Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.



On September 2, 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 September 30, 2014 to stockholders of record on September 29, 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. ("Franklin Square"), 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 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
