TD Ameritrade Gathers a Record $16 Billion in Net New Client Assets

TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (NYSE: AMTD) has released results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The Company gathered record net new client assets of $16 billion – a 13 percent annualized growth rate – up more than 50 percent from the same quarter a year ago.

The Company’s results for the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2012 include the following:(1)

  • Net income of $147 million, or $0.27 per diluted share
  • Record net new client assets of approximately $16 billion, a record annualized growth rate of 13 percent
  • Average client trades per day of approximately 334,000, an activity rate of 5.8 percent(2)
  • Net revenues of $651 million, 58 percent of which were asset-based
  • Record market fee-based revenue of $55 million, up 28 percent year-over-year
  • Pre-tax income of $237 million, or 36 percent of net revenues
  • EBITDA of $286 million, or 44 percent of net revenues(3)
  • Record interest rate sensitive assets(4) of $90 billion, up 14 percent year-over-year
  • Client assets of approximately $481 billion

“Record net new client assets of $16 billion and earnings per share of 27 cents is a significant achievement in this environment, and a strong start to our fiscal year,” said Fred Tomczyk, president and chief executive officer. “In the face of continued investor uncertainty, we maintained our strong organic growth momentum and had record sales of guidance and advice solutions, all while keeping our expenses in check.”

“TD Ameritrade continues to benefit from strong organic growth and disciplined management of our balance sheet,” said Bill Gerber, executive vice president and chief financial officer. “Our record organic growth this quarter helped grow interest rate sensitive assets to a record $90 billion, up 14 percent from last year, leaving us even better-positioned for rising interest rates. In addition, market fee-based revenue is up 28 percent year-over-year, driven by our effective referral and sales processes. We remain focused on maintaining our momentum as we move forward.”

Capital Deployment
The Company has declared a $0.09 per share quarterly cash dividend, payable on Feb. 15, 2013 to all holders of record of common stock as of Feb. 1, 2013.

“In addition to the quarterly dividend, TD Ameritrade paid down a maturing tranche of debt and issued a special dividend of 50 cents per share in the first quarter,” Tomczyk continued. “Strong cash flow, combined with a clean and stable balance sheet gives us the flexibility to return or deploy capital to the benefit of our shareholders while maintaining our ability to be opportunistic.”

Note: The term "GAAP" in the following explanation refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
 
(1)   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 holding company's 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, pre-tax income, net income and cash flows from operating activities.
 
(2)  

Our liquid assets metrics are considered non-GAAP financial measures as defined by SEC Regulation G.  We include the excess capital of our broker-dealer and trust company subsidiaries in the calculation of our liquid assets metrics, rather than simply including broker-dealer and trust company cash and cash equivalents, because capital requirements may limit the amount of cash available for dividend from the broker-dealer and trust company subsidiaries to the parent company.  Excess capital, as defined below, is generally available for dividend from the broker-dealer and trust company subsidiaries to the parent company.  We consider our liquid assets metrics to be important measures of our liquidity and of our ability to fund corporate investing and financing activities.  The liquid assets metrics should be considered as supplemental measures of liquidity, rather than as substitutes for cash and cash equivalents.

 

We define "liquid assets - management target" as the sum of (a) corporate cash and cash equivalents, (b) corporate short-term investments and (c) regulatory net capital of (i) our clearing broker-dealer subsidiary in excess of 10% of aggregate debit items and (ii) our introducing broker-dealer subsidiaries in excess of a minimum operational target established by management ($50 million in the case of our primary introducing broker-dealer, TD Ameritrade, Inc.).  “Liquid assets – management target” is based on more conservative measures of broker-dealer net capital than “liquid assets – regulatory threshold” (defined below) because we prefer to maintain significantly more conservative levels of net capital at the broker-dealer subsidiaries than the regulatory thresholds require.  We consider "liquid assets - management target" to be a measure that reflects our liquidity that would be readily available for corporate investing or financing activities under normal operating circumstances.

 
We define "liquid assets - regulatory threshold" as the sum of (a) corporate cash and cash equivalents, (b) corporate short-term investments, (c) regulatory net capital of (i) our clearing broker-dealer subsidiary in excess of 5% of aggregate debit items and (ii) our introducing broker-dealer subsidiaries in excess of the applicable "early warning" net capital requirement and (d) Tier 1 capital of our trust company in excess of the minimum dollar requirement. We consider "liquid assets - regulatory threshold" to be a measure that reflects our liquidity that would be available for corporate investing or financing activities under unusual operating circumstances, such as the need to provide funding for significant strategic business transactions.
