TORONTO, Aug. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - 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
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
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
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.

Capital
Common Equity Tier 1 Capital ratio on a Basel III fully phased-in basis was 10.4%, compared with 10.1% last quarter.

Conclusion
"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."

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.

 

This document was reviewed by the Bank's Audit Committee and was approved by the Bank's Board of Directors, on the Audit Committee's recommendation, prior to its release.

Each capital ratio has its own risk-weighted assets (RWA) measure due to the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions Canada (OSFI) prescribed scalar for inclusion of the Credit Valuation Adjustment (CVA). The scalars for inclusion of CVA for Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1), Tier 1, and Total Capital RWA are 64%, 71%, and 77%, respectively.

Excludes acquired credit-impaired (ACI) loans and debt securities classified as loans. For additional information on ACI loans, refer to the "Credit Portfolio Quality" section of the MD&A and Note 5 of the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements. For additional information on debt securities classified as loans, refer to the "Exposure to Non-Agency Collateralized Mortgage Obligations" discussion and tables in the "Credit Portfolio Quality" section of the MD&A and Note 5 of the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

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 referred to as "adjusted" results to assess each of its businesses and to measure the Bank's overall 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 in Table 3. As explained, adjusted results differ 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.

Adjusted non-interest income excludes the following items of note: second quarter 2016 – $58 million loss due to change in fair value of derivatives hedging the reclassified available-for-sale (AFS) securities portfolio as explained in footnote 6; first quarter 2016 – $46 million gain due to change in fair value of derivatives hedging the reclassified AFS securities portfolio; third quarter 2015 – $21 million gain due to change in fair value of derivatives hedging the reclassified AFS securities portfolio; second quarter 2015 – $17 million gain due to change in fair value of derivatives hedging the reclassified AFS securities portfolio. These amounts were reported in the Corporate segment.

2 

Adjusted non-interest expenses excludes the following items of note: third quarter 2016 – $63 million amortization of intangibles, as explained in footnote 5; second quarter 2016 – $69 million amortization of intangibles; $111 million impairment of goodwill, certain intangibles, other non-financial assets, and other charges, as further explained in footnote 7; first quarter 2016 – $74 million amortization of intangibles; third quarter 2015 – $70 million amortization of intangibles; $39 million recovery of litigation losses, as explained in footnote 9; second quarter 2015 – $73 million amortization of intangibles; $337 million due to the initiatives to reduce costs, as explained in footnote 8; $52 million of litigation charges; first quarter 2015 – $73 million amortization of intangibles. These amounts were reported in the Corporate segment, with the exception of litigation and litigation-related charge(s)/reserve(s) which were reported in the U.S. Retail segment.

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: third quarter 2016 – $16 million amortization of intangibles, as explained in footnote 5; second quarter 2016 – $17 million amortization of intangibles; first quarter 2016 – $16 million amortization of intangibles; third quarter 2015 – $15 million amortization of intangibles; second quarter 2015 – $16 million amortization of intangibles; first quarter 2015 – $14 million amortization of intangibles. These amounts were reported in the Corporate segment.

5  

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.

6  

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.

7  

In the second quarter of 2016, the Bank recorded impairment losses on goodwill, certain intangibles, other non-financial assets and deferred tax assets, as well as other charges relating to the Direct Investing business in Europe that has been experiencing continued losses. These amounts are reported in the Corporate segment.

8  

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.

9 

As a result of an adverse judgment and evaluation of certain other developments and exposures in the U.S. in 2015, the Bank took prudent steps to reassess its litigation provision. Having considered these factors, including related or analogous cases, the Bank determined, in accordance with applicable accounting standards, that an increase of $52 million ($32 million after tax) to the Bank's litigation provision was required in the second quarter of 2015. During the third quarter of 2015, distributions of $39 million ($24 million after tax) were received by the Bank as a result of previous settlements reached on certain matters in the U.S., whereby the Bank was assigned the right to these distributions, if and when made available. The amount in the third quarter of 2015 reflects this recovery of previous settlements.

For explanations of items of note, refer to the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures – Reconciliation of Adjusted to Reported Net Income" table in the "How We Performed" section of this document.

