Transcript national, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of your Corporation, has been actively engaged for the past several years in providing superior hotel facilities in key cities outside of the United States. It is presently operating two hotels, the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and the Castellana Hilton in Madrid, Spain. Seven hotels are now planned or being built in various foreign nations. The next to open will be the Istanbul Hilton in Istanbul, Turkey. This hotel, which is being constructed and will be owned by an agency of the Turkish government, will be operated by Hilton Hotels International under a contract similar to that in effect for the Caribe Hilton and the Castellana Hilton. Under the terms of these contracts, the hotels are built and owned by the governments or business interests of the countries, with Hilton Hotels International supplying the work ing capital and management skill, usually retaining one-third of the operating profit. This arrangement has the advantage of limiting risks and providing opportunities for substantial profits. Hotels are also under construction in Mexico City and Acapulco, Mexico, in Havana, Cuba, and in Cairo, Egypt. During 1954 contracts were signed for new hotels to be constructed in Montreal, Canada, and in Rome, Italy. The Montreal transaction is being carried out by Hilton of Canada, Ltd., a new wholly owned subsidiary of Hilton Hotels International, Inc., which, on November 8, 1954, entered into an agreement with Canadian National Railway Company and its wholly owned subsidiary, Canadian National Hotels, Limited, to operate the new $24,000,000 Queen Elizabeth Hotel to be constructed in Montreal by Canadian National Railway Company. This hotel is scheduled for completion in 1957. An agreement also was signed in November for operation by Hilton Hotels International of the Albergo dei Cava- lieri Hilton, a new $7,000,000 hotel to be built in Rome, Italy, and finished in 1957. These hotels will add another 2,450 rooms to the total operated by Hilton Hotels Corporation at home and abroad. 9
