CEO Commentary

Rodger Levenson, Chairman, President and CEO, said, “Our second quarter results demonstrated the strength of our business model and unique market position as we continue to optimize our significant strategic investments over the past three years.”

“We remain on track to achieve the synergies identified from the Bryn Mawr Trust combination. In addition, commercial loan fundings were at the highest levels in recent history and we saw continued growth in our consumer loan portfolios. This performance combined with the growth in our fee businesses are positive indicators of the potential of our franchise.”

“Despite the uncertain near term economic outlook, our asset quality metrics remain very favorable with the increase in our ACL related to the loan growth in the quarter.”

“In alignment with our longstanding capital return philosophy, the Board approved a 15% increase in our quarterly common dividend to $0.15 per share and an additional 10% share repurchase authorization. These actions provide us with the flexibility to selectively invest in the franchise while maintaining the strength of our balance sheet.”

"During the quarter, WSFS was honored to be named a 2022 honoree of The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia by the Philadelphia Foundation, in partnership with Points of Light and other local partners. This recognition is a result of the support of our Communities, including over 13,000 volunteer hours in 2021 by our dedicated Associates who continue to live our mission of 'We Stand For Service' every day."

  • The BMT Insurance Advisors (“BMTIA”) business was sold to Patriot Growth Insurance Services, LLC.
     
  • WSFS recognized a $6.0 million unrealized gain on our equity investment with CRED.ai, a Philadelphia-based fintech partner that provides a mobile-based everyday card spending experience.
     
  • $1.1 billion of available-for-sale (“AFS”) mortgage-backed securities (“MBS”), or 19% of AFS portfolio, were designated as held-to-maturity (“HTM”) at June 30, 2022 to limit the capital impact from the rising interest rate environment.

Second Quarter 2022 Discussion of Financial Results

Balance Sheet

The following table summarizes loan and lease balances and composition at June 30, 2022 compared to March 31, 2022 and June 30, 2021:

Loans and Leases                        
(Dollars in millions)   June 30, 2022   March 31, 2022   June 30, 2021
Commercial & industrial (C&I)(4)   $ 4,444     39 %   $ 4,384     39 %   $ 3,456     42 %
Commercial mortgage   3,322     29     3,361     30     2,025     25  
Construction   934     8     924     8     779     9  
Commercial small business leases   513     5     491     4     292     4  
Total commercial loans   9,213     81     9,160     81     6,552     80  
Residential mortgage   808     7     862     8     720     9  
Consumer   1,522     13     1,382     12     1,105     13  
ACL   (142)     (1)     (136)     (1)     (132)     (2)  
Net loans and leases   $ 11,401     100 %   $ 11,268     100 %   $ 8,245     100 %

(4) C&I loans include PPP loans.

At June 30, 2022, WSFS’ net loan and lease portfolio increased $133.4 million, or 5% (annualized), when compared with March 31, 2022. Excluding the sale of KCMI and run-off of acquired residential mortgage portfolio, net loans and leases increased $225.1 million, or 8% (annualized), primarily due to increases of $140.5 million in our consumer portfolio driven by our partnerships with Upstart and Spring EQ, $93.6 million in C&I, and $22.2 million in commercial small business leases, partially offset by decrease of $17.6 million in our commercial mortgage portfolio.

Net loans and leases at June 30, 2022 increased $3.2 billion when compared with June 30, 2021. The increase was primarily driven by the $3.5 billion of net loans and leases acquired in the combination with Bryn Mawr Trust, partially offset by a $217.7 million decrease in PPP loans.

The following table summarizes customer deposit balances and composition at June 30, 2022 compared to March 31, 2022 and June 30, 2021:

Customer Deposits                        
(Dollars in millions)   June 30, 2022   March 31, 2022   June 30, 2021
Noninterest demand   $ 6,552     38 %   $ 6,639     37 %   $ 4,328     34 %
Interest-bearing demand   3,396     20     3,292     19     2,633     21  
Savings   2,313     13     2,279     13     1,928     15  
Money market   3,882     23     4,179     24     2,723     22  
Total core deposits   16,143     94     16,389     93     11,612     92  
Customer time deposits   1,104     6     1,156     7     1,052     8  
Total customer deposits   $ 17,247     100 %   $ 17,545     100 %   $ 12,664     100 %
 

Total customer deposits were $17.2 billion at June 30, 2022, a $298.2 million decrease from March 31, 2022 primarily due to a $128.7 million decline in short-term transaction related trust deposits and ongoing balance sheet management strategy to sweep $58.8 million in deposits.

Customer deposits increased by $4.6 billion from June 30, 2021 primarily driven by the $4.1 billion of deposits acquired in the combination with Bryn Mawr Trust and strong customer relationships across lending and fee based business lines, including $652.4 million of higher institutional trust deposits from Wealth Management.

