We consider a Device-to-Device (D2D) aided multicast channel, where a base station (BS) wishes to convey a common message to many receivers and these receivers cooperate with each other. We analyze the performance of a two-phase cooperative multicasting scheme requiring only statistical channel knowledge at the BS. Our analysis reveals that, as the number of receivers K grows, the two-phase scheme guarantees an average multicast rate of $\frac {1 }{ 2} \log _{2}(1 + \beta \ln \text {K})$ with high probability for any $\beta < \beta ^\star $ where $\beta ^\star $ depends on the network topology. This scheme undergoes a phase transition at threshold $\beta ^\star \ln \text {K}$ where transmissions are successful/unsuccessful with high probability when the Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) is above/below this threshold. We also analyze the multicast outage rate when a target joint decoding probability is fixed. Finally, we propose two enhanced schemes by optimally allocating the time resource between two phases and combining received signals from two phases.
