Crane Co. (CR) announced Monday it will cease its efforts to acquire CIRCOR International, Inc. (CIR) and will not extend its tender offer, amended on July 8, 2019, to acquire all outstanding shares of CIRCOR for $48 per share. The offer represents a 57% premium to the undisturbed market close on May 20, 2019.
