FS INVESTMENT CORP II FILES (8-K) Disclosing Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Other Events

July 2, 2014



Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On June 30, 2014, the board of directors (the "Board") of FS Investment Corporation II (the "Company") declared a regular monthly cash distribution of $0.062833 per share. The regular monthly cash distribution will be paid on or about July 31, 2014 to stockholders of record on July 30, 2014.

Certain Information About Distributions

The determination of the tax attributes of the Company's distributions is made annually as of the end of the Company's fiscal year based upon its taxable income and distributions paid, in each case, for the full year. Therefore, a determination as to the tax attributes of the distributions made on a quarterly basis may not be representative of the actual tax attributes for a full year. The Company intends to update stockholders quarterly with an estimated percentage of its distributions that resulted from taxable ordinary income. The actual tax characteristics of distributions to stockholders will be reported to stockholders annually on Form 1099-DIV. The payment of future distributions on the Company's shares of common stock is subject to the discretion of the Board and applicable legal restrictions and, therefore, there can be no assurance as to the amount or timing of any such future distributions.

The Company may fund its cash distributions to stockholders from any sources of funds legally available to it, including expense reimbursements from Franklin Square Holdings, L.P., as well as proceeds from the sale of shares of the Company's common stock, borrowings, net investment income from operations, capital gains proceeds from the sale of assets, non-capital gains proceeds from the sale of assets and dividends or other distributions paid to it on account of preferred and common equity investments in portfolio companies. The Company has not established limits on the amount of funds it may use from available sources to make distributions. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to pay distributions at a specific rate or at all.

Item 8.01. Other Events.



Effective July 1, 2014, the Company increased the price at which it issues shares under its distribution reinvestment plan (the "DRP") from $9.54 per share to $9.64 per share. As previously disclosed by the Company, the price at which shares are issued under the DRP is determined by the Board or a committee thereof, in its sole discretion, and is (i) not less than the net asset value per share determined in good faith by the Board or a committee thereof, in its sole discretion, immediately prior to the payment of the distribution (the "NAV Per Share") and (ii) not more than 2.5% greater than the NAV Per Share as of such date. The purpose of this increase was to ensure that the Company did not issue shares under the DRP at a price per share that was below the NAV Per Share.
