New York, July 1, 2019 – Blackstone today announced that it has completed its previously announced conversion to a corporation from a publicly traded partnership.
Stephen A. Schwarzman, Blackstone Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder, said, “Our conversion to a corporation is an exciting next step for Blackstone, which we believe will make it much easier for both domestic and international investors to own our stock.
