Net revenues (which includes interest income and noninterest income) were $86.0 million for 2Q 2017 , an increase of $14.1 million , or 20% from 2Q 2016 .

CEO outlook and commentary
Mark A. Turner, President and CEO, said, "Our strong second quarter results demonstrate our disciplined approach in executing on our strategic goals, including the continued success in integrating and optimizing our recent business combinations and investments. Earnings growth was well balanced across our businesses highlighted by a 24.1% increase in core fee income from 2Q 2016, including 13% from organic growth. Our strong net interest income results reflect our rigorous approach to growing loans and deposits in a competitive environment. Expenses were well managed, with our core efficiency ratio improving from 1Q 2017 and 2Q 2016, while our credit quality metrics were strong and improved across all key ratios. We reported a core ROA of 1.22% , which keeps us well on track to meet or exceed our Strategic Plan goals, including our core and sustainable ROA goal of 1.30% by the fourth quarter of 2018.
"Importantly, during the quarter and for the second year in a row, we were honored to receive the 2017 Gallup Great Workplace Award. Focusing our efforts on engagement continues to be the main ingredient of our sustainable high-performance, and provides us the ability to better serve our communities. Our continued strong financial performance and market recognitions demonstrate the success of our strategy, 'Engaged Associates delivering stellar experiences growing Customer Advocates and value for our Owners'."
Second Quarter 2017 Discussion of Financial Results
Net interest income and margin reflects good growth and disciplined pricing
Net interest income for 2Q 2017 was $54.3 million , an increase of $7.9 million , or 17% compared to 2Q 2016 due to both organic and acquisition-related growth.
The net interest margin for 2Q 2017 was 3.93% , a 3 bps increase from 3.90% for 2Q 2016 . This includes a 6 bps negative impact due to our issuance of $100.0 million senior notes in late 2Q 2016 , 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 effects of our combination with Penn Liberty, disciplined pricing of loans and deposits, and higher short-term interest rates. These increases were offset somewhat by higher wholesale borrowing costs to support increased fee income business from Cash Connect ® .

Compared with 1Q 2017, net interest income increased $1.2 million or 2% (not annualized) and net interest margin increased 3 bps due to the positive effect of loan and deposit growth, disciplined pricing, rising interest rates, and the aforementioned $352.4 million trust deposit. These positive impacts were offset somewhat by a decrease of $0.7 million , or 5 bps of net interest margin, in acquisition-related interest income accretion in 2Q 2017 .
Loan portfolio growth continues
At June 30, 2017 , WSFS’ net loan portfolio was $4.62 billion , an increase of $33.6 million , or 3% (annualized) compared to March 31, 2017. The increase resulted from a $28.2 million , or 24% (annualized) increase in consumer loans and a $7.6 million , or 1% (annualized) increase in total commercial loans, partially offset by a $2.0 million decrease in residential mortgages. The second quarter included an anticipated large number of commercial loan pay-downs and pay-offs. Nevertheless, net loan growth for the first six months of 2017 was $116.0 million , or 5% (annualized).
Compared to June 30, 2016 , net loans increased $756.0 million , or 20% . This increase includes the loans acquired from Penn Liberty and organic loan growth of $272.5 million , or 7% . The majority of the year-over-year organic growth was in C&I loans, which increased $149.2 million , or 7% , consumer loans, which increased $66.1 million , or 18% , and construction loans, which increased $61.8 million , or 31% . These increases were partially offset by a decline in residential mortgages of $28.8 million , or 10% , reflecting our ongoing strategy of selling most newly-originated residential mortgages in the secondary market.

Credit quality trends improve and remain favorable

Credit quality metrics improved during 2Q 2017 , and reflect continued strength in portfolio performance.
Total delinquencies, which include nonperforming delinquencies, were only $23.9 million at June 30, 2017 , a low 0.52 % of gross loans, and represent a slight decrease from $24.2 million and 0.53 % of gross loans at March 31, 2017 . Excluding nonperforming delinquencies, performing-loan delinquencies were a very low 0.11% at June 30, 2017, near the lowest level in the past several years.
Total problem loans (all criticized, classified and nonperforming loans) decreased to $161.7 million , or 23.2% of Tier 1 capital plus the allowance for loan losses (ALLL) at June 30, 2017 , compared to $184.0 million , or 27.1% at March 31, 2017 .
Total nonperforming assets were $58.6 million at June 30, 2017 , a $1.9 million decrease from March 31, 2017 . The nonperforming assets to total assets ratio was 0.86% at June 30, 2017 compared to 0.88% at March 31, 2017 . At June 30, 2017 and March 31, 2017 , nonperforming assets included the impact of a $9.7 million locally-based, C&I participation that was downgraded during 1Q 2017 after a targeted energy sector review. The loan relationship has been, and continues to be, paying current, and positive resolution is expected in the near term.
Net charge-offs for 2Q 2017 were $1.7 million or only 0.15% of total net loans on an annualized basis, a decrease from $2.1 million , or 0.19% (annualized) in 1Q 2017 , and an increase from $1.1 million , or 0.11% (annualized) during 2Q 2016 .
Total credit costs (provision for loan losses, loan workout expenses, other real estate owned (OREO) expenses and other credit costs) were $2.3 million for 2Q 2017 , a decrease from $2.8 million during 1Q 2017 and an increase from $1.3 million during 2Q 2016 .
The ratio of the ALLL to total gross loans was 0.87% at June 30, 2017 , which was flat when compared to March 31, 2017 . Excluding the balances for acquired loans (marked-to-market at acquisition), the ALLL to total gross loans ratio would have been 1.02 % at June 30, 2017 and 1.04 % at March 31, 2017 . The ALLL was 104% of nonaccruing loans at June 30, 2017 compared to 100% at March 31, 2017 and 259% at June 30, 2016 .

