Will M&T Bank return to the acquisition game?

When talk of bank mergers surfaces, M&T Bank Corp.'s name understandably comes up.

Over a nearly 30-year period, Buffalo-based M&T made 23 deals to buy other banks or collections of branches, fueling its rise to a top-20 U.S. commercial bank.

It's been seven years since M&T made its last big deal.

Now a massive bank merger is brewing, between BB&T and SunTrust. Neither bank's territory touches the Buffalo area. But the planned $66 billion deal would create the nation's sixth biggest bank, igniting speculation about whether more big industry mergers will follow.

For the past several years, M&T has been in an unfamiliar place in the acquisition game: on the sidelines. The last time M&T struck such a deal was nearly seven years ago, in August 2012, when M&T announced it had agreed to purchase New Jersey-based Hudson City Bancorp.

That deal, however, went anything but smoothly and took years longer to complete than M&T officials expected.

Plum man sentenced to more than 3 years in jail for robbing Mt. Washington bank

A Plum man was sentenced in federal court to three years and four months in jail for robbing a bank in the Mt. Washington section of Pittsburgh.

Senior U.S. District Court Judge David S. Cercone imposed the sentence on Matthew Gallo, 35, with imprisonment followed by three years of supervised release, federal authorities announced Monday.

Gallo was convicted of a charge of bank robbery. The charges stemmed from a Dec. 4, 2017, incident at the First National Bank in Mt. Washington.

Authorities said Gallo passed the teller a note and made off with about $730.

The FBI received two separate tips identifying Gallo as the robber.

He was arrested by Allegheny County Sheriff deputies on Jan. 10, 2018, on an unrelated matter, and later confessed to the robbery, authorities said.

Federal authorities said Gallo also identified himself as the robber in a surveillance photograph.

The FBI, Pittsburgh police and the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Office conducted the investigation through Project Safe Neighborhoods, which is part of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts.

Where can I find real estate agents available in Pittsburgh to help search for rentals?

I am moving from out of the area, and have already spent a day looking at apartments, but am disappointed in what I have seen. I graduated college and am going to be working for a bank, so I would like to get away from college-standard living.

Call any real estate agency and ask if they can help find a rental. Not all of them do, but they should be able to refer you to another agency if necessary.
