TD has no intent to issue common equity in connection with this transaction. The purchase is comprised of net assets of $5.9 billion and around $400 million in goodwill.

Under the agreement, TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TD, will acquire Chrysler Financial in the U.S. and TD will acquire Chrysler Financial in Canada.

Combined with TD's current platforms in Canada and the U.S., the business will be positioned as a top 5 bank-owned auto lender in North America, following the transaction. Ed Clark, TD's Group President and CEO said the transaction represents a unique opportunity to purchase a great organic growth platform at an attractive price.
