Blackstone Mortgage Trust, Inc., a real estate finance company, originates and purchases senior loans collateralized by properties in North America and Europe. The company is externally managed by BXMT Advisors L.L.C. Segments The company’s business is organized into two operating segments, Loan Origination and CT Legacy Portfolio. Loan Origination This segment includes the company’s activities associated with the origination and acquisition of mortgage loans, the capitalization of its loan portfolio, and the costs associated with operating its business generally. CT Legacy Portfolio This segment includes the company’s activities primarily related to CT Legacy Partners and its equity investment in CT Opportunity Partners I, LP. Investment Strategy The company’s investment strategy is to originate loans and invest in debt and related instruments supported by institutional quality commercial real estate in attractive locations. The company directly acquires, originates, and co-originates debt instruments in conjunction with acquisitions, refinancings, and recapitalizations of commercial real estate worldwide. In the case of loans that the company acquires, it focuses on performing loans that are supported by well-capitalized properties and portfolios. The company’s business is focused on originating senior, floating rate mortgage loans that are secured by a first priority mortgage on commercial real estate assets primarily in the office, lodging, residential, retail, industrial, and healthcare sectors in North America and Europe. These investments might be in the form of whole loans or might also include pari passu participations within mortgage loans. Although originating senior mortgage loans is the company’s primary area of focus, it also originates subordinate loans, including subordinate mortgage interests and mezzanine loans. Subordinate Mortgage Loans: These are interests, referred to as ‘B Notes’, in a junior portion of a mortgage loan. The interests are subordinated to the ‘A Note’ or senior participation interest by virtue of a contractual arrangement. Mezzanine Loans: These are loans (including pari passu participations in such loans) made to the owners of a mortgage borrower and secured by a pledge of equity interests in the mortgage borrower. These loans are structurally subordinate to any loan made directly to the mortgage borrower. Preferred Equity: These are investments subordinate to any mezzanine loan, but senior to the owners’ common equity. Real Estate Securities: These are interests in real estate, which might take the form of commercial mortgage-backed securities or collateralized loan obligations. Note Financings: These are loans secured by other mortgage loans, subordinate mortgage interests, and mezzanine loans. Government Regulation The company is required to comply with certain provisions of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act that are applicable to commercial loans. Tax Status The company has elected to be taxed as a real estate investment trust under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. As a result, the company is not subject to Federal or State income taxation at the corporate level to the extent it distributes annually approximately 90% of its real estate investment trust taxable income to its shareholders and satisfies certain other requirements. History The company was founded in 1966. It was formerly known as Capital Trust, Inc. and changed its name to Blackstone Mortgage Trust, Inc. in 2013.
