MANCHESTER, Conn., Aug. 3 -- Scan-Optics Inc. has reached an agreement in principle to acquire 100 percent of the stock in Agissar Corp. for an undisclosed amount. James C. Mavel, president, CEO and chairman of Scan-Optics, said, The parties are working diligently to complete the acquisition documents and expect to complete the transaction in the next few weeks. The acquisition will support Scan-Optics' strategy to provide information capture and customer service solutions to select vertical industries.
