Business Wire

NEW YORK -- August 23, 2013

Blackstone / GSO Long-Short Credit Income Fund (the “Fund”) (NYSE: BGX)
announced the declaration of monthly distributions of $0.108 per common share,
payable on the dates noted below. Based on the Fund’s initial public offering
price of $20.00 per share and current share price of $18.12 (as of its close
on August 22, 2013), the distributions represent an annualized yield of 6.48%
and 7.15% respectively.

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 just over 75% 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: September 18, 2013
Record Date: September 20, 2013
Payable Date: September 30, 2013
Per Share Amount: $0.108

Ex-Date: October 16, 2013
Record Date: October 18, 2013
Payable Date: October 31, 2013
Per Share Amount: $0.108

Ex-Date: November 14, 2013
Record Date: November 18, 2013
Payable Date: November 29, 2013
Per Share Amount: $0.108

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.

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.
