(Exact name of Registrant as specified in its charter)
(Former name or former address, if changed since last report)
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 December 11, 2012, the board of directors (the “Board”) of FS Investment Corporation (“FSIC”) declared a regular monthly cash distribution of $0.0675 per share. The monthly distribution will be paid on December 31, 2012 to stockholders of record on December 28, 2012.
Certain Information About Distributions
The determination of the tax attributes of FSIC’s distributions is made annually as of the end of FSIC’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. FSIC 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 FSIC’s 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.
On December 11, 2012, the Board adopted an amended and restated Code of Business Conduct, Ethics and Statement on the Prohibition of Insider Trading (the “Code of Ethics”) reflecting certain non-substantive changes.
A copy of the amended and restated Code of Ethics is attached hereto as Exhibit 14.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
This Current Report on Form 8-K may contain certain forward-looking statements, including statements with regard to the future performance of FSIC. Words such as “believes,” “expects,” “projects,” and “future” or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to the inherent uncertainties in predicting future results and conditions. Certain factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in these forward-looking statements, and some of these factors are enumerated in the filings FSIC makes with the Securities and Exchange Commission. FSIC undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
