BlackRock 2022 Global Income Opportunity Trust (BGIO) Liquidation Update

In June BlackRock announced a plan of liquidation for BlackRock 2022 Global Income Opportunity Trust (NYSE: BGIO, CUSIP: 09258P104) in accordance with its investment objective of terminating on or before February 28, 2022. Under BGIO’s plan of liquidation, the fund began the process of liquidating portfolio assets and unwinding its affairs and we expect to make a final liquidating distribution by December 31, 2021. BGIO is liquidating earlier than anticipated given the favorable market environment for unwinding its assets and returning shareholder capital in a timely manner.

Since the adoption of the plan of liquidation, BGIO has declared a total of $6.6504 per share in liquidating distributions, including the $0.05 regular monthly distribution per share:
