Highlights for 3Q 2021: 
Core ROA(2) was 1.48% in 3Q 2021 compared to 1.48% for 3Q 2020.
Core EPS(2) was $1.19 in 3Q 2021 compared to $1.00 for 3Q 2020.
Total net credit (recoveries) costs were $(21.1) million during the quarter. Third quarter results reflected a $27.5 million decrease in the allowance for credit losses ("ACL") as overall credit quality improved quarter-over-quarter, including declines in problem assets and delinquencies, and economic forecasts continued to reflect favorable future trends. The ACL coverage ratio was 1.30%, excluding Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") loans, at September 30, 2021.
WSFS Bank maintained its strong capital generation and position with a Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio increasing to 14.59% at September 30, 2021.
Core fee revenue (noninterest income)(2) was $43.4 million, a decrease of $2.3 million compared to 3Q 2020. Despite the year-over-year decline, our core fee revenue as a percentage of core net revenue grew to a strong 29.3% reflective of our diversified business model. Excluding mortgage banking revenue, which was impacted by lower refinance volumes, core fee revenue increased $3.6 million, or 10%, compared to 3Q 2020.
During the quarter we launched our strategic partnership with Upstart, a digital artificial intelligence lending platform specializing in consumer loans.
The Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.13 per share of common stock.
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, our primary regulator, approved the combination with Bryn Mawr on July 21st.



(2) As used in this press release, core ROA, core EPS and core fee revenue (noninterest income) are a non-GAAP financial measure. This non-GAAP financial measure excludes certain pre-tax adjustments and the tax impact of such adjustments.

At September 30, 2021, WSFS’ net loan and lease portfolio decreased $249.2 million when compared with June 30, 2021, including a $156.2 million decrease in PPP loans due to forgiveness. Excluding PPP loans, purposeful run-off portfolios on previously acquired loans, and the ACL, loans and leases decreased $80.1 million, or 4% (annualized). While new loan originations continue to be strong, it was more than offset by higher paydowns in our construction portfolio. This decrease was partially offset by modest increases in our commercial small business leases and consumer portfolios.
Net loans and leases at September 30, 2021 decreased $1.3 billion when compared with September 30, 2020, including a $887.5 million decrease in PPP loans primarily due to forgiveness. Excluding PPP loans, purposeful run-off portfolios, and the ACL, loans and leases decreased $79.4 million, or 1%, year-over-year, primarily due to the higher commercial loan paydowns as described above.

Total customer deposits were $12.7 billion at September 30, 2021, a $64.2 million, or 2% (annualized), increase from June 30, 2021. The increase is primarily due to $238.0 million of seasonally higher public funding deposits, partially offset by a $115.0 million decrease from short term customer deposits and lower Wealth Management deposits from our corporate trust business. Customer deposits increased $1.6 billion, or 14%, from September 30, 2020, reflecting continued elevated deposits from customers who received PPP loans, government stimulus impact and lower customer spending, and an increase in Wealth Management deposits.
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 September 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 63% at September 30, 2021 reflecting significant liquidity capacity.

Net interest income decreased $8.6 million, or 8%, compared to 3Q 2020, due to a $4.8 million decrease in purchase accounting accretion, $3.7 million of lower PPP income due to lower balances from loan forgiveness, and a slight decline from the lower rate environment and balance sheet mix. Net interest income decreased $2.3 million, or 2% (not annualized), from 2Q 2021 due to $3.1 million of lower PPP income due to lower balances from loan forgiveness and a $1.3 million decrease in purchase accounting accretion, partially offset by a $2.1 million increase due to the continued growth of the investment portfolio.

Net interest margin decreased 61 bps from 3Q 2020, including 53 bps from the lower rate environment and balance sheet mix, and 21 bps from lower purchase accounting accretion, partially offset by a 13 bps increase from PPP. Net interest margin decreased 18 bps from 2Q 2021 including 9 bps from the balance sheet mix, 6 bps from lower purchase accounting accretion, and 3 bps from PPP.
Third quarter 2021 results were significantly impacted by continued high levels of excess customer liquidity described below. The additional customer liquidity reduced our net interest margin by approximately 61 bps compared to a reduction of 50 bps in 2Q 2021 and 14 bps in 3Q 2020.
Excess customer liquidity was driven by our strong Customer relationships across all of our business lines. This includes those who previously received PPP loans, government stimulus and had continued lower spending during the pandemic. Compared to the prior year, our excess Customer liquidity has grown by $2.9 billion, with $1.9 billion of the excess Customer liquidity shifting towards optimizing higher earning assets with additional purchases of high-quality agency mortgage-backed securities combined with reductions in our wholesale borrowings of $220.1 million.

