    Financial Markets Highlights September 30, 2015 Š Emerging Markets (EM) Debt Over the 12-month period ended September 30, 2015, U.S. dollar (USD)-denominated EM fixed income indices posted modestly negative returns. Both EM sovereign and corporate spreads widened over the fourth quarter of 2014, after oil prices began their sharp fall on slowing global demand and increasing excess supply from oil producing countries. Slowing domestic U.S. data over the first half of 2015 started to push out expectations for the first Federal Reserve hike and EM spreads tightened on looser financial conditions. The positive global growth story took a turn in June after a series of negative data points and policy steps by China started to weigh on global growth expectations and put further pressure on commodity prices. EM spreads began to widen, ending September 2015 at levels not seen since the European debt crisis in 2011. EM local currency debt underperformed U.S. dollar (USD) EM fixed income over the 12-month period as EM currencies sharply declined against the USD. Š Agency Mortgage-Backed Securities (Agency MBS) For the 12-month period ended September 30, 2015, the Barclays U.S. MBS Index returned 3.43% and the duration of the Index shortened from 5.01 to 4.20 years, as the U.S. yield curve flattened with 10-year U.S. Treasury yields declining by 0.45%. Refinancing activity, as measured by the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) Refinancing Index, increased when looking at the trailing 12-month period; however, activity spiked at the beginning of 2015 when interest rates dramatically fell over the month of January, propagating a refinancing wave for the first quarter. In addition, housing turnover increased materially this year with higher purchasing activity in general, particularly during the summer months. The combination of higher refinancing and purchasing activity resulted in an increase in prepayment speeds for the first half of 2015. As of the end of the reporting period, prepayment speeds have come back down to levels seen at the end of 2014, showing the diminishing effects of housing seasonality with less purchasing and refinancing activity in general as we approached closer to the fall and winter months. As prepayment speeds were higher during the first half of 2015, gross issuance of Agency MBS was also higher during the first half of 2015, resulting in a total issuance year-to-date (YTD) surpassing 2014 total issuance volumes. Š Non-Agency Mortgage-Backed Securities (Non-Agency MBS) During the 12-month period ended September 30, 2015, the non-Agency MBS market was largely stable despite headwinds coming from both domestic and international markets. The non-Agency MBS market largely shrugged off global concern and instead displayed stable, if not improving, fundamentals during the period. On the technical side, trading volume slowly decreased while investors remained interested in adding exposure to this sector. We have seen more interest rate and market volatility during the period than we have seen in the past several years in the non-Agency MBS space, though mortgage rates are lower year-over-year (YoY). As a result, prepayment speeds have been slightly faster and liquidation rates and loss severities have either been stable or improving. This has helped the sector as the average price is still below par, and faster speeds and lower liquidations have helped investors achieve more yield. In the near-term, we expect technical aspects to continue to help, as we believe that low issuance of new non-Agency MBS will keep the supply and demand balance in favor of buyers. Š Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBS) Over the 12-month period ended September 30, 2015, CMBS credit spreads widened as macroeconomic and headline volatility extended into September. During the period, the Barclays U.S. CMBS Index returned 3.72%, outperforming the broader Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index by 0.78%. For the period, 10-year AAA last cash flows (LCFs) were trading at 1.23% over swaps, representing a 0.42% widening YoY, while BBB- bonds traded at 5.25% over swaps, a 1.90% widening. On the new issue front, non-Agency CMBS issuance was up 7.30% YoY, with $92.9 billion in new issuance over 110 deals during the 12-month reporting period compared to $86.6 billion in 97 deals from October 2013 through September 2014. Delinquency rates across all asset classes improved during the period. The delinquency rate fell 0.17% in September to 5.28%. The rate is now 0.75% lower than it was at this time last year, and 0.47% lower YTD. Š U.S. High Yield (HY) For the 12-month period ended September 30, 2015, the Citi High-Yield Cash-Pay Capped Index declined 4.36% as volatility and market uncertainty increased over the third quarter of 2015. Credit quality was a major differentiator as higher-rated bonds outperformed lower-rated ones. Specifically, BB-rated issues declined 1.57% while B-rated issues were down 5.24% and CCC-rated issues dropped 11.42%. Notable outperformers by industry were Retail-Food & Drug (+8.67%), Food Processors/Beverage/Bottling (+7.33%), and Annual Report September 30, 2015 5

    Financial Markets Highlights (Cont.) September 30, 2015 Airlines (+7.02%). The underperforming industries were all commodity related. Underperformance by sector was led by Secondary Oil & Gas Producers (-30.65%), Metals/Mining (-25.44%) and Oil Equipment (-23.86%). The 12-month par-weighted HY default rate as of September 30, 2015 was 2.29% while the more stable issuer-weighted default rate came in at 2.52%. Š Bank Loans For the 12-month period ended September 30, 2015, the S&P/LSTA Leveraged Loan Index returned 0.92%. Amidst the volatility over the past few months, investors have clearly preferred higher quality loans. As such, by bank loan rating, BB-rated loans led performance, returning 3.56%. First lien loans returned 1.28%, outperforming the second lien loan return of -5.77%. The top performing industries included Cosmetics—Toiletries (+5.84%) and Food and Drug Retailers (+5.74%). Underperforming industries were focused around the commodity sector. The worst performing industries were Oil and Gas (-23.42%), Nonferrous Metals—Minerals (-17.69%) and Forest Products (-15.22%). As of the end of the period, the default rate remained low at 1.27% on a par-weighted basis and 0.77% on par-weighted basis. Š Collateralized Loan Obligations (CLOs) For the 12-month period ended September 30, 2015, 211 new CLOs came to market with a value of $109 billion. During the fourth quarter of 2014, there was $30.71 billion in new CLO issuance, which concluded a record-setting 2014 for CLO issuance. At the onset of 2015, CLO market participants expected to see between $70-80 billion in new issuance for the year. Through the first two quarters of 2015, expectations for 2015 issuance were revised to $90-110 billion; however, new issuance during the third quarter of 2015 disappointed market expectations as the lowest quarter of issuance since the third quarter of 2013. Despite the issuance slowdown during the end of the period, CLO new issuance for 2015 already surpassed the original estimate of $70-80 billion with $80.94 billion issued YTD. CLO prices decreased slightly over the period, however, with lower rated CLOs (rated BBB and BBs) experiencing more price declining than higher rated securities (rated AAA-A). 6 DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund

