NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
NOTE 1: Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation
The Consolidated Interim Financial Statements include the accounts of Webster Financial Corporation (“Webster” or the “Company”) and its subsidiaries. The Consolidated Interim Financial Statements and Notes thereto have been prepared in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. All significant intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The results of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2005 are not necessarily indicative of the results which may be expected for the year as a whole.
The preparation of the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, as of the date of the Consolidated Interim Financial Statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses for the periods presented. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Material estimates that are susceptible to near-term changes include the determination of the allowance for loan losses and the valuation allowance for the deferred tax asset. These Consolidated Interim Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the audited Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes thereto included in Webster’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2004.
NOTE 2: Stock-Based Compensation
At September 30, 2005 and 2004, Webster had a fixed stock-based compensation plan that covered employee and non-employee directors. Effective January 1, 2002, the fair value recognition provisions of SFAS No. 123, Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation, were adopted on a prospective basis, for all stock options granted January 1, 2002 and thereafter. Prior to this date, the provisions of APB No. 25 and related interpretations were applied for option grant accounting. Therefore, the expense related to stock-based compensation for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2004 differs from the expense that would have been recognized if the fair value based method had been applied to all option grants since the original effective date of SFAS No. 123. Awards under the plan, in general, vest over periods ranging from 3 to 4 years. As of January 1, 2005, all stock options granted prior to the implementation of SFAS No. 123 are fully vested.

Webster also grants restricted stock to senior management and directors. The cost of restricted stock granted is also included in compensation and benefits expense and totaled $404,000 and $295,000, net of taxes, for the three months ended September 30, 2005 and 2004, respectively, and $1.1 million and $878,000, net of taxes for the nine months ended September 30, 2005 and 2004, respectively.
See Note 17, Recent Accounting Pronouncements, for information regarding a newly released pronouncement concerning stock-based compensation accounting.
NOTE 3: Purchase and Sale Transactions
The following purchase and sale transactions have been completed during 2005. The results of operations of the acquired companies are included in the Consolidated Statements of Income subsequent to the date of the completion of the acquisition.
Eastern Wisconsin Bancshares, Inc.
On September 7, 2004, Webster announced its entry into the health savings account business through a definitive agreement to acquire Eastern Wisconsin Bancshares, Inc. (“EWBI”), the holding company for State Bank of Howards Grove (“State Bank”), headquartered in Howards Grove, Wisconsin. This transaction closed on February 28, 2005. The acquisition makes Webster one of the largest custodians and administrators of health savings accounts in the United States. The purchase price was approximately $27 million in cash. The State Bank had $163 million in assets and $144 million in deposits, including $95 million in health savings account deposits at the time of the agreement.
A definitive agreement was announced on February 8, 2005 whereby Webster would divest State Bank’s two retail branches and related loans and deposits and retain the health savings account operation. The health savings account division operates under the name of HSA Bank, a division of Webster Bank. The branch sale closed on April 15, 2005.
J. Bush & Co.
On June 29, 2005, Webster announced the completion of its acquisition of the assets of J. Bush & Co., a New Haven based investment management firm. J. Bush & Co., which will retain its current name and operate as a division of Webster’s wealth and investment advisors group, brings to Webster over $200 million in assets under management.

Unrealized losses on fixed income and equity securities result from the cost basis of securities being greater than current market value. This can be caused by an increase in interest rates since the time of purchase or from deterioration in credit quality of the issuer. Eighty securities had an unrealized loss for twelve consecutive months or longer due to interest rates being higher at September 30, 2005 than at the time of purchase. Approximately 98 percent of the unrealized loss was concentrated in forty mortgage-backed and three corporate securities. Mortgage-backed securities are rated AAA or carry an implied AAA credit rating. Two corporate securities are unrated but have undergone an internal credit review. One corporate security is A rated, but has never been downgraded. As a result of our credit review of the issuers, we have determined that there has been no deterioration in credit quality subsequent to purchase. Based on our experience with these types of investments and our financial strength, we have the ability to hold these investments to maturity or full recovery of the unrealized loss.
Management will continue to evaluate impairments, whether caused by adverse interest rate or credit movements, to determine if they are other-than-temporary. The determination will be based on the severity of unrealized loss, length of time of impairment and the financial condition and near-term prospects of the issuer.
NOTE 5: Loans Held for Sale
Loans held for sale totaled $247.4 million and $147.2 million at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, respectively. Included in the September 30, 2005 balance are approximately $1.1 million of consumer loans. Included in December 31, 2004 balance is approximately $534,000 of commercial loans. The remainder of the loans held for sale at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004 are residential mortgages.
At September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, residential mortgage origination commitments totaled $431.5 million and $284.4 million, respectively. Residential commitments outstanding at September 30, 2005 consisted of adjustable rate and fixed rate mortgages of $79.1 million and $352.4 million, respectively, at rates ranging from 1.0% to 13.5%. Residential commitments outstanding at December 31, 2004 consisted of adjustable rate and fixed rate mortgages of $55.1 million and $229.3 million, respectively, at rates ranging from 1.0% to 8.5%.

