Management

  

Hospitality Properties Trust is managed by Reit Management & Research LLC (RMR®). RMR is a private company which was founded in 1986 to manage public investments in real estate. As of June 30, 2014, RMR oversaw one of the largest portfolios of publicly owned real estate in the United States, including approximately 1,230 properties located in 47 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Canada and Australia.

In addition to managing HPT, RMR 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 is also currently providing management services to Equity Commonwealth (formerly known as CommonWealth REIT), or EQC, a publicly traded REIT that primarily owns office properties. In addition, RMR 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, Sonesta International Hotels Corporation, is one of our hotel managers. Another affiliate of RMR, 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 and its affiliates had combined total gross assets of approximately $25 billion as of June 30, 2014.  RMR is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and an Energy Star Partner.

We believe that our relationships and arrangements with RMR provide a competitive advantage to HPT because of RMR's depth of management and experience in the real estate industry. We also believe RMR 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.