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.

Results of each business segment reflect revenue, expenses, assets, and liabilities generated by the businesses in that segment. Where applicable, the Bank measures and evaluates the performance of each segment based on adjusted results and ROE, 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 ROE, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, refer to the "How We Performed" section of this document.

Effective the first quarter of 2016, the presentation of the U.S. strategic cards portfolio revenues, provision for credit losses (PCL), and expenses in the U.S. Retail segment includes only the Bank's agreed portion of the U.S. strategic cards portfolio, while the Corporate segment includes the retailer program partners' share. Certain comparative amounts have been recast to conform with this revised presentation. There was no impact on the net income of the segments or on the presentation of gross and net results in the Bank's Interim Consolidated Statement of Income.

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's results are reversed in the Corporate segment. The TEB adjustment for the quarter was $79 million, compared with $91 million in the third quarter last year, and $82 million in the prior quarter. The TEB adjustment for the nine months ended July 31, 2016, was $226 million, compared with $322 million in the same period last year.

Quarterly comparison – Q3 2016 vs. Q3 2015
Canadian Retail net income for the quarter was $1,509 million, a decrease of $48 million, or 3%, compared with the third quarter last year. Revenue growth was more than offset by higher insurance claims, a higher effective tax rate, increased non-interest expenses and higher PCL. The annualized ROE for the quarter was 41.9%, compared with 44.6% in the third quarter last year.

Canadian Retail revenue is derived from the Canadian personal and commercial banking, wealth, and insurance businesses. Revenue for the quarter was $5,141 million, an increase of $130 million, or 3%, compared with the third quarter last year. Net interest income increased $39 million, or 2%, reflecting loan and deposit volume growth, partially offset by lower margins. Non-interest income increased $91 million, or 4%, reflecting wealth asset-based fee growth, changes in the fair value of investments supporting claims liabilities and higher fee-based revenue in personal and commercial banking. Margin on average earning assets was 2.79%, a 9 basis points (bps) decrease, primarily reflecting competitive pricing in lending.

Average loan volumes increased $19 billion, or 5%, compared with the third quarter last year, comprised of 4% growth in personal loan volumes and 10% growth in business loan volumes. Average deposit volumes increased $20 billion, or 8%, compared with the third quarter last year, comprised of 7% growth in personal deposit volumes, 8% growth in business deposit volumes and 15% growth in wealth deposit volumes.

Assets under administration (AUA) were $337 billion as at July 31, 2016, an increase of $23 billion, or 7%, and assets under management (AUM) were $265 billion as at July 31, 2016, an increase of $16 billion, or 6%, compared with the third quarter last year, both reflecting new asset growth and increases in market value.

PCL for the quarter was $258 million, an increase of $21 million, or 9%, compared with the third quarter last year. Personal banking PCL was $248 million, an increase of $43 million, or 21%, reflecting higher provisions in the auto lending portfolio in the current quarter. Business banking PCL was $10 million, a decrease of $22 million. Annualized PCL as a percentage of credit volume was 0.28%, or an increase of 1 basis point. Net impaired loans were $732 million, an increase of $26 million, or 4%. Net impaired loans as a percentage of total loans were 0.20%, or flat compared with July 31, 2015.

Insurance claims and related expenses for the quarter were $692 million, an increase of $92 million, or 15%, compared with the third quarter last year. The increase reflects the net impact of the Fort McMurray wildfire as well as other weather-related claims, and changes in the fair value of investments supporting claims liabilities, partially offset by more favourable prior years' claims development.

Non-interest expenses were $2,133 million, an increase of $29 million, or 1%, compared with the third quarter last year. The increase reflected business growth, higher employee-related expenses including revenue-based variable expenses in the wealth business and technology spend, partially offset by productivity savings.

The efficiency ratio for the quarter was 41.5%, compared with 42.0% in the third quarter last year.

Quarterly comparison – Q3 2016 vs. Q2 2016
Canadian Retail net income increased $45 million, or 3%, compared with the prior quarter, reflecting increased revenue, partially offset by higher insurance claims and increased non-interest expenses. The annualized ROE for the quarter was 41.9%, compared with 41.7% in the prior quarter.

