St. Louis-based Mercantile Bancshares said Monday it had agreed to acquire a Little Rock super community bank for an estimated $155 million.

The firm said it would swap 4.75 million shares of its stock for TCBankshares, a consumer and small business bank with offices in the northern half of Arkansas. Mercantile said it would assume $12 million of preferred stock as part of the deal, which is expected to be closed next year.
