Citizens Financial Group Inc. said Monday that earnings jumped 44%, to $184.6 million, in the fiscal year ended Sept. 30.

The $16.2 billion-asset bank credited the healthy returns to a $27 million after-tax gain on the sale of its third-party mortgage servicing portfolio, continued improvement in the core banking business, and the integration of its New Hampshire bank, acquired in April 1996.
