Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions:
On September 14, 2012, FS Investment Corporation II (the “Company”) determined to increase the Company’s public offering price from $10.00 per share to $10.05 per share and to increase the amount of the semi-monthly cash distributions payable to stockholders of record from $0.030208 per share to $0.030359 per share in order to maintain its annual distribution yield at 7.25% (based on the $10.05 public offering price).
The increase in the public offering price was effective as of the Company’s September 17, 2012 semi-monthly closing and first applied to subscriptions received from September 4, 2012 through September 16, 2012. The increase in the semi-monthly distributions to $0.030359 per share is expected to commence with the semi-monthly cash distributions to be declared in October 2012.
The purpose of the increase in the public offering price was to ensure that the Company’s net asset value per share did not exceed the Company’s offering price per share, after deduction of selling commissions and dealer manager fees, as required by the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.
A copy of the press release announcing the foregoing is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
