CubeSmart is headquartered in Malvern, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia, and is one of the largest self-storage owners and operators in the United States, with over 800 locations nationwide and over 2,000 teammates in our stores and headquarters.

Self-storage is inherently an attractive business, characterized by a stable demand profile and attractive cash flow characteristics. Historically, self-storage has been the single best performing institutional real estate property type. The industry is widely fragmented, creating significant long-term growth opportunities for large operators, such as CubeSmart, that have significant scale and sophistication advantages over smaller operators, as well as broad access to capital to support continued industry consolidation.

Over the past five years, CubeSmart has grown significantly, acquiring approximately $1.5 billion in assets. In 2014, the Company produced more than $375 million in revenue, while generating a 19% increase in FFO (funds from operations) per share.
