GAAP results for 2Q 2019 include the full-quarter impact of our acquisition of Beneficial Bancorp, Inc. (Beneficial), which closed on March 1, 2019, and include $15.8 million, or approximately $0.22 per share, of restructuring and corporate development costs in 2Q 2019, compared with $0.5 million, or approximately $0.01 per share, in 2Q 2018. In addition, as further described in the Company’s Form 8-K dated July 8, 2019, two legacy WSFS Commercial and Industrial (“C&I”) loans, which were classified as nonperforming for an extended period of time, experienced significant credit events resulting in higher levels of provision for loan losses and concurrent charge-offs during the quarter. Net income in 2Q 2019 included $13.6 million of total pre-tax credit costs, or $0.19 per share, compared to $3.0 million pre-tax, or $0.07 per share, in 2Q 2018.

Highlights for 2Q 2019: 
Core ROA(1) was 1.57% compared to 1.67% for 2Q 2018.
Core earnings per share (EPS)(1) was $0.88 compared to $0.90 in 2Q 2018.
The net interest margin increased 58 bps from 2Q 2018 to 4.68%, primarily due to higher purchase-related accretion and improved positioning in the higher short-term interest rate environment over the last year, pricing discipline and loan growth.
Core net revenue(1) of $165.0 million increased $69.0 million, or 72% (annualized), from 2Q 2018, reflecting strong organic and acquisition growth, including a $62.2 million, or 102% (annualized), increase in core net interest income(1) and a $6.8 million, or 19% (annualized), increase in core fee income (noninterest income)(1).
Core noninterest expense(1) increased $34.6 million, or 60% (annualized), from 2Q 2018 compared to core net revenue growth of $69.0 million, or 72% (annualized), reflecting the start of strong economies of scale from the acquisition and disciplined cost management, resulted in a core efficiency ratio(1) of 55.7%.
C&I loan growth of $76.3 million, or 2% (9% annualized), compared to 1Q 2019, which included a robust $275.6 million of newly funded loans during the quarter.
During 2Q 2019, we completed the previously announced sale of five legacy Beneficial Bank retail banking offices in New Jersey, with approximately $177.9 million in deposits, to The Bank of Princeton at a premium of 7.37%, which was included in our purchase accounting for the Beneficial acquisition.
For additional information regarding our core results, net interest margin, and loan and deposit growth please refer to the 2Q 2019 Earnings Release Supplement available under the Investor Relations section of WSFS' website (www.wsfsbank.com).



(1) As used in this press release, core ROA, core EPS, core net revenue, core net interest income, core fee income (noninterest income), core noninterest expense, and core efficiency ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures exclude securities gains/losses, unrealized gains on equity investments, corporate development and restructuring charges, and a recovery of a fraud loss. For a reconciliation of these and other non-GAAP measures to their comparable GAAP measures, see pages 20 and 21 of this press release.

Notable items in the quarter:
WSFS recorded $15.8 million (pre-tax), or approximately $0.22 per share (after-tax), of restructuring and corporate development costs related to our acquisition of Beneficial, compared with $0.5 million, or approximately $0.01 per share, in 2Q 2018. The 2Q 2019 amount was consistent with our modeled expectations. These costs are excluded from core results.
WSFS recorded unrealized gains of $0.6 million (pre-tax), or approximately $0.01 per share (after-tax), related to our strategic partnership investment in Spring EQ, a locally based digital home equity lender, and $0.4 million (pre-tax), or approximately $0.01 per share related to our investment in Visa Class B shares. We did not record any realized or unrealized gains on these investments in 2Q 2018. Since our adoption of ASU 2016-01 in 1Q 2018, cumulative realized and unrealized gains on Visa Class B shares total $28.7 million. Both of these gains are excluded from core results.
CEO outlook and commentary
Rodger Levenson, President and CEO, said, “Our second quarter results were impacted by expected acquisition costs and two previously reported credit events. Excluding these acquisition costs, our second quarter results reflect strong fundamental performance and a positive start to our combination with Beneficial. Compared to 2Q 2018, the quarter included both organic and acquisition related growth in net interest income, net interest margin, and fee income. Our Wealth Management, Cash Connect, and mortgage banking fee-based businesses all recorded year-over-year organic growth. Expenses continue to be well managed, resulting in a lower core efficiency ratio when compared to the same period last year and demonstrate our ability to accelerate cost savings from the Beneficial combination. Also, C&I loans grew 9% (annualized) during the quarter despite significant pay-offs due primarily to the current interest rate environment. Our positive results during the first half of 2019 position us well to deliver on our full-year strategic goals, including a core ROA of greater than 1.50% for 2019.
“In addition, we are poised and prepared to complete our branding and systems conversion, the final major milestone of our integration effort, on August 26, 2019. We look forward to executing on the future growth opportunities from our combination as the largest, full-service, full-product locally headquartered bank in the greater Delaware Valley.”

