Webster’s business strategy could have an impact on earnings and results of operations.

Webster is focused on a build and buy strategy for growth. From time to time in the ordinary course of business, the Company engages in preliminary discussions with potential acquisition targets. As of the date of this filing, there are no binding or definitive agreements, plans, arrangements, or understandings for such acquisitions by the Company. Although its business strategy includes both internal expansion and acquisitions, there can be no assurance that, in the future, it will successfully identify suitable acquisition candidates, complete acquisitions successfully, integrate acquired operations into existing operations or expand into new markets. Further, there can be no assurance that acquisitions will not have an adverse effect upon the Company’s operating results while the operations of the acquired businesses are being integrated into its operations. In addition, once integrated, acquired operations may not achieve levels of profitability comparable to those achieved by the Company’s existing operations, or otherwise perform as expected. Further, transaction-related expenses may adversely affect the Company’s earnings. These adverse effects on the Company’s earnings and results of operations may have a negative impact on the value of its stock.
