Item 2.03

Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On May 11, 2021, Extra Space Storage LP (the “Issuer”), a Delaware limited partnership and subsidiary of Extra Space Storage Inc. (the “Company”), completed an underwritten public offering of $450,000,000 aggregate principal amount of its 2.550% Senior Notes due 2031 (the “Notes”).

The Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed (the “Guarantee”) by the Company, ESS Holdings Business Trust I, a Massachusetts business trust (“EHBT I”), and ESS Holdings Business Trust II, a Massachusetts business trust (“EHBT II” and, together with EHBT I and the Company, the “Guarantors”). The terms of the Notes are governed by an indenture, dated as of May 11, 2021 (the “Base Indenture”), by and among the Issuer, the Guarantors and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”), as supplemented by a first supplemental indenture, dated as of May 11, 2021 (the “First Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), by and among the Issuer, the Guarantors and the Trustee. The Indenture contains various restrictive covenants, including limitations on the ability of the Issuer and its subsidiaries to incur additional indebtedness and requirements to maintain a pool of unencumbered assets. Copies of the Base Indenture and the First Supplemental Indenture, including the form of Notes and the Guarantee, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference, are attached as Exhibits 4.1 and 4.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

The public offering price for the Notes was 99.849% of the principal amount thereof. The Notes are the Issuer’s senior unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment with all of the Issuer’s other existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness. However, the Notes are effectively subordinated in right of payment to all of the Issuer’s existing and future mortgage indebtedness and other secured indebtedness (to the extent of the collateral securing the same) and to all existing and future indebtedness and other liabilities, whether secured or unsecured, of the Issuer’s subsidiaries and of any entity the Issuer accounts for using the equity method of accounting and to all preferred equity not owned by the Issuer, if any, in its subsidiaries and of any entity the Issuer accounts for using the equity method of accounting. The Notes bear interest at 2.550% per annum. Interest is payable on June 1 and December 1 of each year, beginning December 1, 2021, until the maturity date of June 1, 2031.

The Issuer may redeem the Notes in whole at any time or in part from time to time, at the Issuer’s option and sole discretion, at a redemption price equal to the greater of:

 

   

100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed; and

 

   

a make-whole premium calculated in accordance with the Indenture;

plus, in each case, accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but not including, the applicable redemption date.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, on or after March 1, 2031 (three months prior to the maturity date of the Notes), the redemption price will be equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes being redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but not including, the applicable redemption date.

Certain events are considered events of default, which may result in the accelerated maturity of the Notes, including:

 

   

default for 30 days in the payment of any installment of interest under the Notes;

 

   

default in the payment of the principal amount or redemption price due with respect to the Notes, when the same becomes due and payable; provided, however, that a valid extension of the maturity of the Notes in accordance with the terms of the Indenture shall not constitute a default in the payment of principal;

 

   

failure by the Issuer or any of the Guarantors to comply with any of the Issuer’s or the Guarantors’ respective other agreements in the Notes or the Indenture with respect to the Notes upon receipt by the Issuer of notice of such default by the Trustee or by holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding and our failure to cure (or obtain a waiver of) such default within 60 days after it receives such notice;

 

2


   

failure to pay any debt (other than non-recourse debt) for monies borrowed by the Issuer, any Guarantor or any of their respective Significant Subsidiaries (as defined in the Indenture) in an outstanding principal amount in excess of $100.0 million at final maturity or upon acceleration after the expiration of any applicable grace period, which debt (other than non-recourse debt) is, or has become, the primary obligation of the Issuer or such Guarantor and is not discharged, or such default in payment or acceleration is not cured or rescinded, within 60 days after written notice to the Issuer from the Trustee (or to the Issuer and the Trustee from holders of at least twenty five percent (25%) in principal amount of the outstanding Notes); and

 

   

certain events in bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization, or court appointment of a receiver, liquidator or trustee of the Issuer, any Guarantor, or any Significant Subsidiary or all or substantially all of their respective property.

The description of the Indenture in this Current Report on Form 8-K is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Indenture.

 

Item 8.01

Other Events.

On May 5, 2021, the Issuer and the Guarantors entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and BofA Securities, Inc., as representatives of the several underwriters named therein (the “Underwriters”), with respect to an underwritten public offering of $450,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes. A copy of the Underwriting Agreement is attached as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. The description of the Underwriting Agreement in this Current Report on Form 8-K is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Underwriting Agreement.

On May 11, 2021, the Issuer completed such underwritten public offering of $450,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes, which are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Guarantors. The Notes were offered pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 12, 2021 (Registration No. 333-254236), as amended, a base prospectus included therein, dated May 4, 2021, and a prospectus supplement, dated May 5, 2021, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. In connection with the filing of the prospectus supplement, we are filing as Exhibit 5.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K an opinion of the Issuer’s counsel, Latham & Watkins LLP, regarding the validity of the Notes and related Guarantee, as Exhibit 5.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K an opinion of the Company’s counsel, Venable LLP, regarding certain Maryland law issues, and as Exhibit 5.3 to this Current Report on Form 8-K an opinion of EHBT I and EHBT II’s counsel, Rackemann, Sawyer & Brewster Professional Corporation, regarding certain Massachusetts law issues.

The Underwriters and their affiliates have engaged in, and may in the future engage in from time to time, investment banking and other commercial dealings in the ordinary course of business with the Company, for which they have received customary fees and commissions. In addition, affiliates of certain of the Underwriters are lenders under the Company’s senior unsecured lines of credit. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund potential acquisition opportunities, to repay amounts outstanding from time to time under its lines of credit, and for other general corporate and working capital purposes, and to the extent that the Company uses any of the net proceeds from the offering to repay indebtedness, such Underwriters or their affiliates will receive their proportionate share of any amount of the outstanding borrowings that is repaid with the net proceeds from the offering.
