Blackstone (BX) today reported its first quarter 2013 results.
Stephen A. Schwarzman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Blackstone achieved strong first quarter results across the board. Revenue rose 29% year-over-year, and earnings were up 28%. Greater realizations, reaching $6 billion in the quarter, drove our second best quarter for cash earnings since becoming a public company. Blackstone also continues to show sustained asset growth. Although several of our investment businesses are already the largest of their kind in the world, every one reported year-over-year double-digit growth in total assets under management.”
