RICHMOND, Va., May 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kinsale Capital Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:KNSL) today announced a change in the location of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. In light of the public health concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, including federal and state restrictions on in-person gatherings, and to assist in protecting the health and well-being of our stockholders, employees and other attendees, NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Board has changed the location of the Annual Meeting from an in-person meeting to a virtual-only meeting. As previously announced, the Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The time and date of the Annual Meeting remain unchanged. However, the Annual Meeting will no longer be held at The Commonwealth Club, 401 W. Franklin Street, Richmond, VA 23220, but rather will be held virtually, with attendance via the Internet. You will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person.

We have designed the format of the Annual Meeting to ensure that stockholders are afforded the same rights and opportunities to participate as they would at an in-person meeting. As described in the proxy statement made available in connection with the Annual Meeting, you are entitled to attend and vote at the Annual Meeting if you held shares as of the close of business on March 30, 2020, the record date designated by the Board for the Annual Meeting, or if you hold a legal proxy for the meeting provided by your bank, broker or nominee.

Attending and Voting at the Annual Meeting. Many of our stockholders hold their shares through a broker, bank or other nominee (a “Beneficial Holder”) rather than directly in their own name (a “Record Holder”).
