PIMCO Global Income Opportunities Fund Announces Monthly Distribution and Increase to Targeted Monthly Distribution Rate

Not for distribution to United States newswire services or for dissemination in the United States

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Sep 21, 2015) - PIMCO Global Income Opportunities Fund (the "Fund") (TSX: PGI.UN) is pleased to announce today that it has declared a monthly distribution on its Class A Units (the "Units"). The level of the distribution has been increased versus the level of distributions made in prior months. The distribution is equal to $0.05688 per Unit and will be paid on October 15, 2015 to the holders of record at the close of business on September 30, 2015.

While the Fund does not have a fixed distribution, distributions are now targeted to be equal to $0.05688 per Unit per month moving forward which represents an approximate 5% increase over the previous targeted monthly distribution of $0.05417 per Unit per month. The change in targeted monthly distribution for the Fund takes into account many factors, including but not limited to, the Fund's current and expected earnings, the overall market environment and PIMCO's current economic and market outlook.

Unitholders are reminded that the Fund offers a distribution reinvestment plan ("DRIP") which will provide unitholders with the ability to automatically reinvest their distributions. Eligible unitholders are encouraged to contact the institution through which they hold their Units to confirm enrolment procedures and timelines. A copy of the DRIP is available at https://canada.pimco.com.

The Fund invests in an actively managed portfolio comprised primarily of fixed-income securities selected from multiple global fixed-income sectors. The Manager, PIMCO Canada Corp. ("PIMCO Canada"), retains Pacific Investment Management Company, LLC, ("PIMCO"), to provide investment management services to the Fund.

The Fund's investment objectives are to:

(a) provide unitholders with monthly cash distributions;
