SunTrust Banks Inc. (STI) profit fell in its third quarter as the bank reported additional charges related to its merger with BB&T Corp.

Atlanta-based SunTrust reported a third-quarter profit of $623 million, or $1.34 a share, compared with $752 million, or $1.56 a share, a year ago. Analysts polled by FactSet were expecting $1.40 a share.

The company said its earnings results include a 6 cents a share hit from impacts related to merging with BB&T Corp.

Total revenue rose about 3% to $2.35 billion. Analysts were expecting $2.34 billion.

Net interest income was $1.51 billion, about flat from a year earlier. Analysts expected $1.53 billion, according to FactSet.

Noninterest income rose 8% to $843 million, above the $810 million analysts had expected, driven by higher mortgage-related and investment banking income.

Net interest margin, a profitability metric for banks, was 3.06%, down from 3.27% the same quarter a year earlier.
