Accelerated Return Notes®
Linked to the S&P 500® Index due August  , 2022
Summary
The Accelerated Return Notes® Linked to the S&P 500® Index due August  , 2022  (the “notes”) are our senior unsecured debt securities, Series E. The notes are not guaranteed or insured by the CDIC, the FDIC or any other governmental agency, and are not, either directly or indirectly, an obligation of any third party. The notes are not bail-inable debt securities (as defined in the prospectus) under the CDIC Act. The notes will rank equally with all of our other senior unsecured debt. Any payments due on the notes, including any repayment of principal, will be subject to the credit risk of TD. The notes provide you a leveraged return, subject to a cap, if the Ending Value of the Market Measure, which is the S&P 500® Index (the “Index”), is greater than the Starting Value. If the Ending Value is equal to the Starting Value, you will receive the principal amount of your notes. If the Ending Value is less than the Starting Value, you will lose all or a portion of the principal amount of your notes. Any payments on the notes will be calculated based on the $10 principal amount per unit and will depend on the performance of the Index, subject to our credit risk. See “Terms of the Notes” below.
The economic terms of the notes (including the Capped Value) are based on our internal funding rate (which is our internal borrowing rate based on variables such as market benchmarks and our appetite for borrowing) and several factors, including selling concessions, discounts, commissions or fees expected to be paid in connection with the offering of the notes, the estimated profit that we expect to earn in connection with structuring the notes, estimated costs which we may incur in connection with the notes and the economic terms of certain related hedging arrangements as discussed further below and under “Structuring the Notes” on page TS-15.
On the cover page of this term sheet, we have provided the initial estimated value range for the notes. The initial estimated value of your notes on the pricing date will be less than their public offering price. The range of initial estimated values was determined by reference to our internal pricing models, which take into account a number of variables, typically including expected volatility of the Market Measure, interest rates (forecasted, current and historical rates), price-sensitivity analysis, time to maturity of the notes and our internal funding rate which take into account a number of variables and are based on a number of subjective assumptions, which are not evaluated or verified on an independent basis and may or may not materialize. Because our internal funding rate generally represents a discount from the levels at which our benchmark debt securities trade in the secondary market, the use of an internal funding rate for the notes rather than the levels at which our benchmark debt securities trade in the secondary market is expected, assuming all other economic terms are held constant, to increase the initial estimated value of the notes and to have an adverse effect on the economic terms of the notes. For more information about the initial estimated value and the structuring of the notes, see the related discussion under “Risk Factors” and “Structuring the Notes” herein.

Investor Considerations

You may wish to consider an investment in the notes if:
You anticipate that the Index will increase moderately from the Starting Value to the Ending Value.
You are willing to risk a substantial or entire loss of principal if the Index decreases from the Starting Value to the Ending Value.

You are willing to accept that a limited market or no market exists for sales of the notes prior to maturity, and understand that the market price for the notes in any secondary market may be adversely affected by various factors, including, but not limited to, our actual and perceived creditworthiness, our internal funding rate and fees and charges on the notes, as described on page TS-2.
You are willing to assume our credit risk, as issuer of the notes, for all payments under the notes, including the Redemption Amount.
The notes may not be an appropriate investment for you if:
You believe that the Index will decrease from the Starting Value to the Ending Value or that it will not increase sufficiently over the term of the notes to provide you with your desired return.
You seek principal repayment or preservation of capital.
You seek an uncapped return on your investment.

Hypothetical Payout Profile
The graph below is based on hypothetical numbers and values.

Accelerated Return Notes®
This graph reflects the returns on the notes, based on the Participation Rate of 300% and a hypothetical Capped Value of $11.05 per unit (the midpoint of the Capped Value range of [$10.85 to $11.25]). The green line reflects the returns on the notes, while the dotted gray line reflects the returns of a direct investment in the stocks included in the Index, excluding dividends.
This graph has been prepared for purposes of illustration only. See the below table for a further illustration of the range of hypothetical payments at maturity.
 
Hypothetical Payments at Maturity
The following table and examples are for purposes of illustration only. They are based on hypothetical values and show hypothetical returns on the notes. They illustrate the calculation of the Redemption Amount and total rate of return based on a hypothetical Starting Value of 100, the Participation Rate of 300%, a hypothetical Capped Value of $11.05 per unit and a range of hypothetical Ending Values. The actual amount you receive and the resulting total rate of return will depend on the actual Starting Value, Ending Value and Capped Value and whether you hold the notes to maturity. The following examples do not take into account any tax consequences from investing in the notes.
For recent actual levels of the Market Measure, see “The Index” section below.  The Index is a price return index and as such the Ending Value will not include any income generated by dividends or other distributions paid on the stocks included in the Index, which you would otherwise be entitled to receive if you invested in those stocks directly. In addition, all payments on the notes are subject to issuer credit risk. If TD, as issuer, becomes unable to meet its obligations as they become due, you could lose some or all of your investment.

Risk Factors
There are important differences between the notes and a conventional debt security. An investment in the notes involves significant risks, including those listed below. You should carefully review the more detailed explanation of risks relating to the notes in the “Risk Factors” sections beginning on page PS-7 of product supplement EQUITY ARN-1 and page 1 of the prospectus. We also urge you to consult your investment, legal, tax, accounting and other advisors as to the risks entailed by an investment in the notes and the suitability of the notes in light of your particular circumstances before you invest in the notes.
Structure-Related Risks

Depending on the performance of the Index as measured shortly before the maturity date, your investment may result in a loss; there is no guaranteed return of principal.

Your return on the notes may be less than the yield you could earn by owning a conventional fixed or floating rate debt security of comparable maturity.

Your investment return is limited to the return represented by the Capped Value and may be less than a comparable investment directly in the stocks included in the Index.
Valuation- and Market-Related Risks

The initial estimated value of your notes on the pricing date will be less than their public offering price. The difference between the public offering price of your notes and the initial estimated value of the notes reflects costs and expected profits associated with selling and structuring the notes, as well as hedging our obligations under the notes (including, but not limited to, the hedging related charge, as further described under “Structuring the Notes” on page TS-15). Because hedging our obligations entails risks and may be influenced by market forces beyond our control, this hedging may result in a profit that is more or less than expected, or a loss and the amount of any such profit or loss will not be known until the maturity date.