    Management’s Discussion of Fund Performance September 30, 2015 The DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund underperformed the Barclays Global Aggregate Bond Index’s return of -3.27% for the 12-month period ended September 30, 2015 on both a net asset value and market price basis. Credit assets struggled for much of this year with emerging markets fixed income (EMFI) and HY debt declining over the period. Global fixed income markets were plagued by worries over deteriorating growth, weakness in the commodities complex and a surprise currency devaluation in China. As of the end of the reporting period, the Fund’s largest exposure was to the EMFI sector at just under 44%, which was the worst performing sector and reversed the strong gains from the prior year. Conversely, MBS, both commercial and residential, contributed healthy total returns to the Fund which contributed toward offsetting losses from EMFI and HY. Other sectors within the Fund, such as Bank Loans, CLOs and Municipal debt additionally benefited from price appreciation which helped to mitigate losses in NAV over the period. The Fund also continues to employ leverage and had a levered weighted average duration of 6.7 years as of September 30, 2015. Period Ended 9-30-15 1 Year Net Asset Value (NAV) Return -6.77% Market Price Return -12.20% Barclays Global Aggregate Bond Index -3.27% For additional performance information, please refer to the “Standardized Performance Summary.” Opinions expressed herein are as of September 30, 2015 and are subject to change at any time, are not guaranteed and should not be considered investment advice. This report is for the information of shareholders of the Fund.

They have been picked for comparison or illustration purposes only. No security presented within is either offered for sale or purchase. DoubleLine reserves the right to change its investment perspective and outlook without notice as market conditions dictate or as additional information becomes available. Investment strategies may not achieve the desired results due to implementation lag, other timing factors, portfolio management decision making, economic or market conditions or other unanticipated factors.

Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value, which may increase investors’ risk of loss. There are risks associated with an investment in the Fund. Investors should consider the Fund’s investment objective, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. An investment in the Fund should not constitute a complete investment program. The Fund’s daily New York Stock Exchange closing prices, net asset values per share, as well as other information are available at http://www.doublelinefunds.com/ closed_end_funds/income_solutions/overview.html or by calling the Fund’s shareholder servicing agent at (877) 354-6311. This document is not an offer to sell securities or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities, nor shall there be any sale or offer of these securities, in any jurisdiction where such sale or offer is not permitted. The Fund’s shares are only offered through broker/dealers on the secondary market. Unlike an open-end mutual fund, a closed-end fund offers a fixed number of shares for sale. After the initial public offering, shares are bought and sold in the secondary marketplace, and the market price of the shares is determined by supply and demand, not by net asset value (NAV), often at a lower price than the NAV. A closed-end fund is not required to buy its shares back from investors upon request. Credit ratings from Moody’s range from the highest rating of Aaa for bonds of the highest quality that offer the lowest degree of investment risk to the lowest rating of C for the lowest rated class of bonds. Credit ratings from Standard & Poor’s (S&P) range from the highest rating of AAA for bonds of the highest quality that offer the lowest degree of investment risk to the lowest rating of D for bonds that are in default. Credit ratings are determined from the highest available credit rating from any Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (“NRSRO”). DoubleLine chooses to display credit ratings using S&P’s rating convention, although the rating itself might be sourced from another NRSRO. Fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in debt securities typically decline in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of including credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments. The Fund may invest in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for investments in emerging markets. Investments in lower rated and non-rated securities present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher rated securities. Investment strategies may not achieve the desired results due to implementation lag, other timing factors, portfolio management decision-making, economic or market conditions or other unanticipated factors. The Fund is a “non-diversified” investment company and therefore may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a single issuer or a limited number of issuers than funds that are “diversified.” Accordingly, the Fund is more susceptible to risks associated with a single economic, political or regulatory occurrence than a diversified fund might be. In addition, the Fund may invest in other asset classes and investments such as, among others, REITs, credit default swaps, short sales, derivatives and smaller companies which include additional risks. The Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses must be considered carefully before investing. You can obtain the Fund’s most recent periodic reports and certain other regulatory filings by calling 1 (877) 354-6311/ 1 (877) DLINE11, or visiting www.doublelinefunds.com. You should read these reports and other filings carefully before investing. Annual Report September 30, 2015 7