Second Quarter 2019 Discussion of Financial Results
Net interest margin growth from purchase accretion and balance sheet positioning and optimization
Net interest income in 2Q 2019 was $123.2 million, an increase of $62.2 million, or 102% (annualized), compared to 2Q 2018. Net interest margin for 2Q 2019 was a strong 4.68%, an increase of 58 bps from 4.10% for 2Q 2018. The year-over-year increase included approximately 29 bps of higher modeled purchase-related accretion, approximately 16 bps from incremental accretion due to pay-offs during the quarter, and 13 bps resulting from the successful balance sheet optimization and improved positioning in the higher short-term interest rate environment over the last year, which was partially offset by expected margin compression due to Beneficial's lower-margin balance sheet.
Net interest income increased $39.9 million, or 48% (not annualized), from 1Q 2019 due to both acquisition and organic growth. Net interest margin increased 38 bps from 4.30% in 1Q 2019. The quarter-over-quarter increase included approximately 19 bps from higher accretion due to pay-offs during the quarter, 14 bps of higher normal purchase-related accretion from the full quarter impact of the Beneficial combination, and 5 bps resulting from the successful balance sheet optimization and repositioning, which was partially offset by expected margin compression due to a full quarter impact of Beneficial's lower-margin balance sheet.
Loans reflect acquisition and organic increases in C&I and consumer lending, partially offset by run-off portfolios

At June 30, 2019, WSFS’ net loan portfolio decreased $70.1 million when compared with March 31, 2019. The decrease included a $46.6 million decline in residential mortgages (held for investment) and in the auto and student loan portfolios acquired from Beneficial. We continue to execute our strategy of selling most newly originated residential mortgages in the secondary market, and allowing the acquired auto and student loans portfolios to run off. Excluding these portfolios, net loans decreased $23.5 million during the quarter. Commercial real estate loans (CRE) decreased $108.2 million, driven by approximately $172 million of loan pay-downs and pay-offs during the quarter, which were elevated primarily as a result of the current interest rate and highly competitive pricing environments. The $172 million of pay-downs and pay-offs included approximately $118 million from the acquired Beneficial portfolio, which were lower-yielding commercial mortgages or non-relationship participation loans. Partially offsetting this decrease, C&I loans increased $76.3 million, or 2% (9% annualized) in 2Q 2019 from organic growth, which included a robust $275.6 million of newly funded loans during the quarter.
Compared to June 30, 2018, net loans increased $3.7 billion, which includes $3.7 billion of net loans acquired from Beneficial on March 1, 2019. Excluding the acquired loans from Beneficial and a $72.7 million intentional decline in the run-off portfolios described above, year-over year growth of $85.9 million resulted from strong consumer loan growth of $101.3 million, or 16% (annualized), driven by second-lien home equity installment loans originated through our partnership with Spring EQ and student loans though our partnership with LendKey. Partially offsetting this consumer loan growth was an approximate $46.6 million decrease in the legacy Beneficial commercial portfolio due to the elevated pay-down and pay-off activity mentioned above.
Credit quality metrics remain stable overall, despite impact of two larger charge-offs
Credit quality metrics during 2Q 2019 reflect the impact of two legacy WSFS C&I relationships, further described in the Company’s Form 8-K dated July 8, 2019, which were classified as nonperforming for an extended period of time. Leading 2Q 2019 credit metrics demonstrate consistent trends in both the originated and acquired loan portfolios.

