  Goldman Sachs MLP Income Opportunities Fund Announces Initial Quarterly
  Distribution of $0.315 Per Share

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- December 30, 2013

Goldman Sachs MLP Income Opportunities Fund (the “Fund”) (NYSE:GMZ) today is
pleased to have announced its initial quarterly distribution of $0.315 per
common share, payable on the date noted below. On an annualized basis this
distribution reflects a current yield of 6.30% based upon an IPO price of
$20.00 per share.

The initial distribution schedule is as follows:

Ex-Date:         February 13, 2014
Record Date:        February 18, 2014
Payable Date:       February 25, 2014
Amount:             $0.315 per share

It is currently anticipated that a portion of this distribution will be
treated for tax purposes as a return of capital and may not consist entirely
of distributions from the Fund’s underlying investments. The final
characterization of such distribution will be made in early 2015 when the Fund
can determine its earnings and profits. The final tax status of the
distribution may differ substantially from this preliminary information.

Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount from
their net asset value (“NAV”), which may increase investors’ risk of loss. At
the time of sale, an investor’s shares may have a market price that is above
or below NAV, and may be worth more or less than the original investment.
There is no assurance that the Fund will meet its investment objective. Past
performance does not guarantee future results. Investments in securities of
MLPs involve risks that differ from investments in common stock, including
among others risks related to limited control and limited rights to vote on
matters affecting MLPs, potential conflicts of interest risk, cash flow risks,
dilution risks and trading risks.

A registration statement relating to the Fund’s common stock has been filed
with and declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission. This
press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an
offer to buy any security. The Fund has completed its initial public offering.
Investors should consider their investment goals, time horizons and risk
tolerance before investing in the Fund. An investment in the Fund is not
appropriate for all investors, and the Fund is not intended to be a complete
investment program. Investors should carefully review and consider the Fund’s
investment objective, risks, charges and expenses before investing.
