TD Bank Group Reports First Quarter 2016 Results

This quarterly earnings news release should be read in conjunction with the Bank's unaudited First Quarter 2016 Report to Shareholders for the three months ended January 31, 2016, prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), which is available on our website at http://www.td.com/investor/. This analysis is dated February 24, 2016. Unless otherwise indicated, all amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars, and have been primarily derived from the Bank's Annual or Interim Consolidated Financial Statements prepared in accordance with IFRS. Certain comparative amounts have been reclassified to conform to the presentation adopted in the current period. Additional information relating to the Bank is available on the Bank's website at http://www.td.com, as well as on SEDAR at http://www.sedar.com and on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) website at http://www.sec.gov (EDGAR filers section).

Reported results conform to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), in accordance with IFRS. Adjusted measures are non-GAAP measures. Refer to the "How the Bank Reports" section of the First Quarter 2016 Management's Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) for an explanation of reported and adjusted results.

FIRST QUARTER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS, compared with the first quarter a year ago:

  • Reported diluted earnings per share were $1.17, compared with $1.09.
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $1.18, compared with $1.12.
  • Reported net income was $2,223 million, compared with $2,060 million.
  • Adjusted net income was $2,247 million, compared with $2,123 million.

FIRST QUARTER ADJUSTMENTS (ITEMS OF NOTE)

The first quarter reported earnings figures included the following items of note:

  • Amortization of intangibles of $65 million after tax (3 cents per share), compared with $63 million after tax (3 cents per share) in the first quarter a year ago.
  • A gain of $41 million after tax (2 cents per share) due to the change in fair value of derivatives hedging the reclassified available-for-sale securities portfolio.

TORONTO, Feb. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - 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.

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

Conclusion
"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."

The foregoing contains forward-looking statements. Please refer to the "Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements" on page 2.

Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
From time to time, the Bank (as defined in this document) makes written and/or oral forward-looking statements, including in this document, in other filings with Canadian regulators or the United States (U.S.) Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and in other communications. In addition, representatives of the Bank may make forward-looking statements orally to analysts, investors, the media and others. All such statements are made pursuant to the "safe harbour" provisions of, and are intended to be forward-looking statements under, applicable Canadian and U.S. securities legislation, including the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements made in this document, the Management's Discussion and Analysis ("2015 MD&A") in the Bank's 2015 Annual Report under the heading "Economic Summary and Outlook", for each business segment under headings "Business Outlook and Focus for 2016", and in other statements regarding the Bank's objectives and priorities for 2016 and beyond and strategies to achieve them, the regulatory environment in which the Bank operates, and the Bank's anticipated financial performance. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as "will", "should", "believe", "expect", "anticipate", "intend", "estimate", "plan", "may", and "could".

By their very nature, these forward-looking statements require the Bank to make assumptions and are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties, general and specific. Especially in light of the uncertainty related to the physical, financial, economic, political, and regulatory environments, such risks and uncertainties - many of which are beyond the Bank's control and the effects of which can be difficult to predict - may cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in the forward-looking statements. Risk factors that could cause, individually or in the aggregate, such differences include: credit, market (including equity, commodity, foreign exchange, and interest rate), liquidity, operational (including technology and infrastructure), reputational, insurance, strategic, regulatory, legal, environmental, capital adequacy, and other risks. Examples of such risk factors include the general business and economic conditions in the regions in which the Bank operates; the ability of the Bank to execute on key priorities, including the successful completion of acquisitions, business retention, and strategic plans and to attract, develop and retain key executives; disruptions in or attacks (including cyber-attacks) on the Bank's information technology, internet, network access or other voice or data communications systems or services; the evolution of various types of fraud or other criminal behaviour to which the Bank is exposed; the failure of third parties to comply with their obligations to the Bank or its affiliates, including relating to the care and control of information; the impact of new and changes to, or application of, current laws and regulations, including without limitation tax laws, risk-based capital guidelines and liquidity regulatory guidance; the overall difficult litigation environment, including in the U.S.; increased competition, including through internet and mobile banking and non-traditional competitors; changes to the Bank's credit ratings; changes in currency and interest rates (including the possibility of negative interest rates); increased funding costs and market volatility due to market illiquidity and competition for funding; critical accounting estimates and changes to accounting standards, policies, and methods used by the Bank; existing and potential international debt crises; and the occurrence of natural and unnatural catastrophic events and claims resulting from such events. The Bank cautions that the preceding list is not exhaustive of all possible risk factors and other factors could also adversely affect the Bank's results. For more detailed information, please refer to the "Risk Factors and Management" section of the 2015 MD&A, as may be updated in subsequently filed quarterly reports to shareholders and news releases (as applicable) related to any transactions or events discussed under the heading "Significant Events" in the relevant MD&A, which applicable releases may be found on www.td.com. All such factors should be considered carefully, as well as other uncertainties and potential events, and the inherent uncertainty of forward-looking statements, when making decisions with respect to the Bank and the Bank cautions readers not to place undue reliance on the Bank's forward-looking statements.

