OPERATING HIGHLIGHTS

During the third quarter, the Corporation continued to take steps to solidify the foundation of its three newly formed operating platforms - self storage facilities, private equity funds and natural gas assets. Those steps included enhancing the management teams, implementing operational, accounting and reporting systems and developing a solid pipeline of new opportunities.

Real Storage Private Trust (44.78% owned) continued to show operational improvements across its portfolio of 17 self-storage facilities containing 648,978 square feet of rentable area and one development site. The five properties located in western Canada, which were acquired in February, 2011, performed exceptionally well and are expected to reach stabilized occupancy levels in 2012. The majority of the western facilities are newly constructed and in the initial lease-up stage. Overall, occupancy across the portfolio averaged 81% for the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to 75% for the same period in 2011. Operating margins for the three months ended September 30, 2012 increased to 57%, up from 54% achieved for the comparable period in 2011.

On the private equity front, Network Capital Management Inc. (50% owned) successfully closed its $22.3 million 2012 fund. Network's committed funds under management now total $50 million and the majority of Network's available capital has been successfully deployed in a strong mix of junior oil and gas and service companies. Wilmington committed $8 million of capital to the 2012 fund.

The natural gas assets owned through the Shackleton Partnership (59% owned) have proven to be of high quality and present good opportunities for growth and future development once we reach a more favorable natural gas pricing environment. The weighted average price realized during the quarter was $2.28 per mcf and operating netbacks averaged $0.81 per mcf. Natural gas production volumes amounted to 4,911 mcf per day (818 boepd) for the third quarter. Estimated proved plus probable reserves attributable to the Shackleton assets as evaluated by GLJ Petroleum Consultants Ltd. with an effective date of December 31, 2011 were 24,392 MMcf. The outlook for natural gas pricing has improved significantly and a better pricing environment will be beneficial to the future operating performance of the Shackleton assets. Of its 2013 production, approximately 25% has been hedged at $3.65 per mcf.

OUTLOOK

The Corporation believes that the foundation for achieving future growth through its three operating platforms - the Real Storage Private Trust, Network Capital Management Inc. and the Shackleton Partnership - are now firmly in place. In the years ahead, the Corporation expects to add scale to these operating platforms, improve valuations and earn attractive cash flow and total returns for shareholders.

Boe Conversion: Certain natural gas volumes have been converted to barrels of oil equivalent ("boe") whereby 6,000 cubic feet (mcf) of natural gas is equal to 1 barrel (bbl) of oil. This conversion ratio (6:1) is based on an energy equivalency conversion applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