At September 30, 2005, loans included $24.3 million of net premiums and $35.7 million of net deferred costs, compared with $20.5 million of net premiums and $32.1 million of net deferred costs at December 31, 2004. The unadvanced portions of residential and commercial construction loans totaled $466.7 million and $523.3 million at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, respectively.
At September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, unused portions of home equity credit lines extended were $1.4 billion and $1.2 billion, respectively. Unused commercial and commercial real estate lines of credit, letters of credit, standby letters of credit, equipment financing commitments and outstanding commercial loan commitments totaled $2.7 billion at September 30, 2005 and $2.9 billion at December 31, 2004. Consumer loan commitments totaled $54.1 million and $53.3 million at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, respectively.
At September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, Webster Bank serviced for others residential and commercial loans totaling $1.4 billion and $1.6 billion, respectively.
Webster is a party to financial instruments with off-balance sheet risk to meet the financing needs of its customers and to reduce its own exposure to fluctuations in interest rates. These financial instruments include commitments to extend credit and commitments to sell residential first mortgage loans and commercial loans. These instruments involve, to varying degrees, elements of credit and interest-rate risk in excess of the amount recognized in the Consolidated Statements of Condition. See Note 15 for further discussion.
The estimated fair value of commitments to extend credit is considered insignificant at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004. Future loan commitments represent residential and commercial mortgage loan commitments, commercial loan and equipment financing commitments, letters of credit and commercial and home equity unused credit lines. The interest rates for these loans are generally established shortly before closing. The interest rates on home equity lines of credit adjust with changes in the prime rate.
A majority of the outstanding letters of credit are performance standby letters of credit within the scope of FASB Interpretation No. (“FIN”) 45. These are irrevocable undertakings by Webster, as guarantor, to make payments in the event a specified third party fails to perform under a nonfinancial contractual obligation. Most of the performance standby letters of credit arise in connection with lending relationships and have a term of one year or less.

14


Table of Contents

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
The risk involved in issuing stand-by letters of credit is essentially the same as the credit risk involved in extending loan facilities to customers, and they are subject to the same credit origination, portfolio maintenance and management procedures in effect to monitor other credit and off-balance sheet products. At September 30, 2005, Webster’s standby letters of credit totaled $208.8 million and their fair value is not material to the unaudited interim financial statements.

During the first quarter of 2005, $9.0 million of core deposit intangibles with an amortization period of 7 years were added as a result of the Eastern Wisconsin Bancshares acquisition described in Note 3. Approximately $4.4 million of this amount relates to deposits held in the two retail branches that were divested on April 15, 2005, resulting in a net addition of $4.6 million with respect to this acquisition.
Amortization of intangible assets for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2005, totaled $5.0 million and $14.9 million, respectively. Estimated annual amortization expense of current intangible assets with finite useful lives, absent any impairment or change in estimated useful lives, is summarized below.

NOTE 9: Deferred Tax Asset
The tax effects of temporary differences that give rise to significant portions of the deferred tax assets and liabilities at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004 are summarized below. Temporary differences result from the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. A 100% valuation allowance has been applied to the deferred tax assets applicable to Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island due to uncertainties of realization.

Management believes it is more likely than not that Webster will realize its net deferred tax asset, based upon its recent historical and anticipated future levels of pre-tax income. There can be no absolute assurance, however, that any specific level of future income will be generated.

Webster Bank had additional borrowing capacity of approximately $1.2 billion from the FHLB at September 30, 2005 and $651.6 million at December 31, 2004. Advances are secured by a blanket security agreement against certain qualifying assets, principally residential mortgage loans. At September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, Webster Bank had unencumbered investment securities available to secure additional borrowings. If these securities had been used to secure FHLB advances, borrowing capacity at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004 would have been increased by an additional $650.7 million and $913.6 million, respectively. At September 30, 2005, Webster Bank was in compliance with the FHLB collateral requirements.

NOTE 14: Business Segments
Webster has two operating segments for purposes of reporting business line results. These segments are Retail Banking and Commercial Banking. The balance of the activity is reflected in Other. The methodologies and organizational hierarchies that define the business segments are periodically reviewed and revised. During the third quarter of 2005, Webster reevaluated its reportable segments and combined Wealth and Investment Services into the Retail Banking segment. Wealth and Investment Services accounted for less than one percent of the consolidated total assets and revenues. The third quarter and first nine months of 2004 have been restated, to reflect changes in the organizational hierarchies adopted and reflected in the results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2005. The following table presents the statement of income and total assets for Webster’s reportable segments.

Included in the Retail Banking segment is Retail and Business Banking, Consumer Finance, Wealth Management and Insurance. The growth in net interest income for the quarter and nine months can be attributed to the increases in the residential and consumer loan portfolios as well as growth in retail deposits, including HSA Bank. The increase in noninterest income is primarily in deposit services fees from NSF charges and HSA account fees. Noninterest expenses also rose as a result of acquisitions, de novo branch expansion and infrastructure costs.
The Commercial Banking segment includes middle market, specialized, equipment financing, asset-based lending and Commercial Real Estate. During 2004, the segment also included financial advisory services prior to the sale of Duff & Phelps. Net interest income was flat quarter to quarter, while growth for the nine months of 2005 was due to growth in equipment financing and middle market loans. Noninterest income’s decline is due to the sale of Duff & Phelps in March 2004. The increase in noninterest expense reflects the continued investment in commercial activities.
Other includes the Treasury unit, which is responsible for managing the wholesale investment portfolio and funding needs. It also includes expenses not allocated to the business lines, the residual impact of methodology allocations such as the provision for loan losses and funds transfer pricing, which are further discussed below.
Management uses certain methodologies to allocate income and expenses to the business lines. Funds transfer pricing assigns interest income and interest expense to each line of business on a matched maturity funding concept based on each business’s assets and liabilities. The provision for loan losses is allocated to business lines on an “expected loss” basis. Expected loss is an estimate of the average loss rate that individual credits will experience over an economic cycle, based on historical loss experiences and the grading assigned each loan. This economic cycle methodology differs from that used to determine our consolidated provision for loan losses, which is based on an evaluation of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses considering the risk characteristics in the portfolio at a point in time. The difference between the sum of the provisions for each line of business determined using the expected loss methodology and the consolidated provision is included in Other. Indirect expenses are allocated to segments. These expenses include administration, finance, technology and processing operations and other support functions. Taxes are allocated to each segment based on the effective rate for the period shown.

