Financial report summary

  • Our business, operations, financial results and liquidity have been, and we expect will continue to be, materially and adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • We have taken several actions in an attempt to address the operating and financial impact from the COVID-19 pandemic, and we continue to assess and explore other actions, but those actions and plans may not be sufficient to avoid continued and potentially increased substantial harm to our business, operations and financial condition.
  • If the changes in business and consumer practices as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic continue and become long-term practices, our business would likely be materially and adversely impacted.
  • Adverse general economic conditions in the United States would likely negatively impact our business.
  • We have a high concentration of properties that are operated by Sonesta or TA.
  • Our investment activities have been significantly curtailed and we expect that to continue for an indefinite period.
  • We may not be able to sell properties, or our plan to sell may be delayed and could be changed or abandoned, and if we do not sell certain of those hotels by a certain agreed upon date, the manager of those hotels, or our management agreements with them, may change.
  • Some of our operators defaulted on their obligations to pay us minimum returns or requested relief from their obligations to pay us rent and returns in response to the economic conditions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and other operators may default on their obligations or we may receive additional similar requests for relief in the future.
  • We have a substantial amount of debt, we may incur additional debt and our debt leverage may remain at or above current levels for an indefinite period.
  • We may need additional waivers from our lenders or waivers from our noteholders in order to avoid defaulting under our credit agreement or public debt agreements and the terms of our current waivers under our credit agreement impose restrictions on our ability to pay distributions, make investments and certain capital improvements and any future waiver may impose similar or additional restrictions.
  • We may fail to comply with the terms of our credit agreement and our unsecured senior notes indentures and their supplements, which could adversely affect our business, would limit our ability to incur indebtedness and may prevent our making distributions to our shareholders.
  • Secured indebtedness exposes us to the possibility of foreclosure, which could result in the loss of our investment in certain of our subsidiaries or in a property or group of properties or other assets that secure that indebtedness.
  • Inherent risks in the hotel industry could impact Sonesta and our other operators and affect our business.
  • TA’s business is subject to substantial risks, which could adversely affect us.
  • We may be unable to grow our business by acquisitions of additional properties, and we might encounter unanticipated difficulties and expenditures relating to our acquired properties.
  • We are limited in our ability to operate our properties and are thus dependent on our operators.
  • Changes in market interest rates, including changes that may result from the expected phase out of LIBOR, may adversely affect us.
  • REIT distribution requirements and limitations on our ability to access reasonably priced capital may adversely impact our ability to carry out our business plan.
  • We face significant competition.
  • Substantially all of our net lease properties are leased to single tenants, which may subject us to greater risks of loss than if each of those properties had multiple tenants.
  • Our tenants may fail to successfully operate their businesses, which could adversely affect us.
  • Many of our tenants do not have credit ratings.
  • We may be unable to renew leases, lease vacant space or re-lease space as leases expire on favorable terms or at all.
  • Vacancies in a property could result in significant capital expenditures and illiquidity and reduce the value of the property.
  • Bankruptcy law may adversely impact us.
  • Ownership of real estate is subject to environmental risks and liabilities.
  • Ownership of real estate is subject to risks from adverse weather, natural disasters and climate events.
  • Insurance may not adequately cover our losses, and insurance costs may continue to increase.
  • We are subject to risks associated with our hotel managers’ employment of personnel.
  • We are a party to arbitration proceedings, which could adversely affect our financial results and/or distract our management.
  • Real estate construction and redevelopment creates risks.
  • RMR LLC and our hotel managers rely on information technology and systems in their respective operations, and any material failure, inadequacy, interruption or security failure of that technology or those systems could materially and adversely affect us.
  • We are dependent upon RMR LLC to manage our business and implement our growth strategy.
  • RMR LLC has broad discretion in operating our day to day business.
  • Our management structure and agreements and relationships with RMR LLC and RMR LLC’s and its controlling shareholder’s relationships with others may create conflicts of interest, or the perception of such conflicts, and may restrict our investment activities.
  • Our management agreements with RMR LLC were not negotiated on an arm’s length basis and their fee and expense structure may not create proper incentives for RMR LLC, which may increase the risk of an investment in our common shares.
  • The termination of our management agreements with RMR LLC may require us to pay a substantial termination fee, including in the case of a termination for unsatisfactory performance, which may limit our ability to end our relationship with RMR LLC.
  • Our management arrangements with RMR LLC may discourage a change of control of us.
  • Our business dealings with Sonesta and TA comprise a significant part of our business and operations and they may create conflicts of interest or the perception of such conflicts of interest.
  • We may not realize the benefits we expect from our ownership interest in Sonesta.
  • We are party to transactions with related parties that may increase the risk of allegations of conflicts of interest, and such allegations may impair our ability to realize the benefits we expect from these transactions.
  • We may be at an increased risk for dissident shareholder activities due to perceived conflicts of interest arising from our management structure and relationships.
  • Ownership limitations and certain provisions in our declaration of trust, bylaws and agreements, as well as certain provisions of Maryland law, may deter, delay or prevent a change in our control or unsolicited acquisition proposals.
  • Our rights and the rights of our shareholders to take action against our Trustees and officers are limited.
  • Shareholder litigation against us or our Trustees, officers, manager, other agents or employees may be referred to mandatory arbitration proceedings, which follow different procedures than in-court litigation and may be more restrictive to shareholders asserting claims than in-court litigation.
  • Our bylaws designate the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, Maryland as the sole and exclusive forum for certain actions and proceedings that may be initiated by our shareholders, which could limit our shareholders’ ability to obtain a judicial forum they deem favorable for disputes with us or our Trustees, officers, manager, agents or employees.
  • We may change our operational, financing and investment policies without shareholder approval and we may become more highly leveraged, which may increase our risk of default under our debt obligations.
  • Our failure to remain qualified for taxation as a REIT under the IRC or the loss of our other special tax statuses could have significant adverse consequences.
  • Distributions to shareholders generally will not qualify for reduced tax rates applicable to “qualified dividends.”
  • REIT distribution requirements could adversely affect us and our shareholders.
  • Even if we remain qualified for taxation as a REIT under the IRC, we may face other tax liabilities that reduce our cash flow.
  • If arrangements involving our TRSs fail to comply as intended with the REIT qualification and taxation rules, we may fail to qualify for taxation as a REIT under the IRC or be subject to significant penalty taxes.
  • Legislative or other actions affecting REITs could materially and adversely affect us and our shareholders.
  • We reduced our quarterly rate of distribution on our common shares to $0.01 per share and future distributions may remain at this level for an indefinite period or be eliminated and the form of payment could change.
  • Further issuances of debt or equity securities may adversely affect our shareholders.
  • We may use future debt leverage to pay distributions to our shareholders.
  • The Notes and the Guarantees are structurally subordinated to the payment of all indebtedness and other liabilities and any preferred equity of our subsidiaries that do not guarantee the 2025 Notes and 2027 Notes.
  • The Notes and the Guarantees are unsecured and effectively subordinated to all of our and the subsidiary guarantors’ existing and future secured indebtedness to the extent of the value of the assets securing such indebtedness.
  • Federal and state statutes allow courts, under specific circumstances, to void guarantees and require holders of notes to return payments received from guarantors.
  • There is no public market for the Notes, and one may not develop, be maintained or be liquid.
  • A downgrade in credit ratings could materially adversely affect the market price of the Notes and may increase our cost of capital.
  • Some or all of the Guarantees may be released automatically.
  • Redemption may adversely affect noteholders’ return on the Notes.
  • Changes in market conditions could adversely affect the value of our securities.
