(Compares results with estimates, adds first-quarter details)
April 12 (Reuters) - PNC Financial Services Group Inc's first-quarter profit met analysts' estimates on Friday, as a rise in expenses and provision for credit losses overshadowed growth in interest income and loans.
The lender's expenses rose 2 percent to $2.58 billion, while provision for loan losses more than doubled to $189 million from a year ago.
Net interest income rose about 5 percent to $2.48 billion, helped by higher interest rates.
PNC Financial, one of the largest U.S. lenders by assets, said its loan portfolio grew about 5 percent to about $232 billion, with commercial lending accounting for nearly 68 percent of total loans.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based PNC's net income attributable to shareholders rose 2.7 percent to $1.20 billion in the first quarter ended March 31. Earnings per share came in at $2.61, in line with analysts' expectations, according to IBES data from Refinitiv. 1/8https://reut.rs/2ZaNZvF 3/8