NOTE 15: Derivative Financial Instruments
At September 30, 2005, Webster had outstanding interest rate swaps with a notional amount of $803 million. These swaps are hedging FHLB advances, repurchase agreements, senior notes and subordinated debt and qualify for fair value hedge accounting using the short cut method under SFAS No. 133. The swaps are used to transform these liabilities from fixed to floating rate. Of the total, $50 million of the interest rate swaps mature in 2006, $200 million in 2007, $203 million in 2008, $200 million in 2013 and $150 million in 2014 and an equivalent amount of the hedged liabilities mature on these dates.
Additionally, Webster Bank had outstanding $200 million of swaptions, which give it the right, but not the obligation, to enter into $200 million of interest rate swaps, paying 6.15% fixed and receiving one month LIBOR. These swaptions are carried at fair value and mature in 2007. Changes in fair value are reflected in noninterest income.
Webster Bank transacts certain derivative products with its customer base. These customer derivatives are generally offset with matching derivatives with other counterparties. Exposure with respect to these derivatives is largely limited to nonperformance by either of the parties in the transaction – the customer or the other counterparty. The notional amount of customer derivatives and the offsetting counterparty derivatives each totaled $238.1 million at September 30, 2005. The customer derivatives and the offsetting matching derivatives are marked to market and any changes in fair value are reflected in noninterest income.
Certain derivative instruments, primarily forward sales of mortgage-backed securities (“MBSs”), are utilized by Webster Bank in its efforts to manage risk of loss associated with its mortgage loan commitments (“rate locks”) and mortgage loans held for sale. Prior to the closing and funds disbursement on a single-family residential mortgage loan, an interest-rate locked commitment is generally extended to the borrower. During such time, Webster Bank is subject to risk that market rates of interest may change. If market rates rise, investors generally will pay less to purchase such loans resulting in a reduction in the gain on sale of the loans or, possibly, a loss. In an effort to mitigate such risk, forward delivery sales commitments, which obligate the Company to deliver whole mortgage loans to various investors or issue MBSs, are established. At September 30, 2005, outstanding rate locks totaled approximately $240.6 million and the residential mortgage held for sale portfolio totaled $246.3 million. Forward sales, which include mandatory forward commitments of approximately $298.4 million and best efforts forward commitments of approximately $112.5 million at September 30, 2005, establish the price to be received upon the sale of the related mortgage loan, thereby mitigating certain interest rate risk. Webster Bank will still have certain execution risk, that is, risk related to its ability to close and deliver to its investors the mortgage loans it has committed to sell.
The rate locks are recorded at fair value, with changes in fair value recorded in current period earnings. The changes in the fair value of forward sales commitments are also recorded to current period earnings. Loans held for sale are carried at the lower of aggregate cost or fair value. The changes in the fair value of rate locks and forward sales commitments are adjusted monthly based upon market interest rates.

Webster plans to contribute at least an amount equal to the greater of the contribution required to meet the minimum funding standards under Internal Revenue Code Section 412 or the amount necessary to avoid an additional minimum liability as defined in SFAS No. 87 and No. 132. Additional contributions will be made as deemed appropriate by management in conjunction with the plan’s actuaries. In May 2005, a contribution of $10.0 million was made to fund the pension plan.
NOTE 17: Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In April 2005, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued rules that amend the compliance dates for Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 123R, Share-Based Payment. Under SFAS No. 123R, calendar year companies that are not small business issuers were required to adopt this standard in the third quarter of 2005. However, the new SEC rule allows companies to implement SFAS No. 123R at the beginning of their next fiscal year, instead of next reporting period, that begins after June 15, 2005. For companies with a calendar year end, the new compliance date is January 1, 2006. As Webster has already adopted the provisions of SFAS No. 123, the delayed compliance date and adoption of SFAS No. 123R will not have a significant impact on its consolidated financial statements.
In May 2005, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued SFAS No. 154, Accounting Changes and Error Corrections, which changes the requirements for accounting for and reporting a voluntary change in accounting principle. SFAS No. 154 requires retrospective application of such changes to prior periods’ financial statements unless it is impractical to do so. This statement is effective for accounting changes and correction of errors made in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2005.

