    TORONTO, Feb. 20 /CNW/ - First Trust/Highland Capital Floating Rate
Income Fund II ("the Fund") announces a change in its monthly distribution.
Effective immediately the annualized distribution rate will be reduced from 7%
to 6% on the initial subscription price of $10.00 per unit. The distribution
for the month of February 2008 will be $0.0500 per unit and is payable on
March 14, 2008 to Unitholders of record on February 29, 2008.
    The decision to reduce monthly distributions was made as a result of the
current market environment, the decline in short-term interest rates and the
strength of the Canadian dollar. The Fund's investment objectives are to: (i)
provide holders of Units with monthly distributions which will fluctuate with
changes in U.S. short-term interest rates; and, preserve and enhance the net
asset value per Unit in order to return the original subscription price of the
Units ($10 per Unit) to Unitholders on or about May 31, 2015.
