Net income with respect to our self-storage operations increased by $79.4 million or 11.9% during the year ended December 31, 2011, when compared to the same period in 2010. This was due to a 6.6% increase in net operating income with respect to our Same Store Facilities due to increased revenues driven by higher occupancy and higher realized rents per occupied square foot, and a 43.3% increase in net operating income with respect to the Non Same Store Facilities, due primarily to the impact of the properties acquired in 2010 and 2011. This was partially offset by a $4.7 million increase in depreciation and amortization, due primarily to increased depreciation with respect to the facilities acquired in 2011 and 2010. Net income with respect to our self-storage operations increased by $0.8 million or 0.1% during the year ended December 31, 2010, when compared to the same period in 2009. This was due to a 0.2% increase in net operating income with respect to our Same Store Facilities due to increased revenues driven by higher occupancy partially offset by lower realized rents per occupied square foot, and a 39.6% increase in net operating income with respect to the Non Same Store Facilities, due primarily to the impact of the 42 facilities acquired in 2010. This was partially offset by a $14.6 million increase in depreciation and amortization, due primarily to increased amortization of tenant intangible assets with respect to the facilities acquired in 2010.

Equity in earnings from PSB decreased to $20.7 million in 2010 as compared to $35.1 million in 2009. This decrease was primarily the result of recognizing our pro rata share, $16.3 million, of the benefit that PSB recognized during 2009 as a result of PSB s preferred stock and preferred partnership unit repurchases. This decrease was partially offset by our pro rata share, $2.1 million, of PSB s gain on disposition of a property. Equity in earnings was also negatively impacted during 2010 compared to 2009 by our pro-rata share, $4.5 million, of reduced property net operating income due primarily to a 4.1% decline in the annualized realized rent per square foot for PSB s “Same Park” facilities for 2010, as compared to 2009.

Discontinued Operations: The net income of real estate facilities or other businesses that have been sold or otherwise disposed of, or that we expect to sell or dispose of within the next year based upon a committed plan of disposal, are reclassified and presented on our income statement for all periods as “discontinued operations.” In addition to the revenues and expenses of disposed self-storage facilities, discontinued operations includes $2.7 million, $7.8 million and $6.0 million in net gains on disposition of real estate facilities in 2011, 2010 and 2009, respectively, a $1.9 million impairment charge on real estate and intangible assets incurred in 2010, a $8.2 million impairment charge on intangible assets incurred in 2009, and $3.5 million in truck disposal expenses in 2009.