The initial estimated value of your notes is based on our internal funding rate. The internal funding rate used in the determination of the initial estimated value of the notes generally represents a discount from the credit spreads for our conventional fixed-rate debt securities and the borrowing rate we would pay for our conventional fixed-rate debt securities. This discount is based on, among other things, our view of the funding value of the notes as well as the higher issuance, operational and ongoing liability management costs of the notes in comparison to those costs for our conventional fixed-rate debt, as well as estimated financing costs of any hedge positions (including, but not limited to, the hedging related charge, as further described under “Structuring the Notes” on page TS-15), taking into account regulatory and internal requirements. If the interest rate implied by the credit spreads for our conventional fixed-rate debt securities, or the borrowing rate we would pay for our conventional fixed-rate debt securities were to be used, we would expect the economic terms of the notes to be more favorable to you. Additionally, assuming all other economic terms are held constant, the use of an internal funding rate for the notes is expected to increase the initial estimated value of the notes and have an adverse effect on the economic terms of the notes.

The initial estimated value of the notes is based on our internal pricing models, which may prove to be inaccurate and may be different from the pricing models of other financial institutions, including BofAS and MLPF&S. The initial estimated value of your notes when the terms of the notes are set on the pricing date is based on our internal pricing models, which take into account a number of variables, typically including the expected volatility of the Market Measure, interest rates (forecasted, current and historical rates), price-sensitivity analysis, time to maturity of the notes and our internal funding rate, and are based on a number of subjective assumptions, which are not evaluated or verified on an independent basis and may or may not materialize. Further, our pricing models may be different from other financial institutions’ pricing models, including those of BofAS and MLPF&S, and the methodologies used by us to estimate the value of the notes may not be consistent with those of other financial institutions that may be purchasers or sellers of notes in any secondary market. As a result, the secondary market price of your notes, if any, may be materially less than the initial estimated value of the notes determined by reference to our internal pricing models. In addition, market conditions and other relevant factors in the future may change and any assumptions may prove to be incorrect.

The initial estimated value of your notes is not a prediction of the prices at which you may sell your notes in the secondary market, if any exists, and such secondary market prices, if any, will likely be less than the public offering price of your notes, may be less than the initial estimated value of your notes and could result in a substantial loss to you. The initial estimated value of the notes will not be a prediction of the prices at which MLPF&S, BofAS, their or our respective affiliates or third parties may be willing to purchase the notes from you in secondary market transactions (if they are willing to purchase, which they are not obligated to do). The price at which you may be able to sell your notes in the secondary market at any time, if any, will be influenced by many factors that cannot be predicted, such as market conditions, and any bid and ask spread for similar sized trades, and may be substantially less than the initial estimated value of the notes. Further, as secondary market prices of your notes take into account the levels at which our debt securities trade in the secondary market, and do not take into account our various costs and expected profits associated with selling and structuring the notes, as well as hedging our obligations under the notes, secondary market prices of your notes will likely be less than the public offering price of your notes. As a result, the price at which MLPF&S, BofAS, their or our respective affiliates or third parties may be willing to purchase the notes from you in secondary market transactions, if any, will likely be less than the price you paid for your notes, and any sale prior to maturity could result in a substantial loss to you.

A trading market is not expected to develop for the notes. None of us, any of our affiliates, MLPF&S or BofAS is obligated to make a market for, or to repurchase, the notes. There is no assurance that any party will be willing to purchase your notes at any price in any secondary market.
Conflict-Related Risks

Our business, hedging and trading activities, and those of MLPF&S, BofAS and our and their respective affiliates (including trades in shares of companies included in the Index), and any hedging and trading activities we, MLPF&S, BofAS or our or their respective affiliates engage in for our clients’ accounts, may affect the market value of, and return on, the notes and may create conflicts of interest with you.

There may be potential conflicts of interest involving the calculation agents, one of which is us and one of which is BofAS, as the determinations made by the calculation agents may be discretionary and could adversely affect any payment on the notes.
Market Measure-Related Risks

The Index sponsor (as defined below) may adjust the Index in a way that may adversely affect its level and your interests, and the Index sponsor has no obligation to consider your interests.

You will have no rights of a holder of the securities included in the Index and you will not be entitled to receive securities or dividends or other distributions by the issuers of those securities.

While we, MLPF&S, BofAS or our or their respective affiliates may from time to time own securities of companies included in the Index, except to the extent that the common stock of Bank of America Corporation (the parent company of MLPF&S and BofAS) is included in the Index, none of us, MLPF&S, BofAS or our or their respective affiliates control any company included in the Index, and have not verified any disclosure made by any such company.
General Credit Risks

Payments on the notes are subject to our credit risk, and actual or perceived changes in our creditworthiness are expected to affect the value of the notes. If we become unable to meet our financial obligations as they become due, you may lose some or all of your investment.
Tax-Related Risks

The U.S. federal income tax consequences of the notes are uncertain and, because of this uncertainty, there is a risk that the U.S. federal income tax consequences of the notes could differ materially and adversely from the treatment described below in “Supplemental Discussion of U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences”, as described further in product supplement EQUITY ARN-1 under “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences — Alternative Treatments”. You should consult your tax advisor as the tax consequences of an investment in the notes and the potential alternative treatments.

For a discussion of the Canadian federal income tax consequences of investing in the notes, please see the discussion in product supplement EQUITY ARN-1 under “Supplemental Discussion of Canadian Tax Consequences”. If you are not a Non-resident Holder (as that term is defined in the prospectus) for Canadian federal income tax purposes or if you acquire the notes in the secondary market, you should consult your tax advisor as to the consequences of acquiring, holding and disposing of the notes and receiving the payments that might be due under the notes.

