Third-quarter earnings slip at NBT as merger costs rise

NORWICH — NBT Bancorp, Inc., (NASDAQ: NBTB), which recently announced plans to merge with Alliance Financial Corp., saw its earnings drop in the third quarter, primarily due to an increase in merger-related costs.

NBT reported net income of $14.5 million, or 43 cents per share, down 4.5 percent from $15.2 million, or 45 cents, in the third quarter of 2011. Merger-related costs were $600,000 during the quarter, up from $200,000 the previous year, generating a negative impact of 1 cent per share on earnings.

“At NBT, we continue to leverage opportunities to invest in our future success through acquisition, including our expansion into New England and our recently announced merger agreement with Alliance Financial Corp.,” NBT President and CEO Martin Dietrich said in a release announcing the earnings. “Acquiring the Alliance franchise in the greater Syracuse market is an exciting opportunity for strategic expansion that will be a great complement to our existing footprint in Central New York.”
