FS KKR Capital Corp. II Securities Investigation

Summary

Shareholders of FS KKR Capital Corp. may have Claims.

The White Law Group is investigating potential securities fraud claims involving the liability broker dealers may have for unsuitably recommending FS KKR Capital Corp. to investors.

FS KKR Capital Corp. II is a business development company reportedly “designed to provide a high level of current income.” The fund was launched at the end of 2019 as the product of a merger of four non-traded BDCs -- FS Investment Corporation II (FSIC II), FS Investment Corporation III (FSIC III), FS Investment Corporation IV (FSIC IV) and Corporate Capital Trust II (CCT II).

The fund primarily invests in floating rate, senior secured loans of private U.S. middle market companies and involves a high degree of risk and may be considered speculative, according to its prospectus.

“Because there is no public trading market for shares of FSK II’s common stock and FSK II is not obligated to effectuate a liquidity event by a specified date, if at all, it is unlikely that you will be able to sell your shares. If you are able to sell your shares before FSK II completes a liquidity event, it is likely that you will receive less than you paid for them. FSK II historically repurchased a limited number of shares pursuant to its share repurchase program, which has currently been suspended. FSK II may reinstate, amend, suspend or terminate its share repurchase program at any time. In addition, any such repurchases will be at the distribution reinvestment price on the date of repurchase.”

Similar to non-traded REITs, Business Development Companies (BDCS) are illiquid investments. Investors looking to sell BDCs, such as FS KKR Capital Corp. II, often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale.

According to Central Trade & Transfer, secondary market for BDCs and non-traded REITs, shares of FS KKR Capital Corp. II were recently sold for $5.76 per share. This may mean losses to investors, as the original purchase price was $10.00 share.

The White Law Group is currently representing many BDC investors in claims against the brokerage firms that recommended products like FS KKR Capital Corp. II.

These claims result when broker-dealers fail to perform adequate due diligence on the investments before offering them for sale to their clients. Additionally the brokerage firms often fail to determine whether the investments were appropriate in light of their clients’ age, investment, experience, net worth, and tolerance for risk.
