FRANKFURT Dec 8 China's Fujian Grand Chip
Investment Fund has dropped its offer for German chip equipment
maker Aixtron after U.S. President Barack Obama
stopped the takeover.
Fujian's takeover vehicle Grand Chip Investment said on
Thursday that the offer had lapsed and any contracts based on
the acceptance of the offer would not become effective.
Shares for which investors had already accepted the takeover
offer would be re-booked on Dec. 13, it added.
