About S&T Bank
S&T Bancorp is the bank holding company for S&T Bank, which serves customers from some 60 branch offices in western Pennsylvania. Targeting individuals and local businesses, the bank offers such standard retail products as checking, savings and money market accounts; CDs; and credit cards. Business loans, including commercial mortgages, make up about three-fourths of the company’s loan portfolio; the bank also originates residential mortgages, construction loans, and consumer loans. Through subsidiaries, S&T Bank sells life, disability, and property/casualty insurance; provides investment management services; and manages the Stewart Capital Mid Cap Fund.
The company’s greater dependence on commercial real estate loans (nearly half of its loan portfolio) during the recession exposed it to larger credit risks, loan charge-offs, and nonperforming loans. Although revenues remained rather steady, net income plummeted some 97% in 2009. As the economy began showing signs of recovery the following year, though, so did S&T Bancorp. A substantial drop in loan loss provisions and net charge-offs helped the company improve results. However, a smaller loan portfolio and new regulations limiting service fees cut into the company’s earnings overall in 2011. Although both interest and noninterest revenues shrunk 8% that year to $209.1 million, net income grew 9% to $47.3 million (though still short of the $60.2 million it netted in 2008).
