FRANKLIN RESOURCES, INC.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
June 30, 2012
(Unaudited)
Note 1 Basis of Presentation
The unaudited interim financial statements of Franklin Resources, Inc. (“Franklin”) and its consolidated subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) included herein have been prepared by the Company in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Under these rules and regulations, some information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been shortened or omitted. Management believes that all adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the financial position and the results of operations for the periods shown have been made. All adjustments are normal and recurring. These financial statements should be read together with the Company’s audited financial statements included in its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011 (“fiscal year 2011”). Certain amounts for the comparative prior fiscal year period have been reclassified to conform to the financial statement presentation as of and for the period ended June 30, 2012.
In the quarter ended September 30, 2011, the Company discontinued the classification of a portion of the investment management fees earned by certain of its non-U.S. subsidiaries as sales and distribution fees. Amounts for the comparative prior fiscal year period have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. This reclassification had no impact on previously reported net income or financial position and does not represent a restatement of any previously published financial results. See Note 1 – Significant Accounting Policies in the Company's Form 10-K for fiscal year 2011.
The following table presents the effects of the changes in the presentation of operating revenues to the Company’s previously-reported condensed consolidated statement of income:

Note 2 New Accounting Guidance
On October 1, 2011, the Company adopted new Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) guidance that requires separate disclosures about purchases, sales, issuances and other settlements in the rollforward of activity in Level 3 fair value measurements.
On January 1, 2012, the Company adopted new FASB guidance that requires additional qualitative discussion for the sensitivity of recurring Level 3 fair value measurements to changes in the unobservable inputs, quantitative disclosure about the significant unobservable inputs used for all Level 3 measurements, and the categorization by level of the fair value hierarchy for financial instruments that are not measured at fair value.
See Note 7 - Fair Value Measurements for the expanded disclosures.
There were no significant updates to new accounting guidance not yet adopted by the Company as disclosed in its Form 10-K for fiscal year 2011.

Note 5 Variable Interest Entities
The Company has interests in various types of variable interest entities (“VIEs”). It is the primary beneficiary of collateralized loan obligations (“CLOs”) and an auto loan securitization trust and therefore consolidates these VIEs. Other VIEs, for which the Company is not the primary beneficiary, primarily consist of certain sponsored and other investment products (collectively “other investment products”) from which the Company earns investment management and related services fees and/or has an equity ownership interest in the VIE.

Transfers into Level 1 from Level 2 were $1.1 million and $26.8 million during the three and nine months ended June 30, 2012, and transfers into Level 2 from Level 1 were nil and $0.9 million during the same periods. The securities that were transferred into Level 1 had adjustments to the quoted market prices for observable price movements within country-specific market proxies due to after hour trades or decreased liquidity of the market proxies, or were based on prices of comparable or similar securities because quoted market prices were not available, during the previous reporting periods but not in the current period. The securities that were transferred into Level 2 were valued based on prices of comparable or similar securities because quoted market prices were not available in the current period. There were no significant transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 during the three and nine months ended June 30, 2011.