Revenue increased $254 million, or 5%, compared with the prior quarter. Net interest income increased $101 million, or 4%, reflecting loan and deposit volume growth, additional days in the quarter, and seasonal factors, partially offset by lower margins. Non-interest income increased $153 million, or 6%, reflecting changes in the fair value of investments supporting claims liabilities, seasonality of insurance premiums, wealth asset-based fee growth, higher fee-based revenue in personal and commercial banking, and additional days in the quarter. Margin on average earning assets was 2.79%, or a 2 bps increase, primarily reflecting higher seasonal revenue, partially offset by lower lending margins.

Average loan volumes increased $5 billion, or 1%, compared with the prior quarter, comprised of 1% growth in personal loan volumes and 2% growth in business loan volumes. Average deposit volumes increased $10 billion, or 4%, comprised of 2% growth in personal deposit volumes, 7% growth in business deposit volumes and 4% growth in wealth deposit volumes.

AUA were $337 billion as at July 31, 2016, an increase of $16 billion, or 5%, and AUM were $265 billion as at July 31, 2016, an increase of $11 billion, or 4%, compared with the prior quarter-end, both reflecting increases in market value and new asset growth.

PCL for the quarter decreased $4 million, or 2%, compared with the prior quarter. Personal banking PCL for the quarter decreased $4 million, or 2%, primarily reflecting lower delinquencies in the current quarter. Business banking PCL was flat. Annualized PCL as a percentage of credit volume was 0.28%, or a 2 bps decrease. Net impaired loans decreased $25 million, or 3%.

Canadian Retail net income for the nine months ended July 31, 2016, was $4,486 million, an increase of $44 million, or 1%, compared with the same period last year. The increase in earnings reflects revenue growth, partially offset by the impact of a higher effective tax rate, higher PCL and increased non-interest expenses. The annualized ROE for the period was 42.0%, compared with 42.9% in the same period last year.

Revenue was $15,059 million, an increase of $371 million, or 3%, compared with the same period last year. Net interest income increased $144 million, or 2%, reflecting loan and deposit volume growth, partially offset by lower margins. Non-interest income increased $227 million, or 3%, reflecting wealth asset-based fee growth, higher fee-based revenue in personal and commercial banking, a change in mix of reinsurance contracts, and higher insurance premiums, partially offset by changes in the fair value of investments supporting claims liabilities.

Certain comparative amounts and ratios have been recast to conform with the revised presentation, which includes only the Bank's agreed portion of revenue, PCL, and expenses for the U.S. strategic cards portfolio and was adopted in the first quarter of 2016. For further details, refer to the "How our Businesses Performed" section of this document.

Before the equity in net income of the Bank's investment in TD Ameritrade.

For explanations of items of note, refer to the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures − Reconciliation of Adjusted to Reported Net Income" table in the "How We Performed" section of this document.

The margin on average earning assets excludes the impact related to the TD Ameritrade insured deposit accounts (IDA) and the impact of intercompany deposits and cash collateral. In addition, the value of tax-exempt interest income is adjusted to its equivalent before-tax value.

 

Quarterly comparison – Q3 2016 vs. Q3 2015
U.S. Retail net income for the quarter was $788 million (US$609 million), which included net income of $663 million (US$512 million) from the U.S. Retail Bank and $125 million (US$97 million) from the Bank's investment in TD Ameritrade. U.S. Retail reported earnings increased US$66 million, or 12%, compared with the third quarter last year, while adjusted earnings were up US$85 million, or 16%. In addition to U.S. dollar earnings growth, U.S. Retail Canadian dollar earnings benefited from the strength of the U.S. dollar with reported earnings up $114 million, or 17%, and adjusted earnings up $138 million, or 21%. The reported and adjusted annualized ROE for the quarter was 9.5%, compared with 8.6% and 8.3%, respectively, in the third quarter last year.

