TORONTO, Feb. 25, 2016 – TD Bank Group (“TD” or the “Bank”) today announced its financial results for the first quarter ending January 31, 2016, which reflect growth in retail earnings.

“We are pleased to report adjusted earnings of $2.2 billion, up 6% from the first quarter last year,” said Bharat Masrani, Group President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our performance reflects organic growth, favourable currency translation and expense management.” The Bank also announced a dividend increase of 4 cents per common share for the dividend payable in April.

Canadian Retail
Canadian Retail net income was $1.5 billion, an increase of 4% over the first quarter last year. Higher earnings reflect loan, deposit and wealth asset volume growth and higher fee-based revenue, partially offset by lower margins, higher provision for credit losses, and a higher effective tax rate.

U.S. Retail
U.S. Retail net income was $751 million (US$552 million) in the first quarter. The U.S. Retail Bank, which excludes the Bank’s investment in TD Ameritrade, generated net income of $642 million (US$470 million), an increase of 20% (3% in U.S. dollars) compared with the first quarter last year. Earnings reflect volume growth and expense management initiatives, partially offset by higher provision for credit losses and lower margins.

TD Ameritrade contributed $109 million (US$82 million) in earnings to the segment, an increase of 21% (4% in U.S. dollars) compared with the first quarter last year.

Wholesale Banking
Wholesale Banking net income was $161 million, a decrease of 16% compared with the first quarter last year, reflecting a more challenging equity trading environment and lower security gains.

TD’s Common Equity Tier 1 Capital ratio on a Basel III fully phased-in basis was 9.9%, the same as last quarter.

“Our first quarter results demonstrate the ability of our diversified business model to perform in a challenging environment,” said Masrani. “Looking ahead, we remain focused on driving organic growth, improving our productivity, adapting and innovating with new initiatives and investments, and helping our customers achieve their goals.”