Total problem assets, which includes all criticized, classified, and nonperforming loans as well as other real estate owned (OREO), were $219.7 million at June 30, 2019, an improvement from $248.3 million at March 31, 2019. Total problem assets to total Tier 1 capital plus ALLL was 16.73% at June 30, 2019, compared to 20.04% at March 31, 2019. The Company’s ratio of classified assets to total Tier 1 capital plus ALLL was 13.73% at June 30, 2019, compared to 14.56% at March 31, 2019.
Total delinquencies, which include nonperforming delinquencies, were $67.5 million at June 30, 2019, or 0.78% of gross loans, compared to $71.9 million, or 0.83% of gross loans at March 31, 2019. Excluding nonperforming delinquencies, performing loan delinquencies were only 0.54% of gross loans at June 30, 2019, compared to 0.65% at March 31, 2019. Included in total delinquencies were $22.3 million of delinquent, but still accruing, U.S. government-guaranteed student loans that carry little risk of credit loss.
Total nonperforming assets increased $6.3 million, or 13% (not annualized), to $55.5 million at June 30, 2019, as compared to $49.3 million at March 31, 2019. The nonperforming assets to total assets ratio increased to 0.46% at June 30, 2019 from 0.40% at March 31, 2019. Nonperforming assets increased despite the two previously disclosed charge-offs, mainly due to one $20.2 million C&I relationship that was also moved to nonperforming status during the quarter.
Net charge-offs for 2Q 2019 were $13.2 million, or 0.61% (annualized), of average gross loans, an increase from $0.9 million, or 0.06% (annualized), for 1Q 2019, and $2.3 million, or 0.19% (annualized), during 2Q 2018. 2Q 2019 net charge-offs were primarily related to the two previously disclosed commercial relationships resulting in $11.5 million of charge-offs. Total credit costs (provision for loan losses, loan workout expenses, OREO expenses and other credit costs), which can be uneven, were $13.6 million in 2Q 2019, $7.9 million in 1Q 2019 and $3.0 million in 2Q 2018. The increase in 2Q 2019 was primarily due to additional reserves and concurrent charge-offs from the two specific credits discussed above.
The ratio of the ALLL to total gross loans was 0.53% at June 30, 2019, consistent with 0.53% at March 31, 2019. Excluding the balances for acquired loans (which are marked to market at acquisition), the ALLL to total gross loans ratio would have been 0.99% at June 30, 2019 compared with 1.05% at March 31, 2019. The ALLL was 121% of nonaccruing loans at June 30, 2019 compared to 145% at March 31, 2019 and 113% at June 30, 2018.

Total customer funding was $9.3 billion at June 30, 2019, an $86.5 million, or 1% (not annualized) decrease from March 31, 2019. Excluding the $177.9 million of customer funding balances included in the sale of the five legacy Beneficial branches, customer funding increased $91.4 million, or 1% (4% annualized).
Customer funding increased $4.2 billion compared to June 30, 2018. Excluding the $3.8 billion of customer funding acquired from Beneficial, customer funding increased $389.2 million, or 8% (annualized). This included a core deposit increase of $382.4 million, or 9% (annualized), over the prior year, with $277.7 million of that attributable to no- and low-cost checking deposit accounts.
Core deposits were 84% of total customer deposits, and no- and low-cost checking deposit accounts represented a robust 46% of total customer deposits at June 30, 2019. These core deposits predominantly represent longer-term, less price-sensitive customer relationships. The ratio of loans to customer deposits was 93% at June 30, 2019.
Core fee income reflects diversification and strong growth over the prior year
Core fee income (noninterest income) increased by $6.8 million, or 19% (annualized), to $41.8 million compared to 2Q 2018. Excluding $4.3 million of traditional banking-related fee income related to Beneficial, core fee income increased by $2.5 million, or 7% (annualized), compared to the prior year reflecting growth across most of our businesses. The increase includes $1.2 million from our mortgage banking business, $1.0 million from our Cash Connect® division, and $0.3 million from our Wealth Management and traditional banking businesses.

