TD Ameritrade Reports Record 2017 Earnings

October 24, 2017

Diluted Earnings per Share of $1.64, up 4% Year-Over-Year

Net Revenues of $3.7B, up 10% Year-Over-Year

Net New Client Assets of $80B, 10% Annualized Growth Rate

OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: AMTD) has released results for its 2017 fiscal year. The Company’s core operating metrics were at record levels, driven by strong organic growth and the acquisition of Scottrade. The Company also introduced a Non-GAAP earnings per share metric to enhance comparisons to prior periods.

The Company’s results for the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2017 include the following:(1)

  • Net new client assets of approximately $80 billion, a growth rate of 10 percent
  • Record average client trades per day of approximately 511,000, up 10 percent year over year
  • Net revenues of $3.7 billion, 60 percent of which were asset-based
  • Client assets of approximately $1.1 trillion, up 45 percent year over year
  • $1.64 in GAAP earnings per diluted share, up 4 percent year over year, on net income of $872 million
  • $1.84 in Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share(2), up 10 percent year over year
  • Pre-tax income of $1.4 billion, or 38 percent of net revenues
  • Interest rate-sensitive assets(3) of $156 billion, up 31 percent year over year

“Fiscal 2017 was an outstanding year, enhanced by our acquisition of Scottrade, which we expect will improve the investing experience for millions of investors. Throughout the year, we delivered industry-leading, double-digit organic growth, made significant progress on our core strategic initiatives, and completed critical steps to enable the seamless integration of Scottrade into our business,” said Tim Hockey, TD Ameritrade president and chief executive officer. “We finished the year strong in trading, averaging a record 511,000 trades per day, despite suppressed market volatility. And, we gathered a record $80 billion in net new client assets, driven by record asset gathering from our institutional channel, efficient and effective marketing efforts, and strong new business trends all around.

“We will carry that momentum with us into fiscal 2018 with a strengthened competitive position and increased scale, thanks to Scottrade, that will further accelerate our asset gathering capabilities,” Hockey continued. “Over the next 12 months we will continue to ramp up our technology efficiency and throughput so we can further enhance the client experience, and accelerate and diversify revenue growth.”

“Overall core results remained strong as we exited the fiscal year. Moving forward, we’ve decided to include Non-GAAP results in our reporting, which will enhance comparability by excluding the significant acquisition-related expenses we expect to incur. Both GAAP and Non-GAAP results were strong for the quarter and year,” said Steve Boyle, executive vice president and chief financial officer. “We have good momentum right now and remain focused on delivering a successful integration, which we expect will drive incremental shareholder value. Our game plan is sound, and we expect to deliver better results than we originally modeled.”

Fourth Quarter 2017 Results
TD Ameritrade also released its results for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2017, which include the following: (1)

  • Net new client assets of approximately $20 billion
  • Average client trades per day of approximately 529,000, up 19 percent year over year
  • Net revenues of $983 million, 64 percent of which were asset-based
  • $0.39 in GAAP earnings per diluted share, up 11 percent year over year, on net income of $211 million
  • $0.49 in Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share(2), up 29 percent year over year
  • Pre-tax income of $338 million, or 34 percent of net revenues

Capital Management
During the 2017 fiscal year, the Company paid $379 million in cash dividends, which included four quarterly dividends of $0.18 per share.

The Company will increase its quarterly cash dividend by $0.03 per share, a 17 percent increase. It has declared a $0.21 per share quarterly cash dividend, payable on Nov. 21, 2017 to all holders of record of common stock as of Nov. 7, 2017.

Fiscal 2018 Outlook
The Company has also released its outlook for the 2018 fiscal year, which reflects expected GAAP earnings of $1.50 to $2.00 per diluted share, or Non-GAAP earnings of $2.10 to $2.50 per diluted share(2) for its 2018 fiscal year.

More information on the fiscal 2018 forecast is available through the Company’s Outlook Statement, located in the “Financials and Reports” section of its corporate website, www.amtd.com.

* Represents the range of the Non-GAAP Diluted EPS included within the October 24, 2017 Outlook Statement.






























 

(1)

  Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) are non-GAAP financial measures as defined by SEC Regulation G. We define non-GAAP net income as net income adjusted to remove the after-tax effect of amortization of acquired intangible assets and acquisition-related expenses. We consider non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS as important measures of our financial performance because they exclude certain items that may not be indicative of our core operating results and business outlook and will allow for a better evaluation of the operating performance of the business and facilitate a meaningful comparison of our results in the current period to those in prior and future periods. Amortization of acquired intangible assets is excluded because management does not believe it is indicative of our underlying business performance. Acquisition-related expenses are excluded as these costs are directly related to our acquisition of Scottrade Financial Services, Inc. and are not representative of the costs of running the Company’s on-going business. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, GAAP net income and diluted EPS.


 

(2)


EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) is considered a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by SEC Regulation G. We consider EBITDA an important measure of our financial performance and of our ability to generate cash flows to service debt, fund capital expenditures and fund other corporate investing and financing activities. EBITDA is used as the denominator in the consolidated leverage ratio calculation for covenant purposes under our senior revolving credit facility. EBITDA eliminates the non-cash effect of tangible asset depreciation and amortization and intangible asset amortization. EBITDA should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, GAAP pre-tax income, net income and cash flows from operating activities.



 

(3)


Liquid assets available for corporate investing and financing activities is considered a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by SEC Regulation G. We consider "liquid assets available for corporate investing and financing activities" to be an important measure of our liquidity. We include the excess capital of our regulated subsidiaries in the calculation of liquid assets available for corporate investing and financing activities, rather than simply including the regulated subsidiaries' cash and cash equivalents, because capital requirements may limit the amount of cash available for dividend from the regulated subsidiaries to the parent company. Excess capital, as defined below, is generally available for dividend from the regulated subsidiaries to the parent company. Liquid assets available for corporate investing and financing activities should be considered as a supplemental measure of liquidity, rather than as a substitute for GAAP cash and cash equivalents.



 


We define liquid assets available for corporate investing and financing activities as the sum of (a) excess corporate cash and cash equivalents and investments, less securities sold under agreements to repurchase and (b) our regulated subsidiaries net capital in excess of minimum operational targets established by management. Excess corporate cash and cash equivalents and investments includes cash and cash equivalents from our investment advisory subsidiaries and excludes (i) amounts being maintained to provide liquidity for operational contingencies, including lending to our broker-dealer and FCM/FDM subsidiaries under intercompany credit agreements, (ii) amounts maintained for corporate working capital and (iii) amounts held as collateral for derivative contracts. Liquid assets available for corporate investing and financing activities is based on more conservative measures of net capital than regulatory requirements because we generally manage to higher levels of net capital at our regulated subsidiaries than the regulatory thresholds require.
