16:46 EDTBXBlackstone says SEC requests information on fee practices, vendor discounts
In a regulatory filing Friday, Blackstone stated, "The SEC has publicly indicated that it is focused on private equity practices regarding fees and other conflicts of interest including the... practice of receiving fees from portfolio companies in connection with termination of monitoring agreements upon the initial public offering or disposition of such companies. The SEC reviewed our monitoring fee practices in 2011-2012 in their regular exam process... In June 2014, we voluntarily modified our monitoring fee practices... including eliminating any such payments beyond the year of sale for full dispositions and limiting payments following IPOs. Recently, the SEC has informally requested additional information about our historical monitoring fee termination practices. The SEC also has asked for additional information about certain pre-2011 practices relating to the application of disparate vendor discounts to Blackstone and to our funds that were changed in 2011 and had also been previously reviewed by the SEC in 2012. We are in discussions with the SEC regarding a potential resolution of these matters."