Material economic assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements contained in this document are set out in the 2015 MD&A under the headings "Economic Summary and Outlook", and for each business segment, "Business Outlook and Focus for 2016", each as may be updated in subsequently filed quarterly reports to shareholders.

Any forward-looking statements contained in this document represent the views of management only as of the date hereof and are presented for the purpose of assisting the Bank's shareholders and analysts in understanding the Bank's financial position, objectives and priorities and anticipated financial performance as at and for the periods ended on the dates presented, and may not be appropriate for other purposes. The Bank does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time by or on its behalf, except as required under applicable securities legislation.

HOW WE PERFORMED

How the Bank Reports
The Bank prepares its Interim Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS, the current GAAP, and refers to results prepared in accordance with IFRS as "reported" results. The Bank also utilizes non-GAAP financial measures to arrive at "adjusted" results to assess each of its businesses and to measure the overall Bank performance. To arrive at adjusted results, the Bank removes "items of note", net of income taxes, from reported results. The items of note relate to items which management does not believe are indicative of underlying business performance. The Bank believes that adjusted results provide the reader with a better understanding of how management views the Bank's performance. The items of note are disclosed on Table 3. As explained, adjusted results are different from reported results determined in accordance with IFRS. Adjusted results, items of note, and related terms used in this document are not defined terms under IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar terms used by other issuers.

million gain due to change in fair value of derivatives hedging the reclassified AFS securities portfolio; $73 million difference of the transaction price over the fair value of the Nordstrom assets acquired, as explained in footnote 8.
2  Adjusted non-interest expenses excludes the following items of note: first quarter 2016 - $74 million amortization of intangibles, as explained in footnote 5; fourth quarter 2015 - $73 million amortization of intangibles; $349 million due to the initiatives to reduce
costs, as explained in footnote 7; $9 million due to integration costs related to the Nordstrom transaction, as explained in footnote 8; first quarter 2015 - $73 million amortization of intangibles.
For a reconciliation between reported and adjusted provision for income taxes, refer to the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Reconciliation of Reported to Adjusted Provision for Income Taxes" table in the "Income Taxes" section of the MD&A.
4  Adjusted equity in net income of an investment in TD Ameritrade excludes the following items of note: first quarter 2016 - $16 million amortization of intangibles, as explained in footnote 5; fourth quarter 2015 - $16 million amortization of intangibles; first quarter 2015
- $14 million amortization of intangibles.
Amortization of intangibles relate to intangibles acquired as a result of asset acquisitions and business combinations. Although the amortization of software and asset servicing rights are recorded in amortization of intangibles, they are not included for purposes of
the items of note.
The Bank changed its trading strategy with respect to certain trading debt securities and reclassified these securities from trading to the AFS category effective August 1, 2008. These debt securities are economically hedged, primarily with credit default swap
and interest rate swap contracts which are recorded on a fair value basis with changes in fair value recorded in the period's earnings. Management believes that this asymmetry in the accounting treatment between derivatives and the reclassified debt securities results
in volatility in earnings from period to period that is not indicative of the economics of the underlying business performance in Wholesale Banking. The Bank may from time to time replace securities within the portfolio to best utilize the initial, matched fixed
term funding. As a result, the derivatives are accounted for on an accrual basis in Wholesale Banking and the gains and losses related to the derivatives in excess of the accrued amounts are reported in the Corporate segment. Adjusted results of the Bank
exclude the gains and losses of the derivatives in excess of the accrued amount.
During 2015, the Bank commenced its restructuring review and recorded restructuring charges of $337 million ($228 million after tax) and $349 million ($243 million after tax) on a net basis, in the second quarter and fourth quarter of 2015, respectively. The restructuring
initiatives were intended to reduce costs and manage expenses in a sustainable manner and to achieve greater operational efficiencies. These measures included process redesign and business restructuring, retail branch and real estate optimization, and organizational
review. The restructuring charges have been recorded as an adjustment to net income within the Corporate segment.
On October 1, 2015, the Bank acquired substantially all of Nordstrom's existing U.S. Visa and private label consumer credit card portfolio and became the primary issuer of Nordstrom credit cards in the U.S. The transaction was treated as an asset acquisition and the difference
on the date of acquisition of the transaction price over the fair value of assets acquired has been recorded in Non-interest income. In addition, the Bank incurred set-up, conversion and other one-time costs related to integration of the acquired cards and related program agreement.
These amounts are included as an item of note in the U.S. Retail segment.