The Index
All disclosures contained in this term sheet regarding the Index, including, without limitation, its make-up, method of calculation, and changes in its components, have been derived from publicly available sources. The information reflects the policies of, and is subject to change by S&P Dow Jones LLC (the “Index sponsor” or “S&P”). The Index sponsor, which licenses the copyright and all other rights to the Index, has no obligation to continue to publish, and may discontinue publication of, the Index. The consequences of the Index sponsor discontinuing publication of the Index are discussed in the section entitled “Description of ARNs—Discontinuance of an Index” beginning on page PS-29 of product supplement EQUITY ARN-1. None of us, our affiliates, the calculation agents, MLPF&S or BofAS has independently verified the accuracy or completeness of any information obtained with respect to the Index nor accepts any responsibility for the calculation, maintenance or publication of the Index or any successor index. None of the websites referenced in the Index description below, or any materials included in those websites, are incorporated by reference into this document, the product supplement EQUITY ARN-1 or the prospectus.
The Index includes a representative sample of 500 companies in leading industries of the U.S. economy. The 500 companies are not the 500 largest companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) and not all 500 companies are listed on the NYSE. The Index sponsor, S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC, chooses companies for inclusion in the Index with an aim of achieving a distribution by broad industry groupings that approximates the distribution of these groupings in the common stock population of the U.S. equity market. Although the Index contains 500 constituent companies, at any one time it may contain greater than 500 constituent trading lines since some companies included in the Index prior to July 31, 2017 may be represented by multiple share class lines in the Index. The Index is calculated, maintained and published by the Index sponsor and is part of the S&P Dow Jones Indices family of indices. Additional information is available on the following websites: spglobal.com/spdji/en/indices/equity/sp-500 and spdji.com/. We are not incorporating by reference the websites or any material they include in this document, the product supplement EQUITY LIRN-1 or the prospectus.
The Index sponsor intends for the Index to provide a performance benchmark for the large-cap U.S. equity markets. Index additions and deletions are made on an as-needed basis and there is no schedule for constituent reviews. Index additions and deletions are announced with at least three business days advance notice. Less than three business days’ notice may be given at the discretion of the Index sponsor. Relevant criteria for additions to the Index that are employed by the Index sponsor include: the company proposed for addition should have an unadjusted company market capitalization of $8.2 billion or more and a security level float-adjusted market capitalization that is at least $4.1 billion (for spin-offs, eligibility is determined using when-issued prices, if available); using composite pricing and volume, the ratio of annual dollar value traded (defined as average closing price over the period multiplied by historical volume) in the proposed constituent to float-adjusted market capitalization of that company should be at least 1.00 and the stock should trade a minimum of 250,000 shares in each of the six months leading up to the evaluation date; the company must be a U.S. company (characterized as a Form 10-K filer with its U.S. portion of fixed assets and revenues constituting a plurality of the total and with a primary listing of the common stock on the NYSE, NYSE Arca, NYSE American (formerly NYSE MKT), Nasdaq Global Select Market, Nasdaq Select Market, Nasdaq Capital Market, Cboe BZX (formerly Bats BZX), Cboe BYX (formerly Bats BYX), Cboe EDGA (formerly Bats EDGA) or Cboe EDGX (formerly Bats EDGX) (each, an “eligible exchange”)); the proposed constituent has an investable weight factor (“IWF”) of 10% or more; the inclusion of the company will contribute to sector balance in the Index relative to sector balance in the market in the relevant market capitalization range; financial viability (the sum of the most recent four consecutive quarters’ Generally Accepted Accounting Principles earnings (net income excluding discontinued operations) should be positive as should the most recent quarter); and, for initial public offerings, the company must be traded on an eligible exchange for at least twelve months (spin-offs or in-specie distributions from existing constituents do not need to be traded on an eligible exchange for twelve months prior to their inclusion in the Index). In addition, constituents of the S&P MidCap 400® Index and the S&P SmallCap 600® Index can be added to the Index without meeting the financial viability, IWF and/or liquidity eligibility criteria if the S&P Index Committee decides that such an addition will enhance the representativeness of the Index as a market benchmark. Further, constituents of the S&P Total Market Index Ex S&P Composite 1500 (which includes all eligible U.S. common equities except for those included in the Index, the S&P MidCap 400® Index and the S&P SmallCap 600® Index) that acquire a constituent of the Index, the S&P MidCap 400® Index or the S&P SmallCap 600® Index that do not fully meet the financial viability or IWF criteria may still be added to the Index at the discretion of the S&P Index Committee if the S&P Index Committee determines that the addition could minimize turnover and enhance the representativeness of the Index as a market benchmark. Certain types of organizational structures and securities are always excluded, including business development companies, limited partnerships, master limited partnerships, limited liability companies, OTC bulletin board issues, closed-end funds, exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”), exchange-traded notes, royalty trusts, tracking stocks, special purpose acquisition companies, preferred stock and convertible preferred stock, unit trusts, equity warrants, convertible bonds, investment trusts, rights and American depositary receipts. Constituents are deleted from the Index when they are involved in mergers, acquisitions or significant restructurings such that they no longer meet the inclusion criteria, and when they substantially violate one or more of the addition criteria. Constituents that are delisted or moved to the pink sheets or the OTC bulletin board are removed, and those that experience a trading halt may be retained or removed in the Index sponsor’s discretion. The Index sponsor evaluates additions and deletions with a view to maintaining Index continuity.
For constituents included in the Index prior to July 31, 2017, all publicly listed multiple share class lines are included separately in the Index, subject to, in the case of any such share class line, that share class line satisfying the liquidity and float criteria discussed above and subject to certain exceptions. It is possible that one listed share class line of a company may be included in the Index while a second listed share class line of the same company is excluded. For companies that issue a second publicly traded share class to Index share class holders, the newly issued share class line is considered for inclusion if the event is mandatory and the market capitalization of the distributed class is not considered to be de minimis.
As of July 31, 2017, companies with multiple share class lines are no longer eligible for inclusion in the Index. Only common shares are considered when determining whether a company has a multiple share class structure. Constituents of the Index prior to July 31, 2017

