THIRD QUARTER ADJUSTMENTS (ITEMS OF NOTE)
The third quarter reported earnings figures included the following items of note:
TORONTO, August 26, 2021 – TD Bank Group (“TD” or the “Bank”) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended July 31, 2021. Reported earnings were $3.5 billion, up 58% compared with the third quarter last year, and adjusted earnings were $3.6 billion, up 56%.
“TD’s strong performance in the third quarter was supported by solid revenue growth in our Canadian and U.S. Retail businesses as economic activity and employment levels continued to improve on both sides of the border,” said Bharat Masrani, Group President and CEO, TD Bank Group. “TD’s strategy – anchored in our proven business model – enabled us once again to deliver for our shareholders, meet the needs of our customers and clients and contribute to the economic recovery, while continuing to invest in our people, technology, and capabilities.”
“While businesses and consumers are resuming some of their normal activities and more people are getting vaccinated, recent developments and new variants remind us that the global pandemic is not yet over,” added Masrani. “TD will continue to adapt in this fluid environment, adjust in real-time, and prioritize the well-being of our people and all those we serve.”
Canadian Retail reported net income was $2,125 million, an increase of 68% compared with the third quarter last year. Revenue increased 9%, supported by continued momentum in mortgage originations and deposits, strong commercial loan growth and mutual fund sales, as well as record card sales. Reported expenses increased 8%, reflecting business growth spend including volume-driven and employee-related expenses and investments in technology and marketing. Provisions for credit losses (PCL) decreased by $851 million from the prior year, reflecting lower impaired PCL and a recovery in performing PCL.
Canadian Retail continued to innovate to serve customers where and when they want. This includes a new strategic alliance with Canada Post that will see the Personal Bank provide Canadians – particularly those in rural, remote and Indigenous communities – with expanded access to financial services, and the launch of new TD Insurance tools such as mobile severe weather and safety alerts and a new digital virtual assistant. In the Commercial Bank, the acquisition of Wells Fargo’s Canadian Direct Equipment Finance business closed, delivering scaled expertise in equipment leasing and finance.
U.S. Retail net income was $1,295 million (US$1,052 million), an increase of 92% (115% in U.S. dollars) compared with the third quarter last year. The Bank’s investment in The Charles Schwab Corporation (Schwab) contributed $197 million (US$161 million) in earnings, compared with the contribution of $317 million (US$230 million) from TD Ameritrade a year ago.
The U.S. Retail Bank, which excludes the Bank’s investment in Schwab, reported record net income of $1,098 million (US$891 million), an increase of 208% (243% in U.S. dollars) from the third quarter last year. In U.S. dollars, revenue increased 5% reflecting higher non-interest income, partially offset by lower deposit margins. PCL decreased by US$729 million ($993 million) reflecting lower impaired and performing PCL. Expenses increased 2% in U.S. dollars, reflecting higher investment in the business and employee-related expenses, partially offset by productivity savings. In Canadian dollars, revenue and expenses declined 6% and 8%, respectively, primarily as a result of appreciation in the Canadian dollar since the third quarter last year.
The U.S. Retail Bank continued to support customers by expanding the tools and advice it provides, generating strong results from increased customer activity and higher personal and business deposit volumes. This quarter, TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank® (TD AMCB) introduced TD Essential Banking, a low-cost, no-overdraft-fee deposit account, and announced overdraft policy changes as part of its ongoing efforts to meet evolving customer needs and provide underserved communities with affordable access to mainstream financial services and products. TD AMCB also announced the establishment of a US$100 million equity fund in support of minority-owned small businesses, further demonstrating its commitment to provide opportunity in underserved communities and help combat racial inequities. The U.S. Retail Bank continued to invest in enhancing the customer experience, including the ability to book in-store appointments online for retail, small business and wealth services and simplifying how debit or credit cards are added to digital wallets.