The tax effect for each item of note is calculated using the effective statutory income tax rate of the applicable legal entity.
Adjusted effective income tax rate is the adjusted provision for income taxes before other taxes as a percentage of adjusted net income before taxes.
   

Return on Common Equity
The Bank's methodology for allocating capital to its business segments is aligned with the common equity capital requirements under Basel III. The capital allocated to the business segments is based on 9% CET1 Capital.

Adjusted return on common equity (ROE) is adjusted net income available to common shareholders as a percentage of average common equity.

Adjusted ROE is a non-GAAP financial measure as it is not a defined term under IFRS. Readers are cautioned that earnings and other measures adjusted to a basis other than IFRS do not have standardized meanings under IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar terms used by other issuers.

HOW OUR BUSINESSES PERFORMED
For management reporting purposes, the Bank reports its results under three key business segments: Canadian Retail, which includes the results of the Canadian personal and commercial banking, wealth, and insurance businesses; U.S. Retail, which includes the results of the U.S. retail and commercial banking operations, wealth management services, and the Bank's investment in TD Ameritrade; and Wholesale Banking. The Bank's other activities are grouped into the Corporate segment.

Commencing with the first quarter of 2016, the Bank reported its segment results with revised presentation for the U.S. strategic cards portfolio1. There was no impact on the net income of the segments or on the presentation of the gross and net results in the consolidated statement of income of the Bank. U.S. Retail revenues, provision for credit losses (PCL), and expenses now include only the Bank's agreed portion of the U.S. strategic cards portfolio. Previously, the gross amounts of the U.S. strategic cards portfolio were included. The retailer program partners' share of the U.S. strategic cards portfolio are now reported as part of revenues, PCL, and expenses in the Corporate segment.

Results of each business segment reflect revenue, expenses, assets, and liabilities generated by the businesses in that segment. The Bank measures and evaluates the performance of each segment based on adjusted results, where applicable, and for those segments the Bank indicates that the measure is adjusted. For further details, refer to the "How the Bank Reports" section of this document, the "Business Focus" section in the 2015 MD&A, and Note 30 of the Bank's Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended October 31, 2015. For information concerning the Bank's measure of adjusted return on average common equity, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, refer to the "How We Performed" section of this document.

Net interest income within Wholesale Banking is calculated on a taxable equivalent basis (TEB), which means that the value of non-taxable or tax-exempt income, including dividends, is adjusted to its equivalent before-tax value. Using TEB allows the Bank to measure income from all securities and loans consistently and makes for a more meaningful comparison of net interest income with similar institutions. The TEB increase to net interest income and provision for income taxes reflected in Wholesale Banking results are reversed in the Corporate segment. The TEB adjustment for the quarter was $65 million, compared with $140 million in the first quarter last year, and $95 million in the prior quarter.

Quarterly comparison - Q1 2016 vs. Q1 2015
Canadian Retail net income for the quarter was $1,513 million, an increase of $64 million, or 4%, compared with the first quarter last year. The increase in earnings reflects loan and deposit volume growth, higher fee-based revenue, and wealth asset growth, partially offset by higher PCL and the impact of a higher effective tax rate. The annualized ROE for the quarter was 42.6%, compared with 41.9% in the first quarter last year.

Canadian Retail revenue is derived from the Canadian personal and commercial banking, wealth, and insurance businesses. Revenue for the quarter was $5,031 million, an increase of $132 million, or 3%, compared with the first quarter last year. Net interest income increased $56 million, or 2%, compared with the first quarter last year, reflecting loan and deposit volume growth and adjustments made to the recognition of commissions paid to auto dealers, partially offset by lower margins. Non-interest income increased $76 million, or 3%, primarily reflecting higher fee-based revenue in personal and commercial banking, wealth asset growth, a change in mix of reinsurance contracts, and higher insurance premiums, partially offset by the change in fair value of investments supporting claims liabilities.

Insurance claims and related expenses for the quarter were $655 million, a decrease of $44 million, or 6%, compared with the first quarter last year primarily reflecting the change in the fair value of investments supporting claims liabilities, less severe weather conditions, and favourable prior years' claims development, partially offset by increases related to a change in mix of reinsurance contracts.

