Explanation of Responses:
1. The 4,890 Class A common units of limited partner interest ("Class A OP Units") in NSA OP, LP (the "Partnership") are issuable upon the conversion of 4,890 long-term incentive plan units ("LTIP Units") in the Partnership. The LTIP Units were granted to the Reporting Person under the Issuer's 2024 Equity Incentive Plan, and are scheduled to vest on the earlier of: (i) May 16, 2025 or (ii) the calendar day immediately preceding the next annual meeting of shareholders, the date of which will be specified in a future proxy statement of the Issuer. Vested LTIP Units, after achieving parity with Class A OP Units, are eligible to be converted into Class A OP Units on a one-for-one basis upon the satisfaction of conditions set forth in the Partnership's agreement of limited partnership.
2. Upon conversion of such vested parity LTIP Units into Class A OP Units, the Reporting Person will have the right to cause the Partnership to redeem a portion of the Reporting Person's Class A OP Units for cash in an amount equal to the market value of an equivalent number of the Issuer's common shares of beneficial interest ("Shares"), or at the Issuer's option, Shares on a one-for-one basis, subject to certain adjustments.
3. N/A

5. The Reporting Person's total direct beneficial ownership following the reported transactions above is 32,535 Class A OP Units, which includes those Class A OP Units previously reported and the Class A OP Units reported herein (together with those other LTIP Units convertible into, or exchangeable for, such Class A OP Units as specified herein and reported in prior Forms 4). Following the reported transactions, the Reporting Person has total direct beneficial ownership in 8,422 vested LTIP Units and 4,890 unvested LTIP Units. The 32,535 Class A OP Units do not include non-derivative securities of the Reporting Person that were previously reported.
