Extra Space will use the proceeds from the offering to partially fund its intended $1.4 billion acquisition of SmartStop Self Storage Inc., which operates 168 facilities in 21 states and Canada. If approved by SmartStop shareholders, Extra Space will claim ownership of 121 SmartStop facilities and assume third-party management of 43 others. The deal is expected to close before the end of the year.

The public-offering shares will be issued pursuant to an effective shelf-registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Extra Space currently owns or operates 1,106 self-storage properties in 35 states; Washington, D.C.; and Puerto Rico. The company’s properties comprise approximately 740,000 units and 81.8 million square feet of rentable space. The SmartStop portfolio will boost its footprint to nearly 95 million square feet.