Non-interest expenses were $2,079 million, a decrease of $6 million compared with the first quarter last year. The decrease primarily reflects productivity savings, partially offset by higher employee-related expenses including revenue-based variable expenses in the wealth business and business growth.

Quarterly comparison - Q1 2016 vs. Q4 2015
Canadian Retail net income for the quarter increased $17 million, or 1%, compared with the prior quarter.

Quarterly comparison - Q1 2016 vs. Q1 2015
U.S. Retail net income for the quarter was $751 million (US$552 million) which included net income of $642 million (US$470 million) from the U.S. Retail Bank and $109 million (US$82 million) from the Bank's investment in TD Ameritrade. U.S. Retail earnings were up US$16 million, or 3%, compared with the first quarter last year, while Canadian dollar earnings benefited from the strengthening of the U.S. dollar with earnings up $126 million, or 20%, to $751 million. The annualized ROE for the quarter was 8.7%, compared to 8.5% for the first quarter last year.

U.S. Retail Bank net income for the quarter increased US$13 million, or 3%, compared with the first quarter last year due to revenue growth and expense management, partially offset by higher PCL and lower margins. The contribution from TD Ameritrade of US$82 million was up US$3 million, or 4% compared with the first quarter last year, primarily reflecting higher asset-based revenue and reduced operating expenses, partially offset by lower transaction-based revenue.

U.S. Retail Bank revenue is derived from retail and commercial banking operations, wealth management services, and investments. Revenue for the quarter was US$1,747 million, an increase of US$83 million, or 5%, compared with the first quarter last year, primarily due to loan and deposit growth, and the benefit of the acquisition in the strategic cards portfolio, partially offset by lower margins. Other non-interest income increased primarily due to customer account growth and higher transaction volumes. Margin on average earning assets was 3.11%, a 9 bps decrease compared with the first quarter last year, due primarily to the low interest rate and competitive environment. Excluding the acquisition in the strategic cards portfolio, average loan volumes increased US$15 billion, or 13%, compared with the first quarter last year due to growth in business loans and personal loans of 20% and 5%, respectively. Average deposit volumes increased US$18 billion, or 9%, compared with the first quarter last year, reflecting 9% growth in both personal and business deposit volumes, and a 9% increase in sweep deposit volume from TD Ameritrade.

AUA were US$12 billion as at January 31, 2016, an increase of US$0.9 billion, or 8%, compared with the first quarter last year, primarily due to a 14% increase in private banking balances. AUM were US$71 billion as at January 31, 2016, an increase of US$10 billion, or 18%, compared with the first quarter last year. The increase reflects net inflows from institutional clients, offset by the decline in global equity markets in the first quarter of 2016.

PCL for the quarter was US$160 million, an increase of US$66 million, or 70%, compared with the first quarter last year, primarily due to higher provisions for commercial, auto lending, and credit card loans. Personal banking PCL was US$119 million, an increase of US$26 million, or 28%, compared with the first quarter last year, primarily due to volume growth and a reserve release in the first quarter last year. Business banking PCL was US$40 million, a US$39 million increase as compared to the first quarter last year primarily due to increased allowance from commercial loan volume growth. Net impaired loans, excluding ACI loans and debt securities classified as loans, were US$1.7 billion, an increase of US$436 million, or 35%, compared with the first quarter last year reflecting the inclusion of certain home equity loans that are paying as agreed, however have been reported as impaired because borrowers may not qualify under current underwriting guidelines. Net impaired loans, excluding ACI loans and debt securities classified as loans, as a percentage of total loans were 1.3% as at January 31, 2016, an increase of 20 bps compared with the first quarter last year. Net impaired debt securities classified as loans were US$765 million, a decrease of US$117 million, or 13%, compared with the first quarter last year.

Non-interest expenses for the quarter were US$1,022 million, an increase of US$12 million, or 1%, compared with the first quarter last year, primarily due to an increase in business investment, volume growth, and higher benefit resulting from elective early lump sum pension payouts in the prior year, largely offset by productivity savings.

The efficiency ratio for the quarter was 58.6%, compared with 60.7% in the first quarter last year.

Quarterly comparison - Q1 2016 vs. Q4 2015
U.S. Retail Bank net income for the quarter on a reported basis increased US$102 million, or 28%, compared with the prior quarter. U.S. Retail Bank adjusted net income increased US$63 million, or 15%, primarily due to revenue growth and disciplined expense management, partially offset by higher PCL. The contribution from TD Ameritrade decreased US$2 million, or 2%, compared with the prior quarter, primarily due to lower transaction-based revenue, partially offset by increased asset-based revenue. The reported annualized ROE for the quarter was 8.7%, compared to 7.1% in the prior quarter. The adjusted annualized ROE for the quarter was 8.7%, compared to 7.8% in the prior quarter.

