Indiana-based S&T Bancorp Inc., the holding company for S&T Bank, has received the necessary regulatory approval for its pending acquisition of DNB Financial Corp., the holding company for DNB First, the companies said.

The Pennsylvania Department of Banking & Securities approved the definitive merger agreement this week. The closing of the transaction must still be approved by DNB shareholders at a special meeting scheduled for Sept. 25.

The transaction has an estimated aggregate value of $206 million and will expand S&T’s footprint into southeastern Pennsylvania, including Chester, Delaware and Philadelphia counties.

S&T currently has operations in five markets, including Western Pennsylvania, central Pennsylvania, northeast Ohio, central Ohio and upstate New York. DNB First is a community bank headquartered in Downingtown, Chester County, and with 14 locations.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
