Nontraded REIT and BDC Sales Weaken in February 2017

March 13, 2017 | by James Sprow | Blue Vault


Equity capital raised by open nontraded REIT programs in February 2017, appear to have fallen 15% from January 2017, according to sales figures reported to Blue Vault by REIT sponsors. For the 26 effective nontraded REITs reporting, sales for all share classes, including DRIP proceeds, totaled $231 million in February 2017, compared to $359 million in December 2016, and $273 million in January. A very significant new entrant, Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc., was not included in the reported totals. In a 424B3 filing with the SEC dated February 13, Blackstone reported total sales from the offering totaling $362 million to date. The REIT broke escrow as of January 1, 2017, with total sales of $279 million, indicating that 2017 sales through February 13, would be an estimated $83 million, likely making Blackstone REIT the top program for sales thus far in 2017.

According to reports from NTR sponsors that do not include Blackstone REIT, the top five programs raising equity capital in February 2017, were:
