TORONTO, Aug. 25, 2016 – TD Bank Group (“TD” or the “Bank”) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ending July 31, 2016, reflecting growth in retail and wholesale earnings.
“TD’s results demonstrate the strength of our diversified business model, with adjusted earnings of $2.4 billion, up 6% from the third quarter last year,” said Bharat Masrani, Group President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our performance reflects both organic growth and a focus on expense management.”
Canadian Retail net income was $1.5 billion compared with $1.6 billion in the same quarter last year. Revenue grew 3% compared with the third quarter last year and was more than offset by higher insurance claims largely due to the Fort McMurray wildfire, and a higher effective tax rate.
U.S. Retail net income was $788 million (US$609 million) this quarter compared with $674 million (US$543 million) on a reported basis and $650 million (US$524 million) on an adjusted basis in the third quarter last year.
The U.S. Retail Bank, which excludes the Bank’s investment in TD Ameritrade, generated net income of $663 million (US$512 million), an increase of 14% (9% in U.S. dollars) on a reported basis and 19% (14% in U.S. dollars) on an adjusted basis compared with the third quarter last year. Earnings reflect revenue and customer balance growth and a focus on expense management.
TD Ameritrade contributed $125 million (US$97 million) in earnings to the segment, an increase of 36% (31% in U.S. dollars) compared with the third quarter last year reflecting asset growth, higher trading volumes, and a favourable tax liability adjustment, partially offset by higher operating expenses.
Wholesale Banking net income was $302 million, an increase of 26% compared with the third quarter last year, reflecting higher origination activity across debt and equity capital markets, corporate lending growth and trading-related revenue.
Common Equity Tier 1 Capital ratio on a Basel III fully phased-in basis was 10.4%, compared with 10.1% last quarter.
“This quarter we were pleased to mark a milestone of 500,000 downloads of our TD MySpend money management app, which helps our customers track their spending and saving,” said Masrani. “We remain focused on going above and beyond for our customers by providing legendary service and convenience while investing for the future to meet their evolving needs.”