ITEM 2.   MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Forward Looking Statements
This report contains forward looking statements within the meaning of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Actual results could differ materially from management expectations, projections and estimates. Factors that could cause future results to vary from current management expectations include, but are not limited to, general economic conditions, legislative and regulatory changes, monetary and fiscal policies of the federal government, changes in tax policies, rates and regulations of federal, state and local tax authorities, changes in interest rates, deposit flows, the cost of funds, demand for loan products, demand for financial services, competition, changes in the quality or composition of Webster’s loan and investment portfolios, changes in accounting principles, policies or guidelines, and other economic, competitive, governmental and technological factors affecting Webster’s operations, markets, products, services and prices. Some of these and other factors are discussed in Webster’s annual and quarterly reports previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Such developments could have an adverse impact on Webster’s financial position and results of operations. Except as required by law, Webster does not undertake to update any such forward looking statements.
Description of Business
Webster Financial Corporation (“Webster” or the “Company”), a bank holding company and financial holding company under the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, as amended, was incorporated under the laws of Delaware in 1986. Webster, on a consolidated basis at September 30, 2005, had assets of $17.8 billion and shareholders’ equity of $1.6 billion. Webster’s principal assets are all of the outstanding capital stock of Webster Bank, National Association (“Webster Bank”) and Webster Insurance, Inc. (“Webster Insurance”). Webster, through its various non-banking financial services subsidiaries, delivers financial services to individuals, families and businesses throughout southern New England and eastern New York State, and equipment financing, asset-based lending, mortgage origination and insurance premium financing throughout the United States. Webster Bank provides commercial banking, retail banking, health savings accounts (“HSAs”), consumer financing, mortgage banking, trust and investment services through 154 banking offices, 293 ATMs and its Internet website (www.websteronline.com). In 2004, Webster Bank converted from a federal savings bank to national bank charter, regulated by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Webster’s common stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol of “WBS”. Webster’s financial reports can be accessed through its website within 24 hours of filing with the SEC.
Critical Accounting Policies
The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements included in the 2004 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Management has identified accounting for the allowance for loan losses, valuation of goodwill/other intangible assets and analysis for impairment, deferred income taxes and pension and other post retirement benefits as our most critical accounting policies and estimates in that they are important to the portrayal of our financial condition and results, and they require management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgment as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. These accounting policies, including the nature of the estimates and types of assumptions used, are described throughout this Management’s Discussion and Analysis and the Management’s Discussion and Analysis included in the 2004 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Summary
Webster’s net income was $46.6 million in the third quarter compared to $49.4 million in the year-ago quarter. Net income per diluted share was $.86 compared to $.92 a year ago. For the first nine months of 2005, net income was $140.4 million compared to $137.5 million a year ago. Net income per share was $2.59 and $2.73 in the respective periods. Average diluted shares outstanding are higher for the first three quarters of 2005 as a result of shares issued in connection with the acquisition of FIRSTFED.
Included in net income are gains on the sale of securities. In the third quarter, these gains represented $.01 per share compared to $.07 a year ago. For the first nine months of 2005, securities gains were $.03 per share compared to $.22 a year ago. The reduced level of securities and securities gains in 2005 is consistent with Webster’s emphasis on delivering high quality earnings. In addition, expenses equivalent to $.03 per share in the third quarter and $.08 in the first nine months of 2005 were incurred in support of Webster’s core infrastructure conversion project.
The increase in net interest income for the quarter and nine months is attributable to the growth in the loan portfolio and the improvements in the net interest margin. Noninterest income, excluding securities gains, also increased due to higher deposit service fees and loan and loan servicing fees. Offsetting these was the increase in noninterest expenses. The impact of acquisitions and the cost of strategic investments in de novo branch expansion and the core system conversion contributed to the growth in expenses.
The provision for loan losses declined for the quarter and nine months as a result of lower net charge-offs. The allowance for loan losses was 1.27% of total loans at September 30, 2005 compared to 1.28% a year ago.

Cash Earnings
Cash net income was $51.3 million in the third quarter compared to $53.8 million in the year-ago quarter. Cash net income per diluted share was $.95 compared to $1.00 a year ago. For the first nine months of 2005, cash net income was $154.5 million compared to $149.5 million a year ago. Cash net income per share was $2.85 and $2.96 in the respective periods.
Cash net income is a non-GAAP financial measure that adds back the non-cash expenses of stock-based compensation and intangible amortization expense, net of taxes, to reported net income. We believe that providing cash net income provides investors with information useful in understanding our financial performance, our financial trends and financial position. The following table reconciles net income and earning per share (“EPS”) as reported to cash net income and EPS.

The increases over the prior year periods reflect growth in the loan portfolio, fully funded by deposit growth and a higher net interest margin.

Table of Contents

The following table describes the extent to which changes in interest rates and changes in the volume of interest-earning assets and interest-bearing liabilities have impacted interest income and interest expense during the periods indicated. Information is provided in each category with respect to changes attributable to changes in volume (changes in volume multiplied by prior rate), changes attributable to changes in rates (changes in rates multiplied by prior volume) and the total net change. The change attributable to the combined impact of volume and rate has been allocated proportionately to the change due to volume and the change due to rate.

