Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

On December 19, 2018, FS KKR Capital Corp., a Maryland corporation formerly known as FS Investment Corporation (“FSK”), completed its previously announced acquisition of Corporate Capital Trust, Inc., a Maryland Corporation (the “Company”), pursuant to that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of July 22, 2018, by and among FSK, the Company, IC Acquisition, Inc., a Maryland corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of FSK (“Merger Sub”), and FS/KKR Advisor, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and the investment adviser to FSK (the “Advisor”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the Company was first merged with and into Merger Sub, with the Company as the surviving corporation, and, immediately following such merger, the Company was then merged with and into FSK, with FSK as the surviving company (such transactions, the “Merger”). As a result of, and as of the effective time of, the Merger, the Company’s separate existence ceased.

In accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the time of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, each outstanding share of the Company’s common stock was converted into the right to receive 2.3552 shares of FSK’s common stock (with stockholders of the Company receiving cash in lieu of fractional shares of FSK’s common stock). As a result of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, FSK will issue an aggregate of approximately 292,326,586 shares of its common stock to former stockholders of the Company prior to any adjustment for the former stockholders of the Company receiving cash in lieu of fractional shares.

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement, a copy of which was filed by the Company as Exhibit 2.1 to its Current Report on Form 8-K filed on July 23, 2018 and is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule; Transfer of Listing

In connection with the closing of the Merger, the Company notified the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) of the consummation of the Merger and requested that NYSE file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a Form 25 Notification of Removal of Listing and/or Registration to delist the shares of Company common stock under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Trading of common shares of the Company on the NYSE is expected to be suspended before the opening of trading on December 20, 2018.


Item 3.03. Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders


The information required by Item 3.03 is contained in Items 2.01 and 3.01 and is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 5.01. Changes in Control of Registrant

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, each of the named executive officers and directors of the Company ceased to be named executive officers and directors of the Company as of the effective time of the Merger (and not because of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies, or practices).



Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.


On December 19, 2018, the Advisor issued a press release announcing, among other things, the closing of the Merger. The press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K.