U.S. Retail Bank reported net income for the quarter increased US$43 million, or 9%, compared with the third quarter last year, due to higher loan and deposit volumes, positive operating leverage, and good credit quality, partially offset by recovery of litigation losses in the same period last year. U.S. Retail Bank adjusted net income increased US$62 million, or 14%. The contribution from TD Ameritrade of US$97 million was up US$23 million, or 31%, reflecting asset growth, higher trading volumes and a favourable tax liability adjustment, partially offset by higher operating expenses.

U.S. Retail Bank revenue is derived from retail and commercial banking operations, wealth management services, and investments. Revenue for the quarter was US$1,810 million, an increase of US$123 million, or 7%, compared with the third quarter last year. Net interest income increased US$130 million, or 11%, reflecting loan and deposit growth, higher margins, and the benefit of an acquisition in the strategic cards portfolio. Margin on average earning assets was 3.14%, a 9 bps increase, due to the December 2015 Fed rate increase (the "Rate Increase"), positive hedging impact, and favourable balance sheet mix, partially offset by lower loan margins. Non‑interest income decreased US$7 million, or 2%, reflecting fee income growth in personal banking and wealth management, and the benefit of an acquisition in the strategic cards portfolio, offset by unfavourable hedging impact and lower overdraft fees attributable to a change in time order posting of customer transactions.

Excluding an acquisition in the strategic cards portfolio, average loan volumes increased US$13 billion, or 11%, compared with the third quarter last year due to growth in business and personal loans of 17% and 4%, respectively. Average deposit volumes increased US$19 billion, or 9%, reflecting 7% growth in business deposit volumes, 9% growth in personal deposit volumes and 11% increase in sweep deposit volume from TD Ameritrade.

AUA were US$13 billion as at July 31, 2016, an increase of 11%, compared with the third quarter last year, primarily due to increases in private banking balances. AUM were US$71 billion as at July 31, 2016, a decrease of 4%, primarily due to declines in international equity markets.       

PCL for the quarter was US$130 million, an increase of US$8 million, or 7%, compared with the third quarter last year. Personal banking PCL was US$80 million, an increase of US$4 million, or 4%, primarily related to auto lending and credit card loans. Business banking PCL was US$49 million, a US$4 million increase, or 9%, primarily due to portfolio growth. PCL associated with debt securities classified as loans was US$1 million, flat compared with the third quarter last year. Net impaired loans, excluding ACI loans and debt securities classified as loans, were US$1.5 billion, an increase of US$101 million, or 7%. The increase was related to certain legacy performing home equity loans that were classified as impaired due to concerns about the borrowers' ability to continue to pay under modified terms. As the borrowers demonstrate an ability to perform under the modified terms, the loans are returned to performing status. Net impaired loans, excluding ACI loans and debt securities classified as loans, as a percentage of total loans were 1.1% as at July 31, 2016. Net impaired debt securities classified as loans were US$672 million, a decrease of US$140 million, or 17%.

Non-interest expenses for the quarter were US$1,058 million. Reported non-interest expenses increased US$64 million, or 6%, compared with the third quarter last year, reflecting higher employee costs, business initiatives, and recovery of litigation losses in the same period last year, partially offset by productivity savings. Adjusted non-interest expenses increased US$34 million, or 3%.

The reported and adjusted efficiency ratios for the quarter were 58.5%, compared with 58.9% and 60.8%, respectively, in the third quarter last year.

U.S. Retail Bank net income for the quarter increased US$53 million, or 12%, compared with the prior quarter, due to higher loan volumes, fee income growth, and two additional days in the quarter. The contribution from TD Ameritrade increased US$19 million, or 24%, primarily due to higher asset-based revenue, a favourable tax liability adjustment and lower operating expenses, partially offset by decreased transaction-based revenue.

Revenue for the quarter increased US$85 million, or 5%, compared with the prior quarter. Net interest income increased US$46 million, or 4%, reflecting higher loan volumes and two additional days in the quarter. Margin on average earning assets was 3.14%, a 3 bps increase, due to positive hedging impact and higher deposit margins. Non‑interest income increased US$39 million, or 9%, primarily reflecting organic and seasonal growth in personal banking fee revenue.

 Average loan volumes increased US$4 billion, or 3%, compared with the prior quarter, due to growth in the commercial and auto lending portfolios. Average deposit volumes were flat compared with the prior quarter.

