ATLANTA, April 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Preferred Apartment Communities, Inc. (NYSE: APTS) ("PAC" or the "Company") today announced that its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders has been changed to a strictly virtual meeting format due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and to support the health and well-being of our employees, stockholders and community. The Annual Meeting will still be held at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time on May 7, 2020 as previously announced, but you will only be able to access the Annual Meeting by remote communication. Additional details of the business to be presented at the Annual Meeting can be found in the Updated Notice of 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and Proxy Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (our "Proxy Statement"). We expect to resume in-person or hybrid annual meetings beginning with our 2021 annual meeting.
