Forward-Looking Statements This presentation contains estimates, predictions, opinions, projections and other "forward-looking statements" as that phrase is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements include, without limitation, references to the Company's predictions or expectations of future business or financial performance as well as its goals and objectives for future operations, financial and business trends, business prospects, and management's outlook or expectations for earnings, revenues, expenses, capital levels, liquidity levels, asset quality or other future financial or business performance, strategies or expectations. Such forward-looking statements are based on various assumptions (some of which may be beyond the Company's control) and are subject to risks and uncertainties (which change over time) and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those currently anticipated. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those related to difficult market conditions and unfavorable economic trends in the United States generally, and particularly in the market areas in which the Company operates and in which its loans are concentrated, including the effects of declines in housing markets, an increase in unemployment levels and slowdowns in economic growth; the Company's level of nonperforming assets and the costs associated with resolving any problem loans including litigation and other costs; changes in market interest rates may increase funding costs and reduce earning asset yields thus reducing margin; the impact of changes in interest rates and the credit quality and strength of underlying collateral and the effect of such changes on the market value of the Company's investment securities portfolio; the credit risk associated with the substantial amount of commercial real estate, construction and land development, and commercial and industrial loans in our loan portfolio; the extensive federal and state regulation, supervision and examination governing almost every aspect of the Company's operations including changes in regulations affecting financial institutions, including the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the rules and regulations being issued in accordance with this statute and potential expenses associated with complying with such regulations; possible additional loan losses and impairment of the collectability of loans; the Company's ability to comply with applicable capital and liquidity requirements (including the finalized Basel III capital standards), including our ability to generate liquidity internally or raise capital on favorable terms; possible changes in trade, monetary and fiscal policies, laws and regulations and other activities of governments, agencies, and similar organizations; any impairment of the Company's goodwill or other intangible assets; failure of the financial and operational controls of the Company's Cash Connect® division; conditions in the financial markets that may limit the Company's access to additional funding to meet its liquidity needs; the success of the Company's growth plans, including the successful integration of past and future acquisitions; negative perceptions or publicity with respect to the Company's trust and wealth management business; system failure or cybersecurity breaches of the Company's network security; the Company's ability to recruit and retain key employees; the effects of problems encountered by other financial institutions that adversely affect the Company or the banking industry generally; the effects of weather and natural disasters such as floods, droughts, wind, tornadoes and hurricanes as well as effects from geopolitical instability and manmade disasters including terrorist attacks; possible changes in the speed of loan prepayments by the Company's customers and loan origination or sales volumes; possible acceleration of prepayments of mortgage-backed securities due to low interest rates, and the related acceleration of premium amortization on prepayments on mortgage-backed securities due to low interest rates; regulatory limits on the Company's ability to receive dividends from its subsidiaries and pay dividends to its stockholders; the effects of any reputational, credit, interest rate, market, operational, legal, liquidity, regulatory and compliance risk resulting from developments related to any of the risks discussed above; and the costs associated with resolving any problem loans, litigation and other risks and uncertainties, discussed in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 and other documents filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time. Forward-looking statements are as of the date they are made, and the Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time by or on behalf of the Company.


 
Non-GAAP Information This presentation contains financial information and performance measures determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). The Company’s management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide a greater understanding of ongoing operations, enhance comparability of results of operations with prior periods and show the effects of significant gains and charges in the periods presented. The Company’s management believes that investors may use these non-GAAP measures to analyze the Company’s financial performance without the impact of unusual items or events that may obscure trends in the Company’s underlying performance. This non-GAAP data should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and is not a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP to their comparable GAAP measures, see Appendix 3. The following are the non-GAAP measures used in this presentation:  Core net income is a non-GAAP measure that adjusts net income determined in accordance with GAAP to exclude the impact of securities gains (losses), corporate development expenses, debt extinguishment costs, and other unusual items  Core noninterest income, also called core fee income, is a non-GAAP measure that adjusts noninterest income as determined in accordance with GAAP to exclude the impact of securities gains (losses)  Core earnings per share (EPS) is a non-GAAP measure that divides (i) core net income by (ii) weighted average shares of common stock outstanding for the applicable period  Core net revenue is a non-GAAP measure that is determined by adding core net interest income plus core noninterest income  Core noninterest expense is a non-GAAP measure that adjusts noninterest expense as determined in accordance with GAAP to exclude corporate development expenses, debt extinguishment costs, fraud loss and WSFS Foundation Contributions.  Core efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP measure that is determined by dividing core noninterest expense by the sum of core interest income and core noninterest income  Core fee income to total revenue is a non-GAAP measure that divides (i) core non interest income by (ii) (tax equivalent) core net interest income and core noninterest income  Core return on assets (ROA) is a non-GAAP measure that divides (i) core net income by (ii) average assets for the applicable period  Core and Sustainable ROA is a non-GAAP measure that divides (i) net income determined in accordance with GAAP and adjusting it by taking core net income and normalizing for long-term credit costs, non-recurring accretion from purchased credit impaired loans (“PCI”), and a normal tax rate by (ii) average assets for the applicable period  Tangible common equity is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as total average stockholders’ equity less goodwill, other intangible assets and preferred stock  Return on average tangible common equity (ROTCE) is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as net income allocable to common stockholders divided by tangible common equity 5

2017 Highlights


 
2017 Financial Performance 8 (1) These are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered along with results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and not as a substitute for GAAP results. See Appendix 3 for a reconciliation to GAAP financial information. (2) Core and Sustainable ROA is a non-GAAP measure that divides (i) net income determined in accordance with GAAP and adjusting it by taking core net income and normalizing for long-term credit costs, non-recurring accretion from purchased credit impaired loans (“PCI”), and a normal tax rate by (ii) average assets. See Appendix 3 for GAAP reconciliation 2017 Expectations 2017 Core(1) Results Mid-to-high single digit loan growth +7% Demonstrates our ability to gain market share organically and fund our loan growth via customer generated deposits Mid-to-high single digit customer deposit growth +9% NIM in the mid-3.90's 3.95% An increase of 7 basis points from the prior full year Total credit costs between $12 – $14 million for the year $12.6M Around 20bps of assets 20%+ fee income growth 19% 12 percentage points from organic growth Efficiency ratio around 60% 60.1% Well managed and consistent with expectations 4Q17 Core & Sustainable ROA(2) of 1.31% Achieved Strategic Plan goal of 1.30% by 4Q18 a full year ahead of schedule Key Core(1) Performance Metrics – Full Year 2017 ROA 1.21% ROTCE 15.8% EPS $2.56


 
2018 Outlook


 
2018 Outlook(1) 10 • Mid-to high-single-digit loan and core deposit growth • Net interest margin in the 3.90%s • Assumes one rate increase in June 2018 • The impact of any additional rate increases and the magnitude and lag of rising deposit betas will likely determine our ability to get to the upper end of this range for the full year • Total credit costs (provision, loan workout expenses, OREO expenses, and other credit reserves) between $13 – $15 million for the year or approximately 20bps of assets. Credit costs can be uneven quarter to quarter • Low double-digit non-interest income growth • Assumes no additional fee-based acquisitions • Efficiency ratio slightly under 60% • Effective tax rate of approximately 23%. This tax rate may fluctuate quarter to quarter due to equity exercise activity and other factors (1) These are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered along with results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and not as a substitute for GAAP results. See Appendix 3 for a reconciliation to GAAP financial information.