Core deposits were a strong 94% of total customer deposits, and no- and low-cost checking accounts represented a robust 58% of total customer deposits, at June 30, 2022. These core deposits predominantly represent longer-term, less price-sensitive customer relationships. More than half of our core deposits, or 56%, from our Commercial, Small Business and Wealth Management customer relationships. The ratio of net loans and leases to customer deposits was 66% at June 30, 2022, reflecting continued significant capacity to fund future loan growth.

Net Interest Income

  Three Months Ending
(Dollars in millions)   June 30, 2022   March 31, 2022   June 30, 2021
Net interest income before purchase accretion   $ 148.4     $ 135.2     $ 93.4  
Purchase accounting accretion   5.2     3.2     7.6  
Net interest income before PPP   153.6     138.4     101.0  
PPP       0.2     5.7  
Net interest income   $ 153.6     $ 138.6     $ 106.7  
             
Net interest margin before purchase accretion   3.29 %   2.94 %   2.91 %
Purchase accounting accretion   0.11     0.07     0.24  
Net interest margin before PPP   3.40     3.01     3.15  
PPP           0.08  
Net interest margin   3.40 %   3.01 %   3.23 %
 

Net interest income increased $15.1 million, or 11% (not annualized), compared to 1Q 2022, primarily due to $9.9 million from the rising interest rate environment, $3.2 million from loan growth and balance sheet mix, and $2.0 million from higher purchase accounting accretion. Net interest income increased $46.9 million, or 44%, compared to 2Q 2021, primarily due to a $55.0 million increase from the balance sheet size and mix due to the combination with Bryn Mawr Trust, offset by $5.7 million from the impact of PPP loans and a $2.4 million decrease in purchase accounting accretion.

Net interest margin increased 39bps from 1Q 2022 attributable to 26bps due to impact from the rising interest rate environment, 9bps from balance sheet mix, and 4bps from higher purchase accounting accretion. Net interest margin increased 17bps from 2Q 2021, due to a favorable increase of 38bps from the balance sheet size and mix, offset by reductions of 13bps from lower purchase accounting accretion and 8bps from PPP loans.

Excess customer liquidity reduced net interest margin by approximately 36bps compared to a reduction of 50bps in 2Q 2021 and 44bps in 1Q 2022. Excess customer liquidity as of June 30, 2022 decreased to $4.1 billion as compared to $4.7 billion at March 31, 2022, primarily driven by a reduced volumes in interest-earning cash from decreases in customer funding of $298.2 million, brokered deposits of $55.7 million, and loan growth of $139.0 million.

Credit Quality

The following table summarizes credit quality metrics as of and for the period ended June 30, 2022 compared to March 31, 2022 and June 30, 2021.

(Dollars in millions) June 30, 2022   March 31, 2022   June 30, 2021
Problem assets   $ 567.5       $ 618.1       $ 624.9  
Nonperforming assets 33.9     37.8     40.1  
Delinquencies 59.5     54.6     54.5  
Net charge-offs 2.6     3.3     4.8  
Total net credit costs (recoveries) (r) 8.0     19.3     (68.1)  
Problem assets to total Tier 1 capital plus ACL 26.24 %   28.79 %   39.73 %
Classified assets to total Tier 1 capital plus ACL 16.65     18.58     26.06  
Ratio of nonperforming assets to total assets 0.16     0.18     0.26  
Ratio of nonperforming assets (excluding accruing TDRs) to total assets 0.10     0.12     0.17  
Delinquencies to gross loans 0.52     0.48     0.66  
Ratio of quarterly net charge-offs to average gross loans 0.09     0.12     0.23  
Ratio of allowance for credit losses to total loans and leases (q) 1.13     1.19     1.59  
Ratio of allowance for credit losses to nonaccruing loans 676     591     551  

See “Notes”

Overall credit metric ratios remained positive and stable during the quarter and continued to reflect the strength of the originated and acquired portfolios. Total problem assets(5) decreased to $567.5 million at June 30, 2022 compared to $618.1 million at March 31, 2022, primarily from upgrades in commercial mortgage loans and our hotel sector. Total problem assets to total Tier 1 capital plus ACL was 26.24% at June 30, 2022, compared to 28.79% at March 31, 2022. Delinquencies to gross loans increased to 0.52% at June 30, 2022 compared to 0.48% at March 31, 2022.

The ratio of nonperforming assets to total assets decreased to 0.16% at June 30, 2022 compared to 0.18% at March 31, 2022. The ratio of nonperforming assets (excluding accruing TDRs) to total assets at June 30, 2022 decreased to 0.10% as compared to 0.12% at March 31, 2022. Net charge-offs for 2Q 2022 were $2.6 million, or 0.09% (annualized) of average gross loans.

