false2021Q10001393818--12-31During the period presented, Blackstone also had one share outstanding of each of Series I and Series II preferred stock, with par value of each less than one cent.Unobservable inputs were weighted based on the fair value of the investments included in the range.Fair value is determined by broker quote and these notes would be classified as Level II within the fair value hierarchy.Dividends declared reflects the calendar date of the declaration for each dividend.The split of clawback between Blackstone Holdings and Current and Former Personnel is based on the performance of individual investments held by a fund rather than on a fund by fund basis.This adjustment removes Unrealized Performance Revenues on a segment basis.This adjustment removes Unrealized Principal Investment Income (Loss) on a segment basis.This adjustment removes Interest and Dividend Revenue on a segment basis.This adjustment removes Other Revenue on a segment basis. For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, Other Revenue on a GAAP basis was $60.3 million and $138.2 million, and included $59.5 million and $136.9 million of foreign exchange gains (losses), respectively.This adjustment reverses the effect of consolidating Blackstone Funds, which are excluded from Blackstone’s segment presentation.

As a result of Pátria’s IPO in January 2021, equity method has been discontinued and there will no longer be amortization of intangibles associated with the investment.This adjustment removes Transaction-Related Charges, which are excluded from Blackstone’s segment presentation.

In this report, references to “Blackstone,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our” refer to The Blackstone Group Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries.
Effective February 26, 2021, Blackstone effectuated changes to rename its Class A common stock as “common stock,” and to reclassify its Class B and Class C common stock into a new “Series I preferred stock” and “Series II preferred stock,” respectively (the “share reclassification”). Each new stock has the same rights and powers of its predecessor. All references to common stock, Series I preferred stock and Series II preferred stock prior to the share reclassification refer to Class A, Class B and Class C common stock, respectively. See “Part I. Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Organizational Structure.”
“Series I Preferred Stockholder” refers to Blackstone Partners L.L.C., the holder of the sole outstanding share of our Series I preferred stock.
“Series II Preferred Stockholder” refers to Blackstone Group Management L.L.C., the holder of the sole outstanding share of our Series II preferred stock.

Table of Contents
“Blackstone Funds,” “our funds” and “our investment funds” refer to the funds and other vehicles that are managed by Blackstone. “Our carry funds” refers to funds managed by Blackstone that have commitment-based multi-year drawdown structures that pay carry on the realization of an investment.
We refer to our flagship corporate private equity funds as Blackstone Capital Partners (“BCP”) funds, our energy-focused private equity funds as Blackstone Energy Partners (“BEP”) funds, our core private equity funds as Blackstone Core Equity Partners (“BCEP”), our opportunistic investment platform that invests globally across asset classes, industries and geographies as Blackstone Tactical Opportunities (“Tactical Opportunities”), our secondary fund of funds business as Strategic Partners Fund Solutions (“Strategic Partners”), our infrastructure-focused funds as Blackstone Infrastructure Partners (“BIP”), our life sciences private investment platform, Blackstone Life Sciences (“BXLS”), our growth equity investment platform, Blackstone Growth (“BXG”), our multi-asset investment program for eligible high net worth investors offering exposure to certain of our key illiquid investment strategies through a single commitment as Blackstone Total Alternatives Solution (“BTAS”) and our capital markets services business as Blackstone Capital Markets (“BXCM”).
We refer to our real estate opportunistic funds as Blackstone Real Estate Partners (“BREP”) funds and our real estate debt investment funds as Blackstone Real Estate Debt Strategies (“BREDS”) funds. We refer to our real estate investment trusts as “REITs,” to Blackstone Mortgage Trust, Inc., our NYSE-listed REIT, as “BXMT,” and to Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc., our non-listed REIT, as “BREIT.” We refer to our real estate funds which target substantially stabilized assets in prime markets, as Blackstone Property Partners (“BPP”) funds. We refer to BPP and BREIT collectively as our Core+ real estate strategies.
“Our hedge funds” refers to our funds of hedge funds, hedge funds, certain of our real estate debt investment funds, including a registered investment company, and certain other credit-focused funds which are managed by Blackstone.
We refer to our business development companies as “BDCs,” to Blackstone Private Credit Fund as “BCRED” and to Blackstone Secured Lending Fund as “BXSL.”
“BIS” refers to Blackstone Insurance Solutions, which partners with insurers to deliver bespoke, capital-efficient investments tailored to each insurer’s needs and risk profile.
We refer to our separately managed accounts as “SMAs.”
“Assets Under Management” refers to the assets we manage. Our Assets Under Management equals the sum of:
 
