Motorola Inc to buy out 80 percent stake in Japan's Vertex Standard

Motorola Inc. will purchase an 80 percent stake in a Japanese maker of two-way radio equipment for $108 million (74.5 million EUR).

MI Inc., a Motorola subsidiary, will launch a tender offer to acquire Vertex Standard Co. and will form a joint venture with Tokogiken, a privately held company controlled by Vertex Standard's president and chief executive officer.

Tokogiken will control the remaining 20 percent of Vertex Standard.

"This joint venture will enable Motorola and Vertex Standard to deliver an enhanced combined product offering to new regions and customers worldwide," Mark Moon, senior vice president of Motorola's government and commercial markets said in a statement.

Motorola shares fell 26 cents to $17.69 in midday trading.
