NEW YORK, Jan. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Self Storage, Inc. (NASDAQ:SELF), a real estate investment trust (REIT) that owns and operates self storage facilities, has completed the acquisition of two self storage facilities and a commercial property from Tuxis Corporation (OTC PINK:TUXS) for $6.9 million, which includes $5.925 million in cash and approximately $975,000 of Global Self Storage common stock. Tuxis is a self storage and real estate development company as well as a Global Self Storage affiliate.
The acquired properties, which opened under Global Self Storage management on January, 3, 2017, include a 185 unit, 31,000 square foot mixed traditional indoor, outdoor, and climate-controlled self storage facility located in Clinton, Connecticut, a 142 unit, 15,000 square foot all climate-controlled self storage facility located in Millbrook, New York, and an adjoining 1,875 square foot Millbrook commercial property.
Permits to re-develop and expand the Millbrook facility have been submitted to the local planning and zoning boards. Upon re-development and expansion approval and satisfaction of other conditions, including construction groundbreaking, the company is expected to make an additional $900,000 cash payment to Tuxis.
“The addition of these stores is expected to have an immediate accretive impact on our property revenues, net operating income and funds from operations,” said president and chief executive officer of Global Self Storage Mark C. Winmill. “The expansion opportunity at the Millbrook property has the potential to further increase the store’s revenues and net operating income.”
“The acquisition of these two stores marks our third and fourth in the past five months, and brings the total number of stores in our portfolio to 11. We continue to evaluate our existing stores for expansion potential and pursue acquisition opportunities in secondary and tertiary cities where we believe new development activity may be less concentrated compared to primary markets and urban centers.”
