WILMINGTON, Del.

Net revenues included net interest income of $53.1 million , an increase of $7.7 million , or 17% from 1Q 2016 and noninterest income of $28.1 million , an increase of $4.4 million , or 19% from 1Q 2016. Noninterest expenses were $51.5 million , an increase of $7.7 million , or 18% from 1Q 2016. This resulted in an efficiency ratio of 62.9% in 1Q 2017 compared with 62.8% in 1Q 2016.

Customer deposits grew $500.6 million during the quarter and $1.23 billion when compared to 1Q 2016, including a $352.4 million deposit that is short-term in nature from a trust relationship. Excluding the impact of this trust deposit, customer deposits grew a healthy $148.2 million or 13% (annualized) from 4Q 2016.
Notable items in the quarter:

WSFS recorded $0.3 million (pre-tax), or slightly less than $0.01 per share (after-tax) in expenses for corporate development activities during 1Q 2017 compared to $0.6 million or slightly more than $0.01 per share in 1Q 2016.
WSFS realized $0.3 million , or slightly less than $0.01 per share in net gains on sales of securities sales from its investment portfolio in both 1Q 2017 and 1Q 2016.
During the quarter, the Company recognized a tax benefit of $1.3 million, or $0.04 per share, related to the accounting for stock-based compensation activity under ASU No. 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718). This contributed to an effective tax rate of 31.2% for the quarter. The Company adopted this accounting standard during 2Q 2016 and therefore did not record any such tax benefits in 1Q 2016. The Company recorded a $0.5 million tax benefit related to ASU 2016-09 in 4Q 2016.

CEO outlook and commentary
Mark A. Turner, President and CEO, said, "Our first quarter results demonstrate continued success in executing on our strategic goals and optimization of our recent business combinations and investments. This success included strong organic growth in loans, core deposits, net revenues and fee income, and was achieved despite this being our normal seasonally slower quarter and a slowdown in the mortgage market.

"These results continue to lead us on a path of meeting or exceeding our current Strategic Plan goals, including a core and sustainable ROA goal of 1.30% by the fourth quarter of 2018. Our first quarter results positively reflect the key focus areas of our Strategic Plan, including gaining market share, deepening customer relationships, growing fee income, and optimizing and innovating across our organization. Innovation and organizational learning is vital to our long-term success, and we were pleased to announce during the quarter the extension of our fintech strategic alliance with Social Finance Inc. (SoFi) in conjunction with its acquisition of Zenbanx to explore partnering on innovative products in the financial services marketplace.
"During the quarter, we were also named a 'Top WorkPlace' in the greater Philadelphia market by philly.com. This is the third year in a row that we have been recognized and this year we earned a strong 3rd place in the mid-size company category, up from 8th in the small company category last year. This means a great deal to us as it affirms that our culture, brand and business model are taking hold in our newer markets in Pennsylvania. Our continued strong financial performance and market recognition are strong indicators that we are successfully executing our strategy, 'Engaged Associates delivering stellar experiences growing Customer Advocates and value for our Owners'."
First Quarter 2017 Discussion of Financial Results
Net interest income and margin reflects strong loan growth
Net interest income for 1Q 2017 was $53.1 million , an increase of $7.7 million , or 17% compared to 1Q 2016 due primarily to organic and acquisition-related loan growth.
The net interest margin for 1Q 2017 was 3.90% , a 3 bps increase from 3.87% for 1Q 2016 despite an 8 bps decrease due to our issuance of $100.0 of million senior notes in 2Q 2016, the impact of which will be substantially recovered as we plan to use part of the proceeds to pay off older, higher-cost debt in 3Q 2017. The year-over-year increase in the net interest margin reflects the positive impact of our combination with Penn Liberty, offset somewhat by higher funding costs to support the increase in Cash Connect ® 's fee-based bailment business.
Net interest income and net interest margin for 1Q 2017 were essentially equal to results for 4Q 2016, as the positive effect of loan growth during the current quarter was offset by fewer days and lower acquisition-related accretion in the first quarter.

