Any portion of the special dividend in excess of each holder's pro rata share of TD AMERITRADE's earnings and profits will be treated first as a tax-free return of capital up to each holder's basis in its shares of TD AMERITRADE common stock, with any remainder treated as a capital gain.

Right. If you purchased the stock for less than $4/share, you'd recognize some gain.
