Item 8.01.    Other Events


Company-Focused Investment Funds


FS KKR Capital Corp. (the “Company”) anticipates that certain directors and officers of the Company and affiliates and employees of owners of the Company’s investment advisor, FS/KKR Advisor, LLC, (the “FS/KKR Advisor” and each, an “FSK-Related Investor”) will commit up to 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. The FSK-Related Investors may fund their commitments from time to time with cash from the disposition of shares of the Company or cash from other sources. 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.


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 its affiliate, FS KKR Capital Corp. II (“FSK II”).


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


Reverse Stock Split


As previously disclosed, FSK II expects to implement a reverse stock split shortly prior to the listing of its shares of common stock on the New York Stock Exchange. In connection with such transaction, the Company also currently anticipates implementing a reverse stock split of its outstanding common stock. The Company intends that the reverse stock split will become effective in accordance with the terms of the Articles of Amendment to the Company’s charter effecting the reverse stock split upon acceptance of such amendment for record by the State Department of Assessments and Taxation of Maryland (“SDAT”). The Company also intends to file a separate Articles of Amendment to its charter with SDAT to provide that there will be no change in the par value of $0.001 per share as a result of the reverse stock split.

Some of these factors are enumerated in the filings the Company made with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The inclusion of forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation that any plans, estimates or expectations will be achieved.
