Preferred Share Description
Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD.PF.J)
4.70% Non-Cumulative, Redeemable, NVCC**, Rate-Reset, Series 18 preferred shares
Prospectus - March 7, 2018
DBRS Credit Rating: May 30, 2019 - DBRS upgraded the long-term ratings of The Toronto-Dominion Bank and its related entities, including TD’s Long-Term Issuer Rating to AA (high) from AA. The Bank’s Short-Term Issuer Rating is confirmed at R-1 (high). The trend on all ratings is now Stable.
TD’s Long-Term Issuer Rating is composed of an Intrinsic Assessment (IA) of AA and a Support Assessment (SA) of SA2, which reflects the expectation of timely systemic support from the Government of Canada (rated AAA with a Stable trend by DBRS). The SA2 designation results in a one-notch uplift to the Long-Term Issuer Rating. Under the new Canadian Bank Recapitalization Regime, DBRS expects to eventually remove the uplift from systemic support once the Bank has issued a sufficient level of bail-inable senior debt, which would thereby provide an adequate buffer for non-bail-inable obligations and is then expected to offset the removal of systemic support.
Important Note: NVCC preferred shares have a lower credit rating than other TD Bank preferred share issues. DBRS assigned the NVCC Preferred Shares Series 16 a rating equal to the Bank’s intrinsic assessment less four rating notches because the Series 14 has only an Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI)-compliant non-viable contingent capital (NVCC) trigger, which is consistent with the OSFI requirements for NVCC instruments, and no additional triggers.
**NVCC is short for Non-Viability Contingent Capital and it refers to the issuer's ability to convert the preferred shares into common shares if a "Trigger Event" occurs. See "Convertible by Company" section below for the definition of a trigger event.

- Contingent Conversion: If a "Trigger Event" (as defined below) were to occur, all of the then outstanding Preferred Shares Series 18 and 19 will be automatically exchanged, without the consent of the holders, for newly issued fully-paid and freely-tradable common shares of the Bank, the number of which to be determined in accordance with the Contingent Conversion Formula; rounding down, if necessary, to the nearest whole number of Common Shares, such conversion being referred to herein as the “Contingent Conversion”. Fractions of Common Shares will not be issued or delivered pursuant to a Contingent Conversion and no cash payment will be made in lieu thereof. A Trigger Event means any one of the following: 1) the Superintendent publicly announces that the Bank has been advised, in writing, that the Superintendent is of the opinion that the Bank has ceased, or is about to cease, to be viable and that, after the conversion of the Preferred Shares and all other non-viability contingent capital instruments issued by the Bank and taking into account any other factors or circumstances that are considered relevant or appropriate, it is reasonably likely that the viability of the Bank will be restored or maintained; or 2) a federal or provincial government in Canada publicly announces that the Bank has accepted or agreed to accept a capital injection, or equivalent support, from the federal government or any provincial government or political subdivision or agent or agency thereof without which the Bank would have been determined by the Superintendent to be non-viable. See the share's prospectus for the exact details.
