TD.PF.C : No Conversion To FloatingReset

The Toronto-Dominion Bank has announced (on January 16):

that none of its 20 million Non-Cumulative 5-Year Rate Reset Preferred Shares, Series 5 (Non-Viability Contingent Capital (NVCC)) (the “Series 5 Shares”) will be converted on January 31, 2020 into Non-Cumulative Floating Rate Preferred Shares, Series 6 (NVCC) (the “Series 6 Shares”) of TD.

During the conversion period, which ran from January 2, 2020 to January 16, 2020, 168,856 Series 5 Shares were tendered for conversion into Series 6 Shares, which is less than the minimum 1,000,000 shares required to give effect to the conversion, as described in the prospectus supplement for the Series 5 Shares dated December 9, 2014. As a result, no Series 6 Shares will be issued on January 31, 2020 and holders of Series 5 Shares will retain their Series 5 Shares.

The Series 5 Shares are currently listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol TD.PF.C. As previously announced on January 2, 2020, the dividend rate for the Series 5 Shares for the 5 year period from and including January 31, 2020 to but excluding January 31, 2025 will be 3.876%.

TD.PF.C is a FixedReset, 3.75%+225, that commenced trading 2014-12-16 after being announced 2014-12-5. Notice of extension was reported in December, 2019. TD.PF.C will reset at 3.876% effective January 31, 2020. I recommended against conversion. TD.PF.C is tracked by HIMIPref™ and is assigned to the FixedReset-Discount subindex.