Loan Portfolio growth driven by organic and acquisition increases
At March 31, 2017, WSFS’ net loan portfolio was $4.58 billion , an increase of $82.4 million , or 7% (annualized) compared to December 31, 2016. The increase resulted from $101.6 million , or 11% (annualized) growth in total commercial loans and a $15.2 million , or 13% (annualized) increase in consumer loans partially offset by a $34.4 million decrease in residential mortgages, consistent with our strategy to sell most newly originated residential mortgages in the secondary market and lower residential loans held for sale at March 31, 2017 .
Compared to 1Q 2016, net loans increased $762.9 million , or 20% . This increase includes the loans acquired from Penn Liberty and organic loan growth of $359.3 million , or 9% . The majority of the year-over-year organic growth was in C&I loans, which increased $250.7 million , or 13% , consumer loans, which increased $66.0 million , or 18% and CRE loans, which increased $59.4 million , or 6% . These increases were partially offset by a decline in residential mortgages of $27.6 million , or 10% , again reflecting our strategy of selling most newly-originated residential mortgages in the secondary market.

Credit quality
Although most credit quality metrics were generally stable during 1Q 2017, nonperforming assets increased as described further below. 
Total problem loans (all criticized, classified and nonperforming loans) were essentially flat at $184.0 million, or 27.1 % of Tier 1 capital plus the allowance for loan losses (ALLL) at March 31, 2017 , compared to $183.7 million, or 27.7 % at December 31, 2016 .

Delinquencies (which includes nonperforming delinquencies) were $24.2 million at March 31, 2017 , a low 0.53 % of gross loans, representing a slight increase from $22.2 million and 0.50 % of gross loans at December 31, 2016 .
Total nonperforming assets were $60.5 million at March 31, 2017 , a $19.7 million increase from December 31, 2016 . The nonperforming assets to total assets ratio was 0.88% at March 31, 2017 compared to 0.60% at December 31, 2016 . At March 31, 2017 , nonperforming assets included the impact of a $9.7 million locally-based, C&I participation that was downgraded during the quarter after a review at the agent bank. The loan relationship is current and resolution is expected in the near term with no impact to net charge-offs. The remaining increase in nonperforming assets was primarily due to three smaller C&I relationships (ranging from $1.7 to $3.5 million) that were moved to nonaccruing status during the quarter. These relationships were from unrelated industries and resulted from specific events that caused weakness in the underlying business. In each case, a comprehensive impairment analysis was completed and the results are included in the 1Q 2017 provision for loan losses.
Net charge-offs for 1Q 2017, were $2.1 million or only 0.19% of total net loans on an annualized basis, a decrease from $4.4 million , or 0.40% (annualized) in 4Q 2016, and an increase from $0.3 million , or 0.03% (annualized) during 1Q 2016.
Total credit costs (provision for loan losses, loan workout expenses, other real estate owned (OREO) expenses and other credit reserves) were $2.8 million for 1Q 2017, a decrease from $5.9 million during 4Q 2016 and an increase from $1.3 million during 1Q 2016.
The ratio of the ALLL to total gross loans was 0.87% at March 31, 2017 , down slightly from 0.89% at December 31, 2016 . Excluding the balances for acquired loans (marked-to-market at acquisition), the ALLL to total gross loans ratio would have been 1.04% at March 31, 2017 and 1.08% at December 31, 2016 . The ALLL was 100% of nonaccruing loans at March 31, 2017 compared to 174% at December 31, 2016 and 190% at March 31, 2016 .

