BlackRock Reports Third Quarter Diluted EPS Of $3.65, Or $3.47 As Adjusted

Additional Events Related to Certain Cash Management Funds

As discussed in BlackRock’s periodic reports, Barclays has provided capital support agreements to support certain cash management funds (bank-managed short-term investment funds or “STIFs”) acquired by BlackRock in the Barclays Global Investors acquisition from Barclays. On October 9, 2012, BlackRock, on behalf of two of these funds negotiated amendments to these capital support agreements to release Barclays from coverage provided for defaults on 52 covered securities (with an estimated value of approximately $750 million) held in the funds in exchange for a payment by Barclays to the funds of $70 million. This payment is an amount in excess of the payments that were expected under the Barclays capital support agreements. The Barclays capital support agreements will continue in effect for the remaining covered securities in these two funds.

Separately, on October 9, 2012, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency finalized amended rules governing STIFs to more closely align such funds with changes enacted in 2010 by the SEC for money market mutual funds. BlackRock is reviewing and evaluating its alternatives to ensure that the STIFs it manages are in compliance by the July 1, 2013 deadline.
