Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Operating income decreased $18.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019, as compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year, due to a 2% increase in operating expenses. Net income attributable to Franklin Resources, Inc. increased $74.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019 primarily due to investment and other income, net, as compared to net losses in the prior year, less the portion attributable to noncontrolling interests, partially offset by the decrease in operating income.
  • Diluted earnings per share increased for the three months ended December 31, 2019, consistent with the increase in net income and the impact of a 3% decrease in diluted average common shares outstanding primarily resulting from repurchases of shares of our common stock during the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2019.
