WEBSTER REPORTS THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

WATERBURY, Conn., October 22, 2009 – Webster Financial Corporation (NYSE: WBS), the holding company for Webster Bank, N.A., today announced a consolidated net loss of $19.2 million and net loss available to common shareholders of $26.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2009. For the first nine months of 2009, the consolidated net loss was $61.9 million and net loss available to common shareholders was $30.9 million.

Key points for the quarter:

Strong deposit growth of $426 million in the quarter; up $1.7 billion year to date.

Improved loan-to-deposit ratio of 83 percent compared to 88 percent at June 30, 2009.

Improved core to total deposit ratio of 69 percent compared to 65 percent at June 30, 2009.

Improved net interest margin of 3.18 percent compared to 3.04 percent for the second quarter of 2009.

Increased the allowance for credit losses to 2.97 percent of total loans; recorded $85.0 million in provision for credit losses and net charge-offs of $64.6 million.

Higher core pre-tax, pre-provision earnings of $56 million compared to $51 million for the second quarter.

The Warburg Pincus investment announced on July 27, 2009 added $40 million of common equity during the quarter. The remaining $75 million investment in common equity, non-voting perpetual participating preferred stock, and warrants was completed on October 15, 2009 after receipt of regulatory approval.

Webster Chairman and Chief Executive Officer James C. Smith said, “Webster reported progress on several fronts in the quarter. Capital levels continue to improve and are well in excess of all regulatory requirements; earnings before credit provisions increased by 10 percent; and deposits and deposit market share are on the rise. We saw significant improvement in the net interest margin, loan delinquencies were flat for the third consecutive quarter and overall performance was solid considering the challenging environment”

Warburg Pincus investment

 

   

During the third quarter, Webster announced that the global private equity firm, Warburg Pincus, would make a $115 million investment in Webster’s common stock. An initial amount of $40 million in the form of 4.0 million common shares was invested on July 27, 2009. The remaining $75 million was invested on October 15, 2009 with $30 million in the form of 3.0 million common shares and $45 million in junior non-voting preferred stock, which converts into an additional 4.5 million common shares, subject to the receipt of shareholder approval, 6.8 million seven-year A-Warrants, Series 2, which initially have a strike price of $10.00 per 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; and 4.3 million seven-year B-Warrants, Series 2 with a strike price of $2.50 per share which will only become exercisable and transferable if shareholder approval is not received by February 28, 2010. The B-Warrants, Series 2 will expire immediately upon receipt of shareholder approval. This investment, coupled with the successful exchange offer for convertible preferred stock and trust preferred securities completed during the second quarter, has allowed Webster to increase common equity by $285 million with minimal dilution to tangible book value.

 

   

Including the initial $40 million realized under the Warburg Pincus investment during the third quarter, Webster’s ratio of Tier 1 common to risk-weighted assets was 6.39 percent at September 30, 2009 and including the recently funded $75 million on a proforma basis, would have been 6.93 percent at September 30, 2009.

Smith said, “The recent approval by the Fed and funding of the balance of the Warburg Pincus investment has significantly boosted our capital position subsequent to the quarter end. We are pleased to have this transaction completed and to have Warburg as an investor in Webster”.

Net interest income

 

   

Net interest margin improved to 3.18 percent in the third quarter compared to 3.04 percent in the second quarter; the increase reflects a 28 basis point decline in the cost of funds offsetting a 12 basis point decline in the yield on interest-earning assets.

 

   

Average interest-earning assets totaled $16.2 billion, up from $16.0 billion last quarter.

Provision for credit losses

 

   

$56.5 million of the provision for credit losses recorded in the quarter was related to the Company’s continuing portfolios and $28.5 million was related to the discontinued liquidating portfolio.

 

   

Net charge-offs were $64.6 million in the quarter compared to $49.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2009; $51.4 million was related to the continuing portfolios and $13.2 million was related to the discontinued liquidating portfolio.

Noninterest income

 

   

Deposit service fees increased by $0.9 million from last quarter, reflecting seasonality in account usage.

 

   

Wealth and investment services revenues increased by $0.1 million from the last quarter, primarily from an increase in the value of assets under management.

 

   

Loan related fees declined by $0.8 million from the last quarter, reflective of lower application volumes and amendment fees in the quarter.

 

   

Mortgage banking revenue declined by $2.0 million from the last quarter from decreased mortgage lending activity in the period.

 

   

Net loss on sale of investment securities totaled $4.7 million as $4.9 million of pooled trust preferred securities were sold for tax purposes.

 

   

Other income increased by $2.2 million primarily from higher credit card referral fees, direct investment income and receipt of insurance proceeds.

 

   

Loss of $1.3 million on the write-down of investments on certain pooled trust preferred securities to fair value based on credit deterioration in certain underlying issuers.

Noninterest expenses

 

   

Noninterest expenses, inclusive of severance and other one time costs and the special FDIC assessment, declined $3.0 million from the second quarter. The second quarter included $8.0 million in FDIC special assessment and $1.3 million in

severance and other charges, while the third quarter included $4.1 million in such charges. Included in the third quarter charges is the establishment of a $3.1 million reserve for fraud which had no customer impact and excludes any consideration of recovery.

Income taxes

 

   

Due to the pre-tax loss, the effective tax rate for the third quarter was not meaningful. The Company recorded a $22.0 million tax benefit in the quarter on the $41.3 million pre-tax loss applicable to continuing operations in the period.

Investment securities

 

   

Total investment securities were $4.6 billion at September 30, 2009 compared to $4.2 billion at June 30, 2009. The carrying value of the available for sale portfolio included $4 million in net unrealized losses compared to $53 million at June 30, 2009, while the carrying value of the held to maturity portfolio does not reflect $103 million in net unrealized gains at September 30 compared to $33 million at June 30, 2009.

Loans

 

   

Total loans were $11.3 billion at September 30, 2009 compared to $11.6 billion at June 30, 2009. In the third quarter, residential mortgage, consumer, commercial and commercial real estate loans declined by $38.9 million, $64.4 million, $164.2 million and $20.8 million, respectively.

 

   

The discontinued liquidating portfolio of indirect home equity and national construction loans, included in the consumer and residential loan portfolios, declined by $18.5 million from June 30, 2009 to $231.3 million and $5.8 million, respectively.

Asset quality

 

   

Total nonperforming loans were $361.1 million or 3.19 percent of total loans at September 30, 2009 compared to $350.4 million or 3.02 percent at June 30, 2009. The increase in nonperforming loans reflects a combined increase of $12.9 million in performing non-accrual residential mortgages and consumer loans, an increase of $30.9 million in non-accrual commercial real estate loans and a combined decrease of $33.1 million in all other categories.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of net income and other performance ratios, as adjusted, is included in the accompanying selected financial highlights table.

We believe that providing certain non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with information useful in understanding our financial performance, our performance trends and financial position. Specifically, we provide measures based on what we believe are our operating earnings on a consistent basis and exclude non-core operating items which affect the GAAP reporting of results of operations. We utilize these measures for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We, as well as securities analysts, investors and other interested parties, also use these measures to compare peer company operating performance. We believe that our presentation and discussion, together with the accompanying reconciliations, provides a complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business and allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to management. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for GAAP basis measures and results and we strongly encourage investors to review our consolidated financial statements in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names.
