WSFS Reports 4th Quarter And Full Year 2012 Net Income; Full Year EPS Increased 43% Above 2011 Levels; ROA Improved 30% Over 2011

Net loans increased $23.9 million, or 1%, compared to December 31, 2011.  This increase included growth of $44.9 million, or 2%, in total commercial loans, partially offset by reductions of $28.1 million in residential mortgage loans. The year-over-year comparison was impacted by the Company's successful dispositions of a significant amount of problem loans during the year, including the second quarter of 2012 Asset Strategies initiative.

The following table summarizes current loan balances and composition compared to prior periods.

Asset quality continues to fundamentally improve

The Bank's ratio of classified assets to total Tier 1 capital plus the allowance for loan losses ("ALLL") was 36.8%, a continued improvement from 43.4% at September 30, 2012 and 52.2% at December 31, 2011. Total problem loans (all criticized, classified and nonperforming loans) improved during the quarter to 52.5% of Tier 1 capital plus ALLL compared to 59.7% at September 30, 2012 and 84.8% at December 31, 2011. These improvements reflect positive loan risk-rating migration, continued problem asset disposition efforts and prudent credit management.
