Item 3.03. Material Modification to Rights of Security Holders.

On June 17, 2020, FS KKR Capital Corp. II (the “Company”) amended and restated its distribution reinvestment plan (the “Existing DRP” and, as amended and restated, the “Second Amended DRP”). The Second Amended DRP will be effective as of, and will first apply to the reinvestment of cash distributions paid on or after, June 17, 2020.

Under the Existing DRP, cash distributions to participating stockholders are reinvested in additional shares of common stock of the Company (“Shares”) at a purchase price determined by the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) or a committee thereof, in its sole discretion, that 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.

With respect to cash dividends or distributions (“Distributions”) to participating stockholders under the Second Amended DRP, the Company reserves the right to either issue new Shares or purchase Shares in the open market in connection with implementation of the Second Amended DRP. Unless the Company, in its sole discretion, otherwise directs DST Systems, Inc., the plan administrator and the Company’s transfer agent and registrar (the “Plan Administrator”), (A) if the per share Market Price (as defined in the Second Amended DRP) is equal to or greater than the estimated NAV Per Share (rounded up to the nearest whole cent) on the payment date for the Distribution, then the Company will issue Shares at the greater of (i) net asset value (“NAV”) or (ii) 95% of the Market Price; or (B) if the Market Price is less than the NAV, then, in the sole discretion of the Company, (i) Shares will be purchased in open market transactions for the accounts of participating stockholders to the extent practicable, or (ii) the Company will issue Shares at NAV. Pursuant to the terms of the Second Amended DRP, the number of Shares to be issued to a participating stockholder will be determined by dividing the total dollar amount of the Distribution payable to a participating stockholder by the price per Share at which the Company issues such Shares; provided, however, that Shares purchased in open market transactions by the Plan Administrator will be allocated to a participating stockholder based on the average purchase price, excluding any brokerage charges or other charges, of all Shares purchased in the open market with respect to such Distribution. No other material terms of the Existing DRP have been amended in connection with the Second Amended DRP.

The foregoing summary of the Second Amended DRP is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Second Amended DRP, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 4.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information set forth under the heading “Amended and Restated Bylaws” in Item 8.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference herein.


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure


On June 17, 2020, the Company issued a press release announcing certain of the matters described herein. The press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1.


The information in Item 7.01 and Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.


Item 8.01. Other Events


NYSE Listing


On June 17, 2020, shares of the Company’s common stock commenced trading on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) with the ticker symbol “FSKR” (the “Listing”). 


Amended and Restated Bylaws


On June 17, 2020, the Company’s Fourth Amended and Restated Bylaws (the “New Bylaws”) became effective concurrently with the Listing. A summary of certain provisions of the New Bylaws is set forth in the Company’s Registration Statement on Form 8-A. In addition, below is a summary of the material changes reflected in the New Bylaws. Specifically, the New Bylaws:




  Provide that any irregularity in providing notice of a meeting of stockholders will not affect the validity of the meeting and that the Company may postpone or cancel a meeting of stockholders by making a public announcement of the postponement or cancellation prior to the meeting (as opposed to providing written notice);
  Provide that, in an uncontested election, a nominee for director is to be elected by receiving the affirmative vote of a majority of the total votes cast for and against such nominee instead of a plurality;
  Provide that directors may be elected by a plurality of votes cast at a meeting of stockholders for which the secretary of the Company receives notice that a stockholder has nominated an individual for election in compliance with the requirements set forth in the New Bylaws and that the nomination is not withdrawn, and, as a result of which, the number of nominees is greater than the number of directors to be elected at the meeting;
  Require that a stockholder deliver notice of nominations or other business proposed by such stockholder further in advance of the meeting of stockholders at which such nomination or business is to be considered;
  Require additional information to be set forth in a stockholder’s notice proposing nominations or other business to be considered at a meeting of stockholders;
  Require that stockholder notice for nominations be accompanied by a certificate executed by the proposed nominee director;
  Provide that, if enough directors have withdrawn from a meeting to leave less than a quorum, action can be taken by a majority of the number of directors necessary to constitute a quorum at a meeting of the directors;
  Provide that written consent of the directors may be by electronic transmission;
  Confirm the power of the Board and stockholders to ratify prior actions or inactions by the Company;
  Provide the Board with procedural flexibility in the event of an emergency; and
  Remove conditions for receiving indemnification by the Company and provide that the indemnification provisions shall not limit other rights to which a person seeking indemnification or payment of expenses is entitled.


The description of the New Bylaws is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the text of the New Bylaws which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.


Company-Focused Investment Funds


Certain directors and officers of the Company and affiliates and employees of owners of the Company’s investment advisor, FS/KKR Advisor, LLC (“FS/KKR Advisor” and each, an “FSK-Related Investor”), committed approximately $18 million to an investment fund with aggregate commitments of up to approximately $124 million established to invest from time to time in shares of the Company and its affiliate, FS KKR Capital Corp. (“FSK”). The investment fund will be managed by a third party and the FSK-Related Investors will not exercise investment or voting control over the investment fund. This is the second vehicle established to purchase shares of the Company’s stock. Also as previously announced, certain affiliates of the owners of FS/KKR Advisor have also committed $100 million to a separate $350 million investment vehicle that may invest from time to time in shares of the Company and FSK. 


There can be no assurance that these investment funds will purchase any Company shares.