PCL associated with debt securities classified as loans was US$1 million, flat compared with the prior quarter. Net impaired loans, excluding ACI loans and debt securities classified as loans, were US$1.5 billion, a decrease of US$155 million, or 10%. The decrease was mainly related to certain legacy home equity loans returning to performing status after demonstrating a sustained ability to pay under modified terms.

Net impaired debt securities classified as loans decreased US$59 million, or 8%.

The efficiency ratio for the quarter was 58.5%, compared with 61.8% in the prior quarter.

U.S. Retail Bank adjusted net income increased US$101 million, or 8%.

Revenue was US$5,282 million, an increase of US$301 million, or 6%, compared with the same period last year. Net interest income increased US$285 million, or 8%, reflecting loan and deposit volume growth, and the benefit of an acquisition in the strategic cards portfolio, partially offset by lower margins. Margin on average earning assets was 3.12%, a 1 basis point decrease, due to lower loan margins as a result of the competitive environment, partially offset by the Rate Increase and positive hedging impact. Non‑interest income increased US$16 million, or 1%, primarily reflecting customer account growth, higher transaction volumes, and the benefit of an acquisition in the strategic cards portfolio, offset by unfavourable hedging impact.

Excluding an acquisition in the strategic cards portfolio, average loan volumes increased US$13 billion, or 11%, compared with the same period last year due to growth in business loans and personal loans of 18% and 4%, respectively.

Quarterly comparison – Q3 2016 vs. Q3 2015
Corporate segment's reported net loss for the quarter was $241 million, compared with a reported net loss of $204 million in the third quarter last year. Reported net loss included gains related to the fair value of derivatives hedging the reclassified available-for-sale securities portfolio in the third quarter last year. Adjusted net loss was $183 million, compared with an adjusted net loss of $161 million in the third quarter last year. Adjusted net loss increased primarily due to higher net corporate expenses, partially offset by higher contribution from Other Items. Net corporate expenses increased due to ongoing investments in enterprise and regulatory projects. Other items included higher revenue from treasury and balance sheet management activities and higher provisions for incurred but not identified credit losses due to credit deterioration in exposures within the oil and gas industry, and volume growth within the Canadian Retail and Wholesale Banking loan portfolios.

Quarterly comparison – Q3 2016 vs. Q2 2016
Corporate segment's reported net loss for the quarter was $241 million, compared with a reported net loss of $350 million in the prior quarter. Reported net loss in the second quarter included impairment of goodwill, non-financial assets, and other charges, and losses related to the fair value of derivatives hedging the reclassified available-for-sale securities portfolio. Adjusted net loss was $183 million, compared with an adjusted net loss of $120 million in the prior quarter. Adjusted net loss increased primarily due to higher net corporate expenses and lower contribution from Other Items. Lower contribution from Other Items included higher tax provisions this quarter and lower revenue from treasury and balance sheet management activities, partially offset by lower provisions for incurred but not identified credit losses.

Year-to-date comparison – Q3 2016 vs. Q3 2015
Corporate segment's reported net loss for the nine months ended July 31, 2016, was $793 million, compared with a reported net loss of $827 million in the same period last year. Reported net loss included impairment of goodwill, non-financial assets, and other charges, and losses related to the fair value of derivatives hedging the reclassified available-for-sale securities portfolio in the current period, and restructuring charges, partially offset by gains related to the fair value of derivatives hedging the reclassified available-for-sale securities portfolio in the same period last year. Adjusted net loss for the nine months ended July 31, 2016, was $481 million, compared with an adjusted net loss of $443 million in the same period last year. The increase in adjusted net loss was due to higher net corporate expenses, partially offset by higher contribution from Other Items. Net corporate expenses increased due to ongoing investments in enterprise and regulatory projects. Higher contribution from Other Items was primarily due to higher revenue from treasury and balance sheet management activities and lower tax provisions in the current period, partially offset by higher provisions for incurred but not identified credit losses due to an increase in portfolio risk, credit deterioration in exposures impacted by low oil and gas prices, and volume growth within the Canadian Retail and Wholesale Banking loan portfolios.
