HILTON: GET THE REIT FOR (ALMOST) FREE

Takeaway: Sum of the Parts (OpCo + PropCo) = Higher Implied Share Price

CALL TO ACTION

Convergence of recent and future events makes a Hilton REIT spin-off event more likely. We have no edge on timing but this transformative event could increase shareholder value to $29-$34/share. Furthermore, a split would enhance both companies’ (OpCo and PropCo) growth prospects in addition to the obvious tax efficiency gains.
