Revenue was reported at $1.2 billion, up 10% from last year. Analysts expected revenue of $1.12 billion.

MTB’s CFO commented, “revenues were up in most major categories, led by exceptional growth in mortgage banking. We continued to extend credit throughout the communities we serve, and as a result, loans rose an impressive $6.5 billion or 11% from the end of 2011, all while improving our capital base and expanding the services we offer our customers. The fourth quarter was a continuation of those trends, positioning us well for continued success in 2013.”