Total customer funding reflects continued strength in core deposit accounts    
Total customer funding was $5.10 billion at March 31, 2017 , a $500.6 million increase from December 31, 2016 . Customer funding balances at March 31, 2017 were positively impacted by one large short-term trust deposit of $352.4 million that was received late in 1Q 2017. Excluding the impact of this deposit, customer funding increased a healthy $148.2 million , or 13% (annualized), compared to December 31, 2016 .
Customer funding increased $1.23 billion , or 32% compared to March 31, 2016 , or $879.1 million excluding the aforementioned short-term trust deposit. In addition to the short-term trust deposit and $574.8 million (fair market value) of deposits acquired from Penn Liberty, organic customer funding growth was $304.3 million , or 8% , including organic core deposit growth of $352.5 million , or 11% over the prior year, offset by purposeful run-off of higher-cost CDs.
Excluding the aforementioned short-term trust deposit, core deposits were 88% of total customer deposits, and no- and low-cost checking deposit accounts represent 47% of total customer deposits at March 31, 2017 . These core deposits predominantly represent longer-term, less price-sensitive customer relationships, which are very valuable in a rising-rate environment. The loan to customer deposit ratio was 96% at March 31, 2017 , excluding the short-term trust deposit.
The following table summarizes customer funding balances and composition at March 31, 2017 compared to December 31, 2016 and March 31, 2016 :

Fee income reflects strong growth over prior year
Core fee income (noninterest income) increased by $4.4 million , or 19% , to $27.8 million compared to 1Q 2016. This was the result of growth across most of our businesses and included increases in investment management and fiduciary revenue of $2.8 million and credit/debit card and ATM income of $1.2 million .
When compared to 4Q 2016, core fee income was flat as declines in mortgage banking fee revenue (mainly due to rising rates and seasonality), fewer days in the first quarter and a seasonal decline in deposit service charges were offset by higher credit/debit card and ATM income and higher gain on sale of Small Business Administration (SBA) loans.
For 1Q 2017, core fee income was 34.3% of total revenue, a slight increase when compared to 34.0% for 1Q 2016, and was well diversified among various sources, including traditional banking, mortgage banking, wealth management and ATM services (Cash Connect ® ).
Noninterest expense reflects recent combinations and franchise growth
Core noninterest expense (2) for 1Q 2017 was $51.2 million , an increase of $8.0 million from $43.2 million in 1Q 2016. Contributing to the year-over-year increase was $4.8 million of ongoing operating costs from our late 2016 combinations with Penn Liberty, Powdermill, and West Capital. The remaining increase reflects higher compensation and related costs due to added staff to support overall franchise growth.
When compared to 4Q 2016, core noninterest expense increased $3.7 million , primarily as a result of higher compensation and occupancy expenses. The increase in compensation and related expenses reflects typical seasonality related to taxes and other benefits, such as 401(k) matching costs, the payment of incentives, annual merit increases and the reset of tax caps during the first quarter, as well as the impact of a full quarter of operations from the recent combination with West Capital Management. These higher costs were partially offset by a decline in professional fees related to lower legal fees incurred during 1Q 2017.









(2) Core noninterest expense is a non-GAAP financial measure. For a reconciliation of this measure to its comparable GAAP measure, see pages 18 and 19 of this press release.

