Transcript THE NATIONAL POLITICAL CONVENTIONS Conventions and group business of all kinds constitute an important part of our business. Most noteworthy last year, of course, were the national political conventions which were held in Chicago in July. Both The Conrad Hilton and Palmer House were completely sold out during the conventions and enjoyed correspondingly high food and beverage sales. As you may know from watching the proceedings on television, both the Republicans and the Democrats chose The Conrad Hilton as their headquarters. Because it served as a base not only for the convention delegates, but for the 5,000 press, radio, television and newsreel men who combined to give the conventions the greatest news coverage in history, The Conrad Hilton became the focal point for the entire nation throughout the convention weeks. Not only was business very good during the convention period, but we believe the manner in which our staffs handled the needs of our guests earned lasting good-will which should be favorably reflected in operating results in the years ahead. MAYFLOWER MERGER Our efforts to acquire the minority interest in the Mayflower Hotel, Washington, D. C, which have been carried on since the purchase of control in 1946, were successfully concluded in December by the merger of Mayflower Hotel Corporation into the Corporation. The merger agreement, under which minority stockholders of the Mayflower were entitled to one share of Hilton common for each share of Mayflower, was approved by the stockholders of both corporations at meetings held last April. The Mayflower stockholders were also given the right to sell to Hilton Hotels Corporation the shares of Hilton common which they would receive at a price of $19.10 per share. A small group of Mayflower stockholders filed an action in the Delaware courts to enjoin the merger on the m grounds that they were not receiving fair value for their holdings and consummation of the merger was temporarily held up. In November, the Supreme Court of Delaware rendered its decision sustaining the fairness of the merger proposal and the merger was consumated shortly thereafter. As a result of these steps, the Mayflower Hotel has become a wholly owned property of your Corporation and its full earnings will inure to the benefit of the Hilton stockholders.
