Hilton IPO

Blackstone filed for a $1.25 billion IPO on Hilton. This would be used to "pay down debt" according to the Bloomberg article that is out today, but is a drop in the bucket compared to the $9 billion senior mortgage that was structured in 2010 with a piece in BALL 2010-HLTN, and another ~$10 billion in mezz debt done at the same time. Previous Hilton stories can be found here.

Bloomberg also notes that Blackstone has had two other IPOs in the past year: SeaWorld Entertainment Inc ($807.3mm, April - up 6%) and Pinnacle Foods Inc. ($667mm, March - up 35%).