Webster’s net interest margin for the quarter (annualized tax-equivalent net interest income as a percentage of average earning assets) improved 20 basis points to 3.26% and for the nine months increased 25 basis points to 3.30%. These increases reflect the impact of higher interest rates on earning assets over the past year and the benefit of the balance sheet deleveraging program in the fourth quarter of 2004. The deleveraging program involved the sale of $750 million of lower-yielding, fixed rate investment securities with the proceeds used to prepay approximately $500 million of higher-costing, floating rate FHLB advances and $250 million of overnight borrowing. The recent interest rate environment, with longer-term interest rates not rising at the same level as short-term rates, resulted in a 6 basis point decline in the net interest margin to 3.26% from 3.32% in the second quarter.
Interest Income
Total interest income, on a fully tax-equivalent basis, for the third quarter increased $31.1 million, or 16.0%, from the prior year and $107.7 million, or 20.1%, for the first nine months of 2005. Higher interest rates had a favorable impact on earning assets yields and accounted for most of the increase in interest income. Also contributing to the increase in interest income was the growth in the loan portfolio. Total loans were $12.2 billion at September 30, 2005, an increase of $622 million, or 5.4%, over a year ago. Commercial loans increased $392 million, or 15.2%, and consumer loans increased $144 million, or 5.6%. Partially offsetting this was the decline in the securities portfolio resulting from the balance sheet deleveraging program The yield on earning assets for the third quarter increased by 73 basis points due to the higher interest rate environment than in the year ago and for the first nine months increased 63 basis points from the prior year. The loan portfolio accounted for the majority of the increase, as its yield increased 64 basis points.
Interest Expense
Total interest expense for the third quarter increased $22.1 million, or 30.9%, from the prior year and for the nine months increased $57.7 million, or 29.9%. The volume increase in deposits together with a higher interest rate environment and a shift in deposit mix to higher-costing certificates of deposit were the primary reasons for the increase. Total deposits increased $1.2 billion, or 11.7%, at September 30, 2005 over a year earlier. The cost of interest bearing liabilities to increase 55 basis points in the quarter compared to the year ago period, and for the nine months was up 39 basis points over the prior year. The growth in deposits was used to reduce the amount of borrowings. Despite this decrease, the higher interest rate environment in 2005 caused the cost of borrowings to increase in both the quarter and the nine months.

Provision for Loan Losses
Management performs a quarterly review of the loan portfolio and based on this review determines the level of provision necessary to maintain an adequate loan loss allowance. Several factors influence the amount of the provision, primarily growth and mix in the loan portfolio, net charge-offs, the risk of loss on nonperforming and classified loans and the level of economic activity. The provision for loan losses was $2.0 million for the quarter and $7.5 million for the first nine months, compared to $4.0 million and $14.0 million for the same periods a year ago. The reduction in the provision was primarily the result of the reduced level of net charge-offs. Net charge-offs in the third quarter and first nine months of 2005 were $1.8 million and $2.6 million compared to $2.3 million and $7.6 million for the same periods a year earlier. The annualized net charge-off ratio for the current quarter was 0.06% of average total loans, down from 0.08% a year earlier.
At September 30, 2005, the allowance for loan losses totaled $155.1 million, or 1.27% of total loans, compared with $150.1 million, or 1.28%, at December 31, 2004.
For further information, see the “Loan Portfolio Review and Allowance for Loan Loss Methodology”, included in the “Financial Condition – Asset Quality” section of Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations on pages 35 through 36 of this report.
Noninterest Income
Total noninterest income was $56.0 million for the three months, a decline of $3.1 million, or 5.3%, and for the nine months totaled $162.7 million, a decline of $8.2 million, or 4.8%. These declines are primarily the result of lower security gains, which were $1.1 million for the quarter and $2.6 million for the nine months compared with $5.8 million and $17.0 million for the same periods a year ago. Also contributing to the decline for the nine months was the loss of revenue in financial advisory services which totaled $3.8 million which resulted from the sale of Duff and Phelps in the first quarter of 2004. Adjusted for these items, noninterest income increased $1.6 million, or 3.0%, for the quarter and $9.9 million, or 6.6%, for the first nine months from the same periods a year ago.
Revenues from deposit service fees were up in the quarter and nine months primarily in NSF fees and as a result of the acquisitions of FIRSTFED, First City and HSA Bank. Loan and loan servicing fees were up as a result of acquisitions and higher loan prepayment fees, primarily in the first just quarter of 2005.
Noninterest Expenses
Total noninterest expenses for the third quarter were $114.9 million, an increase of $11.2 million, and for the first nine months were $336.2 million, an increase of $43.1 million over the prior year. The acquisition of FIRSTFED, First City and HSA contributed additional expenses of $2.9 million in the quarter and $23.6 million for the nine months, while the de novo branch expansion program contributed $1.3 million and $3.9 million, respectively. Non-recurring costs related to the conversion and installation of a new core systems contributed an additional $2.2 million of expenses in the quarter and $6.9 million for the year. The balance of the increase reflects higher employee related costs and investments in technology to support Webster’s new core systems.
Income Taxes
Income tax expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2005 is lower than the prior year period primarily due to an increase in tax exempt income. For the third quarter of 2005, the lower income tax expense reflects a lower level of earnings before taxes and an increase in tax exempt income. The effective tax rates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2005 were approximately 32.1% and 32.1%, respectively, compared to 32.0% and 32.7% in the year ago periods. The majority of the decline in the effective tax rate can be attributed to the higher level of tax-exempt income during the current year period due to an increase in the municipal securities portfolio.