Overall credit metrics remained favorable led by the continued improvement of total problem assets(3) which declined to $532.0 million at September 30, 2021 compared to $624.9 million at June 30, 2021, primarily due to a payoff of one large CRE relationship, the sale of two loans in the hotel sector, and improvements in the retail sector. Delinquencies also decreased to $45.4 million at September 30, 2021, or 0.57% of gross loans, compared to $54.5 million at June 30, 2021.
Nonperforming assets increased to $51.8 million at September 30, 2021 primarily due to two commercial relationships totaling $13.0 million (net book value) that were downgraded during the quarter. Net charge-offs for 3Q 2021 were $6.2 million, or 0.31% (annualized) of average gross loans, driven by partial charge-offs on the two downgraded relationships and recoveries from two previously charged-off relationships.
Total net credit (recoveries) costs were $(21.1) million in the quarter compared to $(68.1) million in 2Q 2021, and the ACL decreased to $104.9 million due to the continued future economic recovery captured in our forecasts and overall stable credit trends, with new loan originations offset by portfolio run-off.

Core Fee Revenue
Core fee revenue (noninterest income) was $43.4 million, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 5%, compared to 3Q 2020, which included a $5.9 million decline in mortgage banking fees primarily resulting from the decline in refinancing originations compared to the historically higher levels in 3Q 2020. Excluding the impact of mortgage banking fees, core fee revenue increased by $3.6 million, or 10%, including increases of $2.1 million from Wealth Management fees and $1.0 million from Cash Connect®.
Core fee revenue decreased $0.3 million, or 1%, compared to 2Q 2021, due to a decrease of $1.1 million primarily from valuation adjustments on equity investments and a commercial loan sale in 3Q 2021 and $0.4 million of lower PPP Round Two referral fees, partially offset by a $1.2 million increase in mortgage banking fees.
For 3Q 2021, core fee revenue was 29.3% of core net revenue compared to 28.8% at 3Q 2020, and was diversified among various sources, including traditional banking, mortgage banking, Wealth Management and Cash Connect®.

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

Core Noninterest Expense(4)
Core noninterest expense of $94.4 million for 3Q 2021 increased $3.6 million compared to $90.8 million in 3Q 2020, primarily due to a $4.6 million increase in salaries and benefits reflecting franchise growth and a $1.1 million increase in equipment expense primarily due to higher third-party software expense related to our ongoing delivery transformation initiatives. These increases were partially offset by a $1.2 million decrease in loan workout and other credit costs due to a decrease in unfunded commitment reserves driven by stable credit metrics and $1.1 million from lower miscellaneous operating expenses.
When compared to 2Q 2021, core noninterest expense increased $2.9 million primarily due to $0.9 million higher salaries and benefits, $0.8 million of higher professional fees, and $0.7 million of higher loan workout and other credit costs primarily due to fluctuation in the unfunded commitment reserves driven by increased utilization in the prior quarter.
Our core efficiency ratio(4) was 63.7% in 3Q 2021, compared to 60.7% in 2Q 2021 and 57.1% in 3Q 2020 primarily due to the impact of lower net interest income.
Income Taxes
We recorded a $17.5 million income tax provision in 3Q 2021, compared to a $31.7 million income tax provision in 2Q 2021 and $15.1 million in 3Q 2020. The effective tax rate was 24.3% in 3Q 2021, 24.9% in 2Q 2021, and 23.0% in 3Q 2020.






(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 November 18, 2021 to stockholders of record as of November 4, 2021.
No repurchases of common stock occurred in 3Q 2021 and we expect repurchases will continue to be suspended until the close of the merger with Bryn Mawr. WSFS has 4,381,161 shares, or approximately 9% of outstanding shares, remaining to repurchase under our current authorization.
WSFS’ total stockholders’ equity increased $24.8 million, or 1% (not annualized), during 3Q 2021, primarily due to quarterly earnings, partially offset by a $25.6 million market-value decrease on available-for-sale securities and the dividend on common stock paid during the quarter.
WSFS’ tangible common equity(5) increased $27.4 million, or 2% (not annualized) compared to June 30, 2021 for the reasons described above. WSFS’ common equity to assets ratio was 12.41% at September 30, 2021, and our tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio(5) increased by 4 bps during the quarter to 9.17%.
At September 30, 2021, book value per share was $40.15, an increase of $0.52, or 1%, from June 30, 2021, and tangible common book value per share(5) was $28.59, an increase of $0.57 from June 30, 2021.
At September 30, 2021, WSFS Bank’s Tier 1 leverage ratio of 10.27%, Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio and Tier 1 capital ratio of 14.59%, and Total Capital ratio of 15.50% 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

