ITEM 8.01 OTHER EVENTS Distribution Declared On July 8, 2014, KBS Real Estate Investment Trust II, Inc.'s (the "Company") board of directors declared a distribution in the amount of $3.75 per share of common stock to stockholders of record as of the close of business on September 15, 2014. The Company expects to pay this distribution on or about September 23, 2014. This distribution will be funded from the Company's proceeds from the dispositions of real estate properties between May 2014 and July 2014 as well as cash on hand resulting from the repayment or sale of four real estate loans receivable during 2013 and 2014. If the Company completes the disposition of additional assets prior to the record date of September 15, 2014, the Company's board of directors may declare additional distributions to the Company's stockholders that would be paid at the same time. This distribution will be included in each stockholder's Form 1099 for the year ending December 31, 2014 along with all other distributions made during the year. While the Company does not have sufficient information to calculate the exact characterization of this specific distribution, the Company currently estimates that this distribution would consist of: (1) approximately $0.95 to $1.05 of long-term capital gains,

(2) approximately $0.35 to $0.45 of depreciation recapture, and

(3) the remainder will be treated as a return of capital.

The total distributions for all of 2014 and the total taxable income for the full year will impact the determination of the final amount of ordinary income and return of capital that will be reported on each stockholder's Form 1099 for 2014. So while a portion of this specific distribution would be characterized as a return of capital on a stand-alone basis, the total return of capital amount for 2014 will likely differ significantly. This distribution will also reduce the Company's estimated value per share and this reduction will be reflected in the Company's updated estimated value per share, which the Company expects to update in September 2014, essentially concurrently with the distribution. Each stockholder is urged to consult his or her tax advisor regarding the tax consequences of the Company's distributions in light of his or her particular investment or tax circumstances.