Total net credit costs were $8.0 million in the quarter as compared to $19.3 million in 1Q 2022. The decrease in credit costs was primarily due to the initial provision for credit losses of $23.5 million recorded in 1Q 2022 in connection with the combination with Bryn Mawr Trust. The ACL of $142.0 million as of June 30, 2022 increased $5.6 million from March 31, 2022, primarily due to loan growth, partially offset by releases from the sale of KCMI and our acquired residential mortgage run-off portfolio.

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

Core Fee Revenue

Core fee revenue (noninterest income) of $66.0 million increased $5.5 million, or 9% (not annualized), compared to 1Q 2022, primarily driven by increases of $1.9 million in Cash Connect®, $1.9 million from capital markets income, and $1.3 million of other banking fees, including fees associated with our consumer lending partnerships as well as gain on sale of SBA loans.

Core fee revenue increased $22.3 million, or 51%, compared to 2Q 2021, primarily driven by a $17.2 million increase in Wealth Management revenue, of which $15.2 million was attributable to the combination with Bryn Mawr Trust. In addition, the year-over-year increase included $3.5 million of other banking fees, including fees associated with our consumer lending partnerships, gain on sale of SBA loans and traditional bank service fees, $3.4 million in capital markets income, and $0.8 million in Cash Connect®. Partially offsetting the increase was a $2.2 million decline in mortgage banking fees primarily resulting from the decline in refinancing originations compared to the historically higher levels in 2Q 2021.

For 2Q 2022, core fee revenue was 30.0% of core net revenue compared to 30.4% in 1Q 2022 and 29.0% in 2Q 2021, and continues to be well diversified among various sources, including traditional and other banking fees, mortgage banking, capital markets, Wealth Management, and Cash Connect®.

Core Noninterest Expense(6)

Core noninterest expense of $123.7 million for 2Q 2022 increased $0.8 million compared to 1Q 2022 primarily from increases of $3.5 million of higher variable operating costs to support growth in our balance sheet and fee-based businesses. This increase was offset by a decrease of $2.7 million in salaries and benefits as the first quarter's expenses were elevated due to routine annual incentive payments and related costs that were paid during the quarter.

When compared to 2Q 2021, core noninterest expense increased $32.2 million compared to $91.5 million in 2Q 2021, primarily due to higher costs from the acquisition of Bryn Mawr Trust. These higher costs support the overall franchise growth of the combined company, including $15.8 million in salaries and benefits, and $6.2 million in equipment, occupancy and amortization expenses. In addition, there was $4.7 million of higher variable operating costs as described above. Our core efficiency ratio(6) was 56.2% in 2Q 2022, compared to 61.7% in 1Q 2022 and 60.7% in 2Q 2021 primarily due to the impact of higher net interest income.

Income Taxes

We recorded a $22.4 million income tax provision in 2Q 2022, compared to a $1.7 million income tax provision in 1Q 2022 and $31.7 million in 2Q 2021. The effective tax rate was 26.9% in 2Q 2022, compared to 30.5% in 1Q 2022 and 24.9% in 2Q 2021.

The 1Q 2022 elevated effective tax rate was the result of nondeductible merger costs associated with the acquisition of Bryn Mawr Trust. The increase in effective tax rate for 2Q 2022 relative to 2Q 2021 was primarily due to discrete tax expense of $1.4 million related to nondeductible goodwill written off during the sale of BMTIA. Excluding this item, our effective tax rate in 2Q 2022 was 25.2%.

(6) 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 recovery of a legal settlement. 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 15% increase in the quarterly cash dividend to $0.15 per share of common stock. This dividend will be paid on August 19, 2022 to stockholders of record as of August 5, 2022. The Board of Directors also approved an additional share repurchase authorization of 10% of outstanding shares as of June 30, 2022.

During 2Q 2022, WSFS repurchased 1,185,602 shares of common stock for an aggregate of $48.3 million. As of June 30, 2022, including the additional share repurchase authorization, WSFS has 8,615,301 shares, or approximately 14% of outstanding shares, remaining to repurchase under its current authorizations.

WSFS’ total stockholders’ equity decreased $205.1 million, or 8% (not annualized), during 2Q 2022. The decrease was primarily due to a decline in accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI) of $205.1 million from market-value decreases on investment securities resulting from the current rising interest rate environment. Additionally, quarterly earnings of $60.7 million were offset by capital returns to stockholders of $48.3 million from share repurchases described above, and $8.4 million from quarterly dividends.

At June 30, 2022, WSFS Bank’s Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.02%, Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio and Tier 1 capital ratio of 13.60%, and Total Capital ratio of 14.57% were all substantially in excess of the “well-capitalized” regulatory benchmarks.

WSFS’ tangible common equity(7) decreased $192.8 million, or 13% (not annualized) compared to March 31, 2022. WSFS’ common equity to assets ratio was 11.27% at June 30, 2022, and our tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio(7) decreased by 84bps during the quarter to 6.63% primarily due to the reasons described above.

