Company prospects

Our outlook for the six months ahead to year end is subject to numerous macro-economic factors, both local and international. While the current domestic economic environment remains challenging, we are confident that our growth strategy, strong operating platform and market leading brand have positioned us to deliver sustainable growth in the South African market. Our balance sheet capacity and flexibility, and still low level of gearing, allow us to pursue selected development and acquisition opportunities which meet our investment criteria.



In addition, the acquisition of Storage King has provided Stor-Age with a strategic entry point into the UK self storage market off an established and scalable operating platform, which will allow us to grow our offshore portfolio. It also provides us with earnings diversification and a Rand hedge on a significant portion of future earnings from the acquisition.



The board anticipates the full year distribution growth to 31 March 2018 to be 11-12% higher than the prior year, subject to no further deterioration in the macro-economic environment.

(?Storage RSA?) in terms of which Stor-Age will acquire 100% of the shares in Storage RSA (?the Proposed Acquisition?).

(Official Notice)
The board of directors of Stor-Age (?the board?) announced that Stor-Age has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the shareholders of Storage RSA Investments (Pty) Ltd. (?Storage RSA?) in terms of which Stor-Age will acquire 100% of the shares in Storage RSA (?the Proposed Acquisition?). Shareholders will be advised of the detailed terms and conditions of the Proposed Acquisition as and when formal agreement has been reached between the parties in this regard.



About Storage RSA

Storage RSA was established in 1997, when it opened its first store in Somerset West, Cape Town. The Storage RSA group is the third largest self-storage operator in South Africa with a well-defined portfolio comprising seven high-quality properties, four of which are located in Cape Town with the remaining three being located in Gauteng.



Rationale for the Proposed Acquisition The board is of the view that the Proposed Acquisition is in line with Stor-Age?s stated strategy of pursuing value-added acquisitions in a fragmented industry, thereby consolidating its position as a dynamic brand in the South African market. Implementation of the Proposed Transaction will provide Stor-Age with considerable scale from both a balance sheet and trading perspective, with the introduction of additional high quality properties to the portfolio.



From a sector perspective, concluding the deal would solidify and significantly contribute to Stor-Age?s position as a significant self-storage operator and property fund in the South African market.



While there is some room for immediate value enhancement of the portfolio through Stor- Age?s sophisticated operations platform, the majority of this value enhancement will occur over time through key initiatives such as digital marketing, revenue management and scale in key markets.



Cautionary announcement

Shareholders are hereby advised to exercise caution when dealing in the company?s securities until a further announcement is made providing all relevant details in respect of the Proposed Acquisition.
