HP — The technology company’s stock fell 1% in extended trading after Xerox announced that it was dropping its hostile takeover bid to merge with HP. “The current global health crisis and resulting macroeconomic and market turmoil caused by COVID-19 have created an environment that is not conducive to Xerox continuing to pursue an acquisition of HP,” Xerox said in a statement on Tuesday. HP previously rejected Xerox’s proposals, and Xerox raised its offer to $24 per share in February, which would have valued HP at approximately $34 billion.