At June 30, 2022, book value per share was $36.41, a decrease of $2.53, or 6% (not annualized), from March 31, 2022, and tangible common book value per share(7) was $20.37, a decrease of $2.62, or 11% (not annualized), from March 31, 2022 primarily due to the reasons described above.

(7) As used in this press release, tangible common equity, tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio 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, insurance and credit and deposit products to individual, corporate, and institutional clients through multiple integrated businesses. Combined, these businesses had $60.3 billion in assets under management (AUM) and assets under administration (AUA) as of June 30, 2022. As previously disclosed, Bryn Mawr Trust will be the prominent brand within our Wealth Management segment.

Wealth Management reported pre-tax income of $20.2 million in 2Q 2022 compared to $15.5 million in 1Q 2022, and $10.7 million in 2Q 2021. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily attributable to net interest income growth in private banking from the favorable interest rate environment, revenue growth in the administrative trust businesses and a decline in certain credit-related and legal expenses. The year-over-year increase was mainly from the combination of Bryn Mawr Trust.

Total revenue (net interest income and fee revenue) was $43.3 million in 2Q 2022, an increase of $4.3 million, or 11% (not annualized), compared to 1Q 2022, and an increase of $22.9 million, or 112%, compared to 2Q 2021. These increases were primarily due to the reasons described above.

The administrative trust businesses revenue was $16.0 million in 2Q 2022, compared to $15.2 million in 1Q 2022, and $10.8 million in 2Q 2021. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily attributable to institutional service organic growth, supported by continued strength in corporate activity and new client relationships which drove a 40.7% increase in deal volume during the first half of 2022, compared to the same period in 2021, as reported by Asset Backed Alert.

The wealth advisory businesses revenue was $14.5 million in 2Q 2022 compared to $14.4 million in 1Q 2022 and $3.9 million in 2Q 2021. Net AUM of $7.6 billion at the end of 2Q 2022 decreased $1.3 billion compared to 1Q 2022, and increased $5.1 billion compared to 2Q 2021. The quarter-over-quarter decline was primarily impacted by the decline in equity and fixed income markets.

Total noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations and excluding provision for credit losses) was $22.8 million in 2Q 2022, compared to $23.8 million in 1Q 2022 and $10.9 million in 2Q 2021. Noninterest expenses decreased $1.0 million from 1Q 2022 and increased $11.9 million from 2Q 2021 primarily due to the reasons described above.

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 over 34,000 non-bank ATMs and retail safes nationwide supplying or servicing approximately $2.0 billion in cash at June 30, 2022. 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 $2.3 million for 2Q 2022, an increase of $0.6 million, or 31% (not annualized), compared to 1Q 2022 driven by increased managed services activity, and a decrease of $0.9 million compared to 2Q 2021 driven by lower ATM vault cash activity and increased operating costs associated with the rising interest rate environment. ROA of 1.26% in 2Q 2022 increased 14bps from 1Q 2022 and decreased 82bps from 2Q 2021 driven by a shift in funding composition mix and lower net income.

Net revenue of $11.6 million in 2Q 2022 was up $1.2 million from 1Q 2022 driven by higher managed service fee revenue and the rising interest rate environment (offset by higher external funding expense). Net revenue was flat year-over-year from 2Q 2021 with higher fee revenue offset by increased cost of funds.

Noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations of expense) was $9.3 million in 2Q 2022, an increase of $0.6 million higher compared to 1Q 2022 driven by armored carrier expense and external funding expense, and $0.9 million higher compared to 2Q 2021 driven by higher external funding and operating expense.

At the end of 2Q 2022, Cash Connect® had approximately $2.0 billion in cash managed, driven by year-over-year growth in remote cash capture and reconciliation units (18% and 15%, respectively).

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, interest rates, inflation, supply chain issues and slowdowns in economic growth, including as a result of the novel coronavirus and its variants ("COVID-19") pandemic; possible additional loan losses and impairment of the collectability of loans; additional credit, fraud and litigation risks associated with our PPP lending activities; economic and financial impact of federal, state and local emergency orders, vaccine mandates 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 or variants thereof, 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 and the potential waning of vaccine effectiveness or effects of low vaccination rates; 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 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, the changing interest rate environment and inflation, that may limit the Company's access to additional funding to meet its liquidity needs; the discontinued publication of London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and the transition to an alternative reference interest rate, such as the Secured Overnight Financing 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, residential, small business and Small Business Administration portfolios and wealth management business following its recent acquisition of Bryn Mawr Trust; 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 recent acquisition of Bryn Mawr Trust; 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, including climate change, and natural disasters such as floods, droughts, wind, tornadoes and hurricanes as well as effects from geopolitical instability, armed conflicts, 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, 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, 2021, the Company's Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2022, 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 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.
