INFORMATION TO BE INCLUDED IN REPORT

Section 8 – Other Events

Item 8.01                      Other Events.

On November 18, 2011, a purported class action (“Joy v. Wilmington Savings Fund Society, FSB” (WSFS Bank, a subsidiary of WSFS Financial Corporation) Case N. N11C-11-185 JRJ) was filed in the Delaware Superior Court for New Castle County.  The Complaint challenges WSFS Bank’s practices relating to its assessment and collection of overdraft fees on checking accounts.  Damages are sought for the statute of limitations period applicable to the claims made in the suit, and include restitution of overdraft fees paid to the Company, actual damages allegedly sustained by customers, punitive damages, and attorney’s fees.  This case is nearly identical to numerous other lawsuits that have been brought by a small handful of class action litigators.  The Company has discovered more than 120 other overdraft suits that recently have been brought against US banks.

The Company strongly believes that its overdraft practices are fair to its customers and comply fully with all applicable laws and regulations.  The Company believes this suit is without merit and intends to vigorously defend the pending action.