    Notes to Financial Statements September 30, 2015 1. Organization DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund (the “Fund”) was formed as a closed-end management investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”), and classified as a non-diversified management investment company. The Fund was organized as a Massachusetts business trust on January 10, 2013 and commenced operations on April 26, 2013. The Fund is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) under the symbol “DSL”. The Fund’s primary investment objective is to seek high current income and its secondary objective is to seek capital appreciation. 2. Significant Accounting Policies The Fund is an investment company that applies the accounting and reporting guidance issued in Topic 946, “Financial Services—Investment Companies”, by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”). The following is a summary of the significant accounting policies of the Fund. These policies are in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”). A. Security Valuation. The Fund has adopted US GAAP fair value accounting standards which establish a definition of fair value and set out a hierarchy for measuring fair value. These standards require additional disclosures about the various inputs and valuation techniques used to develop the measurements of fair value and a discussion of changes in valuation techniques and related inputs during the period. These inputs are summarized in the three broad levels listed below: • Level 1—Unadjusted quoted market prices in active markets for identical securities • Level 2—Quoted prices for identical or similar assets in markets that are not active, or inputs derived from observable market data • Level 3—Significant unobservable inputs (including the reporting entity’s estimates and assumptions) Assets and liabilities may be transferred between levels. The Fund uses end of period timing recognition to account for any transfers. Market values for domestic and foreign fixed income securities are normally determined on the basis of valuations provided by independent pricing services. Vendors typically value such securities based on one or more inputs described in the following table which is not intended to be a complete list. The table provides examples of inputs that are commonly relevant for valuing particular classes of fixed income securities in which the Fund is authorized to invest. However, these classifications are not exclusive, and any of the inputs may be used to value any other class of fixed-income securities. Securities that use similar valuation techniques and inputs as described in the following table are categorized as Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. To the extent the significant inputs are unobservable, the values would be categorized as Level 3. Fixed-income class Examples of Standard Inputs All Benchmark yields, transactions, bids, offers, quotations from dealers and trading systems, new issues, spreads and other relationships observed in the markets among comparable securities; and proprietary pricing models such as yield measures calculated using factors such as cash flows, financial or collateral performance and other reference data (collectively referred to as “standard inputs”) Corporate bonds and notes; Standard inputs and underlying equity of the issuer convertible securities US bonds and notes of government and Standard inputs government agencies Residential and commercial Standard inputs and cash flows, prepayment information, default rates, delinquency and loss assumptions, mortgage-backed obligations; collateral characteristics, credit enhancements and specific deal information, trustee reports asset-backed obligations (including collateralized loan obligations) Bank loans Standard inputs Investments in registered open-end management investment companies will be valued based upon the net asset value (“NAV”) of such investments and are categorized as Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy. Investments in private investment funds typically will be valued based upon the NAVs of such investments and are categorized as Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. As of September 30, 2015, the Fund did not hold any investments in private investment funds. Over-the-counter financial derivative instruments, such as foreign currency exchange contracts, options contracts, futures, or swaps agreements, derive their values from underlying asset prices, indices, reference rates, other inputs or a combination of these factors. These instruments are normally valued on the basis of evaluations provided by independent pricing services or broker dealer quotations. Depending on the instrument and the terms of the transaction, the value of the derivative instruments can be estimated by a pricing service provider using a series of techniques, such as simulation pricing models. The pricing models use issuer details and other inputs that are observed from actively quoted markets such as indices, spreads, interest rates, curves, dividends and exchange rates. Derivatives that use similar valuation techniques and inputs as described above are normally categorized as Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The Fund may enter into reverse repurchase agreements. In a reverse repurchase agreement, the Fund sells to a financial institution a security that it holds with an agreement to repurchase the same security at an agreed-upon price and date. A reverse repurchase agreement involves the risk that the market value of the security may decline below the repurchase price of the security. The Fund will segregate assets determined to be liquid by the Adviser or otherwise cover its obligations under reverse repurchase agreements. As of September 30, 2015, the Fund had no outstanding reverse repurchase agreements. Annual Report September 30, 2015 21

    Notes to Financial Statements (Cont.) September 30, 2015 Securities may be fair valued in accordance with the fair valuation procedures approved by the Board of Trustees (the “Board”). The Valuation Committee is generally responsible for overseeing the day to day valuation processes and reports periodically to the Board. The Valuation Committee and the Pricing Group are authorized to make all necessary determinations of the fair values of portfolio securities and other assets for which market quotations are not readily available or if it is deemed that the prices obtained from brokers and dealers or independent pricing services are deemed to be unreliable indicators of market or fair value. The following is a summary of the fair valuations according to the inputs used to value the Fund’s investments as of September 30, 20151: Category Investments in Securities Level 1 Money Market Funds $ 14,134,972 Total Level 1 14,134,972 Level 2 Foreign Corporate Bonds 1,278,449,076 US Corporate Bonds 484,719,937 Bank Loans 310,128,206 Non-Agency Commercial Mortgage Backed Obligations 251,083,017 US Government / Agency Mortgage Backed Obligations 217,673,014 Collateralized Loan Obligations 164,732,911 Non-Agency Residential Collateralized Mortgage Obligations 94,911,059 Municipal Bonds 33,862,500 Total Level 2 2,835,559,720 Level 3 Non-Agency Commercial Mortgage Backed Obligations 34,296,163 Total Level 3 34,296,163 Total $2,883,990,855 See the Schedule of Investments for further disaggregation of investment categories. 1 There were no transfers into or out of Level 1 during the year ended September 30, 2015. The following is a reconciliation of investments in which significant unobservable inputs (Level 3) were used in determining fair value: Net Change in Unrealized Appreciation Net Change in (Depreciation) Unrealized on securities Balance as of Net Realized Appreciation Net Accretion Transfers Into Transfers Out Balance as of held at 9/30/2014 Gain (Loss) (Depreciation)4 (Amortization) Purchases1 Sales2 Level 3 3 of Level 3 3 9/30/2015 9/30/20154 Investments in Securities Non-Agency Residential Collateralized Mortgage Obligations $17,281,097 $(1,218,106) $ 1,092,706 $203,499 $ 621,325 $(17,980,521) $ — $— $ — $ — Non-Agency Commercial Mortgage Backed Obligations 11,304,539 — (6,143,726) 103,698 22,360,772 — 6,670,880 — 34,296,163 (2,037,202) Total $28,585,636 $(1,218,106) $(5,051,020) $307,197 $22,982,097 $(17,980,521) $6,670,880 $— $34,296,163 $(2,037,202) 1 Purchases include all purchases of securities and payups. 2 Sales include all sales of securities, maturities, and paydowns. 3 Transfers between Level 2 and Level 3 were due to a change in observable and/or unobservable inputs from the prior fiscal year end. 4 Any difference between net change in unrealized appreciation (depreciation) and net change in unrealized appreciation (depreciation) on securities held at September 30, 2015 may be due to a security that was not held or categorized as Level 3 at either period end. 22 DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund

