Financial report summary

  • Webster may not be able to complete the merger with Sterling, as the completion is contingent upon the satisfaction of a number of conditions, some of which are beyond both Webster's and Sterling's control.
  • While the merger is pending, Webster will be subject to business uncertainties and contractual restrictions that could adversely affect its business and operations.
  • Webster may fail to realize the anticipated benefits of the merger, or those benefits may take longer to realize than expected. Further, following the completion of the merger, Webster may also encounter significant difficulties in integrating with Sterling and its results could suffer if the Company does not effectively manage its operations.
  • Webster is expected to incur substantial expenses related to the merger and integration with Sterling.
Management Discussion
  • The non-GAAP financial measures identified in the preceding table provide both management and investors with information useful in understanding the Company's financial position, operating results, strength of its capital position, and overall business performance. These measures are used by management for internal planning and forecasting purposes, as well as by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties to assess peer company operating performance. Management believes that this presentation, together with the accompanying reconciliations, provides a complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the Company's business and allows investors to view its performance in a similar manner.