with multiple share class lines will be grandfathered in and continue to be included in the Index. If a constituent reorganizes into a multiple share class line structure, that company will be reviewed for continued inclusion in the Index at the discretion of the S&P Index Committee.
Select information regarding top constituents and industry and/or sector weightings may be made available by the Index sponsor on its website.
Calculation of the Index
The Index is calculated using a base-weighted aggregative methodology. The level of the Index on any day for which a level is published is determined by a fraction, the numerator of which is the aggregate of the market price of each constituent times the number of shares of such constituent, and the denominator of which is the divisor, which is described more fully below. The “market value” of any constituent is the product of the market price per share of that constituent times the number of the then-outstanding shares of such constituent that are then included in the Index.
The Index is also sometimes called a “base-weighted aggregative index” because of its use of a divisor. The “divisor” is a value calculated by the Index sponsor that is intended to maintain conformity in index levels over time and is adjusted for all changes in the constituents’ share capital after the “base date” as described below. The level of the Index reflects the total market value of all constituents relative to the Index’s base date of 1941-43.
In addition, the Index is float-adjusted, meaning that the share counts used in calculating the Index reflect only those shares available to investors rather than all of a company’s outstanding shares. The Index sponsor seeks to exclude shares held by long-term, strategic shareholders concerned with the control of a company, a group that generally includes the following: officers and directors and related individuals whose holdings are publicly disclosed, private equity, venture capital, special equity firms, asset managers and insurance companies with board of director representation, publicly traded companies that hold shares in another company, holders of restricted shares (except for shares held as part of a lock-up agreement), company-sponsored employee share plans/trusts, defined contribution plans/savings, investment plans, foundations or family trusts associated with the company, government entities at all levels (except government retirement or pension funds), sovereign wealth funds and any individual person listed as a 5% or greater stakeholder in a company as reported in regulatory filings (collectively, “strategic holders”). To this end, the Index sponsor excludes all share-holdings (other than depositary banks, pension funds (including government pension and retirement funds), mutual funds, ETF providers, investment funds, asset managers (including hedge funds with no board of director representation), investment funds of insurance companies (except in certain countries where insurance companies may be considered strategic holders based on regulatory issues and country-specific practices) and independent foundations not associated with the company) with a position greater than 5% of the outstanding shares of a company from the float-adjusted share count to be used in Index calculations.
The exclusion is accomplished by calculating an IWF for each constituent that is part of the numerator of the float-adjusted index fraction described above:
IWF = (available float shares)/(total shares outstanding)
where available float shares is defined as total shares outstanding less shares held by strategic holders. In most cases, an IWF is reported to the nearest one percentage point. For companies with multiple share class lines, a separate IWF is calculated for each share class line. In most cases, an IWF is reported to the nearest one percentage point.
Maintenance of the Index
In order to keep the Index comparable over time the Index sponsor engages in an index maintenance process. The Index maintenance process involves changing the constituents as discussed above, and also involves maintaining quality assurance processes and procedures, adjusting the number of shares used to calculate the Index, monitoring and completing the adjustments for company additions and deletions, adjusting for stock splits and stock dividends and adjusting for other corporate actions. In addition to its daily governance of indices and maintenance of the Index methodology, at least once within any 12 month period, the S&P Index Committee reviews the Index methodology to ensure the Index continues to achieve the stated objective, and that the data and methodology remain effective. The S&P Index Committee may at times consult with investors, market participants, security issuers included in or potentially included in the Index, or investment and financial experts.
Divisor Adjustments
The two types of adjustments primarily used by the Index sponsor are divisor adjustments and adjustments to the number of shares (including float adjustments) used to calculate the Index. Set forth below is a table of certain corporate events and their resulting effect on the divisor and the share count. If a corporate event requires an adjustment to the divisor, that event has the effect of altering the market value of the affected constituent and consequently of altering the aggregate market value of the constituents following the event. In order that the level of the Index not be affected by the altered market value (which could be an increase or decrease) of the affected constituent, the Index sponsor generally derives a new divisor by dividing the post-event market value of the constituents by the pre-event Index level, which has the effect of reducing the Index’s post-event level to the pre-event level.
Changes to the Number of Shares of a Constituent
The index maintenance process also involves tracking the changes in the number of shares included for each of the constituents. The timing of adjustments to the number of shares depends on the type of event causing the change, and whether the change represents 5% or more of the total share count (for companies with multiple share class lines, the 5% threshold is based on each individual share class line rather than total company shares). Changes as a result of mandatory events, such as mergers or acquisition driven share/IWF changes, stock splits and mandatory distributions are not subject to a minimum threshold for implementation and are implemented when

the transaction occurs. At the Index sponsor’s discretion, however, de minimis merger and acquisition changes may be accumulated and implemented with the updates made with the quarterly share updates as described below. Changes in a constituent’s total shares of at least 5% due to public offerings (which must be underwritten, have a publicly available prospectus or prospectus summary filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and include a public confirmation that the offering has been completed) are eligible for next day implementation. Next day implementation will include a review of the company’s IWF using the latest publicly available ownership data. Any change in the IWF of at least five percentage points resulting from the review is implemented with the share update. Shares sold as part of a forward sale agreement are not eligible for next day implementation as these shares are not included in the company’s share count until full settlement of the agreement. Share updates resulting from the settlement of forward sale agreements are updated in a future weekly or quarterly rebalancing.
Share changes of 5% or greater resulting from aggregated smaller share change events are implemented when the Index sponsor is able to validate the cumulative change. Share changes are applied weekly and are announced on Fridays for implementation after the close of trading on the following Friday. For changes of less than 5%, on the third Friday of the last month in each calendar quarter, the Index sponsor updates the share totals of companies in the Index as required by any changes in the number of shares outstanding. The Index sponsor implements a share / IWF freeze beginning after the market close on the Tuesday preceding the second Friday of each quarterly rebalancing month and ending after the market close on the third Friday of the quarterly rebalancing month. During this frozen period, shares and IWFs are not changed except for mandatory corporate action events (merger activity, stock splits and rights offerings).
Adjustments for Corporate Actions
There is a large range of corporate actions that may affect companies included in the Index. Certain corporate actions require the Index sponsor to recalculate the share count or the float adjustment or to make an adjustment to the divisor to prevent the level of the Index from changing as a result of the corporate action. This helps ensure that the movement of the Index does not reflect the corporate actions of individual companies in the Index.
Spin-Offs
As a general policy, a spin-off security is added to the Index on the ex-date at a price of zero (with no divisor adjustment) and will remain in the Index for at least one trading day. On the ex-date the spin-off will have the same attributes and capping adjustment factor as its parent company. The spin-off security will remain in the Index if it meets all eligibility criteria. If the spin-off security is determined ineligible to remain in the Index, it will generally be removed after at least one day of regular way trading (with a divisor adjustment). The weight of the spin-off being deleted is reinvested across all the constituents proportionately such that the relative weights of all constituents are unchanged. The net change in Index market capitalization will cause a divisor change.
Companies that are spun off from a constituent do not need to meet the eligibility criteria for new constituents, but they should be considered U.S. domiciled for Index purposes. At the discretion of the S&P Index Committee, a spin-off company may be retained in the Index if the S&P Index Committee determines it has a total market capitalization representative of the Index. If the spin-off company’s estimated market capitalization is below the minimum of $8.2 billion for addition criteria but there are other constituents that have a significantly lower total market capitalization than the spin-off company, the S&P Index Committee may decide to retain the spin-off company in the Index.
Several additional types of corporate actions, and their related treatment, are listed in the table below.
 
