                          WSFS FINANCIAL CORPORATION
                NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
                   FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 1998
                                  (UNAUDITED)


1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

    WSFS Financial Corporation (the Corporation) is the parent of Wilmington
Savings Fund Society, FSB (the Bank or WSFS). The consolidated financial
statements for the three months ended March 31, 1998 include the accounts of
the parent company, the Bank and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, WSFS Credit
Corporation, 838 Investment Group, Inc., Community Credit Corporation and Star
States Development Company.

    The consolidated statement of condition as of March 31, 1998, the
consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 1998
and 1997 and the consolidated statement of cash flows for the three months
ended March 31, 1998 and 1997 are unaudited and include all adjustments solely
of a normal recurring nature which management believes are necessary for a
fair presentation. All significant intercompany transactions are eliminated in
consolidation. Certain reclassifications have been made to prior period's
financial statements to conform them to the March 31, 1998 presentation. The
results of operations for the three month period ending March 31, 1998 are not
necessarily indicative of the expected results for the full year ending
December 31, 1998. The accompanying unaudited financial statements should be
read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto
included in the Corporation's 1997 Annual Report.

2.  EARNINGS PER SHARE

    In February 1997, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued
Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 128, "Earnings per
Share," which is required to be adopted in both interim and annual financial
statements for periods ending after December 15, 1997. Accordingly, the
Corporation has changed its methodology for computing earnings per share and
restated all prior period amounts. SFAS No. 128 replaced "primary" and "fully"
diluted earnings per share with "basic" and "diluted" earnings per share.
Under the new requirements for calculating earnings per share, the dilutive
effect of stock options will be excluded from basic earnings per share but
included in the computation of diluted earnings per share.

    The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted
earnings per share (in thousands, except per share data):

                          WSFS FINANCIAL CORPORATION
 
              MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL
                      CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


GENERAL

    WSFS Financial Corporation (the Corporation) is a savings and loan holding
company headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware. Substantially, all of the
Corporation's assets are held by its subsidiary, Wilmington Savings Fund
Society, FSB (the Bank or WSFS), the largest thrift institution headquartered
in Delaware and among the four largest financial institutions in the state on
the basis of total deposits acquired in-market. The Corporation's market area
is the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States which is characterized by a
diversified manufacturing and service economy. The banking operations of WSFS
are presently conducted from 17 retail banking offices located in Northern
Delaware and Southeastern Pennsylvania. The Bank provides residential real
estate, commercial real estate, commercial and consumer lending services and
funds these activities primarily by attracting retail deposits. Deposits are
insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

    Additional subsidiaries of the Bank include WSFS Credit Corporation (WCC),
which is engaged primarily in indirect motor vehicle leasing and financing,
and 838 Investment Group, Inc. which markets various insurance products and
securities through the Bank's branch system; and Community Credit Corporation
(CCC) specializes in consumer loans secured by first and second mortgages. An
additional subsidiary, Star States Development Company (SSDC) is currently
inactive with the exception of one remaining parcel of land which is expected
to be sold in the second quarter of 1998.


FINANCIAL CONDITION, CAPITAL RESOURCES AND LIQUIDITY

    Financial Condition

    Total assets increased $19.3 million during the first three months of
1998. Asset growth included increases of $58.0 million in mortgage-backed
securities and $41.3 million in federal funds sold and securities purchased
under agreements to resell. The increase in mortgage-backed securities reflect
the purchase of $69.0 million in collateralized mortgage obligations and $30.4
million in GNMA pass through securities, offset in part by principal
repayments. Asset growth was partially offset by decreases of $36.7 million in
investment securities and $35.5 million in net loans. The decline in
investment securities included the sale of $20.0 million in U.S. Treasury
notes, the maturity of $10.0 million in the notes issued by the Student Loan
Marketing Association and the net reduction of $5.0 million in notes issued by
the Federal Home Loan Bank. The decline in loans reflects a $21.3 million
decrease in commercial mortgages and the sale of $10.5 million in residential
mortgages.

    Total liabilities increased $15.0 million between December 31, 1997 and
March 31, 1998. During the first quarter, the Corporation added $10.0 million
in FHLB advances. These borrowings were used to fund asset growth and replace
$5.8 million in reverse repurchase agreements that matured during the quarter.
In addition, deposits increased $6.8 million to $773.8 million at March 31,
1998. Interest credited to deposits totaled $3.5 million for a net deposit
growth of $3.3 million.

