WARNING REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This press release contains statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other securities laws. Also, whenever we use words such as "believe", "expect", "anticipate", "intend", "plan", "estimate", "will", "may" and negatives or derivatives of these or similar expressions, HPT is making forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based upon HPT’s present intent, beliefs or expectations, but forward-looking statements are not guaranteed to occur and may not occur for various reasons, some of which are beyond HPT’s control. For example:
- This press release states that the closing of the notes offerings is expected to occur on September 18, 2019. The closing of these offerings is subject to various conditions and contingencies as are customary in underwriting agreements in the United States. If these conditions are not satisfied or the specified contingencies do not occur, these offerings may not close.
- HPT’s current intent is to use the proceeds from the offerings of the notes to finance, in part, the SMTA transaction, and, pending the consummation of the SMTA transaction and such use of proceeds, HPT may repay future amounts outstanding under its revolving credit facility or use the net proceeds for general business purposes, or HPT may invest the net proceeds from these offerings in short term investments, some or all of which may not be investment grade rated; the receipt and use of the proceeds is dependent on the closing of these offerings and may not occur; further the SMTA transaction is subject to certain customary conditions and HPT cannot be sure that such conditions will be satisfied. Accordingly, the SMTA transaction may not close or the terms of the SMTA transaction may change.
For these reasons, among others, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon forward-looking statements.
The information contained in HPT’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, including under “Risk Factors” in HPT’s periodic reports, or incorporated therein identifies other important factors that could cause HPT’s actual results to differ materially from those in its forward-looking statements. HPT’s filings with the SEC are available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.
Except as required by law, HPT does not intend to update or change any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