The appropriateness of fair values for these securities is monitored on an ongoing basis by the Adviser, which may include back testing, results of vendor due diligence, unchanged price review and consideration of market and/or sector events. B. Federal Income Taxes. The Fund has elected to be taxed as a “regulated investment company” and intends to distribute substantially all of its taxable income to its shareholders and otherwise comply with the provisions of Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code applicable to regulated investment companies. Therefore, no provision for federal income taxes has been made. The Fund may be subject to a nondeductible 4% excise tax calculated as a percentage of certain undistributed amounts of net investment income and net capital gains. The Fund has followed the authoritative guidance on accounting for and disclosure of uncertainty in tax positions, which requires the Fund to determine whether a tax position is more likely than not to be sustained upon examination, including resolution of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits of the position. The Fund has determined that there was no effect on the financial statements from following this authoritative guidance. In the normal course of business, the Fund is subject to examination by federal, state and local jurisdictions, where applicable, for tax years for which applicable statutes of limitations have not expired. The Fund identifies its major tax jurisdictions as U.S. Federal, the State of Massachusetts and the State of California. C. Security Transactions, Investment Income. Investment securities transactions are accounted for on trade date. Gains and losses realized on sales of securities are determined on a specific identification basis. Interest income is recorded on an accrual basis. Discounts/premiums on debt securities purchased are accreted/amortized over the life of the respective securities using the effective interest method except for certain deep discount bonds where management does not expect the par value above the bond’s cost to be fully realized. Dividend income and corporate action transactions, if any, are recorded on the ex-date. Non-cash dividends included in dividend income, if any, are recorded at the fair market value of securities received. Paydown gains and losses on mortgage-related and other asset-backed securities are recorded as components of interest income on the Statement of Operations. D. Dividends and Distributions to Shareholders. Dividends from net investment income will be declared and paid monthly. The Fund will distribute any net realized long or short-term capital gains at least annually. Distributions are recorded on the ex-dividend date. Income and capital gain distributions are determined in accordance with income tax regulations which may differ from US GAAP. Permanent book and tax basis differences relating to shareholder distributions will result in reclassifications between paid-in capital, undistributed net investment income (loss), and/or undistributed (accumulated) realized gain (loss). Undistributed net investment income or loss may include temporary book and tax basis differences which will reverse in a subsequent period. Any taxable income or capital gain remaining at fiscal year end is distributed in the following year. E. Use of Estimates. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. F. Share Valuation. The NAV per share of the Fund is calculated by dividing the sum of the value of the securities held by the Fund, plus cash and other assets, minus all liabilities (including estimated accrued expenses) by the total number of shares outstanding, rounded to the nearest cent. The Fund’s NAV is calculated on days when the New York Stock Exchange opens for regular trading (except that the Fund does not calculate its NAV on holidays when the principal U.S. bond markets are closed, such as Columbus Day and Veterans Day). G. Unfunded Loan Commitments. The Fund may enter into certain credit agreements, of which all or a portion may be unfunded. As of September 30, 2015, the Fund had no outstanding unfunded loan commitments. The Fund may also enter into certain credit agreements designed to provide standby short term or “bridge” financing to a borrower. Typically the borrower is not economically incented to draw on the bridge loan and as such the likelihood of funding is remote. As of September 30, 2015, the Fund had no outstanding bridge loan commitments. The Fund is obligated to fund these commitments at the borrower’s discretion. The Fund generally will maintain with its custodian liquid investments having an aggregate value at least equal to the par value of unfunded loan commitments and bridge loans. H. Guarantees and Indemnifications. Under the Fund’s organizational documents, each Trustee and officer of the Fund is indemnified, to the extent permitted by the 1940 Act, against certain liabilities that may arise out of performance of their duties to the Fund. Additionally, in the normal course of business, the Fund enters into contracts that contain a variety of indemnification clauses. The Fund’s maximum exposure under these arrangements is unknown as this would involve future claims that may be made against the Fund that have not yet occurred. However, the Fund has not had prior claims or losses pursuant to these contracts. Annual Report September 30, 2015 23

    Notes to Financial Statements (Cont.) September 30, 2015 3. Related Party Transactions DoubleLine Capital LP (the “Adviser”) provides the Fund with investment management services under an Investment Management Agreement (the “Agreement”). Under the Agreement, the Adviser manages the investment of the assets of the Fund, places orders for the purchase and sale of its portfolio securities and is responsible for providing certain resources to assist with the day-to-day management of the Fund’s business affairs. As compensation for its services, the Adviser is entitled to a monthly fee at the annual rate of 1.00% of the average daily total managed assets of the Fund. Total managed assets means the total assets of the Fund (including assets attributable to any reverse repurchase agreements, dollar roll transactions or similar transactions, borrowings, and/or preferred shares that may be outstanding) minus accrued liabilities (other than liabilities in respect of reverse repurchase agreements, dollar roll transactions or similar transactions, and borrowings). An affiliate of the Adviser owns 5,106 shares of the Fund. The Adviser has arrangements with DoubleLine Group LP to provide personnel and other resources to the Fund. 4. Purchases and Sales of Securities For the year ended September 30, 2015, purchases and sales of investments, excluding short term investments, were $1,625,119,699 and $1,713,531,602, respectively. There were no transactions in U.S. Government securities (defined as long-term U.S. Treasury bills, notes and bonds) during the period. 5. Income Tax Information The tax character of distributions for the Fund were as follows: Year Ended Year Ended September 30, 2015 September 30, 2014 Distributions Paid From: Ordinary Income $192,868,749 $182,429,715 Total Distributions Paid $192,868,749 $182,429,715 The Fund designated as long-term capital gain dividend, pursuant to Internal Revenue Code Section 852(b)(3), the amount necessary to reduce the earnings and profits of the Fund related to net capital gain to zero for the tax year ended September 30, 2015. The cost basis of investments for federal income tax purposes as of September 30, 2015 was as follows: Tax Cost of Investments $3,248,273,119 Gross Tax Unrealized Appreciation 30,477,759 Gross Tax Unrealized Depreciation (394,760,023) Net Tax Unrealized Appreciation (Depreciation) $ (364,282,264) As of September 30, 2015, the components of accumulated earnings (losses) for income tax purposes were as follows: Net Tax Unrealized Appreciation (Depreciation) $(364,282,264) Undistributed Ordinary Income 5,997,018 Total Distributable Earnings 5,997,018 Other Accumulated Gains (Losses) (49,496,757) Total Accumulated Earnings (Losses) $(407,782,003) As of September 30, 2015, the following capital loss carryforward was available: Capital Loss Carryforward Expires $8,992,592 Indefinite The Fund may elect to defer to the first day of the next taxable year all or part of any late-year ordinary loss or post-October capital loss. As of September 30, 2015, the Fund deferred, on a tax basis, qualified late year losses of $40,496,815. Additionally, US GAAP require that certain components of net assets relating to permanent differences be reclassified between financial and tax reporting. These reclassifications have no effect on net assets or NAV per share. The permanent differences primarily relate to consent income, market discount, PFICs and paydown losses. For the year ended September 30, 2015, the following table shows the reclassifications made: Undistributed (Accumulated) Net Accumulated Investment Net Realized Paid-In Income (Loss) Gain (Loss) Capital $4,532,543 $(4,532,543) $— 24 DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund

