We present new calculations of the differential decay rates for
$H\to \ell^+\ell^- \gamma$ with $\ell=e$ or $\mu$ in the Standard
Model. The branching fractions and forward-backward asymmetries, defined
in terms of the flight direction of the photon relative to the
lepton momenta, depend on the cuts on energies and invariant masses
of the final state particles.
For typical choices of these cuts we find the branching ratios
$B(H\to e \bar e \gamma)=6.1\cdot 10^{-5}$ and $B(H\to \mu \bar \mu \gamma)=6.7\cdot 10^{-5}$ and the forward-backward asymmetries
$ \mathcal{A}^{(e)}_{\text{FB}}=0.366$ and

Secondary track (number) 04.
