Hospitality Properties Trust is managed by Reit Management & Research LLC, or RMR LLC. RMR LLC was founded in 1986 to manage public investments in real estate. As of June 30, 2015, RMR LLC managed a large portfolio of publicly owned real estate, including over 1,200 properties located in 48 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, Canada and Australia.

In addition to managing HPT, RMR LLC also manages Senior Housing Properties Trust (SNH), a publicly traded REIT that owns healthcare, senior living and medical office buildings, Government Properties Income Trust (GOV), a publicly traded REIT that primarily owns and leases office buildings that are majority leased to government tenants and Select Income REIT (SIR), a publicly traded REIT that is focused on owning and investing in net leased, single tenant properties. RMR LLC also provides management services to Five Star Quality Care, Inc., a senior living and healthcare services company which is a tenant of SNH and manages certain of SNH's senior living communities, and to Travel Centers of America, LLC, an operator of travel centers which is our largest tenant. An affiliate of RMR LLC, Sonesta International Hotels Corporation, is one of our hotel managers, and another affiliate of RMR LLC, RMR Advisors LLC (formerly RMR Advisors, Inc.), is the investment manager of publicly offered mutual funds, which principally invests in securities of unaffiliated real estate companies. The public companies managed by RMR LLC and its affiliates had combined total gross assets of over $22 billion as of June 30, 2015.  RMR LLC is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and an Energy Star Partner.

We believe that our relationships and arrangements with RMR LLC provide a competitive advantage to HPT because of RMR LLC's depth of management and experience in the real estate industry. We also believe RMR LLC is able to provide management services to HPT at costs that are lower than we would have to pay for comparable services. HPT’s corporate expenses have historically been lower than the average corporate expenses for many other hospitality REITs as measured both as a percentage of gross revenues and as a percentage of gross assets.
