Toronto-Dominion Bank's U.S. operations turned a profit during the quarter ended April 30, despite a sharp increase in credit losses that the Toronto company attributed to "continued weakness in the real estate markets and the recession in the U.S."

Toronto-Dominion's U.S. arm, which includes about 1,100 branches from New Jersey to Maine under the TD Bank and TD Banknorth brands, reported net income of $207 million in the latest quarter, down 4% from the prior quarter but 131% more than a year earlier, according to the company's fiscal second-quarter report released Thursday.
