TORONTO (Reuters) - Canadian telecom services provider Mitel Networks Corp MNW.TO (MITL.O: Quote) said on Monday it has withdrawn its bid to buy smaller U.S. peer ShoreTel Inc (SHOR.O: Quote), after ShoreTel refused to engage in any talks regarding a potential transaction.
Earlier this month, Mitel had raised its bid for ShoreTel by some $34 million to about $574 million, in an attempt to spur ShoreTel into discussions.
