AllianzGI Diversified Income & Convertible Fund


Announces the Conclusion of its Common Share Repurchase Plan


NEW YORK, April 21, 2016 (BUSINESS WIRE) — AllianzGI Diversified Income & Convertible Fund (NYSE: ACV) (the “Fund”) today announced the conclusion of a Repurchase Plan (the “Plan”) with respect to the Fund’s common shares that had been implemented for a defined period following the Fund’s initial public offering.  The Plan was implemented, in part, in an attempt to provide additional liquidity in the marketplace for the common shares and to potentially reduce declines in the market price of the common shares in comparison to their net asset value (“NAV”).


Generally, under the terms of the Plan, the Fund has repurchased its common shares on the open market on any trading day when its common shares were trading at a discount of 2% or more from their closing NAV on the prior trading day and subject to other conditions, in an amount equal to the lesser of $125,000 or the maximum number of shares that it could purchase under applicable regulations (generally, 25% of the average trading volume of the shares over the trailing four week period).  Pursuant to the terms of the Plan, the repurchase period commenced on September 4, 2015 (the 61st day following the date on which the over-allotment period following the Fund’s initial public offering ended) and concluded on April 21, 2016, 230 days after the commencement of the Plan.  The Fund has determined not to continue the Plan or to implement another common share repurchase plan at this time.


The Fund is a closed-end management investment company. The Fund’s investment objective is to provide total return through a combination of current income and capital appreciation, while seeking to provide downside protection against capital loss. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its stated objective.  As with any stock, the price of the Fund’s common shares will fluctuate with market conditions and other factors. If you sell your common shares, the price received may be more or less than your original investment.  Shares of closed-end management investment companies, such as the Fund, frequently trade at a discount from their NAV.


Allianz Global Investors Fund Management LLC (“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.