    Capital Resources

    Stockholders' equity increased $4.3 million between December 31, 1997 and
March 31, 1998. This increase reflects net income of $4.4 million for the
quarter partially offset by $183,000 decrease in the net unrealized gains on
securities available-for-sale. In addition, the Corporation reissued 4,500
shares of treasury stock to the Board of Directors as part of their annual
retainer. At March 31, 1998, the Corporation held in its treasury 2,158,109
shares of its common stock at a cost of $20.4 million.

</TABLE>


    Under Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) capital regulations, savings
institutions such as the Bank must maintain "tangible" capital equal to 1.5%
of adjusted total assets, "core" capital equal to 4.0% of adjusted total
assets and "total" or "risk-based" capital (a combination of core and
"supplementary" capital) equal to 8.0% of risk-weighted assets. In addition,
OTS regulations impose certain restrictions on savings associations that have
a total risk-based capital ratio that is less than 8.0%, a ratio of tier 1
capital to risk-weighted assets of less than 4.0% or a ratio of tier 1 capital
to adjusted total assets of less than 4.0% (or 3.0% if the institution is
rated Composite 1 under the OTS examination rating system). For purposes of
these regulations, tier 1 capital has the same definition as core capital. At
March 31, 1998 the Bank is classified as a "well capitalized" institution and
is in compliance with all regulatory capital requirements. Management
anticipates that the Bank will continue to be classified as well-capitalized.

    Liquidity

    The OTS requires institutions, such as the Bank, to maintain a 4.0%
minimum liquidity ratio of cash and qualified assets to net withdrawable
deposits and borrowings due within one year. At March 31, 1998, the Bank's
liquidity ratio was 8.9% compared to 10.2% at December 31, 1997. Additionally,
the Corporation is required to maintain a reserve of 100% of the aggregate
interest expense for 12 full calendar months on the $29.1 million of senior
notes. The interest reserve requirement on the senior notes at March 31, 1998
was approximately $3.2 million.

NONPERFORMING ASSETS

    The following table sets forth the Corporation's nonperforming assets,
restructured loans and past due loans at the dates indicated. Past due loans
are loans contractually past due 90 days or more as to principal or interest
payments but which remain on accrual status because they are considered well
secured and in the process of collection.

     Nonperforming assets decreased $267,000 between March 31, 1998 and
December 31,1997. This decrease resulted primarily from a $381,000 reduction
in nonaccruing commercial mortgages. An analysis of the change in the balance
of nonperforming assets is presented on the following page.

</TABLE>

     The timely identification of problem loans is a key element in the
Corporation's strategy to manage its loan portfolios. Timely identification
enables the Corporation to take appropriate action and, accordingly, minimize
losses. An asset review system which was established to monitor the asset
quality of the Corporation's loans and investments in real estate portfolios
facilitates the identification of problem assets. In general, this system
utilizes guidelines established by federal regulation; however, there can be
no assurance that the levels or the categories of problem loans and assets
established by the Bank are the same as those which would result from a
regulatory examination.

INTEREST RATE SENSITIVITY

     The matching of maturities or repricing periods of interest
rate-sensitive assets and liabilities to ensure a favorable interest rate
spread and mitigate exposure to fluctuations in interest rates is monitored by
the Corporation in conjunction with its asset/liability management strategies.
Interest rate-sensitive assets of the Corporation include cash flows that
relate to the principal of the operating lease portfolio, which are
interest-rate sensitive. Management regularly reviews interest-rate
sensitivity of the Corporation and adjusts sensitivity within acceptable
tolerance ranges established by management as needed. At March 31, 1998,
interest-bearing liabilities exceeded interest-earning assets that mature
within one year (interest-sensitivity gap) by $13.4 million. The Corporation's
interest-sensitive assets as a percentage of interest-sensitive liabilities
within the one-year window was 98.3% at March 31, 1998 compared to 99.6% at
December 31, 1997. Likewise, the one-year sensitive gap as a percentage of
total assets was a negative .87% as compared to a negative .18% at December
31, 1997. The change is the result of the Corporation's continuing effort to
effectively manage interest rate risk and ensure a favorable interest rate
spread.

COMPARISON FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 1998 AND 1997

     Results of Operations

     The Corporation reported net income of $4.4 million for the first three
months of 1998 compared to $4.1 million for the same quarter last year. Basic
and diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 1998 were $.36 and
$.35, respectively compared to $.32 for both basic and diluted earnings per
share for the same quarter last year. This improvement in earnings resulted
primarily from a 10% increase in net revenue (net interest income and other
income) and a reduction in the effective tax rate.

