img CaixaBank (CABK) SA, Spain’s fourth- biggest lender, agreed to buy Banca Civica SA (BCIV), a group of former savings banks, for 977 million euros ($1.3 billion) as an overhaul of the nation’s financial industry gathers pace.

CaixaBank’s all-stock offer values Civica at 1.97 euros a share, or 0.35 times book value, the buyer said in a statement late yesterday. The transaction, in which Civica investors get five CaixaBank shares for every eight of their bank’s shares, is priced 11 percent below its March 23 closing price.
