M&T Bank Corp. has reduced its net income for the fourth quarter by $24 million after settling a lawsuit involving its Wilmington Trust Co. subsidiary.
The adjusted net income is now $203.4 million, or $1.56 a diluted share, down from the $227.4 million, or $1.74 a share, the bank reported Jan. 17. M&T released the revised numbers Wednesday.
The Buffalo-based bank reached a settlement Monday with the heirs of Mennen Co., who sued Wilmington Trust in 2013 and sought $100 million in damages because of alleged investment losses.
The trial was scheduled to begin Tuesday in Delaware Chancery Court.
M&T is the market leader in Rochester with local deposits of $3.8 billion.
