HARTFORD, Conn., July 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtus Convertible & Income Fund II (NYSE: NCZ), a closed-end fund, today announced that it has postponed payment of its monthly distribution of $0.0375 per share that was scheduled to be paid on July 1 and has postponed declaration of its monthly distribution of $0.0375 per share that was scheduled to be declared on July 1 for payment on August 1.

Recent market dislocations have caused the values of the Fund's portfolio securities to decline and, as a result, the Fund's asset coverage ratio for total leverage as of June 30, as calculated in accordance with the Investment Company Act of 1940, was below the 200% minimum asset coverage guideline. Compliance with the asset coverage ratio is required by the Fund's governing documents for declaration or payment of the monthly dividends. As a result, the Fund is not authorized to declare or pay its monthly distributions until the coverage ratio is in compliance. The Fund intends to resume declaration and payment of its monthly distributions once its coverage ratio is in compliance.
