Amendment Description On March 30, 2020, Global Self Storage, Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our”, or the “Company”) filed an Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 (the “Original Form 10-K”). This Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A (this “Amendment”) is being filed to correct the certifications of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, which were filed as Exhibits 31.1 and 31.2, respectively, to the Original Form 10-K, to include certain required language with respect to internal control over financial reporting which was inadvertently omitted from the Original Form 10-K. There has been no change to (i) the financial statements included in Part II, Item 8 hereof from those included in Part II, Item 8 of the Original Form 10-K, nor (ii) Part II, Item 9 hereof from Part II, Item 9 of the Original Form 10-K. Except as described above, this Amendment does not modify or update the disclosures presented in the Original Form 10-K or in the previously filed exhibits to the Original Form 10-K in any way. This Amendment speaks as of the date of the Original Form 10-K and does not reflect events occurring after the filing of the Original Form 10-K. As such, this Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Original Form 10-K, as well as any other filings made by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act subsequent to the filing of the Original Form 10-K.
