FOURTH QUARTER ADJUSTMENTS (ITEMS OF NOTE)
The fourth quarter reported earnings figures included the following items of note:
TORONTO, Dec. 1, 2016 – TD Bank Group (“TD” or the “Bank”) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter ending October 31, 2016. Fourth quarter earnings were $2.3 billion, up 25% on a reported basis and 8% on an adjusted basis compared with the same quarter last year, reflecting growth in the U.S. Retail and Wholesale segments. Reported earnings for the year were $8.9 billion, an increase of 11% over last year and adjusted earnings of $9.3 billion increased by 6%.
“We are pleased with our performance this quarter and overall earnings growth in 2016,” said Bharat Masrani, Group President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our results this year demonstrate the strength of our diverse business mix, organic growth strategy and the investments we’ve made to become a more productive and customer-focused organization.”
Canadian Retail net income was $1,502 million for the fourth quarter compared with $1,496 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue growth of 3% and lower insurance claims were largely offset by higher non-interest expenses, the impact of a higher effective tax rate, and higher provisions for credit loss.
U.S. Retail net income was $701 million (US$536 million) for the fourth quarter compared with $595 million (US$452 million) on a reported basis and $646 million (US$491 million) on an adjusted basis for the fourth quarter last year.
The U.S. Retail Bank, which excludes the Bank’s investment in TD Ameritrade, generated net income of $608 million (US$465 million), an increase of 25% (26% in U.S. dollars) on a reported basis and 13% (14% in U.S. dollars) on an adjusted basis, compared with the fourth quarter last year. The growth in earnings reflects revenue growth, strong operating leverage, increased loan and deposit volume, and good credit quality.
TD Ameritrade contributed $93 million (US$71 million) in earnings to the segment compared with $109 million (US$84 million) for the same quarter last year.
Wholesale Banking net income was $238 million for the fourth quarter, an increase of 21% compared with the fourth quarter last year, reflecting revenue growth from higher origination activity in debt and equity capital markets, and fixed income trading, partially offset by lower equity trading revenue and advisory fees.
TD’s Common Equity Tier 1 Capital ratio on a Basel III fully phased-in basis was 10.4%.
“As we look to 2017, we remain focused on growing market share, making strategic investments in our businesses, and executing with determination to deliver on our purpose: to enrich the lives of our customers, communities and colleagues. If current conditions are sustained, we are well positioned to deliver in 2017,” said Masrani. “I would like to thank our colleagues for their dedication and valuable contributions this year, and our customers for the opportunity to serve them every day.”
