"Parties will now process necessary clearances from the competition, take over and other authorities as may be required and depending on the outcome of clearances from the authorities concerned and of transaction negotiations/valuations, undertake next steps," the company said in regulatory filings at stock exchanges.

In a separate statement, Pierer Mobility AG said it will go ahead with preparations under the capital market law.

"Depending on the outcome of the valuation process, the opinion of the Austrian Takeover Commission and the transaction negotiations as well as the clearance by the competition authorities, Pierer Mobility AG will carry out a capital increase through contribution in kind from the existing authorized capital of the company under exclusion of subscription rights by up to 50 per cent of the existing share capital," it added.

Bajaj Auto is the world's third largest manufacturer of motorcycles and the largest manufacturer of three-wheelers. It has a market capitalisation of 1.1 lakh crore which is nearly double of the next largest two-wheeler company in India.
