Oracle says target BEA Systems canceled meeting

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Oracle Corp ORCL.O said on Friday that business software maker BEA Systems Inc BEAS.O canceled a meeting scheduled today and declined attempts to reschedule.

Oracle, which has a made a $6.7 billion offer to buy BEA, also said that it remained “committed to its proposed price of $17 per share.” BEA earlier on Friday rejected Oracle’s bid, saying it seriously undervalued it.
