Y-O-Y NTR Capital Raise Comparisons

Year-over-year comparisons show capital raised by reporting nontraded REITs was up 197%.


Sales by Blackstone REIT and Starwood REIT Estimated

Although neither Blackstone REIT nor Starwood REIT are reporting monthly sales to Blue Vault, 424b3 SEC filings by these two continuously offered nontraded REITs give data on the status of their public offerings. Using these data, we can estimate their common stock issuances both from the offerings and DRIP reinvestments. By far the largest nontraded REIT is Blackstone, raising a large majority of all capital being raised in the sector. The charts below show the shares issued in their offering. Because the capital raised is reported only in billions, the monthly totals are inexact, but the overall magnitude of their capital raise is evident. For the reports filed 2/14/22 through 3/11/22, Blackstone REIT raised approximately $2.4 billion through the issuance of approximately 220 million shares. For reports dated 2/11/22 through 3/15/22, Starwood REIT issued over 28.5 million shares, raising approximately $716 million.


Nontraded BDC Capital Raise thru March 2022

Only one nontraded BDC was raising funds and reported to Blue Vault in March 2022. Blue Owl Capital Inc. (formerly Owl Rock Capital Advisors) had $482.7 million in equity capital raised in March 2022, up 39.7% from the February total of $345.4 million. Blackstone’s nontraded BDC was also raising capital but did not report its sales to Blue Vault. Quarterly capital raise for the four reporting nontraded BDCs are shown below.