Financial Condition
The increase in total assets reflects the Company’s balance sheet management program to increase the tangible capital ratio. During the year, deposit growth funded the increase in loans and the excess was used to reduce borrowings.
Total assets were $17.8 billion at September 30, 2005 compared with $17.0 billion at December 31, 2004. Most of the increase occurred in loans, loans held for sale and investment securities. At the same time, total deposits increased $1.1 billion, including approximately $199 million in health savings account deposits from the acquisition of HSA Bank. Excess deposit growth over asset growth was used to reduce total borrowings which declined almost $326 million during the period.
Total equity was $1.6 billion at September 30, 2005, up $91.9 million from December 31, 2004. This increase was primarily due to net income of $140.4 million, reduced by $39.3 million of dividend payments to common shareholders and a $16.3 million increase in the net unrealized loss on available for sale securities. The tangible capital ratio was 5.45% at September 30, 2005, compared to 5.21% at December 31, 2004 and 4.92% at September 30, a year ago.
Securities Portfolio
Webster maintains an investment portfolio that is primarily structured to provide a source of liquidity for its operating needs, to generate interest income and provide a means to balance interest rate sensitivity. At September 30, 2005 the investment portfolio totaled $3.8 billion, or 21.5% of total assets, compared with $3.7 billion, or 21.9%, at December 31, 2004 and $4.5 billion, or 25.2%, at September 30, 2004. The portfolio increase since December 31, 2004 is the result of purchases of $843.4 million during the year consisting mostly of securities classified as available for sale. This was offset by repayments and sales proceeds totaling $712.8 million and $22.9 million of unrealized losses on the available for sale portfolio. At both September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, the portfolio consisted primarily of mortgage-backed securities. The average duration of the total portfolio was 2.8 years at September 30, 2005 compared with 3.0 years at December 31, 2004.
Loan Portfolio
At September 30, 2005, total loans were $12.2 billion, up $484.5 million from the total at December 31, 2004. Most of the growth was in commercial loans which grew $393.8 million. Strong growth occurred in Middle Market, where loans were up $109.6 million, asset-based loans grew by $170.2 million and equipment finance by $104.7 million. Commercial Real Estate loans were flat at $1.7 billion as growth in the portfolio was offset by pay-offs as borrowers refinanced in the capital markets at more favorable rates and terms. Consumer loans totaled $2.7 billion, up $102.4 million from December 31, 2004, as increases in fixed-rate second mortgages were partially offset by reductions in home equity credit lines as consumers appear to have refinanced into lower yield first mortgages. Residential mortgages increased $37.0 million as we decided to add loans to the portfolio during the quarter.
Commercial loans (including commercial real estate) represented 38.1% of the total loan portfolio, up from 36.7% at year end, while residential mortgage loans declined to 39.4% from 40.8%. The remaining portion of the loan portfolio consisted of home equity and other consumer loans.
The following highlights the lending activities in the various portfolios during the quarter. For a more complete description of Webster’s lending activities and credit administration policies and procedures, refer to Webster’s 2004 Annual Report on Form 10-K, pages 4 and 5.

Commercial Lending
Middle Market
At September 30, 2005, Middle Market loans, including commercial and owner-occupied commercial real estate, totaled $1.2 billion compared to $1.0 billion at December 31, 2004 and $1.1 billion at September 30, 2004. Originations for the third quarter and nine months of 2005 totaled $70.0 million and $343.0 million as compared to $104.7 million and $220.4 million for the same periods in 2004.
Asset-Based Lending
Webster Business Credit Corporation (“WBCC”) is Webster’s asset-based lending subsidiary. At September 30, 2005, asset-based loans totaled $718.1 million compared to $547.9 million at year end and $620.9 million at September 30, 2004. During the third quarter and first nine months of 2005, WBCC funded loans of $107.3 million and $210.0 million, with new commitments of $236.9 million and $405.8 million, compared to funding of $29.4 million and $101.0 million, with new commitments of $110.8 million and $343.5 million, for the same periods in 2004. In its direct originations, WBCC generally establishes depository relationships with the borrower through cash management accounts. At September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, the total of these deposits was $24.6 million and $39.6 million, respectively.
Business and Professional Banking
The Business and Professional Banking Division administers a CT/NY portfolio of approximately $469.1 million at September 30, 2005, a 6.9% increase from $438.8 million at December 31, 2004. At September 30, 2005, the aggregate portfolio totaled $711.9 million, a 3.3 % increase from $689.2 million at December 31, 2004. Included in the portfolio is $357.6 million of loans secured by commercial real estate. Originations for the third quarter and first nine months of 2005 totaled $69.0 million and $219.4 million compared to $58.1 million and $167.0 million in the same periods in 2004. Webster Bank is a leader among Connecticut-based banks for providing loans of $1 million and under to small businesses in the state. At September 30, 2005, small business deposit balances totaled $1.3 billion, compared to $1.2 billion at December 31, 2004.
Equipment Financing
Center Capital Corporation (“Center Capital”), a nationwide equipment financing company, has a portfolio which totaled $732.4 million at September 30, 2005, compared to $627.7 million at December 31, 2004 and $597.8 million at September 30, 2004. Total loans originated were $110.7 million and $296.5 million during the third quarter and first nine months of 2005, respectively, compared to $99.3 million and $245.5 million during the same periods a year ago.
Insurance Premium Financing
Budget Installment Corp. (“BIC”) finances commercial property and casualty insurance premiums for businesses throughout the United States. Total loans outstanding at September 30, 2005 were $77.2 million compared to $79.7 million at December 31, 2004, and $75.8 million a year ago. Loans originated in the third quarter and first nine months of 2005 totaled $49.9 million and $152.1 million, respectively, compared to $53.3 million and $153.1 million for the same periods in 2004.
Commercial Real Estate Lending
At both September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, commercial real estate loans totaled $1.7 billion. Included in these loans are owner-occupied real estate loans originated and administered by the Middle Market and Business and Professional Banking divisions of $671.8 million at September 30, 2005, $581.7 million at December 31, 2004 and $645.2 million a year ago. The balance of the portfolio is administered by the Commercial Real Estate division. During the third quarter and first nine months of 2005, this group’s originations totaled $73 million and $189 million, as compared to $132 million and $358 million in the same periods a year earlier. The portfolio was significantly affected by prepayments during the year as loans were refinanced in the capital markets at attractive rates and terms.