Corporate Action
 
Treatment
 
Constituent addition/deletion
 
 
Addition
Constituents are added at the float market capitalization weight. The net change to the Index market capitalization causes a divisor adjustment.
Deletion
The weights of all constituents in the Index will proportionally change. Relative weights will stay the same. The divisor will change due to the net change in the Index market capitalization.
 
Change in shares outstanding
 
Increasing (decreasing) the shares outstanding increases (decreases) the market capitalization of the Index. The change to the Index market capitalization causes a divisor adjustment.
 
Split/reverse split
 
Shares outstanding are adjusted by split ratio. Stock price is adjusted by split ratio. There is no change to the Index market capitalization and no divisor adjustment.

Change in IWF
 
Increasing (decreasing) the IWF increases (decreases) the market capitalization of the index. A net change to the Index market capitalization causes a divisor adjustment.
 
Ordinary dividend
 
When a company pays an ordinary cash dividend, the Index does not make any adjustments to the price or shares of the stock. As a result there are no divisor adjustments to the Index.
 
Special dividend
 
The stock price is adjusted by the amount of the special dividend. The net change to the Index market capitalization causes a divisor adjustment.
 
Rights Offering
 
All rights offerings that are in-the-money on the ex-date are applied under the assumption the rights are fully subscribed. The stock price is adjusted by the value of the rights and the shares outstanding are increased by the rights ratio. The net change in market capitalization causes a divisor adjustment.

Any company that is removed from the Index, the S&P MidCap 400® Index or the S&P SmallCap 600® Index must wait a minimum of one year from its removal date before being reconsidered as a replacement candidate for the Index.
Recalculation Policy
The Index sponsor reserves the right to recalculate and republish the Index at its discretion in the event one of the following issues has occurred: (1) incorrect or revised closing price of one or more constituent securities; (2) missed corporate event; (3) incorrect application of corporate action or Index methodology; (4) late announcement of a corporate event; or (5) incorrect calculation or data entry error. The decision to recalculate the Index is made at the discretion of the index manager and/or index committee, as further discussed below. The potential market impact or disruption resulting from the potential recalculation is considered when making any such decision. In the event of an incorrect closing price, a missed corporate event or a misapplied corporate action, a late announcement of a corporate event, or an incorrect calculation or data entry error that is discovered within two trading days of its occurrence, the index manager may, at his or her discretion, recalculate the Index without involving the index committee. In the event any such event is discovered beyond the two trading day period, the index committee shall decide whether the Index should be recalculated. In the event of an incorrect application of the methodology that results in the incorrect composition and/or weighting of constituents, the index committee shall determine whether or not to recalculate the Index following specified guidelines. In the event that the Index is recalculated, it shall be done within a reasonable timeframe following the detection and review of the issue.
Calculations and Pricing Disruptions
Closing levels for the Index are calculated by the Index sponsor based on the closing price of the individual constituents of the Index as set by their primary exchange. Closing prices are received by the Index sponsor from one of its third party vendors and verified by comparing them with prices from an alternative vendor. The vendors receive the closing price from the primary exchanges. Real-time intraday prices are calculated similarly without a second verification. Prices used for the calculation of real time Index levels are based on the “Consolidated Tape”. The Consolidated Tape is an aggregation of trades for each constituent over all regional exchanges and trading venues and includes the primary exchange. If there is a failure or interruption on one or more exchanges, real-time calculations will continue as long as the “Consolidated Tape” is operational.
If an interruption is not resolved prior to the market close, official closing prices will be determined by following the hierarchy set out in NYSE Rule 123C. A notice is published on the Index sponsor website at spdji.com indicating any changes to the prices used in Index calculations. In extreme circumstances, the Index sponsor may decide to delay Index adjustments or not publish the Index. Real-time indices are not restated.
Unexpected Exchange Closures
An unexpected market/exchange closure occurs when a market/exchange fully or partially fails to open or trading is temporarily halted. This can apply to a single exchange or to a market as a whole, when all of the primary exchanges are closed and/or not trading. Unexpected market/exchange closures are usually due to unforeseen circumstances, such as natural disasters, inclement weather, outages, or other events.
To a large degree, the Index sponsor is dependent on the exchanges to provide guidance in the event of an unexpected exchange closure. The Index sponsor’s decision making is dependent on exchange guidance regarding pricing and mandatory corporate actions.
NYSE Rule 123C provides closing contingency procedures for determining an official closing price for listed securities if the exchange is unable to conduct a closing transaction in one or more securities due to a system or technical issue.

3:00 PM ET is the deadline for an exchange to determine its plan of action regarding an outage scenario. As such, the Index sponsor also uses 3:00 PM ET as the cutoff.
If all major exchanges fail to open or unexpectedly halt trading intraday due to unforeseen circumstances, the Index sponsor will take the following actions:
Market Disruption Prior to Open of Trading:
(i) If all exchanges indicate that trading will not open for a given day, the Index sponsor will treat the day as an  unscheduled market holiday. The decision will be communicated to clients as soon as possible through the normal  channels. Indices containing multiple markets will be calculated as normal, provided that at least one market is open that day. Indices which only contain closed markets will not be calculated.
(ii) If exchanges indicate that trading, although delayed, will open for a given day, the Index sponsor will begin index  calculation when the exchanges open.
Market Disruption Intraday:
(i) If exchanges indicate that trading will not resume for a given day, the Index level will be calculated using prices  determined by the exchanges based on NYSE Rule 123C. Intraday Index levels will continue to use the last traded composite  price until the primary exchange publishes official closing prices.