When compared to 1Q 2019, core fee income increased $4.5 million, or 12% (not annualized). Excluding the impact of the Beneficial combination as discussed above, core fee income increased $1.4 million, or 4% (not annualized). The increase compared to the prior quarter included $1.0 million from our Cash Connect® division, $0.8 million from our mortgage banking business, and $0.6 million from all other fees, partially offset by a $1.0 million decrease from Wealth Management, primarily resulting from the functional sale of certain Wealth Management accounts in 1Q 2019.
For 2Q 2019, core fee income was 25.3% of core net revenue, compared to 36.3% for 2Q 2018, and was diversified among various sources, including traditional banking, mortgage banking, trust and wealth management and cash logistics services (Cash Connect®). The year-over-year percentage decline primarily reflects the Beneficial combination, which had lower fee income.
Noninterest expenses reflect growth in revenue and effective cost management
Our core efficiency ratio was 55.7% in 2Q 2019, compared to 55.1% in 1Q 2019, and 59.6% in 2Q 2018. Core noninterest expense for 2Q 2019 was $92.0 million, an increase of $34.6 million, or 60% (annualized), from $57.4 million in 2Q 2018, primarily due to higher ongoing operating costs due to our combination with Beneficial. Additionally, non-Beneficial related increases included higher compensation and benefit costs of approximately $3.5 million, and increased Cash Connect® expenses of $1.0 million offset by higher revenue.
When compared to 1Q 2019, core noninterest expense increased $25.4 million, or 38% (not annualized). The year-over-year increase primarily reflects the full quarter impact of additional ongoing costs from the Beneficial combination, an approximate $2.5 million increase in non-Beneficial related incentive compensation due to a $1.1 million accrual reversal recorded in 1Q 2019, as well as $1.4 million of higher 2Q 2019 accruals due to strong year-to-date performance against full year 2019 targets, and overall franchise growth.

Income taxes
We recorded a $10.1 million income tax provision in 2Q 2019, compared to provisions of $6.3 million in 1Q 2019 and $6.9 million in 2Q 2018.
The effective tax rate was 21.9% in 2Q 2019, 32.6% in 1Q 2019, and 19.4% in 2Q 2018. The lower tax rate in 2Q 2019 compared to 1Q 2019 resulted primarily from lower non-deductible costs related to our combination with Beneficial and higher benefits realized from stock-based compensation activity in 2Q 2019. The higher tax rate compared to 2Q 2018 is primarily due to lower benefits realized from stock-based compensation activity and higher state income taxes resulting from our combination with Beneficial in 2Q 2019.

Selected Business Segments (included in previous results):
Wealth Management segment revenue grows 6% over the prior year
The Wealth Management segment provides a broad array of planning and advisory services, investment management, trust services, and credit and deposit products to individual, corporate, and institutional clients through multiple integrated businesses. Combined, these businesses had $19.7 billion in assets under management (AUM) and assets under administration (AUA) as of June 30, 2019.  
Total Wealth Management revenue (net interest income, fiduciary fees and other fee income) was $15.0 million for 2Q 2019, an increase of $0.8 million, or 6% (annualized), compared to 2Q 2018, primarily due to continued strength in our institutional trust services business which generated 14% revenue growth over the same period of 2018. Our AUM businesses also generated higher year-over-year investment advisory fees, as they benefited from the rebound in market valuations and positive net inflows of $42 million since Q2 2018. Compared to 1Q 2019, revenue declined $0.9 million, or 5% (not annualized), primarily due to the previously reported functional sale of certain wealth accounts. Excluding the 1Q 2019 sale, 2Q 2019 revenue increased 5% on an annualized basis over Q1 2019.
Our trust and private banking businesses generated $20 million of no- and low-cost core deposit balances as of June 30, 2019, an increase of 61% (annualized) from Q2 2018 and 3% (not annualized) from Q1 2019 demonstrating the value added through our client relationships.
Total noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations and provision for loan losses) was $9.0 million in 2Q 2019, a decrease of $0.2 million compared to 2Q 2018 and an increase of $0.3 million compared to 1Q 2019. Professional fees related to tax preparation and legal activities vary from quarter to quarter impacting our results. Wealth Management reported pre-tax income in 2Q 2019 was $6.1 million compared to $7.2 million in 1Q 2019 and $5.1 million in 2Q 2018.
As we continue to further execute on future growth opportunities resulting from the Beneficial acquisition, Wealth Management has hired four wealth advisors and three private bankers since the beginning of the year to support our expansion into the Pennsylvania and New Jersey markets and we have a strong pipeline of new business activity.