Customer funding reflects a decline in both seasonal public funding and higher-cost deposit balances   
Total customer funding was $4.65 billion at June 30, 2017 , a $448.4 million decrease from March 31, 2017 . Customer funding balances at March 31, 2017 were positively impacted by one large temporary trust deposit of $352.4 million that was received late in 1Q 2017 and withdrawn from the bank, as anticipated, in April 2017. Excluding the impact of this deposit, customer funding decreased $96.0 million compared to March 31, 2017 . The decrease was primarily due to a $40.7 million seasonal decline in public funding account balances and a purposeful decrease in higher-cost CDs during the quarter in order to enhance the net interest margin. These decreases were partially offset by a $9.3 million increase in low-cost relationship checking deposit accounts. Core deposits increased $110.3 million during the first six months of 2017, or 5% (annualized).
Customer funding increased $818.8 million , or 21% compared to June 30, 2016 . In addition to deposits acquired from Penn Liberty of $574.8 million (fair market value at acquisition), organic customer funding growth was $244.0 million , or 6% , including organic core deposit growth of $306.8 million , or 9% , over the prior year, offset by purposeful run-off of higher-cost CDs.
Core deposits were 88 % of total customer deposits, and no- and low-cost checking deposit accounts represent 48% of total customer deposits at June 30, 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 99% at June 30, 2017 .

Strong fee income growth continues
Core fee income (noninterest income) increased by $6.0 million , or 24.1% , to $31.0 million compared to 2Q 2016 . This was the result of good growth across most of our businesses and included increases in investment management and fiduciary revenue of $2.6 million and credit/debit card and ATM income of $1.7 million , as well as $0.8 million from the gain on sale of Small Business Administration (SBA) loans. Our organic fee income growth was a healthy 13% , or more than half of the 24.1% year-over-year growth.
When compared to the seasonally-slow 1Q 2017 , core fee income increased $3.2 million , or 12% (not annualized), including a $0.8 million increase in credit/debit card and ATM income, a $0.8 million increase in investment management and fiduciary revenue, and $0.7 million of higher mortgage banking revenue.
For 2Q 2017 , fee income was 36.5% of total revenue (computed on a fully tax-equivalent basis), a meaningful increase when compared to 35.1% for 2Q 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 2Q 2017 was $52.4 million , an increase of $8.2 million or 18.6% from $44.1 million in 2Q 2016 . Contributing to the year-over-year increase was $4.2 million of ongoing operating costs from our late 2016 combinations with Penn Liberty, Powdermill, and West Capital. The remaining increase primarily reflects higher compensation and related costs due to added staff to support overall franchise growth.
When compared to 1Q 2017 , core noninterest expense increased $1.2 million , primarily due to a $1.0 million increase in legal and professional fees, which can be uneven, and higher operating expenses associated with seasonally stronger revenues. These higher costs were partially offset by a decline in compensation, occupancy, and related expenses due to higher 1Q 2017 costs due to typical seasonality.












(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.

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 $172.0 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 adviser with $822.0 million in AUM (includes $110.0 million of Christiana Trust assets for which Cypress serves as sub-adviser). 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 adviser with $796.7 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 $15.72 billion in assets under management and administration (includes $110.0 million of Christiana Trust assets for which Cypress serves as sub-adviser), provides fiduciary and investment services to personal trust clients; and trustee, agency, bankruptcy administration, custodial and commercial domicile services to corporate and institutional clients.