Combined, these businesses had $27.6 billion in assets under management (AUM) and assets under administration (AUA) as of September 30, 2021. 
Wealth Management reported pre-tax income of $10.1 million in 3Q 2021 compared to $6.0 million in 3Q 2020, and $10.7 million in 2Q 2021.
For 3Q 2021, total revenue (net interest income and fee revenue) was $20.2 million, an increase of $2.7 million, or 15%, compared to 3Q 2020 and a decrease of $0.3 million, or 1%, compared to 2Q 2021. The results were due to continued strong performance across all Wealth Management lines of business.
WSFS Institutional Services®' revenue of $8.6 million in 3Q 2021 was up 14% from 3Q 2020 and down $0.2 million from 2Q 2021. Growth in our corporate trust business was supported by continued strength in the debt securitization market as reflected by a 5% increase in transaction volume relative to 2Q 2021 and new client relationships, partially offset by lower assignment trading fees for the quarter.
Revenue from our advisory businesses, consisting of West Capital Management®, Cypress and WSFS Wealth® Investments, totaled $4.1 million in 3Q 2021 compared to $3.3 million in 3Q 2020, and $3.9 million in 2Q 2021. Net AUM at the end of 3Q 2021 was 13% higher than 3Q 2020 and roughly flat to 2Q 2021 primarily from strong equity market performance and client inflows.
Total noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations and excluding provision for credit losses) was $11.4 million in 3Q 2021, compared to $10.1 million in 3Q 2020 and $10.9 million in 2Q 2021. Noninterest expenses increased $0.5 million from 2Q 2021 and $1.3 million from 3Q 2020 due to higher compensation and benefits, incentive accruals and legal expense. Wealth Management efficiency ratio was 50% in 3Q 2021, compared to 52% in 3Q 2020 and 47% in 2Q 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 $1.7 billion in cash at September 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 $2.8 million for 3Q 2021, a decrease of $0.3 million, or 9%, compared to 3Q 2020 and a decrease of $0.4 million, or 13%, compared to 2Q 2021. These decreases were driven by an increase in operational expenses including personnel and armored carrier services. ROA of 1.75% in 3Q 2021 decreased 33 bps from 2Q 2021 driven by an increase in on-balance-sheet cash, and 71 bps from 3Q 2020 due to the increased on-balance-sheet cash described above and certain nonrecurring items in the prior year.
Net revenue of $11.5 million in 3Q 2021 was up $1.1 million from 3Q 2020 and relatively flat compared to 2Q 2021. The year-over-year increase was driven by higher smart safe and managed service fee revenue.
Noninterest expense (including intercompany allocations of expense) was $8.7 million in 3Q 2021, an increase of $1.4 million compared to 3Q 2020 and $0.3 million compared to 2Q 2021. The year-over-year increase was driven by increased intercompany allocations and armored carrier activity (offset in managed services revenue).
During 3Q 2021, Cash Connect® continued to experience a sustained demand for cash as ATM and smart safe activity remained resilient across the nation. Cash Connect® continues build a strong pipeline for its growing smart safe and cash reconciliation programs, leveraging relationships with national retailers and top financial institutions.

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;

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 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 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’ respective 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 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;

2 Forward Looking Statements: This presentation 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 significant risks and uncertainties (which change over time) and other factors, including our pending acquisition of Bryn Mawr Bank Corporation and the uncertain effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and actions taken in response thereto on our business, results of operations, capital and liquidity, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those currently anticipated. Such risks and uncertainties are discussed in detail in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 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. As used in this presentation, the terms "WSFS", "the Company", "registrant", "we", "us", and "our" mean WSFS Financial Corporation and its subsidiaries, on a consolidated basis, unless the context indicates otherwise. Non-GAAP Financial Measures: This presentation contains financial measures determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). These non-GAAP measures include core earnings per share (“EPS”), core net income, core return on equity (“ROE”), core efficiency ratio, pre-provision net revenue (“PPNR”), core PPNR, PPNR to average assets ratio, core PPNR to average assets ratio, core return on assets (“ROA”), core net interest income, core net interest margin (“NIM”), return on tangible common equity (“ROTCE”), core ROTCE, core fee revenue and core fee revenue as a percentage of total core net revenue. 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 to their comparable GAAP measures, see the Appendix.