Supplement to the Plan of Distribution (Conflicts of Interest)
Under our distribution agreement, we have appointed TDS, an affiliate of TD, and BofAS as agents for the sale of the notes. TDS will purchase the notes from us, and BofAS will purchase the notes from TDS, each at the public offering price less the indicated underwriting discount indicated on the cover hereof MLPF&S will purchase the notes from BofAS for resale, and will receive a selling concession in connection with the sale of the notes in an amount up to the full amount of the underwriting discount indicated on the cover of this term sheet. Except as described below, BofAS and MLPF&S will offer the notes at the public offering price set forth on the cover page hereof. TD will reimburse TDS for certain expenses in connection with its role in the offer and sale of the notes, and TD will pay TDS a fee in connection with its role in the offer and sale of the notes.
We may deliver the notes against payment therefor in New York, New York on a date that is greater than two business days following the pricing date. Under Rule 15c6-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, trades in the secondary market generally are required to settle in two business days, unless the parties to any such trade expressly agree otherwise. Accordingly, if the initial settlement of the notes occurs more than two business days from the pricing date, purchasers who wish to trade the notes more than two business days prior to the settlement date will be required to specify alternative settlement arrangements to prevent a failed settlement.
The notes will not be listed on any securities exchange. In the original offering of the notes, the notes will be sold in minimum investment amounts of 100 units. If you place an order to purchase the notes, you are consenting to MLPF&S and/or one of its affiliates acting as a principal in effecting the transaction for your account.
MLPF&S, BofAS or our or their affiliates may repurchase and resell the notes, with repurchases and resales being made at prices related to then-prevailing market prices or at negotiated prices, and these prices will include MLPF&S’ and BofAS’ (or such other entity’s) trading commissions and mark-ups or mark-downs. MLPF&S and BofAS (or such other entity) may act as principal or agent in these market-making transactions, but is not obligated to engage in any such transactions. At MLPF&S’ and BofAS’ discretion, MLPF&S and BofAS may offer to buy the notes in the secondary market at a price that may exceed TD’s initial estimated value of the notes for a short, undetermined initial period after the issuance of the notes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any price offered by us, MLPF&S, BofAS or our or their affiliates for the notes will be based on then-prevailing market conditions and other considerations, including the performance of the Index and the remaining term of the notes. However, none of us, MLPF&S, BofAS or any of our or their respective affiliates is obligated to purchase your notes at any price or at any time, and we cannot assure you that we, MLPF&S, BofAS or any of our or their respective affiliates will purchase your notes at a price that equals or exceeds the initial estimated value of the notes.
BofAS has informed us that, as of the date hereof, it expects that if you hold your notes in a BofAS account, the value of the notes shown on your account statement will be based on BofAS’ estimate of the value of the notes if BofAS or another of its affiliates were to make a market in the notes, which it is not obligated to do. That estimate will be based upon the price that BofAS may pay for the notes in light of then-prevailing market conditions, and other considerations, as mentioned above, and will include transaction costs. At certain times, this price may be higher than or lower than our initial estimated value of the notes.
TDS is an affiliate of TD and, as such, has a “conflict of interest” in this offering within the meaning of Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) Rule 5121. Additionally, TD will receive the net proceeds from the initial public offering of the notes, thus creating an additional conflict of interest within the meaning of FINRA Rule 5121. Consequently, this offering of the notes will be conducted in compliance with the provisions of FINRA Rule 5121 and TDS is not permitted to sell the notes to an account over which it exercises discretionary authority without the prior specific written approval of the account holder.
The distribution of the Note Prospectus in connection with these offers or sales will be solely for the purpose of providing investors with the description of the terms of the notes that was made available to investors in connection with their initial offering. Secondary market investors should not, and will not be authorized to, rely on the Note Prospectus for information regarding TD or for any purpose other than that described in the immediately preceding sentence.
An investor’s household, as referenced on the cover of this term sheet, will generally include accounts held by any of the following, as determined by MLPF&S in its discretion and acting in good faith based upon information then available to MLPF&S:

the investor’s spouse (including a domestic partner), siblings, parents, grandparents, spouse’s parents, children and grandchildren, but excluding accounts held by aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews or any other family relationship not directly above or below the individual investor;

a family investment vehicle, including foundations, limited partnerships and personal holding companies, but only if the beneficial owners of the vehicle consist solely of the investor or members of the investor’s household as described above; and

a trust where the grantors and/or beneficiaries of the trust consist solely of the investor or members of the investor’s household as described above; provided that, purchases of the notes by a trust generally cannot be aggregated together with any purchases made by a trustee’s personal account.
Purchases in retirement accounts will not be considered part of the same household as an individual investor’s personal or other non-retirement account, except for individual retirement accounts, simplified employee pension plans, savings incentive match plan for employees and single-participant or owners only accounts (i.e., retirement accounts held by self-employed individuals, business owners or partners with no employees other than their spouses).
Please contact your Merrill financial advisor if you have any questions about the application of these provisions to your specific circumstances or think you are eligible.

Structuring the Notes
The notes are our senior unsecured debt securities, Series E, the return on which is linked to the performance of the Index. As is the case for all of our debt securities, including our market-linked notes, the economic terms of the notes reflect our actual or perceived creditworthiness at the time of pricing. Our internal funding rate generally represents a discount from the credit spreads for our conventional fixed-rate debt securities and the borrowing rate we would pay for our conventional fixed-rate debt securities. If the interest rate implied by the credit spreads for our conventional fixed-rate debt securities, or the borrowing rate we would pay for our conventional fixed-rate debt securities were to be used, we would expect the economic terms of the notes to be more favorable to you. Therefore, due to these factors, the public offering price you pay to purchase the notes will be greater than the initial estimated value of the notes.
At maturity, we are required to pay the Redemption Amount to holders of the notes, which will be calculated based on the performance of the Index and the $10 per unit principal amount. In order to meet these payment obligations, at the time we issue the notes, we may choose to enter into certain hedging arrangements (which may include call options, put options or other derivatives) with BofAS, MLPF&S or one of their affiliates. The terms of these hedging arrangements are determined by seeking bids from market participants, which may include MLPF&S, BofAS and one or more of our or their affiliates, and take into account a number of factors, including our creditworthiness, interest rate movements, the volatility of the Index, the tenor of the notes and the tenor of the hedging arrangements. The economic terms and initial estimated value of the notes depend, in part, on the terms of these hedging arrangements.
BofAS has advised us that the hedging arrangements will include a hedging related charge of approximately $0.05 per unit, reflecting an estimated profit to be credited to BofAS from these transactions. Since hedging entails risk and may be influenced by unpredictable market forces, additional profits and losses from these hedging arrangements may be realized by BofAS or any third party hedge providers.