Consumer Finance
Mortgage Banking and Residential Mortgage Loans
For the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2005, originated residential mortgage loans totaled $780.3 million and $2.0 billion compared to $432.1 million and $1.4 billion for the same periods in 2004. During the third quarter of 2005, long-term interest rates fell and application activity increased, positively impacting the third quarter volume. A majority of this originated loan volume, including servicing, is sold in the secondary market. At September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, there were $246.3 million and $146.7 million, respectively, of residential mortgage loans held for sale in the secondary market. See Notes 5 and 6 of Notes to Consolidated Interim Financial Statements within this report for further information.
The residential mortgage loan portfolio totaled $4.8 billion at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004. At September 30, 2005, approximately $1.5 billion, or 32% of the total residential mortgage loan portfolio, was adjustable rate loans. At September 30, 2005, approximately $3.3 billion, or 68% of the total residential mortgage loan portfolio, was fixed rate.
Consumer Loans
At September 30, 2005, consumer loans totaled $2.7 billion, an increase of $102.4 million, or 3.9%, compared to December 31, 2004. Originations during the third quarter and first nine months of 2005 totaled $297.0 million and $844.3 million, compared to $253.1 million and $743.6 million for the same periods a year earlier. The shift in consumer preference from floating rate home equity products to fixed rate mortgage loans is the primary reason the portfolio remained relatively flat despite an increase in originations.
Asset Quality
Loan Portfolio Review and Allowance for Loan Loss Methodology
Webster devotes significant attention to maintaining asset quality through conservative underwriting standards, active servicing of loans and aggressive management of nonperforming and classified assets. The allowance for loan losses is maintained at a level estimated by management to provide adequately for probable losses inherent in the current loan portfolio. Probable losses are estimated based upon a quarterly review of the loan portfolio, loss experience, specific problem loans, economic conditions and other pertinent factors which, in management’s judgment, deserve current recognition in estimating loan losses. In assessing the specific risks inherent in the portfolio, management takes into consideration the risk of loss on nonperforming loans and classified loans, including an analysis of the collateral for these loans.
The adequacy of the allowance is subject to judgment in its determination. Actual loan losses could differ materially from management’s estimate if actual loss factors and conditions differ significantly from the assumptions utilized. These factors and conditions include the general economic conditions within Webster’s marketplace and nationally, trends within industries where the loan portfolio is concentrated, real estate values, interest rates and the financial condition of individual borrowers. While management believes the allowance for loan losses is adequate at September 30, 2005, actual results in future periods may prove different and these differences could be significant. Management considers the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses to be a critical accounting policy.
See the Allowance for Loan Losses Methodology section within Management’s Discussion and Analysis on pages 28 through 30 of Webster’s 2004 Annual Report on Form 10-K for additional information.

Nonperforming Assets
The amount of nonperforming assets increased to $60.4 million, or 0.34% of total assets, at September 30, 2005 from $39.2 million, or 0.23% of total assets, at December 31, 2004, and was up from $40.0 million, or 0.22% of total assets, at September 30, 2004.

Total nonperforming assets
  $ 60,355       39,166       39,993  
 
The increase in nonperforming loans of $16.6 million in the current quarter was primarily the result of the migration of four credits. Two of the loans are commercial real estate related and two are commercial. Management considers three of these loans well secured and does not expect to realize losses from their resolution. The fourth loan is secured, however on a liquidation basis a collateral shortfall may exist. The loan was written down to its estimated net realizable value at September 30, 2005. Any further loss is subject to the ultimate resolution of bankruptcy proceedings.
The allowance for loan losses at September 30, 2005 represented 265% of nonperforming loans compared with 416% at December 31, 2004 and 401%, at September 30, 2004. For additional information on the allowance, see Note 7 of Notes to Consolidated Interim Financial Statements elsewhere in this report.

