Item 7.01                   Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

The 2019 annual meeting of stockholders (the “2019 Annual Meeting”) of Focus Financial Partners Inc. (the “Company”) will be held on Tuesday, May 28, 2019. The deadline for receipt of stockholder proposals for inclusion in the Company’s proxy statement and form of proxy for the 2019 Annual Meeting pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), will be March 22, 2019.

 

As the 2019 Annual Meeting date is not greater than 30 days before or greater than 60 days after May 1, 2019, the deadline for receipt of notice of a stockholder proposal or director nomination pursuant to the Company’s Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “Bylaws”) will remain as disclosed in the Bylaws, or January 1, 2019, which is the 120th day prior to May 1, 2019. Thus, the deadline by which notice of a stockholder proposal or director nomination must have been received at the Company’s executive offices to be considered timely has passed.

 

The information in this Current Report being furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and is not incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
