Blackstone Statement to Investor on 1st February 2023

Blackstone

Dear Investor, 

Thank you for your investment in Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc. (“BREIT”) and entrusting Blackstone as a steward of your capital. 

BREIT continues to deliver strong performance and consistent, tax-advantaged distributions for our investors. We are proud that BREIT has generated a +12.5% annualized net return since inception (January 1, 2017) and an +8.4% net return in 2022, supported by +13% estimated cash flow growth despite a challenging environment. Further, BREIT has delivered consistent, tax-advantaged distributions since inception with a current 4.5% annualized distribution rate, equal to a 7.1% tax-equivalent yield. We built BREIT to outperform with a “70/80/90” portfolio: ~70% Sunbelt markets which are growing faster than the rest of the country; ~80% rental housing and industrial sector concentrations where fundamentals and cash flows are historically strong; and ~90% fixed rate debt that we locked in at low rates for the next 6.5 years, minimizing interest rate risk. 

Since BREIT’s formation six years ago, its Share Repurchase Plan (the “Repurchase Plan”) has allowed for repurchases up to 2% of net asset value (“NAV”) in any month and 5% of NAV in a calendar quarter, subject to BREIT’s majority independent Board of Directors’ broad repurchase discretion.8 This structure was designed to both prevent a liquidity mismatch and maximize long-term shareholder value. 

Given repurchase requests exceeded the monthly limit in January, BREIT fulfilled repurchase requests of $1.3B, which is equal to 2% of NAV in accordance with the Repurchase Plan. This represents 25% of the shares you submitted for repurchase. Repurchases were fulfilled at the December 31, 2022 NAV per share for your applicable share class. Under the Repurchase Plan, unfulfilled repurchase requests are not carried over automatically to the next month. Additionally, unless you elect to remain in the Distribution Reinvestment Plan (“DRIP”) all shares submitted for repurchase will be removed from the DRIP at this time. Please contact your financial representative if you would like to remain in the DRIP. 

If you would like to resubmit any unsatisfied portion of your current repurchase request for repurchase in the future, you will need to submit a new repurchase request for these shares prior to 4:00 p.m. (ET) on the second-to-last business day of the applicable month. Further details on BREIT’s Repurchase Plan and BREIT’s NAV per share are available at www.breit.com, or in its public filings, available on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website at www.sec.gov. 

We remain confident that BREIT’s portfolio can deliver strong performance and a tax-advantaged distribution yield. We believe we have selected the right sectors and geographies and positioned our balance sheet to continue to produce meaningful cash flow growth.4,5 In fact, BREIT’s portfolio experienced estimated YoY market rent growth of approximately 10% in December. Furthermore, Green Street Advisors, a widely respected real estate research firm, is forecasting strong cash flow growth in 2023 for publicly traded REITs in our largest sectors. 

This is consistent with our own estimates and supported by steep declines in future supply expectations, with housing permits down 25% from their 2022 peak and a 42% decline in construction starts in the industrial sector quarter over quarter. Market rents in our major sectors are 18% above BREIT’s in-place rents, and we expect to pursue this growth potential as leases expire.13 Today more than ever, manager selection is critical, and BREIT benefits from Blackstone’s 30+ year track record successfully navigating market cycles and proprietary real-time market insights as the largest owner of commercial real estate globally. Generating strong performance remains our top objective. 

Sincerely,
Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust

In December, up to 0.3% of NAV will be eligible for repurchase to total 5% of NAV for the quarter.
