Item 8.01. Other Events.

On May 28, 2009, Webster Financial Corporation (“Webster”) announced that it had commenced an offer to exchange a number of validly tendered and accepted shares of its 8.50% Series A Non-Cumulative Perpetual Convertible Preferred Stock (CUSIP No. 947890307) (“Preferred Stock”) for its common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”), plus a cash payment (collectively, the “Preferred Stock Consideration”) and a number of validly tendered and accepted 7.65% Fixed to Floating Rate Trust Preferred Securities (CUSIP No. 94769YAA7) (the “Trust Preferred Securities,” and together with the Preferred Stock, the “Securities”) of Webster Capital Trust IV, guaranteed by Webster, for shares of its common stock, par value $0.01 per share (together with the Preferred Stock Consideration, the “Offer Consideration”), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Exchange and the related Letter of Transmittal, each dated May 28, 2009.

Webster has received the consent of the United States Department of the Treasury for this exchange offer, subject to certain terms and conditions, including that Webster’s quarterly dividend on its Common Stock shall not exceed $0.01 per share for the next four calendar quarters.

The offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on June 24, 2009, unless extended or earlier terminated by Webster (the “Expiration Date”). Securities that are tendered may be withdrawn at any time prior to the Expiration Date. To receive the Offer Consideration, holders must validly tender and not withdraw their Securities prior to the Expiration Date. Webster will pay the Offer Consideration promptly after the Expiration Date.

The complete terms and conditions of the exchange offer are set forth in the Offer to Exchange and Letter of Transmittal that are being sent to holders of the Securities.

Webster also intends to raise additional common equity in an amount at least equal to the cash portion of the exchange through common stock issuances over time, including through the Dividend Reinvestment and Stock Purchase Plan announced today.

A current computation of Webster’s ratio of earnings to fixed charges and preferred dividends is filed herewith as Exhibit 12.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the press release announcing the exchange offer is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
