San Antonio’s WellMed is set to expand into the Dallas-Fort Worth area with a deal to acquire Irving-based USMD Holdings Inc.

The transaction for USMD Holdings, a publicly traded company that provides health care services, is valued at almost $255 million, or $22.34 a share. The price is about a 9 percent premium to the closing price of USMD’s stock on Monday — before the transaction was disclosed.

USMD could be required to pay a termination fee of up to $10 million if the transaction fails to close.
