Management Discussion
  • Operating income decreased $23.4 million and $42.2 million for the three and six months ended March 31, 2020, as compared to the same periods in the prior fiscal year, as 7% and 3% decreases in operating revenues were partially offset by 7% and 3% decreases in operating expenses. Net income attributable to Franklin Resources, Inc. decreased $288.4 million and $213.8 million for the three and six months ended March 31, 2020 primarily due to the impact of steep declines in market valuations amid global concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic in the three months ended March 31, 2020, which resulted in net investment and other losses of $249.0 million and $189.4 million, as compared to net gains of $118.7 million and $59.6 million in the prior year, less the portion attributable to noncontrolling interests, as well as the decreases in operating income.
