Blackstone Reports Second Quarter Results

Blackstone (NYSE:BX) today reported its second quarter 2014 results.

Stephen A. Schwarzman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Blackstone’s second quarter results marked one of our best ever in terms of both ENI and distributable earnings. As more of our assets under management have seasoned, we’ve been increasingly active in harvesting the value we’ve created over several years. At the same time, ENI, which reflects our current value creation, remains at record levels, reaching $4.3 billion for the past twelve months. Despite our sharp increase in realizations to $39 billion over the past year, continued capital inflows and strong investment performance brought us to another record for total assets under management, reaching $279 billion at quarter end, up 21% year over year.”
