About BKT

BlackRock Income Trust, Inc.’s (BKT) (the “Trust”) investment objective is to manage a portfolio of high-quality securities to achieve both preservation of capital and high monthly income. The Trust seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 65% of its assets in mortgage-backed securities. The Trust invests at least 80% of its assets in securities that are (i) issued or guaranteed by the US government or one of its agencies or instrumentalities or (ii) rated at the time of investment either AAA by S&P or Aaa by Moody’s. The Trust may invest directly in such securities or synthetically through the use of derivatives. On June 6, 2014, the Boards of the Trust, BlackRock Income Opportunity Trust, Inc. (“BNA”) and BlackRock Core Bond Trust (“BHK”) approved the reorganizations of the Trust and BNA with and into BHK, with BHK continuing as the surviving fund after the reorganizations. At a special meeting of shareholders on September 30, 2014, the reorganization of the Trust with and into BHK was not approved by BKT shareholders. Consequently, the reorganization of BKT with and into BHK will not be completed.
