office space covered by the aforementioned leases.

·                  Termination of Option Agreement.  The Operating Partnership and Rising Tide entered into an Option Termination Agreement that terminates an Option Agreement, dated October 27, 2004, by and between the Operating Partnership and Rising Tide.  The Option Agreement provided the Operating Partnership with an option to acquire Rising Tide’s right, title and interest to 18 properties, including:  the 14 Rising Tide Properties discussed above; three properties that the Operating Partnership acquired in 2005 pursuant to exercise of its option; and one undeveloped property that Rising Tide has the option to acquire and that will not be acquired as a part of the Purchase and Sale Agreement.

·                  Termination of Property Management Agreement, and Marketing and Ancillary Services Agreement.  Certain of the Company’s subsidiaries and Rising Tide entered into a Property Management Termination Agreement and a Marketing and Ancillary Services Termination Agreement. Under the Property Management Agreement, the Company provided property management services for the Rising Tide Properties for a fee equal to the greater of 5.35% of the gross revenues of each property or $1,500 per property per month.  Under the Marketing and Ancillary Services Agreement, the Company provided limited marketing and other miscellaneous services for the Rising Tide Properties.  In connection with the termination of the Property Management Agreement, expenses relating to property management will be prorated.

·      Amendment of Employment and Non-Compete Agreements.  As a part of the Settlement Agreement, the Company entered into a Modification of Noncompetition Agreement and Termination of Employment Agreement (each a “Modification of Noncompetition Agreement and Termination of Employment Agreement”) with each of Robert J. Amsdell and Todd C. Amsdell, and a Modification of Noncompetition Agreement (“Modification of Noncompetition Agreement”) with Barry L. Amsdell, which terminates and modifies specific provisions of the noncompetition agreement the Company has with each of them, dated October 27, 2004 (the “Original Noncompetition Agreements”). The Original Noncompetition Agreements restrict the ability of Robert J., Barry L. and Todd C. Amsdell to compete with the Company for one year and their ability to solicit employees of the Company for two years from the date of their termination of employment or resignation from service as a Trustee. Pursuant to these modification agreements, Todd C. Amsdell will be able to compete with the Company, and Robert J. and Barry L. Amsdell will be able to (a) develop the one Rising Tide property that the Company will not acquire under the Purchase Agreement and (b) compete with respect to any property identified as part of a Section 1031 “like-kind exchange” referenced in the purchase agreement. Further, each Original Noncompetition Agreement is modified to allow each of them to hire, for any purpose, any employee or independent contractor who was terminated, has resigned or otherwise left the employment or other service of the Company or any of its affiliates on or prior to June 1, 2007.

The Modification and Noncompetition Agreement and Termination of Employment Agreement with each of Robert J. Amsdell and Todd C. Amsdell also terminates the employment agreements the Company had with each of them, effective as of February 13, 2007 with respect to Robert J. Amsdell and February 19, 2007 with respect to Todd C. Amsdell.

The foregoing descriptions of the Settlement Agreement, the Purchase and Sale Agreement, the Standstill Agreement, the First Amendment to Lease, the Termination of Option Agreement, the Property Management Termination Agreement and the Marketing and Ancillary Services Termination Agreement are qualified in their entirety by the full terms and conditions of each such agreement.

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following Management’s Discussion and Analysis gives effect to the restatements discussed in Note 2 to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this report. The Company makes certain statements in this section that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. For a complete discussion of forward-looking statements, see the section in this report entitled “Forward-Looking Statements.” Certain risk factors may cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the following discussion. For a discussion of such risk factors, see the section in this report entitled “Risk Factors.”

Overview

On October 27, 2004, the Company completed its IPO, pursuant to which it sold an aggregate of 28,750,000 common shares (including 3,750,000 shares pursuant to the exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option) at an offering price of $16.00 per share. The IPO resulted in gross proceeds to the Company of $460.0 million. On October 7, 2005, the Company completed a follow-on public offering, pursuant to which it sold an aggregate of 19,665,000 common shares (including 2,565,000 shares pursuant to the exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option) at an offering price of $20.35 per share, for gross proceeds of approximately $400.2 million.

The Company is an integrated self-storage real estate company, with in-house capabilities in the operation, design, development, leasing, and acquisition of self-storage facilities. The Company has elected to be taxed as a REIT for federal tax purposes. At June 30, 2007 and December 31, 2006, the Company owned 397 and 399 self-storage facilities, respectively, totaling approximately 25.2 million and 25.4 million square feet, respectively.

