Toronto-Dominion Bank on Monday announced that it's agreed to buy Memphis-based First Horizon for $13.4 billion in cash.

Why it matters: This would make TD the sixth largest U.S. bank in terms of assets, and significantly expands its footprint into the Southeast.

Details: TD will pay $25 per share for First Horizon, representing a 37% premium over Friday's closing share price, with an expected close by late November.

The bottom line: TD has a long history of growth via acquisition, but this is easily its largest deal to date.
