BLACKROCK LATIN AMERICAN INVESTMENT TRUST PLC  (LEI: UK9OG5Q0CYUDFGRX4151)

ANNOUNCEMENT OF SECOND QUARTERLY INTERIM DIVIDEND

2 October 2018

On 30 May 2018 shareholders of BlackRock Latin American Trust plc approved a resolution to amend the Company’s dividend policy to pay regular quarterly dividends equivalent to 1.25% of the Company’s US Dollar NAV on the last working day of December, March, June and September each year, with the dividends being paid in November, February, May and August each year respectively.   Therefore for the year ending 31 December 2018, the second quarterly dividend under this new policy will be calculated based on the Company’s cum-income US Dollar NAV at 28 September 2018 (being the last working day of the quarter).

The Company’s cum-income US Dollar NAV at 28 September 2018 is 628.34 US cents per share, and the Directors of BlackRock Latin American Investment Trust plc are therefore pleased to declare a second quarterly interim dividend of 7.85 cents per share.  The dividend is payable on 9 November 2018 to holders of ordinary shares on the register at the close of business on 12 October 2018 (ex-dividend date is 11 October 2018).
