CEO Commentary

Rodger Levenson, Chairman, President and CEO, said, “Our 2Q operating results included continued improvement across key credit metrics, solid growth in our fee businesses, and a strong capital and balance sheet position. We are well positioned for the post-COVID economic recovery, including our significant organic growth opportunity as the largest locally owned bank and wealth management franchise in the Greater Philadelphia and Delaware region.

“During the quarter we were also pleased to receive stockholder approval on our upcoming combination with Bryn Mawr. In addition, we recently received a key regulatory approval from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Pending the remaining required regulatory approval, we remain on track for an early fourth quarter close.

“Additionally, we recognized a gain on our shares of SoFi which went public during the quarter. This investment began in 2015 from our relationship with Zenbanx and is consistent with our history of partnerships with entrepreneurial companies to enhance our knowledge base of innovative products and services. We were pleased to take a portion of these proceeds to make a $1.0 million contribution to the WSFS CARES Foundation. We continue to invest in the success of our local communities, which is critical to our strategy of “Engaged Associates, living our culture, making a better life for all we serve.”

At June 30, 2021, WSFS’ net loan and lease portfolio decreased $284.2 million when compared with March 31, 2021, including a $303.9 million decrease in PPP loans primarily due to forgiveness. Excluding PPP loans, purposeful run-off portfolios, and the ACL, loans increased $34.2 million, or 2% (annualized), due to growth in C&I, CRE, and commercial small business leases.

Net loans and leases at June 30, 2021 decreased $984.7 million when compared with June 30, 2020, including a $722.3 million decrease in PPP loans primarily due to forgiveness. Excluding PPP loans, purposeful run-off portfolios, and the ACL, loans increased $93.3 million, or 1%, year-over-year, with growth across CRE, construction, and commercial small business leases.

Total customer deposits were $12.7 billion at June 30, 2021, a $445.2 million, or 15% (annualized), increase from March 31, 2021 and a $1.9 billion, or 17%, increase from June 30, 2020, reflecting continued elevated deposits from customers who received PPP loans, government stimulus impact, lower customer spending, and Trust relationships. Core deposits were $11.6 billion at June 30, 2021, an increase of $487.2 million, or 18% (annualized), over the prior quarter, including $310.4 million of deposits from Trust relationships. Core deposits were a strong 92% of total customer deposits and no- and low-cost checking accounts represented a robust 55% of total customer deposits at June 30, 2021. These core deposits predominantly represent longer-term, less price-sensitive customer relationships. The ratio of net loans and leases to customer deposits was 65% at June 30, 2021 reflecting significant liquidity capacity.

Net Interest Income

                         
    Three Months Ending
(Dollars in thousands)   June 30, 2021   March 31, 2021   June 30, 2020
Net interest income before purchase accretion and PPP   $ 93,409     $ 93,524     $ 96,400  
Purchase accounting accretion   7,594     11,295     12,520  
Net interest income before PPP   101,003     104,819     108,920  
PPP   5,746     9,366     4,836  
Net interest income   $ 106,749     $ 114,185     $ 113,756  
             
Net interest margin before purchase accretion and PPP   2.91 %   3.10 %   3.58 %
Purchase accounting accretion   0.24     0.37     0.43  
Net interest margin before PPP   3.15     3.47     4.01  
PPP   0.08     0.12     (0.08 )
Net interest margin   3.23 %   3.59 %   3.93 %
                   

Net interest income decreased $7.0 million, or 6%, compared to 2Q 2020, due to a $4.9 million decrease in purchase accounting accretion and a $3.0 million reduction, primarily from lower loan balances due to purposeful run-off and excluding PPP. These decreases were partially offset by $0.9 million of higher PPP income in 2Q 2021. Net interest income decreased $7.4 million, or 7% (not annualized), from 1Q 2021 due to a $3.7 million decrease in purchase accounting accretion and $3.6 million of lower PPP income due to lower balances from loan forgiveness.

Net interest margin decreased 70 bps from 2Q 2020, including 45 bps from the significant excess liquidity impact on customer deposits, 22 bps from lower purchase accounting accretion, and a 19 bps net decline from the lower rate environment and balance sheet mix, partially offset by a 16 bps increase from PPP. Net interest margin decreased 36 bps from 1Q 2021 including 13 bps from lower purchase accounting accretion, 11 bps from the liquidity increase in customer deposits, 8 bps from balance sheet mix and lower yields from turnover in our loan and investment portfolios, and 4 bps from PPP.

Second quarter 2021 results were significantly impacted by continued high levels of excess customer liquidity described above. The additional customer deposits reduced our net interest margin by approximately 50 bps compared to a reduction of 39 bps in 1Q 2021 and 5 bps in 2Q 2020.