    September 30, 2015 6. Share Transactions There were no transactions in the Fund’s shares for the years ended September 30, 2015 and 2014. 7. Trustees’ Fees Trustees who are not affiliated with the Adviser and its affiliates received, as a group, fees of $124,686 from the Fund during the year ended September 30, 2015. These trustees may elect to defer the cash payment of part or all of their compensation. These deferred amounts, which remain as liabilities of the Fund, are treated as if invested in shares of the Fund or other funds managed by the Adviser and its affiliates. These amounts represent general, unsecured liabilities of the Fund and vary according to the total returns of the selected funds. Trustees’ Fees in the Fund’s Statement of Operations includes $123,995 in current fees (either paid in cash or deferred) and an increase of $691 in the value of the deferred amounts. Certain trustees and officers of the Fund are also officers of the Adviser; such trustees and officers are not compensated by the Fund. 8. Bank Loans The Fund may make loans directly to borrowers and may acquire or invest in loans made by others (“loans”). The Fund may acquire a loan interest directly by acting as a member of the original lending syndicate. Alternatively, the Fund may acquire some or all of the interest of a bank or other lending institution in a loan to a particular borrower by means of a novation, an assignment or a participation. The loans in which the Fund may invest include those that pay fixed rates of interest and those that pay floating rates—i.e., rates that adjust periodically based on a known lending rate, such as a bank’s prime rate. The Fund may purchase and sell interests in bank loans on a when-issued and delayed delivery basis, with payment delivery scheduled for a future date. Securities purchased on a delayed delivery basis are marked to market daily and no income accrues to the Fund prior to the date the Fund actually takes delivery of such securities. These transactions are subject to market fluctuations and are subject, among other risks, to the risk that the value at delivery may be more or less than the trade purchase price. 9. Credit Facility Prior to November 26, 2014, Bank of America Merrill Lynch (“BAML”) made available to the Fund a committed credit facility to add leverage to the Fund’s portfolio. Borrowings under this credit facility bore interest at the rate of one month USD LIBOR plus 1.00% during the reporting period. As of November 26, 2014, the Fund repaid all of the outstanding borrowings under the BAML credit facility and the BAML credit facility was terminated. Effective as of that same date, the Fund entered into a Revolving Credit and Security Agreement with HSBC Bank USA, National Association (“HSBC”) and The Bank of New York Mellon (“BNY”) (the “HSBC/BNY credit facility”). Under the HSBC/BNY credit facility, the Fund may borrow up to $1,050,000,000. Borrowings under the HSBC/BNY credit facility bear an interest rate that is based on LIBOR and the period of the borrowing plus an additional 0.80%, subject to certain conditions that may cause that rate of interest to increase. The Fund will also be responsible for paying a structuring fee equal to 0.10% of the credit available to the Fund under the HSBC/BNY credit facility and a commitment fee of up to 0.25% of the available credit that has not been borrowed by the Fund. The HSBC/ BNY credit facility was amended to extend the maturity date an additional 183 days to May 24, 2016 and the structuring fee of 0.10% will be replaced with a six-month extension fee of 0.04% of the credit available to the Fund for the period of such extension. The HSBC/BNY credit facility may be extended by agreement of the parties for successive periods not exceeding 364 days from the date of any such extension, provided that the Fund may terminate in whole or reduce in part the unused portion of the credit facility at any time upon 30 days’ prior written notice to HSBC, as the lending agent. For the year ended September 30, 2015, the Fund’s activity under both credit facilities was as follows: Maximum Maximum Amount Average Amount Interest Structuring Commitment Available Borrowings Outstanding Expense Fee Fee $1,050,000,000 $1,033,753,502 $1,050,000,000 $10,691,754 $886,027 $15,729 10. Principal Risks Below are summaries of some, but not all, of the principal risks of investing in the Fund, each of which could adversely affect the Fund’s NAV, market price, yield, and total return. The Fund’s prospectus provided additional information regarding these and other risks of investing in the Fund at the time of the initial public offering of the Fund’s shares. • market discount risk: The price of the Fund’s common shares of beneficial interest will fluctuate with market conditions and other factors. Shares of closed-end management investment companies frequently trade at a discount from their net asset value. • issuer risk: The value of securities may decline for a number of reasons that directly relate to the issuer, such as its financial strength, management performance, financial leverage and reduced demand for the issuer’s goods and services, as well as the historical and prospective earnings of the issuer and the value of its assets. • investment and market risk: An investment in the Fund is subject to the risk of loss. The value of the Fund’s securities and financial assets may move up or down, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably. Further, the value of securities held by the Fund may decline in value due to factors affecting securities markets generally or particular industries. Securities markets may, in response to governmental actions or intervention, economic or market developments, or other external factors, experience periods of high volatility and reduced liquidity. Certain securities may be difficult to value during such periods. These risks may be heightened for fixed income securities due to the current historically low interest rate environment.

