German specialty glass maker Schott has announced that it will launch a tender offer for Japanese optical equipment maker Moritex, aiming to acquire more than 50% of outstanding Moritex shares.

Under the tender offer, running from Sept. 25 through Oct. 23, Schott intends to acquire a 51.0% stake in Moritex at 740 yen per share for a maximum total of about 5 billion yen.