Cash Connect® pre-tax income increases 21% over same quarter in 2018
Cash Connect® is a premier provider of ATM vault cash, smart safe and cash logistics services in the United States. Cash Connect® services approximately 28,900 non-bank ATMs and retail safes nationwide supplying or servicing over $1.3 billion in cash at June 30, 2019 and provides other fee-based services. Cash Connect® also operates 442 ATMs for WSFS Bank, which is one of the largest branded ATM networks in our market.
Our Cash Connect® division recorded $11.3 million of net revenue (fee income less funding costs) in 2Q 2019, an increase of $1.3 million, or 13% (annualized), from 2Q 2018, primarily due to continued growth in the bailment, cash management and smart safe lines of business, partially offset by higher funding costs. Compared to 1Q 2019, net revenue increased $1.3 million, or 13% (not annualized), primarily due to growth in cash management and smart safe lines of business, as well as seasonality.
Noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations of expense) was $9.6 million in 2Q 2019, an increase of $1.0 million compared to 2Q 2018 and an increase of $1.0 million compared to 1Q 2019. The increases in expenses were primarily due to higher operating costs associated with growth and higher funding costs. Cash Connect® reported pre-tax income of $1.8 million for 2Q 2019, which was an increase of $0.3 million, or 21% (annualized) compared to 2Q 2018 and an increase of $0.3 million, or 21% (not annualized) compared to 1Q 2019 due to organic growth.
Cash Connect® remains strategically focused on expanding both ATM and smart safe managed services to offset margin compression and a changing rate environment and to improve overall returns. 2Q 2019 results demonstrate progress in driving efficiencies in operations to optimize both cost of funds and mix of WSFS’ cash and other sources of cash. These efforts have resulted in 2Q 2019 ROA of 1.48%, an improvement from 1.06% in 1Q 2019 and 0.85% in 2Q 2018. Cash Connect® continues to experience strong growth in the strategic Remote Cash Capture (RCC- smart safe, recycler and kiosk) space with over 2,700 devices under service. Our pipeline is experiencing significant growth as we continue to add new channel partners with strong networks of national retail relationships.

Capital management
WSFS’ total stockholders’ equity increased $46.7 million, or 3% (not annualized) during 2Q 2019, primarily due to the effect of market-value changes on available-for-sale securities and the effect of quarterly earnings, partially offset by the payment of the common stock dividend during the quarter and stock buybacks.
WSFS’ tangible common equity(2) increased $51.4 million, or 4% (not annualized), to $1.3 billion at June 30, 2019 from $1.2 billion at March 31, 2019 for the reasons described in the paragraph above. WSFS’ common equity to assets ratio was 15.11% at June 30, 2019, and our tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio(2) increased by 47 bps during the quarter to 10.89%.
At June 30, 2019, book value per share was $34.50, an increase of $0.81, or 2%, from March 31, 2019, and tangible common book value per share(2) was $23.69, an increase of $0.92, or 4%, from March 31, 2019.
At June 30, 2019, WSFS Bank’s Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.95%, Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio and Tier 1 capital ratio of 12.47%, and Total Capital ratio of 12.93% were all substantially in excess of the “well-capitalized” regulatory benchmarks.
The Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.12 per share of common stock. This dividend will be paid on August 22, 2019 to stockholders of record as of August 8, 2019.
During 2Q 2019, WSFS repurchased 193,888 shares of common stock at an average price of $41.39 as part of our share buyback program approved by the Board of Directors in 4Q 2018. WSFS has 2,865,638 shares, or slightly more than 5% of outstanding shares, remaining to repurchase under this authorization. As capital levels subsequent to our acquisition of Beneficial are stronger than anticipated, we will continue to execute on the Board approved share buyback plan including increased opportunistic share repurchase above our stated practice of returning a minimum of 25% of annual net income to stockholders through dividends and share repurchases, based on current valuation levels.









(2) As used in this release, tangible common equity, tangible common equity to tangible assets and tangible common book value per share are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures exclude goodwill and intangible assets and the related tax-effected amortization. For a reconciliation of these and other non-GAAP measures to their comparable GAAP measures, see pages 20 and 21 of this press release.

(o)
The Company uses non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial information in its analysis of the Company’s performance. 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 and other non-GAAP measures to their comparable GAAP measures, see pages 20 and 21 of this press release.
(p)
Includes commercial small business leases.
