Allianz Global Investors Fund Management LLC (“AGIFM”) announced that, at a meeting held today, the Board of Trustees of AllianzGI International & Premium Strategy Fund (the “Fund”) (NYSE:NAI), a closed-end management investment company, approved a Plan of Liquidation and Termination for the Fund. The Plan of Liquidation and Termination is expected to take effect on or about October 16, 2013.

Subsequent to the effectiveness of the Fund’s Plan of Liquidation and Termination, the Fund will begin the orderly liquidation of its assets, determine and pay, or set aside in cash or cash equivalents, an amount at least equal to all known or reasonably ascertainable liabilities and obligations of the Fund, and make one or more liquidating distributions to the Fund’s common shareholders. The Fund has fixed the close of business on October 16, 2013 as the record date for determining the common shareholders of the Fund entitled to receive liquidating distributions. As of that time, the share transfer books of the Fund will be closed, and the trading of the Fund’s shares on the New York Stock Exchange is expected to be suspended. The Fund’s liquidating distributions will be paid in cash. Additional details with respect to the Fund’s liquidation will be provided as they become available. It is currently anticipated that the liquidation will be completed on or about October 28, 2013.

AGIFM, an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Allianz Asset Management of America L.P., serves as the Fund’s investment manager and is a member of Munich-based Allianz Group. Allianz Global Investors U.S. LLC, an AGIFM affiliate, serves as the Fund’s sub-adviser.
