Commission File No.: 0-49992
This filing relates to the proposed transactions pursuant to the terms of that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of January 8, 2009 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among TD AMERITRADE Holding Corporation (“TD Ameritrade”), Tango Acquisition Corporation One (“Merger Sub One”), a wholly owned subsidiary of TD Ameritrade, Tango Acquisition Corporation Two (“Merger Sub Two”), a wholly owned subsidiary of TD Ameritrade, and thinkorswim Group, Inc. (“thinkorswim”).
January 8, 2009
Dear thinkorswim client,
We, at TD AMERITRADE, are very excited about the proposed acquisition and have included this letter in your email from thinkorswim Inc. to introduce ourselves. The combination of these two innovative firms will create what we believe will be the leading online trading and investor education firm in the industry.
At this point, there’s nothing you’ll need to do differently. The proposed acquisition of thinkorswim Group Inc. will require customary approvals and this will take some time — about six months. The companies will remain independent and will operate separately until such approvals are obtained and the acquisition is closed.
Please be assured, there will be no immediate impact on your thinkorswim Inc. account or how you trade, and you will still have access to the outstanding service you’ve come to expect from thinkorswim Inc. In addition, Scott Sheridan and Tom Sosnoff will continue to lead thinkorswim Inc. through the close of the acquisition, and will then join the TD AMERITRADE team.
What you can expect after the acquisition closes
After the acquisition closes, we’ll spend several months bringing the strengths of both companies together. Some of the features you’ll gain access to with TD AMERITRADE include:
    24/7 client service (including weekends and holidays)
    A full suite of independent research and investment tools
    A nationwide network of branches with licensed investment consultants
    Valuable portfolio planning services
    Access to an expanded range of investment products including mutual funds and bonds
    Powerful web-based technology for a more comprehensive browser-based trading platform
    Backtesting and program trading capabilities
Who to contact with your questions
We know you may have some additional questions, and we want to make sure you get answers. First and foremost, nothing will change at this point and there is no action required of you at this time. If you have questions, please contact thinkorswim Support at 866-839-1100 from Monday through Thursday from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. CT and from 6:00 a.m. CT to 5:00 p.m. CT on Fridays. Or you can send an email to help@thinkorswim.com.
We want you to know that we are committed to ensuring that upon completion of this acquisition you’ll continue to receive the best that both firms have to offer.
