Revenue of $2.260 billion, slightly missing the consensus of $2.263 billion. Net income of $531 million came below $702 million a year ago. EPS was $3.09, which came in line with the consensus, according to data from Benzinga Pro.

Expenses were prudently managed in the recent quarter and our selective approach to allocating resources to our strategic priorities with utmost care has not wavered.”

M&T Bank shares gained 4.6% to close at $140.94 on Monday.
