Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On September 15, 2010, FS Investment Corporation (“FSIC”) announced that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) determined to increase the amount of semi-monthly distributions payable to shareholders of record from $0.03125 per share to $0.03185 per share, effective October 1, 2010. Based on FSIC’s current public offering price of $10.40 per share, the expected increase in the semi-monthly distribution amount would result in an increase in the annual distribution yield on FSIC’s common stock from 7.2% to 7.35% per annum.

FSIC also announced that its Board declared two semi-monthly cash distributions of $0.03125 per share each that will be paid on September 30, 2010 to shareholders of record as of September 13, 2010 and September 29, 2010, respectively, and a special one-time cash distribution in an aggregate amount of $300,000 that will be paid on October 29, 2010 to shareholders of record on October 29, 2010.

A copy of the press release announcing the foregoing is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
