FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WILMINGTON TRUST ANNOUNCES 2007 FOURTH QUARTER
AND FULL YEAR RESULTS
Corporate Client and Wealth Advisory businesses record double-digit growth
Wilmington, Del., January 18, 2008 — Wilmington Trust Corporation (NYSE: WL) reported today that net income for the 2007 fourth quarter was $44.0 million and earnings per share (on a diluted basis) were $0.65 per share. In comparison, for the 2006 fourth quarter, net income was $47.5 million and earnings per share (diluted) were $0.68.
These results brought net income for the 2007 full year to $182.0 million and earnings per share (diluted) to $2.64 per share. In 2006, net income for the full year was $143.8 million and earnings per share (diluted) were $2.06 per share. The 2006 amounts reflected a non-cash impairment write-down of $72.3 million recorded in the 2006 third quarter against the valuation of affiliate money manager Roxbury Capital Management. Absent this non-cash write-down, full-year net income 2006 would have been $185.5 million and earnings per share (diluted) would have been $2.66 per share.
This release contains and discusses amounts that exclude the effects of the non-cash write-down and presents results on an operating basis. Management believes that operating results (those that exclude the effects of the non-cash write-down) provide a more relevant and comparative basis on which to evaluate the company’s performance. The financial statements in this release contain comparisons of results with and without the non-cash impairment write-down.
Significant factors in fourth quarter 2007 results
  The Corporate Client Services (CCS) business prevailed against the near-absence of capital markets activity and produced revenue that was 12% ahead of the year-ago fourth quarter, and 11% ahead of the 2007 third quarter. For the full year, CCS revenue rose 15%.
  The strength of business development, plus the June 2007 acquisition of an investment consulting firm in Boston, helped the Wealth Advisory Services (WAS) business overcome volatility in the financial markets. WAS revenue was up 15% from the year-ago fourth