Credit Quality

Credit quality improved across all leading metrics during the quarter, including total problem assets(3) which were $624.9 million at June 30, 2021 compared to $723.6 million at March 31, 2021, with most of the decline attributable to the hotel sector. Delinquencies decreased to $54.5 million at June 30, 2021, or 0.66% of gross loans, and are relatively consistent with pre-COVID historical trends.

Nonperforming assets declined to $40.1 million at June 30, 2021 primarily due to the resolution of one C&I problem loan relationship during the quarter. Net charge-offs for 2Q 2021 were $4.8 million, or 0.23% (annualized) of average gross loans, mainly driven by the resolution of the same C&I problem loan relationship. Customer loans receiving short-term loan modifications at June 30, 2021 were $120.4 million, or 1% of the loan portfolio excluding PPP.

Total net credit (recoveries) costs were $(68.1) million in the quarter compared to $(19.0) million in 1Q 2021, and the ACL decreased to $132.4 million due to improved economic forecasts from the prior quarter, favorable overall risk rating migration and new loan originations offset by portfolio run-off.

(3) Total problem assets includes all criticized, classified, and nonperforming loans as well as other real estate owned (OREO).

The following table summarizes credit quality metrics as of and for the period ended June 30, 2021 compared to March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020.

See “Notes”

Core Fee Revenue

Core fee revenue (noninterest income) was $43.8 million, an increase of $3.3 million, or 8%, compared to 2Q 2020, including a $3.4 million decrease in interchange fees resulting from the Durbin Amendment effective at the beginning of 3Q 2020 and $0.4 million of referral fees related to PPP round two loans during the quarter. Excluding Durbin and PPP, core fee revenue increased $6.3 million, or 16%, including increases of $4.5 million from Trust and Wealth services revenue, $2.2 million from Cash Connect®, $1.2 million from gains on SBA loans, $1.1 million from deposit service charges, and $1.3 million from all other banking fees. These increases reflect strong diversification in our revenue sources and increased transaction activity as the economy reopens. Partially offsetting these increases was a $4.0 million decline in mortgage banking fees primarily resulting from the expected decline in refinancing originations compared to the historically higher levels in 2Q 2020.

Core fee revenue decreased $3.7 million, or 8%, compared to 1Q 2021, due to a $4.1 million decrease in mortgage banking revenue and $1.8 million of lower PPP Round Two referral fees in the quarter. Partially offsetting these decreases were a $1.5 million increase in Cash Connect® fees and a $0.7 million increase in Wealth Management fees.

For 2Q 2021, core fee revenue was 29.0% of core net revenue compared to 26.2% at 2Q 2020, and was diversified among various sources, including traditional banking, mortgage banking, Wealth Management and Cash Connect®. The year-over-year percentage comparison also includes the impact of lower net interest income offset by the adverse impacts of the Durbin Amendment.

Core Noninterest Expense(4)

Core noninterest expense of $91.5 million for 2Q 2021 increased $0.9 million compared to $90.6 million in 2Q 2020, primarily due to a $3.7 million increase in salaries and benefits reflecting franchise growth, a $1.6 million increase in equipment expenses primarily due to higher third-party software expense related to our ongoing delivery transformation initiatives, and a $0.9 million increase in Cash Connect® costs that were more than offset by higher revenue. Partially offsetting these increases was a $5.1 million decrease in loan workout and other credit costs compared to 2Q 2020, which included a $4.2 million decrease to the unfunded commitment reserve.

When compared to 1Q 2021, core noninterest expense decreased $2.2 million primarily due to $1.7 million of lower loan workout and other credit costs, including a $1.4 million decrease in the unfunded commitment reserve resulting from line draws in 2Q 2021.

Our core efficiency ratio(4) was 60.7% in 2Q 2021, compared to 57.9% in 1Q 2021 and 58.7% in 2Q 2020 primarily due to the impact of lower net interest income.

Income Taxes

We recorded a $31.7 million income tax provision in 2Q 2021, compared to $21.4 million income tax provision in 1Q 2021 and $2.2 million income tax benefit in 2Q 2020. The effective tax rate was 24.9% in 2Q 2021, 24.7% in 1Q 2021, and 22.3% in 2Q 2020. The year-over-year increase primarily reflects the impact of higher pre-tax income in 2Q 2021.

(4) As used in this press release, core noninterest expense and core efficiency ratio are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude corporate development and restructuring expense and the contribution to the WSFS Community Fund. For a reconciliation of these and other non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP measures, see "Non-GAAP Reconciliation" at the end of the press release

Capital Management

The Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.13 per share of common stock. This dividend will be paid on August 19, 2021 to stockholders of record as of August 5, 2021.