The Company derives revenues principally from rents received from our customers who rent units at our self-storage facilities under month-to-month leases. Therefore, our operating results depend materially on our ability to retain our existing customers and lease our available self-storage units to new customers while maintaining and, where possible, increasing our pricing levels. In addition, our operating results depend on the ability of our customers to make required rental payments to us.  We believe that our decentralized approach to the management and operation of our facilities allows us to respond quickly and effectively to changes in local market conditions.  Emphasis on local, market level oversight and control enhances our ability to optimize occupancy and pricing levels.

The Company experiences minor seasonal fluctuations in the occupancy levels of our facilities, which are generally slightly higher during the summer months due to increased moving activity.

In the future, the Company intends to focus on maximizing our internal growth, selectively pursue targeted acquisitions and developments of self-storage facilities and recycle capital through selectively disposing of self-storage facilities that no longer meet our investment criteria. We intend to incur additional debt in connection with any such future acquisitions or developments.

The Company has one reportable operating segment: we own, operate, develop, and acquire self-storage facilities.

The Company’s self-storage facilities are located in major metropolitan areas and have numerous tenants per facility. All our operations are within the United States and no single tenant represents 1% or more of our revenues. The facilities in Florida, California, Texas and Illinois provided approximately 18%, 15%, 8% and 7%, respectively, of total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2007.

Summary of Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Set forth below is a summary of the accounting policies that management believes are critical to the preparation of the unaudited condensed consolidated  financial statements included in this report. Certain of the accounting policies used in the preparation of these consolidated financial statements are particularly important for an understanding of the financial position and results of operations presented in the historical condensed consolidated financial statements included in this report. These policies require the application of

18




judgment and assumptions by management and, as a result, are subject to a degree of uncertainty. Due to this uncertainty, actual results could differ from estimates calculated and utilized by management.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all of the accounts of the Company, the Operating Partnership and the wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Operating Partnership.

Self-Storage Facilities

The Company records self-storage facilities at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation on the buildings and equipment is recorded on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives, which range from five to 39 years. Expenditures for significant renovations or improvements that extend the useful life of assets are capitalized. Repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred.

When facilities are acquired, the purchase price is allocated to the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on estimated fair values. When a portfolio of facilities is acquired, the purchase price is allocated to the individual facilities based upon an income approach or a cash flow analysis using appropriate risk adjusted capitalization rates, which take into account the relative size, age and location of the individual facility, along with current and projected occupancy and rental rate levels or appraised values, if available. Allocations to the individual assets and liabilities are based upon comparable market sales information for land, buildings and improvements and estimates of depreciated replacement cost of equipment.

In allocating the purchase price, the Company determines whether the acquisition includes intangible assets or liabilities. Substantially all of the leases in place at acquired facilities are at market rates, as the majority of the leases are month-to-month contracts. Accordingly, to date, no portion of the purchase price has been allocated to above- or below-market lease intangibles. The Company also considers whether the in-place, at market leases for any facility represent an intangible asset. Based upon the Company’s experience, leases of this nature generally re-let in less than 30 days and lease-up costs are minimal. Accordingly, the Company has no intangible assets recorded for in-place, at market leases as of June 30, 2007 and December 31, 2006.  Additionally, to date, no intangible asset has been recorded for the value of tenant relationships, because the Company does not have any concentrations of significant tenants and the average tenant turnover is fairly frequent.

Long-lived assets classified as “held for use” are reviewed for impairment when events and circumstances indicate that there may be an impairment. The carrying values of these long-lived assets are compared to the undiscounted future net operating cash flows attributable to the assets. An impairment loss is recorded if the net carrying value of the asset exceeds the fair value based on the undiscounted future net operating cash flows attributable to the asset and if circumstances indicate that the carrying value of the real estate asset may not be recoverable. The impairment loss recognized equals the excess of net carrying value over the related fair value of the asset.

The Company considers long-lived assets to be “held for sale” upon satisfaction of the following criteria: (a) management commits to a plan to sell a facility (or group of facilities), (b) the facility is available for immediate sale in its present condition subject only to terms that are usual and customary for sales of such facilities, (c) an active program to locate a buyer and other actions required to complete the plan to sell the facility have been initiated, (d) the sale of the facility is probable and transfer of the asset is expected to be completed within one year, (e) the facility is being actively marketed for sale at a price that is reasonable in relation to its current fair value, and (f) actions required to complete the plan indicate that it is unlikely that significant changes to the plan will be made or that the plan will be withdrawn.

Typically these criteria are all met when the relevant asset is under contract, significant non-refundable deposits have been made by the potential buyer, the assets are immediately available for transfer and there are no contingencies related to the sale that may prevent the transaction from closing. In most transactions, these contingencies are not satisfied until the actual closing of the transaction; and, accordingly, the facility is not identified as held for sale until the closing actually occurs. However, each potential transaction is evaluated based on its separate facts and circumstances.