Selected Business Segments (included in previous results):
Wealth Management segment fee revenue grew 49% over the prior year
The Wealth Management segment provides a broad array of fiduciary, investment management, credit and deposit products to clients through six businesses. WSFS Wealth Investments , with $169.8 million in assets under management (AUM), provides insurance, asset management, and brokerage products primarily to our retail banking clients. Cypress Capital Management, LLC is a registered investment advisor with $774.3 million in AUM. Cypress is a fee-only wealth management firm offering a “balanced” investment style focused on preservation of capital and providing current income whose primary market segment is high net worth individuals. West Capital Management is a registered investment advisor with $779.5 million in AUM. West Capital is a fee-only wealth management firm which operates under a multi-family office philosophy and provides fully customized solutions tailored to the unique needs of institutions and high net worth individuals. Christiana Trust , with $15.85 billion in assets under management and administration, provides fiduciary and investment services to personal trust clients; and trustee, agency, bankruptcy administration, custodial and commercial domicile services to corporate and institutional clients. Powdermill Financial Solutions, LLC is a multi-family office that specializes in providing unique, independent solutions to high net worth individuals, families and corporate executives. WSFS Private Banking serves high net worth clients by delivering credit and deposit products and partnering with other business units to deliver investment management and fiduciary products and services.
Total Wealth Management revenue (net interest income, fiduciary fees and other fee income) was $11.6 million for 1Q 2017. This was an increase of $2.8 million, or 32% compared to 1Q 2016 and was unchanged compared to 4Q 2016. Included in the year-over-year increase, fee revenue increased $2.7 million, or 49%, compared to 1Q 2016. The year-over-year increase reflects continued growth in several Wealth business lines in addition to the combinations with Powdermill Financial Solutions LLC, which occurred in mid-August 2016, and West Capital Management, which occurred in mid-October 2016.
Total noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations and provision for loan losses and credit costs) was $8.3 million during 1Q 2017 compared to $5.8 million during 1Q 2016 and $10.7 million during 4Q 2016. The year-over-year increase in costs was due primarily to the incentive compensation expense related to higher revenue, infrastructure costs necessary to support the growth of the business, higher loan loss provision in Private Banking and the added operational costs from the combinations with Powdermill and West Capital. In comparison with 4Q 2016, the decrease in expense was primarily due to a $3.5 million credit loss recognized in that quarter.
Pre-tax income in 1Q 2017 was $3.3 million compared to $2.9 million in 1Q 2016 and $0.9 million in 4Q 2016 and was driven by the above mentioned factors.

Cash Connect net revenue increases 7% over same quarter 2016
Cash Connect® is a premier provider of ATM vault cash and smart safe and cash logistics services in the United States. Cash Connect® services over 21,000 non-bank ATMs and retail safes nationwide with over $1.02 billion in cash. Cash Connect® also operates over 440 ATMs for WSFS Bank, which has the largest branded ATM network in Delaware.
Our Cash Connect ® division recorded $8.5 million in net revenue (fee income less funding costs) in 1Q 2017, an increase of $0.5 million or 7% from 1Q 2016, reflecting organic growth, albeit at lower margins. Net revenue decreased $0.1 million compared to 4Q 2016 due to normal seasonality. Noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations of expense) was $6.9 million during 1Q 2017, an increase of $0.7 million from 1Q 2016 and an increase of $0.5 million compared to 4Q 2016.  The increase in expenses was due to increased investments for several new services, features and product enhancements to our managed services and smart safe offerings. Cash Connect ® reported pre-tax income of $1.6 million for 1Q 2017, which was a decrease of $0.1 million, or 8% from 1Q 2016 and a decrease of $0.6 million, or 28% when compared to 4Q 2016 driven by the aforementioned factors.
Cash Connect ® continues to focus on value-added services to offset margin compression resulting from consolidation in the vault cash industry and improving our funding costs by optimizing cash usage while expanding funding from other banking partners. Cash Connect ® has a growing smart safe pipeline being generated by several smart safe distribution partners that are actively marketing our program resulting in over 970 safes as of March 31, 2017, up from just over 100 safes at the end of 2015.

Income taxes
The Company recorded a $8.6 million income tax provision in 1Q 2017, compared to provisions of $9.1 million in 4Q 2016 and $8.7 million in 1Q 2016.
The effective tax rate was 31.2% in 1Q 2017, 33.4% in 4Q 2016, and 35.5% in 1Q 2016. The effective tax rate in 1Q 2017 decreased due to a greater tax benefit related to stock-based compensation activity during the quarter due to both the adoption of ASU No. 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) in 2Q 2016 and higher tax benefits realized on stock-based compensation in 1Q 2017, due to greater transaction volume and increases in the Company’s stock price.

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 which 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 shareholders; 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.

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 non-GAAP measures see pages 18 and 19 of this press release.