    Notes to Financial Statements (Cont.) September 30, 2015 • issuer non-diversification risk: The Fund is a “non-diversified” investment company and therefore may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a single issuer or a limited number of issuers than funds that are “diversified.” Accordingly, the Fund is more susceptible to risks associated with a single economic, political or regulatory occurrence than a diversified fund might be. • collateralized debt obligations risk: The risks of an investment in a collateralized debt obligation (“CDO”) depend largely on the quality and type of the collateral and the tranche of the CDO in which a Fund invests. In addition to the risks associated with debt instruments (e.g., interest rate risk and credit risk), CDOs carry additional risks including, but not limited to: (i) the possibility that distributions from collateral will not be adequate to make interest or other payments; (ii) the quality of the collateral may decline in value or default; (iii) the possibility that the Fund may invest in CDOs that are subordinate to other classes; and (iv) the complex structure of the security may not be fully understood at the time of investment and may produce disputes with the issuer or unexpected investment results. • convertible securities risk: The risks of investing in convertible bonds and securities include the risk that the issuer may default in the payment of principal and/or interest and the risk that the value of the investment may decline if interest rates rise. Such events may reduce the Fund’s distributable income and the value of the Fund’s shares. • credit risk: Credit risk is the risk that one or more of the Fund’s investments in debt securities or other instruments will decline in price, or fail to pay interest, liquidation value or principal when due, because the issuer of the obligation or the issuer of a reference security experiences an actual or perceived decline in its financial status. • credit default swaps risk: Credit default swaps involve greater risks than investing in the reference obligation directly as well as liquidity risk, counterparty risk and credit risk. A buyer will lose its investment and recover nothing should no event of default occur. When the Fund acts as a seller of a credit default swap, it is exposed to many of the same risks of leverage described herein since if an event of default occurs the seller must pay the buyer the full notional value of the reference obligation. • interest rate risk: Interest rate risk is the risk that debt obligations and other instruments in the Fund’s portfolio will change in value because of increases in market interest rates. • foreign (non-U.S.) investment risk: The Fund’s investments in and exposure to foreign securities involve special risks. For example, the value of these investments may decline in response to unfavorable political and legal developments, unreliable or untimely information or economic and financial instability. Foreign securities may experience more rapid and extreme changes in value than investments in securities of U.S. issuers. Investing in securities of issuers based or doing business in emerging markets entails all of the risks of investing in securities of foreign issuers, but to a heightened degree. • emerging markets risk: Investing in emerging market countries involves substantial risk due to the potential to have limited information compared to what may be available or required by more developed countries; higher brokerage costs; different accounting, auditing and financial reporting standards; different clearing and settlement procedures and custodial services; the potential for less developed legal systems and thinner trading markets as compared to those in developed countries; currency blockages or transfer restrictions; an emerging market country’s dependence on revenue from particular commodities or international aid; and expropriation, nationalization or other adverse political or economic developments. • mortgage-backed securities risk: The risk that borrowers may default on their mortgage obligations or the guarantees underlying the mortgage- backed securities will default and that, during periods of falling interest rates, mortgage-backed securities will be called or prepaid, which may result in the Fund having to reinvest proceeds in other investments at a lower interest rate. During periods of rising interest rates, the average life of a mortgage- backed security may extend, which may lock in a below-market interest rate, increase the security’s duration, and reduce the value of the security. • sovereign debt obligations risk: Investments in countries’ government debt obligations involve special risks. The issuer or governmental entity that controls the repayment of sovereign debt may not be able or willing to repay the principal and/or interest when due in accordance with the terms of such debt. • loan risk: Investments in loans are in many cases subject to the risks associated with below-investment grade securities. Investments in loans are also subject to special risks, including, among others, the risk that (i) if the Fund holds a loan through another financial institution, or relies on a financial institution to administer the loan, the Fund’s receipt of principal and interest on the loan is subject to the credit risk of that financial institution; (ii) loans in which the Fund invests typically pay interest at floating rates, and the borrower may have the ability to change or adjust the interest rate on a loan or under circumstances that would be unfavorable to the Fund; (iii) it is possible that any collateral securing a loan may be insufficient or unavailable to the Fund; (iv) investments in highly leveraged loans or loans of stressed, distressed, or defaulted issuers may be subject to significant credit and liquidity risk; (v) transactions in loans may settle on a delayed basis, and the Fund potentially may not receive the proceeds from the sale of a loan for a substantial period of time after the sale; and (vi) loans may be difficult to value and may be illiquid, which may adversely affect an investment in the Fund. It is unclear whether the protections of the securities laws against fraud and misrepresentation extend to loans and other forms of direct indebtedness. In the absence of definitive regulatory guidance, the Fund relies on the Adviser’s research in an attempt to avoid situations where fraud or misrepresentation could adversely affect the Fund. There can be no assurance that the Adviser’s efforts in this regard will be successful. • high yield risk: The risk that debt instruments rated below investment grade or debt instruments that are unrated and determined by the Adviser to be of comparable quality are predominantly speculative. These instruments have a higher degree of default risk and may be less liquid than higher-rated bonds. These instruments may be subject to greater price volatility due to such factors as specific corporate developments, interest rate sensitivity, negative perceptions of high yield investments generally, and less secondary market liquidity. 26 DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund

    September 30, 2015 • leverage risk: Leverage is a speculative technique that may expose the Fund to greater risk and increased costs. When leverage is used, the net asset value and market price of the Fund’s shares and the Fund’s investment return will likely be more volatile. • inverse floaters and related securities risk: Investments in inverse floaters, residual interest tender option bonds and similar instruments expose the Fund to the same risks as investments in debt securities and derivatives, as well as other risks, including those associated with leverage and increased volatility. An investment in these securities typically will involve greater risk than an investment in a fixed rate security. Distributions on inverse floaters, residual interest tender option bonds and similar instruments will typically bear an inverse relationship to short term interest rates and typically will be reduced or, potentially, eliminated as interest rates rise. • foreign currency risk: The Fund’s investments in or exposure to foreign currencies or in securities or instruments that trade, or receive revenues, in foreign currencies are subject to the risk that those currencies will decline in value relative to the U.S. dollar or, in the case of hedging positions (if used), that the U.S. dollar will decline in value relative to the currency being hedged. • derivatives risk: Derivatives are subject to a number of risks applicable to other investments, such as liquidity risk, issuer risk, credit risk, interest rate risk, leverage risk, counterparty risk, management risk and, if applicable, smaller company risk. They also involve the risk of mispricing or improper valuation, the risk of unfavorable or ambiguous documentation, and the risk that changes in the value of a derivative may not correlate perfectly with an underlying asset, currency, interest rate or index. • counterparty risk: The Fund will be subject to credit risk with respect to the counterparties to the derivative contracts (whether a clearing corporation in the case of exchange-traded instruments or another third party in the case of over-the-counter instruments) and other instruments entered into directly by the Fund. 11. Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements In May 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2015-07, which removes the requirement to categorize within the fair value hierarchy all investments for which fair value is measured using the net asset value per share practical expedient. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015 and for interim periods within those years and early adoption is permitted. Management is currently evaluating the implications of these changes and their impact on the financial statements. 12. Subsequent Events In preparing these financial statements, the Fund has evaluated events and transactions for potential recognition or disclosure through the date the financial statements were issued. The Fund has determined there are no subsequent events that would need to be disclosed in the Fund’s financial statements. Annual Report September 30, 2015 27

