(“Warburg Pincus”), Webster agreed to issue certain securities (the “Second Closing Securities”) to Warburg Pincus contingent upon the satisfaction of certain conditions set forth in the Investment Agreement. The Second Closing Securities consist of (i) 3,018,400 shares of common stock; (ii) 44,570 shares of Perpetual Participating Preferred Stock, Series C (“Series C Preferred Stock”), which are mandatorily convertible into 4,457,000 shares of Webster common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”) following receipt of Webster shareholder approvals; (iii) an A-Warrant, Series 2 (the “A2 Warrant”) to purchase 67,819 shares of Series C Preferred Stock prior to the receipt of Webster shareholder approvals or 6,781,900 shares of Common Stock following receipt of Webster shareholder approvals (or in certain circumstances in which Warburg Pincus might otherwise hold more than 24.9% of Webster’s voting securities, shares of Non-Voting Perpetual Participating Preferred Stock, Series D (“Series D Preferred Stock”)); and (iv) a B-Warrant, Series 2 (the “B2 Warrant”) to purchase 43,247 shares of Series C Preferred Stock, which will only become exercisable (at a strike price of $2.50 per underlying common share) if Webster shareholder approvals are not obtained prior to February 28, 2010. The B2 Warrant expires immediately upon receipt of Webster shareholder approvals. The A2 Warrant will initially have a strike price of $10.00 per underlying common share, with the strike price increasing to $11.50 per share on October 15, 2011 and to $13.00 per share on October 15, 2013. Webster issued the Second Closing Securities to Warburg Pincus on October 15, 2009 in consideration for a cash payment of $74,754,000.

Some of these and other factors are discussed in the annual and quarterly reports of Webster previously filed with the SEC.

Except as required by law, Webster does not undertake to update any such forward looking statements.
