Chevron Corp. is bowing out of the race to take over Anadarko Petroleum Corp., saying Thursday it will instead take a $1 billion termination fee from the company.
"Winning in any environment doesn't mean winning at any cost," Chevron Chief Executive Michael Wirth said in a statement.
Chevron agreed to purchase Anadarko for about $33 billion, but Occidental Petroleum Corp. later offered the oil company $38 billion.
This is a developing story and will be updated shortly.
