Stock Split Information
Valuation Day Price
For Canadian income tax purposes, TD's common stock was quoted at $30.00 per share on Valuation Day, December 22, 1971. After adjustments for the two-for-one stock split in December 1975 and the three-for-one stock split in July 1983, this is now equivalent to $5.00 per share.
There is no adjustment for the one-for-one stock dividend in July 1989, the one-for-one stock dividend in July 1999, and the one-for-one stock dividend in January 2014. For Canadian capital gains tax purposes all the stock dividend shares are considered to be acquired after 1971. The number of stock dividend shares received should therefore be added to the post-1971 pool of shares. Because the stock dividend shares have a nil cost, no amount is added to the cost base of the post-1971 pool. The stock dividend does not alter the number or adjusted cost base of any pre-1972 pool of shares held.
