Blackstone's First REIT Nets $825M In IPO

Nov 1 2013 | 1:28pm ET

A Blackstone Group real-estate investment trust raised $825 million in its initial public offering this week.

Brixmoor Property Group's haul was the largest REIT IPO in 20 years. Blackstone did not sell any of its shares in the shopping-mall owner, and continued to own 73% of the REIT.

The Brixmoor is Blackstone's first REIT.

The huge sale adds to what has already been the biggest year for REIT IPOs in 10 years, and marks what could be a string of huge real-estate business deals for Blackstone. The private-equity giant is set to list hotel chains Extended Stay America and Hilton Worldwide Holdings this year, and next year may hold IPOs for its U.S. warehouse and single-family home-rental businesses.
