Code of Conduct

On November 7, 2014, as part of its periodic review of the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the "Code"), which applies to all of the directors, officers, and employees of the Company, the Board of Directors approved the 2014 Code of Conduct, which amends, restates, and replaces the Code in its entirety (the "Restated Code"). The Restated Code will become effective as of January 1, 2015. The revisions contained in the Restated Code include, among other things, current versions of certain policies and practices that the Company has already adopted and other non-substantive changes that enhance its readability and comprehension. The changes to the Code did not relate to or result in any waiver, explicit or implicit, of any provision of the Code, including those that are addressed by other Company policies. No substantive amendment to any element of the "code of ethics" definition enumerated in Item 406(b) of Regulation S-K was effectuated as a result of the Restated Code. This summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Code of Conduct.


Corporate Governance Guidelines

The Board of Directors of Franklin Electric has adopted these guidelines in its continuing effort to enhance its corporate governance. The Corporate Governance Committee of the Board will review and amend these guidelines as it deems necessary and appropriate.
