The $6.2 billion-asset First Financial Bancorp (FFBC) will close 10 branches to cut costs, according to a report.

First Financial will close the branches in February, the Hamilton (Ohio) Journal-News reported, citing the Cincinnati-based company.

Three of the targeted branches are located in Fairfield Township, Hamilton and Seven Mile, all located in the suburbs north of Cincinnati. The remaining seven branches to close are located around Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio, and Indiana.

"We are not exiting any markets, and all banking centers will consolidate into an existing nearby banking center location," Jill Wyman, executive vice president and co-chief retail banking officer, told the Journal-News.
