Life Storage Phasing Out REIT’s Uncle Bob Brand

For Life Storage, Inc. (NYSE:LSI), the summer of 2016 has been anything but a time to slow down and relax.

Executives from Life Storage, the REIT formerly known as Sovran Self Storage, Inc., rang the New York Stock Exchange closing bell on Aug. 16 to commemorate the company’s recent rebranding and new stock ticker symbol.

Sovran changed its name to Life Storage following its acquisition of LifeStorage, LP, a privately owned self-storage operator, in July for approximately $ 1.3 billion.
