EPS attributable to the Company’s common shareholders was $0.21 for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $0.18 for the same period last year.

The Company acquired a store in Texas for $19.0 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018 and subsequent to quarter-end, acquired a store in Washington, D.C. for $34.2 million. In total for the year to date through this press release, the Company has acquired three properties for $65.4 million and currently has three additional properties under contract for $62.4 million.
Unconsolidated Joint Venture Activity
During the second quarter of 2018, the Company’s joint venture, HVP IV, acquired four properties located in Florida (2), Georgia and Texas for $42.9 million, of which the Company contributed $3.9 million. Year to date through the date of this release, HVP IV has acquired eight properties for $93.9 million, of which the Company has contributed $14.1 million. Additionally, HVP IV has two properties under contract for $20.5 million that are expected to close during the third quarter of 2018.
On May 16, 2018, HVP IV received a $43.7 million initial advance on its $107.0 million loan facility, which encumbers the first six stores that were acquired by the venture. The loan bears interest at LIBOR plus 1.70% and matures on May 16, 2021 with options to extend the maturity date through May 16, 2023, subject to satisfaction of certain conditions and payment of the extension fees as stipulated in the loan agreement.
The Company has agreements with developers for the construction of Class A self-storage properties. These agreements are structured as either purchases at completion of construction and issuance of certificate of occupancy (“C/O”) or as joint venture developments. The Company did not acquire any properties at C/O or open for operation any development properties during the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.
As of June 30, 2018, the Company had two properties under contract to purchase at C/O for a total acquisition price of $40.0 million. The stores are located in California and Florida. The purchases of the two properties are expected to occur by the fourth quarter of 2018. 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 June 30, 2018, the Company had seven joint venture development properties under construction. The Company anticipates investing a total of $250.0 million related to these projects and had invested $102.8 million of that total as of June 30, 2018. These stores are located in New York (4), Massachusetts (2), and New Jersey. The seven projects are expected to open at various times between the third quarter of 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2019.
As of June 30, 2018, the Company’s third-party management program included 535 stores totaling 35.3 million square feet. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company added 41 stores and 88 stores, respectively, to its third-party management program.
The Company’s same-store portfolio at June 30, 2018 included 458 stores containing approximately 31.6 million rentable square feet, or approximately 93.1% of the aggregate rentable square feet of the Company’s 486 owned stores. These same-store properties represented approximately 95.4% of property net operating income for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.
Same-store physical occupancy at period end for the second quarter of 2018 was 94.4%, compared with 94.5% for the same quarter of last year. Same-store revenues for the second quarter of 2018 increased 3.2% and same-store operating expenses increased 3.2% from the same quarter in 2017. Same-store net operating income increased 3.3%, as compared with the same period in 2017.
As of June 30, 2018, the Company’s total owned portfolio included 486 stores containing 33.9 million rentable square feet and had a physical occupancy of 92.5%.
Revenues increased $9.3 million and property operating expenses increased $4.7 million in the second quarter of 2018, as compared with the same period in 2017. Increases in revenues were primarily attributable to increased net effective rents in the 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 $2.4 million increase in costs associated with the growth in our third-party management program as well as system enhancements, a $1.2 million increase in same-store expenses primarily due to higher property taxes and utility costs and $1.1 million of increased expenses associated with newly acquired or developed stores.
Interest expense increased from $14.0 million during the three months ended June 30, 2017 to $15.5 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018, an increase of $1.5 million. The increase is attributable to a higher amount of outstanding debt and higher interest rates during the 2018 period. To fund a portion of the Company’s growth, the average debt balance during the three months ended June 30, 2018 increased approximately $48 million from the same period in 2017 from $1,632 million to $1,680 million. The weighted average effective interest rate on our outstanding debt increased from 3.80% for the three months ended June 30, 2017 to 3.93% for the three months ended June 30, 2018.
During the second quarter, the Company sold 3.1 million common shares of beneficial interest through its “at-the-market” equity program (“ATM”) at an average sales price of $30.78 per share, resulting in net proceeds of $95.4 million, after deducting offering costs. As of June 30, 2018, the Company had 1.6 million shares available for issuance under the existing equity distribution agreements.
On July 23, 2018, the Company exercised its right to require redemption of the 58,400 preferred OP units that were originally issued on April 12, 2017. The redemption was satisfied through the issuance of 46,322 common OP units of the Company.
On May 30, 2018, the Company declared a dividend of $0.30 per common share. The dividend was paid on July 16, 2018 to common shareholders of record on July 2, 2018.
2018 Financial Outlook
“Based on our second quarter performance and ATM activity, we are improving the guidance midpoint for certain same-store and operating metrics while maintaining our estimated range of FFO per share, as adjusted,” commented Chief Financial Officer Tim Martin. “We remain focused on our strategy to fund external growth in a manner consistent with our long-term balance sheet objectives and investment grade credit rating.”
The Company is maintaining its previously issued 2018 estimates for fully diluted FFO per share, as adjusted, of between $1.61 and $1.65, and fully diluted earnings per share for the period of between $0.80 and $0.84. We have adjusted certain guidance assumptions to reflect second quarter results and ATM equity issuances. Due to uncertainty related to the timing and terms of transactions, the financial impact of any potential future investment activity is excluded from guidance. For 2018, the same store pool consists of 458 properties totaling 31.6 million square feet.

Supplemental operating and financial data as of June 30, 2018 is available on the Company’s corporate website under Investor Relations - Financial Information - Financial Reports.
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 secure storage space for residential and commercial customers. According to the 2018 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, loan procurement amortization expense – early repayment 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): gains from sale 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 operating income, 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.
