TD Ameritrade In No Hurry To Rename Scottrade Center After Purchase
TD Ameritrade yesterday closed on its $4B purchase of Scottrade Financial Services, and the deal will bring an "eventual end to the Scottrade name," including at the Blues' home arena in St. Louis. TD Ameritrade in October "initially said the arena's name will be changed to TD Ameritrade Center," as the "contract for the naming rights runs" through '21. But TD Ameritrade President & CEO Tim Hockey said that the company is "no longer pursuing renaming the center." He added that "no changes to the arena's name are expected" before '18 (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 9/19).
