Item 2.05  Costs Associated With Exit or Disposal Activities.


On December 6, 2013, in connection with the Company’s ongoing efforts to pursue efficiencies in its operations, TCF National Bank (the “Bank”), the wholly-owned subsidiary of TCF Financial Corporation (the “Company”), approved the consolidation of 37 branches of the Bank with other nearby branches of the Bank. The branches are expected to be fully transitioned by the end of March 2014, subject to applicable regulatory requirements.


The estimated total pre-tax charges to be incurred in connection with these branch closures is expected to be between $7.4 and $7.8 million, consisting primarily of:


·                                         Between $4.6 and $4.8 million related to cash payments for contract termination and other expenses related to vacating the leased premises;


·                                         Between $2.3 and $2.4 million related to non-cash impairments of leasehold improvements and other equipment and other net costs; and


·                                         Between $0.5 and $0.6 million related to cash costs associated with impacted employees.


No additional material charges or future cash expenditures related to this consolidation are expected at this time. The Company expects the ongoing benefit of the branch consolidation will exceed the pre-tax charges set forth above, together with the estimated financial impact of related ongoing account attrition, over a period of approximately one year.


A copy of the press release issued by the Company is included as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

TCF National Bank Announces Realignment of Retail Banking Resources to
Support Strategic Growth Initiatives



·                 TCF to consolidate 37 branches in the greater Chicago area and its downtown Minneapolis branch located at 801 Marquette Ave. into other nearby locations

·                 Bank to add 52 new ATM machines at Chicago Transit Authority ‘L’ stations


WAYZATA, Minn. –  Dec. 11, 2013 – TCF National Bank (“TCF Bank”), the principal subsidiary of TCF Financial Corporation (“TCF”) (NYSE: TCB), today announced a realignment of retail banking resources to support its strategic growth initiatives, including the consolidation of 37 branch locations located inside Jewel-Osco stores in the Chicago area as well as its branch located at 801 Marquette Ave. in downtown Minneapolis. These branches will be fully transitioned by the end of March 2014. These changes follow a comprehensive review of TCF’s branch portfolio to determine how best to deploy its resources while supporting further investments in its online and mobile banking platforms, new products and services, and expanded ATM locations. These changes will result in TCF incurring a one-time pre-tax charge to earnings of approximately $7.6 million in the Corporation’s fiscal 2013 fourth quarter earnings.


“TCF continues to focus on enhancing the banking experience for our customers by delivering products and services that meet the needs of their everyday life,” said Thomas F. Jasper, Vice Chairman, Funding, Operations and Finance for TCF Bank. “As we make investments in these





areas, we are deploying resources in places that benefit all of TCF’s customers. We determined our customer base at these branches could be served by other nearby TCF locations, enabling us to redirect resources to fund our growth initiatives. We are working aggressively to minimize the impact of these changes on our customers and we expect to retain many of the employees impacted by the consolidations after March 2014.”


TCF will continue be the primary banking partner for Jewel-Osco, maintaining 118 branch locations in other grocery stores throughout the Chicago area. TCF supports Jewel’s growth strategy and will continue to partner on ways that benefit our mutual customers.


“Our partnership has enabled both TCF and Jewel to grow in the Chicago market over the past 16 years, delivering convenient services that make the Jewel-Osco stores a primary destination for consumers,” added Jasper. “As we prepare to introduce new and expanded product offerings in the coming months, we look forward to creating new motivations for consumers to visit TCF branches inside one of the 118 Jewel-Osco stores.”


As an example of TCF’s broader commitment to enhancing the customer experience, TCF also announced the expansion of its ATM network in the Chicago area with the addition of 52 new machines that will be located at Chicago Transit Authority ‘L’ train stations throughout the city. Following these additions, TCF will have approximately 156 branch locations and more than 270 ATMs throughout the Chicago area. Adding additional ATM machines in locations that are convenient for TCF’s customers reinforces the bank’s commitment to tailoring its banking offerings to fit their lifestyle and schedule.
