Templeton Global Income Fund Announces Commencement of Tender Offer for its Common Shares

Templeton Global Income Fund (NYSE: GIM) (the “Fund”), today announced the commencement of a tender offer for its outstanding common shares.

The Fund will purchase for cash up to 45% of its outstanding common shares, no par value, at a price equal to 99% of the Fund’s NAV per share as determined as of the close of the regular trading session of the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) on the day the tender offer expires. The tender offer will expire on November 9, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time, unless otherwise extended.

In unanimously approving the tender offer, the Board of Trustees of the Fund considered that a self-tender offer would provide enhanced liquidity to the shareholders ahead of the Fund’s potential investment adviser transition from Franklin Advisers, Inc. to Saba Capital Management, L.P. (which is subject to approval by shareholders); provide potential accretion to the Fund’s NAV per share; and seek to help narrow the NAV discount at which the Fund’s shares trade.

The terms and conditions of the tender offer are set forth in the Fund’s tender offer statement on Schedule TO, including the offer to purchase and related Letter of Transmittal, that was filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
