Blackstone / GSO Long-Short Credit Income Fund (the “Fund”) (NYSE: BGX) announced the declaration of monthly distributions of $0.098 per common share, payable on the dates noted below. Based on the Fund’s current share price of $17.04 (as of its close on September 8, 2014), the distributions represent an annualized yield of 6.90%.

BGX’s strategy allows the manager to allocate to both floating rate loans and high yield bonds, while maintaining a core portfolio of 70% secured loans. With an asset composition of approximately 81% floating rate loans, we believe that the Fund is well positioned to take advantage of a potential rise in interest rates.

The following dates apply to the distributions declared:

Ex-Date: October 22, 2014
Record Date: October 24, 2014
Payable Date: October 31, 2014
Per Share Amount: $0.098

Ex-Date: November 18, 2014
Record Date: November 20, 2014
Payable Date: November 28, 2014
Per Share Amount: $0.098

A portion of each distribution may be treated as paid from sources other than net investment income, including but not limited to short-term capital gain, long-term capital gain or return of capital. The final determination of the source of these distributions will be made after the Fund’s year end.

Of the $.098 per share payable on October 31, 2014, $0.042 is a short-term capital gain spillover distribution and $0.015 is a long-term capital gain spillover distribution; both from the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

The amounts and sources of distributions reported are only estimates and are not provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend upon the Fund’s investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. The Fund will send to investors, a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year that will define how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.
