Disclosure Related to Administrative Class Shares of

PIMCO CommoditiesPLUS® Strategy Fund (the “Fund”)

The Board of Trustees of PIMCO Funds (the “Trust”) has approved a Plan of Liquidation for Administrative Class Shares of the Fund pursuant to which Administrative Class shares of the Fund will be liquidated (the “Liquidation”) on or about March 12, 2021 (“Liquidation Date”). This date may be changed without notice at the discretion of the Trust’s officers.

Suspension of Sales. Effective February 19, 2021, the Fund will no longer sell Administrative Class shares to new investors or existing shareholders (except through reinvested dividends), including through exchanges into Administrative Class shares of the Fund from other funds of the Trust or funds of PIMCO Equity Series.

Mechanics. In connection with the Liquidation, any Administrative Class share of the Fund outstanding on the Liquidation Date will be automatically redeemed as of the close of business on the Liquidation Date. The proceeds of any such redemption will be equal to the net asset value of such shares after such Fund has paid or provided for all of its charges, taxes, expenses and liabilities attributable to its Administrative Class shares. The distribution to shareholders of these liquidation proceeds will occur as soon as practicable, and will be made to all Administrative Class shareholders of record of the Fund at the time of the Liquidation. PIMCO will bear all operational expenses in connection with the Liquidation pursuant to the Second Amended and Restated Supervision and Administration Agreement between the Trust and PIMCO.

Other Alternatives. At any time prior to the Liquidation Date, Administrative Class shareholders of the Fund may redeem their Administrative Class shares of the Fund and receive the net asset value thereof, pursuant to the procedures set forth under “Purchases, Redemptions and Exchanges – Redeeming Shares” in the Prospectus. At any time prior to the Liquidation Date, shareholders may also exchange their Administrative Class shares for Administrative Class shares of any other fund of the Trust or any fund of PIMCO Equity Series that offers that class, or for another share class of the same Fund, if eligible, without the payment of any applicable front-end sales charge. These exchange privileges are described in and subject to any restrictions set forth under “Purchases, Redemptions and Exchanges – Exchanging Shares” in the Prospectus and “Distribution of Trust Shares – Purchases, Exchanges and Redemptions” in the SAI.

U.S. Federal Income Tax Matters. For taxable Administrative Class shareholders, the automatic redemption of Administrative Class shares of the Fund on the Liquidation Date will generally be treated as any other redemption of shares, i.e., as a sale that may result in a gain or loss for federal income tax purposes. Instead of waiting until the Liquidation Date, an Administrative Class shareholder may voluntarily redeem his or her Administrative Class shares prior to the Liquidation Date to the extent that the shareholder wishes to realize any such gains or losses prior thereto. See “Tax Consequences” in the Prospectus. Shareholders should consult their tax advisers regarding the tax treatment of the Liquidation.

If you have any questions regarding the Liquidation, please contact the Trust at 1-888-877-4626.