No repurchase of common stock occurred in 2Q 2021 and we expect repurchases will continue to be suspended until the close of the merger with Bryn Mawr, which is currently anticipated to occur early in the fourth quarter of 2021. WSFS has 4,381,161 shares, or approximately 9% of outstanding shares, remaining to repurchase under our current authorization.

WSFS’ total stockholders’ equity increased $113.4 million, or 6% (not annualized), during 2Q 2021, primarily due to quarterly earnings and a $24.1 million market-value increase on available-for-sale securities, partially offset by the dividend on common stock paid during the quarter.

WSFS’ tangible common equity(5) increased $116.2 million, or 10% (not annualized) compared to March 31, 2021 for the reasons described above. WSFS’ common equity to assets ratio was 12.44% at June 30, 2021, and our tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio(5) increased by 55 bps during the quarter to 9.13%.

At June 30, 2021, book value per share was $39.63, an increase of $2.36, or 6%, from March 31, 2021, and tangible common book value per share(5) was $28.02, an increase of $2.42 from March 31, 2021.

At June 30, 2021, WSFS Bank’s Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.11%, Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio and Tier 1 capital ratio of 14.21%, and Total Capital ratio of 15.41% were all substantially in excess of the “well-capitalized” regulatory benchmarks.

(5) As used in this press 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 financial measures exclude goodwill and intangible assets and the related tax-effected amortization. For a reconciliation of these and other non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP measures, see "Non-GAAP Reconciliation" at the end of the press release.

Selected Business Segments (included in previous results):

Wealth Management

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 $26.7 billion in assets under management (AUM) and assets under administration (AUA) as of June 30, 2021. 

Wealth Management reported pre-tax income of $10.7 million in 2Q 2021 compared to $3.9 million in 2Q 2020, and $9.3 million in 1Q 2021.

For 2Q 2021, total revenue (net interest income and fee income) was $20.4 million, an increase of $5.7 million, or 39%, compared to 2Q 2020 and $1.3 million, or 7%, compared to 1Q 2021. The increases were due to strong results across all Wealth Management lines of business.

WSFS Institutional Services®’ revenue of $8.9 million in 2Q 2021 was up 61% from 2Q 2020 and up 13% from 1Q 2021. Growth in our corporate trust business was supported by continued strength in the debt securitization market as reflected by a 13% increase in transaction volume relative to 1Q 2021 and new client relationships. We retained our industry ranking position of #6 according to Asset Backed Alert while increasing market share from 5% to approximately 8%.

Revenue from our advisory businesses, consisting of West Capital Management®, Cypress and WSFS Wealth® Investments, totaled $3.9 million in 2Q 2021 compared to $3.0 million in 2Q 2020, and $4.2 million in 1Q 2021. Net AUM at the end of 2Q 2021 was 15% higher than 2Q 2020 and 8% (non-annualized) higher than 1Q 2021 primarily from strong equity market performance and client inflows.

Total noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations and excluding provision for credit losses) was $10.9 million in 2Q 2021, compared to $9.9 million in 2Q 2020 and $10.4 million in 1Q 2021. Wealth Management efficiency ratio was 47% in 2Q 2021, compared to 59% in 2Q 2020 and 47% in 1Q 2021.

Cash Connect®

Cash Connect® is a premier provider of ATM vault cash, smart safe and cash logistics services in the United States. Cash Connect® services approximately 34,000 non-bank ATMs and retail safes nationwide supplying or servicing approximately $1.8 billion in cash at June 30, 2021. Cash Connect® also supports over 600 ATMs for WSFS Bank Customers, which is one of the largest branded ATM networks in our market.

Cash Connect® reported pre-tax income of $3.3 million for 2Q 2021, an increase of $1.3 million, or 64%, compared to 2Q 2020, and an increase of $1.6 million, or 93%, compared to 1Q 2021. These increases were driven by resumption of economic activity and cash usage as the effects of the pandemic continued to recede. ROA of 2.08% in 2Q 2021 increased 80 bps from 1Q 2021 and 27 bps from 2Q 2020.

Net revenue of $11.7 million in 2Q 2021 was up $2.3 million from 2Q 2020 and $1.6 million from 1Q 2021. These increases were driven by higher average ATM and smart safe cash volume.

Noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations of expense) was $8.4 million in 2Q 2021, an increase of $1.1 million compared to 2Q 2020 driven by increased armored carrier activity (offset in managed services revenue), and flat compared to 1Q 2021.

During 2Q 2021, Cash Connect® continued to see a higher demand for cash as ATM and smart safe activity increased across the nation with in person cash transactions. During the quarter, the division added over 1,500 smart safes and non-asset based reconciliation ATM units, and total cash managed of approximately $1.8 billion at the end of 2Q 2021, as Cash Connect® continues to expand and build upon relationships with retailers and top financial institutions nationwide.

