Regions Financial Corp. said Wednesday that it had definitively agreed to buy Village Bankshares of Tampa, Fla., for about $55 million.

Regions would exchange 1.34 shares of its common stock for each share of Village Bankshares' common stock. The merger, which will probably be accounted for as a pooling of interests, is expected to be completed during the third quarter.
