Epoch Announces Assets Under Management of $24.5 Billion



  Epoch Announces Assets Under Management of $24.5 Billion

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- January 4, 2013

Epoch Investment Partners, Inc., a leading investment manager and investment
adviser and the sole operating subsidiary of Epoch Holding Corporation
(“Epoch” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: EPHC), today announced that its assets
under management (“AUM”) were approximately $24.5 billion as of December 31,
2012, an increase of 1% from $24.2 billion as of September 30, 2012.

"Market appreciation outside the U.S. was the primary contributor to the rise
in assets under management last quarter,” stated William W. Priest, Chief
Executive Officer. "While ultra-low interest rates and asset purchases by the
world’s major central banks continued to push up valuation multiples, we think
future gains will be more dependent on an underlying improvement in business
fundamentals.”

As previously announced on December 6, 2012, Epoch Holding Corporation entered
into a merger agreement with The Toronto-Dominion Bank (“TD”) whereby Epoch
will become an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of TD. This transaction, which
is subject to the approval of Epoch's stockholders and satisfaction of other
customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the first half of 2013.
