Item 8.01.

Other Events.

On November 23, 2020, FS KKR Capital Corp. II, a Maryland corporation (“FSKR”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with FS KKR Capital Corp., a Maryland corporation (“FSK,” and together with FSKR, the “Funds”), Rocky Merger Sub, Inc., a Maryland corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of FSK (“Merger Sub”), and FS/KKR Advisor, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and investment adviser to each of the Funds (the “FS/KKR Advisor”). The Merger Agreement provides that, subject to the conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will merge with and into FSKR, with FSKR continuing as the surviving company and as a wholly-owned subsidiary of FSK (the “First Merger”), and, immediately thereafter, FSKR will merge with and into FSK, with FSK continuing as the surviving company (together with the First Merger, the “Merger”).

On April 8, 2021, a stockholder complaint was filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, against FSKR and the members of the Board of Directors of FSKR (the “FSKR Board”), entitled Solar v. FS KKR Capital Corp. II, et al., Index No. 652317/2021 (the “Merger Filing”). The complaint alleges, among other things, that the joint definitive proxy statement/prospectus of FSK and FSKR (the “Proxy Statement”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 1, 2021 contained materially misleading and incomplete disclosures. The complaint seeks, among other things, supplemental disclosures be made to the Proxy Statement to address the alleged materially misleading and incomplete disclosures and to enjoin the closing of the Merger. In addition, certain other FSKR stockholders, acting through counsel, have also requested that FSKR and/or FSK provide supplemental disclosures to the Proxy Statement.

FSKR, the individual defendants and FSK believe that FSKR and FSK have previously disclosed all information required to be disclosed to ensure that their respective stockholders can make an informed vote at the Special Meeting (as defined below) and that the additional disclosures requested by the plaintiff and the requesting stockholders are immaterial. Accordingly, FSKR, the individual defendants and FSK believe these claims are without merit. However, in order to reduce the costs, risks and uncertainties inherent in litigation, FSKR and FSK have determined to voluntarily supplement the Proxy Statement as described in this Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Report”). Nothing in this Report shall be deemed an admission of the legal necessity or materiality under applicable laws of any of the disclosures set forth herein. To the contrary, FSKR, the FSKR Board, FSK and the Board of Directors of FSK specifically deny all allegations in the Merger Filing and the stockholder requests that any additional disclosure was or is required.

The FSKR Board, including all of the independent directors, continues to unanimously recommend that FSKR stockholders entitled to vote at the Special Meeting vote “FOR” the FSKR Merger Proposal (as defined in the Proxy Statement).

These supplemental disclosures will not affect the merger consideration to be issued by FSK in connection with the Merger or the timing of FSKR’s Special Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for May 21, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time, which will be held at 201 Rouse Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 19112 (the “Special Meeting”).
