The previously-announced contemplated reorganizations of each of PIMCO Dynamic Credit and Mortgage Income Fund (“PCI”) and PIMCO Income Opportunity Fund (“PKO”) (NYSE: PKO) with and into PIMCO Dynamic Income Fund (“PDI”) (NYSE: PDI) are currently expected to be consummated following the scheduled close of regular trading on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) on December 10, 2021, subject to PIMCO’s market outlook and operational considerations, the satisfaction of applicable regulatory requirements and customary closing conditions. Upon consummation of the reorganizations, PDI will acquire all of the assets and assume of all the liabilities of each of PKO and PCI in exchange for additional common shares of beneficial interest of PDI (“Merger Shares”), and PCI and PKO common shareholders will receive Merger Shares (and cash in lieu of fractional Merger Shares, if any), based on the relative net asset value per common share (“NAV”) of the Funds as of the close of business on December 10, 2021.

In connection with the reorganizations, shares of PCI and PKO are expected to cease trading on the NYSE following the close of regular trading on December 10, 2021. Shares of PDI, including the Merger Shares issued in connection with the reorganizations, will continue to trade on the NYSE upon the opening of regular trading on December 13, 2021. Following the reorganizations, PDI will continue to be managed in accordance with its existing investment objectives and strategies. PDI seeks current income and capital appreciation by utilizing a dynamic asset allocation strategy among multiple sectors of the global credit markets.

The PCI, PKO and PDI NAVs as of December 10, 2021, the share exchange ratios for the reorganizations and any final distributions will be announced in one or more subsequent press releases. Distributions paid by PCI and PKO subsequent to this press release are expected to be paid in cash as the Funds’ dividend reinvestment program will be suspended in advance of the reorganizations.
