PHILADELPHIA and NEW YORK, May 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- FS KKR Capital Corp. II (FSK II) announced today that the 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the Annual Meeting) has been further postponed from May 15, 2020 to June 8, 2020 at 1:00 p.m., Eastern Time, due to COVID-19 (more commonly known as the Coronavirus). FSK II's first priority is to protect the health and safety of its stakeholders.
FSK II intends to hold the Annual Meeting in person, as previously announced, at 201 Rouse Boulevard, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19112. However, FSK II is sensitive to the public health and travel concerns its stockholders may have and recommendations that public health officials may issue in light of the evolving COVID-19 situation. As a result, FSK II might hold a virtual only meeting instead of holding the meeting in Philadelphia, PA. In that event, the Annual Meeting will be conducted solely virtually, on June 8, 2020 at 1:00 p.m., Eastern Time, via live audio webcast, and FSK II's stockholders or their proxyholders could participate, vote, and examine FSK II's stockholder list at the virtual annual meeting by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/FSKKRcapcorpII2020 and using the 16-digit control number included with the proxy statement. If FSK II decides to hold a virtual meeting, FSK II intends to make an announcement at www.fsproxy.com. Stockholders will only be able to participate in the Annual Meeting electronically if FSK II decides to hold a virtual meeting, instead of holding an in-person meeting in Philadelphia, PA.