     Net interest income decreased $401,000 between the three months ended
March 31, 1998 and 1997. This decrease resulted from the growth in the
operating lease portfolio between comparable periods. The income from these
leases, which increased $1.1 million between periods, is reported in other
income and not interest income while the costs of funding these assets is
included in interest expense, therefore depressing the net interest margin.
The interest rate margin decreased between both periods as a result of
additional wholesale investment growth strategies in the first quarter of
1998, the growth in operating leases as well as the impact of a $35.5 million
loan to refinance an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) note of the Company,
on pre-tax income.

     The recent moderate changes in interest rates have not had, nor are
expected to have, a material impact on the Corporation's earnings or financial
position. In addition, a moderate increase or decrease in interest rates is
not expected to have a material affect on net interest income.

     The provision for loan losses increased by $268,000 between the three
months ended March 31, 1997 and 1998. The increase was due in part to
management's continuing review of the loan portfolio.

     Other Income

     Noninterest income grew $1.8 million, or 43%, between the three months
ended March 31, 1997 and 1998. This increase resulted primarily in from net
rental income on operating leases which increased $1.1 million between
comparable quarters. This increase reflects strong growth in the operating
lease portfolio.

     Other Expenses

     Noninterest expenses increased $1.0 million between the quarters ending
March 31, 1997 and 1998. This increase reflects the Corporations commitment to
invest in its profitable business lines and improve its technological
capabilities. These commitments include increasing the Bank's presence in
Southeastern Pennsylvania beginning in March 1998, expanding the Bank's ATM
network and introducing a new state of the art PC-based cash management
product for its business clients.

     The comparability between periods of certain expenses line items has been
affected by a five year strategic technology alliance entered into on March 1,
1997, between WSFS and ALLTEL, the company which has been managing WSFS data
processing for nine years. This agreement calls for ALLTEL to employ certain
on-site back office personnel, as well as manage deposit and loan operation
functions. As a result, certain costs, most of which previously would have
been classified as salaries, are now classified as data processing and
operating expenses. Consequently, data processing expenses and operating
expenses increased $457,000 between comparable periods.

     Management continues to review existing operations as well as other
income opportunities in order to enhance earnings. Accordingly, other income
and expenses may fluctuate during the year.

     Income Taxes

tax return and separate state income tax returns. Income taxes are accounted
for in accordance with SFAS No. 109 which requires the recording of deferred
income taxes for the tax consequences of "temporary differences". For the
first quarter of 1998 the Corporation recorded an income tax expense of $1.6
million compared to $1.8 million for the same period in 1997. The effective
tax rates for the first quarter of 1998 and 1997 were 26.0% and 31.0%,
respectively. Increased tax benefits from the acquisition and subsequent
merger of Providential Home Income Plan, Inc., a San Francisco, California
based reverse mortgage lender, into the Bank and the 50% interest income
exclusion of an ESOP loan made in the second quarter of 1997, contributed to
this reduction in effective rates between periods.

     The Corporation analyzes its projections of taxable income on an ongoing
basis and makes adjustments to its provision for income taxes accordingly.

tem 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

     Market risk is the risk of loss from adverse changes in market prices and
rates. The Company's market risk arises primarily from interest rate risk
inherent in its lending and deposit taking activities. To that end, management
actively monitors and manages its interest rate risk exposure. One measure,
required to be performed by OTS-regulated institutions, is the test specified
by OTS Thrift Bulletin No. 13, "Interest Rate Risk Management." This test
measures the impact on net interest income and on net portfolio value of an
immediate change in interest rates in 100 basis point increments. Net
portfolio value is defined as the net present value of assets, liabilities,
and off-balance sheet contracts. The chart below is the estimated impacts of
immediate changes in interest rates at the specified levels at March 31, 1998,
calculated in compliance with Thrift Bulletin No. 13:

(1) This column represents the percentage difference between estimated net
interest income for the succeeding 12 months in a stable interest rate
environment and net interest income as projected by the various rate scenarios.

(2) This column represents the percentage difference between estimated net
portfolio value of the Company in a stable interest rate environment and the net
portfolio value as projected in the various rate scenarios.

         The Company's primary objective in managing interest rate risk is to
minimize the adverse impact of changes in interest rates on the Company's net
interest income and capital, while structuring the Company's asset/liability
structure to obtain the maximum yield/cost spread on that structure. The
Company relies primarily on its asset/liability structure to control interest
rate risk.
