(1) These shares were issued on June 1, 2012 in connection with a July 23, 2009 award of Class A Common Performance-Based Restricted Stock. The award - initially determined as a cash value - was subject to a three-year performance period, which ended April 30, 2012. The number of shares issued was determined by multiplying the cash value of the award by a three-year performance adjustment factor, adjusting upwards to account for dividends paid during the second and third years of the performance period, and then dividing that amount by $46.40, which was the closing price of the issuer's Class A common stock on the date of the grant.
(2) These are the number of shares acquired through the Brown-Forman Corporation Employee Stock Purchase Program as of close of business on May 25, 2012.
(3) Held in 401(k) account as of May 31, 2012.

Note: File three copies of this Form, one of which must be manually signed. If space is insufficient, see Instruction 6 for procedure.

Potential persons who are to respond to the collection of information contained in this form are not required to respond unless the form displays a currently valid OMB number.
