June 29 (Reuters) - Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce said it would buy Chicago-based PrivateBancorp Inc in a cash-and-stock deal valued at about $3.8 billion to expand its business.

CIBC said on Wednesday it would pay $47 per share for PrivateBancorp. This represents a premium of about 31 percent, based on the closing price of the two companies stocks on Tuesday. (Reporting by Amrutha Gayathri in Bengaluru; Editing by Kirti Pandey)
