Volkswagen said on Wednesday it was seeking to conclude a domination and profit and loss transfer agreement with MAN SE , which would give it full strategic and financial control over the truck maker.

"The planned step is a further milestone on the road to creating an integrated commercial vehicles group," the company said in a statement.

Volkswagen said it currently holds 75.03 percent of the voting rights in MAN.
