Management Discussion
  • In accordance with financial accounting standards on consolidation, we consolidate and separately identify amounts relating to certain sponsored investment products. The consolidation of these investment products has no impact on Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Legg Mason, Inc. and does not have a material impact on our consolidated operating results. To the extent we have an investment in a consolidated investment product, the related gains and losses will impact Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Legg Mason, Inc. See Notes 1 and 20 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information regarding the consolidation of investment products.
  • Total Operating Revenues for the year ended March 31, 2020, increased 1% to $2.92 billion, as compared to $2.90 billion for the year ended March 31, 2019, primarily due to an increase in investment advisory fees from separate accounts and funds, reflecting higher average AUM, and an increase of $21.2 million in performance fees that were not passed through as compensation expense. These increases were offset in part by a $32.6 million decrease in distribution and servicing fees, reflecting a shift to lower fee earning mutual fund share classes and lower average fund AUM earning distribution fees, and a $7.1 million decrease in performance fees that were passed through as compensation expense.
  • Total Operating Revenues for the year ended March 31, 2019, were $2.90 billion, a decrease of 8% from $3.14 billion for the year ended March 31, 2018. The decrease was primarily due to a $142.9 million decrease in performance fees, $83.2 million of which was in performance fees that are not passed through as compensation expense, as further discussed below. A decrease in our operating revenue yield to 38 basis points for the year ended March 31, 2019, from 39 basis points for the year ended March 31, 2018, also contributed to the decrease.
