BREIT’s advisor is compensated via management fees and a performance participation allocation based on total return. BREIT’s advisor does not receive acquisition, disposition, financing or development fees.
*BREIT's per share NAV is based on the value of real estate assets it owns and is not subject to market pricing forces as are the shares of public equities. The value of BREIT's underlying investments may fluctuate and may be worth less than BREIT initially paid for them. BREIT shares are significantly less liquid than shares of publicly traded equities and are not immune to fluctuations.

There is no assurance we will pay distributions in any particular amount, if at all. Any distributions we make will be at the discretion of our board of directors. We may fund any distributions from sources other than cash flow from operations, including, without limitation, the sale of assets, borrowings, return of capital or offering proceeds (including from sales of our common stock or Operating Partnership units to the Special Limited Partner, an affiliate of Blackstone), and we have no limits on the amounts we may pay from such sources.
There is no guarantee that BREIT will be diversified. Diversification does not eliminate risk or guarantee a profit.
There can be no assurance that BREIT will achieve its objective or avoid losses.
Blackstone will also face conflicts of interest as a result of, among other things, the allocation of investment opportunities among us and other Blackstone accounts, the allocation of time of its investment professionals and the substantial fees that we will pay to Blackstone.
Terms summarized herein are for informational purposes and qualified in their entirety by the more detailed information set forth in BREIT’s prospectus. You should read the prospectus carefully prior to making an investment.
This is the amount currently registered. We may register additional shares in the future.
We may offer shares at a price that we believe reflects the NAV per share of such stock more appropriately than the prior month’s NAV per share, including by updating a previously disclosed offering price, in cases where we believe there has been a material change (positive or negative) to our NAV per share since the end of the prior month.
Select broker-dealers may have different suitability standards, may not offer all share classes, and/or may offer BREIT at a higher minimum initial investment. With respect to Class T shares, the amount of upfront selling commissions and dealer manager fees may vary at select broker-dealers, provided that the sum will not exceed 3.5% of the transaction price. The financial advisor and dealer stockholder servicing fee for Class T shares may also vary at select broker-dealers, provided that the sum of such fees will always equal 0.85% per annum of the aggregate NAV.
Key Term Definitions:
Performance participation allocation: The Special Limited Partner will hold a performance participation interest in the Operating Partnership that entitles it to receive an allocation from our Operating Partnership equal to 12.5% of the Total Return, subject to a 5% Hurdle Amount and a High Water Mark (each term as defined below), with a catch-up. Such allocation will be annually and accrue monthly.
“Total Return” for any year shall equal the sum of: i) all distributions accrued or paid (without duplication) on the Operating Partnership units outstanding at the end of the year since the beginning of the year plus ii) the change in aggregate NAV of such units since the beginning of the year, before giving effect to (x) changes resulting solely from the proceeds of issuances of Operating Partnership units, (y) any allocation/accrual to the performance participation interest and (z) applicable stockholder servicing fee expenses. For the avoidance of doubt, the calculation of Total Return will (i) include any appreciation or depreciation in the NAV of units issued during the year but (ii) exclude the proceeds from the initial issuance of such units.
“Hurdle Amount” for any year means that amount that results in a 5% annualized internal rate of return on the NAV of the Operating Partnership units outstanding at the beginning of the year and all Operating Partnership units issued since the beginning of the year, taking into account the timing and amount of all distributions accrued or paid (without duplication) on all such units and all issuances of Operating Partnership units over the year.
“Loss Carryforward Amount” shall initially equal zero and shall cumulatively increase by the absolute value of any negative annual Total Return and decrease by any positive annual Total Return, provided that the Loss Carryforward Amount shall at no time be less than zero. The effect of the Loss Carryforward Amount is that the recoupment of past annual Total Return losses will offset the positive annual Total Return for purposes of the calculation of the Special Limited Partner’s performance participation. This is referred to as a “High Water Mark.”
Summary of Risk Factors
Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc. (“BREIT”) is a non-traded REIT that seeks to invest in stabilized commercial real estate properties diversified by sector with a focus on providing current income. This investment involves a high degree of risk. You should purchase these securities only if you can afford the complete loss of your investment. You should read the prospectus carefully for a description of the risks associated with an investment in Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust. Some of these risks include but are not limited to the following:
BREIT has a limited operating history and there is no assurance that we will achieve our investment objectives.
