Glacier Bancorp, Kalispell, Mont., has agreed to buy Hub Financial Corp., Helena, for about $13.6 million of stock, the company announced last week.

Glacier, with $575 million of assets, operates four community banks in 13 Montana communities. Buying Hub Financial, the parent of Valley Bank of Helena, would give Glacier a presence in the state capital, said Glacier president and chief executive officer John S. MacMillan. He said that Valley Bank, like Glacier's other subsidiaries, would retain its name and staff.