    Report of Independent Registered Accounting Firm To the Shareholders and Board of Trustees of DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund: We have audited the accompanying statement of assets and liabilities of DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund (the “Fund”), including the schedule of investments, as of September 30, 2015, and the related statements of operations and cash flows for the year then ended, the statement of changes in net assets for each of the two years in the period then ended, and the financial highlights for each of the periods presented. These financial statements and financial highlights are the responsibility of the Fund’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements and financial highlights based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements and financial highlights are free of material misstatement. The Fund is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Fund’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. Our procedures included confirmation of securities owned as of September 30, 2015, by correspondence with the custodian, brokers, and agent banks; where replies were not received from brokers and agent banks, we performed other auditing procedures. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, such financial statements and financial highlights referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund as of September 30, 2015, the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended, the changes in its net assets for each of the two years in the period then ended, and the financial highlights for each of the periods presented, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

    (Unaudited) Federal Tax Information September 30, 2015 For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015, certain dividends paid by the Fund may be subject to a maximum tax rate of 15%, (20% for taxpayers with taxable income greater than $400,000 for single individuals and $450,000 for married couples filing jointly) as provided for by the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 and the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. The percentage of dividends declared from ordinary income designated as qualified dividend income was as follows: Qualified Dividend Income 0.00% For corporate shareholders, the percent of ordinary income distributions qualifying for the corporate dividends received deduction for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015 was as follows: Dividends Received Deduction 0.00% The percentage of taxable ordinary income distributions that are designated as short-term capital gain distributions under Internal Revenue Section 871(k)(2)(c) for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015 was as follows: Qualified Short-term Gains 0.00% The percentage of taxable ordinary income distributions that are designated as interest related dividends under Internal Revenue Section 871(k)(1)(C) for the Fund was as follows: Qualified Interest Income 59.88% Shareholders are advised to consult their own tax adviser with respect to the tax consequences of their investment in the Fund. Additional Information Regarding the Fund’s Investment Activities Investments in Pools of Loans: The Fund may invest in pools of loans through mortgage- or other asset-backed securities, where a trust or other entity issues interests in the loans, some of which interests may be senior to others. Alternatively, the Fund may invest directly in pools of loans, itself or with other clients of the Adviser. The Fund’s direct investments in pools of loans present risks that may differ from the Fund’s investments in mortgage- and other asset-backed securities. For example, if it were to invest directly in such a pool without any co-investors, the Fund would incur all losses incurred on the loans acquired in the pool. However, if the Fund were to invest in a senior tranche of a mortgage- or other asset-backed security, it might have a more limited exposure to losses on the loans. In connection with the Fund’s direct purchase of certain loan portfolios, the Fund will incur costs, which may include the costs of various diligence-related services. The diligence-related services the Fund may require in connection with such investments may include, without limitation, loan file review, underwriting documentation review, and site visits. The Adviser would typically rely on information and analyses furnished as part of these diligence-related services in determining whether to invest in a particular loan portfolio. The costs associated with investments in a pool of loans may be significant and will reduce the performance contribution of such investments. Original Issuance, Subordinated Tranche Investments: The Fund may invest in any level of the capital structure of an issuer of mortgage-backed or asset- backed securities, including the equity or “first loss” tranche. Senior tranche investments in mortgage-backed or asset-backed securities are paid from the cash flows from the underlying assets before the junior tranches and equity or “first loss” tranches. Any losses on the underlying assets are first borne by the equity tranches, next by less junior tranches, and finally by the senior tranches. Accordingly, subordinated tranche investments, and especially “first loss” tranches, involve greater risk of loss than more senior tranches. The subordinated tranches the Fund may buy include those rated below investment grade or unrated instruments of similar credit quality. Below investment grade bonds are high yield, high risk bonds, commonly known as junk bonds. The Adviser may aggregate the Fund’s order for an investment in, or sale of, an interest in a subordinated tranche, including investments at original issuance, with those of one or more other DoubleLine funds and/or other clients of the Adviser. Certain of these investments may involve investor participants incurring diligence-related or structuring costs and expenses. Those costs and expenses will be allocated to all of the accounts, including the Fund, participating in the aggregated transaction pro rata based on the amount of investment made by each account participating in the transaction. The Fund’s participation in any such aggregated transaction will be subject to a number of conditions intended to result in the fair and equitable treatment of each participating account, including the Fund. For example, the Fund will not incur diligence- or structuring-related expenses in connection with any such transaction in excess of 0.50% of the value of the Fund’s investment in the structured product without the Fund’s Board of Trustees review of those expenses. Affiliated Investments: The Adviser is, and may be in the future, affiliated with certain large financial institutions (“affiliates”) that hold interests in an entity that are of a different class or type than the class or type of interest held by the Fund. Conflicts may arise in cases where the Fund and affiliates invest in different parts of an issuer’s capital structure, such as when an affiliate holds securities in an entity that are senior or junior to the securities held by the Fund, which could mean that the affiliate will be entitled to different payments or other rights, or that in a workout or other distressed scenario the interests of the affiliate might be adverse to those of the Fund and the affiliate and the Fund might have disparate investment outcomes. For example, an affiliate may acquire a loan, loan participation, or a loan assignment of a particular borrower in which one or more Funds have an equity investment.

    (Unaudited) Additional Information Regarding the Fund’s Investment Activities (Cont.) September 30, 2015 the terms and conditions of any such investments, or any subsequent amendments or waivers, the Adviser may find that its own interests, the interests of an affiliate, and/or the interests of the Fund could conflict. The Adviser may seek to avoid such conflicts in certain circumstances when investing on behalf of its clients, including the Fund, and, as a result, the Adviser may choose not to make certain investments on behalf of the Fund and/or its other clients. Those foregone investment opportunities may adversely affect the Fund’s performance if similarly attractive opportunities are not available or cannot be identified. 30 DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund

    (Unaudited) Dividend Reinvestment Plan September 30, 2015 Unless the registered owner of Common Shares elects to receive cash by contacting U.S. Bancorp Fund Services, LLC (the “Plan Administrator”), all dividends, capital gains and returns of capital, if any, declared on Common Shares will be automatically reinvested by the Plan Administrator for shareholders in the Fund’s Automatic Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the “Plan”), in additional Common Shares. Common Shareholders who elect not to participate in the Plan will receive all dividends and other distributions payable in cash directly to the shareholder of record (or, if the Common Shares are held in street or other nominee name, then to such nominee) by the Plan Administrator as dividend disbursing agent. Participation in the Plan is completely voluntary and may be terminated or resumed at any time without penalty by providing notice in writing to the Plan Administrator at least 5 days prior to the dividend/distribution record date; otherwise such termination or resumption will be effective with respect to any subsequently declared dividend or other distribution. Whenever the Fund declares an income dividend, a capital gain distribution or other distribution (collectively referred to as “dividends”) payable either in shares or cash, non-participants in the Plan will receive cash and participants in the Plan will receive a number of Common Shares, determined in accordance with the following provisions. The Common Shares will be acquired by the Plan Administrator for the participants’ accounts, depending upon the circumstances described below, either (i) through receipt of additional unissued but authorized Common Shares from the Fund (“Newly Issued Common Shares”) or (ii) by purchase of outstanding Common Shares on the open market (“Open- Market Purchases”) on the New York Stock Exchange or elsewhere. If, on the payment date for any Dividend, the market price per Common Share plus estimated brokerage trading fees is equal to or greater than the NAV per Common Share (such condition is referred to here as “market premium”), the Plan Administrator shall receive Newly Issued Common Shares, including fractions of shares from the Fund for each Plan participant’s account. The number of Newly Issued Common Shares to be credited to each participant’s account will be determined by dividing the dollar amount of the Dividend by the NAV per Common Share on the date of issuance; provided that, if the NAV per Common Share is less than or equal to 95% of the current market value on the date of issuance, the dollar amount of the Dividend will be divided by 95% of the market price per Common Share on the date of issuance for purposes of determining the number of shares issuable under the Plan. If, on the payment date for any Dividend, the NAV per Common Share is greater than the market value plus estimated brokerage trading fees (such condition being referred to here as a “market discount”), the Plan Administrator will seek to invest the Dividend amount in Common Shares acquired on behalf of the participants in Open-Market Purchases. In the event of a market discount on the payment date for any Dividend, the Plan Administrator will have until the last business day before the next date on which the Common Shares trade on an “ex-dividend” basis or in no event more than 30 days after the record date for such Dividend, whichever is sooner (the “Last Purchase Date”), to invest the Dividend amount in Common Shares acquired in Open-Market Purchases. It is contemplated that the Fund will pay monthly Dividends. If, before the Plan Administrator has completed its Open-Market Purchases, the market price per Common Share exceeds the NAV per Common Share, the average per Common Share purchase price paid by the Plan Administrator may exceed the NAV of the Common Shares, resulting in the acquisition of fewer Common Shares than if the Dividend had been paid in Newly Issued Common Shares on the Dividend payment date. If the Plan Administrator is unable to invest the full Dividend amount in Open-Market Purchases during the purchase period or if the market discount shifts to a market premium during the purchase period, the Plan Administrator may cease making Open-Market Purchases and may instead receive the Newly Issued Common Shares from the Fund for each participant’s account, in respect of the uninvested portion of the Dividend, at the NAV per Common Share at the close of business on the Last Purchase Date provided that, if the NAV is less than or equal to 95% of the then current market price per Common Share, the dollar amount of the Dividend will be divided by 95% of the market price on the date of issuance for purposes of determining the number of shares issuable under the Plan. The Plan Administrator maintains all registered shareholders’ accounts in the Plan and furnishes written confirmation of all transactions in the accounts, including information needed by shareholders for tax records. Common Shares in the account of each Plan participant will be held by the Plan Administrator in non-certificated form in the name of the Plan participant, and each shareholder proxy will include those shares purchased or received pursuant to the Plan. The Plan Administrator will forward all proxy solicitation materials to participants and vote proxies for shares held under the Plan in accordance with the instructions of the participants. In the case of Common Shares owned by a beneficial owner but registered with the Plan Administrator in the name of a nominee, such as a bank, a broker or other financial intermediary (each, a “Nominee”), the Plan Administrator will administer the Plan on the basis of the number of Common Shares certified from time to time by the Nominee as participating in the Plan. The Plan Administrator will not take instructions or elections from a beneficial owner whose Common Shares are registered with the Plan Administrator in the name of a Nominee. If a beneficial owner’s Common Shares are held through a Nominee and are not registered with the Plan Administrator as participating in the Plan, neither the beneficial owner nor the Nominee will be participants in or have distributions reinvested under the Plan with respect to those Common Shares. If a beneficial owner of Common Shares held in the name of a Nominee wishes to participate in the Plan, and the Shareholder’s Nominee is unable or unwilling to become a registered shareholder and a Plan participant with respect to those Common Shares on the beneficial owner’s behalf, the beneficial owner may request that the Nominee arrange to have all or a portion of his or her Common Shares registered with the Plan Administrator in the beneficial owner’s name so that the beneficial owner may be enrolled as a participant in the Plan with respect to those Common Shares. Please contact your Nominee for details or for other possible alternatives. Participants whose shares are registered with the Plan Administrator in the name of one Nominee may not be able to transfer the shares to another firm or Nominee and continue to participate in the Plan. There will be no brokerage charges with respect to Common Shares issued directly by the Fund as a result of dividends payable either in Common Shares or in cash. However, each participant will pay a pro rata share of brokerage trading fees incurred in connection with Open-Market Purchases. The automatic reinvestment of Dividends will not relieve participants of any federal, state or local income tax that may be payable (or required to be withheld) on such Dividends. Participants that request a sale of Common Shares through the Plan Administrator are subject to brokerage commissions. The Fund reserves the right to amend or terminate the Plan. There is no direct service charge to participants with regard to purchases in the Plan; however, the Fund reserves the right to amend the Plan to include a service charge payable by the participants. All correspondence, questions, or requests for additional information concerning the Plan should be directed to the Plan Administrator by calling toll-free (877) DLine11 (877-354-6311) or by writing to U.S. Bancorp Fund Services, LLC at P.O. Box 701, Milwaukee, WI 53201. Be sure to include your name, address, daytime phone number, Social Security or tax I.D. number and a reference to DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund on all correspondence.