19




Revenue Recognition

Management has determined that all of our leases with tenants are operating leases. Rental income is recognized in accordance with the terms of the lease agreements or contracts, which generally are month-to-month. Revenues from long-term operating leases are recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. The excess of rents recognized over amounts contractually due pursuant to the underlying leases is included in deferred revenue, and contractually due but unpaid rents are included in other assets.

Share-Based Payments

We apply the fair value method of accounting for contingently issued shares and share options issued under our incentive award plan. Accordingly, share compensation expense was recorded ratably over the vesting period relating to such contingently issued shares and options. The Company has elected to recognize compensation expense on a straight-line method over the requisite service period.  Compensation expense recorded for the three months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006 was approximately $0.5 million and $0.2 million, respectively and $0.8 million and $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively.

Minority Interests

Minority Interests include income allocated to holders of the Operating Partnership units. Income is allocated to the minority interests based on their ownership percentage of the Operating Partnership. This ownership percentage, as well as the total net assets of the Operating Partnership, changes when additional shares of our common stock or Operating Partnership units are issued. Such changes result in an allocation between shareholders’ equity and Minority Interests in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Due to the number of such capital transactions that occur each period, we present the single net effect of all such allocations for the period as “Adjustment for Minority Interest in Operating Partnership” in our Consolidated Statements of Shareholders’ Equity (rather than separately allocating the minority interests for each individual capital transaction).

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2007, the FASB issued Statement No. 159, The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Liabilities Including an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 115, (SFAS 159). This Statement permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value that are not currently required to be measured at fair value. The Statement also establishes presentation and disclosure requirements designed to facilitate comparisons between entities that choose different measurement attributes for similar types of assets and liabilities. The Statement is effective as of the beginning of an entity’s first fiscal year that begins after November 15, 2007. Early adoption is permitted. We are evaluating the impact, if any, of the adoption of this Statement on our consolidated financial statements.

In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157, Fair Value Measurements (“SFAS No. 157”). SFAS No. 157 provides guidance for using fair value to measure assets and liabilities. This statement clarifies the principle that fair value should be based on the assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability. SFAS No. 157 establishes a fair value hierarchy, giving the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets and the lowest priority to unobservable data. SFAS No. 157 applies whenever other standards require assets or liabilities to be measured at fair value. This statement is effective in fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007. The Company believes that the adoption of this standard on January 1, 2008 will not have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

In June 2006, the FASB issued Interpretation No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes, an Interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109 (“FIN 48”).  FIN 48 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in a company’s financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return.  FIN 48 also provides guidance on description, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition.  FIN 48 became effective for the Company on January 1, 2007.  The adoption of this standard had no material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

Results of Operations

The following discussion of our results of operations should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes thereto. Historical results set forth in the condensed consolidated statements of operations reflect only the existing facilities and should not be taken as indicative of future operations.

Acquisition and Development Activities

The comparability of the Company’s results of operations is affected by acquisition and disposition activities in 2007 and 2006. At June 30, 2007 and 2006, the Company owned 397 and 383 self-storage facilities and related assets, respectively.

The following table summarizes the acquisition activity that the Company completed during the six months ended June 30, 2007:

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2007 and June 30, 2006

Total Revenues

Rental income increased from $49.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2006 to $51.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $2.5 million, or 5%. This increase is primarily attributable to additional rental income from the 2006 and 2007 Acquisitions.

Other property related income, including Other - related party, increased from $3.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2006 to $4.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $0.9 million, or 24%. This increase is attributable to other property income from the 2006 and 2007 Acquisitions as well as an increase of $0.4 million from our “same-store” facilities.

Total Operating Expenses

Property operating expenses, including Property operating expenses — related party, increased from $20.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2006 to $22.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $1.5 million, or 7%. This increase is primarily attributable to additional operating expenses from the 2006 and 2007 Acquisitions.

General and administrative expenses, including General and administrative — related party, increased from $4.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2006 to $5.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $1.4 million, or 32%.  The increase is primarily attributable to increased legal, professional fee and medical costs. Depreciation increased from $15.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2006 to $16.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $1.1 million, or 7%. The increase is primarily attributable to additional depreciation expense related to the 2006 and 2007 Acquisitions.

The increase is attributable to a higher amount of outstanding debt during the three months ended June 30, 2007, primarily resulting from the financing of certain of the 2006 and 2007 Acquisitions with additional borrowings.

Interest income decreased to $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007 from $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2006. This decrease is primarily attributable to the Company’s 2005 follow-on public offering.  The Company invested excess proceeds from the follow-on offering in interest bearing accounts and in short-term marketable securities until the excess proceeds were used to fund acquisitions or pay down existing debt during the 2006 period.