Summary of Canadian Federal Income Tax Consequences
For a discussion of the Canadian federal income tax consequences of investing in the notes, please see the discussion in product supplement EQUITY ARN-1 under “Supplemental Discussion of Canadian Tax Consequences”. If you are not a Non-resident Holder (as that term is defined in the prospectus) for Canadian federal income tax purposes or if you acquire the notes in the secondary market, you should consult your tax advisors as to the consequences of acquiring, holding and disposing of the notes and receiving the payments that might be due under the notes.
Supplemental Discussion of U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences
The U.S. federal income tax consequences of your investment in the notes are uncertain. No statutory, regulatory, judicial or administrative authority directly discusses how the notes should be treated for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Some of these tax consequences are summarized below, but we urge you to read the more detailed discussion under “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences” beginning on page PS-41 of product supplement EQUITY ARN-1 and to discuss the tax consequences of your particular situation with your tax advisor. This discussion is based upon the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), final, temporary and proposed U.S. Department of the Treasury (the “Treasury”) regulations, rulings and decisions, in each case, as available and in effect as of the date hereof, all of which are subject to change, possibly with retroactive effect. Tax consequences under state, local and non-U.S. laws are not addressed herein. No ruling from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) has been sought as to the U.S. federal income tax consequences of your investment in the notes, and the following discussion is not binding on the IRS. Except as discussed under the heading “Non-U.S. Holders”, this discussion is applicable only to a U.S. holder that acquires notes upon initial issuance and holds its notes as a capital asset for U.S. federal income tax purposes.
U.S. Tax Treatment. Pursuant to the terms of the notes, TD and you agree, in the absence of a statutory or regulatory change or an administrative determination or judicial ruling to the contrary, to characterize your notes as prepaid derivative contracts with respect to the Market Measure. Holders are urged to consult their tax advisors concerning the significance, and the potential impact, of the above characterization. If your notes are so treated, upon the taxable disposition of a note, you generally should recognize gain or loss in an amount equal to the difference between the amount realized on such taxable disposition and your tax basis in the note. Your tax basis in a note generally should equal your cost for the note. Such gain or loss should generally be long-term capital gain or loss if you have held your notes for more than one year (otherwise such gain or loss should be short-term capital gain or loss if held for one year or less). The deductibility of capital losses is subject to limitations.
Based on certain factual representations received from us, our special U.S. tax counsel, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, is of the opinion that it would be reasonable to treat your notes in the manner described above. However, because there is no authority that specifically addresses the tax treatment of the notes, it is possible that your notes could alternatively be treated for tax purposes as a single contingent payment debt instrument or pursuant to some other characterization, such that the timing and character of your income from the notes could differ materially and adversely from the treatment described above, as described further under “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences — Alternative Treatments” on page PS-45 of product supplement EQUITY ARN-1.
Notice 2008-2. In 2007, the IRS released a notice that may affect the taxation of holders of the notes. According to Notice 2008-2, the IRS and the Treasury are actively considering whether a holder of an instrument such as the notes should be required to accrue ordinary income on a current basis. It is not possible to determine what guidance they will ultimately issue, if any. It is possible, however, that under such guidance, holders of the notes will ultimately be required to accrue income currently and this could be applied on a retroactive basis. The IRS and the Treasury are also considering other relevant issues, including whether additional gain or loss from such instruments should be treated as ordinary or capital, whether non-U.S. holders of such instruments should be subject to withholding tax on any deemed income accruals, and whether the special “constructive ownership rules” of Section 1260 of the Code should be applied to such instruments. Both U.S. and non-U.S. holders are urged to consult their tax advisors concerning the significance, and the potential impact, of the above considerations on their investments in the notes.
Proposed Legislation. In 2007, legislation was introduced in Congress that, if it had been enacted, would have required holders of notes purchased after the bill was enacted to accrue interest income over the term of the notes despite the fact that there will be no interest payments over the term of the notes.
Furthermore, in 2013 the House Ways and Means Committee released in draft form certain proposed legislation relating to financial instruments. If it had been enacted, the effect of this legislation generally would have been to require instruments such as the notes to be marked to market on an annual basis with all gains and losses to be treated as ordinary, subject to certain exceptions.

