May 17 (Bloomberg) -- Hungarian state-owned development bank MFB Zrt. is offering 4 billion forint ($17 million) for DZ Bank AG’s 38 percent stake in Takarekbank Zrt., news website Index reported, without identifying its sources.

Acquiring the stake in Takarekbank, which is majority owned by Hungarian savings cooperatives, would give the state access to the savings banks’ network of 1,600 branches, more than four times as many as are run by OTP Bank Nyrt., the country’s biggest listed lender, Index said.