Deposits
Total deposits increased $1.1 billion, or 10.3% to $11.7 billion at September 30, 2005 from December 31, 2004. All of the increase occurred in higher-costing retail certificates of deposit. With the increase in interest rates, there has been a shift in deposit mix as customers seek the higher yields available in this deposit product. Also contributing to the growth since year end was the acquisition and growth in health savings accounts, which totaled $199 million at September 30, 2005, de novo branches which contributed $198 million of new deposits since year end and a funding diversification strategy, which raised deposits through the issuance of institutional certificates of deposit and Eurodollar deposits. The percentage of total deposits representing core deposits decreased to 60.3% at September 30, 2005, from 66.5% at December 31, 2004.
Borrowing and Other Debt Obligations
Total borrowed funds, including other long-term debt, decreased $326.0 million, or 6.9%, to $4.4 billion at September 30, 2005 from December 31, 2004. The decrease is primarily a result of deposit growth outpacing loan growth with the excess funds utilized to reduce wholesale borrowings. See Notes 11 and 12 of Notes to Consolidated Interim Financial Statements for additional information.
Asset/Liability Management and Market Risk
Interest rate risk is the sensitivity of earnings to changes in interest rates and the sensitivity of the economic value of interest-sensitive assets and liabilities over short-term and long-term time horizons. The Asset/Liability Management Committee manages interest rate risk to maximize net income and net economic value over time in changing interest rate environments, within limits set by the Board of Directors. Management measures interest rate risk using simulation analyses to measure earnings and equity at risk. Earnings at risk is defined as the change in earnings from a base scenario due to changes in interest rates. Equity at risk is defined as the change in the net economic value of assets and liabilities due to changes in interest rates compared to a base net economic value. Economic value is measured as the net present value of future cash flows. Simulation analysis incorporates assumptions about balance sheet changes such as asset and liability growth, loan and deposit pricing and changes to the mix of assets and liabilities. Key assumptions relate to the behavior of interest rates and spreads, prepayment speeds and the run-off of deposits. From such simulations, interest rate risk is quantified and appropriate strategies are formulated and implemented.
Interest rate risk simulation analyses cannot precisely measure the impact that higher or lower rate environments will have on net income or net economic value. Actual results will differ from simulated results due to timing, magnitude and frequency of interest rate changes, changes in cash flow patterns and market conditions, as well as changes in management’s strategies. Results may also vary based upon actual customer loan and deposit behaviors as compared with those simulated. These simulations assume that management does not take any action to mitigate any negative effects from changing interest rates.
The following table summarizes the estimated impact that gradual 100 and 200 basis point changes in interest rates over a twelve month period starting September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004 might have on Webster’s net income for the subsequent twelve month period.
                                 
    -200 bp   -100 bp   +100 bp   +200 bp
 
September 30, 2005
    -3.1 %     -0.7 %     -0.4 %     -1.0 %
December 31, 2004
    -9.7 %     -3.3 %     +0.4 %     -0.1 %
Interest rates are assumed to change up or down in a parallel fashion and net income results are compared to a flat rate scenario as a base. The flat rate scenario holds the end of the period yield curve constant over the twelve month forecast horizon. Webster is well within policy limits for all scenarios. The reduction in risk to falling rates since the end of 2004 is due primarily to higher interest rates which have reduced mortgage prepayment risk in the securities and loan portfolios. We are also farther away from assumed deposit rate floors as rates have risen. The current interest rate scenario anticipates rates will rise gradually throughout 2006.

The book value of assets exceeded the estimated economic value at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004 because the equity at risk model assigns no value to goodwill and other intangible assets, which totaled $703.7 million and $694.2 million, respectively.
Changes in net economic value are primarily driven by changing durations of assets and liabilities. Durations are primarily driven by changes in long- term rates. While short-term rates have risen about 150 basis points since year end, long-term rates are up by about 10 basis points. As noted in the table above, the estimated volatility in economic value of equity has changed positively from year end for a 100 basis point fall in interest rates as the customers’ economic incentive to prepay mortgage assets decreased and rates are farther away from assumed deposit rate floors. The increase in the +100 basis point scenario was due to a small extension in asset duration from 1.8 to 2.0 years.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Liquidity management allows Webster to meet its cash needs at a reasonable cost under various operating environments. Liquidity is actively managed and reviewed in order to maintain stable, cost-effective funding to support the balance sheet. Liquidity comes from a variety of sources such as the cash flow from operating activities, including principal and interest payments on loans and investments, unpledged securities, which can be sold or utilized as collateral to secure funding and by the ability to attract new deposits. Webster’s goal is to maintain a strong increasing base of core deposits to support its growing balance sheet.
Management monitors current and projected cash needs and adjusts liquidity, as necessary. Webster has a detailed liquidity contingency plan, which is designed to respond to liquidity concerns in a prompt and comprehensive manner. It is designed to provide early detection of potential problems and details specific actions required to address liquidity risks.

At September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004, FHLB advances outstanding totaled $2.1 billion and $2.6 billion, respectively. Webster Bank is a member of the FHLB system and had additional borrowing capacity from the FHLB of approximately $1.2 billion and $651.6 million at September 30, 2005 and December 31, 2004 respectively. In addition, unpledged securities could have been used to increase borrowing capacity at the FHLB by an additional $651 million at September 30, 2005 or used to collateralize other borrowings, such as repurchase agreements.
The main sources of liquidity at the holding company are dividends from Webster Bank, investment income and net proceeds from capital offerings and borrowings. The main uses of liquidity are the payment of dividends to common stockholders, repurchases of common stock, purchases of investment securities and the payment of interest on borrowings and capital securities. There are certain regulatory restrictions on the payment of dividends by Webster Bank to the holding company. At September 30, 2005, $202.8 million of retained earnings were available for the payment of dividends to the holding company. Webster also maintains $75 million in available revolving lines of credit with correspondent banks.
On July 23, 2002 and July 22, 2003, Webster announced stock buyback programs of 2.4 million shares and 2.3 million shares, respectively, or approximately 5 percent of its outstanding common stock as of each announcement date. Through September 30, 2005, Webster has repurchased 1,979,983 shares under the buyback programs, with 2,720,017 remaining shares to be repurchased.
