The properties are in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, and Extra Space will continue to handle daily operation.
HSRE will contribute approximately $62.4 million in cash to the JV in return for an 80 percent ownership interest. The JV will assume approximately $213 million of debt, secured by the properties. Extra Space will receive approximately $62.4 million in cash and a 20 percent ownership interest.

Extra Space has also repurchased approximately $43 million principal amount of exchangeable senior notes due in 2027 for approximately $36.3 million.
