The SVC Difference

Service Properties Trust (Nasdaq: SVC) is a publicly traded real estate investment trust (REIT). SVC invests in two asset categories: hotels and service-focused retail net lease properties, to provide diversification and stability to SVC’s cash flows.

Strong diverse portfolio of hotel assets:

  • SVC’s hospitality portfolio of 220 hotels is weighted toward extended stay properties, which generally have lower fixed costs and higher margins relative to full service hotels.
  • Typically in near-urban locations with solid demand drivers and in 46 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and Canada, SVC’s geographic diversity is structured to mitigate specific market risk.
  • SVC’s hotels are primarily operated by Sonesta International, one of the fastest growing hotel brands in the U.S., as well as Hyatt and Radisson.

Defensively positioned service-focused retail net lease properties:

  • SVC’s portfolio of 749 service-focused retail net lease properties totals over 13 million square feet and is well diversified by geography, tenant and industry.
  • Net lease is a naturally defensive asset class with long average lease terms and low capex requirements.
  • Exposure to service-based concepts aligns with consumer preferences and provides insulation from ecommerce disruption.

External manager provides deep management expertise and significant cost benefits:

  • SVC is externally managed by The RMR Group Inc. (Nasdaq: RMR), a leading U.S. alternative asset management company with over $41 billion of real estate assets under management.
  • RMR’s depth of management and experience in the real estate industry is a competitive advantage for SVC.
  • RMR provides management services to SVC at lower costs than for similar quality services if the company was self-managed.

Strong balance sheet:

  • Over $11 billion of diverse real estate assets.
  • Well-laddered debt maturities for senior unsecured notes.
  • SVC also owns approximately 34% of the shares of Sonesta Holdco Corporation.
