Stock Repurchases

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, TD Ameritrade repurchased 1.8 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $16.38 per share, for approximately $30 million. For the full year of fiscal 2012, the Company has used approximately $196 million to repurchase 11.8 million shares at an average price of $16.58 per share.

Quarterly Dividend Increase

The Company has declared a $0.09 per share quarterly cash dividend, an increase of 50 percent, from the previous quarter’s dividend. The dividend is payable on Nov. 23, 2012 to all holders of record of common stock as of Nov. 9, 2012.

“In 2012, TD Ameritrade returned 56 percent of our net income to our shareholders,” Tomczyk continued. “Increasing our quarterly dividend by 50 percent to $0.09 per share is another effective way for us to continue returning that capital and expand our investor base. Our financial position and cash flow remain healthy, providing us with the continued flexibility to return capital to our shareholders while investing in future growth in these challenging macroeconomic times.”
