These stores are located in Massachusetts, New York and Virginia. These properties are expected to open at various times between the third quarter of 2021 and the second quarter of 2022.

During the second quarter of 2021, the Company's joint venture, HVP IV, acquired five properties located in Connecticut (1) and Illinois (4) for $74.2 million. In total for the year through the date of this press release, HVP IV has acquired six properties for $92.7 million.

Additionally, HVP V has four properties located in New Jersey (3) and New York (1) under contract for $140.0 million. These acquisitions are expected to close in multiple tranches during the third and fourth quarters of 2021.

Third-Party Management

As of June 30, 2021, the Company's third-party management program included 718 stores totaling 48.2 million square feet. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company added 45 stores and 74 stores, respectively, to its third-party management platform.

Same-Store Results

The Company's same-store portfolio at June 30, 2021 included 511 stores containing approximately 35.7 million rentable square feet, or approximately 91.5% of the aggregate rentable square feet of the Company's 547 consolidated stores. These same-store properties represented approximately 90.6% of property NOI for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

Same-store physical occupancy as of June 30, 2021 and 2020 was 96.1% and 93.7%, respectively. Same-store revenues for the second quarter of 2021 increased 14.0% and same-store operating expenses increased 6.6% from the same quarter in 2020. Same-store NOI increased 17.6% from the second quarter of 2020 to the second quarter of 2021.

Operating Results

As of June 30, 2021, the Company's total consolidated portfolio included 547 stores containing 39.0 million rentable square feet and had physical occupancy of 94.5%.

Second Quarter 2021

Page 2

Revenues increased $35.4 million and property operating expenses increased $8.4 million in the second quarter of 2021, as compared to the same period in 2020. Increases in revenues were primarily attributable to increased occupancy and rental rates on our same-store portfolio as well as revenues generated from property acquisitions and recently opened development properties. Increases in property operating expenses were primarily attributable to a $3.2 million increase from the stores acquired or opened in 2020 and 2021 included in our non-same store portfolio as well as increased expenses from same-store properties, primarily related to property taxes and advertising.

Interest expense on loans increased from $18.7 million during the three months ended June 30, 2020 to $19.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021, an increase of $0.4 million. The increase was attributable to a higher amount of outstanding debt during the 2021 period partially offset by lower interest rates. To fund a portion of the Company's growth, the average outstanding debt balance increased $265.8 million to $2,246.5 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021 as compared to $1,980.7 million during the three months ended June 30, 2020. The weighted average effective interest rate on our outstanding debt for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 was 3.41% and 3.92%, respectively.

Financing Activity

During the three months ended June 30, 2021, the Company sold 1.0 million common shares of beneficial interest through its at-the-market ('ATM') equity program at an average sales price of $41.02 per share, resulting in net proceeds of $42.4 million, after deducting offering costs. As of June 30, 2021, the Company had 7.0 million shares available for issuance under the existing equity distribution agreements.

Quarterly Dividend

On May 12, 2021, the Company declared a dividend of $0.34 per common share. The dividend was paid on July 15, 2021 to common shareholders of record on July 1, 2021.

2021 Financial Outlook

'Strong demand trends through the spring and summer months have improved our outlook for the year, reflected in increased guidance ranges for both same-store and FFO per share metrics,' commented Chief Financial Officer Tim Martin. 'We continue to find attractive ways to grow the portfolio, investing in high quality stores both on balance sheet and with joint venture partners.'

The Company estimates that its fully diluted earnings per share for the year will be between $0.93 and $0.97 (previously $0.75 to $0.81), and that its fully diluted FFO per share, as adjusted, for 2021 will be between $1.99 and $2.03 (previously $1.80 to $1.86). Changes to the underlying assumptions for 2021 guidance are detailed in the table below. Due to uncertainty related to the timing and terms of transactions, the impact of any potential future speculative investment activity is excluded from guidance. For 2021, the same-store pool consists of 511 properties totaling 35.7 million square feet.

About CubeSmart

CubeSmart is a self-administered and self-managed real estate investment trust. The Company's self-storage properties are designed to offer affordable, easily accessible and secure storage space for residential and commercial customers. According to the 2021 Self-Storage Almanac, CubeSmart is one of the top three owners and operators of self-storage properties in the United States.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds from operations ('FFO') is a widely used performance measure for real estate companies and is provided here as a supplemental measure of operating performance. The April 2002 National Policy Bulletin of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (the 'White Paper'), as amended, defines FFO as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of real estate and related impairment charges, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

Management uses FFO as a key performance indicator in evaluating the operations of the Company's stores. Given the nature of its business as a real estate owner and operator, the Company considers FFO a key measure of its operating performance that is not specifically defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The Company believes that FFO is useful to management and investors as a starting point in measuring its operational performance because FFO excludes various items included in net income that do not relate to or are not indicative of its operating performance such as gains (or losses) from sales of real estate, gains from remeasurement of investments in real estate ventures, impairments of depreciable assets, and depreciation, which can make periodic and peer analyses of operating performance more difficult. The Company's computation of FFO may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs or real estate companies.

FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indication of the Company's performance. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP and is not a measure of liquidity or an indicator of the Company's ability to make cash distributions. The Company believes that to further understand its performance, FFO should be compared with its reported net income and considered in addition to cash flows computed in accordance with GAAP, as presented in its Consolidated Financial Statements.

FFO, as adjusted represents FFO as defined above, excluding the effects of acquisition related costs, gains or losses from early extinguishment of debt, and other non-recurring items, which the Company believes are not indicative of the Company's operating results.

The Company defines net operating income, which it refers to as 'NOI,' as total continuing revenues less continuing property operating expenses. NOI also can be calculated by adding back to net income (loss): interest expense on loans, loan procurement amortization expense, loss on early extinguishment of debt, acquisition related costs, equity in losses of real estate ventures, other expense, depreciation and amortization expense, general and administrative expense, and deducting from net income (loss): equity in earnings of real estate ventures, gains from sale of real estate, net, other income, gains from remeasurement of investments in real estate ventures and interest income. NOI is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Second Quarter 2021

Page 5

Management uses NOI as a measure of operating performance at each of its stores, and for all of its stores in the aggregate. NOI should not be considered as a substitute for net income, cash flows provided by operating, investing and financing activities, or other income statement or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes NOI is useful to investors in evaluating operating performance because it is one of the primary measures used by management and store managers to evaluate the economic productivity of the Company's stores, including the ability to lease stores, increase pricing and occupancy, and control property operating expenses. Additionally, NOI helps the Company's investors meaningfully compare the results of its operating performance from period to period by removing the impact of its capital structure (primarily interest expense on outstanding indebtedness) and depreciation of the basis in its assets from operating results.

(1) Protection plan revenue, which prior to 2021 had been included in our same-store and non same-store portfolio results, is now recorded in indirect property overhead. Prior periods have been adjusted for comparability.
(2) For comparability purposes, current year amounts related to the expiration of certain real estate tax abatements have been excluded from the same-store portfolio results ($60k and $120k for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively).
(3) Net operating income ('NOI') is a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measure. The above table reconciles same-store NOI to GAAP Net income.
(4) Realized annual rent per occupied square foot is computed by dividing rental income by the weighted average occupied square feet for the period.
(5) Includes property management income earned in conjunction with managed properties.
