SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Regional bank company Zions Bancorp. said Monday that its net income declined 4.3 percent in the third quarter after it repaid the final portion of its federal bailout received during the 2008 financial crisis.

Zions reported net income of $62.3 million, or 34 cents per share, in the July-September quarter. That's down from $65.1 million, or 35 cents per share, in the third quarter of 2011.

Net interest income fell to $444.2 million, from $470.6 million a year earlier.

Last month Salt Lake City-based Zions paid off the final $700 million it owed from the $1.4 billion bailout received during the crisis. The bank had paid back $700 million in March. It was among hundreds of banks that received bailouts from the Treasury Department in late 2008.

Zions has about 500 offices across Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.

Zions shares closed at $21.45, unchanged, in regular trading. The shares rose 10 cents in after-hours trading, to $21.55.
