As of June 30, 2019. The AUM for Blackstone, any business segment, or any specific fund, account or investment strategy presented herein may differ from any comparable AUM disclosure in other non-public or public sources (including public regulatory filings) due to, among other factors, methods of net asset value and capital commitment reporting, differences in categorizing certain funds and accounts within specific investment strategies and exclusion of certain funds and accounts, or any part of net asset value or capital commitment thereof, from the related AUM calculations. Certain of these differences are in some cases required by applicable regulation.
As of June 30, 2019. Includes GP and side-by-side commitments, as applicable.
With respect to all references to Blackstone’s prior operating history, please see the Summary of Risk Factors and the additional information below. Neither the Opportunistic Real Estate Equity Funds, Real Estate Debt Funds or Core+ Real Estate Equity Funds share BREIT’s investment objective of investing primarily in stabilized income-oriented commercial real estate in the United States with a primary objective of providing current income in the form of regular, stable cash distributions to achieve an attractive dividend yield. Specifically, the Opportunistic Real Estate Equity Funds invest in “opportunistic” real estate and real estate-related assets globally (which often are under managed assets and with higher potential for equity appreciation) and the Core+ Real Estate Equity Funds invest in “core+” real estate and real estate-related assets globally (which are generally substantially stabilized assets generating relatively stable cash flow), with a focus on office, multifamily, industrial and retail assets in major U.S. markets. The Real Estate Debt Funds primarily make real estate-related debt investments on an opportunistic basis and globally.
All figures reflect Blackstone Real Estate U.S. holdings as of June 30, 2019. There can be no assurance that any Blackstone fund or investment will achieve its objectives or avoid substantial losses. In addition to wholly-owned assets, figures include leased assets, collateral, assets managed through stakes in publicly-traded companies and assets owned through joint-ventures (reflected at 100%), as applicable. Multifamily includes other types of rental housing such as manufactured and student housing.
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:
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.
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 Inc. (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” are 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 June 30, 2019. 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).
