The venture will employ 1,500 staff in 17 locations worldwide to combine semiconductor-based lighting modules, advanced electronics, optics and software expertise with access to sensor technology and innovative light sources, Continental said.

The 50-50 venture, to be called Osram Continental GmbH, will target sales in 2018 in the 500 million euro ($581 million) range, the two companies said in separate statements on Monday.

They have yet to sign binding contracts on the venture or seek approval from antitrust authorities, Osram said.

Osram Continental would therefore be able to offer a broad range of end-to-end, innovative lighting solutions, designed especially for headlight and tail light applications, Continental said.