This is a “blind pool” offering. We have only made limited investments to date and you will not have the opportunity to evaluate our future investments before we make them.
Since there is no public trading market for shares of our common stock, repurchase of shares by us will likely be the only way to dispose of your shares. Our share repurchase plan provides stockholders with the opportunity to request that we repurchase their shares on a monthly basis, but we are not obligated to repurchase any shares and may choose to repurchase only some, or even none, of the shares that have been requested to be repurchased in any particular month in our discretion. In addition, repurchases will be subject to available liquidity and other significant restrictions. Further, our board of directors may modify, suspend or terminate our share repurchase plan if it deems such action to be in our best interest and the best interest of our stockholders. As a result, our shares should be considered as having only limited liquidity and at times may be illiquid.
We cannot guarantee that we will make distributions, and if we do we may fund such distributions from sources other than cash flow from operations, including, without limitation, the sale of assets, borrowings, return of capital or offering proceeds, and we have no limits on the amounts we may pay from such sources.
The purchase and repurchase price per share for each class of common stock will vary and will generally equal our prior month’s net asset value (“NAV”) per share, as determined monthly, plus applicable upfront selling commissions and dealer manager fees. We may offer shares at a price that we believe reflects the NAV per share of such stock more appropriately than the prior month’s NAV per share in cases where we believe there has been a material change (positive or negative) to our NAV per share since the end of the prior month.
We have no employees and are dependent on BX REIT Advisors L.L.C. (the “Advisor”) to conduct our operations. The Advisor will face conflicts of interest as a result of, among other things, the allocation of investment opportunities among us and other Blackstone accounts, the allocation of time of its investment professionals and the substantial fees that we will pay to the Advisor.
This is a “best efforts” offering. If we are not able to raise a substantial amount of capital in the near term, our ability to achieve our investment objectives could be adversely affected.
On acquiring shares, you will experience immediate dilution in the net tangible book value of your investment.
There are limits on the ownership and transferability of our shares.
If we fail to qualify as a REIT and no relief provisions apply, our NAV and cash available for distribution to our stockholders could materially decrease.
We do not own the Blackstone name, but we are permitted to use it as part of our corporate name pursuant to a trademark license agreement with an affiliate of The Blackstone Group L.P. (together with its affiliates, “Blackstone”). Use of the name by other parties or the termination of our trademark license agreement may harm our business.
While BREIT’s investment strategy is to invest in stabilized commercial real estate properties diversified by sector with a focus on providing current income to investors, an investment in BREIT is not an investment in fixed income. Fixed income has material differences from an investment in a non-traded REIT, including those related to vehicle structure, investment objectives and restrictions, risks, fluctuation of principal, safety, guarantees or insurance, fees and expenses, liquidity and tax treatment.
We intend to continue to qualify as a REIT for U.S. federal income tax purposes. However, if we fail to qualify as a REIT and no relief provisions apply, our NAV and cash available for distribution to our stockholders could materially decrease.
The acquisition of investment properties may be financed in substantial part by borrowing, which increases our exposure to loss. The use of leverage involves a high degree of financial risk and will increase the exposure of the investments to adverse economic factors.
Investing in commercial real estate assets involves certain risks, including but not limited to: tenants’ inability to pay rent; increases in interest rates and lack of availability of financing; tenant turnover and vacancies; and changes in supply of or demand for similar properties in a given market.
BREIT will directly own private real estate assets. Any references to “private real estate” and “direct ownership” is referring to the BREIT strategy. Individual investors will own shares of common stock in BREIT as opposed to direct ownership of private, non-traded real estate assets.
Numerical data is approximate and as of December 31, 2017. The words “we”, “us”, and “our” refer to Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc., together with its consolidated subsidiaries, including BREIT Operating Partnership L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”), a Delaware limited partnership of which we are the general partner, unless the context requires otherwise. Numerical data relating to Blackstone includes activities of Blackstone Real Estate’s public and private portfolio companies (unless otherwise noted).