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 $12.7 million for 2Q 2017 . This was an increase of $3.2 million, or 34% compared to 2Q 2016 and an increase of $1.1 million compared to 1Q 2017 . Included in the year-over-year increase, fee revenue increased $2.6 million, or 39%, compared to 2Q 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 $9.1 million during 2Q 2017 compared to $6.1 million during 2Q 2016 and $8.3 million during 1Q 2017 . The year-over-year increase in costs was due to higher legal and consulting costs on a few legacy trust matters, increased compensation expense due to higher revenue, other infrastructure costs necessary to support the continuing growth of the business, higher loan loss provision in Private Banking as well as the ongoing operational costs from the combinations with Powdermill and West Capital.
Pre-tax income in 2Q 2017 was $3.6 million compared to $3.4 million in 2Q 2016 and $3.3 million in 1Q 2017 and was driven by the above-mentioned factors.

Cash Connect net revenue increases 9% 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 21,000 non-bank ATMs and retail safes nationwide with over $900 million in cash and other fee-based services. Cash Connect® also operates over 440 ATMs for WSFS Bank, which has the largest branded ATM network in Delaware.
Our Cash Connect ® division recorded $9.1 million in net revenue (fee income less funding costs) in 2Q 2017 , an increase of $0.8 million or 9% from 2Q 2016 and an increase of $0.7 million from 1Q 2017 , primarily due to continued growth in the bailment, cash management and smart safe lines of business, partially offset by higher funding costs. Noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations of expense) was $7.3 million during 2Q 2017 , an increase of $1.1 million from 2Q 2016 and an increase of $0.4 million compared to 1Q 2017 .  The year-over-year increase in expenses was primarily due to higher operating costs associated with higher fee income as well as increased investments for several new features and enhancements to our managed services and smart safe products. Cash Connect ® reported pre-tax income of $1.9 million for 2Q 2017 , which was a decrease of $0.3 million, or 13% from 2Q 2016 as a result of margin compression from rising interest rates and loss of floor rate benefit. An increase of $0.3 million, or 16%, when compared to 1Q 2017 was primarily driven by business growth from Cash Connect ® ’s largest customers, more managed service business and growing momentum in its smart safe service offering.
Cash Connect ® continues to focus on expanding both ATM and smart safe managed services to offset margin compression resulting from industry consolidation and increased expense pressure on our customers caused by the rising interest rate environment. Cash Connect ® is also improving funding costs by optimizing cash usage throughout our network. Cash Connect ® has a growing smart safe pipeline generated by several smart safe channel partners actively marketing our program, in addition to over 1,000 safes as of June 30, 2017, up from just over 100 safes at the end of 2015.
Income taxes
The Company recorded a $10.9 million income tax provision in 2Q 2017 , compared to provisions of $8.6 million in 1Q 2017 and $8.5 million in 2Q 2016 .

The effective tax rate was 34.5% in 2Q 2017 , 31.2% in 1Q 2017 , and 32.7% in 2Q 2016 . The effective tax rate increased in 2Q 2017 in comparison with 1Q 2017 and 2Q 2016 . The lower effective tax rate in prior quarters included higher tax benefits realized on stock-based compensation due to typical higher transaction volumes and the initial adoption of ASU No. 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) in 2Q 2016 .
Capital management
WSFS’ total stockholders’ equity increased $18.6 million , or 3% (not annualized), to $722.6 million at June 30, 2017 from $704.0 million at March 31, 2017, primarily due to quarterly earnings and improvement in net unrealized losses in the investment portfolio, partially offset by stock buybacks and the payment of the common stock dividend during the quarter.
WSFS’ tangible common equity (3) increased by 4% (not annualized) to $532.6 million at June 30, 2017 from $513.6 million at March 31, 2017 due to the reasons noted in the paragraph above.
WSFS’ common equity to assets ratio was 10.59% at June 30, 2017 , and its tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio (3) increased by 32 bps during the quarter to 8.03% . At June 30, 2017 , book value per share was $22.99 , a $0.61 , or 2.7% (not annualized), increase from March 31, 2017 , and tangible common book value per share (3) was $16.94 , a $0.61 , or 3.7% (not annualized) increase from March 31, 2017 .
At June 30, 2017 , WSFS Bank’s Tier I leverage ratio of 10.06% , Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio and Tier 1 capital ratio of 11.42% , and Total Capital ratio of 12.14% , were all substantially in excess of the “well-capitalized” regulatory benchmarks.
In 2Q 2017 , WSFS repurchased 71,000 shares of common stock at an average price of $45.18 as part of our 5% buyback program approved by the Board of Directors in 4Q 2015. WSFS has 821,194 shares, or nearly 3% of outstanding shares, remaining to repurchase under this current authorization. In addition, the Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.07 per share of common stock. This dividend will be paid on August 25, 2017 to shareholders of record as of August 11, 2017 .




(3) Tangible common equity, tangible common equity to assets and tangible common book value per share are non-GAAP financial measures. For a reconciliation of these measures to their comparable GAAP measures, see pages 18 and 19 of this press release.

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.

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.
