Form 8-K for RAYMOND JAMES FINANCIAL INC

Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Regulation FD Disclosure,


Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

On November 22, 2011, the Company's Board of Directors promoted Dennis Zank to the position of Chief Operating Officer, effective January 3, 2012. Mr. Zank succeeds Chet Helck, who has held that office since 2002. Mr. Zank, age 57, has been the President of Raymond James & Associates, Inc. ("RJA"), since 2003. At RJA, one of the Company's broker-dealer subsidiaries, he had primary responsibility for its Private Client Group operations. Mr. Helck will continue to have responsibility for Private Client Group operations for our domestic and international broker-dealers.

On November 22, 2011, the Company's Board of Directors also adopted a new equity incentive plan, the Raymond James Financial, Inc. 2012 Stock Incentive Plan (the "new plan") and directed that it be submitted to shareholders for their approval at the Company's annual meeting on February 23, 2012. Although the new plan is an "omnibus plan" under which options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, dividend equivalent rights and cash can be awarded, the Company expects that it will continue its current practice of awarding only cash, options and restricted stock units (including dividend equivalent rights) for the foreseeable future. The new plan's initial share reservation will be 16,000,000 shares. In addition, under the new plan, the Company's existing equity award plans (i.e., the 2002 Incentive Stock Option Plan, the 1996 Stock Option Plan for Key Management Personnel, the Stock Option Plan for Outside Directors, the 2007 Stock Option Plan for Independent Contractors, the 2005 Restricted Stock Plan and the 2007 Stock Bonus Plan (the "predecessor plans")) will "pour over" into the new plan the shares remaining in those plans on the date of the approval by shareholders. Any shares that would otherwise return to the predecessor plans by virtue of forfeiture, termination or expiration of awards granted under the predecessor plans will also become available under the new plan. The new plan will be attached as an appendix to the Company's proxy statement for the February shareholder meeting. On November 22, 2011, contingent options for 25,000 shares each were granted under the new plan to Mr. Reilly, Mr. Zank and Mr. Julien as part of the Company's biennial option grant cycle to permit the use of the new plan's Internal Revenue Code section 162(m) provisions for those options.
