(By Balaseshan) PNC Financial Services (NYSE: PNC) reported a 45.8 percent jump in quarterly earnings on customers growth, higher revenue, as well as credit and expense management.

The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based financial services provider earned $719 million or $1.24 per share for the fourth quarter, up from $493 million or $0.85 per share in the comparable period of last year.

The latest quarter results were reduced by $0.47 per share for the net impact of actions taken in the fourth quarter associated with residential mortgage banking activities and other items.

Revenue grew 15 percent to $4.07 billion, as net interest income increased 10 percent and non-interest income climbed 22 percent. The latest quarter revenue continued to reflect strong client fee income and included a gain on sale of a portion of PNC's investment in Visa shares.
