Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On September 9, 2020, Life Storage, Inc. (the “Company”), Life Storage LP (the “Operating Partnership”) and Life Storage Holdings, Inc., the general partner of the Operating Partnership (the “General Partner”), entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Wells Fargo Securities, LLC and U.S. Bancorp Investments, Inc., as representatives of the several underwriters (the “Underwriters”), relating to the public offering (the “Offering”) by the Operating Partnership of $400 million aggregate principal amount of the Operating Partnership’s 2.200% senior notes due 2030 (the “Notes”). The Notes will be issued at 99.524% of the principal amount due. Interest on the Notes is payable semi-annually on April 15 and October 15 of each year, commencing April 15, 2021. The Notes will mature on October 15, 2030. The Notes will be fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Company (the “Guarantee”). The Offering is expected to close on September 23, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions. Net proceeds to the Operating Partnership from the Offering, before expenses, will be approximately $395.5 million.
The Operating Partnership intends to use net proceeds from the Offering to pay in full its $100 million unsecured term note maturing August 5, 2021, along with accrued interest and prepayment fees related thereto estimated to be approximately $5 million and amounts outstanding on its unsecured line of credit which matures on March 10, 2023, with the balance being used for future acquisitions of self storage properties and for general corporate purposes. Affiliates of Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, U.S. Bancorp Investments, Inc., Truist Securities
,
Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., HSBC Securities (USA) Inc., and M&T Securities, Inc. are lenders under the unsecured line of credit of the Operating Partnership and the Company. Upon the application of a portion of the net proceeds from the Offering to repay amounts outstanding under the unsecured line of credit, each such lender will receive its proportionate share of the amounts being repaid.
The Company, the Operating Partnership and the General Partner made certain customary representations, warranties and covenants in the Underwriting Agreement and also agreed to indemnify the Underwriters against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, which is being filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report on Form

which became effective upon filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on June 14, 2018.
