WARNING REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains forward looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other securities laws. These forward-looking statements are based upon SVC’s present beliefs and expectations, but these statements and the implications of these statements are not guaranteed to occur and may not occur for various reasons, some of which are beyond SVC’s control. For example, this press release states that SVC’s dividend rate will be $0.01/share per quarter or $0.04/share per year. A possible implication of this statement is that SVC will continuously pay quarterly dividends of $0.01/share per quarter or $0.04/share per year in the future. SVC’s dividend rates are set and reset from time to time by SVC’s Board of Trustees. The SVC Board considers many factors when setting dividend rates including SVC’s historical and projected income, normalized funds from operations, cash available for distribution, the then current and expected needs and availability of cash to pay SVC’s obligations and fund SVC’s investments, distributions which may be required to be paid to maintain SVC’s tax status as a real estate investment trust and other factors deemed relevant by SVC’s Board of Trustees in its discretion. Accordingly, future dividend rates may be increased or decreased and there is no assurance as to the rate at which future dividends will be paid. For these reasons, among others, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements in this press release.
