    QUOTES AS OF 03:26:14 PM ET 04/08/2015
    03:26 PM EDT, 04/08/2015 -- Shares of Hilton Worldwide Holdings(HLT) rose to a fresh lifetime high Wednesday after the U.K.'s Daily Mail reported Chinese investors, including Shanghai-based JinJiang International, approached private equity firm Blackstone Group(BX) to inquire about a price for its majority stake in the hotel chain.

    The report said Blackstone has turned down an offer of $45 a share for its controlling stake, saying it wants considerably more before agreeing to a sale.

    The Daily Mail said Chinese investors are expected to rack up billions of pounds worth of hotel assets this year, as China'sMinistry of Commerce has loosened controls on outbound investments and no longer has to authorize deals above GBP 67.4 million.

    HLT was up more than 4% in recent trade, with a new 52-week range of $20.72 to $30.48.

  • EXL 15.81down +1.97 (+14.23%)
    BX 39.79down +0.59 (+1.51%)
    QUOTES AS OF 10:19:16 AM ET 04/10/2015
    Excel Trust Inc. (EXL) agreed to be purchased by Blackstone Property Partners LP for about $1 billion in cash.

    Shares of Excel surged 14% in recent premarket trading.

    The purchase price of $15.85 a share is a 15% premium on Excel's closing price Thursday. The total transaction, including debt, is valued at about $2 billion.

    San Diego-based Excel is an REIT that mostly targets community shopping centers. Chief Executive Gary Sabin said the board decided to sell because, "We did not believe the market accurately reflected the value of the assets," given the strong demand for retail real estate.

    Under the terms, Excel will pay an additional common-stock dividend in July, but not afterward.

    Excel's board unanimously approved the deal, which is expected to close in the second half of the year.

    Fragmented Shopping Center Space

    I was not surprised to see the latest news with Blackstone (acquiring Excel Trust). Today there are close to 20 Shopping Center REITs in the U.S. and that makes the industry ripe for consolidation .

    Excel has a quality management team with high-quality assets; however, the company has not been able to capture its true value, at least in the eyes of the public market. There are several beastly players today – notably Kimco Retail (KIM), DDR Corporation (DDR), and Brixmor Retail (BRX) – and the combined market cap for these bigger REITs exceeds $25 billion.

    Excel has returned just 26.7% over the last five years, while Kimco has advanced by 92.9% and DDR Corp has moved the needle over 53% (over the same period).

    Blackstone has been successful with its shopping center investments. In 2013 the Private Equity owners took Brixmor public resulting in a $458 million offering. Blackstone still owns around 50.4% (49.3% voting stake) in Brixmor versus 78.8% at the IPO (October 2013) and additional offerings in 2015 should dilute Blackstone’s ownership stake below 30% by year-end 2015.

    Blackstone has also joint-ventured with DDR. Recently the two firms combined forces to acquire the multi-tenant portfolio for American Realty Capital Properties ARCP +0.82% (ARCP).

  • Blackstone's purchase of the GE first mortgage loans will nearly double the asset base of the private equity firm's real estate investment trust, Keefe, Bruyette & Woods research analysts Jade Rahman and Ryan Tomasello wrote in a Friday investor note. The transaction eventually should result in a 24 cent to 28 cent increase in core earnings per share, the analysts predicted.

    Blackstone will fold the new real estate assets into a sprawling portfolio whose major holdings include the Hilton Worldwide global hotel chain, Invitation Homes, a U.S. leader in the single-family home rental industry, Logicor, an operator of modern logistics facilities in Europe, and SCP, a Chinese shopping-mall developer and operator.
