The unit has assets of roughly 1.5 billion Canadian dollars ($1.18 billion) and over 120 employees.
TD Bank expects the purchase to add scale to its existing Canadian equipment financing business and gain share in some of its big markets. The deal is expected to close in the first half of the year.
David Marks, head of Wells Fargo Commercial Capital, issued a statement saying, “This group of talented Canada-based employees and their equipment finance customers will benefit from TD’s strong franchise and allow us to focus our efforts on our U.S. equipment finance capabilities while continuing to serve our asset-based lending and distribution finance customers in Canada.”
