Company Description

CommonWealth REIT is a real estate investment trust, or REIT, which primarily owns office and industrial buildings located throughout the United States. The majority of our properties are office buildings located in suburban areas and central business districts, or CBDs, of major metropolitan markets. CWH was founded in 1986 and went public on the New York Stock Exchange as a REIT that owned healthcare related properties. In the 1990’s we transformed into an office REIT by selling healthcare assets and buying office buildings. During this time, we also formed four subsidiary REITs: Hospitality Properties Trust (HPT), a REIT that owns hotels and travel centers; Senior Housing Properties Trust (SNH), a REIT that primarily owns healthcare properties; Government Properties Income Trust (GOV), a REIT that primarily owns and leases office buildings that are majority leased to government tenants and Select Income REIT (SIR), a REIT that is focused on owning and investing in net leased, single tenant properties. HPT, SNH, GOV and SIR became separate public companies in 1995, 1999, 2009 and 2012 respectively. In July 2010, we changed our name to CommonWealth REIT from HRPT Properties Trust in order to avoid any lingering confusion that the company may be a healthcare focused REIT. We have been investment grade rated since 1994 and we are included in a number of financial indices, including the Russell 1000®, the MSCI US REIT Index, S&P REIT Composite Index and the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT United States Index

JSP seeks to add value primarily through securities selection. They apply a rigorous fundamental research process to identify common stocks of companies that they believe have long-term capital appreciation potential and are expected to grow faster than the local economy. Securities are generally selected on the basis of their potential for long-term capital growth. Using a bottom-up approach , the portfolio managers seek to select securities they believe have large end market potential or dominance of a profitable niche market, superior business models, and strong free cash flow generation that are attractively priced compared to the intrinsic value of the securities. They also consider a company's operational efficiencies, management's plans for capital allocation, and the company's shareholder orientation. JSP generally pursues an investment strategy of long-term capital growth. In pursuing this strategy, the firm primarily recommends equity securities of US and non-US issuers, although they may recommend a variety of securities and they do not limit recommendations to a particular type of security.