Forward-Looking Statement Disclaimer
This press release 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. The words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “estimate,” “target,” “project” and similar expressions, among others, generally identify forward-looking statements. 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, difficult market conditions and unfavorable economic trends in the United States generally, and particularly in the markets in which the Company operates and in which its loans are concentrated, including possible declines in housing markets, an increase in unemployment levels and slowdowns in economic growth, including as a result of the novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") pandemic; possible additional loan losses and impairment of the collectability of loans, particularly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the policies and programs implemented by the CARES Act including its automatic loan forbearance provisions and our PPP lending activities; additional credit, fraud and litigation risks associated with our PPP lending activities; economic and financial impact of federal, state and local emergency orders and other actions taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic; the continuation of these conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including whether due to a resurgence or additional waves of COVID-19 infections, particularly as the geographic areas in which we operate continue to re-open, and how quickly and to what extent normal economic and operating conditions can resume, especially as a vaccine becomes widely available; the Company's level of nonperforming assets and the costs associated with resolving problem loans including litigation and other costs and complying with government-imposed foreclosure moratoriums; changes in market interest rates which may increase funding costs and reduce earning asset yields and thus reduce 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 the Company's loan portfolio; the extensive federal and state regulation, supervision and examination governing almost every aspect of the Company's operations and potential expenses associated with complying with such regulations; the Company's ability to comply with applicable capital and liquidity requirements (including the effect of the transition to the Current Expected Credit Losses (CECL) methodology for allowances and related adjustments), including its ability to generate liquidity internally or raise capital on favorable terms; possible changes in trade, monetary and fiscal policies and stimulus programs, laws and regulations and other activities of governments, agencies, and similar organizations, and the uncertainty of the short- and long-term impacts of such changes; any impairments of the Company's goodwill or other intangible assets; conditions in the financial markets, including the destabilized economic environment caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, that may limit the Company's access to additional funding to meet its liquidity needs; the intention of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to cease support of London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and the transition to an alternative reference interest rate, such as the Secured Overnight Funding Rate (SOFR), including methodologies for calculating the rate that are different from the LIBOR methodology and changed language for existing and new floating or adjustable rate contracts; the success of the Company's growth plans, including its plans to grow the commercial small business leasing portfolio and residential mortgage small business and Small Business Administration portfolios; the Company's ability to successfully integrate and fully realize the cost savings and other benefits of its acquisitions, manage risks related to business disruption following those acquisitions, and post-acquisition Customer acceptance of the Company's products and services and related Customer disintermediation, including its pending acquisition of Bryn Mawr; the Company’s ability to complete the acquisition of Bryn Mawr on the terms proposed, which are subject to a number of conditions, risks and uncertainties, including the possibility that the proposed acquisition does not close when expected or at all because all conditions to closing are not received or satisfied on a timely basis or at all, the failure to close for any other reason, diversion of management time on merger-related issues, risks relating to the potential dilutive effect of shares of the Company’s common stock to be issued in the acquisition of Bryn Mawr, and the reaction to the acquisition of Bryn Mawr of the companies’ customers, employees and counterparties; negative perceptions or publicity with respect to the Company generally and, in particular, the Company's trust and wealth management business; failure of the financial and operational controls of the Company's Cash Connect® division; adverse judgments or other resolution of pending and future legal proceedings, and cost incurred in defending such proceedings; the Company's reliance on third parties for certain important functions, including the operation of its core systems, and any failures by such third parties; system failures or cybersecurity incidents or other breaches of the Company's network security, particularly given widespread remote working arrangements; the Company's ability to recruit and retain key Associates; 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, public health crises and man-made disasters including terrorist attacks; the effects of regional or national civil unrest (including any resulting branch or ATM closures or damage); possible changes in the speed of loan prepayments by the Company's Customers and loan origination or sales volumes; possible changes in the speed of prepayments of mortgage-backed securities due to changes in the interest rate environment, particularly as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the related acceleration of premium amortization on prepayments in the event that prepayments accelerate; regulatory limits on the Company's ability to receive dividends from its subsidiaries and pay dividends to its stockholders; any reputation, credit, interest rate, market, operational, litigation, legal, liquidity, regulatory and compliance risk resulting from developments related to any of the risks discussed above; and other risks and uncertainties, including those discussed in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and other documents filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time.

We caution readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date on which they are made, and the Company disclaims any duty to revise or update any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time by or on behalf of the Company for any reason, except as specifically required by law.

The Company’s management believes that these non-GAAP financial 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 financial 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.