Reported revenue for the quarter increased US$114 million, or 7%. Adjusted revenue for the quarter increased US$58 million, or 3%, primarily due to loan and deposit growth, higher margins, and a full quarter benefit of the acquisition in the strategic cards portfolio. Margin on average earning assets was 3.11%, a 3 bps increase reflecting mainly higher deposit margins and positive balance sheet mix. Overall, absent interest rate changes, we expect margins for U.S. Retail to be relatively stable in 2016. Excluding the acquisition in the strategic cards portfolio, average loan volumes increased US$5 billion, or 4%, compared with the prior quarter due to 7% growth in business loans. Personal loan growth was flat compared with the prior quarter. Average deposit volumes increased US$5 billion, or 2%, compared with the prior quarter reflecting 3% growth in business deposit volume, 2% growth in personal deposit volume and 2% growth in sweep deposit volume from TD Ameritrade.

AUA were US$12 billion as at January 31, 2016, an increase of US$0.1 billion, or 1%, compared with the prior quarter, primarily due to an increase in private banking balances, largely offset by a decline in investment management assets due to market volatility. AUM were US$71 billion as at January 31, 2016, a decrease of US$6 billion, or 7%, compared with the prior quarter, reflecting mainly the decline in global equity markets in the first quarter of 2016.

PCL for the quarter increased US$27 million, or 20%, compared with the prior quarter. Personal banking PCL was US$119 million, flat compared with the prior quarter. Business banking PCL was US$40 million, an increase of US$4 million, compared with the prior quarter, primarily due to increased allowance from commercial loan volume growth, partially offset by the South Carolina flooding provision in the prior quarter. PCL for debt securities classified as loans was US$1 million, an increase of US$23 million, primarily due to recoveries received in the prior quarter. Net impaired loans, excluding ACI loans and debt securities classified as loans, were US$1.7 billion, an increase of US$229 million, or 16% compared with the prior quarter, primarily reflecting inclusion of certain home equity loans that are paying as agreed, however have been reported as impaired because borrowers may not qualify under current underwriting guidelines. Net impaired loans, excluding ACI loans and debt securities classified as loans, as a percentage of total loans increased 15 bps compared to the prior quarter. Net impaired debt securities classified as loans decreased US$32 million, or 4%, compared with the prior quarter.

Reported non-interest expenses for the quarter decreased US$74 million, or 7%, compared with the prior quarter. Adjusted non-interest expenses for the quarter decreased US$67 million, or 6%, compared with the prior quarter, primarily due to lower provisions and productivity savings.

The reported efficiency ratio for the quarter was 58.6%, compared with 67.1% in the prior quarter, while the adjusted efficiency ratio was 58.6%, compared with 64.5% in the prior quarter.

Quarterly comparison - Q1 2016 vs. Q1 2015
Wholesale Banking net income for the quarter was $161 million, a decrease of $31 million, or 16%, compared with the first quarter last year due to lower revenue, partially offset by lower non-interest expenses and a lower effective tax rate. The annualized ROE for the quarter was 10.6%, compared with 13% in the first quarter last year.

Wholesale Banking revenue is derived primarily from capital markets services and corporate lending. The capital markets businesses generate revenue from advisory, underwriting, trading, facilitation, and trade execution services. Revenue for the quarter was $664 million, a decrease of $47 million, or 7%, compared with the first quarter last year. The decrease in revenue was primarily due to lower equity trading and security gains, partially offset by higher fee-based revenue and fixed income trading. The decrease in equity trading reflects challenging markets and lower client volumes. Fee-based revenue increased on improved mergers and acquisitions (M&A) client activity and higher corporate lending and debt underwriting fees.

PCL for the quarter was $12 million and consisted primarily of the accrual cost of credit protection and a specific provision in the corporate lending portfolio. PCL in the first quarter last year was $2 million and consisted primarily of the accrual cost of credit protection.

Non-interest expenses for the quarter were $429 million, a decrease of $4 million, or 1%, compared with the first quarter last year. The decrease was primarily due to lower variable compensation and lower operating expenses, partially offset by the impact of foreign exchange translation.

Quarterly comparison - Q1 2016 vs. Q4 2015
Wholesale Banking net income for the quarter decreased $35 million, or 18%, compared with the prior quarter primarily due to higher non-interest expenses and lower revenue. The annualized ROE for the quarter was 10.6%, compared with 13% in the prior quarter.