  (a)
the fair value of the investments held by our carry funds and our side-by-side and co-investment entities managed by us plus the capital that we are entitled to call from investors in those funds and entities pursuant to the terms of their respective capital commitments, including capital commitments to funds that have yet to commence their investment periods,
 
  (b)
the net asset value of (1) our hedge funds, real estate debt carry funds, BPP, certain co-investments managed by us, certain credit-focused funds, and our Hedge Fund Solutions drawdown funds (plus, in each case, the capital that we are entitled to call from investors in those funds, including commitments yet to commence their investment periods), and (2) our funds of hedge funds, our Hedge Fund Solutions registered investment companies, and BREIT,
 
  (c)
the invested capital, fair value or net asset value of assets we manage pursuant to separately managed accounts,
 
  (d)
the amount of debt and equity outstanding for our collateralized loan obligations (“CLO”) during the reinvestment period,
 
  (e)
the aggregate par amount of collateral assets, including principal cash, for our CLOs after the reinvestment period,
 
3

Table of Contents
  (f)
the gross or net amount of assets (including leverage where applicable) for our credit-focused registered investment companies,
 
  (g)
the fair value of common stock, preferred stock, convertible debt, term loans or similar instruments issued by BXMT, and
 
  (h)
borrowings under and any amounts available to be borrowed under certain credit facilities of our funds.
Our carry funds are commitment-based drawdown structured funds that do not permit investors to redeem their interests at their election. Our funds of hedge funds, hedge funds, funds structured like hedge funds and other open-ended funds in our Real Estate, Hedge Fund Solutions and Credit & Insurance segments generally have structures that afford an investor the right to withdraw or redeem their interests on a periodic basis (for example, annually or quarterly), typically with 30 to 95 days’ notice, depending on the fund and the liquidity profile of the underlying assets. Investment advisory agreements related to certain separately managed accounts in our Hedge Fund Solutions and Credit & Insurance segments, excluding our BIS separately managed accounts, may generally be terminated by an investor on 30 to 90 days’ notice.
“Fee-Earning Assets Under Management” refers to the assets we manage on which we derive management fees and/or performance revenues. Our Fee-Earning Assets Under Management equals the sum of:
 
  (a)
for our Private Equity segment funds and Real Estate segment carry funds, including certain BREDS and Hedge Fund Solutions funds, the amount of capital commitments, remaining invested capital, fair value, net asset value or par value of assets held, depending on the fee terms of the fund,
 
  (b)
for our credit-focused carry funds, the amount of remaining invested capital (which may include leverage) or net asset value, depending on the fee terms of the fund,
 
  (c)
the remaining invested capital or fair value of assets held in co-investment vehicles managed by us on which we receive fees,
 
  (d)
the net asset value of our funds of hedge funds, hedge funds, BPP, certain co-investments managed by us, certain registered investment companies, BREIT, and certain of our Hedge Fund Solutions drawdown funds,
 
  (e)
the invested capital, fair value of assets or the net asset value we manage pursuant to separately managed accounts,
 
  (f)
the net proceeds received from equity offerings and accumulated distributable earnings of BXMT, subject to certain adjustments,
 
  (g)
the aggregate par amount of collateral assets, including principal cash, of our CLOs, and
 
  (h)
the gross amount of assets (including leverage) or the net assets (plus leverage where applicable) for certain of our credit-focused registered investment companies.
Each of our segments may include certain Fee-Earning Assets Under Management on which we earn performance revenues but not management fees.
Our calculations of assets under management and fee-earning assets under management may differ from the calculations of other asset managers, and as a result this measure may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other asset managers. In addition, our calculation of assets under management includes commitments to, and the fair value of, invested capital in our funds from Blackstone and our personnel, regardless of whether such commitments or invested capital are subject to fees. Our definitions of assets under management and fee-earning assets under management are not based on any definition of assets under management and fee-earning assets under management that is set forth in the agreements governing the investment funds that we manage.

Table of Contents
For our carry funds, total assets under management includes the fair value of the investments held and uncalled capital commitments, whereas fee-earning assets under management may include the total amount of capital commitments or the remaining amount of invested capital at cost, depending on whether the investment period has expired or as specified by the fee terms of the fund. As such, in certain carry funds fee-earning assets under management may be greater than total assets under management when the aggregate fair value of the remaining investments is less than the cost of those investments.
“Perpetual Capital” refers to the component of assets under management with an indefinite term, that is not in liquidation, and for which there is no requirement to return capital to investors through redemption requests in the ordinary course of business, except where funded by new capital inflows. Perpetual Capital includes co-investment capital with an investor right to convert into Perpetual Capital.
This report does not constitute an offer of any Blackstone Fund.
