Oracle (ORCL) dropped its $17-a-share bid for BEA Systems (BEAS) when a deadling set by the larger company passed.

"BEA shareholders should not assume that Oracle will renew its $17 per share offer in the future," Oracle said in a statement quoted by Reuters.

Now BEAS shareholders can watch their stock fall to $13.