Except to the extent otherwise required by law, TD intends to treat your notes for U.S. federal income tax purposes in accordance with the treatment described above and under “Material U.S. Federal Income Tax Consequences” of the product supplement EQUITY ARN-1, unless and until such time as the Treasury and the IRS determine that some other treatment is more appropriate.
Medicare Tax on Net Investment Income. U.S. holders that are individuals, estates or certain trusts are subject to an additional 3.8% tax on all or a portion of their “net investment income,” or “undistributed net investment income” in the case of an estate or trust, which may include any income or gain realized with respect to the notes, to the extent of their net investment income or undistributed net investment income (as the case may be) that, when added to their other modified adjusted gross income, exceeds $200,000 for an unmarried individual, $250,000 for a married taxpayer filing a joint return (or a surviving spouse), $125,000 for a married individual filing a separate return or the dollar amount at which the highest tax bracket begins for an estate or trust. The 3.8% Medicare tax is determined in a different manner than the regular income tax. U.S. holders should consult their tax advisors as to the consequences of the 3.8% Medicare tax.
Specified Foreign Financial Assets. Certain U.S. holders that own “specified foreign financial assets” in excess of an applicable threshold may be subject to reporting obligations with respect to such assets with their tax returns, especially if such assets are held outside the custody of a U.S. financial institution. Significant penalties can apply if a U.S. holder is required to disclose its notes and fails to do so.
Backup Withholding and Information Reporting. The proceeds received from a taxable disposition of the notes will be subject to information reporting unless you are an “exempt recipient” and may also be subject to backup withholding at the rate specified in the Code if you fail to provide certain identifying information (such as an accurate taxpayer number, if you are a U.S. holder) or meet certain other conditions.
Amounts withheld under the backup withholding rules are not additional taxes and may be refunded or credited against your U.S. federal income tax liability, provided the required information is furnished to the IRS.
Non-U.S. Holders. If you are a non-U.S. holder, subject to Section 871(m) of the Code and FATCA, discussed below, you should generally not be subject to generally applicable information reporting and backup withholding requirements with respect to payments on your notes if you comply with certain certification and identification requirements as to your non-U.S. status, including providing us (and/or the applicable withholding agent) a properly executed and fully completed applicable IRS Form W-8. Subject to Section 897 of the Code, and Section 871(m) of the Code, discussed herein, gain realized from the taxable disposition of a note generally will not be subject to U.S. tax unless (i) such gain is effectively connected with a trade or business conducted by you in the U.S., (ii) you are a non-resident alien individual and are present in the U.S. for 183 days or more during the taxable year of such taxable disposition and certain other conditions are satisfied or (iii) you have certain other present or former connections with the U.S.
Section 897. We will not attempt to ascertain whether the issuer of any stock included in the Index would be treated as a “United States real property holding corporation” (“USRPHC”) within the meaning of Section 897 of the Code. We also have not attempted to determine whether the notes should be treated as “United States real property interests” (“USRPI”) as defined in Section 897 of the Code. If any such entity and/or the notes were so treated, certain adverse U.S. federal income tax consequences could possibly apply, including subjecting any gain realized by a non-U.S. holder in respect of the notes upon a taxable disposition (including cash settlement) of the notes to U.S. federal income tax on a net basis, and the proceeds from such a taxable disposition to a withholding tax. Non-U.S. holders should consult their tax advisors regarding the potential treatment of any such entity as a USRPHC and/or the notes as USRPI.
Section 871(m). A 30% withholding tax (which may be reduced by an applicable income tax treaty) is imposed under Section 871(m) of the Code on certain “dividend equivalents” paid or deemed paid to a non-U.S. holder with respect to a “specified equity-linked instrument” that references one or more dividend-paying U.S. equity securities or indices containing U.S. equity securities. The withholding tax can apply even if the instrument does not provide for payments that reference dividends. Treasury regulations provide that the withholding tax applies to all dividend equivalents paid or deemed paid on specified equity-linked instruments that have a delta of one (“delta-one specified equity-linked instruments”) issued after 2016 and to all dividend equivalents paid or deemed paid on all other specified equity-linked instruments issued after 2018. However, the IRS has issued guidance that states that the Treasury and the IRS intend to amend the effective dates of the Treasury regulations to provide that withholding on dividend equivalents paid or deemed paid will not apply to specified equity-linked instruments that are not delta-one specified equity-linked instruments and are issued before January 1, 2023.
Based on our determination that the notes are not “delta-one” with respect to the Market Measure or any stock included in the Market Measure, our special U.S. tax counsel is of the opinion that the notes should not be delta-one specified equity-linked instruments and thus should not be subject to withholding on dividend equivalents. Our determination is not binding on the IRS, and the IRS may disagree with this determination. Furthermore, the application of Section 871(m) of the Code will depend on our determinations made upon issuance of the notes. If withholding is required, we will not make payments of any additional amounts.
Nevertheless, after issuance, it is possible that your notes could be deemed to be reissued for tax purposes upon the occurrence of certain events affecting the Market Measure, any stock included in the Market Measure or your notes, and following such occurrence your notes could be treated as delta-one specified equity-linked instruments that are subject to withholding on dividend equivalents. It is also possible that withholding tax or other tax under Section 871(m) of the Code could apply to the notes under these rules if a non-U.S. holder enters, or has entered, into certain other transactions in respect of the Market Measure or any stock included in the Market Measure or the notes. A non-U.S. holder that enters, or has entered, into other transactions in respect of the Market Measure or any stock included in the Market Measure or the notes should consult its tax advisor regarding the application of Section 871(m) of the Code to its notes in the context of its other transactions.

Because of the uncertainty regarding the application of the 30% withholding tax on dividend equivalents to the notes, you are urged to consult your tax advisor regarding the potential application of Section 871(m) of the Code and the 30% withholding tax to an investment in the notes.
U.S. Federal Estate Tax Treatment of Non-U.S. Holders. A note may be subject to U.S. federal estate tax if an individual non-U.S. holder holds the note at the time of his or her death. The gross estate of a non-U.S. holder domiciled outside the U.S. includes only property situated in the U.S. Individual non-U.S. holders should consult their tax advisors regarding the U.S. federal estate tax consequences of holding the notes at death.

FATCA. The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) was enacted on March 18, 2010, and imposes a 30% U.S. withholding tax on “withholdable payments” (i.e., certain U.S.-source payments, including interest (and original issue discount), dividends or other fixed or determinable annual or periodical gain, profits, and income, and on the gross proceeds from a disposition of property of a type which can produce U.S.-source interest or dividends) and “passthru payments” (i.e., certain payments attributable to withholdable payments) made to certain foreign financial institutions (and certain of their affiliates) unless the payee foreign financial institution agrees (or is required), among other things, to disclose the identity of any U.S. individual with an account at the institution (or the relevant affiliate) and to annually report certain information about such account. FATCA also requires withholding agents making withholdable payments to certain foreign entities that do not disclose the name, address, and taxpayer identification number of any substantial U.S. owners (or do not certify that they do not have any substantial U.S. owners) to withhold tax at a rate of 30%. Under certain circumstances, a holder may be eligible for refunds or credits of such taxes.
Pursuant to final and temporary Treasury regulations and other IRS guidance, the withholding and reporting requirements under FATCA will generally apply to certain “withholdable payments”, will not apply to gross proceeds on a sale or disposition and will apply to certain foreign passthru payments only to the extent that such payments are made after the date that is two years after final regulations defining the term “foreign passthru payment” are published. If withholding is required, we (or the applicable paying agent) will not be required to pay additional amounts with respect to the amounts so withheld. Foreign financial institutions and non-financial foreign entities located in jurisdictions that have an intergovernmental agreement with the U.S. governing FATCA may be subject to different rules.
Investors should consult their own advisors about the application of FATCA, in particular if they may be classified as financial institutions (or if they hold their notes through a foreign entity) under the FATCA rules.
Both U.S. and non-U.S. holders should consult their tax advisors regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences of an investment in the notes, as well as any tax consequences arising under the laws of any state, local or non-U.S. taxing jurisdiction (including that of TD).
